If the talking heads who attempt — and often fail — to accurately forecast the ever-changing weather around here are right we’re in for triple-digit heat by the weekend.


Dire predictions of hot, hot and more hot dominate all of the forecasts for Southwestern Virginia.

Starting Thursday, I’m headed for FloydFest and, with luck, the temperatures up on the Parkway will be a little cooler. The Levon Helm band is headlining this year and that makes braving hot temperatures more than worth the effort, along with the expected mix of regional and national music acts.

Bring plenty of sunscreen.
