this is "nbc 10 news today." i'm rosemary connors. >> i'm dray clark. the countdown you see there on your screen is on. we're now just a little bit less than 12 hours away from kickoff at the linc today. >> meteorologist krystal klei is tracking that all-important gameday forecast and it's a winner, krystal. >> it is a winner. mother nature has been -- they made it real nice for us. temperatures are a bit chilly out there. right around freezing for many spots. philadelphia at 33 degrees. mt. holly at 31. dover at 33. allentown, warmer at 39 degrees. a ten-degree difference in atlantic city. 29 for the current reading. you might see this and go, that doesn't look that good. but, remember yesterday we started out around freezing. made it up to 57 in philadelphia for a high yesterday. we will not get that warm. here's why. we've got clouds sitting to the west but moving our way. there will be increased cloud coverage for your sunday.
not rain, just clouds. temperatures will pick up. if you're headed out early, 41. by 1:00, 49. increasing clouds. mostly cloudy by 4:00. look at that number. 50. with light winds. we'll talk about what to expect hour by hour during the game coming up. >> we'll be sticking around for it. thanks, krystal. >> let's call this the calm before the storm. this is another live look inside the linc from our eagles nest camera. hours from now, as we said, about 12 hours from now, it will be rough and rowdy. the birds will host the minnesota vikings in the nfc championship game. pumped and ready for action. >> you got that right. tailgating gets it under way bright and early. randy gyllenhaal is there with the early risers. hey, randy. >> reporter: hey. you can't technically go into the tailgating lot yet. that doesn't open for a couple of hours. in the next little bit, we're going to see a ton of fans lining up rvs and big buses and
cars on 11th street waiting for the lots to open so they can get a prime spot. the first car, by the way, is my man greg. you may have seen him an hour ago. we're going to hop in the car with him and chat about the tailgate. >> greg, since 5:00 a.m. this morning. i'm not feeling till the gate opens. >> you got tickets? >> yeah, i did. my uncle's friend got me a ticket in section 128. i'll be in the end zone going out of my mind. >> what are you doing until kickoff? >> what i do is, i think about the game, how the defense is going to play. i think about the fans. how we're going to give it. we're going to bring it. i'm bringing it for four quarters, no voice monday. >> greg, are you thinking -- >> i'm off from work tomorrow. there's no nap. you don't sleep during the gape. here's a message for jeff lurie. jeff, i'm the first one down here. i love your team and we're going to party all night.
you will dance tonight, jeff, i guarantee it. >> reporter: the party will be here in south philly. we'll hang with greg in the warm car as the tailgaters start coming the next couple of hours. tune in live. we're live in greg's car. randy gyllenhaal, nbc 10 news. no naps out there, randy. before the minnesota vikings endure the sound of the eagles fans like greg there at the linc, they have something else ringing in their ears. take a listen. love it. eagles fans gave the minnesota vikings a greeting, warm welcome. you're also looking at the vikes walking through a flock of birds at center city. fiep, there were a few vikings fans. they were jockeying for position outside with the eagles fans. but the birds got a seat. >> fans are really passionate. should be pretty intense. i'm hoping for a good game. >> listen, don't count the eagles out. we're taking it. we're going to win. i don't know about these guys
right here, but they don't look that big to me. i think we got them. >> minnesota fans did their traditional skol chant. you can be sure that fly eagles fly will drown that out this evening. if you are headed to the game this evening, be careful where you park. >> definitely. consider mass transit to get to the linc today. matt delucia is live in south philadelphia with important information for fans. good morning, matt. >> reporter: good morning, dray and rosemary. wall street is a popular place to park, even now filled with cars. later this afternoon, all these cars have to go. you want to see these signs, go birds, but unfortunately, you have to deal with these signs from philly police warning drivers to get their cars off the street. both sides of the shoulder here, south of south street down to the stadium complex. again, that is for the rest of the day until tomorrow morning. now, if you are going to be
taking mass transit, perhaps septa down to the game or patco, here's a bit of advice. if you can get on the line for $4. you buy the pro rock or city hall. there's a sports express train that will be starting a little after 3:30, running every ten minutes leading to kickoff. patco is operating on a special schedule with trains operating every 20 minutes for most of the day. if you're on broad street and see the cars still here, about seven hours until they have to be moved out of the way where you perhaps risk getting towed. that's definitely not what you want on a day like this when you're hoping the birds win. >> go birds. >> right there. that's my truck. it's going to be bananas. >> do you have a car parked here? >> absolutely not. >> go eagles, baby.
>> reporter: resident here. don't park your car out here. rosemary, dray, back to you. >> i love when that happens on live tv. after stops around the region, our eagles road to victory bus will be in one place today. xfinity live in south philadelphia. the bus will be there today from 10:00 to 6:00, stop by for give-aways and to write a message on the bus to cheer on the birds. count on nbc 10 to have you covered before and after tonight's nfc title game. our coverage begins at 10:00 this morning and runs throughout the day. then join us after the game for live reaction and exclusive interviews. the official television station of the philadelphia eagles. the time now 7:07. the birds have home field advantage tonight. >> yes, but does that mean they have the upper hand? ahead in sports, we break down the defense we'll see in this nfc title game. also ahead, government shutdown. today is the second day without services. closed to sites.

the most part. we'll see the numbers staying very mild the rest of the day. our delaware neighborhoods, wilmington at 30. harmony hills at 28. glasgow at 28 as well. farther south and areas like this, 36 and dewey beach 32 degrees. to start. again, might be cold right now. if you start at freezing, going up. going to be above freezing the rest of the day. like yesterday, many spots will make it into the 50s. on the radar and satellite view, a nice wide view that shows us a clear picture in parts of new jersey and delaware. but the clouds are closing in from the west end of the northwest. we're starting to see things building. i know your eye is going to this thinking what is that? is it going to turn into something? am i going to get rained on during my game? no. looks like we should stay dry. this graphic is giving me troubles. it looks like it's putting a pause button in.
i've got a wider view to show you and explain what i am talking about. let's see if we can get it to move forward. i apologize. this i can show you the hour-by-hour forecast. we have clouds right now sitting mostly to the west. we pull it over to the 3:00 hour. now we have increasing cloud cover. mostly cloudy conditions by this afternoon. your tailgating, you're seeing the clouds, getting worried. don't worry. notice, there's no green across the board here. as we get to game time, this is at 6:30, close to kickoff. yes there may be a few isolated showers, mostly to the north and west of us. i don't have concerns through tailgating and kickoff for any rain in philly. end of game, at 11:00 p.m., there's where we could see a spot spring will possibly make its way to philly. that means you turn the windshield wipers as you celebrate on the car ride home. into monday, early morning hours, an isolated shower the rest of monday. it's looking like a mostly cloudy forecast. let's run through the three-day outlook.
52 degrees today. kickoff at 48 is the temperature. 54 on monday and cloudy. 58 on tuesday with the rainy conditions. in the suburbs, 54 on your tuesday and 52 in the lehigh valley for new jersey. rising to upper 50s. and delaware. we're in day two of a government shutdown the first of donald trump's presidency. >> it comes on the one-year anniversary of the president's inauguration. how lawmakers got there and the work cut out for themselves is up for discussion on "meet the press" which airs at a special time at 9:00 this morning. moderator's meet the press chuck todd joins us now. >> good morning, rosemary and dray. >> good morning, chuck. >> we're going to start to see the effects of the shutdown tomorrow when thousands of nonessential employees don't report to work. it sounds like lawmakers are digging in here. where do negotiations stand this morning? >> look, i think we have a 12 to 24-hour window here to see this
reopen or i think we're here sort of until an actual deal is reached on the d.r.e.a.m.er iss issue. this is the issue. democrats supposedly are only looking for a commitment to vote on a d.r.e.a.m.er compromised bill that's essentially been hammered out via an outline. there's a lot of mistrust right now between senate democrats, a handful of republicans and the white house. and because of that, i don't know if they will -- if democrats will relent to a temporary reopening of the government with just an oral agreement on bringing a bill to the floor. i think that's where we stand. if there's not movement, i think, in the next sort of today first thing tomorrow, if we get through tomorrow and we're still shutdown, that's the first workday, business day of the week, then i think everybody digs in and we're probably here for a couple of weeks. >> also, chuck, this shutdown, of course, coincides with the
one-year anniversary of donald trump's presidency, which we marked this weekend and nbc has new poll numbers out. what do they say about his first year in office? >> i think it shows that you this president, that the country is judging him by his character than by any substance or policy he's signed into law. there's a split person amount of the public. on one hand the public has never been more optimistic about the state of the economy, never felt better about their finances, highest optimism about the economy not since the late '930s. however, the president recorded the lowest job rating in the history of our polling. there's a great way to show you how. a year ago we asked folks to give us a word or phrase to describe how they view the incoming presidency of donald trump and the number one word used was hopeful. a year later, we did the same thing. and the number one word used is disgusting. that tells me he's getting judged on his personal behavior
almost more so than his -- anything substantive that he is has done. >> what a difference. thank you, chuck. thank you for being with us. >> we'll take a look at the trump presidency one year later. that will be the focus of meet the press. as i mentioned, it does come at a special time this morning here on nbc 10. it airs at 9:00. we'll be right back.
count on nbc 10 to have you covered before the nfc title game. coverage begins this morning at 10:00 and runs throughout the day. join us after the game for live reaction and exclusive interviews. it's coverage only on nbc 10, the official television station of the philadelphia eagles. >> we got our signs. >> oh, yeah. >> fly eagles fly. >> and we're dressed for the occasion. >> all in green. all ready to cheer them on. >> here's a live view from center city. it looks like it's windy. but the winds will be quite light today. that will not be a problem. >> this was the graphic i was trying to show you earlier. temperatures 43 degrees. light winds. as we get into the afternoon, this is at 3:00 p.m. we're mostly cloudy for our tailgaters. look at that. 51 degrees. then as we run through that game time start, upper 40s, we will fall to the low 40s, but it looks like we'll stay dry. this is a great gameday forecast. >> not as many layers this weekend. >> that's going to do it for us
the american people should expect better. >> no one deserves the blame more than president trump. >> and now, larry, it's your turn to listen to me. good morning and welcome to "sunday today" on this january 21st, a year and a day since president donald trump was inaugerated. i'm willie geist. the president was expected to celebrate at his estate in mar-a-lago this weekend. instead he's holed up trying to end a government shutdown that's now in its second day.
