National Big Wind Day - 2022-04-12
What is National Big Wind Day?
On April 12th, the world recognizes National Big Wind Day. This holiday commemorates a major milestone in meteorology: the highest-recorded wind gust. In 1934, the Mount Washington Observatory recorded a 231 MPH gust. Mount Washington is the highest point in the entire Northeast at 6,288 feet. It is also the most prominent mountain in the area. Back in 1934, people thought the big wind was the strongest ever recorded on Earth. But then a typhoon topped it. The wind gusts were so strong that they blew off the top of Mount Washington. It seemed like the record would never be broken. But then in 1984, some scientists returned to Mount Washington to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the big wind. And then in 1996, the record-breaking wind was toppled by a typhoon.
