go down, generally in the 30s over a good portion of the area, and even in delaware, we have got a couple of spots into the 30s. greenville and talliville at 38, marshallton and newark, 37 degrees. farther to the south, we're mostly in the 40s. with that west wind, that's increasing, your temperatures are going to be lower tomorrow and the wind is going to be higher. this is what the radar looked like right at 6:00 a.m., right when it was supposed to start. there's the snow from philadelphia northward. there's the rain, on the heavy side south of the area, not a big storm, and we had several hours of precipitation and then it has pretty much ended. and we have a couple of snow flurries in central pennsylvania. the big issue is going to be how the wind is going to make it feel and tonight we're going to
be seeing these feels like temperatures down into the 20s across the entire area. the feels like temperatures or wind chills do not take into account wind gusts, this is for sustained winds. so obviously it's going to feel a little colder than that at times between those sustained winds. there's tomorrow afternoon feeling like the 20s. there's some teens, as we go through friday night and into saturday morning, as we start the weekend, saturday morning, upper teens to the low 20s. so it's cold. saturday morning, but we gradually get warmer. so saturday afternoon's a little warmer than friday afternoon. especially considering less wind. sunday afternoon is warmer than saturday afternoon. we don't see any precipitation to speak of other than perhaps some snow flurries in the lehigh valley tomorrow when those strong winds come over the
lakes. for new year's eve, pretty mild conditions, temperatures at or a few degrees average and that's pretty good too. 44 degrees at 6:00 for the first round of fireworks. for the mummers, pretty good conditions, 44 at 6:00 p.m., 48 at 12:00 a.m. looks like it's going to be dry and a pretty nice day for the eagles too. temperatures well into the 40s, the average high is 41 this time of the year, and not a whole lot of wind and i'll be back with the 10-day forecast a little bit later. i'm danny pommells, csn, next in sports, the eagles are looking to close out the season with back to back winds. and the flyers put in some extra work after last night's loss, we got the details next. about bassett.
hey, hey, danny pommells with you once again. the eagles just three days away from their season finale. the birds indoors again today due to the weather. the eagles haven't beaten the cowboys at the link since 2011. hard to believe, and although it appears they won't see most of the cowboys starters, it's important to end the season in the positive. >> we want to compete for every play and every opportunity. >> if we can just get a win, put a dent in their record before they hit playoffs.
i don't know if they're going to play their starters, nobody knows. but i want to go full tilt. >> collins hired earlier this month after matt reuhl left for baylor. the sixers visit the utah jazz, the coverage starts at 7:00 p.m. the big man is expected to play tomorrow in denver, that means more minutes for joel. to the flyers now, they are on a westward movement. they're back on the ice when they visit the san jose sharks. a game that the flyers led twice, however the sharks scored two goals and were able to get the win. which caused the coach to hold a
practice that was harder than usual this morning. >> sometimes you need that in your practice and this morning we did. and we had some pretty good practicing battles and it's good for our team. >> coming off the break, we got to get to kind of the foundation of what we are, and get back to, you know, individual and collective of competitiveness. >> that is your look at sports, we'll see you at 11:00. for now i'm danny pommells, csn, we'll be right back.
so above freezing temperatures for the stroke of midnight new year's eve, that's good. >> and temperatures above average no rain, no snow. it's going to be pretty windy, gusts over to 40 miles an hour tomorrow. a little bit of a warming trend over the weekend, some nasty rain monday and tuesday, and toward is end of next weeks, as i wrote in my blog a few days ago, a big change in the weather pattern, colder and favoring
snow for the weekend. >> thanks for watching, i'm jacqueline london. nbc "nightly news" is next what tamron hall filling in. good night. tonight, russia hack payback. president obama strikes back for russia's cyber attacks, slapping down sanctions, picking dozens of diplomats out of the u.s. but president-elect trump says it's time to move on. nasty nor'easter. a powerful winter blast of ice, freezing rain, some expecting over a foot of snow. 14 million feeling the wrath. new year's alert. an unprecedented level of security in times square. law enforcement ramping up around the world after a year of horrific terror attacks. hollywood heartbreak. tributes pouring in for legendary star debbie reynolds. so many in shock over her back-to-back death with daughter carrie fisher. and one last taste.
