Monday was a tranquil day as we depart from the warm late fall weather. Overnight we saw showers scattered showers across the area, but no particular area saw any real significant rainfall. Colder nights are ahead and even a mention of snow flurries in the forecast for the higher elevations on Tuesday as a cold front pushes through. The remainder of the week looks much cooler until early next week when temps rise to the low 60’s on Monday. Expect gusty winds over the next 24 to 36 hours as the fronts moves east away from Nelson. Some areas can expect gusts as high as 30 MPH.

The current national forecast map shows a cold front over Central Virginia now moving east toward the Atlantic. Behind the front expect sometimes gusty WNW winds with clearing skies and colder temps at night.
