Girl Scout Troop 249
Roseland & Lovingston, Virginia
What a great weekend we had across Nelson County and Central Virginia! Up front and first we want to send out kudos again to the Nelson County High Governors, soccer team. These guys did a great job and barely missed being the champs! There’s lots of coverage here by simply scrolling down to our coverage from the weekend. Or just search soccer in the box to your upper left. Yvette was there all weekend and will be putting together some really nice stuff over the coming days!
Above in today’s pictures, Girl Scout Troop 249 from Roseland was out putting in some beautiful plants for folks at the Johnson Senior Center in Roseland and Lovingston. We’ll have lots more on what and why they were planting in our upcoming July issue of NCL.
After a few light showers overnight in Nelson, this week promises to be a milder week than last. We reached temperatures near 100 on Friday, but we won’t see any of that this week, though we’ll warm to near 90 again by the weekend.
On the current surface map below, high pressure to the north and NE brings in low level moisture. A series of upper level low pressure systems march over our area during the next 36 hours keeping chances for scattered afternoon thundershowers in the forecast.
Current-Sat Surface Map
On the National Forecast Map, a low pressure system to our northeast maintains its strength for at least a day or so along with NE high pressure bringing down milder air with low level moisture. This combines to continue chances for scattered thunderstorms in the afternoons through at least Wednesday.
