Everest forecast - From WNI and AdventureWeather.com
By ExplorersWeb
*******************************************************************
WNI Headline:
Temporary ridging is in place over the ME area but that will all change
late this weekend as a trough will swing through the mountain. Winds
will tend to turn more westerly by Friday and start to increase this
weekend. Expect mainly dry weather today with an occasional snow shower
around 7000m. Satellite imagery indicates widespread cloud cover over
Nepal and Northern India. For the long term, model solution points
towards dry conditions starting the middle of next week.

Below 7500m - Winds today look to be light or under 10 m/s and will ease
a bit more to under or at 5 m/s tomorrow to early Saturday. Winds will
start to pick up on Saturday (5-15 m/s) and increase further to 10-20
m/s by Monday as the westerly jet comes closer and over the ME area.
Look for a chance for snow showers on Saturday through Monday and
possibly into Tuesday.

Above 7500m - Winds today through Saturday will be the lightest
throughout this forecasting period. The winds to day will be 10-20 m/s
and ease a bit later today into Friday. On Saturday the winds will be
around 5-15 m/s. By Sunday the jet will be near the ME area and will
increase the winds to 15-22 m/s. On Monday look for even more of an
increase in winds 20-27 m/s (25-32 m/s at Summit2) and the winds should
hold steady at this magnitude for through early/mid next week. There
does look to be plenty of moisture on Sunday for a chance for heavy
snow. The next chance for heavy snow will be late on Monday into
Tuesday.

Safe Climbing!
