The nearest weather station for both precipitation and temperature measurements is HETCH HET which is approximately 16 miles away and has an elevation of 3,870 feet (6,652 feet lower than West Peak). Because the nearest station and this geographic feature may have differences in elevation and topography, the historic weather at the two separate locations may be different as well.
