We’re back in the saddle today. We’ve been gone over the past few days doing weather from the road over the Thanksgiving holiday. Before getting started, I just have to comment on this today’s weather photo sent to us by Lyna Watson down at Wintergreen Hardware in Nellysford. This is a shot her friend Craig, (sorry Craig can’t remember you last name) got over Thanksgiving up at Wintergreen. Yep folks, that is a bobcat! Not a bad shot. Thanks Craig and Lyna for sending that one on to us!
Not to worry today, no bobcats in the forecast. After a nice rainfall Monday, better weather is in the mix today. After a lingering morning shower or two with some passing clouds, we’ll see mostly sunny skies and fairly mild conditions, thought it will be windy from time to time, and slowly falling temps by late in the day. By midweek overnight temps cool to near seasonal normals. The next chance for rain right now is roughly Sunday when we could see snow showers as well. There is a slight chance of showers Wed night into early Thursday, but I think that system will be mainly dry at this point.
