Weather forecast for climbing

The forecast isn’t great, but even if it’s raining in the morning, we might still get breaks of dry weather in the afternoon. Metcheck forecast currently states:

19:00hrs: 14C, v light precipitation (0.1mm), 54% cloud coverage, southerly wind 7-20mph, UV zero, possible breaks in cloud allowing sunny spells.

Reading between the lines, I’d say that the rain will be very light and will blow over quickly, allowing the rock to dry out. Pack a cag and warm clothing.. we’ll still get out climbing.

See you there.
