The last few days there has been a very bad storm in the Broad Peak/K2 area.
It has affected many expeditions trying to get to the mountain. The good news
according to Pakistan Meteorological Dept, Senior Meteorologist is "that the
Storm has passed today, now the next 7/8 days are clear with good weather
conditions. These 7 or 8 days are ideal for movement/activity, don't miss this
good period. No jet is near the area, Upper Winds are almost NW'ly becoming
Westerly with reducing speed. Lower Winds, below 10/15,000 ft are variable
ranging 10-20 knots, mostly Northerly. Again the bottom line is" NEXT 7
DAYS ARE VERY GOOD."... Pakistan Meteorological Dept, Senior Meteorologist
With that said, the snow on the mountain means the avalanche
danger is high. These forecasts have been used in the past with excellent
results, however one should always be reminded these are forecasts and
forecasts can be wrong. Climbing mountains is a very high risk activity where
people die, many times due to the weather, SO be careful.
