tempatures outside have begun to heat
up and as they weather goes, hopefully
the Salem Avalanche's bats will follow
suit. A good indication was last night
as the Avs scored 11 runs including a 6
run third in route to a shutout
victory. And as evidence by last
night, hitting can be contagious at
least for one night in the Salem

This month brings warmer days,
and usually a good helping of rain.
Meteorologist Jay Webb has the details
in your May Almanac.

RUNS=1:03 (END SOT)



OQ=Meteorologist Jay Webb < (END SOT) enjoy some early spring sunshine and


warm temperatures. That's just a
sampling of what May offers.

++++++++++

Average highs warm to the low and mid
70s this month, in fact, close to 80 in
Danville. Low temperatures can still be
crisp in May, averaging in the mid 40s
for Blacksburg, and in the low 50s
elsewhere.

++++++++++

SU: Last May was dry. Roanoke only

recorded around an inch of rain, but
the typical month of May is much
wetter.

++++++++++

From Roanoke, to Lynchburg, Danville
and Blacksburg, showers add-up to
around 4-inches.

++++++++++

SU: Don't forget - Mother's Day is May
10th. If you buy mom a flower, drop a
little knowledge and tell her May's
Full Moon is called the "Flower Moon" -
this is because flowers are abundant
this time of year. The full moon is
tomorrow at 6:09a.m.

++++++++++

Also this month, the Cresent moon will
be next to bright Venus on the 19th 45
minutes after sunset. The Roanoke
Valley Astronomical Society says this
will be a pretty sight. Also this
month, the planets Venus and Jupiter
will be bright in the sky.

++++++++++

Enjoy the warmer air and all the beauty
that comes in May. I'm SkyTracker7
