Well if this is accurate.. And it seems to change for the better every day..

No rain on Tuesday is good..As all is being set up..

Rain on Wednesday might be a nice welcome if the high will be 77 degrees

Thinking of bringing more tarps also. Can always use an extra tarp or 2..

Nathaniel, good idea to bring more extra shoes, reminded me to do the same!

My bud who was in Moab last weekend said they were wishing for rain, it's hot and dusty already. Upper Porcupine trail is even open and mostly snow-free.

I did not see any snow either while at BFE...

It did snow and rain during the Easter Jeep Safari.

Wet and cold.

The XYL is not liking the outlook.

I guess I need to make sure the camper has a fresh coat of Sno-Seal on all the vital areas, and that I have a full tank of propane and the batteries are all charged.

This is not a terrible forecast since it describes generally improving conditions with relatively small chances for soaking rains.

Grand Junction NOAA NWS Zone Map. Moab is in the southwest corner of NWS GJ Zone 27 and the western La Sals are Zone 28. BFE I believe lies mostly in zone 27 just north of zone 29.

Current forecast is a closed low pressure sitting just northwest of the four corners for pretty much the entire 3 days (Thu-Sat).

Sounds like "variable" weather is going to be about as good as we can hope for.
