Below are weather averages from 1971 to 2000 according to data gathered from the nearest official weather station. The nearest weather station for both precipitation and temperature measurements is BLOWING ROCK 1 NW which is approximately 4 miles away and has an elevation of 3,850 feet (320 feet higher than Big Ridge).
