Not quite Stormy Monday, but just as bad

Good Morning. I'm Monica Norton and I'm sitting in for Lori Aratani. She has taken off for Los Angeles where the weather is mild, even partly sunny. Wish I could say the same for here.

The Capital Weather Gang says it will be wet, windy, even a bit chilly. Some may be saying about time. Turns out last month was the hottest September on record since 1980. The average temperature was 75.5 degrees, five degrees above normal. We'll be lucky to reach 60 degrees today. There's no denying it -- it's officially fall. Time to break out the boots. Or galoshes today. Grab an umbrella and jacket, too.

Despite the cool temps, I suspect many in Washington may still be feeling a little warm and fuzzy after Sunday's 17-12 win by the Redskins over the Eagles. Quarterback Donovan McNabb got a nice reception from his his former team. Although by the end of the game I'm guessing many in Philly were ready to see him go.

Once you're done replaying yesterday's game, take a look at what you might have missed this weekend:

Check out The Cost of War, reporter Christian Davenport's look at how traumatic brain injuries are affecting soldiers exposed to blasts that rattle and damage the brain.

Today, read about how Montgomery County spent $2 million to purchase the home featured in Harriet Beecher Stowe's Uncle Tom's Cabin only to find out it's not the cabin. Now officials are trying to figure out what to call the still historic property.

And a number of people are expressing concern over the State Department issuing a "travel alert" Sunday, cautioning American travelers of potential dangers in Europe after an investigation uncovered information that al-Qaeda appeared to be plotting attacks on cities there. No one is saying you shouldn't travel abroad, just be aware and be careful.
