I chose not to chase today given that the best setup for doing so is well east of where I would consider going. But…I was out and about the Roanoke valley this morning and got to experience the cold frontal passage. Here’s what it looked like ~10:40 a.m. looking southwestward from the Hollins vicinity:

FROPA was very obvious as the wind suddenly swapped around from southerly to northwesterly and the thermometer plunged while I was outside my vehicle snapping photos. Now the question is how long the current pattern will take to reset and provide the next chasing opportunity. It may be a couple of weeks from now which would mean April is pretty much over for Virginia chasing.
