Chilly stuff out there today...I don't think we will make it out of the 50s. Cold core upper level low sagging down across our area now. There are some extremely cold temperatures aloft associated with that upper low...cold enough to even produce a little snow up at about 3000' of elevation in Virginia. No snow here, but a sure sign of just hoe potent that upper low is.

It is also quite cold up at Grandfather Mountain....up at the Swinging Bridge Visitor Center, it is a chilly 34 degrees as I am typing this.

This shot of cold air will really kick fall foliage season into full gear. It appears the leaves are changing at least a week ahead of when they did last year, so I fully expect most mountain locations to see their peak of fall color season occur within the next two to maybe three weeks. If you plan to head up there to view the colors, don't miss it. I would plan to go within the next couple of weeks if you could.

Be sure and check out the picture near Grandfather Mountain below.

Everyone have a great day. This weather makes me want to make some of my world-famous chili. I think that just might be what we have for supper today!
