Weathercast by Tommy Stafford, Nelson County Life Magazine
Tuesday’s High Temp at NCL-Nelson County Life Magazine in the Rockfish Valley : 73.8Â°
Tuesday’s High Temp at NCL-Wintergreen Nature Foundation on Devil’s Knob @ Wintergreen Mountain : 68.9Â°
What an early peek at Spring we had Monday! Check out those high temps for the valley and mountains yesterday. Mid 70’s down below and mid 60’s on the mountains! While we were dealing with nice warm temps here in Central Virginia, much of the Midwest & Central US were dealing with tornadoes and severe weather.
We’ve been getting several nice comments about our addition of local music artists to our site last week. Jan Smith is currently our featured artist for the week. Here’s two of the most recent comments we got yesterday:

“Thanks for all you do for us. Jan’s music is wonderful. I’m going download the album from iTunes. What a bargain! [gh]”
Appreciate the nice comments and we love Jan as well, she’s a great singer!
Tuesday will be another nice one folks! Look for temperature back in the 70’s once again. The only difference Tuesday will be increasingly gusty winds throughout the afternoon. By evening Tuesday some of the winds gusts will be kicking up to 25-30 MPH with gusts to near 40 overnight. Over the next several days our chances for rain will increase as well. We start off Tuesday night with rain continuing into Wednesday morning. A much better organized system make a run at us Thursday afternoon into Friday. By the weekend we are still looking at chances for snow by Sunday. That’s several days out, but we’ll continue to see how it develops. Temperatures begin to drop to seasonal normals by the weekend as well with overnight lows in the mid 20’s.
