nd showers could be unsettled. temperatures tonight will be dropping in the 70s, though. here's the max hd forect. fair skies at 11:00. just gorgeous. 73 degrees out there. early tomorrow morning we should wakeup tpretty much full sunshine. there could be a couple of high clouds and that's about it. temperature in the city 68 but lower to mid-60s in the suburbs and tonight in the suburbs it will be overnight where we will bottom out in the mid to upper 50s for some of you. mostly sunny tomorrow at noon. temperature about 80 degrees. actually tomorrow's temperature looks like today. where we will warm it up to the middle 80s. 83 in the city now. 80 for baltimore. 84 dulles. a lot of in the information just didn't happen to come in. sorry. but you know frederick and fredericksburg and harrissonburg are all in the middle 80s out there. high pressure has taken over. last week's storm system got the boot or the yank of whatever you want to say and

showers. okay? i can't tell you where that front will be exactly. it may be right on top of the metro or a little farther to the south and that's where the concentration of the greatest showers will be. overnight fair skies. 60s in the city. middle 60s here in dc. front royal is back down in the upper 0s. and look at tomorrow, warm, a lot of sunshine and temperatures in the 80s. so a lot like today. the humidity stays in check, too. even though we are nice and warm it is not going to be uncomfortable. a few clouds late in the afternoon but we should be good. and i should say there is a slight chance that tomorrow evening we could have a scattered shower. once we get to wednesday all bets are off. clouds come in and a chance of showers. not as bad as last week but still, you know, not perfect. >> think positive. >> thank you, gary. talk of the town on tmz today. that outburst everyone is talking about. kanye west hayeking taylor swift's acceptance speech.
