especially north of interstate t 70. frederick is getting that rainn hopefully clarksburg stayingurg dry just south here in here montgomery county and up into northeastern maryland there'sten more of that m rain as then as t frontal boundary that istal pushing those showers in ourthor direction gets ready to moven ge through but look at the snow t s it produced.roduced. i think the timing for ouror o winter weather outlook was wea pretty good. this will produce a few inches in up in upstate new york andnd into new england and what a w about winter? finally i think i people are starting to catchingt on that it's coming and ourur floor directo me shot squirrels have beent sq going absolutely nuts thisui nui year which i have noticedch i they're running like crazy and gathering and burying their t nuts and i think they wereer picking up on what he we'ree' picking up on.ing upn we think this is going to be a b cold and snowy winter here in d.c. d. a lot of signs for that andof sg we've beenns for putting thishis forecast together and a bigndig tip of the hat to mike thomasikt he's been doing a ton of t o research and we arere forecasting 16 to 24-inches ofes snow for d.c. d not in one big batch like we lee got last year but many stormssts
time called clippers.lipp 22 to 30-inches in our northern and western suburbs. a that wouldnd w include much ofuo montgomery county and loudoun lu county and of course up into upn the mountains you get way more m than 40-inches but even in even some of the high spots along interstate 81, 28 to 40-inchesih is what we are thinking think primarily because we expect itba to be a colder than average winter.nt we think much of the easternas half of the country he will beei colder than average and some of what we're basing this on has to do with th weak la nina the warming or cooling of the pacific eagles ee along the equator. eat there's a warm blob in then t north of alaska which has been a big climate driver for thedr last couple years.la that's why we're going withoingt that cold winter above normalbor snow and a clipper driven dri winter. chances of getting a big stormis that would dump 30-inches like n we got last year look low to l us but not zero so we'll just j keep that in more.uske if you would like to go -- to-
page. temperatures in the upper 50's to low 60's anes id we'll see those breezes picking up. u they're not that strong now. winds still out of the south soh which shows us that the frontal boundary has not come through yet.bounda but yo it does it dn because your winds will startdsa to gust and that willtil definitely shut off thehuoff th showers and bring drier airanin in. by 7 o'clock, 60 degrees.0 gr by 9 o'clock, maybe ann isolated shower north at 58wer n and by 11 o'clock, 56 degrees.6e the front comes on through.gh it dries us out.es us out it picks up the breezes andreezs we'll be pretty chilly tonightit falling not expecting a lot of 30's. tomorrow as high pressure builds in, we're going to get that return flow out of then, wt north and thatur will keep us ap little cooler than average. avee we'll be into the he low 60's0's tomorrow with a lot of sunshine but gusts up and over o 25 miles an hour so blowinges as those leaves around just at little bit. we're going to forecast 62 for the high in d.c.. upper 50 north and west of d.c. to about 64 in fredericksburg. how about the weekend? it iss looking great. saturday, sunny and warm, 74. at least 75 sunday. sunda
there could be a couple ofbe a f late showers around on sundayn as well. there's a weak storm systemtorme speaking of storms not too n t unlike a clipper and this isnd i what we're forecasting a lot of this winter and sometimesim they start to show their handeih here in late october and early r november.vember this one would be very weak just maybe bringing a couple a l passing showers. showe marine corps marathon i thinkn k the conditions are pretty are good.. race starts at 7:55, 7:55, 60 degrees, dry throughout thee race. ra by plan m finishers at 69 degrees butdeee that's a pretty good forecast pt as we go forward and thend colors are looking great, too.kt this is upstate new york.or foliage coming on strong now stn ina.ur area. this would be a great weekend b to get out and get some greate a pictures and hope you'll sharela them with us here at fox5 d.c. d all right, seven-day forecast, , and you can see that as wes we head toward halloween still inl good shape.good maybe not quite as warm as themt weekend is going to be but but 64 degrees but even afterfter halloween, which i think is
