.SYNOPSIS...An upper level trough crossing Western Washington will
maintain scattered showers tonight as well as strong winds over
the upper mountain. A cold front will stall over Vancouver Island
Friday and Friday night, which will produce a little light rain
and snow over the park mainly on Friday. Another warm wet frontal
system is expected to bring more rain and snow later Saturday 
into Sunday morning. Snow levels will rise back to 6000 feet. A 
large upper level trough will cross the area Sunday night and 
Monday with scattered showers. This active weather pattern should 
continue into mid next week.

&&

.IMPACTS...Strong winds in alpine regions on the mountain Thursday
night through Saturday, including the Muir snowfield, 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.

of 1 to 5 inches. Snow level near 4000 feet.
