you want to keep an eye to the sky if you see dark clouds coming, you hear thunder, go inside. it should clear the entire area by around 9:00 tomorrow night. then we can start to settle down. once again, could produce some damage. we want to watch outer for that. high clouds tomorrow morning, a nice start. temperatures 64 to 72. any games that you have tomorrow, even the nats game at 1:00, will have no problem getting in. you may be leaving, however, when storms do move in. increasing clouds with possible severe storms tomorrow and damaging winds. high temperatures into the mid 80s. like i said, we get through those storms tomorrow and look at the nice weather coming our way. one of the best stretches of weather we have seen in probably a couple of months. we need it. we'll get nice and cool as we start next week. >> we've earned it. >> and we're going to earn it tomorrow too. just be prepared for those storms. coming up in sports, doug, you were there. stephen strasburg's arm didn't
