Watching the weather

Jimmy worked hard and came up with a great route. It takes us from Lynchburg, Virginia into DC, from rolling hills into the Potomac Valley. That means two weather forecast zones worked by the National Weather Service. I've been checking out both: one from Blacksburg, the other from DC/Baltimore. And they're painting two very different pictures. My coworker Chris tells me he prefers the zone forecasts from the NWS versus the "point & click" linked earlier. The only rub is you have to know the weather forecast office's gobbledygook identifier- or just click until you find what you're looking for. Here's some help: zone forecast for Blacksburg and the zone forecast for DC.

Notice how different the zone forecasts are from the "point & click?" Sounds like this weekend could get interesting..
