runners yesterday also had to battle the wind, the cold temperatures, especially when they finished running. >> i know, yes, when they stopped. >> all bundled up. >> how long is this wind going to stick around, glenn? >> it's going to be a windy day tomorrow. not quite as severe as what we saw today. we could see gusts at 35 miles per hour tomorrow afternoon. and intergoing to get any warmer either. the temperature isn't going up. it's already down into the 30s in much of the area, 40 in philadelphia, that's the warm spot. we got up to 45 today. it feels like it's in the 20s. 29 in philadelphia, 24 in coatesville, 19 in mt. pocono. and that is one chilly day. the average high this time of the year is 54. we got up to 45. tomorrow we may add a whole degree to that. and then we gradually creep up. we're not talking about anything close to the 72 degrees that we had on saturday. we may not even get to 60 coming up in the next ten days in my
forecast, at least. 30 to 35-mile-an-hour gusts. we saw gusts up to 47 in philadelphia today. 48 in lancaster. and 54 miles an hour in harrisburg. the future feels-like temperatures are based on sustained winds, not the gusts. it's going to be feeling like the 20s throughout the area by 9:00. and as we go toward tomorrow morning, when you get up and get out, go to a bus stop or whatever, yeah, it's going to be really cold. it's cold and it's going to still be windy. and it's windy much of the day tomorrow. that's going to keep those feels-like temperatures down. by tomorrow afternoon, feeling like 41. that's about as good as we're going to get. and then tuesday night and into wednesday morning, it's going to feel pretty cold too. that's a day and a half from now. by wednesday afternoon, things
are easing up a little bit, feeling a little closer to 50. still chilly for this time of year. the future wind gusts by tomorrow morning near 30 miles an hour. perhaps we go into the afternoon, around 35. and then tomorrow evening, that's when the wind really dies down. this is not dying down. these are lake-effect snows. the cold wind over the warm lakes. and it just goes right in these bands. these band are not moving. those areas are getting crushed with snow. that's not what's coming this way. this system here in the middle of the country. that's going to take a while. int it's not that strong. i'm not especially impressed by the threat of rain on thanksgiving day. but it's warm enough for rain in chicago tomorrow, and in cleveland and detroit. it gives you an idea that the air mass as a whole at least is going to be warming up. as we go into thanksgiving day,
the first thing, the rain is still to the west, but there are some showers perhaps later in the morning, midday hours. and then it moves out. so if you're traveling wednesday, some rain showers in pittsburgh. rain showers in washington coming in thanksgiving day. dry in the poconos for a couple of days. and dry in new england. pretty good travel conditions. as far as thanksgiving itself, chance for some showers late morning into perhaps early afternoon. you can see how chilly the temperatures are, lehigh valley and p.a. suburbs don't even get to 50 degrees. then we gradually go up. there are those showers, just a few mainly light showers on thanksgiving day. and not everybody gets it. over the weekend it looks like it's going to be kind of windy both saturday and sunday. and then the best chance of rain starts to come next tuesday and into wednesday.
>> all right, glenn. the cold weather is ideal for making snow. since we don't have the real stuff yet, this is what it looks like at camelback mountain today. the snow machine started making that powder yesterday. it does look pretty out there. what was ugly? the eagles yesterday. up against the seahawks, amy. >> jacqueline, that was such a nice serene photo, can we go back to that rather than talking about what the eagles did yesterday? doug last pederson says nelson aguilar's problems are in his head, next in sports.
hi, wide receiver nelson aguilar had a rough game yesterday in seattle, including a penalty that wiped out an eagles touchdown. the second year player has 27 catches and one touchdown in ten games. he said after the game the problem is in his head. here is what aguilar said yesterday and doug pederson's response today. >> i have to get out of my own head. i try to catch the ball like this instead of with my hand, because i'm thinking too much. that's a selfish thing that i need to stop, i need to give my energy to my teammates in the organization. >> those are definitely concerns i have now that obviously he's come out and said that publicly, you know, my concern is for him as an individual, as a person. i want to make sure that he's, you know, in a good spot. football aside, we all know about that, i want to make sure
that him as a person is -- he's doing good. >> time to think things over this week from the sidelines. eagles activated wide receiver paul turner today. he could get some of aguilar's playing time. he led interceptions this preseason. pederson said that vitai is week to week with a torn ncl. other injury news, run back ryan matthews is day to day with a right knee injury. darren sprowell will likely play monday against the packers. okafur is no longer on restriction. >> i hope to see those two
together. i've been looking forward to playing those two together for a while, for the obvious reasons that we've all talked about, you know, with a minute restriction, it just wasn't smart. >> that will be something to watch. villanova moves up one spot to number two in the nation in the latest associated press policy. wildcats win four games last week to improve to 5-0 in the season. kentucky took over the top spot. the flyers begin a two-game road trip tomorrow against the panthers. it's looking less and less likely we're going to see anthony stolears in that game. that will do it for sports. i'm amy fadool here at csn. >> amy, thanks so much. tonight at 11:00, a warning for the holiday shopping season. criminals are preying on shoppers who just want to get gifts for their loved ones. >> how to protect yourself before you buy, that story

already, it will be. >> amazing. all right, glenn. thanks for the heads up. thanks for watching. >> we'll see you at 11:00. breaking news tonight. school bus horror. several students killed, many injured, when the bus slammed into a house and wrapped around a tree, splitting it in half. we have a late report. manhunt for a killer. police officer ambushed and assassinated, a deadly stretch for law enforcement. four officers shot across three states in just 24 hours. holiday week storm blanketing a big part of the country threatening to make a travel nightmare for billions. beating black friday, skipping the crowds but not the savings. how knows those in the know are already getting big deals right now. and glory days, our monday inspiring america. the 55-year-old father who just made college football history proving it's never too late to live your dream.
