<< Good evening, I'm meteorologist
Robin Reed in the SkyTracker7 Forecast
Center. Showers and a few
thunderstorms are possible as a strong
cold front sweeps across the region.
There's a slight risk of strong to


severe storms, with the biggest threat
being heavy rain and gusty winds. Most
of us should remain "storm-free", but
keep an eye to the sky. Temperatures
should remain steady in the mid 60s
with south winds 15-20mph. Some gusts
could exceed 30mph, especially in an
any storm which may develop.
WEDNESDAY NIGHT: Any storms end as the
front moves eastward. Showers will
continue with slow clearing by dawn.
Overnight lows will drop to near 40.
Behind the front, westerly breezes will
increase, gusting to around 40-50mph at
times in the higher elevations.
THURSDAY: Sunny and breezy. Winds will
relax by the end of the day, but most
of Wednesday will be highlighted by
northwesterly winds at 15-25mph with
gusts near 50mph. Afternoon highs are
forecast near 60. Thursday night will
be clear and chilly with lows in the
lower 30s. FRIDAY: The first full day
of spring will feature mostly sunny
with highs in the low and mid 60s.
Winds will be light from the southwest.
YOUR WEEKEND OUTLOOK: Saturday will
likely feature more clouds than
sunshine. Models are hinting at a


20-30% chance of a few light showers;
but most of the day we'll stay dry.
Highs are expected in the lower 60s.
Easter Sunday should bring no
weather-worries with mainly sunny
conditions; but it will be cooler in
the lower 50s! For weather anytime

has left many searching for their
shingles, and others completely
replacing their roof.

VO-NAT VO-NAT


So, instead of replacing your
roof with the older 3-tab shingle, you
might want to consider an architectural
shingle that has a wind rating of 110
miles per hour.


You'll want to call the roofing
company before you call the insurance
agent.


That way you'll be on the waiting


list and get the work done faster.

ESPN Classic Seth Greenberg and a number of :00 Tech donors bought 3000 tickets for
students to make sure they had a nice
crowd tonight and in reality they had
more than that - as just under 10
thousand turned out.


Those who made it inside the
Cassell got to see some smoking outside
shooting from A.D. Vassallo and Malcolm
Delaney.


Vassallo threw in a game high 27
points hitting 11 of 14 shots from the


field, while Delaney scored 13.


For A.D. the 27 points is a
season high.


Tech then took it inside in the

(END SOT) and the Hokies were thrilled to be in


the big Apple - posing in front of
Madison Square Garden as part of a star
studded New York Final four that
featured North Carolina, Alabama and
the Hokies title game opponent Notre.


Tech beat New Mexico, Fairfield
and Alabama by a total of four points
to make it to the title game.


Not surprisingly it was tight, as
well. Bobby Stevens hit this jumper
and drew a foul - and then made a free
throw with 43 seconds left to go in
overtime to make it a 91-to-90 game in
favor of Notre Dame.


The Irish had a chance to ice it,
but Gary Brokaw missed the free throw
and Digger Pheelps could only watch as
the Hokies called timeout with 12
seconds left in the game.


Ed Frazier inbounded to Bobby
Stevens who went one on one with Dwight
Clay. He managed to get off a shot but


it bounced off sharply to the right.
Stevens tracked it down and his follow
hit nothing but net at the buzzer

Stevens scored 7 points in the overtime
and 17 for the game as the Hokies won
the 1973 NIT title over Notre Dame
