    Summit temp is still dropping. Current conditions page now reads -34.5F as of 800am (time is wrong on that page). When this morning's low of of -36F was recorded the current conditions page was above -33F.

    Windchill records are not kept. If they were you would probably be looking at the record today. You are withing a few degrees of the monthly record with high winds.

    The big news comes out at 1pm. At that time we'll know if the March temperature record was broken. I'm guessing no. Maybe a tie, maybe -37F. But I was pleasantly wrong this morning.

    When you say it "comes out" @ 1pm is it posted on the main website? www.mountwashington.org?

    It's embedded in the metar code that can be seen if you click on the "weather" tab. They take the observation between 12:45 and 1:00, but it may not be visible on the internet until 1:15. At the end of the metar code look for the five digit number beginning with 21. The following three numbers is the low in Celsius.

    Or just wait until they update the web comments.

    And now its the valley's turn, right on queue.

    As of 7am...

    Berlin, NH: -29F
    Whitefield, NH: -33F
    Saranac Lake, NY: -35F

    Still another hour of good cooling to come so we might see lower temperatures.

    I believe that that -35 in Saranac Lake is a new March record for them...although it's tough to find reliable info on that town. The all-time NY state low for March is -41; Saranac Lake could challenge that this Thursday night/Friday morning when temps are supposed to drop to -35 there again.

    And that -37 at MWO the other day was not just 1 degree off the MWO March record, but also the NH state record for March. Here are the March record lows for some NE states:

    NH: -38, Mt. Washington (1950)
    VT: -37, St. Albans (1938)
    NY: -41, Chazy (1938)
    MA: -22, West Cummington (1943)
    ME: -40, Lac Frontiere (1943)
    CT: -24, Coventry (1967)

    and here are what I believe to be the coldest temps for those states thus far THIS March:
    NH: -37, Mt. Washington (1 off state monthly record)
    VT: -15, Rutland (22 off state monthly record)
    NY: -35, Saranac Lake (6 off state monthly record)
    MA: -7, Pittsfield (15 off state monthly record)
    ME: -23, Fryeburg (17 off state monthly record)
    CT: 3, several places (27 off state monthly record)
