A wave of clouds and mist is bubbling up from the south this morning, making conditions wet and gray to begin the day. We are yet to see any heavy downpours, but there’s still enough precip to create slick surfaces and keep the air feeling cool up top. It would be a surprise if temps escaped the 50s today, especially since the forecast for down below seem so unseasonably cool. Although it’s doubtful many folks will complain about that. Today holds the strongest chance for continual rain of the entire weekend, with the possibilities decreasing each subsequent day. We’ll see how that prediction shakes out, but like always this time of year, best to anticipate a little afternoon moistening from the skies.
Shout out to our friends with the NPS trail crews for coming up Alum Cave this week to dig out some trenches for water runoff, and also replacing the sign at the bluffs. That trail receives a lot of visitors daily, so it’s good for the vast number of first timers to know just where they stand in relation to the summit.
