March The off- leash dog park opened in
March to rave reviews.


The city found a lot of dogs used
it for the first few weeks and then
usage dropped dramatically.


That's because dogs had to be
under voice command at all times and
many found that difficult since there's
no fence.


So the city is teaming up with a
local group called Newvaconnects to
build a fence.


The hope is to have it in place
by next spring.

<< Good morning, I'm Meteorologist Leo

Center. Mostly cloudy today with
scattered showers. The winds will also
increase as we head through the day.
The best chance of rain will be in the
western mountains. The next weather
system will be coming from the Plains
states. An area of low pressure will be
guided by a cold front just to the
west. The two will remain close enough
that we'll have cloudy skies and
occasional showers in the forecast over
the next few days. The front is
scheduled to pass south of Virginia on
Wednesday, this would mean clouds and
showers through the end of the week.
Temperatures will also respond to the
clouds and showers, with highs in the

inconsistent about the weekend, but it

WEATHER BUG


<< Good morning, I'm Meteorologist Leo
Hirsbrunner in the SkyTracker7 Forecast
Center. Mostly cloudy today with
scattered showers. The winds will also
increase as we head through the day.
The best chance of rain will be in the
western mountains. The next weather
system will be coming from the Plains
states. An area of low pressure will be
guided by a cold front just to the
west. The two will remain close enough
that we'll have cloudy skies and
occasional showers in the forecast over
the next few days. The front is


scheduled to pass south of Virginia on
Wednesday, this would mean clouds and
showers through the end of the week.
Temperatures will also respond to the
clouds and showers, with highs in the
70s, then fall into the 60s for the
remainder of the week. Models are still
inconsistent about the weekend, but it
appears another front will approach the
region bringing showers on Saturday and
drier, cooler air on Sunday. Get the
latest weather forecast and radar
imagery anytime on our website,
