9:50 am
correct? >> yes, it's warm now. it's going to be hot later on. a touch of humidity going into your monday, and then tuesday we will have a chance for some showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon. now, wednesday is our transition day as a cold front pushes through the area. that means we will have a better chance of scattered showers and thunderstorms. as far as ourat temperures are concerned right now, not too bad. they are moseying up on to the 80 degree mark. it is going to be warm. we take on the dodgers this afternoon. fi1:35 is our st pitch. again it's going to be dry i think throughout the entire game. again that stray shower chance mainly north through maryland. but temperatures a going to be in the 90s. it is going to be brutal if you are sitting the sunshine. make sure you are hydrated there if you are headed out to the nats game. as far as what we are looking at on the radar, nothing. temperatures through the day tomorrow going to be inhe low-to-mid 90s. a little bit moreow humid tomorr than today, and today a little bit more humid thwe yesterday. eep amping up that humidity. tuesday, wednesday, you willef itely feel that humidity.
9:51 am
you may feel a few raindrops north of the area as we go through your afternoon and evening another chance of scattered -- isolated shafers tomorrow rnoon and better chance of scattered showers on your tuesday afternoon. a andain i don't think everybody will see them. the best chance of rain really comes on wednesday with that frontal systemil that w be pushing through and moving through on thursday. it stalls out. so we do have those chances of rain. i even keptce chanin on friday, although that may be far south on friday where we may be friday. i'll keep a small chance. so we just look unsettled after we get through wednesday. so enjoy the day today. it's going to be nice, but hot and humid through this we're the slowskys.
