A beautiful day on the mountain, but a major thunderstorm hit in the middle of the day causing a bit of chaos.
While winds are expected to stay calm in the coming days, it is expected that it will be raining off and on throughout the day tomorrow. Later in the week winds will be picking up as the precipitation is expected to subsite on Friday.
Further lightning storms are forecasted in the general area so climbers should be very careful as they climb and seek shelter immediately in the event of lightning.
