An initial concern of absbestos
burning turned out to NOT be a threat.

<< Good evening, I'm chief
meteorologist Robin Reed in the
SkyTracker7 Forecast Center.
Certainly hope you didn't let the
sunshine fool you today, as
temperatures were a good 15 to 20


degrees colder than normal. Mountain
snow showers have all but tapered off,
leaving some of the higher elevations
with nearly a foot of natural snow
(great Skiing). Skies remain partly
cloudy with another night of bitterly
cold temperatures as lows tumble to the
low 20s. Winds will be light to start,
then turn calm overnight. We do get a
bit warmer Friday. However, we'll also
get a bit wet at times as a front
pushes through during the late
afternoon and early evening.
Temperatures ahead of the front will
climb to around 50 degrees, with light
showers coming in after 3pm. Sunshine
returns over the weekend, with
seasonable highs in the 40s Saturday
and 50s Sunday. Saturday does look a
little breezy to start, with winds
gusting as high as 35mph. A surge of
warmer air will arrive next Monday,
driving temperatures to around 60.
THURSDAY NIGHT: Partly cloudy. Low: 23
FRIDAY: Clouds increase, late afternoon
showers. High: 48 FRIDAY NIGHT: Partly

Crotts played High School
basketball at Glenvar for Joe Davis and
was able to return to his alma mater as
an assistant under Art Lawrence in 1994
and helped the Highlanders win a state
title after a head coaching stint at
Cave Spring.


Being able to coach the
Highlanders has been a dream come true
for Crotts who was named the Head Coach
at Glenvar in April of 1999 when
Lawerence stepped down.
