company say there is no evidence it causes a loss of hair. the mild weather appears to be stalling the flu season. well below normal. doctors say that could be because airborne germs fall to the ground more quickly in warm, damp air. they stress if you've already got your shot, you should still be protected. it's never a good idea to get more than one flu shot in a season, they say. tense moments on live television today. a reporter in rochester, minnesota, was taking about a robbery that took place at a bank. yesterday is when this happened, when all of a sudden this scene took place. >> just 24 hours ago, -- >> the bad guy right there. >> what? >> that's the robber. >> that's the robber. this is live tv folks, that's the robber that just went by

others who drink too much at open bars may not keep their hands to themselves, and some may talk inappropriately about presidential politics and ways to offend, and even get people fired. >> the more you are talking about a hot button emotional issue in a workplace setting which is what the office holiday party still is, the more you are risking somebody being offended, or somebody raising a complaint. >> reporter: schmidt says they must make it clear that workplace protocols do not go out the window during holiday parties. >> you're still being judged. you have to be careful. >> reporter: because here, even all dressed up, having fun, you are still at work. >> oh, yes you are. lonnie quinn join us now.

that's the new record for this day. 43 is where you should be. it will be in the 50s, not the 60s, but 50s, still above average tomorrow. rain will creep in late tomorrow. maybe light rain, more likely to see the wet weather on thursday. future cast will show you what i'm talking about. now wednesday starts off just fine. i think the daytime hours, pretty nice out there, as a matter of fact. that's your slight chance for shower creeping in late around 9:30 tomorrow. more likely to see it on thursday, as we're going to see a front through the area. oranges, yellows, even the reds. throughout your day on thursday. then friday morning, and still a little leftover moisture still with you to start off friday. look at that. that's just indicative of the colder air that will eventually get here. i really think it gets here by the time you get to saturday. low pressure out around i'll say the northern plains. that's a big snowstorm out there. this skinny line of green,
associated with that low pressure system. that's going to combine offshore. as this low goes up north into canada, that's going to push the rain chances into our area. anybody could see a half inch to an inch for your day on thursday. come on, we have a deficit over 10 inches. we'll take what we can get. i know you don't want to root for a rainy day. you need some moisture. 51 on friday. then that cold air will set up by saturday. 41 will be the warmest reading you get. that's actually below average. 44 on sunday. then next week, you're right back to 50 degrees or above, and i've seen some crazy numbers for christmas day. i was telling you before, i'm talking close to 70s. we'll watch that and have more for you tomorrow. >> thank you, lonnie. otis living stone looking ahead to sports tonight. >> denied once again. we hear from a disappointed, and yet still gambling pete
your game, you've come to the right place. 90 years ago today, the first nhl game in new york took place. what better way to celebrate than than with all three area teams playing. the rangers hosting the oilers. tie game in the 2nd. defenseman, and he's a rookie blasts it past nielsen for his first nhl goal. the game tied now, late in the 2nd. rick nash stays with the puck, puts in the power play goal. the rangers win it 4-2. they move past the islanders and are now second in the division, which brings us to the islanders. new york outshot florida early in the game. but the panthers scored first on just their third shot of the game. riley smith makes it 1-0 panthers. the islanders on the rush. brock nelson tips in his 10th of the season to cut the lead
florida makes it a 2 goal lead again when the shotslips past jaroslav halak. the new jersey boys also playing in buffalo. there to bury the rebound. he said i've got your back buddy. new jersey goalie corey schneider with 25 saves tonight gets the shutout. 2-0 devils. how about some mets news, lefty reliever, jerry blevins resigns to a one year contract. a day after having his lifetime ban from baseball upheld, pete rose says he should be commissioner because he watches and promotes so much baseball. he also said he recreationally gambles, but says he can help others with his story. he's still hoping to get into the hall of fame some day after all the highs and lows the game has dealt him. >> i spent 26 years in the major leagues, and 26 years out of the major leagues, and i can
last 26 years were a hell of a lot worse than the 26 years i spent in the big leagues, as you can imagine. when we return, the monmouth bench was at it again, another celebration. but would they celebrate another big win this time over georgetown? kids don't stay little forever. so help them get the opportunity they need. it's never too early or too late to save for college. you can open a ny 529 account with just $25. and you may get tax benefits

add the georgetown hoyas to the teams knocked off by the monmouth hawks. up 13, they go on to win by 15. they broke out a new celebration. the creation of adam on the ceiling of the sistine chapel. they are creative and winning. the jets currently in the 6th and final spot in the afc playoff race. it's possible they could win their last three games, and still not make it though, thanks to the tiebreaker system.
next game, with the playoffs down the road. i'm talking about todd bowles. >> that's what you want to do. but there's a process to go about that. obviously, you see the playoffs at the end of the tunnel, but in a short area right now is the dallas cowboys. >> don't forget to tune into our pregame show game night at 7:00. catch the jets, as they look to keep their playoff hopes alive against the cowboys. >> they should have a good shot there. the cowboys have been struggling. >> i think so. no tony romo, if that defense gets after the cowboys quarterback, they should have a shot. the thing is, even if they finish on a six game winning streak, and end up at 11:5, that's still a successful season. you can't point to a spot where they dropped the ball. >> good season so far. thank you.
