Day: February 9, 2017

Weather: Downed trees, power outages

The National Weather Service for Blacksburg/Roanoke originally forecast an ultra-frigid Thursday with a high of 18 or so with overnight lows down close to zero.

But the thermometer showed 32 on our back porch at 7 a.m. and while it will drop some along with the blustery wind, it is now not expected to go much lower during the daylight hours and should hover around the freezing mark until late afternoon when it starts a downward trend into the high teens overnight before climbing back up into the 40s by Friday afternoon, then 61 on Saturday and 68 on Sunday.
