It’s hard to top a Tennessee sunset or sunrise, and we have sure had a great run of them this past week. Looks like we’re due for at least a couple more with this stretch of stellar weather. Rolling out of bed with temps in the mid 40s again this morning, but it’s going to get a good bit warmer up top this afternoon. A high of around 70° is possible today, so expect it to be that much warmer down below at the various trailheads. Winds are also expected to ramp up this evening with gusts above 20mph. For the weekend warriors who have Mt. LeConte in their sights, it’s going to be a mixed bag of treats, as the forecast is calling for afternoon showers and thunderstorms in the coming days. So have the rain gear handy even if the beginning of your hike looks like radiant sunshine. Conditions can turn quickly in these mountains.
Have a great day.
