r/weather – Cannon Mountain, New Hampshire, USA

Interesting fact about USA wind records on this mountain!

On April 2, 1973, the second strongest surface wind gust ever recorded in the United States of America was measured by University of Massachusetts Amherst researchers on the summit. Although wind velocity maxima were measured at 199.5 mph (321 km/h), this reading represents the physical limit of the recording instrument, and thus the true value may have been quite higher. Only the record value measured on nearby Mount Washington in 1934 exceeds this value in terms of American wind extrema.

In this video, the weather mentioned the wind to be about 50 mph (80km/h) and I feel that’s consistent with my experience. It took a lot of concentration to get this video 😆
