which isn't showing too much, although not a whole lot of stars or moon visible tonight thanks to the cloud cover. clouds have moved in as our next system approaches from the west. take a look at storm scan 3 and you can see where that front is. you can see a lot of cloud cover starting to move in across the area. it is dry for now but as we zoom back to the west, this is the system bringing all the changes. the center of the low right here, here's the cold front extending across portions of illinois down into missouri, much colder air already starting to make it into portions of the upper midwest. we're seeing warm air out ahead of this front but a few showers could get here in the morning. heavier rain tomorrow afternoon. quick look at the boardwalk plaza a little foggy out there tonight, not quite as foggy as last night but watch for areas of fog if you're out and about. otherwise temperatures are still mild. 46 in philadelphia right now. 47 in allentown. still hanging on to the 50s and as we head down south it's mild
as well even in the 60s in nashville and birmingham as well. cold air carves out a foot hold. minneapolis was just in the mid 50s a couple of hours ago. now down to 30. teens in rapid city. we hit 54 today in philadelphia, a full 5 degrees above average and tomorrow looks to be more than 10 degrees above average as we await the arrival of this front. but it's not a very nice day. clouds and drizzle, a couple of showers around in the morning. steadier rain comes through in the afternoon and evening. look at all that to the northwest tomorrow at 7:00 p.m. it comes through the city around 9:00 and at this time tomorrow we'll be tracking active radar, especially down the shore as that front starts tomorrow work its way off the coast. once we've got that front through, we've got a 2-phase cooldown. the first batch comes in wednesday into thursday but a stronger sharper push of cold arrives by saturday and that's when it's really going to start to feel like winter.
mainly cloudy overnight, not as cold. 45 is our overnight low and by the end of the week we'll be hard-pressed to get to 45 for a daytime high. that's the big change that's headed our way. watch for that lane late tomorrow. clearing, cooler wednesday, thursday sunny but chilly and then if we do pick up a snow shower it would be friday night into saturday morning. there's another chance sunday morning to pick up snow showers but temperatures this weekend may not make it past the 30s. >> as long as it's just a snow shower. >> thank you. >> hi, don. >> hi. we're talking about the birds tonight. learning from losing. doug pederson stays positive. and a 21-year-old guard goes off in south philly.

you can't substitute that. and the guys have to know that and that's my job to make sure that they understand that. >> after the game, the eagles flew from seattle to l.a. they'll play the 9 and 3 rams on sunday. we're heading west as well. our live reports from southern california start on wednesday. i will not be doing the heismans, i don't think. finally an easy match-up, the phoenix suns only have 8 wins. they have the worst defense in the nba. no way the sixers would lose to them. >> don't say it. come on. >> second quarter ben simmonds playing with the flu. home team down by 4. joel embiid had 22 pounts, 12 rebounds and four blocks. but the sixers couldn't cover devon booker.
