Fair Weather at the Fair
The county fair season is off and running across the region and already the weather has played an important role in attendance.
Take Saturday night’s comfy conditions where a big crowd showed up for the demolition derby in Proctorville. I will be spotlighting the zaniness of this event in my feature report on Friday’s 5:30 edition.
Of course since then the air has turned tropically steamy and thunderstorms have roamed the region. That has given some would-be fairgoers reason to stay home.
Now on this Wednesday, the stagnant sticky summer air remains in place so a soupy day is underway at Sleepy Hollow where the Kanawha Valley Women’s Golf Association outing is going-on.
In the haze and humidity of this July day, a shower or thunderstorm can not be ruled out especially points south.
Then tonight, the weather gods will blow a breath of fresher air our way as north breezes arrive. Fairgoers will find the air easier to take as temperatures settle back into the 70s once the sun goes down. On the fair marquee is the Battle of the Bands in Proctorville and Motocross and Bluegrass music in Eleanor.
That cozier air will chase away the staleness and usher in a shot of comfy air for Thursday. In fact, Thursday is shaping up to be a TC Top 10er with Blue skies and a nice north Breeze (B & B weather).
Slowly the muggy air will return Friday into the weekend, so my suggestion is to enjoy the weather on Thursday!
