came right across route 66 right through fairfax county prince george's county before dying out. we did have a few more back towards the west. it all formed along a little bit of a line here. look at this line. this line had some severe weather associated with it in through pennsylvania. we had more back through the west. that's what we're going to see during the day tomorrow. future weather timing it out for us. 8:00 tomorrow, not much. just clouds and hot. did i mention that? >> you did. >> just wanted to make sure. it's going to be hot tomorrow. and with that, we'll see a chance for some more showers and thunderstorms. they will be scattered. not everybody will see them. once again, do not cancel the outdoor plans. however, if you're at the pool, keep a watchful eye to the sky. any time there is lightning or thunder, get out of telephone pool for at least 30 minutes. look at 1:00. some showers and a few storms right along i-81. and during the afternoon, we see a few more of those. i still think the best chance will be south and west of i-95 or south and west of d.c. so northern virginia parts of southern maryland during the day on saturday.
and around 9:00 tomorrow night, if you're out and about, going out to dinner, maybe to the movies tomorrow night, i think you'll be okay. dry just on the hot side. sunday morning very warm and humid. that's going to continue. that's the trend. and notice one income the afternoon, we still have another chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms. not a washout of a day later. if your kids have games on sunday they should get them in no problem. high temperature 91 in leesburg. 93 in fredericksburg there is the three days in a row at 90 degrees. 92 tomorrow in d.c. the heat index tomorrow could get up there around 97, 98 tomorrow. so very hot and humid day. that's why it's a high impact event as far as exercise goes. today we even had a heat advisory in effect for d.c. could be in effect tomorrow if we go above that 92 degrees mark. we'll be there at around three income the afternoon. next couple day, well, 90s again. 90 on sunday. 91 on monday. 92 on tuesday with a chance of showers and storms just about each day. after that we cool off significantly from 92 all the way down to 85.
but, hey, i'll take 85 any day. it will be rather warm and humid. so the heat index will still be around 89 to 90. at least we're not in the 90s anybody. 89 on thursday. 87 degrees on friday. >> and you know what that means though. some really great nights out there. the nights are going to be really nice. >> silver lining. >> he is a glass half full kind of guy, isn't he? >> all right. still ahead, the united states had a little bit of scare against sweden in the world cup. sports is next.
your home for the most live sports. >> boy you knew sweden was going to be tough. they certainly lived up to expectation. >> a big chance tonight for the americans. and they didn't get it done. still a chance to go forward, but not tonight. we begin with a dated reference. party like it's 1999. you remember prince. the united states, i was hoping somebody did. the united states women's soccer team would like to. over the years, plenty of thrills. we get that. but 1999 was the last time the u.s. women won the world cup. tonight a chance to advance to a knockout round with a win over sweden. a team coached by pia sundhage who used to coach the americans. and hope solo a piece of work. sundhage also called solo the best in the world. early on a corn for the swedes. solo denies sweden a terrific diving effort from the goalkeeper. we stay scoreless in the 38th.
second half still scoreless. fans on their feet. abby wambach came in and made her presence felt. megan rapino. a great chance for the americans. 72nd minute we're still scoreless. corner kick, roll out to seigler. a little help from the crossbar. great defense by clingenburg to save the americans. this one ends, scoreless draw. the united states still stuff. the next match tuesday against nigeria. all right. to the nationals. dealing with as many injuries as wins in the month of june. three wins this month. barrett is the latest june addition to the disabled list. no choice but to play through. and the nationals in milwaukee trying to end their june swoon of seven losses in ten games against the brewers. to wisconsin, where they're
rolling out the barrel. literally. and then it was the top of the second. the brewers up 2-0. and bryce harper rolling out the barrel of his bat. we like that better. skies it to center. amazing, even had a roof on the building. he skies it to center, 21st home run of the season. one win away from his career best. jordan zimmermann pitching less than three hours from his hometown. didn't last much more than three i think so with two on. jonathan knocks this to left. the double from lucroy. the brewers up 5-2. ramirez with the bases loaded. you know where this one is going. takes this one down the line in left two. more runs come in to score. three doubles and five rbi in the game for ramirez. do the math on that. the brewers beat the nats 8-4. that's now the eighth loss in the last 11 games for the nats. ouch. all right. oriole fans wearing their pink. that's a great shot.
starting the series against the yankees. pay attention. they've got good seats. smacks this one deep to right. comes off the wall.
manny machado comes in to score. rbi single for davis. o's up 1-0. look at the frustration. he wanted a home run. bottom third, khris davis up again. what does he want? wanted a home run. takes to it right. this time it is a home run on to the fly court. 13th home over the season for davis. four rbi in the game. orioles have won 7 of 8 and .500 for the first time since the 5th of may. you ready? you ready? tomorrow night game five of the stanley cup final between the blackhawks and lightning. 8:00 right here on nbc. even if you're out there you can catch the gym on your phone. just download the nbc washington app. >> download the app. >> getting there. >> make sure you put your teeth in first. but download the app and you can
