The cut is the seventh one since

< Reed in the SkyTracker7 Forecast
Center. Clear skies will prevail
Wednesday evening and overnight.
Overall, it will be pleasant with light


wind and temperatures that won't be as
cold as last night. Lows are forecast
in the low to mid 40s. High pressure
will dominate the late week forecast.
Expect plenty of sunshine Thursday and
Friday with just a few passing clouds
as a warm front lifts to our north.
With the front north of us, we'll be in
the warm sector of air; and with
southerly breezes, expect temperatures
to respond! Highs Thursday are
forecast in the mid 70s - with low 80s
by Friday. Our next chance of rain
arrives this weekend. Models are
indicating a cold front pushing across
Virginia late Saturday into Sunday.
This may mean showers and a chance of
thunderstorms, but it doesn't look like
an event that will make us soggy all
weekend. The current thinking is that
Saturday will start dry, and likely
stay that way until sometime in the mid
afternoon. Then expect scattered
showers and storms as the front
presses to the east Saturday night,
showers will come to an end. If there's
a stray shower early Sunday, it will
leave, making way for increasing
sunshine for the rest of the day.


Temperatures won't be sharply affected
by the boundary. Highs Saturday are
forecast around the mid 70s. Lower 70s
are slated Sunday. The first two or
three days of next week look partly
sunny, with highs near 70. WEDNESDAY
NIGHT: Mostly clear. Not as cool. Low:
44 THURSDAY: Sunny. Warm breezes.
High: 76 For weather anytime turn to

Super Bowl, signed the free agent
safety to give them defensive depth and
veteran leadership.


Prioleau who is entering his 10th
season in the NFL, spent the last three
years with the Redskins. He played 15
games in 2007, starting four and
finishing with 38 tackles.


Prioleau, who lives in Radford in

has played in 113 NFL games with San
Francisco, Buffalo and Washington. He
will be reunited with former Redskins

Championship, and Chip Sullivan is


right in the middle of them, taking a
break from his duties as a club pro to
tee it up in his 4th Tour event of the
season.


CHIP SULLIVAN/ASHLEY PLANTATION PRO:


Part of the experience includes driving
a brand new Mercedes courtesy car for
the week. The Quail Hollow layout is
equally first class, yet extremely
challenging.


CHIP:


Chip will have his father-in-law and
Deputy Superintendent of Roanoke County
Schools, Tom Hall, on the bag as caddie
this week as he has for more than 50
PGA events. And the duo will have a
large contingent of folks from
Botetourt County making the three hour
drive to cheer them on.


CHIP:


Sullivan and Hall aren't the only
ones who will have support from the
Roanoke Valley in Charlotte. Chip hit
balls this week next to Luke Donald, a
native of England who just happens to
have an aunt and a cousin in Roanoke.


LUKE DONALD/Five Top 25 Finishes This
Season:


Chip has two more Tour events to play


in following the Wachovia, including
the Reno-Tahoe Open this summer,
following a May trip to Japan for the
Japanese PGA Championship.
