What’s left of Hurricane Isaac has been hanging around our neck of the woods for days now. While Thursday brings an end to the tropical moisture over our area, Wednesday was a different story. Heavy, tropical, pounding rains caused some flooding in Greenfield just north of Nellysford. Here at NCL our own weather station showed 2.65″ of rain. Most of that fell within a 30-45 minute period.

Just a mile east along Greenfield Road, Idlebrink Farm’s gauge showed a whopping 4.03 inches of rain in under an hour.

Though Thursday still has a chance for an isolated thunderstorm in the afternoon, we should see plenty of sunshine, and much hotter temps. By the weekend rain is back in the forecast followed by pre-fall like temps!
