What a fantastic weekend! The slight threat for rain Sunday never panned out and we were left with great weather for all of the events over the weekend. Above is a shot I grabbed when covering the Rockfish River Day Saturday afternoon just south of Nellysford. That was one of many events we covered. Be sure to check out all of the recent posts on the left hand side of your screen just under the video widget. Speaking of, be sure to play the sights and sounds from this past weekend’s Farmers Market in our newly posted video. If you’ve never gone out to the Farmers Market on Saturday mornings, make it a point to go. It is great!

The weekend was quiet weatherwise. Temperatures worked back into the upper 80’s and low 90’s by Sunday. Look for the humidity to significantly increase again by this afternoon as temps again settle in around 90 for afternoon highs in the valley. We’re headed into an unsettled weather pattern for the next 2-4 days with increased chances for afternoon thunderstorms each day.

The current surface map shows a cold front going stationary to our north, while a typical Bermuda High pressure area sets up to our southeast. That will leave us with very humid conditions for most of the week. A cold front moves through by week’s end.

The National Forecast Map, shows the front hanging to our north with afternoon thunderstorms breaking out across the area over the next several days. Some of the storms that do get going have the potential to become strong, possibly severe in isolated areas.
