Hello fellow premotes (and curious clickers from the world wide web)! Here's a little something-something to help us plan, purchase, and pack efficiently for the grand adventure!
Let's jump right into the nitty gritty, shall we?
Good news everybody! 2018 is going to be a very easy year to pack for. Here's the general gist (my apologies to all you Celsius Citizens out there):
Warmest Months: January, February, and July, with highs in the 80s and averages in the mid 70s
Coldest Month: May, with lows down to 49° and averages in the upper 50s
Full Range: Mid 80s to Low 50s
Yearly Average: 68°
Not too shabby eh? At least we'll have one month for hot soup and scarves. Here's a chart with all the values if you care for specifics:
Continuing the amateur weather report, let's cover chance of showers. As a frame of reference, Seattle gets over 5 inches of rainfall during its wettest month.
Dry Months: March, July, November and December. Next to nothing!
Wettest Months: April & June. A little Goretex would go a long way.
Data sourced from timeanddate.com - manually (a peer review would be hella-dope). If anybody wants to save the worksheet to their own Google Drive or download it, be my guest! Includes all the charts/graphs here and links for detailed weather in each individual city.
And lastly, keep an eye out in Slack and our Facebook group over the coming weeks for additional summaries on languages, power outlet requirements, climbing gym locations, and more! Feel free to suggest ideas if there's something you're curious about.
I'm always up for getting freaky fresh with data.
