HIDE Special Weather Statement issued January 19 at 10:45PM EST by NWS Blacksburg
...Patchy black ice possible overnight...
Warmer temperatures prompted plenty of snow melt during the day
Friday. Any remaining water from the melting along roadways,
sidewalks, and parking lots will refreeze overnight as
temperatures fall into the 20s.
Travelers are urged to continue to use caution overnight. A
surface that looks wet may actually be ice.
June places Mars and Saturn along the arc of the ecliptic during the early evening. Saturn is always a fine view in a small telescope and even the smallest will show some of the rings and perhaps a few of its moons. Saturn has more moons visible in a modest (4-8 inch diameter) telescope that Jupiter but they are fainter. Jupiter is lost in the west now until we catch it in the dawn sky in a few months.
