amazing video out there. i mentioned how our skies looked like florida. here's a proof in the pictures out here. low base cumulus clouds bubbling up with that marine shore on flow. that's the reason the sky looks like it does. a very pretty sky around town. 78 in east washington and a wind at 14 miles per hour. that's bringing the marine layer off the ocean. temperatures generally now backing down into the mid and upper 70s pretty much areawide, so as you make your plan for your sunday evening, clouds on the increase, getting a little bit cooler. by 9:00, temperatures in the low 70s and showers becoming ever more likely as we get into the 9:00, 10:00, 11:00 time frame, and nearly everyone will be wet tomorrow morning. you folks have seen random raindrops this afternoon. this is heading out to the southern end of the shenandoah valley right now. not a lot of heavy rain are that, but there is more rain offshore and that is coming on

only mid-70s tomorrow. shower chances linger monday, tuesday, and on into wednesday and thursday as well. but each day the rain chances get a little lower. by next weekend, memorial day weekend, 88 saturday and sunday. so pushing 90 degrees for the unofficial start of summer. >> good way to start it, yeah. thanks, chuck. coming up in sports, steven straussburg creates his own run support. was it enough to avoid a sweep ♪
how did they do? >> they did great. they did better than the last couple of games. thanks to steven strauss beburg and it wasn't just on the mound. he's hitting better than he's pitching these days. straussburg let down by his defense in his last start and there was a repeat of that today. top of the 2nd, brice harper for some reason calls off rookie tyler moore and then drops the ball. he probably should have let moore go after it, but that's all right, he's a rookie and he's going to get better. he would drive in betamite, and avery shoots one to the left,
and the orioles up 3-0. both runs in the inning were unearned. harper trying to make amends, nick markakis has a beat on it but can't quite hold onto the ball. it pops out and danny espinosa score a triple for harper. it is now a 3-2 game. now tied at 3 in the bottom of the 4th, way chen and jesus going deep. not going to get that one. his first home run of the year and the nationals take a 4-3 lead. next batter steven straussburg. how about back to back jacks. the first career home run for straussburg puts the nets at 5-3. his teammates are pumped. he had five major league home runs, two today, and afterwards much of the talk in the locker
room about straussburg's home run. >> it was great, but i know my place. i'm ain't real hitter out there so i'm not going to go out there and act like i do it all the time. just run around the bases and it was definitely a good feeling. i think i got one more home run than a lot of my friends back home now. >> we sit down there and fantasize about something like that as relievers. we don't get the opportunity to hit like the starters do, but any homer for a pitcher is awesome, so we're all very excited for him. >> he swings well in bp, i think all of our pitchers swing pretty well. i think it's great for him and he helped the team out. i think that was huge. >> brice harper on steven straussburg. you know normally when things with going well in business or sports or really anything, there's stability. well, things have been anything but stable for the miami heat as of late. who knew that chris bauch was so important? without their injured star, the heat have changed they're line-up again. the fourth line-up in four
