6:48 am
great. and most of your early afternoon looks good. as during that afternoon and evening time frame, we are going to see a couple of pop you are showers and thunderstorms for freakness as well. that's because it's warm a very summer-like pattern as this warm front kind of lingers around. by 5:00 we have some showers and thunderstorms. it's pretty isolated. some areas will be able to dodge them but once you get understood one of the thunderstorms you could have some pretty good rainfall out there. as we head through the overnight hours and another round of showers will kind of push on through. our rain chances are with us until about tuesday morning. and until a cold front kicks on out. sunday another chance for rain and thunderstorm during the afternoon. still warm and muggy out there into the mid to upper 80s. i think sunday we have a slightly better chance for rain than on saturday. 78 degrees today. 85 for tomorrow. 86 for sunday. as we head to next week, another chance for rain on monday. and tuesday morning. then comes that front i just mentioned. and it kicks everything out so the nats' game on tuesday, that's at 7:00. so i think we'll be fine for
