Mount Rainier Recreational Forecast
National Weather Service Seattle WA
258 PM PST Wed Jan 23 2019

.SYNOPSIS...No significant weather systems will affect the area
through the end of the week--but strong winds will still affect
the highest elevations of the mountains at times. An upper trough
will move through western Canada on Sunday. Strong surface high
pressure will build over British Columbia and Alberta Monday.

&&

.IMPACTS...Strong winds near the summit will make it difficult to
move safely and could produce local whiteout conditions. A high
level of skill and experience in alpine terrain, including use of
GPS, is recommended for navigation and camping in these
conditions.

&&

.WEDNESDAY NIGHT...Mostly cloudy. A chance of showers in the
evening, then a slight chance of showers after midnight. Snow
level near 4500 feet.
.THURSDAY...Partly sunny. Freezing level near 6500 feet.
.THURSDAY NIGHT...Mostly cloudy. A slight chance of showers after
midnight. Snow level near 4000 feet. Freezing level near
6500 feet in the evening.
.FRIDAY...Mostly cloudy. Freezing level near 4500 feet.
