Henry reported from the mountain that the low was 23 and at 8:30 it was only up to 24, with clouds coming and going. It should warm up into the 40's-50's on the mountain today, 60's in the valley. They have about 4 inches of snow. Guests reported seeing snow just above the Bluffs on Alum Cave trail. He said that the trails were not slick yet as the snow is not hard packed. As of 8:30 am, US 441, Newfound Gap Road was closed, but they hoped to get it open soon. Call 865-436-1200, then hit 631 when someone begins to speak to check to see if it has reopened.
