Appalachian Mountains

Mount Washington in Appalachians is the place with the world's worst weather! It is the combination of extreme cold, wet, high winds, icing conditions and low visibility consistently found atop Mount Washington, which earn it the title "Home of the World's Worst Weather". Despite its relatively low elevation (6288 feet/ 1916 m) Mount Washington is located at the confluence of three major storm tracks, and being the highest point in New England, it generally takes the brunt of passing storms. The steepness of the slopes, combined with the north/south orientation of the range, cause the winds to accelerate dramatically as they rise up from the valleys. Mt. Washington Observatory one of the most unique weather station on earth is located here.
