There is still some great fall color but many leaves have also come down with the overnight wind gusts. (Photo by Skip Sickler)
The weather at Grandfather Mountain this morning is quickly alternating between sunny blue skies and dark clouds. Some snow flurries have been seen at the top of the Mountain near the Mile High Swinging Bridge.
