last night to tony and shawn, we have some good news out of this. and it's that we're going to get great, beautiful green lawns and wonderful pretty flowers. >> that means i have to mow my lawn twice next week. >> yeah, probably. but just look at it as a good workout. >> that's true. >> put a positive spin on things. you know how i roll. there's the fog and clouds outside it's going to get worse as we move into tonight. some of you aren't seeing anything right now, some of you are experiencing a little bit of a light shower maybe or some drizzle. but it's going to become more wide spread before the night is over. so keep the umbrellas handy. that's the first thing on my weather headline for you. sunday, good news. it is not a total washout. and the week ahead is going to be unsettled and then we going to see temperatures on the rise. it's been on the cooler side, much cooler over the last couple of days but things are going to change there. let's take a look at the radar, this is where the main swath of
6:59 pm
this is going to be moving our way. some of you are right in that. take a look at that i-81 corridor there and as we head to the east just a little light shower and drizzle activity we are going to start to see this fill in once we start progressing into tonight because all this is going to move to the east. we're socked in with the clouds right now. they're not going anywhere at all. we're going to see fog develop in the overnight hours. this is going to be mainly what we're going to deal with overnight and into the first part of your sunday. as i said, sunday is not a total washout. highs today, oh, they were chilly. same as yesterday, in the 50s. we should be about 71 degrees much so we are way off the mark here. and this is because we've had this easterly flow coming in off the ocean so it's kept us kind of cool. things are going to reverse tomorrow because we're going to start to see more of a southerly flow and that always brings in some warmer air. we're in for a little bit of a warm-up. 57 degrees in the nation's capital, the same at
7:00 pm
56 at baltimore, 55 at frederick and dulles and mannasas and 53 degrees to the west at martinsburg. you're overnight lows tonight expect to be prime rarely in the city in the 50s. it will be a little warmer to the south, low 60s there. 58 at dulles, 56 degrees at hagers town and 60 degrees at culpeper. and as we take a look at what we're going to be dealing with in terms of highs tomorrow, we're going to get that warmer air advantage. so here we are in the upper 60s and the low 7 0s. but we're still going to have the wet weather. i'm talking about showers in the early part of the day tomorrow with the fog, and then we're going to see a bit of a break. but for tonight it's going to be cool, it's going to be drizzly, we're going to see the rain move in in the overnight hours and when we get into tomorrow, we'll get a break by the afternoon and then we're going to see the showers push in all over again as this frontal system moves more to the north. so i'm going to say anywhere from about maybe up to about 2:00 and then maybe from 2:00 to
