The short answer: no one knows for sure.

Fog forms on a mountain when moist air rising up its windward face cools, resulting in water vapor condensing. Of course, being at the intersection of several major storm systems doesn't help, and explains why nearby Mount Washington is reputed to have the Worst Weather in the World!

But Mount Washington is only under cloud cover for approximately 55% for the year while Madahodo holds an astonishing record of 90%, and the discrepancy is still a mystery. Some scientists have hypothesized that Madahodo actually has "competing" windward faces, while others have suggested its unusual topography is perfectly designed to promote condensation.

But strangest of all is the fact that Madahodo's fogs are only a recent phenomenon. Recently uncovered geological data suggests the intense cloud cover only began appearing in the past few millenia, a baffling discovery for meteorologists and atmospheric scientists.
