    Default Weather in August

    I plan on starting on August 5th and am curious as to what the weather is going to be like when I get started. Should I expect any rain while I am oth there and how cold will it get at night. I have to decide between my 15 deg bag and 30 deg bag.

    Any help is greatly appreciated!

    Weather should generally be beautiful, but always plan for rain as it can come at any time. 30 degree bag should be fine unless you are a really cold sleeper. Everyone that I talked to using quality 30 degree bags said that they were comfortable the entire time. Bring a good base layer (you should anyway) in case temps get lower than expected.
