Usually trek across the Smokies on I40 during the winter. I am always apprehensive about getting "over the hump" with the road conditions.

it seems I can get a good report on the conditions except the 10 or so miles across the top.

Anyone have a good way to predict the road conditions at the top on any one given winter day?

What do you mean "at the top"? Are you talking about going through the park on 441 and Newfound gap? or staying on I-40 through the Pigeon River Gorge? I-40 is usually clear most day except for winter storms. 441 is controlled by the NPS and will close the road if conditions are not good but they maintain that road very good. Only in slippery conditions will they close it. You can call the Sugarland visitor center for condition info.
