This guy above must know hot weather is back in the picture. Our NCL photographer, Diana Garland, got this shot of the cute little fellow cooling himself on the glass!

Did you feel how nice it was Monday night and Tuesday morning? We ate supper on the mountain last night with a friends of ours up on Devil’s Knob at The Levels, it was actually chilly by the time we left there. Overnight lows here in the valley even fell to the low 50’s. On the mountain it was warmer with a low of 63. Many times we have that when an inversion sets up.

We’ll have a short burst of a very hot weather over the next 48 hours before we have some almost Fallish temperatures this weekend. We also have a slight chance of severe weather on Thursday afternoon as a frontal boundary makes its way through the area. You can see the areas outlined below, along the references from the NWS:

A HEAT INDEX NEAR 100 DEGREES IS EXPECTED THURSDAY AFTERNOON AS HEAT
AND HUMIDITY INCREASES ACROSS THE MID ATLANTIC.

A FEW SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE POSSIBLE THURSDAY EVENING AND
THURSDAY NIGHT AS A COLD FRONT APPROACHES THE REGION FROM THE OHIO
VALLEY.

There is a slight risk for a tornado or two on Thursday afternoon, but I think the better chances of widespread severe weather are slightly north of Nelson County. And what about old tropical depression # 4, now named Tropical Storm Dean. It’s still holding together and by Sunday peaks my interest. By then we’ll have to start watching him to see what’s really going to happen. Here’s the latest tracking map:
