12:20 pm
>> and in our area we have beautiful weather. >> yeah. >> it's crazy. we can't just share the good wealth. >> i wish we could share the wealth. we're getting a nice distribution where we had soaking rainfall on saturday. i know you had water in your basement but we're getting a long period to dry out. that's welcome relief. let's take a look outside. we'll start off with the allergy report because we still have high amounts of ragweed, pollen and believe it or not mold spores. the mold spe count is still high. that will go down as we head through the next couple of days. with the weather cam, we have a gorgeous shot here of the national mall and our day planner nothing but sunshine for the rest of the day. 83 at 3:00. we'll reach a high of 48 between 3:00 and 4:00 -- 84 between 3:00 and 4:00 p.m. clear skies tonight. 72 degrees by 9:00. right now 79. a few high clouds being reported at reagan national. the dew point is 50. so that dew point remains nice and comfortable. the relative humidity only 36%. so we're going to stay sunny. nice and warm today.
12:21 pm
warmer than yesterday. just perfect because we've cleared out that breeze that we had yesterday. overnight tonight it's not growing to get quite as cool as it did last night but it will still be cool enough to open up the windows and let in the fresh air. the gorgeous weather we have today is going to stick around for the entire rest of the workweek. i have nothing but sunshine to talk about. it's pretty amazing. it's not until sunday that we'll see the slightest chance for rain. current temperature is 77 degrees in leesburg, frederick, manassas. it's 75 in winchester and in culpeper as well. and it's 78 degrees at andrews. on our wide view of satellite and radar, you can see just how big the sprawling area of high pressure is. it's centered right near nashville. and that is giving us a south and southwesterly flow as we head through the next couple of days. much needed rain for these areas that have had the fire weather danger for weeks and weeks on end. unfortunately, though, it's too much at once in some spots and here along the east coast, we are completely high and dry. that's the way it's going to stay for the next couple of
12:22 pm
days. so our forecast, we're looking at the beautiful dry weather that we have today sticking around for the next several days. this high of # 1 in win chest -- 81 in winchester is pretty much what you're going to expect the next couple of days. 84 in downtown washington and 82 in frederick. overnight tonight as i mentioned before, you can open up the windows, let in that fresh air. 55 in leesburg and gaithersburg. 58 in pax river. 55 in fredricksburg. 63 in downtown washington. green weather alerts for the next three days. that's no big surprise. lots of sunshine staying with us. the humidity stays in check till at least thursday. highs of 86 degrees both tomorrow and on thursday. in the first alert seven-day forecast, just a few clouds entering the picture by saturday. also going to get a little bit more humid with a high near 90 degrees on saturday. a sprinkle or a shower as this cold front approaches on sunday. and then it lingers on monday knocking high temperatures back down into the
