LISTEN TO OUR AUDIO FORECAST AND TODAY’S FEATURED MUSIC ARTIST, ROBIN WYNN
This week we continue our look and listen of area music artists. Through the weekend we’ll be hearing the music of Robin Wynn. You’ve seen and heard Robin at many of the wine events here in Nelson or over at Rapunzel’s. This week you can hear her right here. Scroll to the bottom of today’s weathercast for more on Robin and be sure to listen to her music at the end of today’s weather.
Wednesday’s High / Low at NCL-Nelson County Life Magazine in the Rockfish Valley : 45Â°/31Â° – 0.16″ Rainfall
Wednesday’s High / Low at NCL-Wintergreen Nature Foundation on Devil’s Knob @ Wintergreen Mountain : 49Â°/18Â° – 0.69″ Rainfall
If you’re sick of yucky weather, hang on, we have improving conditions for the next couple of days! First, thanks to Heidi Crandall of Roseland for today’s weather photo. This is just below Horseshoe Mountain at Roseland. That’s also where our NCL-Hatcreek Farm Weathernet station lives. Heidi takes care of that station for us which reports from that end of the county. Appreciate Heidi sending that photo in to us.
That’s pretty much what it looked like for the first half of the day Wednesday. Freezing temps allowed the rain that fell overnight to coat everything on contact. It was toward midday before we finally got warm enough to begin a thaw. Ironically, it was warmer on the mountain than it was in the valley thanks to a temperature inversion. By dark yesterday we saw some light snow falling across the area with gusty NW winds.
Thursday promises to be a much nicer day as sunshine works in, but it will still feel pretty chilly with breezy winds blowing from the NW in the morning gusting as high as 30 MPH. By afternoon the winds die down a bit and become more southerly setting up a pretty nice Friday with highs in the mid 50’s in the valley. The holiday weekend looks dry until Sunday afternoon and evening when rain moves back in.

Whether playing solo, or accompanied by her six-piece band, Robin Wynnâ€™s shows are marked with high energy and good spirits, with her distinctive, smooth-like-honey/sharp-as-a-tack vocals cresting the wave. With her ear for hooks, Robin writes music you swear youâ€™ve heard before, yet is always unique and fresh, often drawing comparisons to Bonnie Raitt and Lucinda Williams at her most â€œAmericana,â€ Kim Gordon (Sonic Youth) and Liz Phair at her rockingest.
A hard-working bunch of players, Robin and her band performed over a hundred shows up and down the east coast in 2006, gathering enthusiasts at every stop. Bandmates include Lea Calvani (Dirty Dishes) on percussion and vocals, John Allietta (Thrum, Naked Puritans) on drums, Clayton Avent (Six Day Bender) on cello and guitar, Blake Wheeler (Bleak, Goldenhour) on bass and vocals, and Mark Goldstein on guitar, keyboards, and vocals.
Spring 2007 marks the release of Robin Wynnâ€™s latest studio achievement â€œA Few Dusty Miles,â€ a full-length CD of eleven new songs which includes such favorites from her recent tour dates as the sultry ballad â€œBottle,â€ the quirky half-time rag â€œSweet Sally,â€ and â€œSoldier,â€ an instant pop classic that will stay in your head for days â€“ and is also available to listen on her page at www.myspace.com/robinwynn
