Happy New Year everyone! Thanks for following along with us through 2019. We’re excited to see what 2020 has in store for Mt. LeConte in the weeks and months to come.
The last day of the decade was a gorgeous one, once again starting cloudy but giving way to sensational sunny skies. It was a chilly mountaintop again, never breaking the freezing mark as our high was only 30°. We registered a low of 16° under a starry night sky. No new precipitation. Today looks like we hit the repeat once again, another enjoyable day to play in the woods.
For the second year in a row, our total liquid precip on the mountain broke the 100” mark and comfortably finished above the annual average. The warmest the lodge ever got was 77° and our coldest moment came in at -5°, both readings par for the course in a given year.
Have a great holiday!
