[ laughter ] >> i went 94. and then i thought, well, i'll go 95. well, it was 94. it's okay! but we could have had three bullseyes this week. all right. 91 tomorrow! live look outside. it's still 82 degrees. that's not a haec. that's the -- heat index. that's the temperature. dew point is creeping up a little bit. winds southwest at about 10. so yellow weather alert tomorrow afternoon. a moderate risk especially south of i-66 and 60. almost a high risk of thunderstorms and heavy rain. so
tomorrow for thunderstorms in the afternoon. critical times, 2:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. a bit hot sunday with just isolated thunderstorms. so certainly that's the drier of the two days. so weekend's not a washout. it's summer, okay? and heating up again on monday. so forecast for the heat index. for tomorrow, early in the morning it's 7:00, feel like it's 80 downtown. it'll like 75 in rockville and silver springs. by 11:00, low 90s feels like. maybe upper 80s in gaithersburg. but fairly hot. not like wednesday. but still, by 5:00, heat index at low to mid-90s. 94 in fairfax. 95 in manassas. and by evening, maybe a muggy night tomorrow night. but i think the showers and storms will ends early in the night. this is the regular futurecast. showers, regular temps. by 8:00 a.m., upper 70s downtown. by noon, almost 90 downtown. upper 80s to the north and west. and
hagerstown. by 5:30, probably the best chance of a sort of organized line of showers and storms forming. weak cold front will move through. it'll put on the brakes and not clear us out completely. by 5:30, 6:00, 7:00, pretty good chance of a shower between frederiksberg and manassas. could produce heavy downpours. by 8:00, pretty much gone. temperatures still lag and linger in the upper 70s to low 80s. even by 10:00 tomorrow night. on the day planner, 70s to start and dry in the morning. 83 by 9:00. 87 by 11:00 and 90 by 1:00 p.m. so sunday, just an isolated storm. low 90s. monday, a little hotter. mid-90s with an isolated storm. next seven days, a golf day on monday. tuesday they're back on. showers and storms
with a cold front. maybe that could be our next yellow weather alert day. nice wednesday. thursday, warm but not humid. and then hot on friday but not humid. >> good mix we have going on there. >> yeah. it's july. >> it's july! >> hottest of the year! >> just a few hours ago, and the ace taking the hills tonight! >> dusty baker told his team before the brakes, don't turn off the pilot lights. keep the momentum going! they picked up where they left off. ♪ [ music ] >> plus, an

sacrificing himself. espinosa brings himself home for the lead. still same inning with another run packed on. michael taylor comes to the dish. blasts one 397 feet bringing strasburg home. 7th of the year. nats with the commanding 5-1 lead. he already left at 8th inning but a stellar performance. 1 run, 3 hits with 6 strikeouts. stras becomes the first national league pitcher since 1912 to start the season 13-0. it's a big risk but one apparently worth taking. kirk cousins and the burgundy and gold failed to degree to a deal by the deadline which means he'll have to settle for the $19.9 million franchise tag. yes, that's so bad. but he's gambling on himself. they are risking him walking away next season if he has a great year. here's a good note on cousins. he set a few season records
last season with a 68% completion percentage and led them to a division title. however, he has zero wins against a team with a winning record. kind of key. it will be fun to see how this season unfolds. second round of the open championships. the french flags flying at half mass on a rainy day in scotland. phil mickelson on still top of the leaderboard at 10 under. this one shows a little spin. look! so good! he just can't get the brakes during this tournament. almost a whole in one -- hole in one. finished with a solid 69. 10 under. rory mcilroy at 2 under and jordan spieth into the weekend at 4 over. >> i really enjoy the challenge that this weather and elements provide. and it was -- i thought it was a good round to back up the -- the low round yesterday. i played
golf again. i made one or two bad swings that led to bogeys. but for the most part, you know, kept the ball in play. >> that's what everybody was thinking. after the 63 yesterday, what would he have done today? then it gets in your head you feel the pressure. but stress free like he said. interesting weekend. lots of movement on the leaderboard. >> the weather looks so
more than 16 million people have watched a mom in new jersey hunt for glasses of wine in her yard. >> no, this isn't a housewives new show. she says her kids wanted her to join them in playing pokemon go. she said, all right. only if there's wine involved! this inspired her game called chardonnay go. >> there's a glass close to my e
let's chardonnay go! let's find it! >> we called a couple neighbors. i said, can i beat you up in front of a tree? she said, yeah!

but how did we end up here? his mom thought he had the flu and that he was covered by the meningococcal meningitis... vaccine he had received. until 2014 there were... no vaccines for meningitis b in the u.s. now there are. while uncommon, meningitis b can... lead to death within 24 hours. trumenba is a vaccine for 10 through 25 year olds to help prevent group b meningococcal disease.
trumenba should not be given if you had a severe allergic reaction after a previous dose. most common side effects were injection-site pain, fatigue... headache, muscle pain, and chills. ask your doctor about... all the risks and benefits of trumenba and tell them if you've received any other meningitis b vaccines. meningitis b can be spread by typical sharing behaviors. a drink... a spoon... a kiss. it all started here... it might have been prevented with trumenba. ask your doctor about trumenba.
