Weather and Stream Conditions Forecast - Coming Week
In a nut shell, the weather and stream conditions are not good. The stream levels
will continue to get higher today and in the morning. Currently Little River is flowing
at 987 cfs and 3.5 feet, way too high to safely wade. Oconaluftee River is flowing
at 2440 cfs and 3.88 feet, or way too high to safely wade. There is no point in
giving the Cataloochee Creek levels - they are high.

These stream levels will continue to rise throughout the day and into tomorrow
morning. Right now, 5:00 AM this morning, most of the park has received an inch
and a half of rain. Rain is expected to continue to be heavy at times today and
won't end until sometime tomorrow. The hazardous weather outlook says the
Smokies Mountains could get another couple of inches of rain.

In Gatlinburg, tomorrow's high will be near 46 with a 60% chance of rain. The low
will go down to 26. Wednesday will be sunny, with a high near 47 and a low of
around 28. Thursday's high will be near 42 and a low that night of 22. I don't know
what to tell you to do.
Ask David Knapp of the Trout Zone. After living in Colorado
for the last year or two, he probably thinks the weather is nice in the Smokies.

Friday's high will be 48 and the low that night around 31 but "Hear Yee This".
There will be a 30% chance of rain and snow. Saturday's forecast shows a 50%
chance of rain and snow with a high near 51. James Marsh will inject that this will
be increased as the front gets closer. I've been right about this the last several
times I have made that prediction so maybe, my time will come.
I mean look at
what happened to the Crimson Tide and Ohio State.
Now my favorite team  
AU has to play my next favorite team FS for a national championship, something I
always knew could happen.
