Nelson County, Virginia
After readings touching 80° yesterday, much cooler temps are on the way for the coming week as September winds up and October begins on Thursday. A brief thundershower Monday dropped .04 inches of rain here at our flagship NCL-Nelson County Life Weatheret Station in the Rockfish Valley, while NCL-Wintergreen Nature Foundation up at 3500 feet on Devil’s Knob got exactly 1/4 of an inch of rain. The mountain topped out at 69° yesterday at 1:30 PM, but quickly began dropping after a cold front accompanied by the fast moving thundershower rolled through. Paul Purpura grabbed the beautiful shot above from one of the slopes over at Wintergreen Resort. Believe it or not, it won’t be much longer before those slopes will be covered in snow!

The remainder of the week looks generally sunny with fall like temperatures. Some 30’s for overnight lows will even be felt by folks living up on the mountains as fall begins to take hold across Central Virginia. The best chances for rain move back in by next weekend.
