cooler air. by saturday, you'll need something really to keep you warm out there. let's talk first about the records. 88 is the high in washington. i don't see that falling. but maybe 84 in marlins burg, all in jeopardy this afternoon. currently, temperatures up to 84 in charlottesville. nashville is at 76. right on the potomac. notice some 60s to the north and pittsburgh and cleveland. there's a little front up there. couple of showers on it. not much going on. a few so we may see some of this trend toward the shenandoah valley, as we get toward the afternoon. there's a shower threat there. in fact, looking at the future cast, we should warm up to 83 or so by 3:00. couple of showers start to develop here, i-81 west as we get into late afternoon, early evening hours. and then tonight, if we have any showers, they'll be north and west of town. with lows tonight again mainly in the 60s. as you said, andrea, big changes will be here by the
hope you have it on your smart phone. if not, never too late to start the first download. coming up, social media, buzzing about the obamas' final state dinner. it was one for the ages. next, what many are saying about the affair. and it's breast cancer awareness month. the action -- emphasis on taking action. coming up, what you need to know to take charge of your
i am totally blind. i lost my sight in afghanistan. if you're totally blind, you may also be struggling with non-24. calling 844-844-2424. or visit my24info.com. october is breast cancer awareness month. expert says about one in eight women will develop breast cancer over the course of her lifetime. it's estimated that more than a quarter million women will be diagnosed this year. breast surgeon, dr. robert
more on what you can do. dr. cohen, thank you for being here with us. if someone does find cancer, the treatments out there are really very different from even say 20 years ago. talk about some of the new treatments being offered in that anova breast cancer program. >> well, we're working hard to understand the human genome and its role in disease and treatment and prevention. we also are involved in multiple studies. looking at innovative and one treatment in particular i wanted to mention is a treatment that replaces traditional radiation to the whole breast, lasting four to six weeks, with a single dose of radiation, given to the tumor bed at the time of surgery. >> someone who has to undergo radiation because it saves time, not only in treatment but away from their families. you know, the emphasis is not just on awareness but taking action. and we have been talking about
self breast exams. but a new england journal of medicine report its is those better treatments rather than early detection. the reason why breast cancer death rates in the u.s. have dropped. should women continue to go in for their annual exams and clinical exams? >> absolutely. breast self exam has become somewhat controversial. but we still see patients who present with cancers that they picked up on their own, and so we want them to continue to do their self exams. mammograms are a key to getting cancers early. the earlier we catch a cancer, the better chance we have of curing cancers. we cure over 90% of breast cancers, picked up before they reach a centimeter in size. so prevention is part of the treatment program, yes. >> dr. cohen, what's the most exciting thing you've seen in the years that you have been a breast surgeon, about advances
by targeted therapies. these are therapies that look at the cancer cell, figure out what turns the cell on and how to turn it off. so these treatments are very specific. they are very effective. and they usually have limited side effects. and this opens up a valuable avenue for research. and i think it's going to improve cancer care going forward. >> dr. robert cohen, thank you very much, dr. cohen, with the anova breast cancer >> thank you. >> you're welcome. well, talk about going out with a big bang. many are still talking about last night's state dinner, the last of president obama's administration. more than 400 guests attended, including prominent italian americans, such as race car driver, mario andretti. mrs. obama dazzled in an, italian ver -- versace gown.
inferno. >> he has two more than president bush but fewer than other of his recent predecessors. president bill clinton exceeded both of his successors with 28 dinners during two terms in office. some have been trending all morning long about the first lady's gown. ash tweeted, you would think michelle would be in the white house the night before like oh, okay? and bob had this to say, obama spends a million dollars on a party last night, meanwhile, most americans don't have $500 in the bank and the country is $20 trillion in debt. and brenda says, please, don't forget how much you are loved and appreciated. potus, thank you for a job well done. drop us a line on any of
crews in california still have their hands full battling a blaze that started last night. this fire broke out near a natural gas storage unit in the hills above los angeles. so far, no homes have been damaged. but firetefighrs say they have had a difficult time, accessing the blaze. and people living near mexico's colima volcano are ready to leave quickly, if ordered. the volcano spewed plumes of ash and smoke twice yesterday. experts who have been keeping an eye colima has become more active lately, because of a new lava dome growing. that is powerful. >> impressive. >> oh, wow. all right. howard is here. impressive. we're enjoying climbing temperatures here in late october. >> average highs are in the mid- to upper 60s now across the region. 68 or so here in washington. colder, north and west. in the 80s yesterday. we'll be in the 80s again today. and saw it earlier. potentially set something records.
dulles. and 88 in d.c. is going to hold. this afternoon, by the way, the mold spores came in high. everything else is low, in case that's troubling you. we should have sun and clouds mixed. highs in the low to mid-80s once again. i put a little raindrop in at 8:00 and 9:00. we have a shower threat here by let's say, 5:00, 6:00. satellite -- this is visible satellite imagery. you can see, we've got more cloudiness, when you get west a few patches of cloud coming through. so we don't have that nice, all- day blue sky like yesterday. but still going to get on the warm side. warm through thursday. today will be warmer than tomorrow. a few showers here and there really tonight and thursday. but i think the big show, as far as rain -- and we still need some, will be friday. friday is going to have a yellow weather alert. if we get past the rush hour dry, looks like that will be
and storms with with a cold front coming. going to bring much cooler air here on saturday. it will be blustery. blustery on saturday. 83. well, that's a record in baltimore. remember, their record today was 82. we got 86 at this hour in leesburg. i'll have to look and see where dulles is. but 76 on the potomac. 81 in pax river. 85, culpepper. this stuff is unbelievable for this time of year that we'd be this warm. 76 with national. and if we get the wind off more to the west or southwest, as opposed to off the water, it will help them heat up more. and the dew point in the 60s. what we're watching -- we're actually tracking out here. tough to see. there's a little area of low pressure. this could be auto in a few days. and this may throw in moisture ahead of that front toward new england. but for us, we watch the showers in west virginia. i think they'll pick up a little bit with the daytime heating.
we have spotty showers. and some might sneak in toward the district by midnight. then lift up toward pennsylvania. warm front goes in tomorrow. tomorrow will be once again toward the low 80s and look at the showers and storms developing with this front that i expect to be here on friday, at times for the afternoon, into friday night. and then much cooler, behind it. temperatures stay in the 50s on saturday. so for college football, tailgating. boy, it's going to be a chilly one. record warmth. we've already seen in baltimore. 60s tonight. tomorrow around 80. could be a stray shower. yellow weather alert for showers developing and falling temps tomorrow afternoon. highs around 70. mid-60s for the way home. saturday, we're staying in the 50s. chilly nights, 42. saturday night in town. and back in the 60s, sunday,
