Weather forecast good on Wednesday for K2

The best day for climbing in the coming days appears to be on Wednesday. Mountain forecast shows that it will be a clear day with winds decreasing. No rain or snow is expected. From Thursday to Saturday, though, there will be rain and snow and winds increasingly a little. In particular on Thursday and Friday nights there will be snowfalls of 12 and 16cm respectively.

Both Gerlinde Kaltenbrunner and Maxut Zumayev have said that they are going to advanced base and are hoping to start climbing K2 for the first time. Maxut said there is hope of setting up camp 1, and maybe going to camp 2 if conditions allow in the coming days.
