At this time the Mount Washington Observatory has decided to suspend our publicized afternoon Higher Summit’s Forecast in both written and recorded forms. The decision has been made in an effort to discourage backcountry travel and support the closures of the backcountry areas. Our morning forecasts will still be provided, as this weather information is important to the general public’s use close to home, educational purposes, and decision making for valley entities. We look forward to resuming normal operations in the future and will keep you up to date with changes.
