Everest Weather

The tropical storm will continue to usher in the moisture and shower threats for the Everest area. Long term forecasts indicate an approaching upper level jet starting around mid week next week. Confidence in the timing is low, but there is a possibility winds could increase mid to late next week. Models have different solutions for next week.
