12:18 pm
to 77 for the mid hour high. back to 70 by 7:00. that will be the sunset tonight. tomorrow the panel will be dark at 7:00 and 9:00 partly cloudy, 67 degrees. won't be as chilly tonight. we'll stop in the upper 50s in town to 50, 49 in the cold spots. high thin clouds coming up through new jersey and pennsylvania. clouds thickening up a little bit, especially the mountains of west virginia and garrett county see something cloud cover now. we have plenty of sunshine and just a gorgeous day with 70 degrees and many readings like in fred rigs burke. we have it at andrews, upper gnarl borrow in the upper -- marlboro in the upper 60s to 70. 65 for annapolis. gaithersburg running at 730 degrees with -- at 70 degrees with leesburg. 72 for call peopler and -- culpeper and tappahannock. a great day on the bay. on our weather camera, sunshine. some of the high thin clouds making it a little hazy and murky, if you will.
12:19 pm
that's a beautiful 70. very dry air. the dew point is 42 so the relative humidity to that 70 is 36%. and right now a northeast wind at 7 miles an hour. that wind direction is important because it's bringing drier air and off the northeast, it's coming off the ocean. that will keep us from getting all that warm. storm system out to the west and southwest of us throwing some showers through the carolinas, southern west virginia, southwestern virginia, but trying to come into this high pressure here, that's going to be very difficult for the system as it moves off toward the east, it's actually going to give a nudge to the south. again the north easterly winds with the drier air, the cool air, there's nothing but a few clouds coming through. here we are at 6:00 a.m. so tonight partly cloudy. that's one reason, mostly cloudy, we won't be as cool tomorrow. the clouds will act like a blanket. the middle of date more sun in the afternoon -- middle of the day more sun. in the afternoon more sun. still a northeasterly wind which may knock down the temperatures a few degrees as we go into the weekend. but the system stays off shore.
12:20 pm
as far as any rain chances, they stay real low. tonight we'll deep into the upper 50s. after a beautiful 77, tomorrow still looks great. again about 77. a very nice day. i think a few more clouds in the morning than the afternoon but, you know, not going to sweat that. 59 degrees tomorrow night. again the low 50s north and west. friday just a touch cooler with temperature 74. as we head to the weekend, not much change. slight chance after shower come monday with a cold front but there's not a lot of moisture to work with. rain chances stay low and tuesday still looks nice with a high of 75. got some recipes for a healthy breakfast when you're on the run coming up when wusa9

12:24 pm
we know breakfast is probably the most important meal of the day and when a student has a nutritious breakfast, they're able to focus better in school. very dietician isabel with me and she's brought some selections of how breakfast can be easy, nutritious and quick. >> that's right. this time of year, the excitement of back to school time is over and parents sometimes realize it's hard to get your kids out of the door sometimes with a healthy breakfast. so as a dietician, i recommend three of the side food groups at least for a breakfast. i'm show you an example of what i mean but i also want to make sure you include a protein. protein can be some milk, cheese, yogurt. it can be from eggs. obviously it can be from meat but can be nuts, beans, even soy or tofu so any of those things along with at least two more food groups like grains and fruit. >> that's the first time i've heard of that.
12:25 pm
protein is important. >> right. because you don't want just the energy when they get out the door. you want to make sure they last till lunch time so they're fueled all morning. so take an example. here's a regular oatmeal, great on a cool morning. got to get some good fiber and energy it but if you make that with water and send your kids to school with that it's not really that much. it doesn't balance out with more food groups. so if you -- you can make it with water or milk to make it creamier. you could add milk to it. you can mix in yogurt. you can mix in dried fruit. then you have at least three food groups. that's what i mean. there are going to be sometimes when your kid is just tired of traditional breakfast foods. so it doesn't have to be. it could be left over pizza or a breakfast pizza. sometimes kids like the ideas of pizza and they'll eat anything if it says pizza. you can still make a sand witch
12:26 pm
witch. -- sandwich. or make a sand witch out of peanut butter and banana. you put it on a waffle, burrito, bread. extra points, mom, if you also get a whole grain in there. >> okay. >> or there will be times when you just need -- kids are not hungry and they just neat a meal in a glass -- need a meal in a glass. smoothie is a good time for that. frozen fruit make it is better because it make it is nice and thick. yogurt. or if you can't seem to please anybody any morning, maybe put out different cereals, different flavors of yogurt and have them make their own fruit and yogurt buffet. got the fruit in it. you can get the grains in there with the cereal. you have the yogurt. that's dairy. so you have the three food groups including a protein and it's delicious and quick. >> but don't let that student get out the door without having that important nutritious breakfast. thank you, isabel for being here. thank you for being here. don't forget to go to
12:27 pm come back and visit us at 5:00. have a great day. bye-bye.
