NH 48 TRIP REPORTS AND WEATHER LINKS
This page should give you all the most useful links for checking the weather forecasts and trip reports for the AMC New Hampshire 4,000 footers (NH48).
Though there are many different weather services, we have found the National Weather Service to provide the most complete and accurate mountain weather forecasts. Things change quickly in the White Mountains so if you are looking more than a couple days in advance, be sure to check back to make sure conditions are still good. In our experience, the forecast 24 hours prior to hiking is usually pretty accurate! Be sure to check out the hourly forecast graphs, they’ve got tons of info for hikers including wind speed, direction, cloud cover, and precipitation potential. If some of the terms are confusing, here are the definitions from the National Weather Service.
For spring hiking, check the streamflow conditions for New Hampshire, published by the USGS. The Northeast Snow Depth Page should be useful for winter hikers. You could also look at the Higher Summits Forecast from Mt. Washington Observatory. It gives a general idea of conditions across the region, but is not as specific as the National Weather Service forecasts for each peak linked below.
Below, you will find links to TrailsNH.com for recent trip reports and the National Weather Service 7 day forecast and hourly forecast for all NH 48 4,000 footers. Some are grouped when peaks are so close that the same forecast applies to both.
