Last night, June 3, the summit of Mt. Washington in New Hampshire looked more like a movie set during an ice age. Though the unofficial start to summer, Memorial Day, has come and gone, the summit of the tallest mountain in the east is still getting some winter weather.

The Mount Washington Observatory, playfully calling this time "June-uary", has reported almost an inch of fresh snow at the summit. This morning they also took to social media posting a photo that looked more like a morning on an ice planet than in New England in the late spring/early summer.

The observatory also recorded a little more than late season snow last night. During the night they recorded a wind gust of 102mph, which they showed off by posting a graph displaying the weather at almost 8:40 PM. You can also see that the temperature at the summit was 26.3°.

A night like that definitely helps Mount Washington secure its reputation for having some of the baddest weather in the United States. A special thanks to those who are up there during these times that were able to provide these beautiful pictures and all of this data.
