Everest forecast - From SMHI and AdventureWeather.com By ExplorersWeb
*******************************************************************
Synopsis Everest 0521-0525 summit level

Jet:
No jet in the ME-area this period. Further north there will be an almost
stationary westerly jet over Afghanistan-northwestern Pakistan-Kashmir.

Summit:
9000 m: Mainly around west 5-10 m/s, at times 10-15 m/s.

7500 m: West-southwest about 5 m/s, at times somewhat increasing.

Weather:
An intense low over southeastern Bangladesh moves away over Burma.
However, another low is forming over Tibet and causes moist conditions
and precipitation over ME Friday- Sunday. Then the low will weaken
bringing more dry conditions, there is still a risk of some showers.

Monsoon:
Southwest Monsoon has further advanced into parts of Andaman Sea,
southwest Bay of Bengal and some more parts of east Bay of Bengal and it
continues very slowly northwards.

Synopsis Annapurna 0521-0525

In general the same synopsis applies for the Annapurna region.
