12:19 pm
here. >> reporter: national hurricane center said that hermine could still become a hurricane before it makes landfall with everyone making labor day weekend plans. the question is what is the deal in the district and northern virginia and maryland. howard's here with a forecast and that is not easy to track. >> no, for d.c., it could be a descent amount of rain or little rain. it depends on how far west the back side of the precip shield, so to speak, gets it. if you're going to the beach this weekend, saturday and sunday don't look good. monday, salvageable and i would stay out of the water. >> and we'll get to that and start with the quick look at what is going on here. we'll go to hermine in a moment. we still have light showers that are coming through. and that morning made for a slow commute and clearing out this afternoon from northwest to southeast and you do notice when you get even past all of clarksburg here into frederick and most of western louden county, the rain and central montgomery and into howard, eastern louden, fairfax and that is here with some
12:20 pm
showers. and light showers. more showers across southern maryland into fredericksburg and moving through the northern neck and lingering around down there and going through the mid- afternoon. and with the clouds and, it's going to be cooler and into the 70s and low 80s. back above 90 degrees for that 23rd time the month of august and that was a record for awhile. the temperatures this evening in the 70s and with clear to partly cloudy skies and looks much nicer around here tomorrow thanks to much drier air moving in and dew points in the 50s in pittsburgh and williamsport and ohio. the dew points, the storm of 60s to 70s and the drier air is coming in and that will feel great around here tomorrow. right now, 78 in town. and lots of low to mid-70s across the board here and 80 in -- [ indiscernible ] the low 60s and in the mountains. cloudy on the camera. 78 officially and with a couple of sprinkles out there. the humidity high of 74% and this is the infrared satellite imagery of hermine and we colorize the cloud tops
12:21 pm
tallest and these are the giant thunderstorms that are trying to rotate around the center of circulation. we're starting to see more on the west side now. so, the winds, the upper level winds, the sheer that will rip the systems apart and weaken them doesn't seem to be strong now and this has a chance to strengthen and has been strengthening. the hurricane center with the 11:00 advisory, the winds up to 65 and gusting to 75. 74 miles an hour and makes a hurricane. we think we're going to be there this evening as it strengthens. and the pressure is down to 991- millibars and try to watch that number as we get an intermediate advisory at 2 and another at 5. the lower the number, the stronger the storm. this comes onshore making a landfall east of apalachicola. and this whole upper florida coast here is shaped perfectly against the water and has a big storm surge. this is not a good track and it's only a hurricane category 1 and not a two or stronger and this will continue to move up the i-95 corridor and
12:22 pm
hatterias by saturday morning and 45 miles per hour. you notice, no tropical and it's transitioning from a tropical storm to a post- tropical storm. the larger wind field and rain shield is going to be along the bay here, east of the bay and into the coast. and look what happens. this is sunday at noon and you know, we still have a storm out here with 50 miles per hour winds. watch where it goes and doesn't go, i should say. monday, into tuesday and it barely moves. the surf here is going to be awfully rough. not just through the weekend, but through the middle of next week. river currents are a real threat. i would stay out of the water and go to the beach. stay out of the water and stay safe. this will be a problem. we'll have to see how close this gets to us and looks like a shower threat is moving in by saturday afternoon. and lammingsish -- lingering into parts of sunday and this is up in the air. and isolated showers and storms. tomorrow, 82 and sunshine, a
12:23 pm
aiely weather alert day, depending on the exact temperature and the temperatures hold in the 70s. monday, 85. and we have the nats on 9 for labor day. should be drier and tuesday and wednesday, the heat returns with highs back toward 90. we'll see you in a few moments. stick around.
