Last year I had about 4 weeks of unsettled weather constantly rolling into the Tetons and Wind River areas, starting in late Aug. In looking back through the forecast discussions, they attributed that to (1) a strong El Nino and (2) an omega blocking pattern set up over the northern plains.

Long range forecasts are just useful for potential trends/averages, but this year looks more encouraging. Currently they're expecting La Nina to build throughout the summer. Should lead to much better backpacking weather come next Aug/Sept. I'm introducing a couple of groups to the Winds so hoping there's enough decent weather to have a good first impression (unlike the 2020 wind storm, which was the last time I tried this)

Anyway, could be nonsense, but I'm going to remain optimistic, at least for now!
