I was upon Devil’s Knob yesterday talking to the Tim Merrick and Julie Benner with Wintergreen Real Estate’s Discovery Center. It’s within days of opening and folks it’s a very nice place! It’ll have the Black Bear Cafe inside with great gourmet coffee, along with sandwiches and soups all day from breakfast through dinner, and wi-fi wireless internet! There’ll be more coming out about this in the next few days, but their open house is December 28th from 3-5 PM. We’ll see you there!
There will be some light freezing precip move through the area this morning. Most of this is sleet. Surfaces in the valley are just above freezing, but there could be some light accumulation on the mountains.
Tuesday was a pretty uneventful day. For the most part it was sunny, but a thin layer of clouds moved in by afternoon keeping things cool, but not cold. We reached a high here in the valley of 47 degrees at NCL-Nelson County Life Magazine. Last night was not as cold as the previous night. We didn’t see any of those teens, like those we saw on Tuesday morning since the clouds kept the temps up.
Today will be a mostly cloudy day. We’ll see some peeks of sun, but nothing to get too excited over. I can’t even rule out a stray snow shower up in the mountains, but again nothing to care about. There is a chance of snow or sleet early Friday morning and then again Friday night perhaps mixed with some light freezing rain, but the system is looking less impressive now than yesterday. It looks like better chances for just plain rain over the weekend, but again not a widespread event that would squash any weekend plans.
I really want to look at the models that come out Wednesday night to get a better handle on this, but right now none of it looks impressive unless something dramatically changes.
