Pleasantly cool conditions graced the high country during this year's High Knob Naturalist Rally.  What an awesome event!

Time Is UTC

Low clouds and fog were featured during the morning, with lingering clouds well into the afternoon before conditions finally improved to generate some warming sunshine.  The PM MAX barely touching 
60 degrees on High Knob and Eagle Knob ( above ).

Temperatures were in the 50s during most of this year's Rally, peaking at 63 degrees at High Knob Lake and 60 degrees on High Knob and Eagle Knob with some help from mid-late afternoon sunshine.

These conditions were in dramatic contrast to a PM MAX of 81 degrees in the Tri-Cities, Va-Tn., ( from which some welcomed visitors came! ).

in the area.
