MWO Featured on The Weather Channel as a “Job Worth Weathering”

Tune in Monday night at 8 PM ET for "Abrams & Bettes Beyond the Forecast" to see the Observatory in action!

MOUNT WASHINGTON, NH - December 1, 2006 - Mount Washington Observatory's weather station, located on the tallest peak in the Northeast, is getting a special visit this weekend from The Weather Channel. Stephanie Abrams, host of Abrams & Bettes, and her camera crew will be heading up to the summit via snow tractor to feature the Mount Washington Observers in the channel’s debut of "Jobs Worth Weathering" series, kicking off nationally Monday night.

The Weather Channel’s special series is looking at, “tales of those who endure tumultuous weather conditions and consider it all in a day's work.” The series debuts this Monday with the typical day’s work of the people who live and work in “the world’s worst weather” — the mountaintop staff of Mount Washington Observatory. To really capture what goes into a day’s work on the summit, Abrams will be shadowing the Observers as they perform their usual duties in Mount Washington’s dynamic weather conditions.

“The Weather Channel has great interest in Mount Washington’s amazing extremes and I’m delighted that we’re able to host them at the Observatory,” says Scot Henley, Mount Washington Observatory executive director. “To showcase the hard work of our mountaintop staff on national television is a great boost for our organization. It’s always beneficial to have members of the media take interest in us, as it also draws attention to our region as a tourist destination and to New Hampshire as a whole.”

This winter is a record-breaking season for the Observatory when it comes to media visits. This winter the summit will be hosting visits from The Weather Channel, National Geographic, Time Magazine, Outdoor Life Network, the CBS Early Show, Reuters News Service, The Associated Press and CBS 3 Springfield (MA). Abrams & Bettes’ “Jobs Worth Weathering” series featuring Mount Washington Observatory will air this Monday night at 8PM on The Weather Channel.

Experiencing dynamic winter conditions on the summit firsthand is the opportunity of a lifetime for many weather enthusiasts. The Observatory offers one-of-a-kind overnight educational programs throughout the winter. These “EduTrips” include transportation to and from the summit of Mount Washington in the Observatory’s 12-passenger Bombardier snow tractor, overnight accommodations, all meals and an educational component with themes such as climate change, mountain photography, weather, ecology and many more. These adventures provide participants the opportunity to be immersed into life on the summit of Mount Washington—one of the harshest and most exhilarating winter environments on the planet.

Mount Washington Observatory is a private, non-profit, member-supported organization with a mission to advance understanding of the natural systems that create the Earth's weather and climate. Since 1932, the Observatory has been monitoring the elements in one of the most extreme locations on Earth, using this unique site for scientific research and educational outreach.
