Daytime on-Playa is usually single digit RH on hot days.
But usually only the temps plus of 95 F. Less than that they usually manage to sit in the low teens. Surprisingly, some days only get down to ~16-24. Lowest I've seen was 8.
Doesn't matter once I breath in some dust, then I'm convinced its drier.

There's been updates with which ones do or don't last, and updated current requirements. Some of the ones initially thought to be good turned out to be bad. I check each time I buy one.
Video games are giving kids unrealistic expectations on how many swords they can carry.
... but don't harm the red dragon that frequents the area from time to time. He and I have an agreement.

Nice and cool but variably near white out conditions at will call.

Have mask and goggles at hand before you hit gate road. Don’t leave your vehicle w o your mask and goggles even if it is calm when you step out.

Ground is pebbly, crushed in some places as described. Not seen this before.

NWS GFS MOS forecast has some good winds in NV Saturday evening/night 24th - 25th.

Perfect for Gate!

Be prepared.
