More clouds than sun can be expected again today. Cloudy skies mean cool afternoon temperatures. Yesterday, we only made it up to 74 degrees. That was the coldest high temperature recorded on that date.

In fact, check out our weather bug camera in Wintergreen, VA. There's a hint! :)

The cloud deck not quite as thick today and any sun will help our temperatures stay a little warmer with a gradual warming trend the rest of the week. Unfortunately we can't kick the cold front through here soon enough. It will linger to our west into the weekend now. The timing of it's passage is still uncertain, but looks like it will take its sweet time until late in the weekend. We'll continue to fine tune the weekend forecast as it gets closer.
