and, in fact, we've had some reports of flood warnings going up. some of those flash flood warnings will go until 3 a.m. we've had the light stuff and don't have much now, but i think this will come in our direction in the next number of hours. we'll watch for this. the air around d.c. is a bit more stable than in these regions, but wean so we'll add to our totals and we'll -- even so we'll add month to our togethers and we'll have more to add during the -- totals and we'll have more to add during the day tomorrow. we're about 75 degrees tomorrow and we've rolled in a thunderstorm. we have a little morning rain east of the city and if we break for sunshine, we'll pop some showers and thunderstorms in afternoon. wednesday also starts out dry. we get up to 81 degrees. there will be one more front coming on wednesday, a little reinforcing shot that could promote some showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon wednesday. i think it would be a fairly
10:50 pm
brief interruption. we dry out thursday, temperature 75 degrees and it's really looking great to end the week yet again. so we may be doing what we did last weekend again this weekend, at least the early indications are good. temperatures are not getting chilly tonight with the south wind still at 68 degrees. annapolis is still 70, quantico 72 degrees. so we will stay right around 65 degrees with these showers coming through overnight and temperatures staying mild thanks to that south wind. tomorrow more scattered showers, could be a thunderstorm in the mix at 75 degrees. i think the thunderstorms would be late morning into early afternoon. at 8 a.m. chance for some showers. the skies could brighten late morning to the noon hour and we get up to about 73 degrees. then after that we'll watch to see if we don't cook up a few thunderstorms and again a few more showers. i don't think it's kind of the steadier soaking tomorrow that we had today, but even so, still some good additional rain counting what we get tonight and during the day tomorrow
10:51 pm
into tomorrow night, perhaps in these blue areas another 1/2- inch to an inch of rain. in the green maybe 1/4 to 1/2- inch of rain coming into the rain buckets. model projection of specific cities and what we might be getting in d.c., about .8 of an inch of rain, maybe 1/2 for annapolis and heavier rain for hagerstown and cumberland. some of those folks have already had an inch of rain. so we may be picking up a nice sort of benefit in the rain bucket because we are about 5 inches below on the year. tomorrow we've got this frontal system. we'll have this area of low pressure slide through and a second one wednesday to keep us maybe in the soup for wednesday afternoon for another round. after that it's looking good. so 75 degrees tomorrow with some showers and storms to keep an eye out for. wednesday's temperature 81 with maybe an afternoon storm and then hang on for thursday, friday and saturday. everything is going to be lush and green and the preakness folks will be happy about that
