loudoun. now, you get to northern montgomery county, then i'm thinking you might get an inch or so, same story around leesburg and lovett -- lucketts. but two to three. the higher elevations, you get to 1500 feet here into frederick and out on the mountain. cumberland, martinsburg, winchester, one to two. might see an isolated amount higher than that. doesn't look like a big storm except for main the mountains in far western maryland. today, in the 50s and dropping with the rain. the flood potential real this afternoon and this evening. tonight, we're in the 30s and upper 20s far north and west. still a breezy day. friday, 47. a cold saturday. army navy game, 39. main 40. mid-40s on sunday and decent monday and tuesday. well, we've got a nice, warm chocolate treat for you coming up when 9news now at noon rurns.
