Have fun on the hike today. It's a good morning to get it started, if ya'll don't have a hangover. LOL. Nice n' cool. Perfect.

We've got some low clouds/fog going at the moment in the lower elevations (at least near the lake). Don't know if you'll be at the top before it burns off, but it would make on helluva view--to see the cloud deck from above, similar to the pic posted in the Weather Spot Gathering Thread.

Be safe...

Looks like you picked a good weekend. The frontal boundry is lifting north of us today, but little chance of rain per MRX.

NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE MORRISTOWN TN
342 AM EDT SAT APR 28 2012

.SHORT TERM (TODAY AND TONIGHT)...
A DEWPOINT GRADIENT MARKS THE LOCATION OF A FRONT BETWEEN CHA AND TYS. THIS FRONT WILL BE LIFTING NORTHWARD ACROSS THE AREA TODAY...PUTTING MOST OF THE AREA WITHING THE WARM SECTOR. A SW FLOW OF 10-15 MPH WILL MEAN WARMER TEMPS IN THE MID 80S SOUTH TO UPPER 70S NORTH. BY AFTERNOON THE FRONT WILL BE ACROSS ERN KY TO SRN W VA...PROVIDING A FOCUS FOR SHOWER AND THUNDERSTORM DEVELOPMENT. MOST ACTIVITY SHOULD BE NORTH OF THE AREA...BUT WILL INCLUDE A CHANCE POP FOR SW VA AND SLIGHT CHANCE FOR TN COUNTIES ALONG THE STATE BORDER. FORECAST SOUNDINGS AT TYS AND CHA SHOW A STRONG CAPPING INVERSION THAT WILL LIKELY PREVENT CONVECTIVE DEVELOPMENT. THE PATTERN REMAINS NEARLY STATIC THROUGH TONIGHT WITH THE FRONT STATIONARY NEAR OUR NORTHERN BORDER. WILL KEEP A CHANCE TO SLIGHT CHANCE POP GOING OVERNIGHT ACROSS THE NORTH.

.LONG TERM (SUNDAY THROUGH FRIDAY)...A BOUNDARY LINGERS NORTH OF THE AREA ON SUNDAY AND MONDAY...WILL KEEP THE HIGHEST CHANCES IN THENORTH FOR SUNDAY AND MONDAY. A SERIES OF WEAK TROUGHS TRACK THROUGH THE AREA ON TUESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY BRINGING ANOTHER CHANCE FOR CONVECTION EACH DAY. WILL CONTINUE WITH ONLY LOW CHANCES FOR THE PERIOD. STAYED BELOW MEX GUIDANCE FOR TEMPERATURES

Nearest rain at the moment is in far northeast/east Kentucky, and what looks like a few sprinkles in southwest North Carolina.

Hope it's been a good day for ya'll. Sucked that I had to work on such an awesome Saturday. But, got a little extra money in the till because of it--for what that is worth. Neutral

Enjoy the evening. Drink a cold one for me.

Great day of hiking! Not even that sore (yet). Need a couple more days up here!

I put a few pics on twitter. For some reason we can't get pics to post in the thread.

Good thing our frontal boundary moved back to the north, and out of our area. Some serious storms have blown up along it today. Some with very large hail. Wouldn't have made for an enjoyable camping trip dodging baseball sized hail. club

Enjoy dinner guys.
