Before we head off into the weather, want to say thanks to Ann Strober for the beautiful sunset picture she sent over the weekend. Ann always sends us really nice photos. Ann, we always appreciate them!
We also continue with our look & listen to local Nelson music artists. All of this week we’ll be hearing tracks from singer / songwriter Lindsey Osborne’s collection. Yep, that would be the sister of NCL Photographer, Hayley Osborne! Be sure to check out Lindsey’s info below and stay tuned to hear today’s cut as we head out of weather.
A potent storm system has been working it’s way up the eastern seaboard over the past day. It brought light rain and some light snow showers to parts of Virginia, but gave the NE U.S. a big shot of winter weather. Originally last week it looked as though the storm would give Central Virginia some significant snow, but the low pressure area responsible for the big snows to our north didn’t get close enough to really dramatically affect our area.
Look for skies to become partly sunny as Monday wears on, but winds will pickup as well, sometime gusting to near 30 MPH from the west. There will be some upslope snow showers to the west through Tuesday with a stronger winter storm system possible by week’s end. Temperatures will be generally in the 40’s for valley highs this week and 30’s on the mountains. By next weekend we head into the deep freeze in a big way. Overnight lows will be in teens and single digits!
