Opportunity Ball @ Veritas Winery & Vineyard
Afton, Virginia

Low light OB

Another Opportunity Ball is now in the history books! This past weekend lots of folks packed Veritas Winery & Vineyard for the annual event. It was a great time and they raised lots of money for The Nelson County Community Fund. We had a great time for a very worthy cause. You can see many more pictures of Saturday night’s event by clicking here.

We have a short workweek coming up with Thanksgiving ahead, and weatherwise, look for a lot of clouds today especially if you’re near the eastern side of the BRP. A low level moisture layer will get trapped up next to the mountains, especially in the early part of the day. A common occurrence you hear us discuss from time to time called, cold air damming. We talked about it here in more detail from an earlier post. If high pressure can win out we may see the clouds wash out later in the day. Many areas especially south and west of the mountains may see plenty of sunshine and warm temps. If the cloud layer hangs in there look for cool temps near the mountains.

Early this week we start cool, then look for mild, even warmer temps mid-week before a strong system moves through Wednesday night into Thursday providing chances for rain and a rain / snow mix mountains by Friday. Thanksgiving Day looks rainy right now. Behind that system look for colder temps and windy conditions, much like we experienced last week.
