Devil’s Knob Mountain
Nelson County, Virginia
An area of thunderstorms moved into Nelson County Friday night causing spotty power outages in western parts of the county near the Blue Ridge Parkway around Wintergreen. NCL’s Mountain Photographer, Paul Purpura emailed us Friday night to say: “No lights at my house…And I paid my light bill!”
A bit higher over on Devil’s Knob, faithful web reader, John Taylor emailed in saying: “Sudden storm. Lightning and thunder. Power out on top of WG”
Scattered thunderstorms can be expected during the overnight hours with some storms nearing or at severe limits. The same story holds true for Saturday. By Sunday the atmosphere over Central Virginia begins to stabilize with more sunshine and cooler temperatures until mid week.
