The week of July 26th should begin with periods of sun and a chance of thunderstorms on Sunday and Monday with temperatures both days in the high 70's or low 80's. By Tuesday the skies clear and the temperatures rise into the mid 80's with increasing humidity. Wednesday may be the warmest days with highs in the high 80's. Thursday should also be sunny with temperatures in the mid 80's. By Friday thunderstorms again may appear with highs in the low 80's. Saturday will be more comfortable with lower humidity and temperatures 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!
