<< Good evening, I'm meteorologist
Robin Reed in the SkyTracker7 Forecast
Center. A cold front will cross the
region tonight and eventually be
replaced by an area of high pressure
Wednesday. This will bring at least one
day of sunshine. Look for mostly
cloudy skies tonight, and perhaps a few
showers with lows in the mid 40s.
Drier air will move in Wednesday
pushing shower chances south of the
area for a day. Despite the sunshine,
highs will actually be a touch cooler,
topping out in the low 60s. A cold air
wedge, similar to the one this past
weekend, will begin to develop
Wednesday night. Easterly low-level
moisture and cold air in place may mean


light rain and even some sleet
Wednesday night and Thursday morning.
Highs will only reach the low 40s.
With a front lingering near, scattered
rain is likely on Friday with highs in
the mid 60s. Saturday also features a
50% chance of showers as a front passes
through. Drier air begins to arrive
behind the front Sunday. This means
clearing skies and abundant afternoon
sunshine. Highs will remain in the 60s.

and the King Richard Petty.


For just the second time since
1972, Petty Enterprises is in need of a
sponsor.


General Mills, the main sponsor
of the number 43 Dodge, is leaving
Petty after this season and heading to
Richard Childress racing.


Childress is starting a fourth
team in 2009 with the number 33 on the
side of the car.


There also has been speculation
that Petty would also lose driver Bobby
Labonte, but Petty Enterprises says it
is close to locking up Labonte in a
lifetime contract.

Expect a noticeable increase in
temperatures the next several weeks.


Average highs are near 70 in Roanoke,
Lynchburg and Danville. Blacksburg
approaches the mid 60s.



JAY SU: Even though dry spring air can
warm nicely, it can cool quickly.



Overnight lows still usually tank to
the lower 40s; and 30s are still common
across the New River Valley.



JAY SU: Numerous showers are also a
classic signature of spring.



The entire area averages around 3.50
inches of rain this month, and this is
the last month we record snow until
fall. Blacksburg usually gets the most,
around an inch.



JAY SU: Our next full moon is still
several weeks away.



Look for the Full Pink Moon on April
20th at 6:25a.m. The Roanoke Valley
Astronomical Society reports now
through April 4th is National Dark Sky

prompt awareness of our dark skies.
