<< the weather report you get on the radio has
 nothing whatever to do with the weather on the Trail.  Weather reports
 are ALWAYS for populated areas - and for the altitude at those areas.  >>
Weather forcasts, while interesting in a general sense, are seldom accurate or
specific. Knowledge of the clouds, winds and sky will tell you more about the
next hour's weather than the most capable radio report. Prepare for the most
severe weather, and rejoice in anything else.
