  Bad weather/Good Weather on Broad Peak/K2, be careful


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.
