UPDATED, 5: 15 p.m.:
Most of the rain has gone north of Southwest Virginia today, and storms have developed mostly to the south and east. Radar does show a few showers and patches of rain that might move through, so rain gear would still be wise, but many games will probably get in dry tonight.
This is a revision from this morning’s update:
Looks like it’s going to rain on somebody’s (homecoming) parade — or at least a game.
Weather journalist Kevin Myatt has issued this updated forecast for tonight’s Hidden Valley homecoming game (Cave Spring has a bye this week):
Rain chances have increased for tonight. A cold front has not made as much progress eastward as earlier projected, and clusters of showers and storms from Kentucky will move through Southwest Virginia later today, possibly lingering into this evening. So definitely take those ponchos and umbrellas to high school football games.
As noted earlier, we’ll have photos from the game, rain or no rain, and our paparazzi photo crew will be at the dance on Saturday — or you can share yours at firstname.lastname@example.org, or use the “share” tool to upload 10 at a time.
