snow this week, but sheena, not enough to plow, right? >> you know, not really, but we will see some pretty good snow showers, i think, for a very short period of time. keep in mind the wind is going to help to also bring this in, so along with that wind in place, they are not going to be long lasting, but will have some tomorrow for part of the area. otherwise we started the week with an arctic blast, still cold and windy outside right now and the first snowflakes will be tomorrow and we're saying snowflakes, because it's not a snowstorm, but we will have some snow showers moving through, mostly in the afternoon. i'll show you the timing in a second. otherwise wednesday will be colder than today and windy again, so quite a difference from yesterday. take a look at yesterday, sunday we hit 65 degrees, record high yesterday. today we've gotten into the mid 30s. that's a good 30-degree drop in temperatures. big shock to the system tomorrow, only around low 40s, so not as cold as today, but look at wednesday, down into the upper 20s for a high temperature.
right now we're at 18 degrees in the poconos. actual temperature 27 in pottstown, 33 in philadelphia, 33 millville, 35 in dover. 33 in atlantic city. remember it's still windy outside, so when you walk outside and the wind hits you, this is what it actually feels like. in the poconos, feels like 4 degrees. feels like the mid 20s in philadelphia and northeast philly. safe to say pretty much everybody feels about ten degrees colder than the actual temperature at the moment. tonight the winds start to die down and we are nice and dry on satellite and radar, just some clouds around. there you see snow showers off to our west, not much, but this system is going to organize a bit more by tomorrow and then we'll see some snow showers moving in. here's what it looks like on future weather. tonight we stay cold and dry, temperatures dropping for most of the area into about the mid 20s. dry for the morning, but this is 1:00 p.m. tomorrow. here you see snow showers north and west of philadelphia. the poconos will be very happy about this considering all the
rain we had this weekend. rest of the area not too bad, just dry, not as cold, but look what happens in the afternoon, another wave of snow showers moving in with temperatures above freezing so we don't expect much of this to be sticking, but then some more snow showers could be moving in mostly areas north and west where the temperatures could be dropping below freezing. again as you see, not a snowstorm, just snow showers. then we go into wednesday and we are colder and windy. temperatures only in the upper 20s. so here's a look at future snowfall, this shows how little we expect. areas north and west could be seeing the most, which could be less than an inch, then we could see some of the quick snow showers through the rest of the area. so nothing that's going to be a big deal, but something to keep a watch out for tomorrow afternoon. low temperatures tonight, 14 allentown and even in the poconos in the lower teens, pottstown 21 degrees, philadelphia 24 overnight, 23 for millville, and temperatures tomorrow afternoon still on the cold side, but not as cold.
then we have the afternoon snow showers moving in, highs anywhere from 39 to 43 degrees. big drop as we go into wednesday, though, from the low 40s tomorrow, upper 20s wednesday and dry, upper 30s into thursday. we do start to warm up more for the weekend, so that's going to be our next rain chance in the forecast, but either way the poconos will be able to make snow all week. >> thanks, sheena. a delaware district says their schools need an upgrade, but need the public's help to pay for it. how should it could end up costing taxpayers. plus, a senior living community welcomes a new resident. how this furry friend will help them in more ways than one.

what we do with our tracing efforts is follow the life of the gun and how it wound up at a particular crime scene or how it ends up in the hands of a criminal. >> a source close to the investigation into last week's shooting tells us so far it does not appear the stolen gun was used in any other crime, but investigators are still working on tracing the history of that weapon. for the investigators, harry hairston, nbc 10 news. and now to your first alert weather. colder temperatures across the region and the wind made it feel even colder. but no jackets required for these dogs in wilmington's rockford park. they let their own winter coats do the trick. >> let's talk to sheena parveen. sheena, with the temperature drop, we'll need our jackets, right? >> yes, we'll need our jackets through tonight because it is going to be much colder. the wind is going to diminish,
so it is going to be dropping into the teens north and west. look at the wind, though, still up near ten to 15 miles an hour for part of the area, so this is what it's making the temperatures feel like. actual temperature is about ten degrees warmer than where we're at right now, but the feels like, 18 in allentown and pottstown, feels like four degrees in the poconos, where they are currently making snow again. 24 is what it feels like in philadelphia, 27 in dover, feels like 24 in mount holly. we are watching snow showers to our west around chicago. this weather system will get more organized tomorrow, then it will bring us some snow showers, but it's not going to be a snowstorm, we just expect snow showers to move through mostly in the afternoon. so take a look at future weather. tonight we stay dry, the morning commute tomorrow stays dry, then you see the snow showers getting closer tomorrow afternoon and evening, so we finally have our first snowflakes in the forecast aside from that, much colder again as we go into wednesday.

tomorrow won't be as cold, but then we have snow showers moving through. temperatures above freezing at the time they move through, not allowing much to stick, but later in the evening we could be seeing some of that sticking. right now we are dry, the snow we're watching is back to the west, not very organized, but tomorrow more organized and that's when some snow showers will blow in. we're not looking at a snowstorm, just looking at passing snow showers. here's future weather, tonight, though, we stay dry, temperatures dropping into the mid 20s for most of the area, teens north and west by tomorrow morning, though, then we'll see those snow showers. this is closer to lunchtime tomorrow, so early afternoon. our first chance could be up near the poconos and the lehigh valley, snow showers falling there, poconos are going to love that with the real snow moving in. by 6:00 p.m. you see more scattered snow showers through delaware, but notice temperatures are still above freezing by that time. then we'll see possibly more move through by 8:00, closer
into new jersey, so at this time some temperatures north and west could be dropping at or below freezing, which is when we could see that sticking, but we don't expect much. then we go into wednesday and get colder with temperatures only reaching the upper 20s. here's how little snow we expect with those snow showers. the poconos will be expecting the most, maybe close to an inch, elsewhere we are looking at not much at all, so that's why we don't expect this to be a big deal, just be careful as you're driving home in the evening if you run into any of those snow showers. tonight temperatures dropping to the teens north and west, 14 for the low in allentown, 21 pottstown, mid 20s philadelphia. new jersey suburbs into the teens, delaware in the mid 20s tonight. tomorrow afternoon not as cold, temperatures upper 30s to low to mid 40s, but we'll see the afternoon snow showers moving through. again, the morning commute looks fine, but amp and evening is when we expect the snow showers. could lower visibility for a time, but also going to be windy, so they are not going to be lasting long.
then we go into wednesday, the next arctic blast, highs in the upper 20s, upper 30s thursday. we keep on getting higher with our temperatures as we go into the weekend. warmer, that brings us our next chance of rain friday night and into saturday before we get colder again. >> sheena, thanks. let's go to new york now, lester holt joins us with a look what's coming up on "nbc nightly news." >> good evening, lester. >> hi, keith and denise. tonight sean penn defends his clan destined meeting with el chapo guzman. pete williams examines a supreme court case that could serve up a big blow to unions that represent millions of public employees, and yet another new set of mammogram recommendations have been issued. what are women to do? we'll have some answers right here tonight on "nbc nightly news." keith and denise, back to you. >> lester, thank you, see you at 6:30. it is a debate that's divided the medical community, and when is the right age for
women to start getting mammograms? tonight, the government's new guidelines have doctors and patients asking questions and we'll break down the information next on nbc 10 news at 5:00. coming up at 6:00, a local veteran was injured 60 years ago in battle. the military honor he just received over the weekend.
the figures are scary, about one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in this country. >> doctors have been divided on the appropriate age to start screening for the disease. today new recommendations were released on mammograms, and as erica edwards reports, they are causing quite a controversy. >> reporter: when it comes to screening women at average risk for breast cancer, earlier may not be better according to the latest guidelines. the u.s. preventive services task force finds mammograms offer the greatest benefit for women starting at age 50, with screening every other year. >> we found that the best benefits, the best benefits come from starting between the ages of 50 to 74. >> reporter: the task force says mammograms may be beneficial for women in their 40s, but that decision should be made by a woman and her doctor after discussing her personal risks. cost should not be a barrier, because federal law mandates health insurers cover mammograms for women starting at age 40.
the issue is that women in their early 40s are at lower risk for the disease, but at higher risk for false positives for mammograms. >> i think it's important to realize, though, that a lot of the false positives in the early 40s result because that is a woman's first mammogram and we have no prior mammograms for comparison. >> reporter: many breast imaging experts insist the potential for life saving screening outweighs the risk of false positives. >> i became a position to save lives, not allow them to be lost. >> reporter: breast cancer is diagnosed in about 200,000 women in the u.s. every year, killing 40,000. erica edwards, staigs nbc news. >> do not apply to those with a strong family history of factors, those women need to be screened earlier than others. nbc 10 news at 6:00 is next, here's jim rosenfield and jacqueline london. >> coming up next at 6:00, we're following breaking news. >> tonight we have team coverage
