Although we’re waking up to vivid horizons and calm conditions atop the mountain, we know we’re in for some turbulent weather as the day rolls on. Beginning late this morning, clouds should thicken over the Smokies and start producing isolated storms that may persist well into the evening. So unless you begin your trek early today, it’s possible you could face some wet conditions on the hike up. Some storms today could produce heavy rainfall at times combined with gusty winds. Thankfully this atmospheric event will be a one-hit wonder, as tomorrow calls for superbly sunny skies.
