great program there. take look at the temperatures out there right now. it's a very warm night. you already knew that. 84 degrees. winds out of the southeast, three miles per hour. again, we talk about the heat. 84. then you talk about the heat index. the way it feels. here it is 11:00, is still feels like 91 here. i want you to notice, fredericksburg, gaithersburg, we're seeing the dew points fall and there's some good news tomorrow. i told you earlier maybe a little good news. the humidity will not be as big a factor the next couple of days. storm team 4 radar no rain to talk about. we did see a couple of showers just south of fredericksburg a little earlier. they quickly moved on. you can see them down toward spotsylvania county. look at the high pressure. spinning around this area and underneath that area of high pressure we get hot and that's been the case. high pressure sitting around our area. we're waiting for a cold front to come down. this week, it stays back to our north and
the high pressure remains and that's why we have prolonged heat wave right on through the next couple of days. high temperatures tomorrow 94 degrees. not quite as humid. heat index is over 100. tomorrow, under 100 degrees and not much of a heat index at all, so that's at least a little bit of a silver lining. notice your sun, high temperature of 93 and as we move toward early next week, we get to 95 again on monday and tuesday. wednesday should be the warmest day ahead of a cold front that will give us a high temperature of 96. a better chance of a couple thunderstorms too, but you look that's the only chance at thunderstorms on there and that front will also help to cool thing off next thursday and friday but even that cool-off is short lived too. >> all right. thanks, doug. coming up, redskins with that big preseason win tonight. we go live back to fedex field

redskins win it 21-16. >> we struggled early. we like the way we came back. we kept battling. we got the ball in the end zone three times which is nice. i like to see us be a little more crisp and i think penalty and some of the things we did hurt ourselves but overall i like the way we at least rebounded and got drives in the end zone. >> meantime, a big night at nats park. this little girl enjoying national hot dog day. bryce harper, nats up 5-2. harper comes to the plate. blasts this pitch to center. it goes off the wall. two runs will come in to score. harper hustling around the bases and ends up on third with a triple. the nats, they go on to win this one. the opener against the rockies, 8-5 as geogonzalez picks up the 100th win of his career. hot dog day, dog day, it's all
