if you get outside today where we were enjoying a mild day, temperatures climbing in the 70s this evening. a winter storm dumped up to 18 inches of snow across the state. and of course the cold weather and the snow here. and they will need this kind of weather as they need to get out. >> yeah. that will be the chilly airport. the great play time for them. >> and we will see those canines on out there enjoying the snow as well. >> that begs the question. are we going to see anything? one of the early models.
what do they say? >> we'll keep them out of the forecast for the next seven days. and i'm sure beyond that as well. >> okay, good. you're going to keep things mostly dry, but we do have some rain to talk about as well. and it is nice and dry and take a look at our headquarters here in tysons as it will be a nice mild night. it is still 6 it degrees. that's warmer than the normal high temperature at this time of the year. the dew point at 41 and out of the south-southeast. the humidity is 46%. the pressure, 30.41 inches right now. so a very pleasant night is setting up shop. it is not going to go away overnight tonight. as we start the day tomorrow, we'll have sunshine, but then the clouds build in later on in the day. we'll keep it dry through, i'll say the whole holiday weekend. and because it is not after sunset that we will start to bring in those showers. we could have heavy rain in the forecast as well. the cold front on the way to
have some pretty powerful stuff going with it. right now 63 degrees in leesburg. 57 in annapolis and easton and milder in the mountains where it is 61 degrees. that's a pretty good mild air for this time of the year. take a look at our satellite and radar. the clouds are pushing towards us. that's what we're going to see first tomorrow afternoon and early evening. but then we'll see some of the rain arrive with the cold front. this is the same storm system that brought the snow that you just saw here in bruce's video there from north dakota. we're not going to see any snow with this storm system. just too warm. but as they move through, you'll see plenty of showers. you might hear a few rumbles of thunder on monday night or early tuesday morning. now overnight tonight, mostly clear skies. not too cool. just light breezes. it will be comfortable with the low 41 degrees in the outlining suburbs. winds are out of the southwest at 10 miles per hour. tomorrow morning it will still be mostly sunny. a nice start for the day. a little bit breezier though with temperatures in the 40s
and the50s. coming southwesterly at 10 to 15. in the afternoon the breezes pick up. 10 to 20 miles per hour out of the south highs. 60 to 66. still a little above normal for this time of the year. we'll see that cold front arrive as we head into the evening. here's a look at the zones for tomorrow. we're going to keep it mild because the front does not arrive until after sunset. during the day, 56 in martinsburg. 65 in manassas as well and 62 degrees in winchester. a little bit breezier in front of the frontal package, so you will see those winds coming out of the south during the day. so it might get a little choppy on the bay. 64 in baltimore and downtown d.c. as well. and we'll get up to 6 a degrees for you. over the next few days. still going code green. most of the rain, they will be during the overnight hours where a lot of people are out on the road. so we're going to go code green for monday and tuesday and wednesday and a big drop in temperatures here from 6 a to
monday at 56 -- 54. we're going to keep things dry after the front passes for a few days here. lots of sunshine returning. but temperatures, they will be on the chilly side, back into the mid-50s. next weekend, we're watching a possible developing coastal storm. i don't want anyone to be frightened by that. just a chance for the showers it looks like most of the shower will be staying offshore, dampening things just a little bit for them and the redskins game. the temperatures, they were remaining in the mid-50s, which will be below normal for this time of the year. this warm up, it was short lived. >> okay. >> well, i thought the redskins could warm up too. >> yeah. maybe. >> and they got a big game coming up against philly next week. of course, taking them on. just huge games coming up in the nfc east and the afc talking about the ravens in just a second. and they could take a big page from the ravens for a lot of reasons. oakland, well, they will make any team feel good about themselves. and wait until you see how, you
all right, ravens don't lose at home unlike the redskins who only won one game at the last year and a half. baltimore, 14 for their last 14 at mmt bank stadium. i'll tell you what, this is what you would expect from oakland. falling over themselves on 4th down. and then the interception by paul krueger and it was all baltimore from there. ray rice the seven yarder. they took that for their career.
and smith, look out going deep. 67 yards for him. making it 34-10. on it was 21-17 and the ravens with a fake field goal? wow, that was the topic of conversation. and he scores on the seven yarder there. and then to jones. he's got legs and he knows how to use them. a great kick off return. franchise record for55 points. but for the ravens, they will win 55 to 20. >> on the offense you always want to score. that's the ball. we're able to score those touchdowns. and that's how you end up having a huge game. so we need to continue to play like this. this is great football. that is as close as 60 minutes as a team that we will need to play all year long. >> yeah. and they will assess it next week. the bengals and the giants. they have a nice young football team. this is one of those guys. he's one of the best wide receivers in the league. how do you not cover him?
he scored a touchdown on every game this season except for week one. 56-yard bomb there. and a nice young quarterback, this guy was just good throwing four touchdowns. maybe the best deal of the day. the saints and the falcons. and we know about that natty ice right there. he was falling. and we know about this guy right here. he'll fight his way to the end zone and then, of course, he's going to dunk it. they fell back late, but he cannot make the catch. and a rare drop for them. falling 31-27 for the falcons now, 8-1. and good stuff there in the nfl. all right from new jersey to houston, the playoff train that will be continuing for d.c. united. they will leave a bad taste in the mouth for the players and the fans the last time they met. that will be equivalent to a blow out in whatever sport that you will be able to choose to
follow. and today the first leg of the eastern conference finals. d.c. united. they are traveling everywhere to houston in the 68th minute. what are you talking about willis? make the big -- making the big save. and houston, they will take it 3-1 for another blowout. that means d.c. united will need to win two goals by next sunday. and that will be the d.c. championship in germantown against north carolina. the 67th minute. and the 62nd minute, excuse me. the final one. and that is a sweet move in the box. maryland wins 2-1. they know it's a big win against a very good team. [ cheering ] >> and yes, they are up against a great team and we have played in their fifth ac championship. two of them against virginia and north carolina. and so when you can get a result against the great program like north carolina. you've got to cherish it and we will cherish this one. >> way to go, coach. big overtime game coming up
tonight. you'll see it there. football ravens, redskins. and they will be playing tonight. great stuff. >> and they won one home game in the last year and a half. >> they cannot get it done. >> all right, do you want to recap for it? >> yeah, it will still be nice tomorrow. not quite as warm as it was today. 65 degrees and breezy. a cold front is moving through. that's going to stir up the breezes. most of the heavier rain will be during the overnight hours when you'll be speaking. >> yeah, thank you. thank you for watching. we'll see you back here at 11:00. bye.
