11:18 pm
this is what will continue to push through the area. showers become more widespread very early tomorrow morning. for the rest of the overnight hours, we're looking at hit or miss activity. also something to note. look at the back side of the storm system, back into west virginia, ohio, seeing snow in those areas. now, as this moves towards the east, we're not going to see snow in our area, but our temperatures tomorrow, well, they'll be noticeably cooler. wondering how much rain you receive today? here's a look at rainfall totals. washington picking up just over an inch. many areas about half of an inch to around an inch of rain. and we'll add about that much onto tomorrow. so when all is said and done, we're looking at about 1 to 2 inches of rain from this weekend's event. future weather. we're at midnight, scattered showers. we hit 4:00 a.m. more widespread activity. we continue to see rain at times throughout the day tomorrow, a steady rain. light to moderate in intensity. noon, still tracking rain. even at 8:30, tomorrow evening.
11:19 pm
notice the d.c. metro area still dealing with rain. rain will come to an end tomorrow night just after midnight. temperatures right now, it all depends on where you are. 63 in washington. 46 in frederick. 63 down in fredericksburg. tomorrow morning is actually when we'll be the warmest of the day. 7:00 a.m. tomorrow morning, already tracking rain and temperature at that point of 53 degrees. also notice there's the chance for some fog around tomorrow morning. look what happens to temperatures throughout the day tomorrow. they actually slowly fall. so by the midday hours, we're in the upper 40s, mid-40s for the afternoon hours. 7:00, we're in the low 40s. so it's a chilly, damp rain at that point. again, it is breezy throughout the day tomorrow, a wind advisory runs throughout the day tomorrow until 6:00 a.m. monday for areas like warrenton, winchester, and leray. winds strongest there. chris, good news. monday through friday, our
11:20 pm
temperatures will be at or above average. monday, a high of 62, plenty of sunshine. tuesday and wednesday, highs near 70. we're actually at 70 on thursday and then the chance of some more rain next friday and saturday. >> all right. thanks, amelia. still ahead, coming up, the play that silenced the verizon center. the wizards' john wall toughing it out.
11:21 pm
11:22 pm
i've got to tell you, it will be nice to have playoff basketball here in washington. >> yes. >> in a few weeks or a month or
11:23 pm
so. >> it could come sooner, because if the wizards -- or if the knicks lose tomorrow and the wizards win on monday, the wizards clinch a playoff spot, and they haven't done that since 2008. >> they're going to get in. >> definitely. it will come sooner rather than later. here we go. the wizards were at it again tonight, back-to-back home games for the wiz kids. they knocked off the team in the eastern conference last night, the pacers, and another tough challenge again tonight, a playoff-caliber team came to town in atlanta. john wall and the guys getting down to business. first quarter action, hawks turn it over, and trevor riza, he is off to the races. after a rough start, the wizards came back. a scary moment in the third quarter. john wall stepped on the foot of martin, and he goes down, grabs his knee. my heart stopped for a full three seconds. wall actually shook it off. he turned out to be okay. later on, john wall proving that
11:24 pm
he's okay, the three-pointer there. he had a game-high 25 points. wizards lead, 25-7. and the alley-oop here, the wizards take it, 101-97. head coach randy wittman worried about the way his team is playing right now and not the playoff picture. >> wasn't too concerned about a little bit more cushion. again, i'm more concerned with us -- you know, let's get playing positive. you know, consistent. feeling good about ourselves. how we're playing. the style we're playing. the intensity we're playing with. and that's more what i'm -- i'm concerned about. you know, with the last nine games. let's go down a level to college basketball. elite eight. 11-seed dayton taking on top-seed florida gators. first half, gators up one. scoo scoochie smith has the ball. florida takes control in the second half.
11:25 pm
wilbekin had the big points. dayton ends the run, and florida advances to the fifth final four. to anaheim. arizona, the wildcats, striking up the band before they face wisconsin. we'll pick this one up late. just over 30 seconds remaining, arizona's nick johnson with a terrible shot here. but a great pass. to rondae hollis-jefferson. overtime, frank kaminski, the big fellow getting the fade-away jumper to go. badgers grab the lead, take the win, 64-63. they advance to the final four. they will await the winner of kentucky and michigan. so florida and wisconsin punch their tickets to the final four. the east and midwest region will play their games tomorrow. to the ice now. time is almost running out on the capitals and their playoff hopes. that's why the losses like today hurt more than normal. the caps were outplayed and outworked by the bruins.
11:26 pm
to verizon center. scoreless in the second period. jerome again with the short breakaway, and he scores. go ahead, make it 1-0, boston. in the second period, along the boards, the pass gets kicked out by hopy, but there for his own rebound, and he puts it home. that made it 3-0, boston. it's 4-1, bruins late in the third, with aguinea scores a pretty goal here and had to be the goal of the night. off the far post and the caps lose, though, 4-2, so not a good time to lose a game this time of year for the capitals. moving on to rfk stadium. d.c. united getting some good luck greetings from the younger fans. 35th minute. united down one with a penalty kick. fabian scores united's first goal of the season. we are tied at 1-1.
11:27 pm
a little trickeration there. 73rd minute. united with the corner click, great placement in front of the goal, complete chaos ensues, pitchen knocks it home. d.c. grabs the 2-1 lead. chicago tied it up at 2-2. that's how it would end. united is 0-2-1 on the season. now, we told you earlier in the newscast, our own diana tells us jackson is scheduled to visit the redskins. he would add depth on the field and probably someone the skins could have used tonight on the basketball court. this is from the comcast center, the skins versus ravens on the hardwood, and that is terrell suggs, a large man for the ravens. he can also move. there we go. this is deangelo hall, running the point. he has nice handles there. good move. lots of fun. lots of money raised. >> wow.
11:28 pm
>> deshaun jackson. something to keep our eye on. >> it would be huge. >> that's our news for tonight. "saturday night live" is next.
