4:16 pm
we've got an 11 mile-per-hour wind. five degrees warmer than it was at this time yesterday. so it was really cold yesterday. 50 degrees in westchester. we had some snow flurries reported. 48 now pocono. we had temperatures down in the 20s this morning so some places going up a good 30 degrees. and we're going to see even bigger warm up tomorrow. temperatures in the 20s this morning. quakertown, pottstown, 25. doylestown 26. reading 28. trenton is 27. that was the only record that was set. 35 degrees in philadelphia. we have pretty much of a hard freeze just about every where and so the growing season officially ended according to the national weather service. we do have dry conditions across the entire region, a few clouds up towards canada. look how dry the eastern half of the country is.
4:17 pm
so, we're in for a fairly dry if not completely dry week this week. now, here's the future cast for the temperatures. with a southwest wind it's not going to allow the temperature to drop a whole lot tonight especially in the city. so we may get a big difference between the city and the suburbs and the computer model not picking that up as well as it probably would be. so watch what happens here as we go through the morning. by 6:00, 7:00 a.m. i would expect it to be in the mid-40s in philadelphia. might be some 30s to the north and west. we could easily see a ten degree temperature difference between the city and some of the colder suburbs but it's going to warm up quickly tomorrow. wednesday 70 degrees. there's that 70 in philadelphia. 54 degrees right now with bright sunshine. so the atmosphere has to warm up tremendously in order to get to
4:18 pm
70 degrees with sunshine tomorrow. and then that's going to mean it's not going to cool off that much tomorrow night and then we warm right back up into the 70s on wednesday. we're starting in the 50s and there are those 70s. now we're talking mid-70s on wednesday. for the eagles tonight, we're close to the 70s. that's for sure. it's unseasonably cold but there's at least not a whole lot of wind. temperature 47 just before the game. kick-off at 44 degrees and then holding pretty steady. this isn't going to keep us steady for the rest of the week. back to the west 68 degrees right now in detroit. 70 in chicago. 78 in st. louis. and 80 in wichita, kansas. there's some warm air and some of that is what is headed our way as we go through the next couple of days, straight west flow brings the warmer air in, and it's also continuing to feed the dry air in here. so we're going to stay dry for
4:19 pm
much if not all of this week. so for tonight, we expect mostly clear skies. going to be another chilly one but not as cold as it was this morning. 35 in philadelphia, mid-20s in some of the northern western suburbs this morning. that's not quite as cold. still need a jacket in the morning. not going to need a jacket by afternoon probably after what we saw today. that 70 degrees tomorrow will feel mighty warm much warmer during the afternoon and south-southwest winds at 10 to 15 miles per hour. wednesday even warmer. thursday up to 77 degrees. so now we're talking about 10 degrees above average. but then we got 20 degree temperature drop for friday. and then we start warming up a little bit over the weekend and by sunday we could be back up to 70. the archdiocese of philadelphia is closing a church in manayunk.

4:34 pm
manslaughter and not guilty of third degree manslaughter charges. >> joining me now for analysis is our legal expert. thanks for being here this afternoon. let's start off with what does it say about the prosecution's case that jurors opted for the lesser charge. >> it says the jury did not believe the prosecution's theory. he was charged with third degree murder. that was the original lead charge in this case. at this point after being acquitted of third degree murder and being found guilty of the misdeamnor and involuntary manslaughter the lead charge is aggravated assault. in order for the prosecution to prove its case the third degree murder charge needs malice. it means the defendant in this case was aware and knew that this could cause death and didn't care because he wanted to cut corners. the involuntary manslaughter, on the other hand, says he did know. he was an idiot.
4:35 pm
he was doing this job but didn't know it was going to cause death but grossly negligent. >> griffith campbell had a chance to plea out before trial started. but he turned it down. >> he had an opportunity to plead guilty to the charges he ended up with. the prosecution planned to drop the third degree murder charges for a plea bargain. so is that loss for the prosecution because after going through a complete trial, jury trial and spending all the money that it takes to prosecute a trial he ended up with the same exact charges. so this is kind of a win for the defense because he doesn't have the third degree murder charges only the involuntary manslaughter which is misdeamnor awrong the felony catastrophe and aggravated assault charges. >> the possible sentences are a lot less in this case now. >> yes. he's definitely looking at significant decrease in time and this is able for him when he goes to sentencing to tell a
4:36 pm
judge, the jury did not believe i murdered anyone. this is involuntary. my behavior was he negligent. >> thanks again for weighing in here. we'll have more reaction on this story coming up tonight at 5:00. we appreciate it. losing weight and oprah winfrey. oprah's new business venture next. >> drinking alcohol while sfleg some new health guidelines are out. >> plus gets rid of jellyfish down at the jersey shore. what people did that hopefully will eliminate them next summer.

me too. and that's why i'm running. i'm christine donohue. it's time to bring integrity back to the supreme court. this is a hotly debated topic. is alcohol ever safe during pregnancy even in small amounts. >> new research finds the answer is no.
4:40 pm
based on new study doctors say any amount of alcohol during pregnancy can lead to brain, heart and kidney problems in children even learning disabilities and memory problems opinion drinking during the first trimester boosts the risks by a whopping 65%. all right guys you can skip the supplements that's the word from fox chase cancer center when it comes to men with prostate cancer. some men take pills that have anti-cancer or proven healing effects. but supplements do not lower the risk of the cancer, risk of it spreading or dying from that disease. they do nothing to change the progression of the cancer at all. scientists say the supplements are not unsafe just unnecessary. she's famously talked openly about her struggles to lose weight and now oprah winfrey is buying into weight watchers in a big way.

louis. and 80 in wichita. you get a couple of days of west wind three days of a west wind and it will warm up a whole lot. cold and dry across the east and we're just plain dry across the rest of the eastern half of the country. again, temperatures are going to be going down into the 40s tonight but with a southwest wind the atmosphere trying to warm up pretty quickly and when that happens the downtown areas do not cool off very much and suburbs do. so we can be down in the 30s northern and western areas while it probably won't be down into the 30s for philadelphia. that's why we're going to put this forecast for the eagles tonight. temperatures leveling off between the beginning of the game and tend of the game but real cool down will come in the time just before the game starts after dark and the temperature will really start to plunge there. for the rest of the night tonight mostly clear.
