develop up towards shenandoah county. keep the umbrella andy for your morning commute and probably your afternoon commute as well. the cool down will come from at the labtic ocean. the winds will be coming in out of the east and that builds up a marine layer. not just tomorrow but likely on thursday we're going to be dealing with some rounds of showers and that will keep temperatures back in the normal range which is 70-degrees for this time of year. i still think we may be above that. this frontal boundary which is sliding to our south will keep d.c. area on the cool side, but if you you get far enough south into say central virginia you you you may still be in the 830s and that could touch off perhaps here and there a thun storm. i wanted to show you the futurecast so you can plan your day tomorrow. here comes the rape. some of that may be heavy in spots or at least moderate tomorrow morning for the commute . the noon hour as well as into the afternoon and evening maybe even as late a
11:00 and that's just tomorrow's rain. we do need this rain and a lot of you you have been telling me you you think it's just a little bit too hot, so hopely you you like the way this forecast is going. we have a few more ups and downs to get through within this next week. tony, over to you. thank you much. there is another twist in a hate-related incident at the university of maryland. investigators now say the man accused of spray painting a swastika inside a residents hall on the college park campus was a university employee. last week police charged ronald alfred sr. with malicious destruction of property. university officials say alfred is no longer an employee. and new to a fox5 followup. if your kids play on sports fields like this artificial turf fields in the district, listen up. more than a dozen fields managed by the city failed recent safety tests most of them were replaced or repaired, but fox5 wanted to know what kin
fields pose posed to the athletes. evan lambert is live tonight with the first look the at those reports. >>reporter: we wanted to know the exact results of those hardness tests the city does on turf fields. when officials told us 16 fields failed the tests they wouldn't give us the numbers. now we have them as a result of a public records request. fox5 has obtained this spreadsheet with the hardness testing results of the city's 52 artificial turf fields. it's called a g max test and essentially measures how much absorption is measured by the field versus the athlete's body it's done by a group called the american society group of test ing materials. it can be reduced if the g maximum is under 200. even the nfl maintains a standard of of less than 165. a 52 artificial fields tested this year in the district two tested a above 200g max exper
based on 19606s research. those fields, january i elementary and oyster elementary were replaced by city. but seven tests tested above 1656. several of those fields were repaired by the city , but two hardy middle school and a palisades rec center with not repaired or replacedded. even the vendor the city used to replace several fields in recent weeks says a field should never exceed 165. dr. andrew mack knit runs penn state's university turf grass science department. he says he's encouraged by the city's testing. i want to commend the sit sti for having a limit and going out and testing. you would be shocked at how uncommon that is in other municipalities across the united states. he warnings there isn't enough science to backup minor differences in g max numbers. he says the difference between 199 and 200
hope what happens in the future is that everybody realizes that if the fields are maintainedded properly that you you can keep these g max numbers even blow 1656. the question many parents have is is it safe to play on a field blow 200, but above one of five? district officials haven't answered that question. and in a statement to fox5 the department of general services which manages the fields says in part dgs adheres to the industry standards as set forth by the american society for testing and materials international. which establishes a g p max value of 200 for the maximum allowable limit for safety while other entity ts may offer recommendations, dgs recommends the international standards set forth by astm international. dg s \may\may reconsider the 200 standard for hardness. a work ing group meets tomorrow on the issue. there is also a public hearing on
