CK/TITAN RADAR ANALYSIS AND MORE



<< Good evening, I'm Meteorologist
Robin Reed in the SkyTracker7 Forecast
Center. The high temperature today in
Roanoke was 80 and the low was 49.High
pressure will weaken and move east


Wednesday. This will allow mid and high
clouds to spill into the area.. A
disturbance will move overhead Thursday
before a cold front pushes in by
Saturday. Shower chances will go up to
40-50% Thursday and Friday. While not
everyone will get wet, it's the best
chance of showers we've have in quite a
while. We need it too! It would take 12
to 15 inches of rain to get us out of
drought status. Temperatures will
remain a bit above normal (upper 70s to
near 80) through the weekend. Right
now, it appears sunshine will return
for both Saturday and Sunday.
Virginia's Fall Wildfire Season began
October 15 and runs through November.
TUESDAY NIGHT: Increasing clouds. Low:
56...WEDNESDAY: Partly sunny. High:
79...WEDNESDAY NIGHT: Mostly cloudy.
Low: 59...

VO-NAT The House Judiciary committee is


holding hearings in the case of six
black teenagers in Louisisana charged
with beating of a white schoolmate.


The incident happened after white
students put nooses in a tree at Jena
high school last year.


Now many folks are saying the
black students were treated unfairly by
the justice system because the white
students weren't charged.


Prosecutors say they didn't
prosecute the white students because
they're juveniles.

VO-NAT Doctors can now determine with 96


percent accuracy if someone is
predisposed to type one diabetes.


Before the breakthrough, doctors
looked for three markers in the blood
-- now they know to look for a fourth
antibody -- making the results much
more reliable.


Doctors are also hoping that the
results will eventually start coming
back within seconds -- instead of the

The Folgers' Chevrolet would
eventually finish third in the points
that season behind Darrell Waltrip and

Amazingly, its been 20 years

after contracted the HIV virus.
