Well nobody got windswept off of the mountaintop this weekend, but it sure was rough up here for a bit. Thankfully skies didn’t take long to clear late Saturday morning and treated us to another beautiful afternoon full of warmth and sunshine. Sunday has been pleasant as well, albeit with a bit more clouds in the sky. We even had a freakish mix of rain and snow flurries for a brief moment this morning whereas the thermometer took a quick dip to 36°. Was certainly an unexpected eyebrow raising moment. GSMNP had their hands full clearing downed trees and debris yesterday along the roads, but they were able to reopen US 441 (Newfound Gap Rd) in the middle of the afternoon. Looks like we have some more rain and storm action on deck for late this evening and into Monday morning before improving after lunch time. Temps will continue to stay mild with highs in the 50s and lows in the 40s.
