11:37 am
flak on that as well. how prepared are you hearing is not only the cdc but in terms of them reaching out in other areas ahead of potentially someone coming in? >> always a problem at the outbreak of something like this. there are some medical experts who question how effective this effort to screen people at the border will be given that someone who wants to come to the u.s. and take advantage of the better medical care can reduce fiver by taking over-the-counter prescription medication and lie on the questionnaire. none theless, the government hopes they will get a better handle on people who may have been exposed and try to encourage those people to look after their own health and get to a hospital or a doctor if they start to get any of the symptoms. >> pete williams in d.c. we should point out, continuing coverage today throughout the day on nbc news. complete coverage this evening on "nbc nightly news" with brian

throughout the area already. so that's going to be pretty mild compared to the rest of the week. these are the sustained winds and the directions straight out of the west that's bringing in dry air and eventually the cool air. the strongest wind, 23 miles an hour in lancaster. the wind may keep up a little bit during the night or else these temperatures would go lower. 38 in mount pocono. 42 in allentown, 44 in reading, 48 in doylestown and norristown. temperatures get a little bit more uniform when we have winds. when if it would go calm, vineland would be colder and less of a contrast from the city to the suburbs as a result of the wind staying up. all you need is five miles an hour, and that has an influence. it's very dry except for a few clouds up in the poconos and dry back to the west. that's for sure. it's not going to stay that way. we have a front that's going to
11:51 am
set up nearby and some rain move right along it. we have issues of timing. some of the models bring the rain in by friday afternoon. others hold it off until friday night. then the question is whether this front goes down to the south and gives a break. a lot of the models do show that. from later on saturday into sunday morning, we may get a break. but the rain is still pretty close and could come back by later on sunday or sunday night. for today, it's mid 70s, sunny and windy, gusts up to 30 miles an hour. the seven-day forecast, cooler during the day tomorrow with sunshine. the clouds increase friday and the chance of rain as early as afternoon. likely at night and especially into saturday morning. there's a chance it may move out of here by saturday afternoon and just leave in some chances of late rain on sunday.
