Nelson: Wintergreen : December Begins With Rain Down Below Ice Up Top

[ 0 ] December 1, 2019 |

Thanks to Scott Folsom for the photo : A cold rain was falling early Sunday morning down in the valley, but up top in the higher elevations ice was forming as temperatures hovered around the freezing mark. December 1, 2019

December started off with a cold rain for most people across the Blue Ridge, but if you are in the higher elevations ice has been forming on exposed surfaces like trees and railings. Scott Folsom sent us this photo Sunday morning. He tells us it’s, “Devils Knob near Summit Lane at 08:45.” Devils Knob is anywhere from 3200′ to nearly 4000′ depending on the location up there.

Our BRL-Nature Foundation At Wintergreen Station was showing just above freezing at 9:50 Sunday morning. Others nearby like this one at Wintergarden were holding right at freezing.

A Special Weather Statement issued by the NWS makes mention of possible patchy ice throughout the morning before temps rise above freezing.
