After receiving several inches of rain these past couple days, it appears we’re finally due for a break in the wet weather. It’ll be a short reprieve, but a welcome one nonetheless. Conditions will be cooler now through the majority of this weekend. We’re already starting things off close to the freezing mark this morning, and our day time high isn’t expected to escape the 40s. It should be a mix of sun and clouds atop the mountain with calm air. Tonight and into tomorrow morning we’ll witness a return toward more rocky weather. There is a chance for rain and winds up to 30 mph overnight, but conditions should improve by Friday afternoon. Trails are likely to still be squishy underfoot from all the precipitation, but creek crossings and drainages ought to be much more manageable for the average hiker by now. Be sure and layer up for your visit to the top, winter’s chilly breath isn’t done with us yet!
