Mt. Washington Wind Chill.....Minus 89 Degrees

By Ben Thompson GLOBE CORRESPONDENT DECEMBER 28, 2017


While Bostonians bundle up and prepare for several more days of a historic run of below-freezing temperatures, weather observers atop Mount Washington in New Hampshire are dealing with record-breaking conditions best described as “painfully cold.”

The mountain’s 6,288-foot summit, known for its brutal and fast-changing winter weather, hit a low of minus 34 degrees early Thursday morning, Mount Washington Observatory meteorologist Tom Padham said. And with winds gusting at more than 110 miles per hour at times between 3 a.m. and 5 a.m. Thursday, he said wind chills on the summit reached minus 89.

It’s funny until somebody gets hurt, then it’s hilarious
