8:30 am
speech. while it's unclear if the racist threats initialed on oklahoma or another campus, they're investigating and have temporarily suspended one of its students based on information received so far both the fbi and the schools will continue their own investigation. lauren? >> thank you so much for that update. we'll continue to update you on the air and online. stay with us. on tuesday, americans made their voices heard at least some did. many americans didn't even participate in one of the most fundamental rights in our country, the rights of peace fully overthrow by voting. and bruce gordon. >> reporter: i'm bruce gordon, couldn't help but wonder as i watched 1,000 or so local demonstrators tying up traffic in the center city wednesday protesting the election of donald trump as our next president. how many were wearing those little i voted stickers they handed out at the polling places on election correct,
8:31 am
probably no more than about five hundred of them. you see, the protesters were mostly young people and the researcher said 18 to 29-year-olds turned out at about a 50% clip which means roughly half those demonstrators out there blasting donald trump and to a lesser degree hillary clinton never bothered to vote. to those folks i have a question, where have you been? and suggestion, check your calendar. the date to make your voice heard wasn't wednesday. it was tuesday. when it actually counted. those who now fear a trump administration will main mean the end of the world, you had all day tuesday to do something about it. many of these folks were no doubt ambivalent about clinton so they stayed home a symbolic gesture that almost always produces the opposite effect. exit polling suggest about eight % of millennial voters thoses
8:32 am
chose a third party candidate. one over the two candidates who actually had a chance to win, speaking of electoral postmortems, jim kenney demonstrate decided jim kenney decided to talk city workers off the metaphorical legend. >> this was a presidential election that did not go your way, no need for a post apocalyptic pep talk >> take your time to mourn and heal and let's get back to work, yes, let's. a couple of calendar suggestions for november 20-20, an election day, vote. the day after, accept the results. only in philly. scott williams, chilly out there. look prepared to run ten miles in this weather >> ten miles in the cold. temperatures are going to be above average for this time of year, topping out around 50.
8:33 am
running those steps of the art museum. live look outside of our studios, the ben franklin bridge. a lot of sunshine, temperatures recovering a bit after a low of at least now up to 39. still cold. visibility is good and winds right now about six miles per hour. high pressure prominent and dominate. giving us all the sunshine and cold air for today. by tomorrow, we'll seymour of a return flow and a nice rebound in those temps. 29 in the poconos, 34, pottstown, 37 in millville, but feels like 32 in millville when you factor in the wind. feels like the teens in the poconos mountains. so for today, by the afternoon, 50 degrees, as we move towards your sunday, high temperatures top out around 60, so great football weather. as the falcon comes into town. . as we move toward next week, temperatures right around average, upper 50's, 60 degrees, a disturbance could bring showers though monday night into your tuesday, we'll have to watch for that because we desperately, lauren, need that
8:34 am
rainfall. >> i know. it's not raining as much as it should be >> parts of the area five to almost ten inches below for the year. >> speaking of weather, the holiday season is on the way, then winter weather, what's in store for us in the winter ahead >> we've been working crunching the numbers. a whole lot tries to go into making that forecast to predict how much snow we're into what we're going to get. and we'll kick it off with sue serio >> when it comes to winter, our memories can play tricks on us. do you remember when our first measurable snow was last winter? >> early november. >> november i believe >> i think it wasn't until january. >> actually, our first measurable snowfall wasn't until january 17th of this year, and even then, all we got was half inch. >> remember, christmas? it was warm, not white. with highs in the 60's.
8:35 am
jack frost was nipping on someone else's nose. surely you remember the blizzard of 2016. january taiwan and 23rd. that one storm gave us 81% of the season's total. this season may be similar. at least to start. >> that's right sue when making the forecast, we analyzed the weather patterns and all of the data to help us predict how much snowfall our area might receive. now, last year, we saw an el nino pattern this year we're watching a building weak la nina pattern, a cooling of the pacific warrants. we'll alter the jet stream and with that pattern that will impact the flow of moisture, the temperatures and also the amount of snow. the la nina pattern means the jet stream will be most active over the great lakes as well as the northeast with more clipper like systems. now, skiers will likely love the forecast with more snow expected
8:36 am
in the mountains. but less in the big cities of philadelphia, baltimore and washington, dc. >> let's brick it down month-by-month, first by temperature, in december, temperatures will be around normal. january will be colder, and february as well. up to one degree above average each month. and then more warmth moves in in the month of march, expect temperatures to be up to one dray above the monthly average temperature. as far as snow? don't expect much if any in the month of december, we will ease into winter with mainly rain. that means only a slight chance of a white christmas again. >> january will bring more clipper systems and that will limit moisture but the month will end with greater than average snowfall. the normal is six and a half inches this is due to pattern change in late january to mid february were there will be a better chance of coastal storms with at least two storms bringing six to 12 inches of
8:37 am
snow or greater. there's still a chance of snow in march with some now sans storms, one to three inches are expected: the fox 29 weather authority is forecasting 22 to 30 inches of snow, that is above the annual average around 23. >> so it's inevitable. you know it's going to be coming. we're talking about up to 30 inches of snow in philadelphia. higher amounts north and west, lesser down the shore. looks like late january through mid february will be the most active. >> are you feeling tired this morning? it could be something simple keeping you from getting a good night sleep. the one item you may want to ban from your bedroom quickly we know it's important to keep a house clean, there may be one thing you're not doing in order to tidy up.

we're going to talk about cleaning. keeping a clean house is important but is it really more important than spending time with your children? that's the question we're asking. according to a new study, parent spend about three and a half hours of quality time with their kids every week. get thissings they spend about
8:41 am
four hours a day house and work. >> say what >> that's right. so 30 minutes more keeping the house clean. they wish they could spend their time with their kids. when you have kids, and they make messes, you got to clean it up. >> let me tell you something. i operate a heck of a lot better when my house is clean >> i do too. my mom, she and i are very different. she's here visiting and i told her i can't operate in clutter. it stresses my mind out. when there's things, i was, i can't think >> that's a big gap between quantity time with the kids versus how much time they spend on doing things around the house. maybe, i don't have kids but incorporate things to do together? multitask. >> exactly. >> do your chores >> i believe it's a long time, four hours a day on housework? i don't think i spent that much time on housework in a long time. >> when we talk about little
