5:41 pm
see and what is the hurricane irma incredible strength. you can see where it moved away from the british virgin islands. there's a little glitch there. i wanted you to see it because it's so incredibly powerful to look at and jaw dropping. we may hopefully never see another storm of this intensity for years and years. let's hope not. it is the strongest ever seen in the atlantic basin with winds of 185 miles an hour that have been maintained over 24 hours. they're still flying night and finding sustained winds of 185, 186, at category 5, no weakening happened. if it misses the island, it appears the eye will stay off the coast. it might brush across cuba. that would mean very little weakening, so it's either a 5 or 4 going forward. this is the latest track from the national hurricane
5:42 pm
does it touch the miami area on sunday with winds of 145 miles an hour. and then move up with a big surge toward the charleston area. there's a lot of consensus with our models that they're agreeing on that path, that would be not only a big wind damage but a storm surge. it will likely stay a powerful storm with not much disruption of land masses or these islands to do anything about it. we're back here locally focusing on what was yesterday's high temperatures in the mid and upper 80's, humid. normal high is 83. and we're 64 degrees, we've had the showers most day, winchester, only 59, and all of us will be heading down to the 50's overnight and we're going to stay in the 50's. most of the rest of this week at night. and low 70's during the day. it will feel almost mid to late october. now, if not early november for some of you. the showers hang
5:43 pm
about 2:00 in the morning, then we think they will taper off but could be replaced closer to dawn by a little bit of fog. don't let that surprise you. storm tracker radar has showers in our area, you can see they're kind of moving from south to north. we still got more in the pipeline to our south. this will start to shift to the east and we'll cut thing off, we're seeing clearing out through western pennsylvania but as we clear out, fog could be around, we keep it in for the evening hours by maybe midnight starting to see breaks and notice at 7:00 in the morning, shows it clearing out but if we have enough, we could have fog and low clouds that aren't necessarily going to show up. the late week pattern, features a breeze as strong high pressure builds in, keeps us with the fall feel as we go forward. and looks like as we look at the weekend, a little reenforcing shot comes in to keep the temperatures having you in the mood for a spiced pumpkin latte. we had

one time with these temperatures. jim hates it. fox 5 seven-day forecast, look how nice the weather will be going forward. even into monday, we start with sunshine and then start getting clouds. but will we see some of irma's remnants? if it stays on the path that it's on, we could see some of that rain in here on tuesday and maybe wednesday with temperature s in the low to mid 70's. it could be more impactful if it shifts to the east. plenty to keep track of but enjoy the next four days, they look beautiful here locally. sarah and jim >> pumpkin spice latte weather. there you go, jim >> pass, hard pass it's definitely football weather, the redskins opened against the eagles without one of here defensive starts, who's contemplating retirement at 22 >> brody logan is live in ashburn with more on this. this is sort of big mystery at the tail end of camp and beginning of
