11:01 am
possible major winter storm that comes toward the end of the week. the timing would be friday and into saturday and there is a potential of heavy snow and strong winds, so it's something you may want to start thinking about. you don't have to change plans at the moment but it's possible that some plans will have to be changed eventually. the storm's a long way away. it's still out in the pacific ocean, but a pretty intense storm. a lot of moisture with it. there's a lot of cold air ahead of that storm as you can see currently only 23 in philadelphia, 19 in pottstown. 13 in mt. pocono. that only tells part of the story because of the wind. it feels like it's 7 in philadelphia, in allentown 6 blow in mt. pocono. as we go through the afternoon, if anything, it's going to feel even colder. and by tonight those wind chills, the way it's going to feel on your exposed skin goes

11:20 am
officially named as the philadelphia eagles new head coach some time this week. peterson was an eagles quarterback in the '90s. online reports say he's expected to keep online running backs coach duce staley on as well as others. eagles owner jeffrey lurie fired chip kelly late last month. now your nbc 10 first alert weather with chief meteorologist glenn "hurricane" schwartz. >> we had our first measurable snow this season yesterday, and we've got something bigger coming in the seven-day period. a winter storm. and it looks like it's going to be affecting pretty much the whole area. some details remain to be seen. it's bitter cold now, cold plus wind. and that's going to last all the way into wednesday. this is not just a few hours of real cold. we've got sunshine out there now. but it's not warming things up very much. 23 degrees, 23-mile-per-hour
11:21 am
sustained wind making it feel like 7. 14 degrees colder than at this time yesterday. see what's going to happen here with the hourly forecast. look at this. as we go through the afternoon, even by 4:00, it's 24 but feeling like 11. by 8:00, 20 and feeling like 7 and by midnight feeling like 4. by day break could be feeling like around zero or close to zero. right now with 23 in philadelphia, it's 19 in pottstown and pretty close to the low 20s elsewhere. but we have strong gusty winds. we're seeing gusts right now up to 36 miles per hour in wilmington, 31 in philadelphia and, of course, that really adds to the chill and the chill is based on the average wind, the sustained wind, not the gusts. so it can feel colder than this for a minute or two. 6 below in mt. pocono.
11:22 am
single digits elsewhere. as we go through the afternoon, if anything, the wind chills go down. it's going to get colder as the day goes on like tomorrow morning. we're talking about some negative numbers in parts of the area. the rest of the region pretty close to zero. again, it's not gooding inggoip very much during the day tomorrow. we're dry early in the week but we're obviously focused on a storm that's going to be developing later in the week. and there it is. you can see it off of the pacific northwest coast. really impressive swirl already, but that's pretty far away. and until the storm gets over land, the computer models will not be quite as reliable as it will be when it does get over land. but here's the general idea. the storm develops down south, picks up plenty of moisture. we've got cold air to begin with. the general track takes it to the south of our area.
11:23 am
that creates the northeast wind, nor'easter. this would be the predicted track of the heavieaviest snow. right fou not putting numbers on there. too early for numbers, but giving it the scenario here. the computer model is pretty much agreeing that this is a significant major winter storm. the axis of the heaviest snow somewhere over our area. that's in the friday to saturday timeframe. bitter winds today. upper 20s for the highs. winds gusting to 40 miles per hour. and over the next several days, well, it's still pretty cold tomorrow with the wind. cold on wednesday, thursday, not quite as cold, and that sets us up for this winter storm friday and into saturday. especially starting friday afternoon the way it looks now. all right, thank you, glenn. details on the first baby born in the u.s. with the virus and

11:31 am
landing are doing that. looks like most of them are. a busy day on the ice as most people have the day off from work or school. chief meteorologist glenn "hurricane" schwartz doesn't have the day off. he's here with the forecast. if you are out there ice skating have a big parka on, right, glenn? >> absolutely. not just today. if you are going to be doing that tomorrow, it will be feeling just as cold if not colder than it feels right now. see a live camera at the wells fargo center shaking there? yeah, it's pretty windy. and the temperature isn't exactly balmy here. we have temperatures in the low 20s across much of the area. 19 degrees in pottstown. one of the cold spot, 13 in mt. pocono where it feels like it's 6 below zero the o the exposed skin and single digits across most of the rest of the area. and it's going to feel like single digits for much of the afternoon and overnight tonight the wind is going to continue as the temperature goes down.
11:32 am
so by early tomorrow morning we're going to be seeing some negative numbers. look at that, doylestown, 3 below zero the way it's gooding to feel at 5:00 a.m. and zero at northeast philly. the other issue is later in the week there's a possible major winter storm that could be affecting much of the area. the timing -- friday into saturday. right now it looks more like friday afternoon into saturday and there's a potential for heavy snow and some strong gusty winds. obviously it's nowhere near this part of the country. it's not even in the country yet. it's off shore in the pacific ocean, but that is a pretty impressive system. and that's what we're going to be watching for later in the week. more on the timing of that storm and the potential with the rest of the seven-day in just a few minutes. and keep tracking this wind

stocks slide in japan this morning. the nikkei stock average dipped to the lowiest level in a year before rebounding to close down just 1%. u.s. stocks took another dive on friday. u.s. markets are closed today for the martin luther king holiday. so far 2016 has been a shaky one on wall street. friday the dow closed down more than 390 points below the 1600 mark. while china cheaper oil appear to be the culprits, there are fears what it means for the rest of the year. professor of the american
11:46 am
college of financial services. thank you for being here. >> no question. >> time to panic or just take a deep breath and just slow down and wait it out? >> right, you said it exactly. this is not a time to panic. i am certainly advising my clients and anyone else to just be calm, you know, we're still just two weeks into the new year, although it's been a not very good two weeks. but january is not necessarily a predictor for the full year. so it's not time to run for the hills. >> but yet i've heard that january may not always be a predictor, i guess, for the year. >> right. >> but people i've heard say that it's sometimes a portend of what's to come in the year? >> well, what i've seen and heard, 60% of the time. so you know, it's not 100% map to what's going to happen throughout the year. there's still, again, a lot more of the year to happen and you
11:47 am

cash in the market or if you're looking to make short-term investments, looking to buy a home or if you're child is going to school in the fall, that money should not be invested. look at what changes you might need to make and just remain calm and certainly this could be a good time, if you're not already working with an adviser, to work with someone who can give you some advise and really hold your time at a time like this with such uncertainty. >> we thank you for the information. american college. >> my pleasure. the postal service is raising shipping prices on some services. starts sunday the prices of priority mail and priority mail express will go up. priority mail increases 9%, the faster priority mail express jumps about 14%. the new prices represent the first price increase in more than three years for either mail service. now your nbc 10 first alert weather with chief meteorologist glenn "hurricane" schwartz. the arctic air moved in

it's not there already. look at these wind gusts. 36 miles per hour in wilmington, 32 in lancaster. this is just within the past hour we'll see gusts as high as 40 miles per hour going on during the afternoon. and the feels-like temperature, the wind chills, that's based on the sustained wind, not the gusts. the gusts will make it feel even colder than this. 6 below in the poconos. as we go through the day and into the evening, it's going to just get colder. because the wind that usually dies down at night is not really going to die down much tonight. and so by tomorrow morning we're going to have some wind chills a little bit below zero. there's lancaster, 4 below. wilmington even at 1 below. and the rest of the area pretty close to zero. we do not warm up a whole lot during the afternoon. we have dry conditions right now, but we're watching the storm. it's not into the united states
