meteorologist krystal klei. windy morning. winds have started to crank up and are starting to enter the region and that will strengthen the winds over the next couple of hours. for the entire region from now through about 4:00 this afternoon we're looking at the high winds picking up. that's the constant wind you will feel about 15 to 25 miles an hour which doesn't sound that bad except for there will be gusts 40 to 50 miles an hour. if you have a weak tree somewhere this could knock those things over so the issue is you may wake up to a bit of a mess out there. that will be the case throughout our morning hours. wind gusts will be fairly strong.
the front is starting to enter the region. 24-mile-per-hour gusts in philadelphia, and 31 in allentown. atlantic city up to 36-mile-per-hour gusts. so far no reports of damage. if you do have reports you can find me on facebook and let me know what you're seeing. temperatures very mild, though, because before that cold front passes we had a warm front move through and as i talked about yesterday it warmed us up overnight. we'll talk about that in a few minutes. thank you, crystal. the final day of marathon weekend in philadelphia. yesterday thousands of runners crossed the finish line of the philadelphia half marathon. >> dry yesterday. they may have some wet conditions today. the men's winner finished the half marathon in just over an hour setting a new course record. we'll see what happens today. it is the big event, the full marathon, 26.2 miles. >> and road closures are in

size in dent. take a look at this map here, 26.2 miles. you can also anticipate there are those road closures in effect throughout the area so bare that in mind. another live look here along the parkway. we're about 22nd street here. this will be the start/finish line. now all the rain on cue starting to pick up more. as the runners start to come in they'll get a little shower. matt delucia, nbc 10. back to you. as matt mentioned there are a lot of traffic closures in place for the marathon. many around the ben franklin parkway where the race begins and ends. the race starts at 10:00 a.m. you can catch live streaming coverage on nbc10.com and the nbc 10 app.

right about the start time. i think that's about the case at 7:00 a.m. or so. it should move out of philadelphia. areas like south jersey and delaware, the shore may take longer and then it will be moving out. let's take a closer look for those people starting to get closer to that direction early this morning. a little pocket of steady rainfall in delaware county near chester. this is going to move into south philly. the art museum is set up and we are going to be seeing this move along from west to east. it's not going to be in place for a long time at this point. we're on the closing end of this. take a look. this is an hour by hour focus in on the philly area. 59 degrees is where we're starting the gusts at 25 to 30 miles an hour. we have rain on future radar. this is moving out of philly county still near 60 degrees at 6:00 a.m. this morning and still about 25-mile-per-hour gusts. by 7:00 a.m., see you later. the rain is moving out.
gusts are picking up because the cold front. temperature is falling. this is 53 at start time. let's go through the next few hours, about 47 at 10:00 a.m. still quite windy. and then the temperature will start to fall in the afternoon into those upper 40s only for that 3:00 hour. we're going to talk more about our temperatures for all our neighborhoods coming up in a few minutes. we'll see you shortly. also coming up tomorrow night at 11:00, the breakthrough in the fight against cancer here in this area. bill ludwig was dying before he was the first to try a new cancer treatment. it worked for him, and then worked on 9-year-old austin here. now the question is, who is next to beat cancer? hear about the new treatment offering hope. monday on nbc 10.

>> reporter: it's when that flag dude tells you the race is over. tim furlong, nbc 10 news. santa is coming to town today. he'll be part of the annual mayfair thanksgiving day parade that kicks off at noon. the scene this year, scouting. the scouts will collect nonperishable food asking spectators to help someone else this holiday season. toys for tots will be accepting donations. over in montgomery county, hatboro is holding a parade today that starts at 2:00 this afternoon along york road. this year's theme is holiday hoe-down. that means york road will be closed starting at 12:30. meteorologist krystal klei here. a live view of cape may, new jersey. it's a dark picture, i know, but i want to show off the flag here, really blowing in the wind
because gusts are starting to pick up a bit. 25 to 35 miles per hour currently. i would not be surprised at gusts for our top reports by the time this front has moved through. as is typical when a strong cold front passes by it cranks up the winds and that's what we're dealing with now. a look at some of our temperatures, we're at 59 in the lehigh valley and 58 in delaware. south jersey, we're almost at 60 in philadelphia. really impressive numbers on the board to start a morning, just mild because it was overnight that warm front allowed for warm air to pool over us. so instead of falling overnight, which is typical of temperatures, they actually rose overnight. so our philadelphia neighborhoods, wow, this is so funny to look at numbers almost 60 degrees. that would be warmer than average for our afternoon high. 57 west mount airy. the marathon starting in this area, those runners with about
60-degree temps they're warming up. if you're ready to head out the door, that's the temperature you'll be dealing with. it will be falling throughout the morning hours to the low 50s and upper 40s. what we're dealing with are the end of the showers that we started seeing yesterday in the afternoon just as expected. we had some pockets of heavy rain overnight. we still do have a few pockets of heavier rain through parts of philadelphia and then into south jersey and into kent county as well. this will be in south jersey before it gets out of here entirely. this is a wider view to show you the rotation. that will be moving out by 7:00, 8:00 in the morning. what you see behind spotty returns on radar. a few lake effect snow showers popping up. i don't think much will make it to us. an isolated flake or flurry this afternoon. we should remain dry everywhere else. this is a look at the high temperatures we're expecting. this is a little bit confusing
to explain. these are the afternoon high temperatures that you will see. they're not the actual high temperatures of the day. it happened at midnight and for many spots it was around 60. 53 this afternoon in philly. 56 at the shore. mid-50s in delaware. this is the seven day. jersey, southern delaware, starting to move off the shore by 8:30 a.m. we'll actually start to clear out and see a good bit of sunshine as we get into the afternoon. this is at noon. and then right throughout the afternoon hours a few spotty clouds. otherwise a clear, dry forecast. remember, we're under a first alert for those windy conditions and they're not going anywhere. 30 to 45-mile-per-hour gusts peaking up to 50 possible. those temperatures falling as the winds crank up through the morning hours. pull it in real quick this morning. downed tree limbs, something we'll watch for if the gusts
affect anything. we'll let you know about that as well. >> thanks for that, krystal. it is the big day. >> in the big "d." >> for the fans all flocking to texas to catch the action. up next, a preview from dallas. plus, a superstar with all five starters in double figures. the warriors were also ready for a big shoot-out. highlights next in sports.
hey, good morning. good to see you as always. i'm danny pommells from nbc sports philadelphia. eagles/cowboys on "sunday night football" just hours away. the birds landed in dallas yesterday afternoon and, of course, our guy johnny airport, john clark, was there. >> eagles! >> reporter: here are the birds
arriving to their team hotel late this afternoon, and we all know about the rivalry with the cowboys. eagles rookie corey clemens knows about the rivalry but, guess what, he became a cowboys fan. he said once he would stay a fan for life. but things change when your hometown team drafts you. now he has to try and beat the cowboys for the first time. >> let's just say this week is the only thing that matters. back then it was something i grew up watching. we're all dialed into it. we have to handle this and just do what we have to do and have fun. >> a crash court on what the dallas/eagles rivalry means. >> everybody is excited about it. it looks like a pep rally in this hotel. we're ready. >> reporter: as you know the cowboys are desperate, they are banged up, but you can't count them out. two of the last three games
against the birds have gone to overtime. in irving, texas, i'm john clark, nbc sports philadelphia. >> john, we appreciate it as always. today on nbc 10 "eagles gameday kickoff" begins at 9:30. game time is 8:30 tonight. be sure to stay with us after the game. busy day on the phillies sports scene. the sixers hosting the nba champs. the sixers put up 47 in the first quarter. joel embiid coming off a career high 46 against the lakers. he could have used some of that last night. ben simmons, with 23. two rebounds short of a triple-double. off the warriors' miss, a pretty outlook. he had 21. the sixers up 74-52 at the half. steph curry scored 20 of his 35 as the warriors come back like some bad tuna.
draymond green with some tenacity finishing at the rim. sixers up 22 to start the period, trail by ten. they fall 124-116. >> we were just bad in the third quarter. you have to give them a lot of credit. they were aggressive and physical with us especially in the second half. they did what they had to do and got a win. the flyers had a 2-0 lead over the jets in the first game before yesterday's tilt. they lost that in overtime. yesterday a 3-1 lead over the flames, and guess what happened. we go straight to ot, flames on the rush. michael frolik gets open ice and his one-timer does not miss. flyers lose, 5-4. take another trip to heartbreak hotel, let a point slip away. slump, 142 rushing in his last three games combined. barkley broke out of that slump
in a hurry against nebraska. he had 158 yards and three touchdowns. and this 65-yard rom on penn state's opening drive. nittany lions win. one final note to pass along, temple lost to florida 59-14. i'm danny sports, nbc sports philadelphia. a few minutes before 6:00 on this sunday morning, and it is marathon day in philadelphia. >> that's right. matt delucia is live along the ben franklin parkway where the race begins a little later this morning. hey, matt. >> reporter: hi, dray and rosemary. about an hour away from the start of the race and we've had a little bit of rain here, more steady rain here as of late in the last half hour. these guys are getting ready to go. more live pictures and a live interview after the break. and i'm betting matt is noticing the winds, too. gusty conditions right now, about 25 to 35-mile-per-hour gusts currently. they may be even higher the next few hours. we'll check them out for you and
