Rainy Sunday on Tap as low pressure moves away


Just a quick update for Sunday. Local radar pretty much tells the story for today. Look for light to moderate rain throughout the day with mostly cloudy skies. We have already picked up about a tenth of an inch of rain at NCL-Nelson County Life Magazine in Greenfield. Other river and rain gauges across the county generally showed no more than .25 inches of rain as of 10AM. We might get a tiny peek at sun much later in the evening, but that’s about it. Local satellite views show a large area of clouds across our area from what is left of tropical storm Barry. All he is now is just a low pressure area. As I discussed yesterday, the effects from Barry here will be minimal, but we will get much needed rain from what’s left. If you want to read more about Barry in the hurricane center’s final advisory, you can look here.

Here in Nelson County and Central Virginia look for moderate rain to continue throughout the day as the low pulls NE away from us later today. Winds will kick up to near 25 MPH at times from the NE. Cooler with highs around 68-70. Tonight rain off and on but diminishing as we work toward morning. Lows around 60.

Monday clouds still hang around but only slight chances of rain, warmer with high in the low 80’s.

I’ll have the complete weather Monday morning with the week ahead and rain total for today, etc. That will post around 5AM Monday.

Have a great Sunday!
