Above, our Christina Kline grabbed this and many other shots at this weekend’s Oktoberfest at Wintergreen. Christina tells us it was packed and evryone had a great time!

In true Oktoberfest style, the band entertained the crowds!

What a perfect weekend across Nelson County and much of Central Virginia. Above our, Christina Kline, caught a beautiful shot up top at Wintergreen of the annual Oktoberfest. Fall officially arrived yesterday but it didn’t feel much like fall. Temps were around the 90° mark both Saturday & Sunday. Slightly drier air is working its way in after a weak frontal passage over the weekend. Monday will be milder, but we again are near the 90 degree mark on Tuesday and Wednesday. Cooler temps arrive late this week into next weekend.

There are several areas of disturbed weather out in the Atlantic that bear watching. Right now there’s no threat to the U.S. East Coast, but I will be watching these over the coming week. If they become more organized I’ll begin posting them here with more details. You can see a summary of them by clicking here.
