Central Virginia Blue Ridge
High winds coupled with a couple of inches of rain or, more in some locations, has setup the scenario for power outages. As of 11:15 AM Friday morning just under 4000 customers were reported without power via CVEC.
Additional outages were being reported on adjacent systems.
On the mountain at Wintergreen a 38 MPH wind gust has already been measured with temps already in the single digits. That’s producing wind chills well below zero.
Down below our BRL-Maple Brook Farm station had recorded a 30 MPH wind gust as of 11:20 AM.
Winds will continue for much of the day but will eventually ease up some overnight into the weekend. But temps remain extremely cold until roughly Tuesday when we break freezing.
