Tour on McGee to evaluate the distribution and sensitivity of the Persistent Slab problem.
After a day devoted to pinning down the PWL in the McGee area significant uncertainty remains as to how likely human triggering is, but it is possible.
Sunny with light winds below treeline. Calm winds on the ridge. 5 F in the parking lot (6900′) at 9 AM – brrr. 26 F on the ridge (10500′) at 2 PM. Beautiful day with incredible visibility.
