7:43 am
there is cooler air behind this. so we are going to see a significant cooldown temperature-wise tomorrow versus what we're going to see this afternoon. so our yellow weather alert main time frame is about noon time today through 7:00 early this evening. much cooler and breezy tomorrow with an isolated shower. then a nice monday. rain returns shortly after that into your tuesday. so it's going to be pretty short lived in terms of the nice, quiet weather. here is your day planner today showing a nice morning. 2:00 p.m., around the metro area, we will start to see showers and storms. they will happen close tore i- 81. later this afternoon, we continue with the shower and storm chances and it will clear out by later this evening. so it's only going to be about a 3-hour time frame when we're seeing showers and storms for your particular area. and you can track that all by downloading our wusa 9 app. so when you have outdoor plans you can track the showers

your phone, move inside briefly and then move back outside and enjoy the rest of your weekend. futurecast shows the morning quiet. in the afternoon hours, here come the showers from the west. they're right over the i-95 corridor. there will be brief moderate to heavy rainfall possible within some of these and some gusty winds. i don't think this is a setup where we will see severe weather across much of the region. just note that because we have a little more heating happening this morning with that sunshine, it will pack a punch this afternoon. we will continue to see these lingering into 6:00 p.m. later this evening, the clouds clear out and that makes for a breezy but clearing later evening hour. let's talk about temperatures. highs this afternoon are going to be running right around 70 degrees closer to frederick and winchester. it will be around 73 in washington. warmer to the south and east. closer to 77 in fredericksburg. look at the difference
7:45 am
temperatures tomorrow afternoon versus today. tomorrow, we're going to be struggling to get to 60. and the winds will be breezy tomorrow afternoon. so it will feel like we're in the 50s throughout the entire afternoon. i'm forecasting around 61 in d.c. further north and west, you're going to be in the 50s tomorrow. around 57 in frederick where we have the last day of the greek festival at the church there. we are going to stay in the low 60s in arlington for a taste of arlington. andrew will be around 60 degrees tomorrow afternoon. now, with the cool air, we're expecting a few chilly nights ahead. look at the cooler temperatures sunday night into monday morning. a lot of spots running around the upper 30s, low 40s. about 45 inside the metro area. but it will certainly be chilly. now, the next three days show that cooldown. today we're in the 70s. tomorrow low 60s at best. but your monday looks nice. there's the turn-around.
