Happy Weekend, After a gorgeous afternoon on the mountain yesterday, we've been riddled with intermittent showers. Some have been downpours while others are light mists. The bulk of Friday's 0.9" of rainfall came in a rush during the night. We'll see how much we report tomorrow in what should hopefully be the culmination of this tropical system. Sunday certainly looks to be more promising in the way of sunny and dry conditions. Yesterday's high temperature turned out to be 64 degrees, with a low of 53. It is currently 56, cloudy and rainy, but the winds have finally scaled back. It was getting pretty raucous at times, especially if the rain was coming in at every angle along with it. Enjoy your weekend, and if you're visiting the region for the July 4th holiday, be sure and include a trip to Mt. LeConte in your plans. Take care!
Elsewhere in the Smokies, the Flame Azalea are out in force on Andrews Bald.
