Thanks to Jeff Stone over at Wintergreen Winery for today’s weather photo. This is another really great sunset, think this one is at Three Ridges. We’ve been having some spectacular ones lately, and appreciate Jeff sending this one our way!

The weather over the weekend was pretty much as forecast, warm and dry with no rain.

Today we’ll have chances for isolated afternoon thunderstorms as a cold front works through the area, passing to our south, stalling, then returning as a warm front later in the week. This keeps chances for thunderstorms in the forecast off and on starting Wednesday. If remnants of Fay make her way here, that will interact with the front giving us better chances for much needed rain.

We also continue to watch two other tropical disturbances out in the Atlantic for possible impact on U.S. weather by next weekend.

Temperatures remain pleasant in the upper 70’s to lower 80’s after today’s readings in the 90’s.
