today, get ready for tomorrow. it will be much more noticeable and with that increase in humidity, it will leave thunderstorms popping up in the afternoon. not widespread, no the a wash-out but one or two could pass on through. maybe even have moderate rain with them. summer is going to continue to roll into town this weekend. of course, many people consider memorial day the unofficial start of summer, even though it won't officially start until later june when we astronomically switch to that with our summer sold. 86 at all three airports reported and slowly dropping but not quickly. most places are still in the mid 80's. dc is still at 86 degrees. i feel like i'm blending in with this map. and why so hot all of a sudden? has a lot to do with where blue h is for most of the month of may, it was up here to the north. now to the south. it pumps in a different wind direction and we're definitely feeling that southern
as well as the temperatures. now, we're going to keep moisture out of the forecast for awhile but we will have to watch some southern moisture as we head on into the weekend. but for this night, it will be clear, mild and very comfortable. wanted to show you when we talk about due points, and they get up around 65 degrees where they're going to be tomorrow, that's uncomfortable. so we're working with increased humidity and with this high pressure still pumping in the heat and the southwest breezes, that's where we'll cook up a few pop-up thunderstorms, not just tomorrow afternoon but also friday. you want to keep your fox 5 weather ap handy to make sure you're seeing those. we'll be here at 5:00, 6:00, 10:00 and 11 and all morning long they don't let you know when something is approaching as well as social media. let's plan your day tomorrow t looks like lots of sunshine to start our day and through the noon hour plenty of sunshine. when do we cook up thunderstorms tomorrow afternoon? it looks like it would begin from west to east after 3:00. and again this isn't widespread but one or two of those could be strong and
bit of small hail with them. we're not looking for much in the way of severe weather. you can see by that 10:00 that's moved on through. you're going to want to watch between 3:00 and 6:00 for a few passing pop-up thunderstorms tomorrow afternoon and we may do that again on friday afternoon, although it does appear as though there is as much activity on friday. let's take you forward with temperatures because tomorrow morning, we're going to get a jump start on the heat. it could be as warm as 74 degrees at 8:00 in the morning in dc. 68 for manassas and dulles. take this to the noon hour, 87. that's going to be a hot one. certainly today was very warm too. when you factor in that human, it will feel a little bit warmer. and by the time it's tony perkins tomorrow, we're back to the low 70's. definitely a hot one. as we look on the our holiday weekend, mike showed you this a few minutes ago but you saw this just a little bit ago. we got to watch with the possibility of a couple storms popping up sunday and monday. last stop, your seven-day forecast and we will continue to show you all of this. we need to get over the a

huge crowd though there behind police. but they're working to keep this crowd under control. i think it got a little bit more out of control just before we -- before we broke in. things seem to have gotten a little more under control. >> we, of course, will continue to follow that for you and bring you the latest as we head here to the 6:00. for a look ahead at that, let's head over to tony and sean now. >> we'll have more on that and other news including some pregnant former wal-mart employees are accusing the big box store of discrimination. why they're upset and the changes they want the company to make. also coming up at 6:00, windies is doing it and a former ceo says it's a lot cheaper than hiring people for $15 an hour, could robotic device soon replace fast food employees also we're going to have more on a controversial high school punishment, did a virginia school go too far when it suspended a dozen students for a
