you can see out west and north a little bit thinner and more sunshine here and some of the showers now getting into southeastern virginia l we'll see and see if that makes it to the northern neck or southern maryland before the day is out. you guys may see a sprinkle there. temps they're warm in town. 85s. but winchester 79 and on the bay 83 for annapolis and 80 love is a little -- cloud cover is a little thicker in pax river and cambridge. looking outside on the michael & son weather camera, that filtered sunshine, mostly cloudy skies here in northwest d.c.. 85 humidity at 46%. so not too humid yet. and a north northeasterly wind at 5 miles an hour. our problem, all this moisture has been sitting off the carolina coast for days there's been a boundary here. florida's finally cleared out and you can sort of see a little twist right there near charleston, south carolina. that's a little area of low pressure and yeah. it may be a little area of low pressure but it's tracking right toward the metro. suffolk, virginia as well going to see the showers developing later tonight into tomorrow morning. see the clouds with this most
of the afternoon. could be a few showers down around norfolk especially this afternoon. maybe up toward richmond. overnight though the moisture comes northward. by tomorrow morning 6:00 a.m. richmond seeing the rain, the northern neck. watch what happens during the day as the rain continues to slowly creep up towards us towards lunchtime. northern sections with some luck you have a dry morning. if you have to mow your lawn do it early. starting to lift north here by saturday night and even sunday you're going to be some scattered showers and thunderstorms around as well. so yellow alerts both days. here's isaac getting stronger in the caribbean, joyce by the way downgraded to a tropical depression but isaac is the storm. not that far from a hurricane with winds now 60. to 75 it's a hurricane and going to be close to that potentially crossing haiti tonight and crossing cuba tomorrow. as long as it stays over land it gets weak. once it gets over water could be a strong thunderstorm near key west monday morning and
