    Best weather location for WRIAD?

    I have been watching Moab weather for this Sat but it occurred to me that the Canyonlands Natl Prk may be better/more accurate.

    10 degree diff for Sat. Should I go with the Canyonlands prediction?

    Too late for the OP, but the Moab airport is a suitable spot for a WR weather prediction
    But keep in mind that the White Rim Loop encompasses an elevation variation of about 2000 feet from ~4K at river level to ~6K on much of the Island in the Sky Plateau. Murphy Hogback, in the middle, reaches to 5K+. Bottom line, most of the riding is at the lower elevations, but a 10 degree temperature variation is likely.

    But the caption of the Island In the Sky webcam located at the Ranger Station, also gives current weather info along with the nice visual.
