the freezing mark in short any time here today. so the bottom line is this: make sure you're adequately bundled up, especially to send the kids out to the school bus stop here, pretty brutal, 38 degrees, 42 by lunchtime, and not much better come the right home. again, this is substantially cooler than average by almost 10 degrees, and when talking about the windchills, makes it feel that much worse. quiet conditions come this mid week. very busy travel period for so many of us leading up to the thanksgiving holiday. but we are actually tracking storm system here in our area thanksgiving day. so i will walk you through the impact of what the rest of the seven day has up its sleeve later in the show. >> oh, looking chilly out there, katie, thank you so much. good morning, everyone, happy monday. so take that warning and run with it, bring winter coats today. and gloves. make sure, bundle up those little kids out for recess. schuylkill highlights moving in the eastbound direction at the boulevard, looking good, earlier this morning, on the

worse just yet, but only three days of measurable rain here in philadelphia. and the monthly total for those three days is not even a half inch of rain. we can really use some rain. and it looks like maybe later in the forecast, talking maybe leading into december, that possibility does return, but for now, don't bank on it. now, let's take a look what's going on here with our eyewitness weather watch ers, check in with them, as well, temperatures currently kind of uniform, cold. you know? we do have some pretty decent win though coming in here, and let's check out s reports. >> westerly winds flow, west chester, 32 miles per hour, and that's sustained wind flow, guys. 25 miles per hour from jason in middletown. even in the teens, even if it is coming out of the southwest, for fran in nottingham, kennel in willingboro, still will feel so much colder because it is just chilly outside as it is. phil chestnut section, 15 miles per hour, and the list goes on, generally finding the teens, few of you are a little bit less when it comes to that wind flow, but
regardless, it is cold outside even if the winds is not glowing blowing. so kinds of the story of the morning here. the chill okay. we sort of new that was going to be here, but you have to factor in the wind. for how it will actually make it feel. looking at storm scan, whole reason we have the win, this storm trying to pull away. might see few flurries up in the poconos, maybe even traveling the new jersey turnpike, traveling to new york something like, that but what happens is, low pressure trying to retreat. high pressure trying to take its place. and you ends one this almost winds tunnel effect, because tight pressure gradient, in short, it is with between those areas of pressure you see the winds picking up. that's why it is staying windy through today, even still pretty breezy into tomorrow. so, even though it is easing up little bit. it is not as harsh, up to 48, little brighter, still breezy gusts into the 20's, no problem. wednesday should be very quite he will travel day. we know that's busy travel day as it is, good news, maybe even sprinkle. and then on thursday, we do have a disturbance pushing through it, looks like it is probably fizzled by that point. so probably few spotty showers
at worse on thanksgiving, otherwise clouds, hit 55 friday. at that point for "black friday", partly sunny sky, weekends at this point too also looking pretty good. expecting some sun overall, chance of shower on saturday. temperatures are going to be remaining in the low and mid 50's, which is where they should be. so, it is front loaded cold for now, meisha. >> that's what it looks like, all right, katie, thank you so much for that. and katie just talking about the windy conditions. and yes, it has already affected our commute this morning. few downed trees out there, not to mention we also have some accidents out on the roadways, so first, 95 south at cottman, see really starting to heat up pushing in the southbound direction, so if you head into center city if you have to take interstate 95 i suggest give yourself few extra minutes. taking a peak at the ben franklin bridge, looking good. we looked at this about a half hour ago or so. looking a lot like this. starting to increase volume ever so slightly moving in the westbound direction into center city. overall ben franklin bridge, big thumbs-up, looking good. we did have, sounds like, we still do have this overturned vehicle here in cedar, skip
adder pike, sounds like still out there. heads up on that, lanes blocked. that will start to slow you down. also we have another accident here, route 422 eastbound at route 100. and this downed tree, that has now been cleared. this is our second one of the morning, that's now clearing. the first one on the schuylkill. that cleared as well. so route 611 looking actually a-okay right now. also we have a disable bus new jersey turnpike that has already been cleared. but we have a lot of construction, we will get to that coming up in the next 15 minutes, rahel, back to you. >> meisha, see you then thank you. on the cbs-3 health watch, researchers say family therapy may be the trick to helping children manage they're motions and behavior. according to the american academy of pediatrics, family focus therapy goes a long way. found up to 10% every young children exhibited disruptive disorders including adhd and san sigh at this, researchers say family interventions had more lasting effect than medication. >> and another study finds, the worse you sleep, the hard he it may be on your kidneys, found the connection between
short and fragmented sleep with worsening kidney function. in a study using patients with chronic kidney disease, they found that with every extra hour of nighttime sleep, the risk every developing kidney failure dropped. >> and before you leave on your thanksgiving get away, make sure to pack your medical information, new survey by doctors in florida find one in four vets vacation include trip to the emergency room. they say travelers should keep important medical info on their cell phones, keep refill prescriptions and carry on luggage, and getting travel insurance they say is also a good idea. >> good advice. losing power is never convenient, if you lose electricity during the winter months, generators can help you keep the lights on, house warm, but which is best for you? well, in this week's angie list report, a look at what you should know if you are thinking of getting one. >> do you have a plan in place if your electricity goes out? >> that's usually my first question. when i walk to up a homeowner, is well, let's start, you know, how do you want to live if your lights go off?
>> generator can be a great solution. >> sound of the generator kicking on when the power is out in your neighborhood can be music to your ears. >> but you need to determine if you need a stand by generator to power information your house or if you can get by with less sensible portable generator. >> with a akw generator we can power up two refrigerators, a gas furnace, several outlets, and your microwave if you need. >> portable generator costs around a thousand dollars. in might help you get the bear necessities, maybe your furnace running, making sure you have your sum pump going, important during a storm. but looking for full house functionality during a storm, you might want to consider a full house generator, which is going to cost anywhere from five to ten times that much. >> installing stands by generator requires a license electrician, who will locate the unit near a power source. just a few feet away from your home. he'll also install a transfer switch, that automatically detect when the main power goes out, and triggers the generator to turn on.
now, portable generators are more commonly used for emergency power, and can easily be stored in a shed or garage. they usually require gasoline to operate and should never be used in a garage or an enclosed area, because they give off carbon monoxide. stay with us here on "eyewitness news" this morning. >> day to give back. joining together to give the homeless a hot meal on a cold day.
