On Wednesday it will be partly sunny in the morning with a possible shower in the afternoon and highs reading into the upper 60's. On Thursday it will be mostly cloudy with highs in the lower 60's. Friday the temperature will barely crack 60 degrees with mostly cloudy skis and the chance of showers during the day. For Saturday expect slightly higher temperatures with mostly cloudy skies and a continued threat of shwoer. Sunblock and insect repellant are still good additions to your pack as some biting insects remain around until heavy frosts. Be sure you are dressed appropriately in clothing which will wick away moisture to keep you cool. Throw in a light windbreaker for the cool evenings and mornings. Keeping hydrated can sometimes be tricky but hydrating properly will allow you to hike longer and in greater comfort. Be sure to carry water with you as local water sources can be unreliable and may be contaminated. 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!
