The weather maps and the tables are now showing the first signs of the Everest weather window. Early Wednesday morning, June 1, the forecast shows the jet wind completely gone from the Everest area, and a period of very low winds of less than 10m/s (22 mph) at the summit.

It looks like the low winds will also be accompanied by dry conditions, at least above 7000 meters.

Some teams are now looking at Monday and Tuesday as possible summit days. Although winds are not expected to be extreme, they are still forecast to be high due to the jet wind’s proximity to Everest during those days.
Forecasts can always be a little off, so moving to a higher position late weekend, is probably not a bad idea.
