9:10 am
we hold clouds into tonight. mostly cloudy conditions going through your day. in delaware, 43 degrees at noon. mid 40s to upper 40s. up to 45 degrees by 4:00 p.m. dry conditions don't last the entire forecast. we will get to that in a bit. funeral plans coming together for debbie reynolds and carrie fisher. they died within a day of each other. reynolds' son says they'll have a joint funeral, be buried together. no date is set but the ceremony and service will be private. coming up, a new soda tax, hard to swallow for shoppers in philadelphia, especially because they got hit earlier than expected at some stores just as they were buying supplies for
9:11 am
new year's eve. we have that story next.
9:12 am
9:13 am
philadelphia soda tax hitting shoppers earlier than expected. some stores have already started to charge more for sugary drinks before the tax goes into effect tomorrow. actually stores have already raised prices, they did that yesterday. a store spokesperson tells nbc10
9:14 am
it comes down to advertising. they set prices by week on fridays and want to be consistent. shoppers stocking up for tonight weren't happy about it. >> almost $8 for a 12 back of soda. 5.50 for a gallon of ice tea, can't get over it. how is the little guy supposed to make ends meet, it was hard enough, just got harder. >> it adds 1.5 cents of tax for each ounce. the mayor pushed for it for early education and recreation centers in philadelphia. bill cosby's lawyers don't believe the actor can get a fair trial in montgomery county. yesterday they filed a motion asking for a change of venue. it was a year ago cosby was charged with drugging and molesting a former temple university employee in 2004. his attorney says he is a target of a smear campaign by the media. bring in a jury from outside montgomery county. the district attorney has said he is not opposed to that request.
9:15 am
let's talk about the weather. this this is in canada. people are skating down the roads. too treacherous to bring out the cars. this is from ontario and quebec. they had so much ice, they're trying to make the best of the situation. more than a half inch ice accumulated in some neighborhoods. very different picture here in the northeast, krystal. >> very different indeed. if we had that situation for new year's eve, a lot of people might be staying in. you can go out tonight. things are looking good considering we are at end of the year. temperatures are still chilly. it is end of december. here's your new jersey neighborhoods. a lot of us climbed above freezing or near it. but that's it. not talking 40s yet. turnersville, 33 degrees. audubon the same. mount laurel, cooler, down to 27
9:16 am
degrees. 32 for robbinsville, princeton climbed from 19 to 25. but still cold. feels like temperatures are even lower in some spots across the region. here's the radar and satellite. as expected, clouds started to move in and blanketed the area. models try to give us more sunshine than we're going to see. we're going to hang more on partly cloudy, mostly cloudy forecast. not the entire day, maybe some breaks of sun. i suspect we will have cloudiness throughout today and into tonight. here's the new years forecast neighborhood by enabled. if you're in philadelphia, maybe you go out for the 6:00 fireworks show. 41 degrees. if you can't catch that, we are airing it on nbc10. 38 degrees for midnight. just remember, it will start to get chilly. on top of that, i am going to show you in a moment, there's an isola isolated chance for light rain, briefly at most. this is not a long lasting
9:17 am
storm. temperatures 6:00 to midnight, near freezing in the lehigh valley by midnight. warmer, in the lower 40s for south jersey, the shore and delaware at 6:00. notice clouds hang on as well. here's the hour by hour model. this is not doing a great job with clouds. we have clouds in place. remember that. those clouds hang throughout the afternoon and especially moving into the evening. now showing the clouds move by. it is giving us that light potential for rain. this is more scary than it will be. first off, temperatures are too warm to see snow, maybe a few flakes. overall much of this won't make it to the surface. look how quickly this rolls off. 8:00 to midnight. if you have outdoor plans, i don't think you need to cancel them, there's a small chance. we clear up into sunday which is good news for mummers parade and cowboys and eagles game.
9:18 am
heading to tailgating time, 42 degrees. 1:00 kickoff, 47 degrees. end of game, still in the upper 40s. mostly sunny conditions for sunday. we will get to the ten day forecast coming up. one in san jose. they gave up five powerplay goals in three games. sharks shut out the flyers 2-0. here's the rest of your saturday morning sports. hey, i'm danny pommells from csn. joel embiid returned to the sixers lineup, but jhalil okafor hamstring injury he suffered
9:19 am
ilyasova, 4 for 4 from outside. sixers led by as many as ten. fourth quarter, sixers up a basket. to nik stauskas, sixers 14th -- 16 threes and hang onto win 124-122. the cowboys come into the linc sunday with a 13-2 record, and have secured home field throughout the playoff, which leads to speculation about which quarterback may play. you may see them all, including dak prescott's status and espn reports say he will play. head coach jason garrett wouldn't say. speaking of quarterbacks, carson wentz turned 24 friday, and you can catch our exclusive sit down with the birthday boy on eagles game day kickoff sunday at 9:30 on nbc10. here's wentz on his roller coaster rookie season. >> i kind of came out guns ablazing. it was tough, though. you know, it was tough to kind of deal with some of those losses. being in all of those games, all
9:20 am
close games, having chances to win and not sealing the deal late in those ball games was frustrating. we know we're a good team. we just didn't pull enough out in the end. how about some college hoops? st. joe's hosting g.w. we've got more drama than a soap opera. final minute, hawks up one. lamarr kimble, 0 for 3 from distance. make that 1 for 4. st. joseph's wins 68-63. penn also won but lasalle took it on the chin tonight. 66-65. had to come back from double digit deficit. second half, comes underneath. stays with it. 27 points for him.
9:21 am
season high 45 boards, the quakers overall win their third straight 74-68. that is sports. i'm danny pommells. nbc10 continues our commitment to clear the shelters and find homes foray doptable pets this time every saturday morning. we are joined by ame and we have paddington. >> thank you for having us this morning. this is paddington. he is about seven-year-old pit bull mix. he is an interesting story. he was found at 30th street station, patiently waiting, a good samaritan saw him, walked over to make sure he was okay, he had a sign that said please take care of this dog. so the founder brought him home, did everything he could to try to find paddington a home but was unsuccessful. eventually he had to bring them to us to find him a home.

i'm sara gore and this is "open house." this week we are stopping by a stunning italian style villa in los angeles. we visit an amazing townhouse off madison avenue that exudes glamor in every room, plus an exquisite limestone home in new york city with original details and modern upgrades, and designer to watch, casey debois, shows us her clients stylish space. but first, she's the queen of luxury lighting and more. we head to the hollywood home of marjorie skouras. there are no rules when designing for oneself, which is part of the fun. from the front door, which is inspired by 19th century french damask to the moss covered closet doors. but you can tell this is not going to be your average home decor experience.
