We’ve got the news on the good, the bad and the ugly when it comes to your skin and exercise. Buzz60’s Chloe Hurst has the story.
Fear meat no more, here’s what you’re probably doing wrong! Buzz60’s Maria Mercedes Galuppo has the story.
Christmas Eve and Christmas will not lack for changeable weather.
A weekend of mild afternoons will flip to a chilly rain on Monday -- and then quite likely some even chillier precipitation types by Wednesday.
A week of dryness, hard to come by in 2020, is about to end with more tropical entanglements.
Pumpkins may be frosted on Saturday morning, and it's not out of the question that some of the region's highest points see their first flakes Friday evening.
Fall chill is returning. But first we have a soggy Tuesday that might even get a little rumbly.
There are basically three kinds of weather common in our Septembers: (1) Extended summer heat, (2) early taste of fall, and (3) tropical stickiness and showers.
It’s not just about miles: If you don’t drive your car a lot, your oil still needs to be kept fresh. Even if you drive fewer miles each year than your automaker suggests changing the oil (say, 6,000 miles, with suggested oil-change intervals at 7,500 miles), you should still be getting that oil changed twice a year.
All hurricanes weaken after coming ashore, but most keep spinning to a lesser degree long after landfall.
Laura is a bigger concern for the Gulf Coast right now, but could bring rain and wind this weekend to Southwest Virginia.
Friday's rain was streaky, 1-2 inches for some, sprinkles for others.

Get ready for a soggy start and middle of the new week.
Dry air choked the moisture needed for significant snowfall in the Roanoke/New River valleys on Thursday, and early dry air aloft plus warm ground and an afternoon arrival of snow cut down totals quite a bit from what they could have been even in North Carolina, Southside Virginia and Hampton Roads. While many snow fans are restless in this area, some locations in North Carolina had not seen any measurable snow since the December 9, 2018, snowstorm, and ended up getting 1-4 inches of slushy wet snow in many locations with a few spots up to 5. Some of the counties bordering North Carolina and some locations west of I-77 got an inch or 2. It has all been melting away fast on this Friday.
This week's order of atmospheric festivities will be similar to last week's, moved up by a day.
2020 will quickly get on the scoreboard for rainfall over the next couple of days, as a low-pressure system tracks west of our region, bringing rounds of rainfall as it lifts Gulf of Mexico moisture over us Thursday night through Saturday. Between 3/4 inch and 1 1/2 inches of rain appears to be likely across our region, with some locally heavier amounts.
