>> although not that bad now, it is not doing the drizzle mist thing, i think that will probably have to wait few more hours, by the time you run out for your car tonight? >> ya. headed out to dinner. >> it is dry. most places reporting cloudy conditions, little drizzle err year, but i have to say on balance this weekend is going to feel a little bit on the soggy side. and i think sunday will feel weather, obviously, than saturday, we'll show you why in a moment. but it is our weather headline tonight, as we aren't looking at drizzle right now, but we definitely do want you to know that specially saturday night, into sunday, looks like kind of wet period. this is orthodox easter, a lot of people celebrating, having services outside, as well, so that might be problematic, and might need to plan b. tonight, our departing showers have left us with a good bank of clouds, they're thinner out through west virginia, and we will watch the slow approach of another area of low pressure, that gets in here late tomorrow night. so, temperatures have been the big story, we are once
and you can see why. those east winds, people have been asking me why are we in this pattern again? boundary, frontal boundary slip to the south. stalled out. and so we're sampling the ocean air it, loads us up on the moisture, the clouds, the drizzle, the mist, and with that stalled boundary down to the southwaves of low pressure ride along it, bring us some rounds of light rain. your planner tonight, i am going to keep it dry for 7:00. 55 degrees, by the time we get to 9:00 i think some patches of drizzle begin to develop again. and there could be some light showers, by 11:00 at 52. so if you are going out tonight, keep the umbrella handy, and that goes for tomorrow night, as well. saturday, a lot of clouds, patchy, drizzle, the showers that you see here i think hold off until pretty late tomorrow night. 10:00 or 11:00. 62 degrees for saturday, let's keep our fingers crossed that will be one of the warmest days this week. sunday we've got rain, maybe some rumbles every thunder in the forecast, looks like this may be our weather period sunday morning, moderate to heavy rain, we should hit 68 greets, we could be warmer than this.
we think this front down to the south, which has been stalled, may try to move north. now, if it does that, we could have few more thunderstorms, as women. so evening rain saturday, high pressure will block it out, little bit longer, but then gets out of the way. here comes our frontal boundery for rain, maybe moderate rain, at times, going into sunday, and again if this warmfront is able to clear our area, we could get into the 70s, could also get bit more unstable with any sunshine that we might see. leading to the possibility of stronger more widespread storms. i want to show you tonight couple of spotty patches of drizzle or light rain. definitely not wash out. but just enough to make it annoying tomorrow morning could start out dry, patches of rain or dizzle, most of the day is dry. but again, drizzle doesn't show up on our future cast very well. so 11:00, here comes our new batch of rain, tan rains hard into the first part of the morning, by 8:00 a.m., it is starting to chase on out. should have few dry hours in the afternoon, m
sunshine, too, and then we see our future cast developing, another line of some showers around, a . , and there could be even -- could last until midnight or so, and could even be rumble every under this nerve there if this our warmfront is able to get to the north. the marginal risk for some possible isolated severe weather is down to our south. but let me tell if you this front were to get to our north then we would all be in the marginal risk so we will watch the weekend forecast for you, but i think you have the idea, little rain the way. fox5 accuweather seven day forecast, maybe we pick up helpful inch of rain before we get to sunday afternoon, and that would be wonderful, because we don't want to see those brush fires popping up again next week. do we change it up a little bit? fewer chances for showers, temperatures recover little bit. but as you can see there, i've still got this active jet stream that is grabbing gulf moisture and bringing little bit by every day. so, you know, we had two month of dry weather, maybe have few weeks of weather than average conditions. >> chance of rain every day. >> april showers, getting ready for our
>> off by the april showers month, so now we will have our may showers, june flowers. >> something like that. >> hey, before we go to the break, want to say congratulates toss shawn yancy. can you holdup the magazine? she is featured in bethesda magazine may-june issue just about to come out on the stands. >> should be out actually maybe right now, get the digital version on line. i was honored when the magazine called, they want to do special feature on my art for those of how don't know i am also an artist, i love to paint in my spare time, stay up late working on weekends doing this, in the article, though, we talk about the paydays, we talk about my life growing up in indianna, the midwest, my family and my work family, my career here at fox5. those are some of my favorite piece and some of the pieces in my client's home of the please stop by, pick up copy of the magazine, you will hit some secrets revealed about working with tony perkins. check it out. >> the scoop on page 250. >> it is really great piece. >> check it o thank you very much. thank up, guys. >> she is great
