CK/TITAN RADAR ANALYSIS AND MORE



<< Good evening, I'm Meteorologist
Robin Reed in the SkyTracker7 Forecast
Center. As a cold front passes through
this evening, skies will slowly clear,
winds will increase and temperatures
will tumble. Winds in the higher
elevations will be gusty at times
(35mph) with lighter winds in the
valleys (20-25mph). The mountains may
see some light snow showers, but
nothing to brag about, as amounts will
be light. Temperatures will fall


tonight as a result of clear skies and
cold air advection tonight with lows in
the 20s. Skies become mostly sunny
Thursday and a bit warmer too with
highs near 50. A second front and low
pressure system will usher in another
chance of rain/snow showers Sunday
along with colder air. A few rain/snow
showers may continue into President's
Day Monday before high pressure takes
control and clears things out later in
the day. Get the latest weather
forecast and radar imagery anytime on
our website, wdbj7.com>>

Cougars vs. Bruins It was seniors' night in :00 Blackbsurg as Tyler Holmes and the rest
of Bruins' senior players and
cheerleaders were recognized along with
their parents in the pregame ceremony.


Blacksburg would let one of those
seniors get the party started as Greg
Keys squares up nicely and hits the
three pointer from just to the right of
the circle.


But Pulaski is perhaps the most
athletic team eight men deep in the
region and they will not back down from
a challenge. Watch the Cougars get it
inside to Travis Cox - who makes an a
solid power move on the block for the
bucket off Ryan Adams' assist. *CG final Pulaski Co.

71 Later Adams would take matters Blacksburg into his own hand and slice inside the 58 defense. Pulaski beats Blacksburg
71-to-58 to force a special playoff
game in the River Ridge for that
automatic regional berth.

Speed Rookie Jacques Villeneuve - the
former Formula One champ - got
introduced to the outside wall this
afternoon - messing up his Toyota.


The Busch brothers also had a few
exciting moments as Kurt gets losses in
the Miller LIte Dodge and drifts up to
the outside wall before saving it.


Kyle also almost lost his Gibbs'
Toyota down low - but he also kept the
M&Ms Camry from getting scraped up.


The Hendrick cars have the
biggest worries. All four of them
started losing engines after just a few
laps of practice. As a result,
Earnhardt, Johnson, Gordon and Mears
will all be at the back of the field
for tomorrow's races.

The success of the Boys team this

The Girls rise to the top of the

on the field and in the eyes of many -
the school's ability to keep coach

JMU Matthews had interviewed at South :00 Alabama this week, and the school was
set to offer Matthews the reins of its
football program in Mobile.


But this morning the 54-year-old
Matthews, who has coached the Dukes


since 1999, told his players that he
had decided to stay in Harrisonburg.


Matthews is 64-and 44 during his
JMU tenure and he led the school to the
2004 Division I-AA national
championship.


James Madison was 8 and 4 this
