Headlines over the next couple of days.

ROANOKE, Va. – Saturday’s forecast calls for temperatures in the upper 80s for most of us, some will reach 90°. Partly cloudy skies are expected to build in through the course of the day. We aren’t expecting any rain Saturday, however, there is a very low chance to see a stray pop up shower that may last a few minutes later on Saturday afternoon.

Today will be nice. Perhaps a chance to get outdoors.
