Mt Rainier Recreational Forecast Mount Rainier Recreational Forecast
National Weather Service Seattle WA
322 PM PST Thu Jan 20 2022

.SYNOPSIS...A convergence zone may allow for lingering showers into 
tonight for locations east of Puget Sound, otherwise, upper level 
ridging will bring dry conditions to the area for much of the 
forecast period. This prolonged high pressure and fairly light winds 
will result in fog from time to time in the lowlands.

&&

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

&&

.THURSDAY NIGHT...Very windy. Mostly cloudy until early morning
then becoming partly cloudy. A chance of showers in the evening,
then a slight chance of showers after midnight. Snow level near
3000 feet. 
.FRIDAY...Mostly sunny. Freezing level near 4500 feet increasing
to 7500 feet in the afternoon. 
.FRIDAY NIGHT...Mostly clear. Freezing level near 8500 feet. 
.SATURDAY...Sunny. Freezing level near 10000 feet.
