131 mph Winds on Mt Washington!

posted by Greg Kretschmar - 

Check out this short video from last night! We actually filmed this right before we hit 131 mph. During the video, as soon as the phone was exposed to the cold, freezing rain and sleet the battery shut off. Nonetheless, it is a taste of what the summit was bombarded with yesterday! 3.04" of liquid precipitation fell, which was composed of freezing rain and an impressive 6.7" of sleet! #nhwx #mwobs #whitemountains #presidentialrange #freezingrain #sleet
