Yesterday saw intermittent splashes of sunshine all around the mountain, but it doesn’t appear as though we’ll be getting a streak of fair-weather days just yet. The summit is up close and personal with the clouds yet again today, and scattered showers have already said hello this morning. There is a chance for storms throughout the afternoon, so come dressed head-to-toe for sloppy conditions. Rivers have all dropped below flood stages in our vicinity, but the persistent bouts of rainfall are keeping them running higher than average. Over the last 48 hours the mountain has collected around 5.5” of liquid precip, enough force to move rocks and uproot trees along our various approach trails. Temps are in the mid 50s and might climb into the lower 60s this afternoon. Winds will be light but present enough to add a chill to the air with all these clouds and mists. Friday looks like it will bring a more pleasant first half of the day, with storms possible during the afternoon.
Have a great day.
