PINKHAM NOTCH, N.H. (AP) - Fall may have just started, but it's wintry atop Mount Washington, with hurricane-force winds, snow and ice on the Northeast's highest peak.

But this is normal for the summit, which is 6,288 feet above sea level.

Brian Fitzgerald of the Mount Washington Observatory tells WMUR-TV so far, it's looking like an average winter is in store for the area.

The winter-like conditions are expected to lessen. Wednesday's forecast calls for temperatures staying above freezing with reduced wind speeds.
