on, on the satellite and radar. clouds are pushing in. this is courtesy of the system that is down south that is bringing the rain across tennessee and also north carolina this morning. and even portions of georgia and also florida and we're getting a blowoff and with that we are definitely seeing some clouds moving into the picture, and you can see what is going on in bel air this morning and yes, the sun is not quite up as of yet and moves in at 6:57 but you can see a little bit of daylight and you can have the clouds right now. and we can see a few peeks of brightness in this morning as well. and partly cloudy throughout the day. and definitely not going to get that abundant sunshine that we saw yesterday and the day before that. and the temperatures right now, coming in at 53 degrees in manchester and 42 in pilesville. catonsville at 55 degrees. annapolis, good morning to you, 50 degrees. as well as mount airy. and northeast at 54 degrees. high pressure is to the north. and we still have dry air in place. so although we have the cloud
cover out, there i do believe that we should stay dry as we go through the rest of the day. especially as we have the dry air in place. so we really have to policen up the atmosphere -- moisten up the atmosphere before any type of rain moves in here. the future trend goes into motion. it will pick up on the fact that we have a coastal low that moves in here just in time for the weekend but the good news is, it looks like it stays far away from the coast. that is definitely good news. we will not be dealing with any type of rainfall. as of now, each though we need the rain, a lot of you don't want it on the weekend. 75 degrees is the high temperature for today. and make sure you do send us a photo. tweet it at abc 2 weather, and the forecast looks pretty good as we head toward the weekend. let's get a check of the traffic with lauren. well, lynette, we have been dealing with fog in frederick all morning. but good news. it is tarting to dissipate. that reduced visibility not much of an issue anymore. interstate 70 nice and clear. and 95, no problems getting down to dc this morning.
and northbound lanes, 64 miles an hour. at 195. very calm ride for those of you making the push to downtown boston the fort mchenry tunnel and the harbor tunnel are delay free and 695 at the key bridge and outer loop will be clear from 95. all the way up to 83. with the stretch just taking 11 minutes, typical ride right now, and if you are traxing up in hunt val -- traveling up in hunt vally, 83, no problems from the maryland pennsylvania state line to the beltway. and jfx is nice and clear to the city. that is your time saver traffic. the federal government says it will add rear view video systems to the list of recommended features for automakers. however, safety groups call the action a stall tactic. in 2008, congress imposed a 2011 deadline for the national highway traffic safety administration to issue a rule on vehicle rear visibility and that regulation is 2 1/2 years overdue. and a later date, advocate groups and two parents are expected to file a lawsuit.

morning. davidsonville, 54 degrees. and 44 in middleton. manchester at 52. you can see what is going on in manchester. we saw the shot at the inner harbor but dealing with the cloud cover over manchester also this morning. we are seeing partly cloudy skies. and that is the name of the game as we go into the afternoon. we are not seeing abundant sunshine that we saw yesterday and the day before that. and as we look at maryland's most powerful radar as of now, we are dry. and i do believe that we will stay dry today. yes, we do have the clouds out there. but we still have very dry dew points. so the dew point is in the 40s and 50s, and that's when it has to moisten up the atmosphere before we saw some rain coming down from the area and actually landing on the ground. this is what is going on for today. 52 degrees around 8:00 this morning. and by lunchtime, it is 67. and then this afternoon, that temperature is at 75. with the clouds really holding tough, if we don't get a lot of sunshine in here, the temperature could be slightly low are. a check of the traffic now with lauren.
well, if you are heading to downtown baltimore, the jfx, it is in great shape. 55 miles an hour. southbound to 695. inside the city though we have a crash to tell you about, just reported on north charles street, right at fayette. follow me on twitter at maryland traffic for the latest alerts. no problems getting through the harbor tunnel or the fort mchenry tunnel and it is the west side of the beltway that you have to watch out for. and down to 26 miles an hour in the outer loop at liberty road. and we are taking a look at baltimore national pike and drive times are affected and a 16 minute drive and for those of you making the trech from 795 to 9 a. the inner loop is going to be nice and clear for those of you driving up to liberty road. and now, as we do check in and take a live look here at 795, at owings mills boulevard, and nothing to get nur way right now. it is going to be a calm ride. as you make the push over to the beltway. but the beltway delays are the main concern of your wednesday morning commute.
tairves. that is your time saver with lawmakers scrabbling over defunding the health care law and shutting down the government, president barack obama brought in a big gun trying to sell the health care plan. >> when have you universal enrollment you can manage your costs better and cut inflation down. the most important thing obviously is to get people enrolled in this. >> and former president bill clinton made that pitch just a week before one of the health care laws biggest changes goes into effect. on october 1, millions of americans will be able to shop for coverage through insurance exchanges. the uninsured must sign on or face a penalty. some call it a tax. and overnight, the obama administration released new numbers, on what the law will cost consumers. for example, before tax credits with individuals of maryland, they would pay $299 a month, for mid range plans. and the cheapest plan would run just under $200 a month. well, ted cruise says he is going to stand up to obama care on the floor of the senate. he has been talking now for close to 15 hours.
and is still going strong. let's take a look right now at the senate floor to see what is going on because you may not see -- >> everywhere in the world, it is true. i will tell you why. >> and you're hearing from the florida senator marko rubio as the senate filibuster is going on. this is technically not a filibuster but what happens is as it is going on is cruise will have the floor, and other people ask question, coming in and out on the senator and then the other senators can come in and also relieve from time to time, for various breaks. the only rule though for cruise is he cannot sit down, nor can he lean on the podium. the filibuster now closing in on 15 hours. among the wide ranging topics not only defunding obama care but talked about green eggs and ham and a speech by ashton kutcher to college grads about getting a job and also white castle. >> guys, it happens.
i intend to speak in support of defunding obama care. until i am no longer able to stand. on a saturday or sunday morning, when your dad is making pancakes and it is very cool when he can flip them and take them do a flip high in the air and catch them. i will credit my father, he invented, it wasn't for the restaurant but he invented green eggs and ham. >> one of the things that senator cruise spoke about relative to his father was his immigration from cuba. a prisoner of war during the revolution and talked about the time his father came to america and how hard it was to struggle getting started and he ended up being successful achieving what he called the american dream. senator cruise is not even close to the longest speech in senate history. strom thurmond spoke for 24 hours against the civil rights act of 1957. the next closest senator alfonse diamante23 hours for a stall on a military bill in 1986. maryland muslims
