aczone gel may cause the serious side effect of methemoglobinemia, which decreases oxygen in your blood. stop taking aczone gel and get medical help right away if your lips, mouth, or nails turn grey or blue. talk to your doctor if you have g6pd deficiency. using benzoyl peroxide with aczone gel may cause skin or facial hair to temporarily turn yellow or orange where applied. common side effects of aczone gel include dryness and itching of treated skin. now, i have less acne to think about because i use aczone gel. you could pay as little as $15 for aczone gel. learn more at aczone.com aczone. prescription treatment. proven results.

all. satellite and radar showing sunshine. high clouds out ahead of the system. there's leading showers making it to roanoke area. and we'll time it out for you here with the fox future cast. i think we get the nats game okay this afternoon begins one and around game time ending, 4, 4:35 most showers have not made it to washington. once they do it will rain steadily as they increase into the overnight hours. watch the path of the tropical system intensify to washington and up to northern delaware and south jersey a.m. memorial day morning and that's heavy rain and imbedded thunderstorms! heaviest along the coast. absolute washout at the beaches won't happen when all the rain from new jersey to virginia beach. we might get breaks in washington as this is much more coastal system. but even instability showers later tomorrow afternoon and into early tuesday morning. so touch and go here in d.c.. rain in the morning.
but it's unsettled enough we have a chance for showers all day memorial day we clear out tuesday. >> it should bring us happy one to two inchs of rain not much an inch or show show from washington to annapolis anden hainesed eastern shore and out of our area to delaware and south jersey. temperatures outside right now comfortable and nice morning. 68 degrees in washington. and we'll make it to 83 later today with the sun giving way to clouds and again those showers arivering sometime during the evening hours you may have to put the grilling on hold. best to do it earlier. memorial day parade tomorrow 2:00 constitution avenue and watching for showers and storms that could interrupt it and not a definite. we may beth coming raindrops and the parade gets off okay. 7 day forecast 78 tomorrow with rain and thunderstorms. mostly sunny as we clear out tuesday. beautiful through the midweek and chance of showers and thunderstorms as we head towards the ends of the week.
