area. we saw flash flood warnings, baseball-sized hail in rockville, i've never seen that. i've lived here more than half my life and have never seen baseball-sized hail in the metro area. we saw it today. heavy rain down towards the south. don't drive through any flooded roadways down there. the northern neck will get hit again. this rain will continue tonight. the heaviest is moving out, but we still have an upper level system that will enhance this area of rainfall and we can expect more rain by tomorrow morning. here we go, by 3:00, starting to develop. much by 7:00, 7:00 a.m. at the bus stop, you will most likely need that umbrella. chance of showers for sure, maybe moderate rain. you'll need the umbrella at times during the day. so even a few showers around 3:00 to 4:00 in the afternoon. so that impact forecast tomorrow, we've got it on the low side because any rain tomorrow should be scatter
showers and should be mainly light, but carry the umbrella just in case. and maybe the jacket too, because we're back into the 60s, 65 tomorrow, 60 in d.c. on your thursday. remember, 60 in d.c. means an58n some of the cooler suburbs. you can see the next couple of days unsettled with some showers likely. >> all right, thank you, doug. coming up, the caps fall to the penguins, but they're
