      BTW, at noon today at donner summit the temp was 58 degrees!

      a few potential dry area of the JMT zone that come to my mind are:
      * little Yosemite valley to Cathedral lake
      * humphrey basin
      * south of mather pass
      * reds to duck creek
      * mono basin
      * forester pass south to wallace creek
