accept par traitself from the mainline, the mainline normally starts to die out and that's exactly what we e seeing in montgomery county. so, montgomery county seeing some areas of heavy rain, loudoun county seeing this heavy rain but if you look north of the potomac, may not see as much in montgomery county. this will move through the d.c. metro area. when, take you back down. a lot of lightning associated with this. you can see behind this, not much going on. once this moves through, we are just about done for the rain as we move on through the rest of the night. 7:00, that's where we are talking about here. right around 7:30, 8:00 now, it says 8:00 this is more like 7:30 coming through the d.c. metro area between 7 and 7:30 i think through downtown, toward the redskins game tonight. i think it could be a problem for the skins game but going to get the game in, no problem. the rain will move out of there by around 8:30, 9:00, second half of the game should nobody problem at all. as this does move out, going to see much better companies in for the next few days but we still have that flash flood watch.
i'm not too concerned about this they are all moving, dying out. once again, not too concerned, something we will definitely continue to watch here the big deal, rainfall rates, an inch to two inches per hour. behind the line, where we have seen rain, look at the temperatures, 72, frederick, 76, martinsburg, ahead of the line, very warm and very moist air, so we could still see moist storms form, some on the stronger side, the rest of northern virginia, in toward portions of southern maryland, next couple of days, wow what a change. tomorrow, 87 degrees, plenty of sunshine, low humidity, saturday a beautiful sunshine, high 86, gets warm on sunday, back to 90, warm on monday, high temperature, 93, heat index above 95. then behind another cold front, not going to bring much in the way of storms but will bring us much more in the way of relief, next tuesday, wednesday and thursday looking great. we will continue to keep you posted, any more warnings coming out, there is another warping, i

storm center. >> thanks, doug. former virginia governor bob mcdonnell again is making an emergency appeal to the supreme court to try to stay out of prison. his move comes after the court of appeals ordered him to report to begin his sentence in jail. our northern virginia bureau reporter -- bureau chief, julie carey, a report with how soon mcdonnell could be locked up and what it means for his wife. >> we know when the fourth circuit court of appeals rejected bob mcdonnell's bid for a new trial or exoneration last month, it was silent on whether he should remain free as he pursued his legal challenge to the nation's highest court. but today, the appeals court issued this mandate, saying it's time to report to prison. and that led to this 49-page filing from mcdonnell's legal team asking the supreme court for a continued reprieve from prison. only the high court now stands between former virginia governor bob mcdonnell and prison. his conviction last year on
public corruption charges car race 24-month prison term, but he had been granted bond to remain free while he pursues legal challenges. this order issued today by the fourth circuit court of apeels can change that denying his bid for freedom t is a jolt for mcdonnell's friends. >> i've been practicing law for 28 years, i have seen lots of people go to jail but never had a friend of mine, a very close friend of mine, go to jail and, i mean it is heartbreaking really. >> reporter: mcdonnell issued a statement, reading, in part -- this federal prison in petersburg, near richmond is one of the places mcdone come wind up but legal experts say even if the supreme court turns down mcdonnell's request to remain free, he wouldn't report to prison right away. legal experts say it will be weeks, possibly even several months before the federal bureau of prisons decides where he should be housed. he is hope.
the u.s. supreme court will hear the case and permit him to stay out of prison. >> the supreme court looks at that time and think there is a chance of wing, thenner inther not going to want him to spend time in jail, that is not fair for an innocent person to spend time in jail. >> reporter: this legal scholar believe it is unlikely the high court will hear mcdonnell's appeal but agrees if they do, mcdonnell will probably avoid prison, for now. >> if they think there is a pretty interesting issue, if they think they may well take his case eventually, they may say it makes sense to let him stay free, particularly because his sentence is so short. >> reporter: legal analysts say the succession of court defeats for bob mcdonnell do not bode well for his wife, maureen's appeal. the fourth circuit hears from her lawyers and prosecutors in late october. >> all right, julie carey. more soul searching for the dug gar family of "19 kids and counting" after one of their kids made another admission after his e-mail was among one of thousands identified of the user of the cheating adultery

goals, vance, a lot of field goals. no touchdowns, either scoring drive with a touchdown or throwing for a touchdown. robert griffin's blood pressure might go up because we learned that trent williams isn't going to play, the pro bowl left tackle who always protects his blind side. you stay is precaution? >> precaution. see some of the young guys getting more reps today. the guys are warming up right now, kickoff about almost a half hour away here at fedex field. they have the tarp down on this field until about 5:00 this afternoon. it did rain earlier. we will see how the field holds up, a very strong chance of rain, like doug mentioned. everyone looking forward to seeing robert griffin and the offense, if they can put the ball in the end zone tonight, something the starters did not do last week in cleveland. >> the first offense was gonna get a lot more reps this upcoming game and zrit good defense, from what they did last year and everything. so, i think it will be a good
test for us and just see where our offense is at. >> we do have to, you know, move down the field and make place and finish the drives. preseason game number two where we are going to play a little bit longer, definitely want to keep our offense going and keep moving in the right direction. >> pierre, probably one of the more exciting and disappointing players last week, first series, robert griffin looking long and letting it fly, but a wide open pierre garcon cannot make the catch. it was one of the reasons griffin and garrison spent nearly 40 minutes after sunday's practice working on timing, just the two of them out there in the heat, trying to get better. chemistry is the key. >> i think with all the receivers, robert's comfort level is getting there it's coming, coming, and coming and comes with repetition and reserves to trust the ball is going to be in the air, that takes time, pierre is an excellent receiver, detail oriented, ryan grant is excellent, andre excellent with the details. he's got some guys next actually how to get there, now he has got
to get them the ball on time and that's coming. >> meanwhile, the bat for the backup quarterback position continues, colt mccoy and jay gruden says he has done good things in practice and see if he can continue that in the game, similar to kirk cousins in cleveland last week. cousins expected to play the fourth quarter this week by the way. four things to watch tonight, we have them four -- -- we have them for you. >> with all those injuries, you know guys are going to have to step up. we got our umbrellas $for the preseason home opener of the redskins and the lions. guys? >> did i hear somebody say

tonight, the fight of his life, an extraordinary show of courage and candor from former president jimmy carter speaking openly about cancer. the hidden melanoma on his brain holding on to faith and family saying his future is in god's hands. wildfire tragedy, firefighters killed, a mystery crash and overcome by raging flames and smoke now surrounding entire towns. aggressive, erratic winds making it increasingly dangerous on the front lines. fighting words, donald trump and jeb bush caught in an uproar over birthright citizenship and the use of a term people find offensive. and gas below $2 in a dozen states. why experts say it's falling so fast, and how low it could go.
