UPDATE Nelson County Life Magazine HERE
Weathercast by Tommy Stafford, Nelson County Life Magazine
Updated: 11:00 AM EDT Sunday morning (NEXT UPDATE SUNDAY NIGHT)
Though no valley locations received snow on Saturday many mountain tops and ridges did see around an inch of snow. The majority of the winter weather stayed to the south and east of Nelson. Richmond picked up a couple of inches in places. Sunday will be a sunny, but very, very cold day with highs only nearing the upper 20’s in the valley and upper teens up on Wintergreen. Wind chills will be bitterly cold with gusty winds from time to time.
Sunday night will be extremely cold with low in the single digits for everyone. On the mountains you are looking at an overnight low between 0-5Â°. In the valley at least 7-10Â° and if the winds subside lower.
