in this case we may want to hold back a little bit. show you what we're dealing with right now. very nice conditions out at the airport, but i want to show you something. we see this every once in a while. 52 degrees right now at the airport. the airport is what we call the urban heat aisle. a lot of concrete around the area does not radiate as efficiently, meaning the warm air doesn't move back into the atmosphere as efficiently as the cooler suburbs. 34 manassas, 35 much colder where we have clear skies, vegetation out there and we have those calm winds. that's why temperatures are falling so quickly. 35 in martinsburg. 58 by noon, 64 degrees by 4:00. you can see a great day on our wednesday. no rain. we're not going to see any of that any time soon. the rain we saw yesterday is now way up towards new england, and
now. it brought parts of new england two to three inches of rain around new york city. we did not see much of it. behind it we are seeing those clear skies. i think most of you tomorrow will be in the upper 30s to start off your day. you'll need the jacket when you step out the front door. in the city, as i mentioned, 45. 33 in manassas, 38 in leesburg, so a cool start, but this time of year that's exactly what we expect. what we don't expect is how warm we'll coue 64 degrees, another nice one as we move through the day tomorrow. noon 56. yeah, you can get lunch outdoors and walk around with it. in the sun with light wind, that's not bad at all. 64 by 4:00, and 56 by 7:00 tomorrow night. how about the warmth over the next few days? 65 on thursday, 69 on friday. we could be in 70 in many areas. on saturday going for a high of 67. saturday i've got p.m. showers. but if you have activities on
i don't think we'll see showers until after sunset, so a very warm day becoming a little breezy late in the day. but a nice saturday afternoon. it is sunday when things change. look at the temperature. 67 to 48. that's because of a strong cold front. the warm air is in place, here comes the cold front, pushes it in place. if we get much colder, winds gusting to 30 miles an hour. wind will stay in the 3 most of you. some of us could see some flakes. that's about it. don't expect any accumulation. this is not a big storm, but it is big in the sense that it will jump our temperatures back 30 to 40 degrees. >> will we need a magnifying glass to see them? >> it will be one of those that 45 minutes, it runs on through. >> no blinking.
the east and the west are mine. the north and the south are mine. all seems beautiful to me. well, we knew it was going to be a good match-up, but this was as good as it gets. >> good to see these two teams play, georgetown and maryland. they were getting after it. you can see exactly why fans want these two programs playing each and every year. it looked like they were on their way to an easy victory in, getting some redemption for last
nine-point lead with less than two and a half minutes to play. the fans fired up for this one. we don't know when we'll see these two teams play again. i want to skip ahead, though. a little over a minute to play. 21 points for georgetown. they're up 7 with a minute to play. but here comes maryland. kevin harter, the freshman, mashed down a three-pointer. under 20 seconds to go, easy trimble. a huge mistake here for the hoyas. it's maryland's ball. huge mistake there. they take it over with 8.4 seconds to go. maryland trimble was found. maryland had the lead.
maryland edges out georgetown 76-75. with more on this wild finish, here's carol malone. >> reporter: a one-point, last-second crazy comeback victory leaves one team stunned and the other one soaked. >> i was worried sick, but our guys never quit. we kept competing. i'm really proud of our guys. we stepped up and madee throws. obviously a great locker room. >> we just kept fighting. like the coach said, we played with a group of freshmen out there that had never been in that environment before, and for them to go out there and play the way they did and step up when we needed them to was special. >> there were just too many mental errors at the end, and you can rattle off a bunch of them, but we have to -- you know, we put them in a position
>> reporter: now are they in position to play each other again? all we know for sure is this one makes the case for the next one. at verizon center, carol maloney, news4 sports. siena beat george washington 77-75. st. francis brooklyn and trying to shake off an ugly loss to the hurricanes. second period we were scoreless. nicholas baxtrom weaving through the offense. over to the faceoff, a quick shot for the game winner. second straight loss for the capitols now.
