Weather Forecast 10.17.06

Grab your bear can or camp chair, kick your feet up and chew the fat about anything Sierra Nevada related that doesn't quite fit in any of the other forums. Within reason, (and the HST rules and guidelines) this is also an anything goes forum. Tell stories, discuss wilderness issues, music, or whatever else the High Sierra stirs up in your mind.

Snowy:

Right now I am a little uncertain about the weather for Sunday, as a cut-off low may undercut the ridge that will begin to form on Thursday; I am betting this won't happen, so for the moment, it looks like dry conditions.

hope so! We'll be in the White Mtns and not the Sierra. I know there will be snow, but hopefully no wind.

All I want is good weather! [-o<
