Mount Washington is famous for dangerously erratic weather, with the summit weather observation registered temperatures of -43.6 °F (-42.0 °C) and winds of 87.5 mph on an average 110 days a year. The mountain holds the Northern and Western Hemisphere record for surface wind speed, with a speed of 231 mph. Mount Washington’s extraordinary weather extremes, unlike anywhere on Earth, is an ideal product testing site, with NASA and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) using it’s facilities.
