specific treatment and patients recover on their own in tiply 7 to 10 days. however since viral and bacteriaial meningitis symptoms can be similar, you should call your doctor right away if you think you or your child could have it. >> turning now to chilling new developments in that deadly school shooting in washington state last week. investigators now say the teenage gunman lured his victims to the cafeteria. they say 15-year-old jaylen fryberg text them to meet him for lunch. and the five students were all sitting at the same table when he shot them and then turned the gun on himself. two 14-year-old girls were killed. the sheriff also revealed that fryberg used a handgun that was legally punched by a relative but they don't know how he got it. the man charged with kidnapping hannah graham will appear before a judge in fairfax county in a rape case this week. jesse matthew will not travel from alb marl county in

that frontal boundary moves our way and it helps the heat to build in our area. high temperature, charleston at 80. that's the kind of air we have coming in tomorrow. high tomorrow, 79 in d.c. tomorrow. 80 in culpepper. 80 in fredericksburg. maybe even some areas above the 80-degree mark. we'll wait and see. tomorrow's record high is 87. i don't think we'll get close to that number. forecast tomorrow, on the low side. no real impact from the weather. breezy and warm. you might need a jacket in the morning and take it off in the afternoon. that impact, no problem, right? temperatures 79 on tuesday, 69 on wednesday. but look at the drop here, down to 59 on thursday. so we drop considerably there with a 30% chance of a shower on wednesday. rebound a little bit on friday. still a pretty nice day for
halloween. i think it's really looking good. but then the next day, saturday, 48 degrees on saturday, rather windy conditions during the day, and not just windy, but with that cold, we'll see windchills in the 30s, i think on saturday. so we go from 80 tomorrow to a windchill of around 35, 38 degrees on saturday. that's a pretty good drop. sunday a high temperature of 53 degrees after a low of 37. so we'll be very cold. daylight saving time comes to an end. set the clocks back. just in case you're thinking about halloween, look at this forecast. if you got the kids going out, it's not looking bad at all. 5:00 looks good. chance of late showers, yes. but how late? i think after around the 10:00 hour. by that time most of the kids are counting their hershey bars and trading with their siblings. >> 10:00 is too late for trick or treating.

our team. i got that much confidence in ventura. i just think we're going to go to game 7. >> good game between the redskins and cowboys. the game in overtime right now. tied at 17 apiece. the redskins haven't lost -- haven't won a primetime game in their last seven chances. hopefully that ends tonight. >> who'da thunk it? >> no one. >> they are smoking! >> and this defense is on fire. on fire.
