The week of August 30th began with a warm and pleasant Sunday with sunny, blue skies and temperatures in the high 70's. A threat of thunderstorms was predicted for late in the afternoon. The forecast for the rest of the week through Wednesday calls for sunny days with temperatures rising into the to mid 80's with increasing humidity. The temperature on Thursday drops into the low 80's with a threat of thunderstorms in the afternoon. Fridays temperature will be in the high 70's or low 80's with sunny skies. The temperature on Saturday will be much the same but with cloudy skies and the possibility of showers. Sunscreen and insect repellent 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!
