10:46 pm
for the only touchdown of the game. griffin four of six for 70 yards. skins win 70-6. for rg3 it was a good -- 7-6. for rg3 it was a good debut. >> at the end of the day this is what we do for a ling. i played football a long time -- living. i played football for a long time. suit up as a redskin officially, it's something i'll never forget. >> we're trying to put him through as many situations as we can. i like the way he's practiced and handled himself. you can see the big play capabilities. does he have his arm strength. hopefully we keep getting better. >> we have get our next look at rg3 and the boys in burgundy next saturday night in the windy city of chicago. i'll there be and i'm kind of excited to see the new kid up close and in person. >> i'm thinking just a little bit excited. see you later. thanks.
10:47 pm
>> i knew there were going to be storms in the forecast. i guess it depends where you are, right? >> right. we thought there were going to be more storms. it turns out less storms. >> that's good, not a lot of damage or people maybe dodged that. >> we did have a little bit of wind damage around hagerstown, west of hagerstown and through hagerstown earlier this evening. it's actually been a beautiful evening. temperatures have cooled down a bit, still in the upper 80s in town. there is still humidity. again pretty good shot out there tonight. we start with sent until radar because generale did think everything was pointing towards the fact we -- again we really did think everything was pointing towards the fact we had some significant showers and thunderstorms developing. right now there's nothing for the city. a little more back up to the northwest where there had been storms tonight. it's been basically up to the northwest, kind of coming right along the mason dixon line
10:48 pm
through hagerstown and moving up into southern sections of pennsylvania. i want to take you farther south and southwest because that's where something is actually beginning to come together. this has crossed over 81. most of this little area is north of charlottesville now. so culpeper, you're right there. you're going to get some rain pretty soon, some thunder and lightning possibly gusty wind coming through for a time. eventually this will probably move up into fauquier county, prince william county and before it's all said and done i think we end up with showers coming across most of the southern sections of our viewing area here and maybe this comes far enough north that it brings a little bit of rain to the city. so again that's what we're keeping an eye on until the front gets through overnight tonight, early tomorrow morning. it's not going to go all the way through it looks like. we'll at least keep a chance of shower or thunderstorm in the forecast. again, not as widespread tonight as what we thought it
10:49 pm
was going to be. the forecast for the weekend, jet stream is actually taking a bit more of a dip. it's allowing cooler air, some slightly drier air to move in. the bulk of the cooler air will stay north of us. we will cool a little bit going into the weekend. this frontal system we've watched the last several days really does look like for tomorrow it will get hung up right around i-95. it will probably be sitting right on top of i-95. the best chance of rain tomorrow will be east of that boundary. i think if you're east of i-95 tomorrow, you stand a good chance of at least getting some showers, okay? we're not talking about sustained rain or anything, but at least a chance of some showers. if you're west of i-95 you're more likely going to be dry tomorrow all day. we'll have cloud and showers east of the city. sunday looks real nice at this point. the temperatures are only in the mid- to upper 80s.

now today's high temperatures for reagan national struggled, but did manage up to 88 with sunshine, dulles 86, bwi marshall 86. we've only cooled off to 82 tonight, so still a little warm out there, upper 70s out west of us in our western suburbs. here is the slow moving front, but notice all of the thunderstorms have been firing up ahead of the front. so until that gets through still a chance for that. this is our futurecast picking up on what i just showed you down to the southwest by 1:00 in the morning, tries to bring some of that up into the city, gets it out of here. we have clouds and sun tomorrow, again a few showers off to the east of us. sunday looks gorgeous. there's a little rain in there, but i don't think you need to worry about that too terribly much, sunday still looking pretty good. the forecast tomorrow, high temperature gets up to 86. remember showers possible east of i-95, beautiful sunday, 87, beautiful monday, a little

warmer, high 90, thunderstorms back in the forecast on tuesday and a little better as we get to the middle part of next week. >> looks good. thanks. we are now less than three months from the november election and attack ads are in full swing, but some message missteps by mitt romney's communication team may be overshadowing things. john robert is filling in for chris wallace on fox news sunday. earlier today i asked him if romney is in need of a sharper message. >> i think it's more than in the last couple weeks. this really started back when one of his chief advisors said that the healthcare bill was not a tax, that it was a penalty in the state of massachusetts. that really took away that talking point for the conservatives and then andrea stall came out recently and said if this guy joe soptic who is in this obama ad criticizing mitt romney had lived in massachusetts his wife could have had healthcare and she was
10:52 pm
criticized by conservatives for that, but i think in recent hours, if not days, the romney communication machine has gotten a bit better, particularly in response to that ad. they got served up a high handing curve ball they could hit out of the park with that and i think their response has been pretty forceful. unfortunately it comes at a time when mitt romney is in far more difficulty than he was five weeks ago now with his new fox news poll out that shows him nine points now rather than four points behind barack obama as he was in july. >> perhaps a bump would be picking a vice presidential running mate. you'll talk about that this weekend. >> we are. picking a vice approximately atmosphere running mate sometimes gets you -- vice presidential running mate sometimes get you a bump. in the grand scheme of things it doesn't help you much in november. if mitt romney wants to make up ground he needs to have some sort of a big event and i think the only big event that could happen between now and the convention would be to announce
10:53 pm
a very bold pick for vice president. there are many people who say well, rob portman, tim pawlenty, they aren't the big bold pick that mitt romney would have to make to really get noticed. he'd have to pick someone like chris christie from new jersey, marco rubio from florida or maybe -- and this is a man whose stock is rising -- congressman paul ryan from wisconsin. he is the darling of so many conservatives across the country particularly inside the beltway. mitt romney is being pushed very hard to put paul ryan on the ticket. the downside of that, though, is democrats can really make hay of the ryan budget plan. they just hate it and they have a number of great attack points on that front, plus the fact that other than driving our weiner mobile when he was in college a little while and flipping burgers at mcdonald's while he was in high school, the bullet of paul ryan's adult career has been spent in washington which might give the left a point to attack on

saying well, you know, governor romney, you said you were going to come here for washington to shake things up, but you're picking the same old insiders to run with you. >> it's a powerhouse panel this weekend, senator john mccain as well. john roberts on fox news sunday at 9 a.m. here on fox 5. we'll see you then. >> thanks. still ahead some words of wisdom. >> not dead, can't quit. i kept repeating this, not dead, can't quit. >> the quadruple amputee has some advice how to reach your full potential. >> and you may be able to get a discount on your iphone. we'll tell you how at 11:00.
