Mount Washington, the highest peak in the Northeast, recorded its first snowfall of the season this past weekend.
The Mount Washington Observatory tweeted over the weekend the region's tallest peak recorded its first measurable snow.
The first measurable snow fell this morning with on and off snow showers continuing into the early evening hours. We have been outside enjoying the first real taste of winter up here! pic.twitter.com/zLGstp9hZ2

It was only an inch of snow, but it was enough to provide a brilliant contrast to the fall colors on surrounding peaks.
Observatory officials said in a blog post Monday they love all kinds of weather, "but wintry conditions hold a special place in our hearts."
