that potential for rain but it doesn't look like we're going to see much, or practically any. just some clouds i think actually throughout the immediate beltway. temperatures getting warmer as we head into the work week. so despite a frontal passage looks like we're going to stay dry, and it is actually going to get milder. so temperatures reaching back into the 80s in the work week. 70. in m that is sass right now, 70 also at bwi. 70 degrees in frederick. it's a popular number right now. on satellite you can see that approaching cold front, and you can also tell that it's weak. just a little bit of cloud cover. it's a very thin line of moisture. and on 9 futurecast we'll track that moisture as it moves toward the d.c. metro. this is a look at noon. it's still completely clear. we are going to see a good amount of sunshine, especially on monday. then that line of showers develops along the spine of the
appalachians. i think that's going to wring out the last of the moisture in the. as this front moves through the d.c. metro we are completely dry. overnight patchy fog could develop, especially south and west of the beltway. 49 to 5 for your lows. tomorrow morning 50s and 60s. partly sunny skies. winds becoming southeasterly. then out of the south, 5 to 10 miles per hour. that's going to help to warm us up. that is the airflow in front of the actual frontal passage. that's going to happen on monday night into tuesday morning. on monday afternoon 73 to 79 for your afternoon highs. over the next three days we are going to keep those weather alerts green. partly cloudy skies, mostly sunny and warmer on wednesday with a high of 93. is it october on wednesday? yeah, we're going to see temperatures feeling more like late summer. 83 again on thursday and friday. we finally have a chance for rain as we're heading toward friday and saturday of next week. in fact, saturday looks like it could be a little bit on the
stormy side as that cold front actually moves on through and high temperatures returning to around normal by next sunday. but it looks like a gorgeous work week, guys. i wish that i could have brought that weather on the weekend. it was a nice weekend, right? >> yeah. >> it is going to be even better. >> my weekend is tuesday and wednesday so that's good. >> well, that's your weekend. redskins. >> we're going to give you an update. ugly game to watch. >> a w is a w at this point. >> still a hung jury when it comes to the skins. i'll tell you whether it's panic time or time to put away the pep toe, the pink stuff. a major case of ulcers after this performance in buff low. we're going to talk about that and hear

well, well, well. it's impossible to really know what the story line will be going into any nfl season but i'm not sure sports journalists here were ready for this. rusty quarterback, inexperienced second after the accident, you could sort of see that coming. but embarrassing at times? i don't think anybody was ready for that dialogue when it came to the redskins but it's been a little bit embarrassing out there today, particular on defense, although things starting to look up. pierre garcon have caught a td pass. raiders jumping out 14-0 after one period. if you are keeping score, the skins have been outscored in the first quarter. it's been a tough one to watch, quite frankly. neither defense has been grade. we'll have highlights for you tonight at 11:00, butts 17-14,
so that is something to hang your hat object. redskins with the lead by three. let's move on to other members of the nfc. giants-chiefs. tom coughlin has to be wondering what the heck have i gotten myself bay? alan smith to shawn mcgrath right down the center. big mac carving up the giants' d. 111st downs. giants 0-4 for the first time since 1987. they lose 31-1 as the red rockers just rolling this afternoon. all right, of course, the seahawks the most impressive team of the first quarter this season, but houston up 20-3 until matt schaub throws this one to richard sherman to it. in overtime, steven haws could. seattle, happy dude. they win. we talk about parity every year in the nfl.
example, baltimore ravens versus rookie quarterback versus rookie quarterback in his fourth start. i like those odds for the ravens, but, think again. john harbaugh, mama said there'd be days like this. joe flacco looking, looking. he throws that into, what, quadruple coverage? he hits marlon brown who is quickly becoming one of his quick targets. this rookie quarterback, like most up and down. this one, up. the bills were missing two starters in the second army. flacco said, that's okay, i'll throw to the everyone else who is out there. 5-6, ravens 0 for 2 on the road. they lose 23-20 today. >> when you throw the ball to them five times you don't give yourself -- you don't keep yourself on the field and give yourself enough opportunities
to take advantage of that. >> we didn't play well. we didn't play well at all. i'll take responsibility for that. it was a poor performance. >> coach harbaugh taking responsibility for it. flacco lost that one. how about the browns? brian hoyer with the parabular ball there. browns win 17-6. everybody 2-2 in the afc north execht the cereals who, oh by the way, hoping the change of scenery would help. adrian peterson is good on any continent. ♪ sometimes i feel i gotta run away ♪ ben roethlisberger just banged up today. pittsburgh off to its worst
start, 0-4, since 1968. no reason to show you bucs highlights except this. today he got the start have after josh freeman was put on the pine. let's take a look at it. there is magic mike. didn't do much. threw a lot of short passes, like this one, for the score. the bucket, and they give him the ball because it's his first touchdown, but he couldn't play defense. arizona coming back. carson palmer, zip, zip, zip. arizona wins 13-10. and finally, the nats finish their season, 162 in the books. davy johnson finishing out. the nats lose today 3-2. but a pretty good year. 10 games over .500 they end. so not a bad season at all. >> and obviously davy won't be back. any hints on who might take his

>> pelley: syria's the problem from hell. there don't seem to be any good solutions. >> well, we have a lot of problems from hell right now. >> pelley: secretary of state john kerry is responsible for handling some of america's most precarious problems, but this week he helped achieve what appeared impossible. we were with him at the u.n. when he struck a deal for the surrender of syria's chemical weapons and when he started the talks that could diffuse iran's nuclear threat. rouhani said he'd like to have a deal in three to six months. is that possible? >> sure it's possible. >> basically all my voices i have are just thoughts, just voices telling me to harm myself or harm other people or kill people. and that's why i think i need to get on medication, because i don't want to hurt anyone and because
