@aaron-meek I’ve mentally prepared myself to do Santiago Peak tomorrow 1 March, NWS prediction for that area are cold temps 40º at 7 am dropping to 33º by 6 pm (wind chills will feel like 30-22 respectively), the chance of snow showers throughout the day with 0.3 inches max. I’m okay with the snow, I’d rather hike in that than rain. I’m just gearing up to be warm. It’s a long hike and a 2.5 hr drive from my house, so I’m targeting to start on the trail no later than 7 am, earlier if I can drag myself out of bed 🙂
Weather for Sitton Peak should be more hospitable, only 30% chance of rain showers, expect it to be windy at the top (it was when I did it a couple of weeks ago) Have a good hike, the last bit of Sitton is a steep scramble, kind of fun but definitely bring your poles for that.
