Tip #5 - Using clouds to predict weather patterns in the Himalayas

Being able to forecast mountain weather is a crucial skill when travelling or living in mountainous terrain. Checking online weather forecasts before leaving shelter and carrying a portable radio on longer treks is always a good idea. Nevertheless, it is crucial to pay attention to clouds and rapid changes in air pressure while on the trail. Such changes can alert one to changing weather conditions in the field. Clouds offer the most accessible reading of weather changes since they are formed by atmospheric changes.
