We continue with our look & listen to local Nelson music artists. This week we’ll be hearing tracks from lefty mandolin & guitarist, Jeff Vogelgesang. Yep that would be Jan’s Smith’s hubby. You heard Jan week before last right here. Be sure to check out Jeff’s info below and learn how you can have Jeff and Jan come play at your very own event! Stay tuned to hear today’s cut as we head out of weather.

Want to point out a couple of things before kicking off the weather. You can click here to see more info about UVa Community Credit Union opening their newest branch in Nellysford. And an update on The Dogwood Restaurant’s opening in Nellysford as well. I spoke to owner Dennis Hunt on Wednesday and they are very, very close.

Wednesday was one of the nicest days in a long time. Temperatures in the valley warmed to the low 50’s making it feel a little like early spring. Skies were sunny like the photo above taken from the deck at Stoney Creek Bar & Grill. Winds were light, so it was a nice break from the bitterly cold temperatures we’ve seen lately. Unfortunately, Thursday we’re headed back to true winter weather. Though we may start the day with some sun, skies will turn mostly cloudy with snow showers, in particular on the mountains. This is not a system to get worked up over, but we’ll see some bursts of snow from time to time throughout the day. Winds will kick up by afternoon as well sometimes reaching 30 MPH from the NW with higher gusts on the mountaintops.

By Thursday night skies begin clearing out with temperatures dropping into the teens again for valley lows and around 5-10 degrees on the mountains. Friday will be cold, with a little warming by the weekend. The weekend looks variably cloudy with ample sunshine but some clouds to boot. No major precipitation is on the horizon again until Tuesday of next week.
