First Snow of The Season
Wintergreen Mountain, Virginia


Updated : 8:00 AM EST for decreasing clouds. Look for more sun to peek through as the day wears on. Morning clouds and fog will begin to dissipate allowing more sun.

Well, it’s official. The first snowfall of the season hit over the weekend upon the mountains at places like Wintergreen Resort and Devil’s Knob. Our NCL Mountain Photographer, Christina Kline grabbed the photo above along with several other great ones you can see by clicking here. Late Friday night the light rain turned to snow in the higher elevations. Though not enough to create any problems, most areas above 2000 feet saw at least a couple of inches of snow. Don’t look for any snow over the next several days, temperatures will be on the rise as milder winds blow in.

Before we get off into the weather, several things were going on this weekend that you can check out on the left hand side of your screen under Recent Posts including the happy ending to a search for a missing 8 year old boy over the weekend at Wintergreen, Cardinal Point’s Annual Oyster Roast, The Rockfish Valley Community Center’s Elegant Evening of Jazz, and Nelson Middle School’s production of School House Rock. Be sure to check them all out!

As mentioned off the top, we’re headed into milder weather over the next 2-3 days, even nearing 70° degrees by tomorrow. We had some scattered light showers overnight thanks to a warm front that scooted through. So look for much milder weather before we head back into more seasonal temps behind a cold front Wednesday. The end of the week looks seasonal and cooler with temps back in the 50’s for daytime highs.

Maps provided by:

The national current surface map shows a warm front in the area with a weak cold front west moving through.

Over the next several hours the front works east and eventually falls apart. The next weather maker, a stronger cold front is to our west. It promises chances for rain by Wednesday.
