Mount Rainier Recreational Forecast
National Weather Service Seattle WA
325 PM PST Sat Dec 16 2017

.SYNOPSIS...Rain and snow at Mount Rainer will increase tonight
and Sunday as a warm front reaches the area. The trailing cold
front will stall over the region on Monday. Windy conditions will
prevail. A strengthening low center will pass across the area on
Tuesday, and a strong cold front will bring wind and heavy
mountain snow. Lingering showers will continue Wednesday morning,
then an upper ridge will bring dry weather on Thursday and Friday.

&&

.IMPACTS...Stormy weather will create difficult backcountry
skiing and mountaineering conditions across much of the alpine
terrain of Mt. Rainier, including the Muir snowfield. Blizzard-
like conditions with strong winds and near zero visibility are
likely. A high level of skill and experience in alpine terrain,
including use of GPS, is recommended for navigation and camping in
these conditions.

&&

snow in the evening, then rain and snow likely after midnight.
