Pumpkin Carving @ Wintergreen
Wintergreen Mountain, Virginia

Above this past weekend, kids got the chance to carve their very own pumpkin at Wintergreen’s Annual Spook-Tacular event.

If there was any doubt that Fall would ever arrive, Sunday and Monday night took care of that. There were pretty good freezes both nights across the area with plenty of frost to go around. But the days have been great, perfect weather as we head toward Halloween tomorrow. Lots of Halloween events have been taking place like Wintergreen Resort’s Spook-Tacular. Our Hayley Osborne grabbed the shot above at one of the carving workshops. They had bat workshops, haunted houses, trick or treating, and the entire scary works!

Weatherwise no big changes over the next several days. We saw another pretty big frost this morning, but we won’t see that again, at least as widespread for several days, since temperatures will warm slightly. I can safely say the freeze Sunday night finished the growing season here in Greenfield. The basil is, uh, dead! Unfortunately after seeing some needed rain last week, there’s no real chances for it in the near future, 5-7 days.

We talked about Noel yesterday, today will be the last mention of him unless he does something unexpected and heads our way. All current forecasts show Noel heading out to sea away from the east coast. This late in the hurricane season seldom do hurricanes make landfall on the east coast. Only once in 100 years around 1899. By the way the predictions for an extremely active hurricane season never panned out. I have no faith in long range hurricane forecasts, nor should you! Ok enough editorial.

TS Noel, Here’s the latest tracking map of the location and where it’s headed.

The current national forecast map continues to show high pressure in firm control of our weather. That means clear skies with fair days and cool nights.

Out 48 hours high pressure is still in charge, though a cold front will work through mid-week slightly reinforcing the cool temps.
