starting off on first alert doppler, yes it is gloomy out there. it is gray and drizzle diagnose y and temperatures are just not budging. we didn't think they would and they aren't. in fact they dropped a little bit now we're at 40 degrees and staying into the upper 40s, not much temperature change from this morning and not much temperature change into the overnight hours either. showers just continue to slowly slowly move off to the north and east, very dry air so this moisture has a lot to overcome as it makes its way off to the north. as it does so the beltway is pretty wet. now these are very light showers, not expecting a lot of rain today or tomorrow but the roads are going to be slick. right along 270 light sprinkles out there and the light rain will continue through this afternoon and have that futurecast in just a moment so yellow alerts today, tomorrow, and also through wednesday. by the time everything is all said and done we're talking about one to two inches of rain and the bulk comes on wednesday. i'll show you.
12:22 pm
we are going to be warmer for tuesday and wednesday into the mid 50s but still wet . the sun it does come back. it arrives on thursday and it sticks with us for awhile so for today through midnight tonight about a quarter of an inch of rain and then tomorrow about another quarter of an inch added on and then here it comes on wednesday. it gets worse before it gets better, we'll see an inch of rain for some areas a little farther or more to the south. here we are at 6:00 for your drive home pretty much exactly where it is right now except for it is slowly moving off to the north by 10:30 rain for everybody. it's very light and drizzle and light rain and that's the trend tomorrow morning as well through the midday. so for 7:30 it looks spotty and it is so the morning rush won't be as big of a concern as the midday, 10:00 dryer but then here comes lunch time and it's wet periods of rain. the winds are turning tomorrow and wednesday, that's why we are able to get to the 50s despite clouds and rain so for your drive home tuesday it
12:23 pm
looks better again. don't get your hopes up still raining come wednesday so we dry out into the overnight hours and then the second or the third batch of rain comes on wednesday. this one is with the cold front so here we go, 6:00 in the morning another yellow weather alert day so the drive in on wednesday will probably be the worst of each day. notice the yellow and orange farthesouth. lots of heavier rain if you head farther south through southern maryland and 8:30 in the morning it continues this is going to be a morning event on wednesday and it does kick out of here for wednesday evening. so time frame for the worst amount of rain is today, tonight, tomorrow midday and through parts of the morning and then wednesday morning. other than that it's just kind of spotty and cloudy. 46 today 54 for tomorrow 58 for wednesday, here comes the sun 52 on thursday and a little breezy thursday as well. we get to the mid to upper 50s it's going to be worth
