out this morning at 25. temperatures are going fall much lower than that night as the chill is already in the air. this is the core of that cold air we've been talking about for the past couple of days. over us now. we have 18 for the actual air temperature in mount pock know. 22 in allentown. it's 30 in philadelphia. temperatures have dropped a couple of degrees in the past hour. 33 in cape may and 26 in millville. but, again with winds coming out of the north it's the wind chills that you really have to focus on this evening and then again tomorrow as well. it feels like it's 21 in the city. nine mount pocono. 23 in wildwood. and those wind chills are going to continue to drop because our winds are coming out of the west right now we have a 12-mile mr. hour wind in the city. so the winds will calm down a bit this evening. but it's still going to factor in that feel like temperature that will be pretty harsh. so it's a clear and cold evening evening. bundle up tonight. and certainly tomorrow morning if you're headed out to the mummers parade because we are going to be looking at wind chills anywhere from 19 to 25.
closer to 19 when we start the parade and then 25 by the end. but that is very cold certainly. rain this weekend now temperatures start to warm up by friday. so we are looking at a new system coming in it's mainly rain but we could get little bit of a wintry mix off to our northwest. here's a look at ultimate doppler. clear skies, high pressure over us and the core of this cold air is now sitting over us. we have a system sitting out to the west in the desert southwest. that's where they are getting some snow and wintry mix in parts of las vegas and phoenix. this system will move over to us by the weekend. but temperatures will be too mild. right now it's looking like a mainly rain event. know worries about the rain tonight. we have 22 in the city for the overnight low. 15 in the suburbs. wind chills again are going to be in the teens and single digits. then tomorrow for the mummers parade it stays very cold. the winds will pick up and winds are going to be gusting during that parade 20 miles per hour. 38 degrees for the actual air

22 years old. don't expect a lot. he's more really no more than a pros spec at 37 years old bird could have three more years on his contract with options so the phillies had to send some money along. bird hit 25 homeruns but struck out close to 200 times last season. eagles made move in their front office today. the news release read, they have part ways with vice-president of player personnel tom gamble. but it's obvious he was fired which will lead to speculation of a power struggle in the front office but i believe chip kelly has to sign off on every move that goes on there. big upset today. temple to connecticut. tied in overtime. nice pass by temple in the dark uniforms. connecticut actually has a chance to win the game with the three. however he gets fouled with the three. and guess what the connecticut player does? he misses all three. has to miss the their. doesn't mack any difference. temple wins it 57-53. big win. >> to villanova to the pavilion. villanova leads from start to finish. ranked sickth in the country

it was malcolm jenkins who comes um with the pick. ♪ >> again he look, he look, looks, fires open it's intercept beside nate allen. nate allen with 12th inception of the season has just almost left this up for the eagles -- wrap us up for the eagles. >> where would they be without darrin sproles and mal couldn't jenkins. was new orleans when they traded these guys. it's just unbelievable. but without their special teams i don't know where they would have been. but i miss football. >> i do already. >> it is what it is. next year we'll be better. >> well, they may be better. >> happy new year. that does the for us here at 6:00. we'll see you back her at 10:00v a great night. april side edition is up next. we'll leave you with firework from penn's landingly we'll see you back here at 10:00.
