yesterday we saw those winds pick up just as we expected. as a result it was a little chilly through the afternoon. today we'll see more sunshine than yesterday but winds will still be present in the forecast throughout your sunday. the windchills this morning, it's cold as you step out the door. definitely difference from yesterday. then we're looking as we move into your monday. pretty seasonal day. nice conditions for monday. winds even dying down. the problem is, as we move into your midweek, it's very rainy forecast. we're talking tuesday, wednesday, even into your thursday. chances of rain across the board. so right now we're looking at temperatures in the 30s for the most part. 37 in philadelphia, and 34 in pottstown. we're also at 34 in allentown, atlantic city and just a little warmer in wildwood, right along shore point. overall it's a colder start than yesterday and your feels-like conditions are even a little lower. some of us in the low 30s. radar and satellite shows some clouds, but as we move through today there should be more sunshine mixed with these
clouds. it's not going to be a completely sunny day but we will see that mix allowing for the sun to break through. we'll talk more about that. we're also going to look at those chances of rain into your next work week. we'll see you shortly. thanks crystal. >> the holiday weekend is almost over and now millions are hitting the roads, taking to the skies and grabbing a train in order to make it home after thanksgiving. today is considered one of the busiest travel days of the year, if not the busiest travel day of the year. nbc 10's monique braxton is live at philadelphia international airport, checking out the boards. how's it looks, monique? >> it's looking great so far, rosemary. we were surprised when we arrived to see dozens of people lining up to have their bags checked. phl tells us this is the busiest day of the thanksgiving travel season. overall busiest travel day. phl also estimates 85,000 travels will pass through the terminal. when we arrived we saw people
walking, getting in line here, to go through the tsa security check. we've also seen some people who are stopping by the precheck service to make sure that their bags are the right size to take on board the airplane. you know, if you call ahead with the airlines, you can have your bags, and yourself, precertified so that you don't have to stand in what can be sometimes lengthy tsa checkpoints. we've also been watching the board up above, so far no cancellations, everything appears to be on schedule. so here are a few things you may want to know in case you are traveling this time for the first time in the past years. there has been some renovation here at the airport. american flights depart from terminals a-west, a-west, b, c, and f so if you're traveling american airlines you may want to check ahead of time to make sure that you're on board. as a reminder, it's about a 15 minute walk between f and c
terminals. american offers free shuttles between c and f and a and f. we also want to make sure you know there is a free cell phone lot. it's conveniently located about one minute from all baggage claim areas. and that's according to airport officials so you can expect a little bit longer travel time because this is, after all, the busiest travel day of the thanksgiving holiday season. also, airport execs ask that you not wait on the roadways for your party to be picked up. throughout the year, peopleville been known to pull on the side of the road, or actually stop in the middle of the road, while they're on the phone with the person that they're expecting. so the airport officials say don't do that. we've got a free cell phone lot for you. in the next half hour we're going to talk to some folks who are traveling and have that for you. live now from phl, monique braxton. >> thanks, monique. today will also be a very busy on the roads and rails. here's a live look over the schuylkill expressway. sure to be packed later on.

cuban-american community continues to celebrate the death of fidel castro. this is an aerial view of little havana. the cuban leader died yesterday at the age of 90. some see fidel castro's death as the end of a generation of tyranny. others warn that more work is needed to bring about real change in cuba. reaction in the u.s. to castro's packing appears to be bittersweet. thousands are cheering but many wish their loved ones who escaped the regime had lived to see castro's death. the communist leader seized property, silenced the media and jailed dissidents. most cuban-american citizens and politicians are still angry. >> he destroyed families. he destroyed a country, he destroyed practically a culture. >> all for his cause. the sadness and tragedy of his
death, that is the legacy of fidel castro. >> cuban americans are hoping for democratic change when castro's 85-year-old brother raul, the president of cuba, is no longer in power. president obama who moved to normalize relations with cuba said of fidel castro, history will record and judge the enormous impact of this singular figure on the people and world around him. president-elect donald trump said, fidel castro's legacy is one of firing squads, theft, unimaginable suffering, pofrty, and the denial of fundamental human rights. cuban-americans in our region remain hopeful that castro's death will mean a shift in policy and politics on the small island nation. reporter christian casarez from our spanish seeking sister station telemundo spoke with someone who said castro changed her family forever. >> what castro has done to my family is separated my family. >> reporter: she says the reason she is in the united states is
because of fidel castro. after her parents fled a communist cuba. >> my parents couldn't freely go back and forth to cuba. if my grandmother was dying my father couldn't go see her. you know, they separated a family. and brought a lot of pain. >> reporter: pain she says was her fuel when she came to this new country from her hometown of colon. now making history along the way as the first hispanic woman to serve in public office in mercer county. but her smile isn't the only one. >> it was something almost surreal. i've waited my whole entire life for this man to pass. >> reporter: inside this cuban restaurant a feeling of hope and a new beginning reflected on their smiles as the business is serving one free drink in light of what's to come. >> it's kind of a little anti-climactic because he is out of power essentially for ten years, but you know something that cuban-american community has been waiting for close to 60 years.
>> reporter: a change this local leader says was surreal as she explained what was happening to her children. >> i said i'm happy. i'm happy. and i don't want to be happy about somebody being dead. but i actually feel happy that he's gone. all the horrible things he's done to so many people. >> she says she hopes to one day be able to visit cuba but knows that her life would be completely different, maybe even behind bars if she would have stayed in that country. mainly because she considers herself very opinionated. in south jersey, christian casarez, nbc 10 news. >> you can see more local reaction toll fidel castro's death plus a more complete picture of the polarizing legacy he leaves behind right now on the nbc 10 app. 5:39 on this sunday. name change coming up why google had to do some quick editing this weekend for its maps showing trump tower. also, shopping small for a big cause. we'll take you to the local stores cashing in on annual holiday tradition.
now your nbc 10 first alert weather. welcome back. starting out with a look outside philadelphia here. you can see the flag still whipping in the wind. the winds aren't terribly strong this morning. yesterday the gusts around 25 to 30 miles per hour which is exactly what we were expecting. we're expecting about the same today. gusts around 30 miles per hour. so they'll start to strengthen again as we move into your afternoon, which will also make it feel a little chillier than it truly is outside. current winds right now, most of us around 5 to 10 miles per hour, although starting to pick up a bit in coatesville at 16 miles per hour. winds mostly coming in from the west/northwest. so that's going to continue throughout today's forecast. we see that same direction of wind push and same strength of winds as we move into the afternoon. so this is the forecast by late today, gusts around 30 miles per hour. officially at the airport in philadelphia that's what we saw gusts up to yesterday 30 miles per hour. winds sustaining around 10 to 15 miles per hour. some of us closer to 15 to 20
miles per hour. overall you're going to notice those winds. it's going to make it feel cooler than it truly is. temperatures are going to be on the low side. a little below average. friday we were at 53. we stayed in the low 50s slightly below average on saturday and that's the same for today. look at the warm-up ahead, though. that's when chances of rain move in. we'll talk more about those chances of showers coming up. >> thanks for that krystal. 5:43 on this sunday. breaking news, the new jersey turnpike is shut down southbound in the inner lanes, that's the cars-only side. the shutdown is happening just north of exit 7 in bordentown township. right now we're working to get some more information on this closure. all we know from the new jersey turnpike authority is that there's been a crash. we'll stay on top of this and bring you more information as soon as we have it right here on air and on the nbc 10 app. coming up, online bargain shopping will reach a frenzy tomorrow. three things you should do to make your cyber monday search successful. that's still ahead.
a scam. that's what president-elect donald trump is calling an election recount effort now backed by hillary clinton's campaign. yesterday clinton's camp said it plans to support a recount in wisconsin. former green party presidential nominee jill stein is organizing the effort. the recount in wisconsin could start this week. stein also wants recounts in pennsylvania, and michigan. political observers say those three battleground states helped to decide the election. president-elect trump won 290 electoral votes compared to clinton's 232. it's the electoral vote that wins the white house. clinton leads the national popular vote by about 2 million votes. in a statement the president-elect also called the recount effort ridiculous. mr. trump said, quote, the people have spoken and the election is over. this is a scam by the green party for an election that has already been conceded. meantime president-elect trump's transition headquarter building in new york has its old name back.
yesterday somebody renamed trump tower dump tower on google maps. the change soon made the rounds on social media. google caught on and changed the name back. according to the company users can help update google maps can sometimes make errors. a little bit later on this morning, on "meet the press," chuck todd will be sitting down with trump campaign manager kellyanne conway about whether the president-elect can keep his promises. he'll also be discussing the death of fidel castro and what it means for diplomatic relations with the u.s. that's at 10:30 right here on nbc 10. tomorrow's cyber monday is expected to be the busiest online shopping day of all time generating more than $3 billion in sales. if you're planning to cash in experts say make a list before you hop online. if you weren't already planning to buy an item in the first place, then a sale may not be saving you any money. nowhere to look. cyber monday usually has great deals on apparel, and keep in mind to shop safe. use sites like paypal to check out instead of checking out as a
guest on a website. the experts consider sites like paypal to be more secure. small businesses are also looking forward to a profitable holiday season after they say they had a pretty successful start with small business saturday. sidewalks were packed in delaware county as folks stopped in the mom and pop shops to check out the sales. at kathy's book store it's love of stories that created a niche. every book used to belong to somebody else in the community. but management tells us being sandwiched between big box stores can sometimes make it difficult to stand out. >> we're small business every day but it's special, especially important around the holidays and on these big shopping weekends when you're planning to spend a lot of money to think about where you're putting it. >> we also saw lots of customers at stores in ardmore and manayunk supporting the small businesses vital to the economy. this weekend isn't just about small business saturday. it's a busy shopping weekend no matter where you go. the tarrytown mall was plenty
packed. a spokesperson said great deals are still out there because many retailers have extended their black friday promotions through today. >> my daughter had some spending money, wanted to get some good deals on sales. i got a few things, as well. many malls across our area have extended hours to help you check a few more items off your holiday shopping list. now your nbc 10 first alert weather. all right we start off by taking a look at temperatures this morning. not a bad start, certainly cooler than it was yesterday. most of us in our philadelphia neighborhoods are above freezing. temperatures in the 30s. 39 right now in kensington, rittenhouse, 36 for andorra. you also see the mid to upper 30s, areas like fox chase, parkwood at 387 degrees. so we're starting out colder than yesterday. not, though, terribly bone chilling cold although winds make it feel a bit cooler than it truly is.
