4:24 pm
today will be the hottest of the next three. today at 93 degrees today might end up being the last, did he say the last 90 degree day in august? might be. might be. we'll see. it's not going to be anywhere near 90 over the weekend. through much of the upcoming seven to ten-day stretch, we may fall short of 90 degrees. now, in a summer where we've had no trouble making it into the 90s i can't rule out one or two more. it doesn't look likely. i can tell you one thing, we will not have seven more 90s in a row, period, for the rest of the summer. 93 now, though, at national airport. it's a hot one out there and breezy as well. winds out of the southwest at 20. gusting to near 30 miles per hour. so a really nice southwesterly breeze. baseball game starting at 7:05 tonight for the mets and the nationals. clouds moving in, and there will be a risk of some showers by the late innings of the game. any time really after about the seventh inning stretch, you may have to contend with showers down at the game. not a guarantee, but don't go to the game without at least knowing in advance that you may have to dodge some drops.
4:25 pm
here's live doppler. not much around town just yet. first drops now moving into parts of frederick county, maryland, northern and western parts of laden county, virginia. these are inching their way ever eastbound here, so rain chances are on the up and up. but there's a little break in the action down to the south and west. so not everyone's going to get rained on. there's the i-81 corridor, rain from martinsburg, winchester, front royal and toms brook all getting the rain showers for now. it's all part of a weather front with a broken line of rain showers now that extends all the way from pennsylvania down into the carolinas. as you can see there, there's a lot of holes in spots in the coverage of the rain. so not everybody's going to get rained on, but most of us will have a chance for showers and thunderstorms around for this evening. that should be tapering off after midnight tonight. but the weekend forecast could be a little tricky. a little wave of low pressure on that front. notice the little green shading out there. those are rain drop chances in southern maryland, 5:00, 6:00 tomorrow afternoon. limited sunshine tomorrow and rain chances will linger through
4:26 pm
much of your saturday the further south and east you go. sunday looks like it will be the better day of the weekend. so for this evening, showers and thunderstorms becoming more likely. then overnight tonight, rain and cloudiness and sogginess to get your weekend started. but a nice, cool start. can't even rule out a rumble or two of thunder. not looking for a lot of severe weather. tomorrow, clouds and kind of wet and dreary in the morning. breaks of sunshine by tomorrow afternoon, especially north and west. where it's raining now, if it's raining at your house now out north and west, you'll probably have a decent amount of sunshine as early as tomorrow. but if you live down into southern marylands, planning on going to the beaches, we'll give you the beach forecast coming up. may not be the best weekend for laying on the sand. good movie going, outlet malls, whatever you do on the beach when it's raining. >> we'll make the best of it. still to come on "news 4 at 4," they went for the gold and now they're back home. we're going to catch up with team usa to find out what they are most excited about after the olympics. and spike lee joins us in the studio to tell us why he
