we could see manassas was already down there. manassas may be headed down to 42 degrees tonight. frederick could get to 40. we definitely call that chilly in the middle of may, 49 degrees d.c., quantico 51 and annapolis coming in at 48 degrees. as we look at satellite and radar, we mostly had clear skies, but we have a little patch of clouds traveling down through central virginia. there have been a couple sprinkles with that. that is moving away and we don't expect any additional. there's still a couple clouds and showers through pennsylvania, but this pattern is getting ready to depart. i'm showing you this wide view because this clear expanse is tomorrow's weather and saturday's weather. they're getting a nice drought busting rain across texas, this storm not slated to come our direction, but there is a frontal system up across the northern plains that will eventually travel in this direction on sunday. for tomorrow it's high pressure that is going to still be building in somewhat, still a little to our west, which is why we'll have a bit of a breeze tomorrow. we will eventually get mild,
10:51 pm
about 73 degrees tomorrow, and we'll have a lot of sunshine. that high gets right on top of us for saturday and saturday weather is looking spectacular as well. overnight fair skies, 49 in the city, low to mid-40s in the suburbs, so definitely a chilly start for your friday, but a sunny warmer day, temperature climbing to 73, still a noticeable breeze from the northwest 10 to 20, but maybe we can ditch those gusts to 30 during the day tomorrow. expect upper 40s and low 50s at 8 a.m. by noon we're up to 68 degrees and by 5:00 lots of sunshine and temperature of 72. rolling into the weekend we think we have a little warming trend to plan for, temperature saturday about 78 degrees, comfortable humidity, mostly sunny skies, sunday, though, clouds increasing in the afternoon. there could be a couple evening showers. i think after 7:00 or 8:00 the way things look now, so nothing to spoil mother's day. quick look at futurecast, clear skies tomorrow. we roll this into saturday, still looking good through the
10:52 pm
afternoon, possible that we get high clouds very late on saturday and on into sunday, but i wanted you to see any showers we do get mostly west and trying their best to hole off until later in the day. so -- hold off until later in the day, so looks like we're in good shape for this weekend. temperatures climbing into the mid-eventually upper 70s. next week, the front coming sunday that will get in here for sunday night will likely stall across our area. that mines monday, tuesday and maybe wednesday next week possibly a little -- means monday, tuesday and maybe wednesday next week possibly a little unsettled with showers. 73 is a bit below average. 75 is average now. we're getting closer to average. >> 2 degrees make a big difference for you there? >> no. it's good. >> she's just checking. did you see that face he gave me? >> just trying to figure out. >> thank you, sue. >> remember to download the fox 5 weather app. go to apple's app store, the android market, search for d.c. weather. it's also on our website.
