Thanks to Ann Strober of Nellysford for the really peaceful looking shot up above. She recently caught the fog settling over the Rockfish Valley in Nellysford. As always Ann, we appreciate your nice pics!
After a hot and sticky weekend, temperatures finally cooled a bit on Monday as a front worked through the area. Today should have been a mostly sunny day, but some stubborn moisture from the SE may wedge in here banking up against the mountains keeping a low cloud deck in place, at least for part of the day. I think this is more a problem south in areas around Amherst and Lynchburg, but the mountains can catch that moisture and hold it in place, so we’ll have to see how the day plays out. Any light showers will certainly be more likely south.

With the expected cloud cover in place it will be a cool day with temperatures only nearing 70° for an afternoon high, a big contrast to the mid 90’s from the weekend. If we do get any showers at all the better time would be in the afternoon.
The remainder of the week looks generally dry and pleasant.
Number 92 is still hanging on out in the Atlantic, but any real development is not expected at this time.
Have a great Tuesday!
