5:12 am
often but today because it's a little muggy out there, i do want to mention that so keep in mind, it's muggy with those low level clouds. that fog moving through. so headlines include that dense fog early this morning. the sun does come out as everything mixes out. the sun will evaporate everything and certainly improve conditions soon enough. so a splendid afternoon in forecast. visibility is poor. so drive slowly, take your time getting to those black friday sales. and now what is fog? it's simply low level clouds on the ground. a lot of time it happens when there's differences in temperatures, especially along the surface. so light winds and an inversion layer. you can find us on cbsnewyork.com. and now our vortex radar picking up on the low level clouds, if you notice here, not very bright. some light gray of course. that's telling us that the fog is in place. and if we take a wider look, this is that cold front we have
5:13 am
and all of those showers will start to dip down but they won't make it over the mountains so i'm not expecting too much saturday. but we have a chance of showers for the following tuesday and wednesday. right now, keeping things high and dry. i would say superb shopping conditions. but i think i say that every day. that's probably not the best thing for me. and cooler temperatures by the weekend as the cold front slides through. and we do see those clouds break later today and temperatures for today topping out in the low to mid-60s. and maybe a few upper 60s. it's going to be warm out there. certainly above normal. and keeping nit the 40s. and the extended forecast is looking really good but 54 for tomorrow. so 46 by sunday. and starting off the following work week, a little bit cooler. ladies, back to you. >> and a good day to shop online. we can find a way, right? some long island residents got quite the scare on their thanksgiving morning after

5:46 am
championship was played on thanksgiving. football has been played on thanksgiving every year since 1869. let's start off with the cowboys and panthers. can you believe the panthers were the first 10-0 team to be the underdog since the bears in '58. and ironically, the bears mauled the cowboys 44-0 in that thanksgiving day game. and history repeated itself. tony romo was pickoff three time, two back for a touchdown. the first offensive touchdown didn't happen until the 3rd when cam newton made it a 24- point game. it's hard to imagine things could have gotten worse for the cowboys but they did. tony romo suffers another collarbone injury, reportedly out for the season. cowboys lose by 19. the panthers are now 11-0. the eagles are still mathematically alive in terms of making the play-offs in the nfc or are they? last week they lost by 28 to the bucs and yesterday they get blind sided by a lion's team
5:47 am
who suddenly turned the corner after ownership fired all the front office. stafford tying his career best with five touchdown pass, three to calvin johnson. the lions win their third straight game, a 31-point blowout. the eagles are now 4 happen 7. i'm steve overmyer, have a great -- now 4-7. i'm steve overmyer, have a great day. >> in our house, we watch football. >> my dad is like, shhh, stop talking. >> yeah, we say we're watching football and you come in and the eyes are closed. erika martin is in for john elliott. >> i'm excited because we have a warm day on tap. and speaking of steve, hi, thank you so much for following me on twitter. i'm a fan. current temperatures, 42 degrees in babylon. and white plain, 43 along with greenwich and sparta cooler with 31 degrees. we are starting to see a shift
5:48 am
if the winds westerly. white plains, this is your temperature difference from yesterday. 10 degrees warmer this warmer than yesterday at this same time. 18-degree difference. relative humidity, i can't show you this enough, it's moist. keep in mind, we have that dense fog advisory until 9:00 a.m. for parts of new york city and northern new jersey as well. and southern fairfield county. you start to see the frontal boundary pushing through with the showers. and unfortunately, not making it so i don't think we will see showers on saturday. perhaps a couple sprinkles and. it will be cooler by the following week. back to you. >> thank you. a mom in florida hosted a group of marines who couldn't go see their families for thanksgiving. >> she welcomed 15 marines who served with her son at a naval air station in jacksonville. she says the meal was about more than celebrating just the holidays. >> these young men and women have written a blank check to the united states of america

5:50 am
deals you are shopping on this black friday. especially on normally pricy electronics. >> but for certain device, it's better to wait to buy. >> reporter: according to cnet, blue tooth speaker cans be found cheap throughout the year. the one exception is for high- end speakers like the years boom. pricier speakers leave more room for discounts. no brand tablets are a no-no. off labels will make the rounds on black friday but don't buy into the hype. you can almost always find great deals. for example, amazon's fire tablet is just $50. and there will be plenty of laptops on sale but consider waiting the you're in the market for a high-end model. you will see the best prices during the back to school sales. and don't buy anything super new. you will see some exceptions but for the most part, fresh products don't see big cut oscars on black friday. >> so be patient, it will pay off. >> if by patience you mean
