with the unofficial arrival of summer this weekend, let's turn our attention to the prevention of skin cancer. joining us live from inova fairfax hospital is the director of cue obtainuous lymphoma and high risk skin cancer. thank you for spending a minute with us. no shortage of horror stories associated with skin cancer but how serious is it this time of year? >> it's serious all year round. incidence of all types has risen dramatically. it's more cases of breast, prostrate, lung and colon cancer combined.
so it's a real issue. i think we have to -- when we talk about skin cancer we have to separate out discussions of melanoma which is fairly more aware and potentially fatal. in this country americans over the age of 65 have about a 40% to 50% risk of developing a nonmelanoma skin cancer so it's a real risk and something everyone should be aware of. >> when it comes to identifying it, what should people look for on their skin? >> again, i like to highlight the two different categories, mel nome that in -- mel nome that in general -- melanoma in general you're looking for a change brown or black mole, anything that's stott mattic is worry -- symptomatic is worrisome and nonmelmelanoma, those are predominantly located on sun exposed areas so the head, the neck, the face, the chest. those can be fairly innocuous n. early stages they can appear just like a simple pink, shiny
bump with some exaggerated blood vessels or just a little flaky area that will not go away. >> so there's still time to get out in front of it for people. what are you recommending they do to protect themselves? >> absolutely sunscreen use is the mainstay of sun protection. what you choose and how you use it is really important, though. you want to always reach for spf30 or higher. wasn't to get a product that has broad spectrum coverage which means uva and uvb protection. the most critical thing is you've got to reapply it. what most people don't understand is sunscreens are photo labile which means when you're out in the sun exposed to uv radiation, the molecule in the sunscreen that gives you protection almost instantly starts to breakdown. if you've been out for two hours, you have to reapply or it doesn't work. >> it can get the job done if applied properly. >> absolutely. if you're at a barbecue, at the pool, use a hat and protective
sunglasses to give yourself that extra protection. >> doctor, certainly great advice for us this afternoon. we appreciate your time. >> my pleasure, thank you. now let's bring in allyson rae. just got to get through one more round of rain and then we're in the clear this week, right? >> we are going to see our last chance for rain, at least a stretch of nice days. our last chance of rain today and not everybody will see it. like we just mentioned it's sunny out there and it's hot so grab the sunscreen. we're already at 84 degrees. yesterday at this time we were 88. we topped out at 92 so we're headed right back up to the upper 80s. winds out of the north, north west will maybe keep us at 87, our forecasted high. 87 degrees. but look back off to the west. 74 degrees in pittsburgh. that seems a little bit more comfortable, more our spring speed. that's in the forecast starting tomorrow. we're going to see 70s stick around. temperatures across the area are heating up fast. 18 for manassas. cooler in annapolis. you have some fog, 72. 18 for frederick and waldorf you're at 78 degrees.
if you're going to the nats game tonight, things should be dry by then. we're going to see showers before that and most of the showers are going to be off to the east so a pretty good night. a little breezy with winds out of the west, northwest. let's go through the futurecast n. is 1:00. some showers. we do have a few showers west of 95. the best rain chance is east of 95 but a few trailing showers will start to brew over here and then they push over to the east. watch what happens as i fast forward. by 3:00 lining up along 95. some of these showers and even a couple of thunderstorms. as you head farther south and east, that's where the chances really start to get up a little bit higher. by 6:00 here we go. getting ready for the nats game. things dry up pretty fast. skies are clearing. temperatures still pretty warm. 80 degrees for gaithersburg. 28 for baltimore and 83 -- 82 for baltimore and 38 for d.c. north west winds will -- 83 for d.c. northwest winds will bring in the cool, dry air. tomorrow when you step outside you'll notice a big difference. temperatures will have dropped
and not as humid. still strap steamy today, 87 degrees. winds are going to stay out of the northwest for tomorrow. 77 degrees. a cool and breezy afternoon. now by thursday we're watching thursday. a good thing the nats don't have a game on thursday. could see some showers mainly in areas off to the south but i'm going to adjust that forecast as we get closer to it. look at this. we're into the 70s for a good while and all of the nats home games look to be dry and comfortable. friday 76 degrees. i think friday and saturday look absolutely perfect. a little bit below average but i don't think anyone will be complaining about saturday, 74 degrees. nats home game on sunday. and on monday memorial day, a little bit warmer and a couple of showers as well. we'll be right
