The National Institute of Meteorology and Hydrology forecasts a gradual decrease in cloud cover throughout Saturday, with the likelihood of partly sunny conditions in the afternoon. Weather patterns indicate moderate east-northeasterly winds in the morning, shifting to southerly winds by afternoon. The temperature forecast predicts highs of 3°C at 1,200 meters and minus 3°C at 2,000 meters.
Mountain hiking enthusiasts are strongly advised to heed these warnings and exercise caution while planning outdoor activities, prioritizing safety amid the challenging weather conditions.
