NEW YORK (AP) - Flying burritos will soon be a reality over Virginia Tech.
    
Chipotle is taking part in a test this month that will let some of the university's students and staff have their favorite tortilla-wrapped meal delivered by drone.
    
Virginia Tech is conducting the test with Project Wing , a unit of Google owner Alphabet Inc., which makes self-flying devices that deliver food, medicine and other goods.
    
Chipotle's burritos will be put together at a food truck and then loaded on a drone.
    
Mark Blanks, director of Virginia Tech's Mid-Atlantic Aviation Partnership says the flights will take place at an undisclosed site on Virginia Tech property, but not at the main campus in Blacksburg.

    Daytime highs for the interior valleys are backing off from triple digits on Monday. Temperatures for California Valley and Shandon will get close to 100 degrees on Monday, but right now daytime highs will range from the upper 80s to upper 90s. High pressure over the area is moving to the east, which is allowing for those interior valleys to cool down this week. However, with extremely dry live and dead fuel paired with gusty onshore winds, fire weather danger remains to be of concern...
