high today about 6 # degrees. then for tonight, gradual clearing. rain showers during the evening. maybe even a couple of thunderstorms this evening. overnight, gradual clearing. 54 for your low as some of that cooler air begins to work its way in. tomorrow, we are only up into the mid-60s. it will be quite breezy tomorrow as well. friday and saturday, cooler conditions. highs only around 06 degrees or so and then back into the mid- 60s for sunday. so we'll see cooler temperatures than what we have been used to for quite some time. now, we've got julie wright standing by for an update on traffic. >> it is a road servicing project that went awry. that is what v-d.o.t. is describing it. only the left lane will get you by here. it was a cop crete patching job that took place overnight. something didn't go quite as planned so therefore only one left lane is getting by in the main line of northbound i-59 leaving dumb president headed up to the prince william parkway. this is going to impact the commute and feed into the

to our facebook fan of the day right now, someone who calls himself mr. dog smith. he says he wants to hear some good news today like john beck will be starting in redskin game on sunday. >> we'll find out in a few hours. let's talk a little bit about it with the sports junkies right now. junkies join us from 106.7 the fan. good morning, guys. do we have the junkies this morning?
there they are. good morning. >> hello. >> what's happening. >> doing great. before we get to the redskins situation, i'm trying to understand this carson palmer trade and i say this because, when you look at quarterbacks that have been traded in the nfl recently, you look at the redskins sending jason campbell for a four round pick, donovan mcnabb for a sixth round pick and you get carson palmer that could go for potentially two first round picks. last i checked, carson palmer was no tom brady. this to me says if the redskins want to go get a quarterback somewhere else now, they have to trade their first round picks for the next 30 years. >> it is appear act of desperation bit oakland raiders and a win now mentality. they are 4-2. they got a great running game, good solid defense an i guess they are desperate for a quarterback once they lost jace son campbell. they get carson palmer. kudos to the bengals to get two first round picked for a guy they said they weren't going to trade.
>> it shows you how important the quarterback position is. they were left with bowler. they to h. to pay the price and get a real one. >> he is night premiere quarterback anymore. >> thank you. >> his best days are three or four years behind him. they didn't have a premiere quarterback before. they had a serviceable one. >> he is a huge upgrade over kyle bowler. you can't them to try to contend for the playoffs with him. is carson palmer what he was? no. >> can you imagine if this injury happened a week later. jot raiders would have been screwed because it would have been post-deadline and they would have been going with kyle bowler or someone else. it is a desperate move. >> carson palmer threw 20
interceptions last year. >> you kind of a punk move by carson pirm. he was under contract and he held them hostage. >> a great move by the cincinnati brass to be able to get anything for him. the redskins now, we'll get the decision later today. i say you got to go with rex grossman again simply because you put the faith in him as the starting quarterback. if he fails again, you pull him, he is done for the year but i think you got to give him the start on sunday. >> why? you are putting misguided faith in the guy who made a run to the super bowl back in the day but he is a guy who historically for every touch downhe throws he is going to they a pick and he turns the bull over at an alarming rate. >> but i think because you put faith in him and you picked him at the beginning of the year, you got to stick with this or you will flip-flop every game for the rest of the season. >> this is the spot they're in. frankly, he blame mike shanahan and bruce allen for this mess. they made a huge miscalculation in the off season that either grossman or beck could lead
this team to the playoffs. while it is still early and they are still 3-2, that is why we are in this mess. we have two losers. >> we're going to leave it on that. i'm not going to disagree with you there. we are back after. this it is the junkies at 106.7 the fan. we're back at 6:00 after this. big!
