I was up in the area on saturday. It was very active with the storms. Admittedly I did not climb Humphreys. However, I did climb Sitgreaves nearby. If the weather is active, you still have a reasonable chance if you get a very early start and can be at the top by 7 or 8 a.m., meaning a pre-dawn start. The thunderheads were starting to build by 9 a.m. or so. It's a calculated gamble.

I think the monsoon has been very busy this past week, moreso than usual. I did see the break in the pattern at least for the southern deserts on the various weather sites, so I echo Lionel above. However, even in normal monsoon conditions, you want to be down and back in the trees by mid-morning.

What's with the road closures? Does the FS get a kick out of closing gates, or is that just par for the course ???

They really are laying pipe and doing construction for the expansion and snow making operations up on the Peaks. I think they're working in the day, but have had some vandalism or are afraid of vandalism, and are therefore closing the area at night. A die hard could enter from the Inner Basin, but the paved access to 9300' is closed nightly.

I think I'm gonna go do my tourist stuff today(meteorite crater and the grand canyon) since I've gotten no sleep and dehydrated. So altitude is kicking my ass. ill go to the trailhead on way to the GC. Work on acclimatizing.
I'm gonna go back to my original plan and try on the 18th
