It looks as though a wintry mix is possible over the next 24-48 hours as a scenario begins playing out beginning late Saturday night into Sunday.

Saturday was a nice day, but cooler that the mid 60’s that finished up the week on Friday.

After midnight Saturday night, look for a possible very light freezing rain drizzle to move into the area, especially west of the Blue Ridge Parkway. The freezing drizzle is possible early Sunday morning before turning to plain rain later in the day Sunday as temperatures warm up enough at the surface. This is not a major event and may not even develop. However, plain rain continues into Sunday night and Monday before the system pulls away. We’ll see some sunshine Monday afternoon, but the winds will become gusty.

With changes in the weather patterns for the upcoming week, it now looks relatively unsettled for the coming days with several chances for snow and / or rain toward the end of the week as a potent storm may develop by then.

You can check out and buy all of Robin’s latest CD releases here.

Whether playing solo, or accompanied by her six-piece band, Robin Wynn’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 you’ve heard before, yet is always unique and fresh, often drawing comparisons to Bonnie Raitt and Lucinda Williams at her most “Americana,” 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 Wynn’s latest studio achievement “A Few Dusty Miles,” a full-length CD of eleven new songs which includes such favorites from her recent tour dates as the sultry ballad “Bottle,” the quirky half-time rag “Sweet Sally,” and “Soldier,” an instant pop classic that will stay in your head for days – and is also available to listen on her page at


  1. Ceiling starting to lower at 10:15. Light fog now at the highest portions of the
    ski area — not dense enough to affect the skiing. Ceiling looks like it is at
    3,000′. Temp still 31 deg F. No apparent precip yet.

  2. I have no idea how the live Afton Mountain traffic cams show good visibility. We are completely socked in here at 3,300′. Less than 100′ visibility. Temp hasn’t moved from 31 degrees since 6 am. Light drizzle now.
