Everest forecast - From SMHI and AdventureWeather.com
By ExplorersWeb
*******************************************************************
WNI Headline:
Drier weather looks to be in the forecast until the end of the week. A
few isolated showers are possible on Wednesday, otherwise it looks
fairly dry. Friday and Saturday look to have the best chances for heavy
snow. Winds below 7500m look to be mainly below 15 m/s through the
period and are forecasted to ease below 10 m/s by the end of the period.
Above 7500m will be fairly windy until the weekend with better
conditions on Sunday and Monday. The direction of the winds will be
mainly out of the NW - turning W'erly on Wednesday and more N/NW'erly on
Friday through the weekend.

Below 7500m - Winds look to be moderate with a short lived strong period
late Wednesday into Thursday. Otherwise look for the winds to be below
15 m/s and ease further to below 10 m/s on Friday and through the
weekend. Heavy snow is possible on Friday and Saturday. Currently it
looks like the best climbing conditions will be late this weekend into
the start of next week (lighter winds and isolated snow possible).

Above 7500m - Expect fairly windy conditions near Summits 1&2 until the
end of the week. Winds look to ease near the summit around the weekend
into early next week. Similar conditions apply to Summit 1 level to
7500m. Heavy snow is still a possibility on Friday and Saturday. Better
climbing conditions are currently in the forecast for late in the
weekend into early next week.

Safe Climbing!
