Nelson County, Virginia
No question we have had some back and forth weather over the past several days, but sure signs of spring are in the air. The 87° high on Monday in the valley with a 74° high in the mountains at Wintergreen Resort, is a proof of warmer days ahead. NCL Mountain Photographer, Paul Purpura, grabbed a few shots over the weekend of the clues to real spring weather.

Though we’ll see slightly cooler temps mid week, we’ll be back in the 70’s and 80’s by week’s end!
