6:14 pm
>> reporter: we still had to coax him to sing for us. >> my pitch pipe. ♪ oh say can you see >> reporter: after last week's performance the redskins asked d.c. to come back again this sunday and although he says he's more of a nats' baseball fan. he says last week was something special and expects nothing less this sunday. >> who doesn't like their hometown team to be on the verge of doing something great? >> reporter: the name might fool you, dwight clyde, but known as d.c. washington all his life and not even a native. >> born and raised in the state of arkansas. >> reporter: you can find him in springfield, virginia where he's the cochoir director. that's where he'll be before he heads to the redskins/seattle game. >> going to do what i did last week. i'll walk out on the field and i'll sing. and i'll walk back off the field. it's not about me. ♪ >> reporter: in fairfax, surae

6:17 pm
a leesburg, virginia neighborhood has been battling a problem of unwanted guests for a couple of months now. dozens of vultures have been nesting and causing damage to property there. as mole mole is down -- ken molestina is down there right now. ken, what's going on? >> reporter: well, get this bruce. we're talking about a lot of vultures. just so you know. we're here along the 200 block of mayfair drive and up to now these vultures have had some pretty comfy digs in these trees above us but that's all about to change. get this, 200 vultures upwards of that have been roosting on the branches and trees that line the backyards of this neighborhood. neighbors have had enough. they say these birds are unsightly and they damage property and their feces stinks and folks don't enjoy being outside. but that's going to change. the u.s. department of agriculture wildlife services will be coming to the neighborhood on monday the get them out.
6:18 pm
they're going to use lasers to spook the birds away. these folks don't care where they go as long as they leave their backyards. >> they look horrible and they just -- they make a mess, they leave their feathers and feces and stuff all over the place and they're kind of scary. they're a little bit intimidating when they fly in because they fly low and circle around. >> reporter: yeah, these neighbors just so you know bruce, they say they can't wait for the vulture removal service to take place a little background on what's going on over here. a neighbor from across the street initially had the problem and she'd been dealing with it for years. and after trying so many things to get the vultures out she finally just cut down her trees about five trees were removed from her property. but of course that meant the vultures went across the street and they took up residence in other homes in other trees. bruce back to you. >> okay we don't have a lot of time. i suppose it's one of the stories any neighborhood but ours, any idea or reason why the vultures picked that neighborhood, what's drawing them there? >> reporter: nobody knows. i mean there are some tall
6:19 pm
trees around here and they think that's the reason why. but how many neighborhoods do we have in the area with tall trees? but there's no real reason. bruce? >> ken molestina thanks a lot. what can we expect here tomorrow and next week? erica grow is here with the forecast. stay with us.
6:20 pm
6:21 pm
welcome back. i'm 9news now meteorologist erica grow. here's a look at the weather headlines, we have the pocket of a -- pocket of a flurry or sprinkle overnight. much milder weather in the forecast on sunday, it will be nice for the redskins' game and also for the ravens. chilly weather once again returns to the forecast on monday. right now, it is a chilly 32 in frederick. 39 in leesburg. 36 manassas and 38 fredericksburg and even in culpeper only 34 degrees right now. and you can see that shower activity on the way. on satellite and radar, even some snow here to the north. but i think the snow will mostly miss us to the north, maybe hagerstown, frederick a flurry tonight of sprinkle a possible down to leesburg and manassas.
6:22 pm
but most of us will actually be dry overnight tonight and you'll see that here on 9 futurecast. the possibility of a shower moving through but then into the morning hours, pretty much everything is skirting off to the east. so as we head through the day, we'll see more and more sunshine. and it looks great by kickoff for both games. the ravens and the redskins. the ravens have the earlier game this time. and that sunshine will stay with us through the rest of the day on sunday. and monday looks like a sunny day as well. overnight tonight lots of clouds a flurry or sprinkle. 25 to 32 so it will be chilly. with south-southwest winds at 5 to 10 miles per hour. partly cloudy and chilly in the morning with temperatures in the 20s and 30s. but not too much of a windchill. in the afternoon, that windchill will become a little bit more of a factor. west southwest winds at 5 to 15 and mostly sunny skies. and it will be chilly but nice and we're keeping it in the green zone for the next three days. lots of sunshine on monday and then look at these temperatures into the 50s on tuesday. and it gets even warmer than that in the seven day forecast. 55 degrees on wednesday.
6:23 pm
looks fantastic. mid 50s on thursday with rain arriving and 60 degrees on both friday and saturday. with that rain possibly a thunderstorm on friday. >> okay. >> 60 degrees. >> great. >> yeah. back in a minute with sports. stay with us.
6:24 pm
6:25 pm
well, redskins/seahawks, a little history there. the last two times washington made the postseason. seattle has served as their personal delete button. extinguishing burgundy and gold in both '05 and '07. so in a way the redskins are reuniting with an old girlfriend that's broken up with them twice. tempers boil when the two teams get together. last season actually the two got into a brief fracas when they got into it in seattle. deangelo hall. they don't like us, we don't like them. the intensity level tomorrow?
6:26 pm
>> seattle has been playinglights outtop both -- playing lights-out on both sides of the ball. the railroads are 0 of -- records are 0-0 now and may the best man win. >> we're trying to do everything perfect even in practice and film studies, this time of year you make one mistake it cost you. we're trying to keep the run going. >> i can't wait for that one tomorrow. basketball season because the redskins, they've stunk in years' past but they're going is well now it's sort of like mangal season already? indeed it is. maryland has a 12 game win streak going. not against great teams but 12 games nonetheless looking for lucky 13 today. how about the virginia tech hokies in the acc opener? doing a little dancing during warmups. fans showed up in large numbers, 17,000 today. alex lynn big fella drawing the double dip. that means layman is open. splash. the freshman came in averaging just 3 points a game. remember that. what did he have for breakfast
6:27 pm
this morning. ihop or he hops. how about the follow slam? he had 20 points and virginia tech were in orange but they needed groan. eric green crosses over but the hokies' defense awful. allen to the 10. the terps score 53 in the first half. how about the triple try from there? 3 of his 21. how about a point? a ukrainian exclamation point. maryland wins the 13th straight 94-71. hey coach? it seems like someone different stepping up every game. >> i don't know who our best players are. i really don't. and i think dez when the game is on the line can get to the foul line or the rim and he's really good. alex when he was playing great, you know he was separation. but shaq is coming on now. i think we all feel comfortable as coaches whoever we put in they can handle the situation and it's going to be fun to watch this team just continue to get better. >> it's a lot of factors that haven't been included in us playing and being the best team
6:28 pm
that we can so far. so once with you all click on the same cylinders it's going to be really, really scary for everybody in the acc. >> much more coming up tonight of course georgetown lost today. george mason a winner. so i'll have those highlights for you at 1:00 -- 11:00. >> also tonight the councilman says the skins are coming back within five years. and prince george's county responds also. tonight what's it look like? >> looks pretty good. just a flurry or sprinkle and staying chilly tonight. >> all right, we'll see you back here at 11:00. bye bye.
