Lots to talk about in the weather department this morning. Frost, freezing temps, and a new tropical storm named Noel (pronounced knoll) out in the Atlantic. But first, we want to thank Olivia Ellis for sending in this morning’s beautiful weather shot from one of the markers entering Nelson County. Look at all of the color in that picture and the brilliant blue sky! We really needed last week’s rain, but it was nice to see some pretty Fall sky this past weekend as well. Thanks again Olivia for sending the shot our way! If you have a weather photo you’d like us to share in the morning’s weathercast simply send it to weather – at – Be sure to tell us where the picture was taken and a brief description of what we’re looking at.

Also we have posted lots of new web stories this morning. Be sure to either scroll around to see them or look on the left side of your screen under Recent Posts where you can click directly to them. There’s one I know folks around Nellysford & Wintergreen are going to be interested in. Confirmation about the Dogwood Restaurant opening in a few weeks, finally. Great News! We spoke directly with Cathy Hunt yesterday in Amherst and got the skinny on what’s up. Don’t forget to check that and other news & photos out this morning.

Talk about a change in the temperatures! Many areas saw lows last night in the 30’s even 20’s in some locations, about time don’t you think as we enter the last few days of October. Some locations saw frost too for the very first time. We should really begin to see more cooling temps now as we enter November. Just an FYI we change time and lose that hour next weekend on November 4th. – I don’t see any chances for rain in the forecast until we get out about a week, and you know how reliable those extended forecasts can be! Not! If Noel does something crazy and throws moisture our way or heads this direction, that can certainly change. But the main weather feature over the next 48 hours will be very Fall like temperatures.

Speaking of TS Noel, here’s the latest tracking map of the location and where it might be headed. I’ll keep you posted if it looks like we’ll get any effects:

The current national forecast map high pressure in firm control of our weather. That generally means clear skies and gentle winds at night that will allow temperatures at or slightly below freezing overnight Monday, once again.

Out 48 hours high pressure is still in charge which means fair Fall like weather.

And for those of you keeping score at home the numbers as of 11:59 PM last night Low temperature readings from the night before are generally posted no later than 12 noon when there’s something to really look at.
