Yosemite weather in late June???

Hey all you YNP specialists...I can't find almanac weather on Yosemite...can you please advise me of "typical" weather in Yosemite Valley and the upper meadows during the last week of June?

Pack to stay warm, cool, rainy?

Thank you.

Yosemite's website (www.nps.gov/yose) has that information. There is a page that lists weather month by month. If you can't find it, just send them an email asking for that information.

Upper meadows could easily get down into the 30s at night. Prepare for any of the things you were thinking about preparing for, but don't forget sunscreen and insect repellent.

Watch for bear activity reports in both places if you'll be camping.

The valley floor is at 4,000' elevation.

Enjoy!

It will probably be quite warm during the day so that you could wear shorts. If you start out early in the morning before it starts to warm you will probably find that you end up tying your sweathsirt around your waist at some point during the day. Then it will be chillier at night in the upper elevations. It could stay quite warm in the valley though. Once it gets warm in the summer, the valley will store the heat and it doesn't always cool off during the night.

Humidity is one thing we dont have to worry about here in CA. While you can get an occasional summer thunderstorm in the Sierras, even then the humidity never feels like it does on the East Coast.

Stanc,

I don't see where anyone has mentioned that it could reach 100 degrees during the day in the valley. While not humid, 100 is still hot and certainly not mild!

The high country will be "milder" by 10-15 degrees figuring 2-3 degrees for every 1000 feet of elevation increase.

Have a great visit!
