It’s mostly overcast skies to kick off this final weekend of May. We’re looking at mostly cloudy conditions atop the mountain this morning with patchy glimpses of sunshine. Later this afternoon the storm chances ramp up and we anticipate seeing some rain overnight and into Sunday. Precip could even be heavy at times, so hopefully that doesn’t occur while anyone is out on trail. Between winds gusting up to 20mph at times, and temps hanging around the 40s, it’s going to feel quite cool for some compared to the onset of summer being felt below. Being a holiday weekend, it’s smart to assume that vehicular traffic in and around the park and its gateway communities will be busier than normal. Plan accordingly to have the most enjoyment and least frustration for your entire time here in the Smokies.
