Yesterdays high of 77 degrees is making me think that this might be the record breaking year Mt. LeConte hits 80 degrees. Yesterdays forcast for Knoxville was in the high 90s. If Knoxville hits around the 108 mark, I don't see how we don't hit the 80s. I will keep you all updated. I will say, for the heatwave we are having, we have had a couple of amazingly clear days up top. The visibiltiy is pretty impressive.
I remind you, if you are hiking anywhere in the park this weekend, please, please, please carry a lot of water and electrolytes. DRINK them. Don't just carry them. Carry snacks with salt to replace the sodium you are loosing while sweating. These tips are extremely important when hiking in weather like this. Once you have made it to the top, you will be rewarded with nice cool temperatures.
