that rainfall, 1-100th at the airport. and there wasn't much at all, a lot of sprinkles and height assures. took a while to get the pavement wet. 7 was the high at the airport and inhear harbour high. and there was enough sun to drive the temperature up. 76 is typical for this time of year. kehl see more clouds, probably toughtory warm up during the day tomorrow. and especially with the activity. and 69 right now, annapolis and it is 6 at cambridge and 63 at ocean a they have been in the 60's all day long and rather cool there with a breeze coming off the water. 66 at westminster and out at pred rick and 64 and at oakhand, it is the 50's all day long because of the clouds and the rain. here's the satellite image with that -- that new band of rain shower activity moving in out to the west and again, this here, this area in the northern virginia is that thundershower activity, coming in.

>> upon occasion i have been a little critical of the orioles this season, not as much for their losing, rather how they failed to entertain. it is much easier to watch a team lose when they score runs. ther they entertained and showing that robin is racing. look at that. and bottom three, willingham getting a good look at brad and liking what he sees. and monster mash to left. the two-run shot, and his seventh of the year and game tied at 2-2. top four, adam jones, and back
to work again. and a little different. morgan has bead and drops the ball and takes it to the home run. it is not. there was a tantrum and almost throws his glove and providing a heck of an example what not to do in baseball diamond. jones gets the little league two-run home run and tie wigginton. and tradrble guy and he doesn't run hard for it. two-run shot and fourth r.b.i. on the day and it is 636 had orioles and the fun is done for baltimore and two runs in. and brad bergersen out and out goes the ball from dunn and base hit scores a pair and four in the inning. that's enough. nationals even the series and the match sunday, 135. in philadelphia, dice-k matsusaka, having his way with the best lineup in the league. and we tested those. and no, no, and 7 2/3, no hit ball against the phils. it is a gem broken up by howard and werth and utley.

an end. and ncaa women are much better-yard for maryland, and top seed knocks off penn advancing to the final four and they got the winner of james madison and syracuse on friday. the virginia women and their first road game sense the death of yardley love lose to north carolina. and that ends the cavaliers season. and inter milan up for a friendly at the stadium. not sure about the teams knowing this, inter milan, very good. and get ready for a yellow and blue invasion. inter milan and bayern munich and look at the header, give-and-go. don't see that a lot. he finishes it off and second half, 66 minutes, looking for more. and crossover and not my booth, your booth. sfill 1-0, and remember the crossover, and that's even better. look at that, goodness, great
move and the finish. there's two goals and intermilan wins the championship. to celebrate the victory, coach jose pereno will probably leave the team. all star night, nascar. for the to put your best foot forward. oh, dear. and came tony stewart representing the night. it is a million dollar first price, racing in charlotte. take a hint, other sports and make your all-star exhibition interesting and give the participants money. mark martin and logano and wrecked sideways and the winners, kurt bush he's okay and wins the million
