Rodes Farm Sunrise

What a near perfect weekend we had across Central Virginia and Nelson County. Faithful NCL web readers Henri & Elaine Weems caught the shot above and sent it to us. What a beautiful sunrise with the horse’s silhouette in the foreground. Got to see both of them Saturday night at Veritas’ Starry Nights. Thanks for the great photo!

This week will still be warm, but not the 102.8 degrees we saw last Friday. We’ll see plenty of 90’s this week, but I’ll take that! Very isolated thunderstorms are in the forecast for this afternoon. We’ll have some humidity this week, but again not as bad as last week. A series of cold fronts will move across the area this week, but we’ll pretty much remain dry. They will help keep the temps in the 90’s vs 100’s.

I am keeping an eye on a developing low off the coast of Africa that has been showing continued development. If it holds together it could impact our weather over the next 10 days. Just keeping tabs. NWS computer runs & discussion show it in the Caribbean by next week.

“Models continue to develop the low coming off west CST of Africa and move it
into Caribbean next weekend.”

The current surface map shows a weak frontal boundary working through the area Monday. Widely scattered thunderstorms will be possible with afternoon daytime heating. Most folks will stay dry, but the storms that do fire up have the potential to be strong.

On the National Forecast Map, behind the front high pressure takes control and stays in control of our weather for most of the week. This will provide briefly cooler temperatures on Tuesday before returning to the mid 90’s by Wednesday.
