    Default Weather around Neels gap

    Anybody have info on weather this time of year around Neels gap. Starting a section hike at springer the 27th, and looking for some local, firsthand knowledge other that the weather channel. Any info on water sources along the section would be appreciated as well. Guthooks entries are a little dated as of today.

    Any significant rain lately?

    How are temps this time of year?

    How does the humidity “feel” this time of year?

    Any other ground knowledge would be greatly appreciated.

    cheers,

    B_C

    I live in atlanta and it has been very dry for the past couple of weeks. I hiked up to blood mountain on labor day and was able to get water at slaughter creek but it may not have rained since then. I have a section hike planned for mid october but unless we get some rain soon that may not happen.

    Cool at night, still very warm days and many dry water sources here 26 miles NOBO of Hot Springs. Fire danger increasing since 20+ days without rain. Check with Mountain Crossings for their recent info.
    Sleep on the ground, rise with the sun and hike with the wind....

    There is no water at the intersection of the AT and Slaughter Creek. However, if you do a side trip down Slaughter Creek Trail, the creek is flowing fairly well.

    Big County, Hello, You ever try City-Data? Google City-Data.com Blairsville, the nearest town to Neels gap. Lots of info on weather conditions, year round. Highs, lows, averages. Good place to see average temps, rain, snowfall, wind for a particular month. Nice easy to read graphs, gotta scroll down a bit. kk
