saturated. so, if we get any good rains early in the day, which could likely happen, mainly a little bit of isolated flash flooding. here is your friday and into early saturday morning. here is what i'm talking about, might be flash flood warnings issued around areas of washington county, maybe frederick county. prince william rains coming in early morning, now, with a much from noon on as we go into the afternoon and evening hours. the area coverage of those showers really diminishes greatly. drier up here, frederick maryland gatorsburg, the rain mainly south and really trending south by 6 or 7:00. you can, of course, see how the clouds is a. to thin. i think going to have late-day sunshine, only a 20 to 30% chance of a pop-up thunderstorm by the time we get to fireworks time. humid overcast, early on. fairly wet, 67, 72 going to go out to do that early morning run before you start eating keep that in mind, going to be a little wet. by grilling time, 2 to 6:00
