reached 50 yet but there you go. >> right at 50 degrees. we are not going to go a lot higher. the wind is going to increase. it's not going to be feeling warmer this afternoon than it is right now. we have a lot of clouds in the philadelphia area, in the poconos, at the shore. there's a lot more clouds than sun at the moment. you see the camera shaking because the wind is that strong. the wind is also bringing in moisture from the great lakes. these are actually lake affect showers, a couple in chester county and new castle county and delaware and one or two in new jersey, a couple in the poconos and more up to the northwest. even lake affect snow in new york state and northwestern pennsylvania. we're not expecting snow here. but that gives you an idea of how cold the air mass is. it's 38 in mount pocono. they could see snow there. 48 in allentown, 49 in reading. and only into the mid 50s farther to the south.
so as we go through the afternoon, we are going to be finding a little more clouds than sun. the wind is going to be the big factor this afternoon. a couple of showers around for the next few hours. then things tend to dry out a little bit. but that wind is really going to be up there this afternoon, gusting over 30 miles an hour and finally diminishing tonight. we will see how cold it's going to get tonight where you live and an even colder air mass on the way in the seven-day in a few minutes. eight minutes after 11:00. accused trooper killer eric frein has a new court date. he will have his preliminary hearing december 9. that was originally set for next wednesday. frein was captured last week after alluding police for seven weeks. the execution of the man convicted of murdering a university of delaware student is on hold. a judge delayed the execution.

couple buy ya on pennsylvania avenue. but i think we can be more optimistic that where common ground exists, that democrats and republicans can move together on it. >> reporter: there's another area where there doesn't seem to be common ground, obamacare. republicans are intent on repealing it. tracie potts, nbc news, washington. who really killed osama bin lauden? a former navy seal is stepping forward. robert owe kneel identified himself yesterday as the man who killed bin laden. another member wrote a book that tells a different story. he says three commandos fired shots that hit bin laden. the navy says there will be consequences for both of them for leaking classified information. more than 600 u.s. soldiers believe they were exposed to chemical warfare during iraq invasion in 2003. that's from a report in "the new york times."

and a chilly weekend ahead, especially tomorrow morning. we have a mix of clouds and sun right now in and around the philadelphia area. and it's 51 degrees. a sustained wind of 20 miles an hour. so one degree warmer than it was this time yesterday. it doesn't necessarily feel it. it's 48 now in allentown and west chester, only 38 in mount pocono. we could see snow flurries in some of the higher elevations this afternoon. only 47 in glassboro in new jersey. we had places in the 60s yesterday. nothing like that today. 30 mile an hour wind gust in atlantic city. 37 in lancaster. that's a sign of things to come. the wind gusts are going to increase during the afternoon. some places could get up to 40 miles an hour for a wind gust. you can see the direction is out of the northwest bringing in the colder air. some of the stronger winds in the poconos. watch what happens as we go through the night tonight. the wind really diminishes.
by tomorrow morning, it's practically calm. and that's going to allow the temperature to really plunge across a good bit of the area. so the low temperatures tonight, only 26 in allentown, 28 in reading and quakertown and in doylestown. 29 in norristown and mount holly. 29 in vineland. isolated places could get colder than that. we are talking 20s and so early in november. 30 in glassboro, 34 in the city of philadelphia itself. these are isolated showers moving quickly during the past hour. they are on the light side. it's related to the cold air coming over the warm lakes. there's a lot of snow in parts of new york state. the lake affect areas, also new england mountains getting some snow. futurecast shows some of the showers moving out. we will tend to see less and less of them as we go through
the afternoon and into tonight. so we expect a dry weekend, but it is going to be a cold one. for monday night, it's going to be on the chilly side but not as cold as tonight or tomorrow night. not that much wind either. so really a pretty good weather condition considering the overall forecast. winds this afternoon, 15 to 25, gusts to 35 or higher and temperatures only in the low to mid 50s. the average high around 60. cold start tomorrow as you saw and not that warm in the afternoon either. a chilly day on sunday and then we start to warm up on monday. tuesday, into the 60 but then it all crashes down and by next thursday, even colder than it will be tonight. windier than it will be tonight. and that may last at least
