Kudos to Ann Strober once again. Ann sent in this really nice picture of the sun on the clouds above Nellysford creating some great colors up above. Ann always sends in nice weather pics and we appreciate ya’ Ann!

With such clean and clear air lately we’ve been able to see lots of really nice cloud formations up above and lots of star gazing at night! We’ll have another mostly sunny day today with a chance of isolated thunderstorms, mainly west, and temperatures pleasant in the low & mid 80’s. But we’ll have a return to southerly winds so the humidity will tick up ever so slightly.

By tomorrow that southerly flow help to increase clouds a tad, but little in the way of rain. Though we have a shot at the afternoon garden variety storms dues to the increased humidity, nothing organized looks to be headed our way until early next week.

We continue to watch activity brewing out in the Atlantic.You can view more by clicking here. We will add more updates as this develops and / or if it moves closer to the East Coast interests.
