August 20 Fog Report

I wish I had the time to break out the drone this morning as there really wasn't much in the way of fog until I got close to the office and then I could easily tell that while it was clear here at the...

August 19 Fog Report

 Looking around this morning, things were pretty clear except on Beech Mountain - where the fog was VERY thick. Valle Crucis was clear, as was Foscoe this morning. There was some light fog at the bottom of Sleepy Hollow.After seeing heavy fog at Beech...

August 18 Morning Fog Report

Early this week I received a few emails from readers asking me if I'm ever at home as I repeatedly reported that I was sharing our morning update "from the road". That is the case again this morning as I am spending my weekend...

August 13 Fog Report for the Mountains

As you can probably tell by the initial photo above, this morning's fog bank was one of the more impressive ones I've seen in a couple of years from atop Hwy 105 near Smoketree Lodge heading towards Foscoe.I heard from a few sources that...

August 12th, Foggy in the Valleys, Clear Elsewhere

As I looked around Boone, Blowing Rock and Banner Elk things looked pretty sunny and clear this morning. However, from Smoketree on Highway 105 down to Foscoe was, indeed, foggy.*** For those of you who have been following day to day, we saw another...
