    3/15 Moab Conditions
    The forcast looks good for Mon-Wed. How high up Porcupine, LPS, UPS, Hazard County is the mud line?
    Are all the lower areas (Amasa, Sovereign, Slickrock) dry?

    (Yes, I saw the week-old thread on conditions for 3/16 but the last post was 4 days old and it was more general questions like camping.)

    We rode LPS and Porcupine 2 days ago (Saturday). Perfect weather right now. There was snow at the beginning of lps and the notch area was snow covered.

    Just got back. Conditions were beyond dry. Rode all the stuff in the Sovereign area and it was as dusty as I've ever seen.

    Awe man, that's not what I want to hear! Looks like a slight chance of rain early next week, maybe it can dampin things down. I need temps to stay cool, and trail conditions to be good into mid April! :D

    Weather changes every day but this was the hottest March Moab trip I've ever done. In the middle of the night I could walk around camp in flip flops and I took a between-ride siesta between 11:30 am and 1:30 pm, rather than riding in the blazing sun.
