IMPORTANT EXTRA INFORMATION COMING SHORTLEY


WNI Headline:
Satellite imagery shows plenty of clouds around the Mountain today. Look
for a good chance for snow through most of the period for areas below
6000m with a few showers above 6000m at times. The developing tropical
near 18.4N 89.8E has been upgraded to "good" for the development of a
tropical cyclone within the next 24 hours. The low will usher in more
moisture to the ME area throughout this period increasing the chance and
frequency of showers. Overall winds should be as previously forecasted.
The direction of the winds will be mainly out of the W/NW and become a
bit more variable before turning more N/NW by the end of the week.

Below 7500m - The winds will pick up slightly when showers are present,
however, generally look for the following conditions. Today winds should
hang around 5-10 m/s before easing on Wednesday to around 5 m/s in the
morning then increasing again to 10 m/s by the afternoon. On Thursday
the winds look to be around 5-10 m/s and possibly increasing on Friday
to 10-15 m/s. In general look for winds to be around 10 m/s or less
during this time period. Showers look frequent throughout this time
period below 6000m with heavier and more widespread showers possible
later in the week.

7500m to 8500m - Winds today will be around 5 m/s and increase slight
tomorrow to 10-15 m/s before easing by the afternoon to around 5 m/s.
Forecast call for the winds to stay in the 5-10 m/s range throughout
this period with a possible slight increase on Friday. Winds look to
briefly be less than 5 m/s at times. Showers are a possibility today
(mainly lower elevations) and increase in chances around the middle/end
of this week.

Summit 1, Summit 2 - Today's winds look to be around 7-13 m/s and will
increase tomorrow morning to around 15 m/s before easing to 5-12 m/s
throughout the rest of the period. Some time periods will have winds
less than 5 m/s.

Safe Climbing!
