The Mount Washington Observatory is a private, member-supported 501(c)(3) non-profit research and educational institution working to advance understanding of Earth’s weather and climate.

Our staff meteorologists take hourly weather observations 24/7/365 and immediately transmit this data to the National Weather Service for their short and long term weather modeling. Timely, accurate weather forecasting is critical to public safety, and the Mount Washington Observatory staff is always up to the job regardless of the fierceness of the environment.
