>> ♪ >> this is fox5 news morning. >> ahead this morning, a saturday soaker ahead. heavy rains pound the area causing flash flooding. details with gary mcgrady. this weekend marks one year since the deadly flooding in ellicott city, maryland. we are live this morning as the city commemorates the lives lost and comes together to continue rebuilding. and another white house shakeup. the commander in chief takes to twitter to announce reince preibus is out and a new chief of staff is in. details ahead this morning. good morning, and welcome to fox5 news morning on this saturday. i'm annie yu. let's take a live look outside or this weather map, there we go. very soggy saturday and as i mentioned gary mcgrady is here to kick off our weather covera f
7:01 am
morning because more rain on the way. >> yeah, you know, what i want everybody to know today is nothing like what we had yesterday. nothing at all. i mean, the heaviest of the rain was yesterday and last night. now, look, there's still some flooding possible today and simply because i just said this to annie, our cup is full. there's no -- there's noplace for the water to go now, okay, so technically we're still under a flash flood watch until 2, 3 o'clock today, later on this afternoon, all right and right now there's no flash flood warnings in the immediate area. that's good. there's some back out there, southern tip of jersey and then back to the north and west. we're kind of in a lull today t i think the best way to say it is that we're just going to continue today with some showers. there will be some isolated spots today that more flooding will happen because, again, when you get under a couple of heavier showers or maybe even a thunderstorm we could still get a little bit of flooding. right now we're fairly dry here in the city and the suburb
7:02 am
this, now this is still some good rain here, if you put this into motion, look what's happening. most of that is just staying there. okay. we're in this situation right now where we're fairly dry. the area of low pressure is starting to move on to the east and to the northeast. so, the heaviest of the rain right now is off to the west of us and i really believe that's primarily where it's going to stay for the next few hours. as the entire area of low pressure pivots off to the east and northeast, some of that may actually come on across and we could get a thunderstorm bubbling up at times later on this afternoon but again, today is nothing like what we had yesterday. all right, look at the rainfall totals. now, this is the doppler estimate, okay. it it is not perfection in terms of how much rain we've had but it does a pretty good idea of giving you places that had the heaviest of the rain. you can see where the oranges are, the reds are, that was the heaviest rain over t
7:03 am
there right around national i pinpointed that it was 1.8-inches of rain and if you look at what national ended up with until about 1 o'clock in the morning, it was 1.85-inches so i think that the doppler estimate is doing real, real good and you see these rainfall totals. this is why we had all the flooding yesterday. we had two to 4 inches of rain pretty much area wide. again, the heaviest of the rain threat is off to the east of us now. we'll just watch that next little area to the west of us, annie. still some showers today but again t-nothing like yesterday or last night. more on the forecast coming up. >> thanks gary. time now 7:03. let's look at this video of a dramatic high water rescue matt ackland was there for it.- all as a man was rescued after getting stuck on standing water on beach drive. this is why emergency crews stress the phrase turn around don't drown because you never know how deep that water
7:04 am
especially when it's flooding. we spoke with them yesterday about how they handle these types of rescues. here's what they had to say. >> the water rescue resources have a protocol they follow its a little bit different for this water than if it was in the creek versus if it was very fast moving water. so, for this one they were able to feel their way out and get to the person and bring them off the water. >> you never see this road -- i've neer seen it this flooded. i've driven this road for eight years and i've never seen it this deep so something to see. >> again, emergency responders want to be clear and remind us just how dangerous these situations can be. and all new at 7:00 heavy rains caused the evacuation of a three story apartment building in d.c. 11 people have been displaced at the building at the 3800 block of v street z d.c. fire and ems says heavy rains caused part that of building's basement wall to collapse. the incident happened at 3 o'clock this morning. thankfully no one was injured. one year ago

7:07 am
woman goes through at the prompts before interfering with the transaction. he continues as she attempts to stop him not what police advise but the struggle lasted at least a few minutes. >> i don't know if i would do in that situation. >> reporter: would you fight back? >> yeah, of course. i mean, you have to. at that point it's survival. >> reporter: police say the same suspect targeted another woman using the same wells fargo drive-through atm also on tuesday morning. he changed his m o. this time. watch closely as he sneaks into the passenger's seat. the woman in the video has no idea what's going down until now. that's when a full-fledged brawl breaks out between the victim and the suspect before he ultimately takes off running. >> we're seeking the public's assistance to help us identify this subject to get him off the streets and we're also advising people that if they could, please know their surroundings and lock their vehicle when they're at atm machines. >> reporter: mea

washington ending with a west wing shakeup announced late friday afternoon. president trump announced general john kelly will be his new chief of staff. reince preibus is out of the white house now and it was only a day after that bombshell of an interview in which new communications director anthony scaramucci ripped priebus that the news broke. fox5's jim lokay has details. >> resigned. he accepted it. >> reince preibus is out, general john kelly is in. president trump announced early today he's appointing homeland security secretary kelly to be his new chief of staff taking over from reince preibus. >> reince is a good man. john kelly will do a fantastic job. >> the president made the announcement on twitter just before 5 o'clock. >> i think actually going a different direction hitting a reset button is a good thing and the president did that and so i think he's happy. i got to tell you although it's always a little mixed when things like this happen i generally feel pretty good. >> the news comes after a particularly rough week for the white house. new
7:12 am
anthony scaramucci who clashed with priebus criticized him on twitter and in the president. and of course the failure of republican senators to repeal the affordable care act. >> very clear is that the president wanted to make a change with the healthcare bill going down late the other night and coupled with all the intrigue stories we've seen for a long time the president was resolved in the fact that he wanted to change direction of the administration inside the white house. >> the situation in the white house that we have seen this last week was unsustainable. running a government is not running a business and that has been very clear. >> at 189 days in the white house priebus was the shortest serving chief of staff in modern history. u.s. secretary of state rex tillerson is calling on china and russia to do more to curb the growing threat posed by north korea's missiles. this comes after north korea's second test launch of a intercontinental ballistic missile that's capable of reaching the u.s. the missile landerd in the sea of japan. kim jong un is threatening the
7:13 am
should president trump take steps to stop the country's nuclear program. storm system slowly moving out. >> it has been a wild weather period the last few weeks if you think about this. we've had three water spouts in the bay just in the last last the tornado sunday night over on kent island and then all this crazy rain. this is pretty unusual for us, this kind of rain in july. >> yeah, and also it's a little chilly for july. >> it is. well, you get this much rain and then you get a lot of cloud cover and the we -- this is in a sense a little bit like kind of a summer nor'easter. i know that's been kind of kicked around a little bit on the web andline and twitter and all that stuff last couple days but really it is. so you end up with these northerly winds and that kind of keeps us a little on the cooler side as well so good observation, annie, good observation. reagan national 72 degrees right now. dulles is 68. bwi marshall is 68. so, we're
7:14 am
what the heat wave we were talking about last week, okay. and it really looks like the next several days are good. tomorrow is great. so, it's a 50-50 weekend. today even though there's flooding still possible out there, simply because there's really not a lot of places for the rain to go and we are getting rain. i'll show you on radar in just a second, we're still getting rain to the north and to the northwest, okay, so all that rain comes down the big rivers and the big arteries, if you will. the streams, too. so we could still continue to have flooding in and around that. the flash flood watch is in place. there's no flash flood warnings in place here for us. this will go through into the early parts of the afternoon, 2, 3 o'clock for most of us. again, no flash flood warnings right now. there's still some aerial flood warnings which basically takes into consideration where the rivers and the streams are at peak and they may have the potential for overflowing, okay, so we'll keep an eye on all of this through the
7:15 am
daytime as well and i think later on today the threat of the heaviest rain really will have shifted on off on the east of us and we start a drying pattern tonight. here's current radar to kind of give you an idea what's going on. we're dry for the most part. there's a couple sprinkles here and there, that's about it. heaviest of the rain has shifted off to the east. still some pockets of some heavier rain back out to the west of us. this really -- that rain really not going anywhere. it's kind of just sitting there right now and providing a lot of rain so there will be some flooding out there before it's all said and done. these colors here, the estimate of rainfall from the doppler radar here, it's only an estimate, it's not perfect but it kind of gives you an idea where the heaviest of the rain has been. in and around the beltway, inside the beltway, in d.c., too, we had high water rescues throughout the day yesterday off to the east of us towards the bay a lot of heavy rain here, close to 5-inches of rain northern sections of calvert county into southern
7:16 am
county, almost 2-inches of rain for the district. i'll be talking about this all morning long. so, the heaviest of the rain is scooting off to the east. look at this little area of rainfall here. again its kind of on the backside of the low pressure, so it's really sitting here and spinning and staying in place, so there's going to be some good rainfall totals there and eventually that will swing on across and it will bring us chance for some showers today. so, today we're kind of showery with a chance of a thunderstorm whereas yesterday it was just that heavy rain potential pretty much all day long. 72 here in the city now. gaithersburg 66. the dewpoints are still running pretty high, upper 60's, so the potential is there for some pretty good rainfall. here the next several days in terms of the temperatures today we're 75, okay, limited, if any, sunshine. if we get any sunshine it will be late this afternoon and look where temperatures are going to be going. 82 tomorrow. tomorrow looks great. 86 on monday. 89 on tuesday. so, we start the warming trend. there's your forecast. annie. >> thank you so much gary. time now is 7:16. if you are just waking up and trying to get

7:31 am
flood warnings. at least not here. there's some off to the east of us. the southern tip of jersey there south of atlantic city, that is going to be a little flash flood warning and then more back to the west and northwest. where i actually think there will be probably more of those flash flood warnings the next couple of hours and i'll show you radar on that in just a second. 72 officially at the airport right now. gaithersburg 66. frederick 68. a lot of 60's out in the suburbs. some lower 70's down to the south. dewpoints as you kind of -- as you can imagine still very high. pretty close to the actual temperature so you start getting dewpoints close to the actual temperature and you may get a little fog forming in spots o temperature trend looks like this. we're 75 or so today. it's going to be kind of hard to tell exactly how warm we're going to get. we have a lot of clouds. maybe a little sun late this afternoon and winds will be coming from the north today. so, definitely way cooler than we should be, all
7:32 am
82 tomorrow. tomorrow looks gorgeous. we're going to get this area low pressure out of here. sun comes back. high pressure builds in. things look real, real nice. monday is six. tuesday is 89. we definitely start this warming trend but it does not look like we're going to be looking at a heat wave or anything like that coming up. we just looked at the local temperatures so let's skip by that and we'll look at regional temperatures. pittsburgh is 55 degrees. binghamton is 54. so, there's definitely some cooler air up here. now, we'll try and tap into a little bit of that but nothing like that, okay. i think we're just going to tap into enough with northerly winds today to keep temperatures lower to mid 70's pretty much area wide. new york city is 70 degrees. boston is 65. the winds are going to be blowing up here to the north and to the northeast of us. along the shore from delaware all the way up to the cape is this big area of low pressure kind of gets a little bit more organized and tries to head up the coast a little bit like what we
7:33 am
bit of a summer nor'easter. rain like what we've had the last 24 to 36 hours. definitely unusual this time of year on such a wide span, on such a wide area of real estate. we're fairly dry this morning. couple of little showers coming down through frederick county and into loudoun county but that's it. the heaviest of the rain is back out to the west of us. i think it stays there. i think this pretty much just sits here for quite awhile. so western maryland, up into western sections of pennsylvania and then right down into west virginia and western sections of virginia, that's where we're going to get this heavy rain for the next several hours. so all the streams and rivers and whatnot that originate up here still getting all that rain and all that water has to move in our direction. so, we still have to watch the streams and rivers and creeks quite closely 'cause they're running high now and there's not any room for the water to go or to accumulate so therefore we could have continued flooding. again, just like yesterday,
7:34 am
just don't do it because you never know what's going to happen. doesn't take much to float a car and move you right down in fast water. rain is moving out. we still have that one lobe of rain back to the west of us. futurecast for the most part sees this. watch what it does with it. kind of keeps it out here. i think it's too much. i think it's showing too much now in terms of what we'll have by 11, 12 o'clock. most of this should still be to the west of us and through the afternoon this just continues to pivot around the low pressure and we can still get heavier rain down to the south of us. we're watching that real close. seven-day forecast we dry out tomorrow and the into the next seven days where it looks real nice. a nice week is coming our way. annie. >> one year ago this weekend heavy rains caused deadly flooding in ellicott city maryland. in a year since those rapid flood waters destroyed and damaged parts of the town, the community has been rebuilding and recovering from all of this. anjali hemphill joining us live this morning from ellicott city with an update on the

7:36 am
everything that has been accomplished since then. >> well, it's been a long year. there's been a lot of heartache and when you think about what this street looked like a year ago, it's hard to believe where we are now. but it's all because of the people of ellicott city, the residents, the business owners, the property owners, they have shown the whole country what resilience is all about. they got hit by the biggest punch you could ever have and they would just not let it knock them down i'm proud to be part of this community. i've lived here all my life and to know that ellicott city is stronger more vibrant than before. we're stronger by infrastructure, our streams are stronger, we have more work to do, we're stronger with our buildings because people rebuilt them to be more flood proof and we're stronger with our people. >> we've had ironically very rainy weather this weekend. one year after i'm sure that sort of rattled some people in terms of what they went through a year ago. tell me in detail what you've done about the work to get where you are and also to
7:37 am
prevent more flooding in the future isn't that a lot of work on stream beds and culverts, a lot of new piping. we have a lot more work to do of course and we're going to put in about $18 million of federal state funds, do three more storm water retention problems slow the water coming down the hill and a new pipe to divert some water to make the flooding less likely in the west end here. a lot of people think about the business part of ellicott city. there are a lot of folks who live west of here who have a a lot of damage and we want to do whatever we can to help them. >> reporter: progress is astounding. three people were killed in that flood. today is a day of celebration. they've got a 5k starting at 8 o'clock and then basically a block party the entire rest of the day. that's the latest here in ellicott city. annie, i'll send it back to you. >> thanks so much anjali. time now 7:37. coming up, do you have a backyard or a patio you would like to enjoy during the warmer months? ahead this morning, we've got you covered on some unique ways you can give your deck or patio a face-lift. you don't want

7:49 am
pressur moves in late this afternoon and this evening, all that rain will get kicked out of here. tomorrow believe it or not looks really, really good. temperatures right now are generally in the lower 70's and the upper 60's. one lonesome little shower in the suburbs out to the west of us here. this is about it in terms of up and down i-95, back out 66. even the i-81 corridor is fairly dry this morning. the heaviest of the rain is farther back out to the west of us and it is moving and cruising on offer to the east -- off to the east. the heaviest of the rain potential is getting off to the east this morning. still some pretty good showers, though, western maryland, back out into eastern sections of west virginia, western sections, extreme western sections of virginia and you see how this rain, it really isn't moving. it's just kind of sitting in the same spot and so basically we have the backside of low pressure and it's really hung up out here. i think it stays here for the next couple of hours and then it will start
7:50 am
to the south and hopefully gets out of here by certainly this afternoon. now, keep in mind there's still a chance for showers today in spots and a thunderstorm as well. so, the flash flood watch is still in effect until 2 o'clock today. notice futurecast. you're keeping this lobe of rain down to the south later this afternoon and by late this evening it continues to take it down to the south, down towards the tidewater area through norfolk down into the outer banks where they have no power apparently and then we begin to dry out tomorrow morning. we could wake up top brilliant sunshine, high pressure builds in so during the day tomorrow it looks real, real good. a couple of showers north and west but that's going to stay up there tomorrow evening. so, here's your forecast today. a few showers this morning, 73 degrees. again this afternoon into this evening there could still be a few showers and a little bit of thunderstorm activity is certainly possible. 82 tomorrow and then we're basically right around 90 most of next week. so it gets better annie. >> thank y

8:00 am
the city commemorates the lives lost and comes together to continue rebuilding. and another shakeup at the white house. the commander-in-chief takes to twitter to announce reince preibus is out and a new chief of staff is in. we'll have details ahead on this as well. time now is 8 o'clock. good morning and thanks so much for joining us. i'm annie yu on this saturday. here's a live look at radar. gary we see a lot of movement. it's going slowly. >> it's moving out. the heavy stuff is moving out. >> so maybe a chance of a storm for us. >> oh, absolutely. i think there's still a chance of showers today. i think there's still a chance of a thunderstorm here or there. today is going to be nothing like yesterday or even last night where the rain came across. listen, flooding is still a possibility. we have no more room for this water and no more places for this water to go. so, it won't take much. there's still a lot of shower activity back to the west and northwest and that has to come downstream, okay. so, flooding is still a
8:01 am
not expecting a lot of heavy rain area wide today. flash flood watch still in place. this goes through 2 o'clock today. we should start to dry things out substantially late this afternoon into this evening. again i just want to say there's still a chance of showers, there's still a chance of a thunderstorm out there from time to time especially as we get into the afternoon hours. i put satellite on here because it does look like we're beginning to see some breaks in the overcast. this system is starting to slowly move off to the east and to the northeast. we do still have a a lot of rain back out to the west. we have a lot of rain to the east of us but it looks like we're finding a little bit of a drying taking place between the rain to the east and the rain to the west . so, this is radar right now that kind of gives you an idea what's taking place. don't worry about the rain to the east. it is out of here. we're just kind of watching what is happening back to the west of us and to the northwest of us. for the most part the damage is done. look at these rainfall
8:02 am
rainfall over the last 24 hours. where the orange is and the red is, that is where we had the extreme heavy rain over the last 24 hours. and some of that inside the beltway and d.c. at national airport we recorded a little bit less than 2-inches of rain and that's pretty much what they had the last 24 hours. off to the east of us, parts of southern maryland and the eastern shore, that's where the extreme rainfall was. anywhere between three and almost 6-inches of rain out there. parts of anne arrundel county had almost 4-inches of rain. down here through calvert county that's where we had a bull's eye of rain as well, anywhere between two and 3-inches of rain. montgomery county a lot of heavy rainfall totals as well. only had over 2-inches, germantown had over 2-inches, montgomery county -- hold on one second, southeast of gaithersburg they had almost 2-inches of rain. so, again, generally
8:03 am
and 4-inches of rain areawide yesterday and some of it came in a very short period of time. this area of low pressure continues to move off to the east and the northeast of us. temperatures today will warm up into the mid to upper 70's for some. fredericksburg this afternoon you're a little bit cooler. it does look like we'll have a few more showers rotating around down there. so, we'll keep an eye on the showers. potential flooding. but again, annie, a lot drier than it was yesterday. tomorrow looks gorgeous. more on that forecast coming up. >> awesome. thank you gary. time now 8:03. heavy rains have caused the evacuation of a three-story apartment building in southeast d.c. we know at this time 11 people have been displaced at the building in the 3800 block of v street southeast. d.c. fire and ems says heavy rains caused part of that buildings' basement wall to collapse. officials say the incident happened around 3 o'clock this morning. no one was injured. and check out this video of a dramatic high water rescue from yesterday in chevy chase. our very own
8:04 am
there for it all after a man was rescued after getting stuck in high standing water on beach drive. this is why emergency crews stress turn around don't drown because you never know how deep the water is especially when it's flooding. we spoke with him about how they handle these types of rescues. here's what they had to say. >> the water rescue resources have a protocol they follow. it's a little bit different for this water than if it was in the creek versus if it was very fast moving water. so, for this one they were able to feel their way out and get to the person and bring him off the water. >> you never see this road -- i've never seen it this flooded. i've driven this road for eight years and i've never seen it this deep. so, something to see. >> again, emergency responders want to be clear and remind us just how dangerous these situations can be. well, one year ago, this weekend heavy rains caused deadly flooding in ellicott city. in a year since those rapid flood waters destroyed and damaged parts of the town the community has been recovering and rebuilding and our very own

8:15 am
here for the next couple of hours. may just rain itself out or it looks like a better thing -- well, the better possibility here is that this will start to rotate down to the south and come around our southern counties later on this afternoon. everything kind of moving around low pressure. i've zoomed in here. this is storm tracker radar but we're tracking the rainfall from the last 24 hours with doppler radar. this is not perfect by any means but some of these rainfall totals measure up quite closely with the ground truth that we've already gotten so look, right here around national airport in the last 24 hours, up close to 3-inches of rain and that is indeed pretty much what they had in the last 24 hours. they had less than 2-inches yesterday and then they had another 1.5-inches last evening and during the overnight. so, a ton of rain down here. not too far to the west down around arlington, there's almost 4-inches of rainfall, again doppler estimated and look at the bull's-eye up h
8:16 am
montgomery county, extending over into southern sections of howard county, this is basically right along the inner county connector there. so as much as five and a half inches of estimated rainfall but we did have some reports of three to four, 4.5-inches up around here just north of laytonsville and just north of olney there. more out into northern parts of montgomery county, northwestern parts of montgomery county, two and a half inches there and south of leesburg a little bit over an inch. thank goodness we're not talking about anything like that today. the heaviest of the rain is shifting off to the east and northeast. this big area of low pressure kind of like a summertime nor'easter is lifting all that out. backside rainfall here is what we're seeing now. we'll continue to watch exactly where that goes but it does look like that will rotate mainly to the south of the metro area. 72 right now, 68 in gaithersburg. temperatures today for the most part up into the middle to upper 70's. a few spots down to the south still in the 60's. and what we're t

possibility of some more showers, nothing like what we had yesterday. a thunderstorm is possible the winds out of the north at about 10 to 20 miles per hour. so, through the day parts today, 73 or so at 11 o'clock. still the possibility of some showers. maybe even a little sunshine out there in places. and a little bit of thunderstorm later on. the low moves on. high pressure builds in. tomorrow looks great. dry and sunny with temperatures up into the lower 80's. next several days we'll continue to warm things up. back where it should be almost perfectly where it should be by the middle part of next week, upper 80's to right around 90 degrees. we'll get this rain out of here and we're going to need several days to dry out. annie. >> next week looks super nice. thank you, gary. in other news at this hour, vacation ended early for thousands of tourists on two north carolina islands after construction crews working on a bridge there cut the power. it happened on thursday and in the meantime all those people vacationing there have been told to leave and evacuate the area. now, yesterday thousands of tois

welcome back everybody. 8:33 is your time. that was a shot of the woodrow wilson bridge looking a little gray out there. >> but it's not raining this morning and i think today we'll have some showers. we've have a thunderstorm possibly, not guaranteed. >> do we know roughly what time? you know you love that question. >> for the thunderstorm? >> just like you put me on the spot with that song. >> no, that's fine. you did well. i'm going to be honest and tell you that we could have a thunderstorm possible and i would say probably later into the afternoon hours. that's about as specific as i can -- 'cause i'm just being honest. now, flooding is still possible but really it's not necessarily due to rain that we're going get here. even though we could have some showers and thunderstorms. we could have a thunderstorm, we'll watch that real close 'cause that could cause some problems but we still value a lot of rivers, a lot of streams and creeks right up against their banks if not already spilling over so it won't take much and think about it, there is some rain right now up north and west of us and so that's filling the
8:35 am
and it still has to come down towards the bay. so, that could cause continued rising on some of the streams and the rivers increeks so watch out. we had a numerous high water rescues out there yesterday. a lot of it because people were trying to drive through flooded roadways and that's a problem no matter -- just don't do it, okay. listen, here's the flash flood watch in place. this goes through 2 o'clock. the weather service issues this. they just put out a little note. they said they're monitoring any more rainfall that could happen around here so some of this may get trimmed you have a little bit early. there's still somewhat they call aerial flood warnings out there right now which basically take into consideration the rivers aren't the streets -- and the streets and creeks that are still at their banks. no flash flood warnings in place right now. that's good. showers back out to the west and northwest of us. hagerstown you're getting wet right now. northern parts of frederick county getting
8:36 am
most of the rain is still well back to the west of us. this is even west of the i-81 corridor. and most of it is shifting off, western maryland into eastern sections of west virginia and it does look like it seems to be weakening just a little bit. it's staying out there, too. at least this -- this is backside of low pressure. so, i don't expect much more rain to fall for us but until the low pressure gets out of here, we'll have a chance for showers and again maybe a thunderstorm. okay, all these colors, this is the last 24 hours of doppler estimated rainfall. it's not pearl if he can't but it's pretty good. we haven't gotten a lot of observational data in yet for the complete storm total but the bull's-eye -- we zoomed in here to the city. almost 3-inches of rain at national airport and that's pretty much what they got, okay, so the doppler rainfall is doing -- doppler rainfall estimate is doing a pretty good job. northern of montgomery county into howard county, wow, rainfall totals up there between four and 6-inches of
8:37 am
right along that intercounty connector so parts of olney up towards laytonsville and then maybe even towards damascus getting some very, very heavy rain up there as well and that extends all the way over through howard county and into baltimore. so, even inside the beltway we have anywhere between three and 4-inches of rain from what we had yesterday presidential nominee last night. we had a lot of rain late last evening. so, today more showers. we're going to go to a temperature of only 75 degrees. little bit of sunshine in spots. we get a little sunshine in spots that could help to elevate the thunderstorm risk late this afternoon. tomorrow looks gorgeous. high pressure comes in. relative humidity will drop. the sun comes out. we'll start drying things out and we're only going to be about 82 degrees. >> wow. >> so, it's a 50-50 weekend. again today, some showers maybe a thunderstorm but not like yesterday. you're not going have to stay inside all day today. >> tomorrow looks dreamy. thanks gary. >> okay. >> all right. one year ago this weekend heavy rains caused deadly flooding in ellicott city. la
