Yesterday’s high reached 47 degrees. The overnight low was 30 degrees. It was 32 degrees and partly cloudy at 7 am observation.
Winter weather is on the way just in time to kickstart the winter season at LeConte. Wind Advisory will be issued from 7pm Sunday - 7am Monday. Rain moves in tonight then transitioning over to snow later Monday. Temps will plummet Monday into the low teens which makes for very dangerous conditions if you are not prepared! Traction devices will be needed to reach the summit. Also, the lodge is closed and there are no services until Spring. Plan your trip accordingly and allow plenty of time to get down before dark. I have had a wonderful weekend on the mountain. Myrtle and Cliff Tops were high on the list for areas to soak up the warm weather before the arctic air moves in. Who’s ready for some snow on the mountain? Now we wait! See you at the top!
