5:01 pm
even with light wind you feel temperatures dropping. let's start with the redskins forecast for tonight. panthers have rolled into town. and we think at the game time kickoff at 8:30 temperature will be about 31. so that's definitely cold. but winds where light and it's not eesy and temperatures into the upper 20s by the time the game wraps up. we have hi high, thin clouds out there tonight. we're down to 34 in the district and 8 in gaithersburg and 30 winchester and so we are looking at a night that's going to be rather cool. now we don't have big gusts of wind. but even with the light wind that we have right now there's a bit of a chill in the air. it feels like 28 as opposed to 34 for the air temperature in the district. and mid 0s at dulles and 29 for annapolis and 25 frederick. you want to bundle up for that. clouds coming through right now. they'll ab around the next several hours. but will clear out late tonight. that means we're really headed for cold night. we're going to drop into the teens in the suburbs. ov
5:02 pm
maybe 18 for frederick and martinsburg and 2 dulles and mannasas headed to 19 and 5 degrees here in the district. i have good news, though, if you have a lot of running around to do for the rest of this week. it is looking like a questionet week and today will be the coldest day for the rest of the week. we'll talk about chance force precipitation later. jim, back to you. >> all right, thank you, sue. we mentioned redskins gearing up for "monday night football" action tonight they're taking on your line apanthers at fedex field. cowboys did the redskins a favor they beat the buccaneers which means if the redskins can beat the can therz and they're having a great season they will be in a position for 6th and final playoff spot with two games remaining in the season. we taunted him without the gloves and grant paulson is live inside the stadium tonight on the field with with what we can expect and grant this say big match-up. >> it absolutely s you're right not often you can say old friends in the division the dallas cowboys helped the redskins out.
5:03 pm
night. three games to play for the redskins, 7-5-1 simple math. if they win all three games they make the employoffs and if they lose at any point they will need help. a lot on the line as they get back to fedex field where they have not played in a calendar month. you have to go back to the 19th of last month to find the redskins beating green bay packers under the bright blinds of primetime and i break through game on a cold, windy night. hope to channel something similar if shawn mcvay or jay gruden. there's a lot at stake for the redskins that won four at straight at home. and in fact, won ten of the last 14 at home and suddenly this place is tough for visitors to play. i'm not sure any player has more on the line than josh normal veteran quaerlt back in the first season in washington. remember the panthers, where he became a star last year in carolina, as one of the premium players in the position of all of football, rescinded franchise tag they slammed on norman this off
5:04 pm
they would pay him top five played player money in the position and decided we don't need him we have enough pass rush. they let him walk in free agency. first team to bring to sight was redskins and they demanded a contract be done. he made no bones about the fact he's frustrated he was unset with the decision of panthers to move on from him. he'll get a chance tonight to play former team and former sparring partner cam newton who he said he's competitive with and everything from practice field to playing checkers and pickup basketball teams out of the complex in charlotte. one player to keep an eye on is kirk cousin splendid over the last two years. lock at record, 9-4 mid point of the year he as highest quarterback rating in football and more so than elite passers in the game dating back to middle of last season when he had you like that moment in a come from behind game against the tampa bay bucks.
5:05 pm
