Afton, Virginia

If you’ve ever dropped by D’Ambolas Restaurant on Route 151 you no doubt seen Vito the cat on deck! Yvette caught this shot of him recently enjoying one of the great summer nights we’ve been having. Vito’s been on vacation this past week, so have Phil, Linda and the gang. Not to worry, they reopen tonight! Vito will seat you!

It will be a great night to go out and hear Jan Smith playing in the deck at Stoney Creek Bar & Grill too! You can get all of the info about her performance tonight by clicking here. We’re going!

Thursday was a pretty quiet day weatherwise across Nelson County unless you were way down in the far Southeast section of the county. During the afternoon they got some very heavy rains there.Though none of our NCL Weathernet stations had any rain in them, one of the flood watch systems at Bent Creek did pickup .20″ of rain during the past 24 hours.

The current surface map shows an old front making its way out of here today with high pressure and sunny skies returning. So will the hot temps! I can’t totally rule out a renegade afternoon thunderstorm, but chances are about 10% or less.Local satellite shows plenty breaks in the clouds and clearing skies working in.

On the National Forecast Map, high pressure to our north continues to build in today bringing less humid air with sun on the increase as the day wears on. Warm today – hot over the weekend!
