4:15 pm
three teams, three cars and that they were all coordinated. we also had confirmation there were reports of a cell phone found in a trash can outside of the bataclan with a text message about getting ready. we're going in. in terms of the raid here overnight what we did learn is they went into two different apartments. we know there were eight arrests, seven men and one woman. there are at least two dead. not everyone has been positively identified at this point. there was a belief that perhaps the man called the mastermind of these attacks, abdelhamid abaaoud, could be in that apartment. >> i must say that abaaoud and salah abdeslam are not part of the people -- are not part of the people in custody. >> reporter: there was also a police-controlled explosion while this press conference was on the air just behind us. we did confirm with the police that's exactly what it was. it was a bag that had been left and so as often happens in situations like this in the united states as well, that bag was blown up for security

4:17 pm
it took to pull this operation off, and for comparison sake it was about half a million dollars to pull off the 9/11 terror attacks, so relatively inexpensive operation doing as we now know devastating damage to so many lives. >> interesting perspective there. nbc 10's jim rosenfield in paris providing really great insight. jim, thank you very much. meanwhile, also today, authorities say they have identified all 129 people killed in friday's attacks. at least 350 more were injured, some of them critically so there's a chance that the death toll will rise if any of the wounded don't recover. so far only one american victim is confirmed dead. she's 1-year-old nohemi gonzalez, and she was a student at cal state university. the school says she was spending a semester abroad studying in paris. >> the american band that was on stage at the french concert hall where 89 people died is home safe tonight and speaking out. members of the eagles of death

4:20 pm
it's a southerly wind and so it does not cool down tonight. look at the temperatures in this computer model. it doesn't even go below 59. the average high for this time of year is 55 so by tomorrow morning when you get up it's going to be pretty mild and it will be mild all day, but definitely the rain gear in store. here's 8:00 a.m. and during the morning rush so at least from philadelphia westward we've got a steady rain. not necessarily all that heavy, and here we go later in the day and there may be another round of rain coming in later in the day or even into the evening hours that could become heavier. this stuff would be heavier and with some thunderstorms that's the one area that we're especially going to watch, and then it gets colder behind that. for the rest of the night tonight, well, we have the cloudy skies. we have a chance of some rain by sunrise, especially in the western suburbs. 57 for the low.
4:21 pm
so it's not very cold tonight at all. tomorrow it's a warm day, but it's rainy and a chance of a thunderstorm, especially in delaware and south jersey, especially late in the day and into the evening hours. then on friday it's windy and somewhat colder. it's still not all that cold. even saturday is not that cold at 56 degrees. sunday, yeah, that's when we get it. 46 degrees for the high, plus it's going to be kind of windy, so it will be a lot colder for this weekend's eagles game, and then chilly weather stays for the next couple of days after that. >> thank you. we'll go live to sky sports 10 and breaking news in montgomery county. there's been an explosion inside a home here in douglas township, and you can see right there haz-mat crews, police, they are on that scene. we're told it was a chemical explosion that did this here on rhodes avenue and that a man was burned. we're still working to find out how seriously. it's not clear yet what

cold air retreating, so thanksgiving day does not look especially cold. 57 degrees in philadelphia and 53 north and west and the rain coming in by sunrise during the day tomorrow and a rainy day. hours and hours of it and a chance of some thunderstorms and a warm day. and then it's cooling off on friday and still not that cold, not that cold saturday evening. sunday, that's when it's cold and then it's cold on monday, even colder monday, and it's cold on tuesday, but look at wednesday when we start warming up, and even though thanksgiving day is beyond the seven-day, it does look like generally dry weather and fairly mild for this time of the year. >> don't forget your umbrella tomorrow. >> yeah. >> good point, exactly. >> absolutely going to need it, no doubt. >> glenn, thank you. authorities say a man ripping off businesses at jersey show is an expert at art of confusion. we'll show you how he's pulling off his alleged scam.
