Both the Lord Botetourt and James River football teams head down I-81 tonight for the second game of the season. The Cavaliers play at Salem at 7:30; the Knights continue on to Glenvar for a 7 p.m. start.
Weather journalist Kevin Myatt offers this forecast:
This may well be the warmest night of the football season. Afternoon highs could reach low 90s in Roanoke Valley and well into 80s in the New River Valley, with temperatures hanging in the 80s at kickoff most places and only slowly falling into the 70s. Can’t rule out a few isolated showers and storms, but it looks like most of that will wait until some of Isaac’s remnants can make it our way late in the weekend – perhaps raining on Virginia Tech’s opener Monday night.
