Temperatures at Glacier Point, LYV and Half Dome this week
Save

We hike in this Thursday for a couple of nights at LYV, and some additional nights in the valley. I'm checking temperatures and they seem to be some variations, depending on what site is used or if YNP or Yosemite Valley is entered.

Where can I get accurate temperatures for the valley and up at Little Yosemite Valley campground and up at glacier point for later this week?

Thanks

Hi

This is the weather map that the NPS offers and that we share on this forum often.

https://www.nps.gov/yose/planyourvisit/weathermap.htm

.

>>they seem to be some variations<<

Altitude, orientation, river drainage, etc. ... all these are important in the specific weather that you'll experience. A general website that is trying to offer a single weather forecast for Yosemite NP will be inaccurate.

As a very general rule of thumb you can take the temperature for Yosemite Valley and subtract 3-5F degrees per 1,000 ft of additional elevation gain. But it doesn't always work that way, and other conditions such as precipitation, wind, moisture, sun/shade, and lightning can be vastly different. Follow the old adage to prepare for the worst and hope for the best.
