Try camping at the end of the runway on Chicken Strip. No-see-um's don't exist there. Neither do the Horse Flies.

Sam's weather link is the best pinpoint forecast to start with. I also look closely at Trona/Ridgecrest, Big Pine, Bishop, Lone Pine, and Furnace Creek. Forecasts are just that and can have a huge variance.
It is springtime near a water source. Spring is the worst season for noseeums.

Noseeums - try this thread:
http://forum.salinepreservation.org/post/show_single_post?pid=1303005329&postcount=2&forum=167197 This weather link works for me. I add 5F in the Summer. I subtract 5F for the Winter. https://forecast.weather.gov/MapClick.php?site=vef&smap=1&textField1=36.817083333333&textField2=-117.76875#.VSWPqpPfBMI I also triangulate between Olancha, Furnace Creek and Bishop. Others suggested to average out Trona, Ridgecrest, and Big Pine

I have in my notes the following website for weather in Saline Valley.
But the actual weather got up to around 95 on most days.
Has anyone else had a similar experience with very inaccurate weather forecasts?
On a different topic, I wore shorts and the noseeums got to my legs such that it looks like my legs were peppered with bird shot. I have not had this experience before but I usually go when the weather is cooler.
Does anyone have any advice on dealing with noseeums?
