Aside from having to duck and dodge a few patchy clouds here in the upper elevations, it’s an otherwise beautiful morning. The first half of the day should be great for hiking, with potential for turbulent weather later this afternoon. It’s going to be a hot day down below regardless, so it should feel fabulous this high up. We’re rolling out of bed to temps in the mid 50s and expect to reach the upper 60s by midday. Little air movement over the peaks today. This weekend is shaping up to be a soaker, with higher chances of thunderstorms throughout. Remember to pack the appropriate gear to keep yourself and your belongings dry should you get caught out in a squall hiking up or down. Boots with good traction in wet and muddy conditions will also serve you well.
