quite a bit of rain and could get quite a bit of wind too, with these storms that come through during the afternoon tomorrow. again, the storm system in two pieces the first part of your day tomorrow we will see the heavy rain so the rainfall intensity, going to need the really really big umbrella golf-size umbrella that can handle some wind as well as some downpours. let's go ahead and get the -- maybe we can get the monitors turned on ovehere guys. let's track the rain too. look at that hagerstown leesburg down toward d.c. waldorf and leonard up to where the line of showers is right now, advancing off to the east tracking it now as it heads along areas of 340 and toward 270. you can see it now, just shy of lubbocksville and around leesburg ready to make its way in. same thing, down to the south, rainfall rates now, just under a tenth of an inch per hour shy of clinton, down around waldorf, 301 wet for a while, too. again, if you don't have the rain yet, you will be seeing it soon. 63 now, heavy rain coming up by 9:00 as well as around 10 and
11:00 this evening, temperatures drop to the 50s, with enthey do not going to see the temperature drop much more after that. and as we head into tomorrow morning. here's a look the 8:00 you can see to the west the yellow, the orange showing up this is all some of the pockets of more moderate and heavy rain. culpepper areas through rappahannock we will see these areas of moderate and heavy rain make its way right over d.c. montgomery county. charles county. throughout the early morning hours. the wee early morning hours. by 7, 8:00 most of that is to the north and east but still will be quite a few big puddles left around the area still some lingering showers to take you through 8, 9:00 around the area. then we are going to get a break, the sun's gonna come out and that's not a good thing. the storm system, as it advances with the heating of the day, talk talking about storms firing about 4:00 hagerstown stan top, i-81 line advancing off to the east and between 4 and 9 p.m. where we could have some pretty heavy duty storms coming through the area that deliver
some hail and some high gusts around 40 50 miles per hour maybe even some damming winds. after that we clear out. we are talking about some cooler temperatures and a week with cooler conditions. but one to two inches of rain anywhere from the purple to the red there, between one and two inches a short period of time sees i to see why we are under that flood watch that takes us through tomorrow morning. stormy companies, travel delays yes, the other thing is you will notice the humidity high, not just in the morning but throughout the day tomorrow temperature going up to 80 degrees tomorrow. so for the morning rush heavy rain possible ponding, for your evening there could be some delays as well meanwhile, your severe weather threat right through this area the entire area tomorrow is where we could be seeing high winds. your four-day forecast after tomorrow's high of 80 we cool off into the 60s, look at the end of the week early part of the weekend. temperatures right around 60 degrees, much cooler from that high of 80. heavy rain stormy companies,
the result was a little disappointing but i got to tell you, we don't have to worry about that whole illness thing anymore. >> i know. the series may kill caps fans what i'm concerned about, because all game it is like you're sit october edge of your seat, this was a tough one. let's start with the good one for the caps. braden holtby 40 saves in net. he was sick last game he is barely 100%. the unfortunate for the caps early injuries. it was a slugfest on the ice. it didn't help the caps were playing game three in long island at nassau coliseum. brendan holtby back between the pipes for the capitols after missing game two. he had the flu. so he is back, first period more bad news for the caps. eric fare going for the puck, slams into the boards crushed by kyle okay pos sew, left the
game didn't return no update on his company as of now. second period still scoreless here islanders on the attack holtby a big save they shoot and score. but check this one out, it's actually redirected out in from the and goes in. islanders a 1-0 lead. nassau coliseum up on their feet, going berserk. late third period caps looking to even things up mike green over to nicklas backstrom backy circling fire ins one, scores. backstrom goes off the cross bar and in. second goal of the series caps tie things up at 1. later in the period islanders not going for overtime. right in front, braden holtby says unh-unh, holt just pokes this one away huge save for him, 40 today, here we are in ot didn't take almost long shot easily played by holtby. caps try to clear it. first shot. oh holtby makes a save but he can't get it out.
you see right amount right, tavares puts it in net for the islanders. they go on to lead the series now, 2-1. they will play on tuesday, but for now, our carol maloney is in new york. >> reporter: overtime ended in no time but it didn't take long for the caps to look at the cup half full. >> a hostile environment, but played and we love it here you got to embrace it and just have fun out there and try to execute it. we just came up short toward the end. great job in the third period. we built some pressure on them. forechecking. you got the puck back. that's what you got to do we are battling harder. something to take with us to the third period. >> whipping here it's like -- it is going to be a tough game. but i think we have to play more intense and more, aggressive in
the zone. see the puck it's better for us. >> forget this one. understand what we need to do to be successful in the next one. we know the environment. we know the opposition. we will probably make a couple of subtle changes and have to go back at it >> trotz said he would give the guys a hour to pout about this one and then had to start thinking about game four. the challenge for tuesday, to start the game with the same intensity they finished this one. at nassau coliseum carol maloney, news4 sports. >> thanks carol. that will certainly be the key for the cap it is they want to be victorious this tuesday. all right, so the other game in up to this after into the nationals swept the series against the phillies. beste were two. dinard span back from injury and steven sprasburg pitched on the mound. spann, recovering from surgery, season debut. everybody is happy he is back. desmond rips one down the left
