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.
Tuesday was a very Spring like day with temperatures in the valley in the mid to upper 70’s for afternoon highs. Though unusual, certainly not unheard of. Simply a prelude to Spring weather on it’s way in a few weeks. To our west, the overnight story has many areas of the mid south waking up to damage from very severe weather and deadly tornadoes, as very warm temperatures worked in. Today we can expect those warm temperatures back in the 70’s again with showers and thunderstorms by afternoon here in Central Virginia. Some strong thunderstorms could breakout later today. The area of concern in the Eastern U.S. is indicated above on the Storm Prediction Center’s Slight Risk Area. You can click on that map for more detailed discussion regarding the Mid Atlantic area. Though much of the energy from the storms Tuesday will have diminished, I can’t rule out some of these getting a bit angry given the very warm temps and moisture in place across our area.
We won’t see anything like the mid-south did, but it’s worth keeping an eye on as the storm march eastward today. Once out of the area, look for seasonal temperatures and and more winter feeling weather to make a return by the weekend. Even Thursday we’re looking at highs some 20 degrees cooler than today.
