12:01 pm
the news media. >> the fake media is trying to silence us, but we will not let them. >> mr. trump drew criticism after he tweeted this doctored video showing him punching someone with a cnn logo pasted over his head. cnn called it a sad day when the president of the united states encourages violence against reporters. he is involved in juvenile behavior far below the dignity of his office. thomas bossart defended the tweet. >> there's a lot of cable news shows that reach directly into hundreds of thousands of viewers and they're really not always very fair to the president. >> monday morning the president took to twitter again claiming the media is overlooking accomplishments. >> people heard very little about any of those things because of the focus on the issues the president raises on social media. it seems like a distraction on many mornings. >> over the weekend, the president's tweets seemed to overshadow several calls to foreign

12:17 pm
weather, rated d. c.'s most accurate forecast. >> thank you very much for helping me. >> all right, how hot is it going to be for the holiday. >> it's pretty hot out there. >> yesterday was unbelievable. >> it was really uncomfortable. i was walking around downtown, and i thought i'm just going to sit in the shade and take a minute to kind of cool off here. it was really steamy. >> it was brutal. >> and it wasn't even that humid. today our wind out of the northwest feels pretty nice. we are going to have a few stray showers today, most areas, i would say about 95% of the area is going to be just fine and dry, enjoy another day of the long holiday weekend. tomorrow for the actual 4th of july, it could be our wettest day since saturday. we had those strong storms come on saturday. these are going to be a little different. there's going to be more of them at once around the region. 89 degrees, take a look at at
12:18 pm
it's pretty comfortable. well, compared to what it could be. let me rephrase that. it could feel into the mid-90s, and that's how it's going to feel tomorrow. it's pretty nice because the dew point is on the lower side relatively speaking, so that will keep a lot of our rain chances at bay today, however, one or two can't rule it out. around the region we're at 84 for hagerstown, 89 for fredericksburg and 88 for waldorf. for the rest of the night if you are headed to nats park tonight, what an evening. it will be very comfortable, especially once the sunsets we'll be into the 80s. if you're having fireworks tonight, maybe your town is setting off the fireworks at 9:00 tonight it feels pretty good. we'll be into the 80s. no real rain chances around the region. one or two stray showers we'll see. it feels into the mid-90s tomorrow. tomorrow more humid and more scattered showers and thunderstorms. by 9:00 tomorrow this is for tuesday, temperatures will feel into the 80s as you get ready to watch out for fireworks around the region. >> one or two stray showers, tomorrow
12:19 pm
start to increase. as you get the barbecues ready, use the app and the storms will pop up and see how they're progressing around the region. we'll be at 88 by noon and 86 by 3:00. this is 6:00, nats game getting going. things are looking good around nats park. one or two stray showers especially off to the west near the mountains. as we head through tomorrow morning, we're starting off in the 70s. it's going to be rather muggy when you step out the door tomorrow morning. this is 11:30, nats game at 11. in the morning and early afternoon we get it done before the heat cranks up and also before our rain chances start to move in. as you head home from nats park we could start to run into a couple of showers, and watch how they kind of linger. these are prompted as the heat and humidity continue to build. by 7:00 we're still tracking showers and thunderstorms. if you're heading out to watch some fireworks, make note that you might have to bring a nice blanke
12:20 pm
this is not good news. this thunderstorm is right on top of d. c. at 10:30 at night. we're trying to get the fireworks at 9:30. keep in mind, this could be really at any location around our region. the exact location we really don't want to take literally from the futurecast, the idea that there will be a few storms lingering around by tomorrow evening that's going to be the case. use our app to see where those thunderstorms are. hopefully they're not on top of the national mall. for wednesday the thunderstorms will continue to be around the region. we have an unsettled pattern. fireworks, we're looking at 83 degrees. for tomorrow 91, nats are here all week. we will have some scattered showers. we'll be right back.
