years ago have come to fruition. we hope they have it on the bookshelf, that is the go-do tobook to check the facts to get back to more informed debates where that is clear and what is the difference between medical facts. >> and i is to -- i have to ask you quickly, could this be perceived in your face? >> i hope not. i hope that they, like us, seek information and want knowledge and respect that and that is one of the strings of of our system in the united states. i hope they so that as a gift and support. >> sandwich power. >> that's right. >> i read it as a young girl, my mommy gave it to me. >> exactly. >> and thank you very much for being with us, cindy pearson. >> you're welcome. many parents go out of their way to give their kids organic food. the results of a new study just

complete perfection. the latter part in october and any time you have a bonus, don't get me wrong, it's going to be a nice week, and temperatures looking like this. 72 in up to and holding. gaithersburg is sitting at 66 and real, real pleasant out there and in terms of the evening forecast and technically it's not a lot to talk about. no problems and the temperatures in the upper 60s at 7:00 and dropping into the lower 60s by 9 clerk -- 9:00, and i think in the upper suburbs, in the 50s. chilly once the sun goes into the later evening hours and here we are, a few clouds by 6:00. and -- by 11:00, pardon me. with a temperature of 70 degrees. this is the setup and this is looks like it's above normal
temperatures all week long for the workweek and there is a few question marks into the weekend. and thanks to newly developed tropical storms to the south of us. believe it or not, tropical storms could affect our weekend forecast. on tuesday, 78 degrees and a few clouds tomorrow. the temperatures around 80 and some places will be up to ate degrees and especially south- southwest and we duplicate it for wednesday and the temperature might be warmer than the 70s and this is the set up right now. no clouds out there, perfectly clear skies and the relative humidity is real low and otherwise it's comfortable temperatures and to the west of us, can you see the clouds and showers into indiana now and
eventually into ohio. they will work in our direction overnight tonight and we'll see some of this tomorrow, i think, so more cloudiness is coming up tomorrow than today. i want to you look at the clouds here tomorrow morning at 8:00 a.m. and we'll be dry but we'll have clouds out there and that is not going to be completely cloudy. relative to the day, a few more clouds out there and by 7:00, i think we have a few clouds and the rain is to the north of us. from time to time, this is suggesting a real light shower passing through maryland tomorrow, and nothing we need to worry about. tonight, 55 degrees and clouds by sunrise out there. the clouds and sun tomorrow, the temperatures up into the upper 70s and a few even lower 80s and this is your accuweather seven-day forecast. real, real good and this is three 78s in a row. did die that? >> we get into friday.
the temperature of 74 degrees. you know on mondays, we talk about the weekend. >> yeah. >> and this weekend doesn't look too good and it's not clear to be perfectly nice. what is going happen? we have a newly formed tropical storm, an indicator of being sandy from down there and another tropical depression, number 19 that formed out in the atlantic. >> oh, boy. >> and -- . >> a lot of variables. >> for the halloween costumes. >> and maybe a cape. did you see this, a grand pro like none you have ever witnessed. from revving up the engines on power lawn mowers, that's right. in great britain over the weekend and there were three categories over two days. each race meant a set point for the drivers to face the challenge of slippery conditions in the mud and this is an annual event, i think the racers are hoping for drier conditions next year. more drama for lindsay
