Mount Washington Observatory, ‘Home of the World’s Worst Weather'

Brian Fitzgerald
Director of Science and Education
Mt. Washington Observatory
North Conway, NH

Back on April 12, 1934, weather observers at the fledging nonprofit Mount Washington Observatory recorded a world-record wind gust of 231 MPH, which still stands as the fastest wind speed directly observed by humans on the surface of the Earth. Since then, MWO has amassed one of North America’s longest-running climate records with 24/7/365 human-verified measurements in one of the harshest environments on the planet. Join MWO’s Director of Science & Education, Brian Fitzgerald, and he shares about the climate of Mount Washington, how this historic mountaintop weather station operates, and current research and product testing projects happening on the “Rockpile.”
