NORTH CONWAY, NH – The summit of New England’s highest peak is starting to look like winter.
On Thursday, the Mount Washington Observatory shared photos of an ice scene with hoarfrost clinging to various structures on the summit.
The observatory wrote on social media, “This morning, winter bared its teeth and beauty behind a strong cold front.
Hoarfrost is made up of supercooled water droplets that freeze when they touch an object.
The mountain weather forecast calls for even colder weather with the possibility of snow.
Weather observer and meteorologist Alexis George posted: “Temperatures are likely to drop to the high 20s, with higher peaks likely to see icing overnight on Thursday.” “Uphill showers could turn to snow Thursday night and early Friday morning as the snow line drops to about 5,000 feet.”
