good evening. our temperatures as we head into tonight will actually be colder than what we saw last night. so this is really going to be the coldest air of the season. as we take a closer look at headlines, we'll see a chilly eagles game. we'll see warm temperatures as soon as tuesday, though. right now looking outside we'll see mostly cloudy skies. we'll start to see the clouds decreasing heading into the rest of tonight. about three minutes ago we saw a few little snow flurries flying on our camera here. that was situated in camden. so nothing is really accumulating. everything is melting off. so we have really cold air aloft to give us the snow flurries throughout parts of town. for philadelphia, we're at 47 degrees right now. we're seeing a few clouds. our humidity is at 54%. the feels like temperature is 41 because our wind speeds are out of the west at 13 miles per hour. so we have the cold air coming
in. it's a really cold day for us, especially compared to where we have been the last couple of days. currently at 32 degrees in the pocanos. 33 in atlantic city. 41 in wildwood. temperatures in dover at 43 degrees. and tonight we're going to get down 4 to 7 degrees colder than what we saw yesterday. so well below our average. our feels like temperatures already in the 30s for allentown, parts of reading and dover. it will be a cold night ahead. and again, the coldest air of the season will be sitting right over us heading into tonight. and linger into monday. but one thing you'll notice is all the cold air quickly goes back to the north. cold air is going to make its return heading into tuesday and wednesday. so mild conditions are expected for us as we head into your seven-day forecast. the cold blast is here. it's not going to stick around. our average for this time of the year is 66. today we saw highs officially at 53. heading into tomorrow, 51 will be the high. so we will stay well below the average. so take a look at tuesday. we'll warm right back above average. so that's going to be good. we just have to get through
tomorrow. but tonight is going to be the coldest night of the season. freeze warning in effect for most of the area. that starts at midnight. that's going to continue all the way until 9:00 a.m. on monday. so a very cold commute on tap for you. our satellite radar shot shows a few little scattered showers moving in. and some of this is snow flurries coming in from the northwest. as we head into the next hour or so, we'll continue to see a chance of those really light sprinkles. but by 8:00 to 9:00, you will notice everything starts to clear up. we'll see clearing skies to give way to lots of sunshine heading into monday. that's going to set us up for a dry monday night football game. it's still going to be very cold. as we wake up tomorrow around 7:00 a.m., the feels like temperature in philadelphia, 27 degrees. 24 in allentown. and then as the lunchtime rolls around, temperatures will feel more like the mid-40s. so even colder tonight. we drop down to 31 for philadelphia tonight. 27 in pottstown. 25 in allentown. down to 29 in mount holly and our highs will be in the main to
low 50s. and that sets up for the monday night football game. we'll get below freezing for philadelphia. 26 for the suburbs in the north and west. we go back to the 60s heading into tuesday. 70s by wednesday. thank you, brittney. i'm john clark. the temple owls are in the top 25 poll for the first time since the '07s. we'll tell you where they rank and hear from the head coach. take a look, the giants have arrived. we'll tell you about the status of to odell beckham jr. and hear from the quarterback. that is next.
desk. >> i'm john clark with comcast sports net. a blackout tomorrow night at the linc. the eagles/giants will be in sole possession of first place. and the only loss is matt barclay played most of that game. they arrived this afternoon. eli manning is here on pace for a career here. odell beckham jr. didn't play all week but he's hoping to play through the hamstring injury tomorrow night. the birds don't want to go 0-3 in the nfc east. this is a big one. >> it will be loud and they will be fired up and rocking. and so we've got to do our job. and we've got to go out there and play smart and handle the crowd noise. hopefully get off to a fast start and try to calm them down. >> you know, i think it's big because it's our next game. it's kind of our mentality right now. one week at a time, one game at a time. obviously it's a big game because it's a division opponent as well. but, you know, as far as
anything else, i think it's big because it's who we are playing this week. >> the reason why it will be for sole possession of the division, the redskins lost to the jets today. look at this interception by durell revis. who runs it in for the touchdown? ryan fitzpatrick. what a catch by brandon marshall coming up here. 35-yard touchdown. the jets win 34-20. washington is now 2-4 in last place. we have a special edition of "eagles game day kickoff" tomorrow. brian westbrooke will join us tomorrow night. and tonight, patry yoiots and c. we'll talk to andy reid and shawn mccoy on d-west's big honor. how about the temple owls ranked in the top 25 poll for the first time in 36 years.
a long time coming. they are number 22 in the a.p. poll and 24 in the coaches poll. this is huge for the program. to start getting that national recognition for the job that matt role is doing. temple matching the best start in school history. they are 6-0 after beating central florida. and matt rule today says he'll be even happier if they are ranked at the end of the year. >> i think it's nice that there's some national recognition. people are respecting temple and the way our guys play and who we have played. in the long run, we have to make it mean something by winning and being in the top 25 at the end of the year. it's very exciting for our fans and our family and friends. i think within this building, it's just recognition and we are focused on what is next. how about one of the wildest college football endings you'll ever see? blake o'neal bobbles the snap, turns the ball over to allow michigan state to score the
game-winning touchdown. blake received death threats on social media and today michigan's athletic director in a letter urged the community to not condone those thoughtless comments. i agree. sixers, good to see him back today after a sore knee. showing off his range. jaw-jumper here. then how about -- he's going to lay it in, finishes with 14 points, 5 rebounds. a lot of versatility. a couple big dunks in this one. check out rashaun holmes with the slam and the foul. then it's the alley-oop. the sixers lose to the nets, 92-91. they are 2-4 in the preseason. i'm john clark. we're right back after this.
and brittney is back with a final look at the forecast. it's really cold out there. >> it is cold and it will be that way into monday morning. it will be very cold in the bus stop or for the monday morning commute. we'll see temperatures in the 50s. a cold monday night eagles game. then take a look at tuesday, warmer again. so this cold blast is going to be short lived. it will all be over on tuesday. and by wednesday we're back to the 70s. and we stay there for a few days next week. so really not a bad seven-day forecast that just is going to be pretty low tonight with our temperatures. >> the nice midweek warm up there. thank you. that's "nbc 10 news" for now. for brittney, john and i, we'll see you tonight after the game. "nbc nightly news" is next.
