Ultra Cold Weather Arrives Across The Blue Ridge

Blue Ridge Life™2013 : A comparison of temperatures early Tuesday morning, January 22, 2013 around sunrise. On the left a very cold 5° from our BRL Weather Station at The Wintergreen Nature Foundation at 3500 feet. On the right a milder 20° here at BRL Hdq in the Rockfish Valley of Nelson County, VA

Central Virginia Blue Ridge
As Tommy talked about in his weather cast for Tuesday, the brutally cold temps have arrived across the Blue Ridge. Single digit lows were common Tuesday morning along the Blue Ridge Parkway and Skyline Drive, with wind chills around 10 below 0 in the higher elevations. In the valley portions of the area both east and west of the BRP and Skyline teens to near 20° were common readings as people awoke on Tuesday morning.

Temps Tuesday won’t break freezing and Tuesday night’s lows will be even colder.

A chance for wintry precip is likely by late Thursday night into Friday.
