I know that there are weather sites but right now I can't locate them. i am wondering how "late Fall" will it be around the priest in Late Oct. I don't think I will be able to get away for my next section hike until late Oct Early Nov. the area that I ended last fall was down at Rockfish Gap. I was thinking I would head south from there for a week or so which should put we up and over the Priest. What type of weather should I be expecting down there at this time of year?
I have done some searches of the towns but all of them seem to be in the valley and so the weather is a lot different down there. I am looking for folks who know this area well and can give me a good idea of what to expect. I am from up in the Ny area and so I expect cold it is really the snow and Ice that I am wondering about? Do you typically have your snow on the ground by then and does it stick or is it a passing thing?
A second question is this if you were doing a week +/- section where would you suggest as a good spot to jump off south of Rockfish Gap that will make it in the future fairly easy to get back on the trail at the same spot?
