Nellysford
Nelson County, Virginia

The final day of summer didn’t leave without putting up a big fight! Isolated severe thunderstorms moved through the area late Wednesday afternoon. Our NCL Devils Backbone Weather Station @ 664 & 151 recorded a 46 MPH wind gust as the storms moved through. That rain gauge picked up just over a half inch of rain at .53″ after an afternoon high of 92°.

Though the north end of the tents were totally destroyed, most of the other tents toward Wintergreen Real Estate were not harmed.

Up on the mountain at our NCL-Wintergreen Nature Foundation Weather Station, they picked up just over 1/3 of an inch of rain at .37″ with an afternoon high of 81°. Back in the valley here at NCL in Greenfield, our station only picked up a meager .08″ of rain after a blazing afternoon high of 96° reached at 2:49 PM.

The first day of fall will start off more like mid-July with afternoon highs once again in the low and mid 90’s. By Saturday night our weather patterns will finally change with cooler temps arriving by Sunday and decent chances for rain from Sunday through next Wednesday. Afternoon valley highs will be in the low and mid 70’s much of next week. Temps in the mountains will be in the 60’s for daytime highs and 40’s overnight.

Enjoy your first, but hot, full day of fall!

  1. @ Stan, So who would you like to pay for this permanent structure, maybe you could help fund it. The site is fine for a 5-6 month farmers market. Also there is a bathroom there, just not an indoor one. I really enjoy the farmers market as it is.
