A good approximation of the Springs campground weather is Tahoma, CA: https://www.wunderground.com/weather/us/ca/tahoma/96142 Daytime temps should be about the same but nighttime temps will likely be ~5 degrees (Fahrenheit) lower.

I've been watching tahoma weather here and there it's been showing thunderstorms on some days granted it changes often. I don't think I've been to a mcr with rain but should I put the top back on the runner?? Lol

Well, despite my best efforts it looks like I'm not going to make it.

BigMike-
Who do I need to notify that me and my co-pilot won't be there?

I was just there last wknd. The trail is pretty beat up this year from what the normal goers said. Pretty dry, but lots of water in the lakes and springs. It seems like the dirt is getting beat out of the trail and making the rocks bigger. Made my 40's feel small lol. And it was HOT! I haven't checked the forecast for this wknd, but I was in shorts and no shirt all wknd. Really didn't need a tint.
