Real Time Ground Reporting Stations
Planning our gear selection for our hike South from Lake Tahoe we have referred to a reasonable selection of real-time ground reporting stations that inform about temp, wind, rain, snow, and humidity.
This real-time data gives us both current and historical knowledge of the range of temperatures we can expect to experience at various points down the trail.
This information establishes our gear selection range.
