High pressure over New England and low
pressure off the Virginia coast will
pump in moisture for the next several
days. This "wedge" will mean a mostly

Clouds, drizzle and fog are likely

Temperatures will be on the upswing the
next few days, with highs Monday in the

Tuesday and Wednesday. Lows in the 40s.


A warm front lifting north will crank
daytime highs to the low and mid 70s
Thursday, and upper 70s by Friday!
Thursday calls for mostly cloudy skies;

of afternoon showers as a cold front

Potomac vs. Avs It was blanket weather at the :00 ballpark on this Sunday.


Douglas Arguello was on the hill
for the Avs. Here he uncorks the pitch

run to score.


The Avs bats were quiet today.
They managed only 5 hits, but one of
them came right here off the bat of
