bowl city right now. lots of activity. fans are already making their way to san francisco for all the fun and excitement. and the vince lombardi trophy is the big prize and fans are taking pictures of themselves with it at the nfl experience. this is one of the main super bowl 50 activities in san francisco. the nfl experience is where fans can can run into nfl players, play games and learn a little bit of history about football. 49er running back great roger craig was there today and held the trophy. there he is. >> you know, it's like having your first baby as a father you know how to hold the trophy. association it's old news to me now. but it still felt good to hold that trophy knowing that this trophy is going to be delivered to one of the two teams that's playing, carolina and denver. >> roger craig won three super bowls with the san francisco 49ers. i remember that team was hot. sports director don bell will be at the super bowl and he will be reporting live from
san francisco leading up to the big game starting next wednesday, february 3rd on "eyewitness news." also remember you can watch super bowl 50 february 7th right here on cbs3. all right, lots of fun and excitement out there on the west coast. on the east coast hopefully it will get a little warmer. >> very seasonable, had the nice sunshine, winds were kind of in check today so a nice day to get outdoors as long as you were bundled up. >> i was. >> we're going to warm things up especially as we head into midweek next week but the cool factor settling back in now that the sun has set on center city philadelphia getting a live look on skycam3. quiet conditions, so that was a different story just about a week ago when we had our fourth biggest snowstorm ever in philadelphia we picked up 22.4-inches of snowfall in just that one storm, which was actually the exact same amount as our average for the entire season. we had a half an inch of snow
previous to that storm, so pretty crazy that we matched that number exactly but our snowiest month in philadelphia on average is february with about 9-inches of snowfall on average. so, we still have to get through that. as we head into the next several days the precipitation chance is going to be rainfall. chance on monday with a few late day showers possible looking dry tuesday and thursday. and a pretty much good bet for rain on wednesday. even a few thunderstorms are possible with some very warm and moist air building in but temperatures today we hit average right on the head, 41 degrees in philadelphia, topped at 40 in allentown, 42 in atlantic city, so temperatures pretty consistent across the area. starting to cool off now, 38 degrees in philly. we're in the mid 30's in reading and calling in at 40 degrees right now in dover. wind speeds have a little bit of a breeze in some areas. winds picking up in wildwood at about 15 miles an hour but you notice that wind direction out of the south and that southerly component to our wind flow is going to drive in more mild air as we head into
the day tomorrow, but it is having a wind chill impact minor one feeling like 31 degrees right now in philadelphia, feeling like mid-20's in wilmington. overnight not quite as cold dropping down to 32 degrees. we got to 26 last night. partly cloudy southwesterly winds at around five to 10 miles per hour. for tomorrow running well above average, about 10 degrees above average. a mix of sun and clouds with just those light southwesterly winds at about 5 miles per hour so a good day to get outdoors on your sunday. storm scan3 showing us quiet conditions all up and down the i-95 corridor, just a few clouds up wind and a few snow showers well upwind. future weather going to show us as we head into tonight just patchy clouds moving through. very quiet through the day tomorrow. again, just some passing clouds. as we head into monday, we'll see a few more clouds and then you do notice a few showers popping up but very -- not widespread in nature at all, not very heavy, either. couple dots, blips on the radar as we led into monday afternoon and evening so we could see a passing late day
shower on monday but check out that high temperature. 56 degrees. heading into tuesday still well above average foreground hog day, a few morning clouds, otherwise sunshine. tuesday afternoon looks great and will feel great as well had well. wednesday up to 62 degrees. that would tie a record high temperature set back in 2006. we're not going to be spending a lot of time outdoors unless you have all the rain gear with you as heavy rain will develop and that possibility of a few rumbles of thunder, could even see a thunderstorm with some gustier winds wednesday late day and then cooling as we led into thursday back down into the middle 40's. >> wow. >> big warm upin store. >> boy. i happy. let's get that snow out of here. >> i know. >> you can barely park in the city. have you guys notice idea. >> i still can't get into my parking spot. >> i still can't find a space. i digress. i'm sorry. let's get right to sports. >> interesting game going on right now at a soldout wells fargo center. battle between first place and last place. the world champion warriors with the best record in the league right now are taking on the team with the most losses,
that would be your sixers. fans aim tout see steph curry who leads the league in scoring. sixers with an early seven-point lead but then the champs got hot. curry scored 13 points in the first half. and then his back court mate clay thompson runs on in and scores on lay up. thompson with 21 as golden state shot 65 percent in the first half of the right now warriors leading 73-54 at the break. spring training is just around the corner and today former fightan cole hamels made an appearance in our area. cole is giving kids some points at the sports clinic in garnet valley. the 2008 world series m.v.p. foundation sponsored that event. when cole was traded last july he promised he would still come back and help out in the community and cole kept his word. >> i made a promise to the city but because i think the support they've given us we want to try to uphold
everything we dodge every event we've had, all the money we've raise is there because of the support of the city of philadelphia. so we want to make sure that we're still upholding our end of the bargain. >> cole is one of the key pieces for the phillies great run when they won the world series an. cole said he was happy to be a part that of. >> to be able to experience philadelphia baseball like people talk about and to have the type of 31 we did for so many years, that's what you're going to miss. there's a great camaraderie not only from the teammates but from the organization and from the fans that is very hard to come by and to replicate. >> i miss cole. flyers on the all-star break until tuesday when they host the canadiens. most of them relaxing somewhere except claude giroux. he's the lone flyer representative. it's a three on three tournament with the winning team splitting a 1 million-dollar prize. claude says he likes all the changes.
>> a lot of teams are going into the playoff push right now but three on three you can go a little harder and there's not going to be a lot of hits and your percentage of being hurt is not as high so maybe guys will play a little harder and -- but it's going to be a lot of entertainment i think. >> to college basketball lasalle taking on dayton. explorers came into the contest way five game losing streak. second half lasalle down by six. price makes a triple. lead down the three. but the fliers take control. palmer scoring 18 points, eight rebounds and dayton beat lasalle 59 to 44. kerber upsets serena williams. williams was trying tie steffi graf's record of 22 grand slams single titles. this is the first grand slam title for kerber who was playing her first major final. that was a shock. >> that was definitely a shock. >> wow.
