let me show you some of the numbers before we talk about the rain. we need that rain. look at the rain there. we got about a tenth of an inch and it'll just keep adding up through time. when it's all said and done especially around the coastal areas we should see up to maybe three inch, two to three inches of rainfall. that's good news. that will put a dent in that rain gauge. what's going on for today? we came in for 72 degrees. the low at 62 degrees. we were above that. check out the normal. the record highs in 1970. it was 95 degrees. it was 40 degrees. so long ago and we didn't set any type of record. the highs came in elsewhere around 75 in frederick. winchester at 71 degrees. we were seasonable for the most
part. we had lots of cloud around. we had a few peeks of sunshine. we are at 62 degrees into baltimore. check out oakland. 52 degrees there. its cool, 60 degrees in charlottesville and 64 york. i'm talking about rain. it'll be the big situation, its big factor as we go into time. forecasting rain for the overnight. with that we will have the chance for the rain as we go through the rest of tonight, tomorrow and into tuesday to make sure you have the rain gear. things aren't looking to bad. we are -- at least it's pretty much gone. not affecting us. that's what we like to see. as we take a look at what's going here, circled it. we have the area of low pressure and the national hurricane center thinks this could be something.
it could be a tropical storm over the next 48 hours but it's 10% chance but the reason why we are watching this so much is if it does get its act together it'll move fought north. you can see it'll be in the gulf of mexico and could impact the lower 48. we will watch it closely. speaking of that looking in to my future ball here and we can see what's going on. i will pull it in motion and there is that influx of moisture that will move in with that area of low pressure. we could see plenty of rainfalling as we go into monday and tuesday. definitely make sure you have the rain gear. i wouldn't be surprised if my tomorrow -- we have a flood advisory around the area and maybe a flood watch, warnings as we head in to the next several days here. overnight tonight, 61 degrees. showers, temperatures cooler, than when what we saw the next before. then we work into tomorrow and the temperature only at 70. we are going to have the temperatures held down with the cloud cover and the rain and i
wouldn't be surprised if we didn't get up to 70, maybe the upper 60s, see that. showers possible and the thunderstorms are possible as we go go into the afternoon and then much more as we go into tomorrow night. it's just going to continue. once again for tonight we have the periods of rain in the forecast but then the steadier rain by tomorrow and tomorrow night. 67 showers with storms possible once again and here is that seven day. it'll be a little bit on the breezy side into monday and tuesday. 70, 77, by wednesday we get a agreeing break, plenty of sun and thursday and friday a slight chance for showers. then we cooldown. >> while most sports fans were thinking football golfers hit the links to celebrate essential athletes. dozens suited up. it's all part of the shriver day remembering the woman who founded the special olympics.
