:00 Every indication is that it will
be VCU skipper and former Florida
assistant Anthony Grant. Grant helped
the Rams win 28 games this season
including an opening round upset of
Duke in the NCAA's. He also recruited
Joakim Noah, Cory Brewer, Taurean

Green, and Al Horoford for the Gators.
Grant is supposed to meet with Florida

OQ=METEOROLOGIST, JAY WEBB. < (END SOT) almost halfway through the year - just


about summertime - and time for your
June Almanac.++++++++++

Highs are getting toasty; averaging in
the 80s for Roanoke, Danville and
Lynchburg. Blacksburg's average high is
in the upper 70s.

++++++++++


With more moisture in the air, it's
harder to cool at night in June. Lows
are usually mild - near 60.

++++++++++

SU: Showers and thunderstorms are
common this month during the heating of
the afternoon.

++++++++++

3.50" to about 4.00" of rain usually
adds up across the area over the next
30 days.

++++++++++

The Roanoke Valley Astronomical Society
reports Venus will be brilliant in the
western sky all month 30 minutes after
sunset until 11:00p.m.

++++++++++

And don't forget summer begins June 21
at 2:11pm. The summer solstice is the
longest day of the year.

++++++++++

Also, June's Full Moon is called the
Strawberry Moon. It'll be June 30th at
9:49a.m.

++++++++++

SU: Finally, Hurricane season started
today. It lasts until November 30th.

++++++++++

Most, if any, tropical activity this

early in the season is confined to the
shallow, warm waters of the Caribbean
and Gulf of Mexico.

++++++++++

SU: The SkyTracker7 weather team will
continue to watch the tropics over the
next several months, as we'll as the
sky's over your hometown. I'm
SkyTracker 7 Meteorologist Jay Webb.>>
