Average Summit winds  40 to 60 mph (64 to 96  km/hr) west to northwest.

Precipitation in water equivalent not inches of snow (at 20,000 feet (6060 meters)   0  to 0.50 inches (12.5 mm). 15% chance of getting up to 0.50 inches (12.5 mm). Also 70% chance of getting less than 0.10 inches (2.5 mm) . Not sure why some models are showing up to .50 inches (12.5 mm) given northwest flow.

A basic conversion is 0.10 inches (12.5 mm) in water equivalent is  equal to about  1 inch of snow<

Summit Clouds:  Not many perhaps just a few early.
