Now’s the time to start speculating on weather conditions next weekend. If you go to Weather.gov’s Moab Weather page, they are starting to talk about next weekend. It’s a good thing we’re not riding this weekend!
Right now they’re predicting good weather, if on the cool side, for Friday. You may not need as much water for the rides, but make sure you bring a jacket for when we stop to take breaks!
For those who want second opinions, this forecast doesn’t sound as good…
It seems likely, given that there are rain showers and low temperatures this week in Moab, that we’ll have some snow on the groun on Porcupine Rim or anywhere else with altitude above Moab. Hopefully not enough to cause a problem; maybe just enough to absorb a fall or two.
I hear ya. It’s in the 30s here with snow and ice as the overall riding terrain. Where there is ground it’s thawing and muddy. So riding in the 60 degree weather and relatively dry ground will be sweet.
When I have been to Moab, the storms come sweeping in and do what they are going to do and leave fairly quickly. Bring a jacket.
