>> but is that not a high-five? >> there it is. come on a little better effort than. that let's go to the forecast. i got lots to talk about. [laughter] >> hermine, that's the name of the game and will it impact our weekend weather? looking more and more likely it will impact our weekend weather but the effects across the area will vary from pretty extreme to not much at all. it's all about the track of the storm. yesterday afternoon it looked like a direct hit. today it looks like it wants to track a little further east which would be great news for us. heaviest of the rain will be south and east of the center of hermine and the beaches, this is where i -- there's growing confidence in the weather community that there will be great impacts in the form of heavy rain, high surf, windy conditions, riptides, rip currents that kind of thing down at the beaches this weekend and gray conditions. it's just not going to be a great weekend i'm afraid for a holiday at the beach. will hermine linger off the coast? that is a good question and it's looking more and more likely like it l it's going to be kind of stuck with
6:47 am
it's going to be unable to escape out into the ocean. local weather quickly here. 76 in washington, kind of warm and sticky out early 70 leonardtown. few 60's in martinsburg and hagerstown 69 degrees. the good news is we're working that cooler and drier air in and i think by later this afternoon the humidity levels will start to dr. off -- drop off as will the rain showers. current rain off to our north and west. some showers will move through in the next few hours enough to wet the roadways in some places. overnight we had some pretty good showers. thunderstorms that have pushed off to the east. down to the gulf of mexico this is hermine. maximum winds 60 miles per hour. not a terribly strong tropical storm but it is bringing flooding rains to parts of florida at this hour and as it tracks to the north and north and east, it will likely become a minimal hurricane or at least a very strong tropical storm before it makes landfall late tonight early tomorrow. strengthened 996 millibars. growing in size and intensity. winds there 60 miles per hour.
6:48 am
key to our weekend forecast and yesterday it was tracking it right across the beaches. today that official -- the official track bite national hurricane center is a little further east. that would be great news for us locally. we might be dealing with clouds and even some rain saturday into sunday but not a washout kind of situation as it looked like yesterday. but we expect this track perhaps to wobble a little further back to the west perhaps a little further east. we just don't know exactly where it's going the track until we get a little closer to the event. one thing we are sure about very heavy rain in florida and that heavy rain will track up right along coastal areas so the beaches likely to be heavily impacted with heavy rain this weekend and in the order of four, five, 6-inches of rain certainly a pocket in places like bethany ocean city, dewey this weekend. 84 today. showers and storms are out of here in time for the bruce concert tonight. >> yay! >> if you're going to the bruce concert at nats park i think you're in good shape. zip trip tomorrow we look great.
