The week of March 29th began with generally sunny skies and temperatures in the mid to high 30's on Sunday. The forecast for Monday calls for highs in the low 40's with a few snow and rain showers throughout the day. On Tues day the temperature drops a few degrees with the threat of showers in the afternoon. Wednesday's forecast is for temperatures in the low 40's with plenty of sun and little or no wind. The temperature rises into the 50's on Thursday with more clouds than sun. Showers will be around throughput the day on Friday but the temperature will remain in the 50's. On Saturday and Sunday there will be more sun but the temperatures drop back into the low 40's. There is still enough snow to make snowshoes a good idea for hiking on the peaks. Trails that are packed hard in the morning may soften with in increasing temperatures throughout the day. Crampons or spikes may be required in spots as the trail thaw and then refreeze. When parking to hike, be sure you are out of the way of snow plows and do not park in places where they must turn around. Remember, the weather forecast is only a prediction and always contains percentages. Be prepared and have a plan for the most likely and least likely forecast! Are you prepared to stay out overnight on a trail? Conditions in the morning can change drastically by afternoon. Conditions at the trailhead do not always reflect the conditions on the peaks! Variable trail and weather conditions are a hallmark of these mountains. BE CAREFUL AND BE PREPARED!
