Thought I would take advantage of the last day of unseasonable sunny warmth, get out and do a bit of hiking today. Headed up into SW VA to the App Trail and hit some high old USDA Forest Survey Markers. A little early morning chill gave away to a comfortable climb and t-shirt weather. 72° F with a cool breeze in the afternoon on the 22nd Day of October at 4,000 ft. Can't beat that! All in all a beautiful day on the trails.

Thinking most of the Valley scores really nice totals tomorrow. Plenty of 2" being projected across the TVA Watershed, even up here in our neck of the woods. I'm more confident with all the mesoscales holding hands and lifting that surface low right up over the Smokies and Blue Ridge. Bring it!3331de72769ba726300a94fbbf4a7ffa.jpg

Liking the rainy look on the radar this AM.  Fall is beginning to be in the air.   This will hurry the leaves along at the lower elevations. The winds at higher elevations will probably end the season above 5000' for whatever was left.  These rainy days really bring out leaf color.

Saw some pics on FB this AM of flooding in Roan Mountain yesterday.  I will see if I can get permission to post a few.  Water got crazy high in places.  Here is a story from the JC Press, but doesn't quite encompass the scope of the impact.

Parts of Roan Mountain and Hampton have received upwards of 3" of rain this evening. The intensity of the rain has tapered off fortunately. Not quite as much as the 4" or so that fell last Monday. Hopefully the Doe River isn't flooding again in such a short succession.

Just had a brief light snow flurry here at the house. Mostly granular in form, but some regular size flakes. I must say this is the earliest I can ever remember seeing frozen precip. Even if it's just in the air.
