"nbc 10's" matt delucia is live for us this morning in our digital operations center. matt, protesters are making their case but they're not expected to get their way. explain this. >> right. katy and tracy, the results of this election are not likely to change. there's already a group of protesters in harrisburg ready to greet pennsylvania's electors in an attempt to get them not to vote for donald trump. today is the day they'll meet to cast their vote for president and vice president and their states also include new jersey and delaware. donald trump, he needs 270 votes to win. the nbc news count has him quite a bit ahead bover democratic challenger hillary clinton.
more than 36 electors would have to vote for someone else. because these folks are aligned with their political party, getting that many people to go another way would be a very big challenge. so what happens if there are enough defectors and donald trump does not get 270 electoral votes? well, then the fate of the presidency will fall into the hands of the u.s. house of representatives which is republican controlled. now "nbc 10" will be in harrisburg today as the state takes part in the electoral college vote. live in the digital operations center, matt delucia, "nbc 10 news." u.s. senators are calling for a special bipartisan panel to investigate cyber attacks. the focus will be on russia's alleged efforts to influence the presidential elections. >> going to find out what the russians are doing to our political system. what other foreign governments might do to our political system. >> we need to get to the bottom of this. we need to find out exactly what was done. >> intelligence sources have told nbc news u.s. officials
believe russian president vladimir putin was personally involved to trying to influence the u.s. elections. the cia concluded the hacking was done to help mr. trump. more than half of americans are concerned that russia interfered in the election. that's according to a national nbc news wall street journal poll. 55% say they are concerned that hackers working in connection with the foreign government influence the election. today is the deadline to sign up for health care for next year. the deadline was extended after a record number of people signed up for oklahobamacare on thursd. president-elect donald trump and the republican congress have vowed to repeal and replace the 2010 health care law. well, welcome to the monday before christmas, which is traditionally the busiest shipping day of year for packages. today is expected to be the busiest mailing day of the year. the postal service says it figures to be busier than last. this post office in north philadelphia we found people trying to get a jump on the

suburbs, new jersey the same. a little lower than that in lehigh valley. 23 degrees in delaware at 28 degrees for that temperature. across the map we are below freezing and wind chills, feels like conditions are even lower. so we'll get into the afternoon, not a big warmup. 34 degrees in philadelphia for the warmup. 32 only in the suburbs meaning we get to freezing and tap out there. don't even get to freezing for parts of the lehigh valley. 34 degrees in delaware. some clouds mixing in with sunshine for the forecast. won't be an entirely sunny day but no rainy, dark gray day that we saw yesterday. the rain is off the shore. the clouds are already starting to close in on that and then that's when we see some of the most clear air. high clouds are going to linger. overall, we will see more sunshine than we've seen in the last couple of days. today's forecast, 28 at 9:00 a.m., 31 by 9:00. we only get to the mid 30s in the afternoon. if you do need to run out, maybe you have work, but on your lunch
break still going to be quite cold out there later today. 30 degrees in the suburbs. in the lehigh valley possibly some parts in the upper 20s by 1:00 p.m. should make it to around 30 degrees for the high later today. in delaware, 30 at 9:00 a.m. mid 30s and in new jersey we should be close to the mid 30s as well later. as we go to the jersey shore points, mid to upper 30s depending on where you are. a little bit warmer than if you are farther inland. know that there is no rain on that forecast for today or the next several days. we'll break down your neighborhood forecast throughout your work week and most importantly for the holiday forecasts all coming up in just a bit. krystal, thanks for that. 20 minutes before 7:00 a.m. about the time the cars start to get out there. >> let's find out with "nbc 10" first alert traffic reporter, jessica boyington. >> starting off on the schuylkill and cameras around the boulevard.

beautiful shot there. the schuylkill is not choppy like it was late last week. first alert meteorologist krystal klei is here with a look at the winds that have died down. the temps though, they're not doing anything in our favor. >> no. if we could hold on to yesterday's temps and clear things out like we're seeing today, it would be a perfect monday. we have to deal with the cold. back to reality. more typical. yesterday we had 60s on the board in delaware. now 28 in marshall ton and wilmington. odessa and 29 degrees. we drop farther south and we see it on the lincoln and allen dale. so what we're seeing are temperatures more typical considering it's middle of december that we're talking here. then we go over to our radar and satellite. the rain that we saw, that's moved on out. we saw clouds this morning, but what we're seeing is already the clouds are starting to thin out in trenton berks county. that will spread this morning.
certainly more sunshine than we've seen throughout the weekend. afternoon temperatures. as we move through the day, a few degrees here and there. that's about it. same for new jersey, the shore and delaware. 31 in trenton. voorhees at 33. ocean city at 34. that's the same for tomorrow. atlantic city up to 35 degrees. that's about the best we can do is the mid to maybe some spot locations on shore points upper 30s. that's all. certainly no 50s or 60s like we saw yesterday. hour by hour, there's the clouds starting to move out. then we're left with what i think will be some thin, high level clouds. overall more sunshine as we move into the afternoon. clear to mostly clearing as we go overnight as well and on into tuesday, much of the same.
we're going to look at a mostly clear forecast tuesday. pretty mild the next several days. really through wednesday. as we fast forward through to the weekend, christmas eve, saturday 6:00, 44 degrees in philadelphia. by 10:00, 42. santa's making his way into our area. suburbs at 40 degrees. scattered clouds. we're going to see moisture movement. in fact, it looks like christmas day we may see some showers. not an entire washout but some rain is possible. christmas eve dryer side, south jersey 41. delaware at 43 degrees by 6:00. let's talk about the ten day forecast extending through the next ten days. 41 degrees on your tuesday. wednesday 46. even mild conditions talking about mid upper 40s right through friday and even saturday. we do have a chance of rain thursday. otherwise, your holiday weekend 48 saturday, 50 on sunday for christmas day. 6:48. let's get you to work and take a
look at 95 on this monday morning. >> first alert traffic reporter jessica boyington. >> dealing with construction projects on 95. they have cleared but now we're in the beginnings of what is normally our morning rush. we are seeing some delays through the work zones with the construction cleared. around cottman avenue is where we're looking right now. southbound side. traffic moving towards center city you can see. definitely a slowdown. 23 minutes from woodhaven road to the vine haven expressway. adding already ten minutes to your morning commute. down into the 30s as well. slowdowns there checking november with mass transit. two cars short for elwin train 9340. you might see overcrowding. if trains become overcrowded they'll start bypassing different platforms and expressing trains to their final destination. keep you updated there. right now 11 minutes away from the northbound train 216. nothing too major there. we'll end with the blue route drive times here. basically the same, 16 minutes.
