Weather in the Red River Gorge

You may have heard the saying, "If you don't like the weather here, wait a few minutes". This may seem true at times in Kentucky, where the weather can come at us from any direction except due east. The only exception in the Red River Gorge is that east isn't always an exception.

Checking the current weather conditions and forecast online before you go is a good idea, but be prepared for unexpected changes. Below are two links you can use to check the current weather conditions in the Gorge. One of them will throw ads at you faster than Mother Nature can throw weather at Kentucky, and the other simply provides weather information.

The location used in the following links is Slade, KY, Zip 40376.

Moon Data
Camping under a full moon is awesome! The Astronomical Applications Department of the US Navy Observatory provides lunar information about moon phase, moonrise, moonset, lunar transits, eclipses, and even a navigational star chart. If you are an astronomy buff, or just want to know what the moon will look like on your next over-night adventure, go to this link:
