rainy actually a lot like the weather we saw most days last week. warm front lifts northward as we head towards early wednesday morning and we should see some more sunshine coming back in on wednesday. so it will improve after one very gray day. 38 tonight, 32 in the suburbs mostly cloudy with again maybe some drizzle developing late. otherwise the mild temperatures that's thanks to the warm front should hit 50 degrees here in the city but with the showers, not like you're soaking up any warm sunshine out there. 50 degrees again on wednesday but it is dry and at least milder, too. and then we'll see it cool down as temperatures return to more seasonal values thursday 49 day. watching the weekend could see our next storm season could be a winter storm for some in the area. right now it looks like the best chance of snow showers on sund sunday. that being said, some models picking this straight out to sea but least a heads up here we are monday, six days out, still far out. a lot can and will change but we are looking at the chance for some snow maybe mixing with rain and that would be on sunday before clearing out on monday. >> all right. thank you, caitlin. >> sure. >> a lot of people feeling a lot
blue today. >> i'll tell was. they're blue, green, purple. every shade -- caitlin's red. >> red rage. >> red rage. the eagles have had their share of injuries. add another that may take this starter out for the rest of the season. and many point to the one player on defense that is a big reason for the loss. hear from bradley fle
>> monday morning quarterback sponsored by xfinity your home for the most live sports. >> it's bad enough the eagles blue that golden opportunity to get into the playoffs. now, i've been told that the eagles defensive lineman -- linebacker whatever you want to call him trent cole has a broken hand. still not certain whether he will play on saturday against the redskins. or the remaining two games. also a possibility i'm told that trent cole could have surgery and today chip kelly zednick foles still is not been cleared to come back from that fractured collarbone. and he will not play on saturday. i'm told he may not be ready for the last game of the regular season either. let's go to the linc. it started off so bad and you knew something was wrong. dallas cowboys planned this kick. they know they did. josh huff doesn't get up in ti time. brad smith who the coach blamed didn't pick up the ball. somebody has got to get that ball. it's a live ball and the cowboys scored. it may not have looked good but the players did come into the
game the right way. >> our effort i think was always there. you know, i don't think our team came up flat. i don't think our team didn't play with energy. we didn't he can cute, you know, and, um, if they didn't have effort, they didn't have energy we wouldn't have back to be up 24-21 and. it's about sustaining and it's about eliminating the mistakes. not putting yourselves in harms way. >> i think that ambulance is for the eagles. usually comes down to the quarterback play in many games and you can turn the ball over if you're the other team. mark sanchez has thrown too many interceptions and there have been too many times where he has had issues with accuracy. you have to hit open receivers. but he's taking responsibility. >> i'm better than that. i mean i can only be accountable for myself and i know all the guys feel the same way i do. you know, every missed assignment guys take ownership. nobody is hiding from anything.
there's no like, well, you know, he could have caught it and maybe if he would have, you kn know, dove further -- no. that's crap. no way. we got to take ownership of this thing and it starts with the quarterback. >> all right. then there was three touchdown catches for dez bryant. and the defensive back that's taking the heat that's brad the fletcher. >> that's my man. i got to make the play. >> talk about the challenges of being matched up against a receiver like this. >> just another receiver in the nfl who made plays today. i didn't play well enough for our team. >> best scenario for the eagles dallas loses to indy next week and eagles win the final two games and demarco murray is hurt for dallas much there's hope. >> we'll see. thanks, howard. >> we want to update you now oh and that manhunt in montgomery county. police still looking for 35-year-old bradley william stone. he killed six people during a rampage across montgomery county earlier today. another person was badly hurt. police say one of the victims
i have chickenpox. >> was angelina jolie contagious when this photo was taken? >> you can spread this for two days before you even know you have the disease. then, whoopi goldberg versus bill cosby's new supermodel accuser. >> he did not rape you. >> i don't think so, no. >> you're not sure? >> their icy exchange. and -- >> i'm one of the many hostages. >> 17-hour hostage nightmare. can it happen here? >> if you hear them coming in, hit the ground, stay low. plus the shocking chant from protesters. and oprah's message to the nation. >> always in peace, because you can't be heard unless you are.
