tomorrow, and then we will get a warming front and here comes really warm temperatures by christmas eve. we are talking rain, late morning, early have afternoon, tomorrow, and that is it for tuesday. wednesday, we don't start with the rain until maybe noon, and into the early afternoon, into the evening, rush, and so wednesday, kind of a rainy day, after the morning is throw, and thursday, we could see a few showers as well and thursday we could break record highs for christmas eve. 44 degrees in philadelphia still cold to the north of us, allentown, pottstown, reading, all right around or below freezing but as we move further south you can see milder air encroaching the the shore, 48 degrees in wildwood right now. so average high is 43 degrees, and until saturday we had not even been close to that anytime during the month of december but saturday's high was 42. yesterday we got the to 43. that was an appropriate thely
cold december weekend if you like cold in december because it will be warm again. fifty-five today in the 60's tomorrow and wednesday, but by thursday, 71 degrees, the record high is 64. so we will smash that record on thursday, and then we will get cooler on chris mayday but still well above average with 64 degrees, mild, damp, milder then average a on saturday high of 58 and sunday still soggy with a high of 61. so our unusual december weather continues over the next several days, the holidays and beyond. we will look ahead to the traffic because bob kelly is off in the distance you see the burlington bristol bridge there. it went up, hard to tell in the dark at 5:40 a.m. try to avoid that area if you normally use that bridge. i-95 southbound approaching route 420 still looking all clear in that part of i-95 which gets congested in a couple of hours. checking travel times this

cardinals are so darn good and they have proved it again last night. teams chances, eagles that is, making the playoffs will come down to the last two games of the season. now the eagles had trouble putting points on the board last night in arizona, 40-17 was the final score. more importantly they had a hard time making any tackles as you can see right here. victory for cards make is it first time team has won 12 games in franchise history and in so doing, arizona locked down nfc west crown. chip kelly says defense and turnovers need to improve moving forward, do you think. >> against this team they have had one turn over in the last three games themselves. they had one penalty today, they had no turnovers against a really good team like that, a really good offensive team like that we cannot turn the football over and expect to come out on top. >> so on deck for philadelphia now is win or lose game next week against division leader washington, a saturday night game, day after christmas, after that they have to close the season out on the road, up
in new jersey, a against the giants, the the eagles have ended up winning division, they will have to win two games in a row. let's bring in big daddy graham now. big daddy, what happened. >> i cannot add anything. that was longest introduction, you ever gave me, chris,. >> i'll do x's and o the's you give the color. big daddy what did you think of that i said after that the eagles stink, times yours. you know what, the outcome, you are correct it doesn't effect eagles playoff chances, et cetera the but the way they played certainly does. philadelphia was starting to feel a little bit better about how eagles were playing they got that break with gronkowski, and win in new england. maybe they rode that into buffalo. they thought they would get a better performance yesterday and it looked like they were getting it up to the big
fourth and one at the end of the first half. there are some people questioning why do you even go for it. did not question that. i had in big problem with them going for it but if ever you use demarco murray that is where you are using him on a short yardage sit ways. the there is something going on with that story. why even bother suiting him up if he will get two carries, in the the that i'm a big fan but my god, every move will kelly made during the off season what has paid off, kiko alonzo forget he, he is one of the guys you referenced missing all of those tackles. maxwell did you see their tightened, fels he carried maxwell on his back for like 20-yard. every move that they made has not worked out. i don't think the the quarterback has work out. murray is just, wow it was a
bad day down there for sure. bad day. >> let's talk about how it plays out the next two weeks. saturday night day after christmas we have redskins at home. they are now top of the division, seven-seven. we are six-eight. as are the giant six-eight. if we beat redskins at home we have identical record and most teams at the that point would be seven-eight. and then you have the giants, they are taking on the vikings next week and then, of course, we finish with them as well. they could go in all different directions. >> what should eagles do, win both of these games but they have lost their home field advantage, it doesn't exist down there anymore. they are catching somewhat of a break. redskins have only won one game on the road the the entire season but if they look at their schedule on the road it is misleading. they have played some really tough teams on the road and barely lost to all of them. you're asking me what do i make of this game coming up on
