10:39 pm
little bit of a westerly breed right now, about 10-15 miles per hour. now starting to see a difference past few weeks we had all warm air in place, now the cold air's starting to build south from canada. you can see it from minneapolis to chicago, detroit, syracuse and eneven here in new york city where temps are in the 30s, and that's what it's going to look like for the next few days. skies are mostly clear, a few scattered clouds drifting on by, and we still have those persistent lake effect snow bands north and west, especially places like buffalo. already got about a foot of snow, we're going to be adding to that tomorrow. snow showers with the old air pouring in. there's a cold front moving through michigan right now, and that front is going to be responsible for bringing us the cold blast that will get here on monday. that's really when you're going to feel the chill in the air. so as we take you through the night tonight, no problems, just a couple of scattered clouds. we look good tomorrow morning
10:40 pm
visibility will be excellent, a beautiful but cold morning. here comes that cold front. we'll get a couple of scattered clouds and, yes, the cold air on monday. that's when the big change will arrive, but this is the good news. even though it's going to be cold, we'll be enjoying sunshine and nice dry weather. overnight tonight lows 22-33 degrees right near freezing for many of us. tomorrow one last day where we'll make it into the 40s. we have clear skies in the morning, more clouds around and then temperatures will be falling pretty quickly as we head into monday. 31 for the high right there, that's during the afternoon. below freezing. same thing for tuesday, we're near 30 degrees. and with the wind, it will feel colder than that. a pretty day though, pretty weather. we have more sunshine coming your way for wednesday into thursday, then temps go back up. so it's a short-lived little cold blast. our next chance of wet weather doesn't get here until saturday, so all the winter, you know, jackets and gloves and hats we

10:43 pm
down to the wire. >> it's a divisional game. if we can defeat the philadelphia eagles, we will have split with all our divisional opponents. it's very important to win your last game. and anybody sitting in that room that doesn't think it's important to play well in the last game, they need to have their heads examined. >> and all eyes will be on the jets game as well tomorrow for different reasons. be they beat the bills and their former head coach rex ryan in buffalo, they're in the playoffs. but there's a scenario if they lose as well, they'd have to depend on the steelers losing or tying to the brown z -- browns as well. >> kim patrick, enzone! -- end zone! the jets win in overtime. >> the jets are finishing the season playing their best ball of the year. last week's surprising win over the patriots was their fifth straight. they're favored to win again tomorrow in buffalo, but coach
