>> philadelphia's fire commissioner spreading the word tonight about a new carbon monoxide alarm requirement. commissioner derek sawyer was in logan remind people about a law that took effect back in june. all apartment units and multi-familiar dwellings in pennsylvania are required to have a working co alarm within 15 feet of sleeping areas. carbon monoxide is colorless and odorless. without proper warning it can be deadly. newer co alarms contain nonremovable 10 year batteries. >> time for sports now the eagles started off strong. they just couldn't get it done though against the dolphins. here's jamie. >> how did that happen. >> i don't know. we thought a must win. >> we thought it was certainly winnable. >> it was . >> [laughter] you know how sometimes after the eagles losses you wake up and you feel better after a good night sleep. not this time. that loss yesterday was just bad. it was inexcusable really and now the birds must pick up the pieces. without their starting quarterback sam bradford dealing with a concussion as well as shoulder injury after
5:45 pm
taking this shot early in the third quarter. eagles tell us there is no timetable for his return. after his departure a 16 to 13 lead became a 20 to 19 loss. nothing went right. deflected connor barwin pass turned into a jarvis landry touchdown an chance to win the game on the 9-yard line second down an field goal is all they needed. mark sanchez was intercepted in the end zone. that's the fifth time that's happened to eagles quarterback this season. eagles blew an opportunity to beat an inteen eighty four opponents. all that momentum from last week in dallas all for naught. >> there's not any game changing or turning point in seasons or anything like that. every single week expresses itself differently in terms of who you're playing and what you get matched up in and some teams match up better than other teams with guys and it comes down consistency especially on the offensive side of the ball. we were so inconsistent which is uncharacteristic us
5:46 pm
especially in the last couple weeks. >> it's my job. there should be a seamless transition and i thought at times there were. at other times sure can we get a little more familiar, of course and is that only going get better with repetition and practice, of course. but the point was just get in and win the game and unfortunately that didn't happen. >> so as it stands the eagles sit at four and five a half game out of a really bad nfc east. the giants have a bye next week so amazingly the birds still have a chance to tie for first and try and clean up this mess that they've gotten themselves into. >> obviously we're not out of this thing. we got seven games left, a lot of football but you play anything like we played today we're not going to win any more games. >> it's fortunate that we're in a division where there is a lot of turmoil, there is a a lot of teams that are struggling. at the same time we just got to get this ship going in the right direction pick up and start with the buccaneers and get this thing going i know we can do it. we came out hot today. we just got to be able to finish. >> eventually it's going to happen eventually. the sixers are going to win a
5:47 pm
game. tonight against dirk nowitzki shooting 53 percent from the line i don't know. they've dropped 20 straight games. that would be enough to get anyone down but they seem upbeat. tonight they'll get robert covington back from that mcl sprain. last year's top 3-pointer shooter can't wait to lend a hand. >> been hard to sit on the side line and watch your guys fight hard and lose night in and night out. >> definitely has considering not being out there with him. we've been through a lot as far as being a young team and everything but we've done so much as a unit we stick together no matter what and coach has done a great job of keeping us together and we keep each other together. >> they have been playing really hard. >> i think you should go way covington hairdo. >> a mohawk. >> very cool. >> weekends kind of -- >> i'm not thinking you do that. a group of former flyers scored a goal off the ice today. paul holmgren danny briere

5:52 pm
temperatures or about halfway through the month of november now a little better than that and every day you see in red, which is the majority of the month is afternoon high temperatures above average. on the eighth it was right on par and then the only day so far this month with high temperatures below normal was just this past saturday when we were 51 degrees. so, you total this up and we're running about 7 degrees above normal for the month so far. still mild in allentown at 60, 64 in trenton, 63 in wilmington, 62 in dover. but you can see some numbers are falling back pretty quickly here once that sun sets. 54 in millville and right now lancaster coming in at 58 degrees. but for tonight, the average low 39 degrees in the city of philadelphia. we're going to be well above that at 45 degrees so we'll call it comfortable with a lot of stars up there and 36 degrees will be the low in the suburbs. we are watching a pretty powerful system in the nation's heartland. you have southerly moist winds coming in out of the gulf of
5:53 pm
mexico matching with low pressure now just east of denver and you got that cold air wrapping lined that system and that's creating tornado watches all the way from texas straight through kansas and parts of nebraska. also blizzard warnings with this system in and around denver and that low is going to head up into the northern plains an piece of it will come through here thankfully not in the severe side but bringing us some rain on thursday. but even prior to that we have a front that's going to swing through from the north and westly we call that a back door cold front 'cause it comes in from the opposite direction. that systems typically move in our region so 63 out of 56 degrees with that north-northeasterly wind tomorrow seven to 14 miles an hour but still a lot of sunshine and then high migrates away and it starts to turn the winds more southerly here on wednesday so it's a bit warmer at 61 but a lot of clouds ahead of a cold front that's going to slide through here on thursday. so, the exclusive accuweather 7-day forecast will show that dip tomorrow to 56 but still a lot of sun and then a lot of
5:54 pm
clouds on wednesday, 61 degrees and a soaking rain but very mild on thursday, 67 degrees and you can see we're on either side of about an inch across much of the area for thursday butter it's only a one-day hit because the sunshine is back here on friday as temperatures dip again to 50 degrees. a lot going on this weekend. we got the temple game, we have the rothman 8k, we have the philadelphia half and full marathon, begot the eagles, 54 a lot of clouds saturday and then very chilly sunday only 49 for a high and then partly sunny on monday, 52 degrees. so, a little closer to average that second half of the seven day, guys. >> okay. >> thank you adam. with cooler temperatures coming our way you can stay with 6abc.com/weather for the latest as rain approaches later in the week, too. check back often with storm tracker6 live radar and its street level forecasting. ♪
