Clear blue skies greet our mountaintop dwellers this Saturday. The air is calm and only thin patches of clouds share the distant horizon with the orange and yellow gradients of sunrise. It’s going to be a hot day across East Tennessee, with temps at the lodge expected to get close to 70°. There are slight chances of popup showers and thunderstorms this afternoon, so early starts and departures from the summit for day hikers are in everyone’s best interests for staying dry. Winds could gust up to 20mph as clouds and storms build later. Weather for Sunday looks quite similar.
Have a great day.
