Weather forecast excellent for K2 in early August

The best climbing conditions of the summer are coming up on K2 according to the website Mountain Forecast.The key to the weather is that there is forecast to be light winds from the 2nd August to at least 5th August.

With such a good forecast the expeditions will be hoping to at least to get to camp 4 at about 8000m. No one has been that high this year. The North Ridge Expedition will likely go back down and rest and make an assault on the summit at a later date. However, on the Pakistan side of the mountain it may depend on what progress they make.
