Cassidy @ Basic

Cassidy inside
Remember Cassidy? Oh come on you know her, she once was a face at D’Ambola’s Restaurant up in Afton. Earlier this year she moved away to Lynchburg. But, Cassidy decided she wanted to be back closer to Nelson. So we walk into Basic Necessities this past weekend and there she was! We’re glad to see Cassidy back in the area. Note to Basic…good get! Welcome back Cassidy!

It was a perfect weekend to be dining outdoors like the table above that Cassidy was waiting on. Oh, I almost forgot. Before moving on, check out the close up of Sarah Loken below. We didn’t realize it when we were taking the picture, but take a look at her friend!

Like I just mentioned, the weekend was about as perfect as you could get. Though we had some cold temperatures last night in the valley and Saturday night up in the mountains. NCL-Wintergreen Nature Foundation on Devil’s Knob recorded a low around 38 degrees early Sunday morning. Overnight last night we had some cool temps again, but a thin layer of clouds that moved in helped to keep the temps up just a tad in many areas. Though we did make it into the upper 30’s here at NCL-Nelson County Life Magazine in Greenfield just before 7 AM. We even had some patchy frost.. Nothing widespread, but I did see several patches of frost in the pasture. Sunday was a pleasant but cool day with temps topping out near 70 in some locations while Wintergreen never made it out of the 50’s….. almost 60 but never quite made it.

Later this morning we’ll take a look and see if we had any surprise low readings overnight. Sunday night was the last chance for any frost or unusually low temps for the next several days. We will be warming up for the remainder of the week after today. Temperatures will be in the upper 70’s to lower 80’s Tuesday and beyond.

Still keeping an eye out there in the Atlantic on Tropical Depression Ingrid. It’s still holding on as a tropical depression, but not an impressive one. Wind shear, a condition that can limit development, is really working on Ingrid. It’s still not impossible for it to emerge as a storm or even hurricane over the long term, but the next 48 hours will determine that. It could fall completely apart during that time. If it survives then we’ll be taking a closer look.

The National Forecast Map shows high pressure in control today to the north giving us another cool fall like day. By Tuesday our winds switch a little more easterly giving us slightly warmer temperatures. Most of the week looks sunny at this time, though I see a chance for some clouds mid week east of the Blue Ridge if a moisture layer were to work in here from the Atlantic. Still a bit too soon to tell.
