region, not just everybody, because a small area is going to get nasty weather. we have a northwest wind developing at the jersey shore, that makes temperatures fairly uniform. it's 44 in dennis township inland, also 4 in avalon, ocean city and at ventner right on the beaches with the land breeze. these temperatures are right on time, just when we said the snow was going to start, and we got it in berks county, lehigh valley, the poconos, the rest of the area has rain and that has moved out. a couple of sprinkles left in allentown and a couple over the mountains trying to comeo acros. tomorrow the temperature is going to vary, the winds gusting to 40 or more, and the temperature struggling to get to

2:00. a little bit above average for this time of year. not a whole lot of wind, certainly not compared to tomorrow. and a l a little bit milder on sunday, we don't expect any kind of precipitation. so when the eagles are playing on sunday afternoon, the weather is not too much of a factor. we have a mix of sun and clouds temperature a little bit above average, not a whole lot of wind, so can't really ask for much more than that, we have the arctic air coming in tomorrow. that's a one-day thing, because temperatures are going to ease up over the weekend, as you just saw, as we go into next week, it warms up with a storm and we get rain. then this larger area of arctic starts coming in later this week and that settles over much of
the area by next weekend, and the next question is moisture down to the south, is it going to have enough push to get up here and have some significant snow or is it going to track and just leave us with the arctic air itself that's going to be the big question for next week. you can see the temperatures gradually going up through the weekend. then we have this wet weather on monday, wet and chilly, wet and not so chilly on tuesday, starting on thursday, it gets cold and as we head toward the weekend, the chances of snow go up and up. boathouse row getting ready to celebrate hanukkah. beginning at 6:00, that sixth house will light up. boathouse row is now shut down for the occasion. mayor kenney and members of the community are hosting the event.

that's some cold air moving in. and most of the area should be dry, there could be a few snow flurries in parts of the lehigh valley and poconos, but the rest of the area, like i said, it starts off sunny and ends up pretty dry. we start off the weekend with the arctic air moving in, but it doesn't stay that way all weekend, we'll talk about that warmup and when we get the next rain in just a few minutes. new jersey governor chris christie has ordered all state buildings to fly half staff on saturday in remembrance of a new jersey state trooper. he died of complications of a brain tumor, he was a member of the state police since 1994 and suffered from a long term illness while in the line of duty. 135 police officers across the country have died in the
