Remember we continue our look and listen to local Nelson music artist John White. This past December he sold his 40,000th CD! You’ll be hearing selections from John’s latest CD, At My Leisure, released last year. Many of you know John from his days as a teacher right here in Nelson County, Virginia. You can read more about John below today’s weather cast.
Winter has left the building, at least for a few days. Monday started with some showers early, then peeks of sun, then showers, then more sun. No one got any real rainfall, but it was a very pleasant day. If you liked Monday, you’ll love Tuesday. Temps will easily reach the lower 70’s in the valley and the mid 60’s on the mountains as a warm front moves through the. Tuesday will be much like yesterday as far as the rain. We’ll start with some light showers and a little fog, then partly sunny, then more showers late. Winds will begin kicking up as well.
By late Wednesday afternoon a cold front to our west arrives and the clash with the warmer air in Central Virginia may even trigger a thunderstorm or two. This shouldn’t be of much concern but a rumble here or there certainly isn’t out of the question. To our west lots of areas from my old stomping ground in the mid-south near Memphis will be under the gun for very severe weather. By the time it all gets here hours later it will have lost much of it’s punch. By the weekend temps finally cool back down to near seasonal normals.
