Easter weekend 2018, beginning with Good Friday and the Easter Sunday, which this year is also April Fool’s Day.

A warmer and more pleasant weekend than most of the ones preceding during this topsy turvy winter in Floyd County and Southwestern Virginia.  The Spring snow storm that dropped up to 18 inches in and around Floyd last weekend is all but gone, replaced by soggy ground and mud.

Friday’s outlook of a high of 59 follow Thursday’s 70-plus high temperature and the low tonight brings memories of winter descending to freezing (32) before warming to 58 degrees Saturday and the annual Floyd County High School alumni basketball games at the new gym.

Sunday looks warm as well and cloudy as the forecasts predicts 58 degrees in the day after an overnight low of 45 degrees.

Enjoy the weekend as April descends and promises of Spring arrive.
