This time of year has it’s own beauty like the shot above from here in Greenfield. The clouds as the sun makes it’s way up in the morning makes for a perfect picture!
Did your hat blow off yesterday and last night? The winds have been brutal over the past 36 hours and unfortunately we have one more day of it to go before they finally settle down somewhat Thursday afternoon. Still breezy, but not as gusty as we have seen. You might not pay as much attention to the wind if the temperatures were up, but with gusty winds blowing as high as 30-40 MPH at times, the wind chill vales have been at 0Â° or below. The wind woke us up here in Greenfield early Wednesday morning around 3AM when it started howling off of Devil’s Knob. I spoke with folks up in Afton who said they had also had some wind damage. Overnight lows have been in the single digits for two nights in a row upon the mountains. NCL-Wintergreen Nature Foundation never topped the freezing mark Wednesday. Their high only made it to a balmy 19 degrees! Don’t look for temps to make it above freezing Thursday either if you are in the mountains. It will be Friday before the mercury makes it above 32, but only to the upper 30’s then.
By the weekend, temperatures warm to the low & mid 50’s in the valley and upper 40’s to low 50’s mountains. We’re even talking 60Â° by next Monday. But lots of cold to go through between now and then.
