A warmer, wet weekend for fun, music and games

Young lady juggles multiple smartphones to take selfies of her and her friends.

If you consider Thursday as part of the upcoming weekend, it is forecast as the warmest day of this second weekend of February.

The National Weather Service office in Blacksburg foresees a high of 61 Thursday with an overnight low of 48 degrees early Friday, then down to Friday night. But a frigid weekend gives way to water temperatures next week with highs in the upper 50s in Floyd County and into the 60s elsewhere.

Floyd County High School hopes to get its twice-delayed winter homecoming in this winter homecoming in on Friday night during a boys basketball match against Bassett.  The evening begins at 5:30 p.m. with the varsity match scheduled for 7.

Friday also brings the Friday Night Jamboree at the Country Store, along with music at Buffalo Mountain Brewery, Dogtown, Wildwood Farms General Store, Pine Tavern and other locations.

Selected events below provided by the Floyd Tourism Office. For details, please check their website.

Have fun and let’s be careful out htere.
