<< Good evening, I'm Meteorologist
Robin Reed in the SkyTracker 7 Forecast
Center. The high temperature today in
Roanoke was 79 and the low was 56.
Locally tonight, expect increasing
cloudiness with mild low temperatures
around the upper 50s. Winds will be
light and variable. Thursday calls for
a few hit or miss showers, with a
better chance of rain arriving Friday.


We'll clear things out in time for the
weekend - great news if you're a race
fan! The national analysis shows
strong to severe storms in the central
Untied States. There were many tornado
watches issued for that part of the
country today. Some areas of Oklahoma
picked up nearly 2.50" of rain
Wednesday. That's rain we'd love to
get around here, and by Friday that
moisture will be over Virginia - but
amounts won't bust our current drought!
Right now, Thursday and Friday call
for mostly cloudy skies with scattered
showers. The best chance of rain, even
a few thunderstorms, will be Friday.
Behind the front, the forecast calls
for clearing skies by the weekend with
little drop-off in temperatures. Near
70 Thursday, near 80 Friday, then 75-80
Saturday through Wednesday with morning
lows in the mid 50s. Get the latest
weather forecast and radar imagery

Besides that he had little to say,
Stiles kept his head bowed with his
long hair covering his face...


His court appointed lawyer waived a
reading of the 23 charges including
sexual abuse of a minor and use of a
minor in producing pornography.


He's also facing charges for a
previous sexual assault.


If he's convicted he will most likely
spend the rest of his life in prison...
