12:18 pm
>> only a matter of time. you have to just hang on another day until they start to get here. up to 92 degrees right now. now our dew points which is kind of the measure of the moisture in the atmosphere, they have been not rising throughout the afternoon. they've been steady so far the morning. not feeling as humid outside right now versus what it foliation this morning. nonetheless today it's going to stay hot and we're going to be close to some records. now we talked about that record in d.c. being 95. dulles record 96. martinsburg 97 probably a little far out of reach. but the record in baltimore is 94 and you can see in the orange colors those are hi forecast highs for the area. d.c. i think we're going to tie that one. dulles might be a stretch to get to that point. not a lot of rain the morning. i just looked at the number of days we recorded rain per month. the month of may, 20 out of our 31 days. we had rain recorded. a lot odds those days we got like an inch of rain and ended
12:19 pm
whole month. this month we have had one day at reagan national that recorded any rain. it's just a trace. so things have really dried out in ha hurry. when are we going to see rain returning? it creeps back in as we go throughout the week. now i'll tell you right now, there's no promise of seeing any good dousing inch soaker of rain coming this way. but there's a few afternoons where we could see some good storm chances. all right futurecast tomorrow the first day we see any chance of a popup shower. i'm calling this isolated. most of us end up staying dry tomorrow. it's still very hot. it's still very humid outside tomorrow. we'll see heat index values tomorrow higher than today. because humidity will be up a bit. so heat index tomorrow could get as high as about 99 degrees. but our next cold front starts to push in on wednesday. and this is a look at future radar going into wednesday afternoon. you can see this 4:00. this is a little more than i think we're actually going to see but the idea is we actually have a pretty easy chance of getting some scattered showers and even a few thunderstorm
12:20 pm
so hopefully that will start to add some rain to the ground that's really drying out. you can see rain chances day by day. today we're dry. tomorrow, just an isolated shower or thunderstorm. wednesday scattered showers and storms. then we'll keep those storm chances kind of trickled in there like a typical summer- like pattern. but the rest of the week. we'll see a few showers and storms each afternoon. if you get one you get one. if you don't you have to wait until the next day. so the heat is going to continue for two more days. 95 today. very hot. no clouds. air quality alert continues. so don't spend a lot of time outside. 88 degrees with scattered showers and storms on wednesday. and down to 82 on thursday, cooler with a few lingering showers but right back up to 09 degrees -- 90 degrees
