Impressive Temperature Inversion Occurring Across Nelson

This is a screen shot taken of our two NCL Weathernet Stations just after 5AM Friday morning. Our station at 3500' on Devils Knob is 14° warmer than the one here in the Rockfish Valley.

Nelson County, Valley

Though not a totally rare occurrence here in Nelson, it’s neat to see when it happens. Over the past day or so a temperature inversion has set up over the area. This means the temperatures are increasing as you go up in elevation. The exact opposite of what you’d normally see. When the screen shot was taken Friday morning (12.31.10) just after 5AM the temperature difference was 14° warmer at our NCL Wintergreen Nature Foundation site at 3500′ vs our Nelson County Life Magazine Office here in Greenfield about 5 miles north of Nellysford.

Not to worry about the snow in the mountains, ski conditions are perfect with a tremendous base! This will actually make for a perfect day to be on the slopes!
