Yesterday saw us stuck in a cloud from start to finish, but today is back to abundant sunshine far and wide. Conditions are delightful around the lodge with temps in the low 60s currently. Overnight lows continue to dip down to the mid 40s. The air is calm with only the occasional breeze. Tomorrow looks like it’ll be fairly cut-and-paste from today, but come Friday the weather is expected to sour over the Smokies. Rain will move in and linger well into Saturday, after which the temps across the region will drop significantly. It’s likely that the precip will have halted before the thermometer reaches the freezing mark, so there’s no threat of any white fluff flying for the first time this autumn just yet. The mountain continues to see crowds of people, with folks come from all around to watch the changing of the leaves and to take advantage of these stellar skies.
