will keep us in that pattern for a little bit longer. so not bad at all. let's begin with a look at weather headlines and the weekend will continue to be very much on the pleasant side with temperatures staying above seasonal. and we've got holiday monday to keep an eye on. could we see a shower? we'll give the answer to that as well. and as we move into late week, things will become a little bit unsettled. but for today, things aren't going to be all bad and as far as yesterday was concerned, take a look at these highs. some 11-12 degrees above seasonal. 80 degrees for national. the same for dulles. and 81 at baltimore. this morning not starting out bad. fairly comfortable outside. you saw the blue skies. 56 degrees at national, 52 at gaithersburg. to the west we have 50 at martinsberg. and to the north cooler, 49 at hagerstown. and up the mid-atlantic, cooler air kicking in there. 48 degrees for boston and 47 at new york. and this is all associated with a frontal system we'll talk about in a minute because we
have south -- we are south of the frontal system. take a look at 37 here. wow! they are getting the cooler air pushing in just to the north of that same frontal system that we're referring to. take a look at the tropics. tropical storm otto was a category one hurricane. yesterday in the early part of the evening hours. but now it's downgraded to a tropical storm as about 11:00 last night. heading well off, expected to take a very sharp turn here. but losing it is tropical characteristics but expected to fizzle out. high pressure in control for the mid-atlantic. keeping skies fairly clear. but let's look at radar. because we have a frontal system to keep a close eye on here. this is continuing to the south, but will move back to the north as a warm front through the course of today and become a cold front again before becoming stationary over pennsylvania and starting to slide down. but it will set us up with the
chance of showers as we move through into holiday monday. no showers today though for the packers-redskins game. sunny and mild. 75 to 78 degrees and kickoff about 1:00. and it will be 71 by the time kickoff happens. so 75 by midday today. our high will be 81 degrees. no shortage of sunshine for you. i hope your planning something outside because it's a good decision. so very sunny and pleasant. for tonight, partly cloudy, then we'll see the sky start to clear out and becoming mostly clear. your overnight low around 56 degrees. we have a light southwesterly breeze at 5-10 miles per hour. here is that five-day forecast. warming up to 85 degrees tomorrow. but a chance of showers. we have a keep an eye on that for you. it looks like into the late afternoon and even the evening before it starts to kick in. very spotty and scattered at this point. that could change. so we'll watch it. showers as well on tuesday. melanie and sarah. >> thank you, gwen. well the burgundy and gold

texas and rams. they gave up 30 plus points to the texans and to -- and the rams. but they only gave up 12 last week and the win against the eagles. but today with green bay back in town, they'll have to be on their best behavior if they intend to pull out a big w over the pack attack. >> we have to be consistent for four quarters. dallas game we played well. texans we played 3 quarters and had a debacle in the 4th. rams was awful. and the eagles was great. we have to be consistent. sky is the limit for this defense because we are playing consistent. >> we will have a live post game show after the game. and college, tie rod taylor, hosting central michigan. hokies up 10 in the second and then taylor will find some more

they're a proud group. >> caps 1-1 so far this season into it is time for this week's install amount of off the wall. wisdom martin joins me to discuss randy moss and possible wizard name changes and you have to hear them to believe them. >> reporter: welcome to off the wall. wisdom martin and dave ross. what say you this week? what are we going to talk about. >> we have some big topics. we'll start it off with football. how about randy moss this week trading from the new england patriots to the vikings? i ask you, wisdom martin, good trade or bad trade and why? >> he was young and didn't have a superbowl ring. >> you haven't answered the question. >> reporter: no. bad trade. bad trade. because randy moss is just a guy who runs down the field, straight down the field and takes his jump balls. if it were that easy in football, he would have 100 touchdowns every week. you run deep and we'll throw
the ball up and you catch it. with the raiders -- enough said. and patriots, and who cheats all of the time. they didn't win when they had it. forget about randy moss. he's washed up and not an impact player. move on. >> you are very worked up. and you are very wrong. it is a great move for the viking and here is why. >> reporter: tell us why, mr. ross? >> because they are under cuts of winning a superbowl because they have brett favre. >> who throws interceptions in the playoffs. >> and can throw to adrian peterson all day. and they'll get syndey rice in a couple of weeks. >> not a game changer. >> and then single coverage everywhere else, they will be running free. >> you are wrong. >> great move minnesota. >> i would tip my hat if i had one on. >> reporter: and let's talk about changing the wizards basketball name to something else. >> smooth segway. >> reporter: if you were going to change the names, what would
you change them to? >> the washington wizards, i think we all agree in tv land, nobody likes the name wizards. >> and the colors are atrocious. >> and let's make a change. i've got three names that i'd like to throw out to you. >> reporter: hit it. >> my first one, the washington statesman. and then the second one is the washington commanders. >> i actually like that. that was on my list. commander-in-chief. >> i don't believe it, we agree. and this is my winner and this is the one to put in as a write- in, the washington ballers. straight-up ballers. that's what we do. come play us and we'll play you up. that is my number one selection. >> reporter: i knew that agreement would come to an end. no. this is not right. let's go with -- that's the reason i'm holding this, because i did my research.
let's go with the washington fedderals. >> that's okay. >> reporter: so you don't like that. this is a good one. the washington flights. you can see it. because you can see all of the jerseys and air force one. how about the -- you have the commanders. but number one, the washington wisdoms. the w. and the w., you can't beat it. so washington wisdoms. ted, call me i'll sell you the name. you can have it. the red, white and blue. the w. >> go to myfoxdc.com and please give me a better choice than that. >> reporter: the washington wizards, i'm telling you. you can see the people walking around with me on their shirts? >> wow! >> the washington wisdoms. it would be probably the worst
idea of all time. could you imagine people walking around with a picture of wisdom martin for a wizards shirt. >> wisdom can imagine that. he's like, i like that. >> but i think the one thing that is serious, we all want a name change. no offense, but the wizards -- does that give any indication of d.c. at all? >> you can change the name, it won't change the team. >> whoa, melanie, that was directed at you ted leon. >> change the name and change the image. >> but maybe if you change the name and people get excited and buy the merchandise. >> although the jersey mock- ups, the design you have throughout, i think that needed some work. maybe a little bit. >> we'll work on that. the art department will get on that. >> thanks, dave. well here you go. this guy he walked right up to some people, even allowed them to pet him. when we return, more of this incredible video of a deer making friends with a maryland couple.
