2020 Spring and Summer mountain thread.

Backpacked in a mile and a half and camped at 5000’ overnight. No clue on temps but put my new 5-degree sleeping bag to the test and it shined.  Was a beautiful day covering 6 miles today even though I didn’t hear a single turkey.  Here’s a pic of camp yesterday evening.EFF468A7-AF84-4946-BE7F-2D3BFD0B83E5.thumb.jpeg.0cc9712d13f3d2bb4c2c2d3b3ace7655.jpeg

Yeah high winds and some big boomers and torrential rainfall will be the biggies.  Maybe some hail also. Be safe and alert. You cant rule out a quick spin up from one of these storms.

Had heavy rain from probably 8 pm to 5 am, lots of lightning at times. Winds at our house weren’t as bad as I was prepared for, working down here around Franklin and both rivers are out of their banks in spots and have seen some trees down.  Co-worker down in SC got brushed by the Seneca tornado, they have some damage but nothing like in town he said.

That’s the worst wind and rain I’ve seen in a long time. Most of the county is without power and lots of flooding. We ended up with 8.25 inches of rain. 

Wow that’s a crazy amount of rain, we’ve got a lot of flooding too. Some of the worst here in the past 15 years.

Looks like we are entering a period of below average temperatures for the next few weeks.. very few 70s, mostly 60s and 50s in the mountains. Quite a bit of rain too

I will take it without the rainfall. Looks like a good chance for some snow tomorrow morning for elevations above 3500 feet.

Several places here along Todd Railroad Grade road are in terrible shape from those rains

Got up early this morning and was not disappointed...except that calm winds were forecasted and were in the 20-25mph range, which made those 30's feel even colder. I learned that even 30% of the moon is enough to screw up a shot too. Anyway, from left to right that is Mars, Saturn, Jupiter, the milky way, and I even got a Lyrid meteor in there. db633ec2bd9178eb20c939213095d49e.jpg

Awesome shot, I need to take some night time pics, got a great spot for it where I camped last week.  Have to wait for them to reopen the Parkway or hike in like 3 miles uphill the whole way instead of a mile slightly downhill.

The overnight and morning models continue to show and cold and unsettled pattern for the next several weeks. The GFS has even been showing some high elevation snow for around the 26th... The main thing is though is it looks like we are going to have a predominant trough in the east the next week or so.

Enjoy this coming Wednesday because this may be the only time this happens for the next couple of weeks (if this holds true); NAM agrees:

NWS GSP forecast for Avl:

Emphasis on "Calm"

The 12z GFS is still advertising snow for around the 26th and the 27th. The main thing is there is a big signal for another significant trough in the east.  Actually the next two weeks the trough in the east just reloads for us... Where was this at this winter?!
