Weather in the Woods

We aggregate data from the National Weather Service, National Park Service, Weather Underground, and friendly twitter and blog feeds to help hikers understand weather and road conditions for the Daniel Boone National Forest and Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

Each station (GRSM, CUGA, and DBNF) offers current weather observations, forecasts, webcams, archives, and climate information that updates every 15 minutes. Smell the mountain air, through the internet.
