Look: It Is Snowing in May On The East Coast
Yes, there was fresh snow on May 25, 2023... on the EAST COAST! Winter is not giving up, even though it all but gave up east of the Mississippi this year. An inch of snow fell this week on the top of Mount Washington in New Hampshire. Don't believe us? Check out the photo posted by the Mount Washington Observatory below!

"Winter-like conditions have returned to the summit this morning with just over an inch of new snowfall and temperatures hovering in the 20s with stiff northerly winds adding a nip to the air. The wintry weather continues today but improving conditions are expected in the days ahead." - MWOB
Mount Washington is situated in the Presidential Range of the White Mountains in Coos County, New Hampshire. It is the highest peak in the northeastern United States, with an elevation of 6,288 feet (1,917 meters). Notorious for its unpredictable and severe weather conditions, it holds the record for the highest wind speed ever recorded on the surface of the Earth outside of a tropical cyclone, with gusts exceeding 230 miles per hour (370 kilometers per hour). The mountain also experiences rapidly changing weather patterns, including strong winds, fog, extreme cold temperatures... and even snow sometimes during the summer months.
So nothing really out of the ordinary and it is not time to bust out the boards in NH, but still pretty cool to see!
