The rain this weekend didn’t stop folks from turning out for the annual Lovngston Christmas Parade this past Sunday. And our Hayley Osborne was out there getting the shots despite the rain and the crutches! Not to worry, Hayley is getting better and recovering well, though she’s hard to keep still for very long!
It certainly began feeling like winter weather and Christmas yesterday when those cold winds began blowing in. Even last night the winds stayed up but did begin dying out after midnight. It will still be breezy today but nothing like we saw yesterday. Most of the high winds gusts were confined to the mid 30’s MPH. NCL-Wintergreen Nature Foundation  recorded a gust of 35.3 MPH, this morning it was very cold there with a low in the teens. While NCL-Delfosse Vineyard & Winery  recorded a gust of 33 MPH. All of the other NCL stations were around 30 MPH. There were higher gusts, but confined west and north of the BRP. Today the winds will still be breezy, but on their way to settling down late this afternoon and evening. Snow is in the forecast tonight especially up on the mountains. It continues in the forecast Wednesday and Wednesday night. Right now it looks like a dusting of snow in the valley with up to an inch at Wintergreen and along the BRP by the time it ends on Wednesday night. This doesn’t appear to be a significant system right now, but a nice prelude to winter.
By the weekend, temps warm just a bit and there’s a chance of showers by Friday. Temps Sat & Sun will be mainly in the low 50’s. Speaking of the weekend, there’s lots taking place holiday wise. Don’t forget the monthly RVCC pancake breakfast was moved just this month to Sat Dec 8th and it’s followed immediately by the Holiday Community Market held at RVCC. There also a big celebration by six of Nelson’s wineries and our newest member, Blue Mountain Brewery.
