But the Sun is Shining Here!

Though not unique to Virginia, did you know that for every 1000 feet of elevation gain, as a rule, the temperature drops 6 degrees F? That means on an April day in Virginia, it could be 70 degrees in Hampton Roads, but ice, snow and a temperature of around 36 degrees could be happening on Virginia's highest peak, Mt. Rogers (elevation of 5, 729 feet).
