National Big Wind Day

April 12 marks Big Wind Day in the United States, commemorating the recording of the highest natural wind gust ever measured on Earth's surface. On the afternoon of April 12, 1934, Mount Washington Observatory registered winds reaching an astonishing 231 miles per hour. Mount Washington stands as the highest peak in the Northeastern United States, reaching 6,288 feet and earning the distinction of being the most prominent mountain east of the Mississippi River. While it may be challenging to predict if the day will experience winds as robust as in 1934, one can anticipate windy conditions on Mount Washington.
