Snow on Mt. Washington, NH

It was "about 35 degrees and there was a thick and soupy fog. Visibility was about 100 feet and ice was starting to form on the windows. Then I saw big, fat, floppy flakes hitting the windows," said meteorologist Stacey Kawecki.
"Welcome to July everyone!" wrote summit intern Kristin Raisanen. "When
I think of July, I think of warm temperatures and days spent at the
beach. Mother Nature had her own idea of July today when she welcomed us
into this lovely summer month with snow. Yes, snow!!"
"Today, with a high in the mid 30's and showers in the forecast, snow was definitely possible, but the idea of snow in July never crossed my mind. So when Stacey yelled 'It's snowing!', I knew I needed to see it to believe it. To my delight, when I looked out the office window snowflakes were splattering on the window and whipping by in the wind.
"The snow showers continued on and off for a few hours, drawing amazement from the staff, this weeks volunteers and all the visitors. Though there wasn't enough snow to completely coat the deck, there was enough to leave just a trace in the corners of the observation deck and give me a new idea of what July could be.
