Summits peaking to 17-23 m/s around mid-week. Monsoon looks to move
further north into southwest/southern India.

Below 7500m - Winds below 7500m are expected to be around 5-12 m/s out
of the W/SW early in the period turning more NW'erly by the end of the

becoming more widespread and taper off by the afternoon. Chances
increase again on Tuesday night into Wednesday morning. Drier weather
should prevail through the rest of the forecasting period with a slight
chance of snow on Thursday.

Above 7500m - The winds today will be around 8-12 m/s easing to 5-8 m/s
