Thursday was a another barn burner across Nelson County. Many areas reached the low & mid 90’s again with the heat index above 100 at times. Here at NCL-Nelson County Life Magazine we reached an afternoon high of 94 and picked up about .02″ of rain. Thursday was the last day we had to put up with the muggies. Milder air is on it’s way in for the weekend after some showers and maybe a thundershower today.
On the current surface map, a cold front is working its way through the area now.

On the National Forecast Map, by Friday afternoon the front works through the area. High pressure will build in for the weekend bringing milder temperatures.
Today’s Forecast Map
Though we are on the far north fringe of the slight risk area for severe weather, I don’t see much of a chance for it. Should we lose cloud cover later this morning and get some daytime heating, we might see some storms break out later in the day.
