Rain May End With Some Light Snow Thursday Morning

Some light snow is possible Thursday morning as temps plummet behind a cold front.

Nelson County, Virginia
The past several days have been very mild, but that’s about to come to an abrupt halt for the next day or so before becoming milder by the second half of the weekend. There may even be light snow Thursday morning as temps begin diving, only reaching the mid 40’s for highs in the valley and the upper 30’s at Wintergreen.

Here at NCL we picked up just under 3/4 of an inch of rain by late Wednesday night. Our Nelson Mag FB Friend Brian Lacy our in Massies Mill says he got about 1.23 inches of rain. Head up to Wintergreen and our gauge at the Wintergreen Nature Foundation showed about 1/2″ of rain Wednesday night.

Upper and lower clouds hover over the Rockfish Valley as seen from Wintergreen Resort late Wednesday. Crawford's Knob is visible in the lower left corner of the image.

As colder air works in Thursday morning with some moisture still in the area, light snow could break out, especially in the higher elevations of Nelson along the BRP. If we do see some, it won’t be much of anything, maybe a dusting to an inch.

Look for temps back in the 60’s by Sunday into early next week.
