the current temperature is 32 degrees. we have hit the freezing mark in philadelphia. that means any leftover water along the sides of roadways or any moisture on sidewalks or side streets that wasn't already frozen may be freezing up now so be careful of those icy patches on foot and behind the wheel. winds have picked up to 22 miles per hour and we are looking at wind chills making it feel like it is in the teens and 20's and this is why. the winds are dropping right down out of the north this morning 10 miles per hour winds in allentown and reading, 18 in wilmington. it kind of fluctuates. you can sort of flip-flop these numbers all over the map as we go through the morning and afternoon. the bottom line is it's going to be windy and pretty cold today. clouds eroding off to the north over the last couple hours so we should see sunshine in play today. there won't be any precipitation but it will be on the cold side. 28 degrees by 8 o'clock. by 11 o'clock, 29 and notice how numbers just don't change that much today. we could get a high around 31 briefly at 2 o'clock but with those winds blowing and temperatures kind of settling on or about 30, it will feel like it's in the 20's
throughout the day. pretty uncomfortable out there and you'll want to bundle up. high afternoon temperatures, well in allentown 29, in cape may 35. everybody else somewhere in between. i will point out that these are afternoon highs even though the average or the official high of the day is that probably going to be maybe five or 6 degrees higher than these numbers. that's because between midnight and about two hours ago we were warmer than these numbers but i want to prepare you for what to expect the rest of the way dan that's about where you're going to be this afternoon. tomorrow similar today 32 degrees. we'll have increased clouds because of an area of low pressure which thankfully is staying off the coast. that means most of this precipitation stays off the coast. there's a possible flurry or maybe a little freezing drizzle down into southern delmarva or perhaps cape may county during the day but generally speaking it is dry and just cold. later on that high pressure center is going to come in and clear things outer and also help get us a little milder. your seven-day from accuweather brisk and cold today, a high of 31. tomorrow more clouds but similar overall with a high of 32. then on thursday afternoon it's still chilly but we improve to 37 and a better
afternoon on friday with that high of 40. that's right around average for this time of year so we're finally back up to around average on friday. for the weekend things look pretty good. sunny and milder on saturday, a high of 44. more clouds on sunday but staying dry. and a high all the way up to about 50. then a cold front gets through and for that martin luther king day we're back down to 39 for a high but frankly that's pretty much what you would expect this time of year and what we often get for our volunteer heavy afternoon and morning. a lot of people love to volunteer and they'll be able to do it in dry weather this year. >> thanks, david. >> thanks, david. >> 6:40 now. and the guy who went to great lengths to try and smuggle iphone 6's into china it's all new here. he thought strang them all over his body would help sneak away with the smartphones. >> clever guy. delta airlines flight was so delayed that by the time it took off there were only two passengers left to get on board. one man's story is next. karen. >> a lonely ride on the plane. that sounds pretty good. looking live in tacony.
