By ExplorersWeb
*******************************************************************
Synopsis Everest 0507-0511 summit level

Jet:
A westerly jet stays mainly north of ME but will later on, from Sunday,
move slowly southwards.

9000 m: North West 20-25 m/s, slowly turning west during the period and
increasing from Sunday. Next week 30-35 m/s.

7500 m: Northwest 5-10 m/s. Turning to west and from Sunday increasing
to 20 m/s.

Weather:
A ridge will pass with mainly dry weather over ME during the first days
but later on a low will move from Kazakhstan to China and further

The monsoon stays rather still mainly south of Sri Lanka over Indian
Ocean.

In general the same synopsis applies for the Annapurna region.
