Well we managed to dodge any atmospheric nastiness yesterday, and today has started out magnificently so far. The sun is shining brightly over the mountain with some low lying clouds obscuring parts of the TN valley and over yonder in NC. There remains a slight chance of isolated storms late this afternoon, though, so don’t get complacent out there on trail and get surprised by something that might unload on you without a rain shell handy. The chances over the weekend are still high for intermittent storms. Temps will continue to hover between 50s and 60s at the lodge these next several days. The Grass of Parnassus are still putting on a great show around the mountain. The impressive display should last another solid week or two for hikers to enjoy.
