looking at the tire when they come in the side of the tire if there has been a problem for a while. >> reporter: tony decease air has been repairing cars and fixing flats for 30 years. he says if a flat isn't fixed properly. >> it will blow out, it can just explode. >> reporter: is there more than one way to fix a flat and that is part of the problem. cheaper way toys use a plug like this one, and showing from the outside in, the tire may not have have to come off the car but it is a quick fix that tony warns against. >> the tire has got to come off the rim. you have to look inside. >> reporter: if the plug does not maintain a strong enough seal air can escape, driving on low pressure can cause a tire to heat up, disintegrating the rubber inside, like in this tire, installing patches like these can fix a flat too. covering over the puncture from the inside. but it is still not ideal. in fact the national highway traffic safety administration, the rubber manufacturers a

association, and major tire makers say there is only one way to savely repair a tire. remove it from the rim, inspect it for damage and fix the puncture using a combination repair with both a plug and a patch. the as tony demonstrated for us. it is more time consuming, and more expensive, but. >> it is best thing to use. it is the proper way to do it. >> reporter: tony says most drivers don't ask how a flat is being repaired. >> most of the time they don't even want to know when, how or what you did. just get me back on the road. >> reporter: to properly repair a flat tire using a combination of plug and patch it takes about 45 in minutes and depending on the type of tire it can cost between 30 or $40. if the puncture is in the side wall you should in the the repair it, you need a new tire. reporting for three on your side, i'm jim donovan. and in wet, snowy weather you know how important tires

are. now we are looking at temperatures this morning, so much warmer then yesterday morning. our weather watchers are up early, we are so glad and they are weighing in with their advice and what dough we find? we have 35 degrees. this is john saying that the barometer may be falling but it is a a great day for the birds. i think he means one that fly and also the ones that play. we are looking at 44-degree temperature. this is what we are finding out with robin. it was a nice morning for taking her dog for a walk. i'm sure dog enjoyed it as much as she d lets take a look and see snow. this is snow for the the most part they have made up in jack frost big boulder. they have able to make a lot of it because it was so much colder they could turn snow guns on and they have a ski slope going but we are looking at temperatures above the freezing mark in every single lex this morning. it is 41 degrees in the poconos right now. we have 43 degrees through philadelphia even along the shore we're mild at 46 degrees down in wildwood. thirty-nine in millville.
8:48 am
so much warmer then yesterday and some cases some 20 degrees warmer then yesterday. why is that? well, we saw some clouds overnight and also we're starting to see winds coming from the south where it is mild. that is not the only thing coming up from the south. rain as well. we will find that rain around midnight tonight, overnight, first part of tomorrow morning so the morning rush could get wet and some puddles on the ground as well. so that rain and we will time out the rain amounts and exactly when and where coming up in just a second. otherwise just know today we are looking at quiet weather, sun and clouds and temperatures in the middle will 50's. warmer then yesterday but not as warm as it gets tomorrow at 70 degrees. maybe even, record tying or 71 is the old record it back in 1979. warm, wet day. oats specially a wet start to the day. that leaves the breeze kick nothing, cold front comes through, tuesday dries out, we will end up back down into the middle 50's and we await another system for wednesday.
8:49 am
lets get through this first one first and today looks great, looks great for the eagles game and we are watching the rain starting to come in here overnight, the yellow, orange, those are heavier amounts of rain. could somebody see a inch of rain out of this? it is possible. not everybody would see that much but it is possible. even some thunder cannot be ruled out. so if you are a along the shore area especially you could be listening to some thunder overnight and first part of tomorrow, it is that kind of a spring-like system with these temperatures coming up. 7:00 in the morning this computer model says heavy rain is gone but not all of the rain has gone. we will look for continuation of a couple of rain showers. by 2:00 in the afternoon we will start to brighten up up around here breeze is blowing, temperatures mild, you'll love it. last within day. enjoy what you can tomorrow. then tuesday it is fine, it is where we should be in the middle 50's and then wednesday we will cloud up and the second part of the day it looks as if we will be watching for a coastal system. it doesn't mean it is right at
8:50 am
the the coast. maybe it goes away. maybe it comes closer. closer it is less we like it. travel day on wednesday. many scenarios. every computer model has a different solution for this. just know it is wet weather on wednesday and maybe snow gets mixed in as well, again, i have been saying it, this morning and that is that we are not anticipating a significant accumulating snow. we are not anticipating that. new depending on the track of this, sets, et cetera, plans change but i think at this point we are looking at on rain, primarily with some wet snow mix nothing but we will continue to follow this, so you know how storms change and evolve iron maybe this thing will just leave, wouldn't that be nice and not bother anybody because everybody is traveling that daze. eagles game today, 52 degrees, perfect day to be out in a stadium and i'm sure people are getting ready to catch a tailgate right now 567895 degrees. partly sunny and mild. high temperature. nice day today. but tonight we will bring in the rain, particularly closer to midnight overnight, some pockets of heavier rain,
8:51 am
48 degrees overnight. these temperatures rising overnight and they will be rising, look at these temperatures on monday, 72 degrees. by tuesday, we are back down to where we should this be time of the the year in the middle 50's. by wednesday, clouds roll in we will watch to see what that low pressure system along the coast does, does it bring rain, snow get mixed in, or does it bypass us for the most part. we will continue to follow that, thursday, thanksgiving day at this point looks as if most of the daylight hours should be dry, we will continue to follow that too and friday, saturday look to be dry but chilly, you know, do you love watching the weather? well, you can be featured in our newscast by becoming an eyewitness weather watcher just like robin was. sign up at cbs, nicole. >> carol, thank you. 8:51. lets check on the roads with ann evans and a lot of activity in philadelphia. >> a lot of activity, nicole, this is schuylkill at spring
