*******************************************************************
Everest forecast - From SMHI and AdventureWeather.com
By ExplorersWeb
*******************************************************************
Synopsis Everest 04013-0417 summit level

Jet:
A northwesterly jet over Afghanistan and Kashmir is moving in and will,
at times, affect the region. However, the main jet core is likely to be
situated over Pakistan and western Nepal.

Summit:
9000 m: Northwest 20-30 m/s, at times 35-45 m/s.

7500 m: West-northwest 20-25 m/s.

Weather:
A couple of minor lows are passing with main parts over Kashmir and
Tibet but may affect ME with more unsettled weather with precipitation
at times, due to a couple of passing troughs over Himalaya.


Synopsis Annapurna 0413-0417 summit level

In general the same synopsis applies for the Annupurna region. However,
the wind speed will probably be stronger most of the days due to jet
core west of region.
