the approach. you saw it at the beginning of the show on doppler 9,000, we have a lot of clouds in place. those clouds will remain with us for most of the day and another round of showers and thunderstorms will develop this afternoon. high temperatures in the mid 80s today. more rain for friday. but what about that all important fourth of july holiday? we'll have the forecast coming up in
degrees right now in charlottesville. 68 at andrews. we're going to see cloud cover really hanging on throughout much of the day. a little bit of a peek of sunshine from time to time. but that little bit of sunshine will provide the instability that gets showers and thunderstorms rolling again. plus, there's an area of low pressure on the way for friday. we'll keep that instability in the forecast not only today, but also tomorrow. 79 degrees at 1:00. 84 at 3:00. and we'll reach a high of 85 degrees around 4:00 p.m. this afternoon. cooler temperatures tomorrow, but then a nice weekend on tap. we'll talk about it in the first alert seven-day. time for time saver traffic. >> for those of you in prince georges county, good morning to you, no issues on 50 this morning. free and clear on westbound and eastbound side. bw parkway 95 on the maryland side free and clear of any problems and the topside of the beltway in college park and parts of silver spring, no issues this morning. we're off to a great start. southern maryland, all lanes are open on 301 at route 5. no issues for you this morning.
always watching. alms tracking. wusa9's first alert weather. d.c.'s most accurate. >> 6:15, we are tracking some rain showers in our area. >> moving right through the district, and starting off to be light, but heavy pretty soon. so, grab the umbrella and probably an extra couple minutes. we'll have showers and the chance for showers and thunderstorms is going to stick around throughout today and tomorrow. our best rain chances setting us up for a better fourth of july weekend. take a look at our michael and son camera. the clouds are in place. you can't see rain just yet, but it's coming. temperatures are comfortable. 74 degrees. we're going to head to the mid 80s, so the clouds are here and so is rain. it will keep us below average until sunday. our temperatures are going to be a few degrees below average. tomorrow will be our coolest day. doppler 9,000 is very busy. we have good downpours, but not tracking any lightning in the
region right now. here are the downpours. just some light rain as you head through the eastern parts. as you head back to the west through just north of alexandria, these will slide right on over and the chance for rain will kind of fall behind it as well. these showers off to the north and west have been pouring for areas along 270 north of germantown, south of frederic, but back on to the west, it continues to have light rain following the heavier downpours. i expect rain on and off today really. our boundary setting up farther south of us is stalled out. that leaves a nice little platform for some of these showers to just push on through for today and tomorrow before we see things settle down a little bit. here's a look at your forecast. your future cast, and really it's the idea, are we going to have passing showers not only today, but tomorrow. we really don't want to take any pinpoint of an exact time or place throughout the next couple of days.
keep the umbrella with you. 85 for today. 80 for tomorrow. by saturday, we'll be dryer, a few showers here or there. but i think the fireworks are going to be nice. by sunday, dryer, near 90 for monday and tuesday. all right, larry, what do you got going on? >> looks like we have issues on metro on the red line for you this morning. we have single tracking going on between medical center because of an earlier issue outside of tenlytown. we can expect delays in both directions this morning. if you're going to be traveling on i-270, as we just heard from allison, watch out for rain in the forecast there, but also slippery roads as well. you want to decrease the speed, increase the distance between you and the driver. from middle brook road to the beltway, 13 minute commute this morning. no issues on 66. all lanes are open. traffic flowing freely. you're looking at a 19 minute commute. for those of you making the

fixed. the bad news is that the two lanes are having to be shared by both northbound and southbound traffic. that's because the water main break has been fixed, but the road above it needs to be paveed. it's only going to get worse, at least we are better off than we were yesterday. take a look at this video. you can see water was covering the roads. more than 2 million-gallons of water burst through the road flooding the streets. the pipe that burst was 58 years old and several homes had to be evacuated and businesses were closed. one doctor here had to send all of his patients home and water flooded his office. >> we had to cancel the afternoon hours. i'm not sure what's going to happen. it's devastating. i'm fed up. >> reporter: he is fed up because this is the second time this has happened to his business.
