Much colder on the mountain yesterday, more like the winter we know and love about Mt. LeConte. Wednesday’s high barely scraped 20°, and our low point tapped single digits again at 9°. Currently sitting at 18° under impeccably clear skies. No new precipitation but still looking at an I nch of snow on the ground.
US 441 is still closed as of this morning, the cold temps and shady areas of the roadway are likely giving the crews fits. Hopefully another full day of sun helps their cause. We’ll just continue to enjoy a cold and quiet mountaintop in the meantime.
