Life and Work at Mount Washington Observatory on Thursday, April 23 at 6:30 PM.

With bitter cold, dense fog, heavy snow, and record winds, 6288-foot Mount Washington is New England’s highest peak and is known for unpredictable and dangerous weather. But why, for a mountain its size, does Mount Washington actually see the World’s Worst Weather? Join Mount Washington Observatory's Will Broussard for a hands-on session that will focus on the unique weather of the summit as well as the weather observers who man the observatory year-round. This program will combine interactive demonstrations, weather instruments, images, and video footage to bring the Mount Washington summit to Laconia. We will explore how the mountain's weather works and what it can tell us about our own unique New England weather patterns.
