It’s going to be a beautiful day at LeConte Lodge as we sun is out and the squirrels and birds have come out to play. While currently at 43 degrees and a high of 53 yesterday, we’re expecting much of the same for the next 24 hours. Additionally, 1.9 inches of rain were added to our yearly total. Over the next couple of days we’re expecting no rain and for temps to remain relatively warm although by Wednesday, there will be a different story to tell as temps are expected to drop again. More on that as we get closer. Until then, enjoy the last of the weekend!
