It’s a pleasant start to this Thursday. A great view for guests to wake up to and for slurping down pancakes before hitting the trail. There are varying levels of cloud layers in the atmosphere at the moment, none of which should pose any threat weather-wise until later this afternoon. The chances for brief but strong downpours are most likely to occur after lunch time the subside around supper. The forecast is looking fairly copy and paste the next several days, so best to prepare for a little rain if hiking the mountain is on your agenda. Temps are not expected to be overbearing, even down in the Tennessee Valley, which is a nice break. Conditions at the lodge are in the low 50s and might tap the low 60s later today.
