The week of June 21st began with a hot and humid Sunday with plenty of sun and temperatures in the 70's until about 4:00 PM when heavy rains showers started. The forecast for Monday is for less humid weather with temperatures in the low1 80's and some sun and clouds. Tuesday may be a little warmer with sun in the morning and a threat of thunderstorms from 1:00 PM to evening. Wednesday and Thursday should be nice with lower temperatures in the 70's and plenty of sun. The temperature drops into the mid 60's on Friday and showers are again possible. Saturday will be partly sunny with a high in the low 70's. Sunscreen and insect repellant would be a good addition to your pack. Keep hydrated since you will be able to hiker longer and in greater comfort. Once you are thirsty, you are already dehydrated. 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!
