Up close and personal with the clouds this morning. We’ll be lucky to shake them off today and catch any sunshine. Late this morning and throughout the afternoon the chances for rain and thunderstorms popping up across the region increases. Conditions should begin to clear overnight and Monday is supposed to be a much more pleasant day for playing in the woods. Temps are currently in the mid 50s and we should get into the mid 60s this afternoon. Nothing crazy expected from the wind in the coming days. Have the rain shells ready and use caution at creek crossings if an isolated rain shower rolls in and decides to unload later. The white bloom clusters of the Rosebay Rhododendron are starting to unfurl in the lower elevations. In the coming weeks they’ll be making their annual climb up the slopes.
