for granted alzheimer's took away from my dad. for seven years, i watched him decline and be lucy nolan do the things like eating and talking and remembering and walking. a year later my daughter was born. i spent -- have spent the next nine years watching her gain all of those abilities, learning how to walk, learning how to talk, learning how to feed herself. one of the coolist things about alzheimer's is that it -- even before that person dies, you lose them. because it takes away the in essence of who they were as a person. alzheimer's is still one of those diseases that people don't talk as much
the difference between also and any other condition is alzheimer's is the hurricane that blows in and destroys a shore line immediately and wrecks houses. it's a slow method kal cruel erosion of a person's memories, their abilities and the in essence of who they are. that takes time to understand but it's also important to understand that other people have been through this and that there is help out there. and there is support out there. for anybody who needs it. >> amazing stories we're sharing with you from our own co workers some of these things that we are sharing along with you. >> he articulate that day so well, beautifully and

activity. a mix of clouds and sun, we're also continuing to watch this area of rain, that is looking like it's going to start moving down through central virginia. but it also looks like it could clip some of our southern suburbs. we're going to watch that for you closely. that's the activity that could kind of is spread out, ride that warm front that has stalled down to our south and maybe spread showers and thunderstorms's overnight. 81 degrees, our high temperature today, 83, but it feels more humid out there because that humidity has come up and the water available is increasing. what you need to know about that is as that moisture increases in the atmosphere, any shower or thunderstorm that develops might have the potential to produce heavy rain and that's the scenario we're seeing is for tomorrow night. you'll be interested to see it's timing for tomorrow night. here's the big weather player. that is a warm front. it moved up from the
creeping closer and closer. separating warm air to the south. from the cool -- somewhat cooler air over us. it's also at railroad track little weak waves of low pressure, we think they're going to be two of them that ride that front tomorrow 10 spread snow showers our direction. overnight it will be comfortable. 69 to 70. maybe 71 degrees in a few spots. watching overnight showers and storms. here's what happens tomorrow. with that frontal boundary still to the south and i mentioned it's the railroad track. there's a storm coming in. it's going to ride down along this warm front and spread a round of rain in here tomorrow into friday and we think potentially heavy rain, the atmosphere will be loaded up with moisture by then that we could see one to two inches of rain as these storms come through. we'll be in the 80's tomorrow, i'm going to forecast 84 and surprisingly i think most of the day will be dry with just a spotty shower. but watch the timing and you'll see what i'm talking about. i'm going tota
now. because as we watch this inclusive we've been noting might affect charlottesville. it seems to want to spreads out and get into the southern suburbs around 11:00. that's a pretty healthy storm being depicted in the hagersville area too. we'll watch that for later tonight. they move on out and our morning starts out dry. 7:00 a.m. commute. maybe there's a spotty shower, a few were around this morning that didn't show up on our models last night. we go through the day, 6:00 maybe you're going for a bike ride on the mall. you should be ok. you can see one or two showers but nothing that would be that bad. but we were talking about the oakmont in pittsburgh. look at that line and showers and storms that's going to be coming out of western pennsylvania and moving in our direction, looks like it wants to slide to the south, notice brighter colors with heavy rain maybe a little bit of hail for midnight tomorrow night. then another round that may affect us at 8:00 in the morning friday. starting to tomorrow night after about 9:00, through friday morning, we'll have to deal with it.
direction changing. winds out of the northeast start to should have that moisture down to the south and we should clear out by friday. right now, the weekend is looking fantastic. one last thing i want to say about tomorrow. we are outlooked for the possibility of strong storms in the yellow area, that's a slight risk for stronger gusts of 60 miles an hour heavy downpours and crowd to ground lightening marginal risk for dc. south and west will be the best chance of seeing the storms. wrap it up with the seven-day forecast. i'm loving the weekend, still looking good. i will say, it's looking better locally with saturday at 81 and sunday 82. father's day looking great, beaches might not be as nice, there's an area of low pressure that might be close enough to throw showers monday, 87 first day of summer and it will feel like it. maybe a shower or thunderstorm on tuesday and wednesday about 86 degrees partly sunny skies, we're heating up as we get ready for the summer. >> that time
