11:24 pm
and, of course, what a thrill that was. and we talked about his career. i remembered when he announced that john f kennedy had died and told the world and with that very simple gesture of taking off his glasses and then pausing. and you see him physically choked up, i think, was an unbelievable way of communicating the pain and the shock that the entire nation was feeling. and similarly, when he was so joyful when he was covering the space program and apollo 11 and he was speechless and you could see he was like a teenager watching this unfold. i remember all of these moments in time. and i think he sort of held our hands and got us through the good times and the bad times as well. >> well, it's hard to transition to weather after that, but we must do that. >> i'm afraid so. we're looking at a couple of showers out there now. >> okay. >> and maybe a couple sprinkles

11:26 pm
broad scale. primarily east and south. these storms that go south and head towards fredericksburg and these will go up and head towards baltimore. nothing severe at this hour. but some of the storms are pretty hefty. we have reports of very heavy rain out in leesburg as the storms go through there. not everybody is going to see a storm tonight. this is now in gaithersburg just north of rockville. and heavy rain. nothing severe. this is where it's going to go the next 60 minutes. it's going to go across alleghany and 108 and eventually 195. that will hold fairly well as the heavy storms do not anticipate anything severe. there are no watches and no warnings posted. back to the computer we go. we'll talk about tomorrow morning. partly cloudy, pleasant. a shower still possible. winds northwest at ten. and by afternoon partly cloudy, warm. not humid. a couple showers possible. but still a very nice day. high temperatures about 85 and winds northwesterly at about

11:28 pm
slight chance of a shower. the weekend is pretty nice. 85 on monday. a few storms. better chance for storms now on tuesday. mid 80s. a few storms on wednesday. then another pretty good chance of storms on thursday. we're back in the upper 80s and friday a couple of storms. temperatures almost 90. i was tempted to put 90 on. i did not. 89 next friday. >> okay. >> hum. >> it does start to get a little stormy. we have been very lucky. >> it has. just because there's a storm icon, doesn't mean it will rain all day. >> we'll be right back. >> it has landed. thanks a lot. >> oh, boy. >> thank you. >> boy. a we're going to besus brfoy teminu. >> whenmi walter says something, i'm speechless.
