the donation kicks off nrg's new charitable giving initiative called nrg gives. >> $100,000 is a huge amount of money for this organization. and is going to really help so many people, and people that are fighting for their life. so this is a huge, happy, happy, happy today. >> manna was among three nonprofits nominated by nrg employees to receive the donation. now, your nbc 10 first alert weather. starting off with your radar and satellite. good news instead of pinks and purples, snowy and icy conditions of yesterday, temperatures warmed up way too much for us to talk snow or ice. instead just rain out there. along roadsided you may, especially north of philadelphia, run into icy spots. for the most spots the rain has melted the roadways. what we're looking at is very light rain, spotty at best out there. near trenton and stretching along to the shore.
7:50 am
and then we do see in chester county, as well. but the bulk of the rain is still actually sits off to the west of us. this is a big area of rain that's tracking in. in fact, there's this cold front set up so it's going to force that rain in over the next several hours and really even into your afternoon. and then behind it, much colder air moves in. as soon as it starts to move in our temperatures are going to start to slowly decline. as we move into the afternoon they're going to see a pretty big dip, especially overnight. we'll get to that in aye second. currently, if you're getting out this morning trying to squeeze in some last-minute shopping temperatures are great out there. way warmer than they should be. 58 in vorhees, audubon the same, lumberton at 57. i love reading these numbers off, florence at 57. hopewell township 55. we've got a lot of 50s, even some 60s on the map out there, especially in delaware and along shore points. wind forecast for today, winds are up right now, gusting in some areas around 25 miles per
7:51 am
hour or above. what we're looking at here is even into the afternoon, right around 20 miles per hour sustained winds with gusts 25 to 35 miles per hour. windy day. and right now winds coming in from the south but they're going to switch coming in from the west once that front starts to pass through. you're really going to start to see the changes today with rain moving in. hour by hour shows us the showers, the more developed line of rain, and the potential for thunderstorms, starts to move in by 7:30 to 8:30 so we're already seeing it start to edge in and by 8:30 pushing into philadelphia. spread through to the shore by your lunch hour but the rain continues in and out, not constant, but in and out, as we move along here throughout your afternoon. by about 3:00 moving out of philadelphia, i think it could still linger by the shore, three to five o'clock p.m. but really we start to see the showers move through. a little break in clouds by late-day overnight. but those clouds do start to rebuild as we move into your monday. we'll talk more on those temperatures and ups and bounce of them coming up. thanks crystal.

>> with electors in all 50 states expected to certify donald trump as president-elect the cia and fbi have reached the same conclusion at russia and vladimir putin interfered with the election to help mr. trump win. it's the top issue on this morning's edition of nbc's "meet the press." joining us is moderator of "meet the press," chuck todd. >> good morning, rosemary. >> so chuck, mr. trump continues to reject that conclusion. hillary clinton's former campaign manager john podesta, whose e-mails were hacked during all of the e-mails that came out through the summer and fall will join you on the show this morning. what stance do you expect him to take on russia's role in the election? >> he's made it pretty clear they believe russia that everything and obviously mr. podesta himself was hacked, his personal e-mails became a central focus for the last month of the campaign. so, obviously they believe it played a large role. i think the question is, what to do going forward. tomorrow you brought up the electoral college. i think mr. podesta put out an
7:53 am
op-ed in "the washington post" early friday, and i think there was -- there's been some pressure on clinton -- on the clinton campaign by clinton supporters, by people very upset about this election, to try to galvanize support in the electoral college, maybe -- maybe even have the clinton campaign ask all of their electors to vote for an alternative republican in order to stop mr. trump from getting to the white house. so i guess that's my question this morning to him is, is, is, is this, is this, all of this action before tomorrow designed to have an impact on tomorrow, to do something that somehow is get enough electors to pull the emergency brake that is in the constitution when it comes to the electoral college? so i'm going to be as curious as you are on what mr. podesta has to say about that. >> chuck, really quickly. what do you make of president obama's final news conference of the year? he says the u.s. will take action against russia? but at this point is it too little, too late?
7:54 am
>> it's obviously too little, too late. the biggest piece of news that came out of that press conference was president obama saying that he had a direct conversation with putin in september, face-to-face, in china, at a one of those g20 summits, and he told -- president said he told putin to cut it out. a month later the wikileaks podesta e-mails went public. so either putin didn't take the threat seriously or russia is not involved undermining the assessment of 17 intelligence agencies in this country. neither outcome is a good outcome for president obama's position on this issue. that's for sure. >> chuck todd moderator of "meet the press." chuck as always, thanks for your time. the trump transition will be the focus of discussion for former defense secretary robert gates and former clinton campaign manager john podesta as chuck just said they will both be guests on his show, nbc's "meet the press." you can watch it right here at 10:30 this morning on nbc 10. we'll be right back.
