>> yes, indeed. tomorrow will be just as ugly, or just as pretty we should say. the 3-degree guarantee. we went for a high today of 67. you have to keep that in perspective. our average high is 82. and we were worried. 64, but we made it. not until 6:00 p.m. we made it within 3 degrees. is that correct. two for three now for the month of june. i'm going 67 again tomorrow which is crazy because, again, our average high is 82. let's talk about this. from july to april, monday, it seems like a lifetime ago was 92. 10 degrees above average. then on tuesday, it was 72. 10 degrees below average. that occurred in the early morning hours within the 60s during the day. and today only 64. 18 degrees below average. i think tomorrow will hold in the 60s as well. kind of unusual for june. live look outside, our weather cam, still 63 and winds easterly at 9. radar over the past hour or so, show you some showers to the south. nothing crazy heavy but this is
11:19 pm
going to move northward overnight. i think many of us will have light rain and some showers to deal with for your morning commute. might want to add 5 minutes. other than that, nothing heavy. we're still in a stable air mass tomorrow. we don't become unstable until friday when the warmer air returns. so roads wet for the morning and evening commutes tomorrow. thus, our yellow alert. bus stop temperature, low 50s to mid 60s. bring a umbrella. probably a light jacket. cool and damp again tomorrow. temps in the 60s. but, milder on friday with more showers and perhaps a late thunderstorm friday night as temperatures go back to the 70s. it is going to be a battle on friday. you might wake up friday morning and just see drizzle and temperatures still in the 60s. but i think the warm air will win out. may take until 3:00, 4:00, 5:00 in the afternoon to do so. 6:00, tomorrow morning. 57, leesburg. 58 in manassas with showers. it is all green, which is light on our legend but still, it is kind of a nuisance day. now, by 9:00, some more
11:20 pm
showers, leesburg, manassas even portions of prince georges county and anne arundel county. 61 in gaithersburg and 65 downtown by 1:00. by 4:00, a little better chance of showers. by 6:00, the the showers move into the i-95 corridor. day planner, 60s to start and low 60s at that. mid 60s. only 64 by 1:00. milder with showers on friday. 78. 82 on saturday with showers, and perhaps a thunderstorm. but not a washout. nats here through sunday. we will keep sundry dry with temps in the low 80s and we snap back to july like weather. upper 80s on monday and tuesday with showers and storms. dry wednesday with temperatures back into the middle 80s. nationals suffering a beatdown tonight. >> it was not a pretty night weather-wise and on the field either. a little chilly for fans. a rough cold night in nats park. but thankfully it was a quick game. it lasted just over two hours.

helping protect that world takes state farm. after getting swept by the cincinnati reds, nationals manager matt williams said his bullpen was tired. they had seen too many innings over the series. tonight the relievers got a reprieve because frockly the nats were out of this -- frankly the nats were out of this game early on. they hosted the bluejays in a quick game. rough outing for taylor jordan. toronto scored 4 runs in the 1st inning. now, taylor hill came in. he was decent in relief, allowing 1 run on this bataita solo shot but that was the
11:25 pm
anyone -- 9 innings. blue jays blanked the nats 8-0. orioles on if road in houston. bottom of the 5th. chris carter the baseball player, with a shot to left center field, second home run of the game. astros win this one 3-1. baltimore now 6-16 on the road this season. rough one for them. the redskins back on the practice field today for their second session of off-season workouts. joined this week by desean jackson who missed the first session and today offered no apologies saying he will be ready for the season. otas is all about building chemistry. not just with the new guys but with the veterans as well. coach gruden says he feels that can happen on offense when the team finally finds stability in the quarterback position. which, if you listen to gruden's comments today, that position isn't completely set yet. >> i feel as good about all three quarterbacks honestly. and their progression. but we need to settle on one.
11:26 pm
would be nice to settle on one. so, it will have a positive influence on the receivers if we can settle on one so they get the continuity and feel good about where they are going and all that. from football to futbol. d.c. united hosting chicago. black and red with possession. ball bounces off the defender, aritta bangs it home. d.c. united 3-1. 20 straight games at rfk without a loss. payback for the maryland terps. they will take the field at davenport stadium for a super regional rematch against virginia. the carves knocked the terps out of the post season after a tough 3-game series. but now maryland gets another shot at a trip to omaha. it will be the first in program history. two days after knocking off ucla to advance to their second straight super regional they got right back to work this afternoon. keep their eye on the prize and
11:27 pm
ready for revenge. >> that is awesome you know. again, on selection monday we saw that our regional was paired up with the region they were in. you know we were both 3 seeds. we figured a slim chance both of us will make it but now that it happened we're back on the east coast and back in davenport. that is a big time incentive. and hockey in june? tampa, florida. the lightning led for almost 49 minutes. but the blackhawks scored twice in the third period. in a span of 1:58. this game winner, gives a 2-1 win. so, i am from tampa and rooting for the home town team so that was a bummer. speaking of hometown team, didn't geoff gruden say that rg iii was the starter? >> he did but apparently. >> he sounded equivocal. >> i said you be the judge of
11:28 pm
those statements. >> no doubt he will
