6:19 pm
warnings, since i last spoke with you, just few minute ago. so, your first clue is we're saying bye bye to the blue skies, and watching some of the huge cumulus anime bus clouds going up loaded with rain. here is the latest, talked about this little bit ago. severe thunderstorm warning until 6:30 for fairfax and prince william county boy do i think it is hailing, really hard down in that area. now we have new one. that storm has expanded so we have severe thunderstorm warning until 7:00 for the cities at fairfax falls church that will include portions every all of the counties. let me get out. arlington, fairfax, small portion every southwestern montgomery, and prince william county until 7:00. it is all from this same store though. and it really is loaded with lightning. but migrate err concern is the possibility that it is producing some hail on sort of the south and western flank of it, in fact, one of the tools we have here is the ability to look inside the storms and see if there is a hail core forming, right around the brent ville area, we think there may be some hail that
6:20 pm
2 inches in diameter. so that would be like a pingpong ball. that would not surprise us, because other storms have been able to do that down to our south and west. but that's going to dent your car. so if you can, try to get it covered up little bit. and maybe even some one inhale in the northern part of the county, not too far west of oakdone, one storm, and that's really pretty much the only thing we have here right now. because most everything else is down to our south and west. wherever one's under severe thunderstorm watch. but as i put this in motion to show you all of the lightning, i want you to look at the northern end of that, how quickly, because this is just looping for one hour, how fast everything is beginning to develop out to our south and west, south every front royal. so we expect to get a little busier before things settle down, and i would not even be surprised if we keep some of this rain in the area overnight. like 3:00 in the morning, i could see it still happening. just little while ago, storm prediction center did expand, severe thunderstorm watch to include the dc suburbs, again, a lot of activity will continue to develop in the big driver tonight is this fron
6:21 pm
air and this very warm unstable air that we have overhead. so we think potential for more to develop. process, at 7:00 tonight this is predict son whatever may happen over the next several hours, future cast, it still has a lot of activity at 10:00 tonight. specially through maryland, down through the northern neck, maybe the eastern suburbs of dc as well. a little bit of rain overnight, pausing at 4:00 in the morning, almost to the point where we've had too much rain now after going so long without much. brush fire danger but may add inch to inch and a half. i would not be surprised if we have flashflooding issues later tonight as well. tuesday morning for your commute, still be some rain that lingers in the area, but i think it will be much drier in the afternoon. and we could pop few more things late day, specially if we get little bit of sunshine tomorrow afternoon. but it really looks more like more clouds than anything else. the other thing that's going to be changing, as we go through this week, is it will be getting little bit cooler again, we got close to the upper 70s if not 80 degrees,
6:22 pm
culpeper 83, dc, 74 degrees, but it look like temperatures will head on back down into the 60s, and the front that comes through, on tuesday, is going to stall just little bit to our east. so that will allow more waves of low pressure to develop, and, while we have dry periods wednesday, another front is going to be approaching the area. so we've got so many front coming through here, i feel like we're running amtrak station here with these front. running the track and what you don't see now on this seven day forecast, is a whole lot of 80s. but 68 tomorrow. that's going to feel a lot colder with some showers. wednesday, about 68 degrees, scattered showers, possible. can't rule out showers even on thursday and friday. okay, this saturday, yeah, looks drier for mothers day on sunday, temperature every 75. right now, so far so good for the weekend, but definitely feeling like we're continuing much of what we had last week this week. >> here we go, we're ready for it. >> all right, good. >> thanks, sue. this is really cool. balance reason i mossee cope lands has her own
