It's another beautiful, clear wintry morning up top. The high yesterday reached 45 degrees. The overnight low was 31 degrees. It was 36 degrees and clear at 7am observation. The mountain received no new precipitation and the abundant sun melted 2 inches, leaving us with about 2 inches of snow up top. The trails are sure to be slick, so traction devices would be recommended if you inted to summit. Get out and enjoy another sunny Smokies day!
