Mount Rainier Recreational Forecast
National Weather Service Seattle WA
142 PM PDT Tue Jun 18 2019

.SYNOPSIS...An upper level trough will brush the area Wednesday and
Thursday, bringing chances for rain and high elevation snow to
the region along with slightly below normal temperatures. Winds
will also increase tonight, especially above 10,000 feet. Drier
and warmer conditions are expected Friday and Saturday in the wake
of this system. Unsettled weather will return Sunday into early
next week as another system sets up over the area.

terrain, including use of GPS, is recommended for navigation and
camping in these conditions.
