5:06 pm
with the franchise quarterback. they benched robert griffin iii in favor of the third string quarterback. the head coach told the quarterbacks individually and then the team this morning. what happened? >> reporter: well jan one of the reasons why he was brought in was his success in the past working with quarterbacks. they don't have a franchise qb. they're trying to find the person that will give them the best chance to win. he wants all the film tape of all the games that griffin, kurt cousins and kirk mccoy played in the season and he says that mccoy is the redskins best option as quarterback as you said he told the guys this morning and that the rest of the team found out this afternoon. griffin not surprised. he was upset with the choice as you could get the sense of that from him in the locker room, but after going 0-3 since returning from the ankle injury, he was forced to make a
5:07 pm
change. he was asked why not let griffin play the rest of the season? and he said well you could make a case for that, but you could also make a stronger case for mccoy being 2-0 and wanted to give this team a spark. >> we're searching for that spark and he was 2-0 as a starter and came in relief of the second half of the titans game. i thought i would change it up. >> yeah, i've talked to robert. that's a hard decision. and it is just a hard thing. and the fact that he has handled great, is a great teammate, but i did not expect anything less from him. >> reporter: and now griffin, he chose not to spoke to reporters today, but as he was leaving the locker room, he said i'm fine, i'll be strong. he is now the backup and kurt
5:08 pm
cousins is the number three quarterback. we'll have the reactions from the teammates coming up later on in the show. in redskins park, kristen berset, wusa9. >> of course fans have all kinds of things to say about rg3 getting benched. the reporter stephanie ramirez talked to fans on both sides of the thanksgiving table. >> reporter: is rg3 cooked like a turkey? do we stick a fork in him and say that he is done? >> nah, i wouldn't say it's done. you've got to respect the bird. >> reporter: mixed reactions is what we got out in dc today, rg3 getting benched for sunday's game. some say that they have had enough of the losses where it will be time for him to go. >> it's been disappointing. i know he's played a couple of games, but he's out of the rhythm. >> and rather that gruden or that they are overthrowing, all of a sudden he's forgotten how to play it seems like.
5:09 pm
so yeah, let's give colt a chance, he's won two games. let's see what happens. >> reporter: and the redskins fans, and that this is more of the missed situation. >> and that is the leader and i think that they need to look at what they can do to make it look better like catching the ball when they throw it. >> and maybe i'm more of having a little faith in them. >> more than likely that it is what they would always do here to go somewhere else and shine. and that's what they always do, you know. i mean that there is something here for it. >> reporter: they had plenty to say about coaching and management. but the one thing is for sure that they are about to be glued to the tv to see how the switch goes. in the district receive knee ramirez -- stephanie ramirez, 9 news. we've got new information tonight on the plan for dc's

5:40 pm
industry. one is selling pot in the shape of a mini christmas tree. many are selling their high-end products at bargain basement prices. >> those prices represent more than a 50% discount off of the every day top shelf marijuana. just as they would at macy's or any other big box store. >> usually you hear of black friday sales being big screen tvs, video game consoles. are people really going to turn out to get marijuana? they hope that the deep discounts will lead to a bump in their holiday sales and an increase in the new customers. all right, thinking of stress? getting there on time. wait until you see how some of the nation's air carriers would ramp up their operations to make sure that you would get there. and robert griffin iii out, mccoy in. i'm kristen berset.
5:41 pm
coming up we'll hear from the coach and the players on the big change. and those thanksgiving gas prices, they are not driving us quite so crazy. if you are filling up on your way on out of town that you could get a good deal at the shell located in baltimore avenue for you. you can fill up there for just $2.74 a gallon.
5:42 pm
5:43 pm

experts say they consume about 3,000 calories and 230 grams of fat in one thanksgiving meal. let's say you want to lessen the risk of gaining the holiday weight. start with a walk or jog. also jump start your metabolism. experts say that many try not to eat before that it takes 20 minutes for you to register that you are full as they would help you avoid that nap from overeating. all right, this is a live look where thousands of those people are coming in, a familiar scene that will be
5:45 pm
typically the start of the busiest travel weekend of the year. >> and with today's winter weather, it's making it harder for them to get to the family to grandma, right? >> they g a look inside one major airline's travel war room as the staffers, they would try to keep them on schedule. >> the clock is ticking towards the departure and on the airlines and their thanksgiving race against mother nature. the meteorologist at the network operation center in chicago have been tracking the east coast storm with increasingly threatening winter weather. >> this feels sort of like mission control. >> it is. if they prompt the delays or cancellations, it'll be made of their team working around the clock to keep them running. >> what could really huts we get the mix. >> reporter: they are tracking
5:46 pm
everyone over the u.s. right now and that it will be even busier that during that time that they will expect about 2.5 million passengers, nearly the population of faux. >> that we are looking for issues that could arrive. and preventing it before the customer would ever know that ideally, really i don't want you to know that they would exist that i want everything to go seamless. >> reporter: it will be on this screen turning red, warning the sides. >> and it will be an option to help the flights a day to land where and when they are suppose to. cbs news, chicago. >> this is a red alert day. >> we're hooking at temperatures above freezing which is good and all the accumulating snow is over. that's good. right now at 37 at national and the dew points are above freezing where they are not
5:47 pm
going to make it below freezing downtown with the winds out of the north at about 12. okay doppler radar, you can see the back edge of the precipitation over the past couple of -- couple of hours with the rain pushing on through the immediate metro area. but now you're done. and even back in to culpeper you'll be done where they would end late as you move north and east of town as we'll zoom in a little bit of the snow again nothing is accumulating anymore. it's not snowing hard and it's not above freezing, pretty much everywhere. some light snow and up 270. the roads are wet now that we will be concerned with the black ice for you later tonight. now, we'll talk about the new snowfall totals. for that we have a new list for you. we'll take it out to erica grow on the weather terrace. >> thank you, topper. the light snow in the last half hour, even that has tapered off with some precipitation, but holding my hand out, i can't see anything landing on my glove there. so everything, it will be so tiny and minute that it's not showing up anymore. but that we do have the lingering snow that i did not touch this at all today that we
5:48 pm
had maybe half an inch on out here at the weather terrace where it will be that very packable snow for you and that it is not going to stick around very much either. we'll take a look at the snowfall side. in west virginia that they would pick up 18 inches. and a lot less in gaithersburg with the melting that it has been hard to measure that snow today. 1.4 inches in gaithersburg. they would pick up six inches, which will be one of the higher totals that we have. in west virginia that it will be 3.2 inches. so it's not a bad storm in the higher elevations. topper back to you. i guess that the question is if it is snowing six inches that it will melt four. did they really snow that much? that's the old tree in the forest right now. think about it. 34 downtown in gaithersburg and 36 in culpeper. so these temperatures, they will still be well above freezing. but with that said, that it
5:49 pm
will be 33 and 34 on the overpass. and it could be black ice. and so please that it will be a big concern tonight. in town that it will be the problems. and that they will be giving it to you tomorrow morning, but don't slip on the driveway. cold this morning, maybe a flurry. still cold and sunny for black friday if you want to fight the clouds and you want to fight a little bit of the cold temperatures in the 70s. our future cast is 8:00 tonight and everything is gone and maybe a flurry here or there and that the storm is pulling away from us, taking aim. and it will be the mid-30s. and then by 10:00, down freezing in martinsburg and up to 32. so that is what we are concerned about and to remember that it might look wet that it will be frozen. it will not happen quickly, there won't be a flash freeze
5:50 pm
tonight. and temps will be critical. in fact by midnight p2 in gaithersburg and also up towards frederick and towards leesburg, even 35 down towards andrews. by the morning with a few breaks in the clouds. a little clipper passes tomorrow that you will be able to find clouds in the morning and temperatures in the mid-30s to the upper 30s downtown. and at 9:00 in the 40s and it will be partly sunny by 1:00 and 41. and it will be the 40s. and 50 miler on saturday, pretty nice for the game. the next seven days, the ravens, nice. temperatures in the upper 50s right here. and maybe rain or the snow shower, in the mid-40s.
5:51 pm
