As we head into the final full week of July, it appears this month is going to wrap up much like it started, with a lot of wet. The storm chances ramp up beginning later today, with the threat of isolated storms expected daily. Some could produce strong gusty winds and heavy amounts of rain once clouds flare up in the afternoon hours. So best to take care of business on trail early today and get snuggled into that cozy cabin if you have a reservation. Temps won’t be as warm in the upper 60s for a high, although such a difference might not be felt with all that sticky humidity. Plan your routes up and down the mountain accordingly as well. With so much rain this month, it doesn’t take much for creeks to rise fast these days. So a trail without footbridges that was dry and safely passable coming up may pose different unplanned hazards for the way down. This is in reference to trails like Rainbow Falls and Trillium Gap that have witnessed some large volumes of water churn through of late.
Have a great start to the week.
