5:21 pm
direction in time for thursday. we'll get more of a south wind, milder thanksgiving in the forecast, and that mild air is going to stretch up into maine, so no matter where you're going across the northeast and midatlantic states, it is going to be a milder thanksgiving. now with thanksgiving travel under way, before we get to thursday if you're mostly traveling on wednesday, looks pretty good from the carolinas all the way up into new england. temperatures seasonal for this time of year, so on the chilly side, but we do expect nice dry conditions. if you are headed down south towards florida, temperatures here in the 70s, maybe the low 80s in some spots. will be cloudy with spotty showers, so could be a couple travel delays in that direction, even if you're heading from texas up into parts of kansas city, across the central plains, could be seeing showers there, too. off on the west coast we have snow in the rockies expected for wednesday, areas of rain and fog, so, of course, check your flights if you're heading in that direction. also locally we'll be nice and warmer by thursday. low temperatures tonight, though, it's going to be cold.

style? going to town, they are loading up because it's right in front of them. >> reporter: here's another trick, the kind of wine you serve makes a difference. we only put white wine on their table, but for the buffet group only red. >> when you pour white wine, you often pour more because there's no contrast with the glass, so you pour with a heavier hand. if you want to cut back this thanksgiving, go for the red over the white. >> reporter: we also gave them different colored plates. the group in here eating on white. the buffet group using blue. >> blue is traditional aan unappetizing color. when we eat on blue plates or dine in a blue room, research has shown we eat less. >> reporter: when everyone is finally finished and we add up the totals, we bring both groups together for the big reveal. we've been doing a secret food test on you behind your backs. >> what kind of deception is this! >> reporter: we broke this down by calorie, the buffet group over here, you had 9,218

weather with meteorologist sheena parveen. >> well, it is going to get cold tonight. aside from the flurries areas north and west, we have that around today. those come to an end, but allentown, king of prussia, the poconos would have noticed snow flurries around. they blew in from areas north and west with a strong wind and now tonight that wind is going to start to lighten up and temperatures will be dropping. coldest night so far this season, widespread 20-degree temperatures. as we go into the end of the week just in time for thanksgiving, it will start to warm up a bit, believe it or not. right now, though, it is getting cold outside, 28 degrees in mount pocono at the moment, 33 in allentown, 35 in reading and pottstown, 41 right now philadelphia, but mid 30s in trenton and bensalem. 37 degrees in wilmington and millville, 38 degrees in dover. through tonight, though, we will be cold. tomorrow we'll also be cold in the afternoon. 49 degrees for the high temperature.
5:49 pm
today we got to 43. by wednesday, low 50s, but look at the jump from wednesday to thursday, big ten-degree jump in time for thanksgiving, 62 degrees for the high on thursday, the average high is 53, so the cold air will be here most of the week, then milder by thursday and friday. if you wanted the warmup for thanksgiving, it is on the way. right now nice and dry, flurries coming to an end over the great lakes, same area we're seeing the snow continuing, but this is from earlier today. we have the snow flurries around with the strong northwest wind. that's going to start to die down tonight. temperatures will be dropping, so tomorrow morning around the time you walk outside, 8:00, 9:00, we should be around 30 degrees for most of the area, but we're going to stay dry because of the area of high pressure. so for tuesday and wednesday, this high moves over the area, once it moves offshore off the new england coast by thursday and friday, that's when our wind direction is going to switch and that is when we start to warm up even more. so thursday and friday we will be in the 60s. if you are traveling for

5:56 pm
posts on social media included, a woozy case keenum picked up by linemen and stays in the game, nobody cares. keenum is still in the game? how? why do we have a concussion protocol then? following the game the team confirmed keenum was suffering from a concussion. today in a written statement the nfl announced they are reviewing the incident and prior to this week's game, we will re-enforce with all involved the need to ensure these injuries are properly identified and addressed in a manner consistent with our protocols. experts say if there is a question, the player should be benched immediately. >> it's always best to err on the side of safety and to take players out of the game if you think there's a concussion. >> reporter: because doctors say staying in could take them out of a much bigger game off the field. jay gray, nbc 10 news. coming up next on nbc 10 news at 6:00. >> we are staying on top of breaking news, two men murdered inside a home. we are live on that scene with
