As Tommy mentioned might happen in his forecast, major pounding rains fell across the Central Virginia Blue Ridge area on Tuesday afternoon creating all sorts of problems. Many roads have been closed and some accidents have occurred.

Unfortuantely more rain is on the way this week, some heavy. Tommy covers that more in his weather, here later this evening.

At our BRL-Nature Foundation Station at Wintergreen gauge we showed just over 6" of rain by late Tuesday afternoon. The majority of the rain fell between noon and 5PM.

Down below our BRL-Trager Brothers station showed about half that amount. Just over 3".

Well….that was an adventure. Thankful that the roads were clear coming down from Wintergreen and down 151, but there…
