9:20 am
today is the day you stay indoors. 10 below right now in philadelphia. millville and lancaster. 9 degrees below for the feels like temperature in allentown and 9 degrees below zero for the feels like in trenton. so across the map everywhere in our neighborhood feeling below the zero line. and it's going to continue that way throughout today. few safety steps to take during the extreme cold, first and foremost, wearing at least three layers. loose layers, not tight ones. really a great option especially if middle layer can kind of be an insulating layer like a fleece, something like that. that's what i wore today. also stay dry. avoid sweating. if you are sweating, do not take off the coats you are wearing, go indoors and dry yourself out. take breaks, hydrate, stay eating throughout the day to keep your energy up. if you start to shiver, have memory loss or confusion, this could be the early signs of hypothermia so you need to be indoors and get your body to a warmer temperature. all of these big concerns because of the fact we've got
9:21 am
bitterly cold air just wrapped over the entire region. on top of the fact those northwest winds are still fairly strong. so you get those two together. and while it's a dry picture, it is a horribly cold one for us. look at the winds today. right around 15 to 20 miles per hour sustained, but gusts 30 to 35 miles per hour still are possible. that northwest flow we've been talking about this for a couple weeks now it pulls in cold air from the northwest. so as long as we have that flow, we're going to stick with these really rough conditions. look at the feels like temperature by 10:30 this morning. still around 5 to 10 degrees below zero. in the afternoon right around zero for the feels like in philly. that's as fwood as it gets today. 5 below in doylestown. and then we go into the evening and back down we go again. so right around 5 to 10 degrees below zero for the feels like on our saturday night. now, as we go into your sunday morning, the winds will die down but it is still going to be very cold. so look in the afternoon on your
9:22 am
sunday. these temperatures feeling like the single digits will actually be considered warmer pair e compared to the last several days, but the air itself is actually going to be at its coldest tomorrow morning. we may set some records. looks like in philly we're forecasting 1, that will beat the previous record of 4. trenton forecasting of 1 below, that will beat the previous record of 2. and these are actual temperatures we are forecasting right around zero degrees tomorrow morning. check out the hour by hour quickly as we go through your saturday. you'll see it stays dry. the same can be said for your sunday. a dry forecast. but that all changes on monday. then in the next half hour i'll show you what i'm talking about. >> all right. thank you, krystal. this morning we're seeing some scary video from north of the border. >> passengers onboard as their plane collides with another in toronto and a fire breaks out. what happened and how it all played out ahead in our next
9:23 am
half hour. >> also ahead in our next half hour, a car plows right through their home, now we're learning how one local couple survived this.
9:24 am
9:25 am
on new year's eve a florida man called 911 to report a drunk driver, himself. take a listen. >> i'm drunk, i don't know where i'm at. >> all right. what is it you're trying to report, sir? >> just drunk driving. >> where have you been all night? >> just driving around trying to get pulled over, actually. >> the dispatcher repeatedly asked michael lester to pull over and was eventually able to send police to him. he told officers he'd had several beers, had swallowed drugs and had only slept four hours in the previous four days. the officers arrested him and he's now charged with dui. now to a follow-up about a local uber driver who was
9:26 am
helping the homeless during this dangerously cold weather. earlier this week we introduced you to malinda boyer, she drives homeless people to shelters for free. representatives with uber philly told us they saw our story and they were thrilled that malinda wanted to make a difference. they wanted to get in on the effort, so uber philly donated $500 to two homeless shelters in malinda's name. 9:26 right now. the brutal temperatures are unbearable even for people like you and me we've been here our entire lives. >> yeah, but imagine if you've never experienced cold weather like this before. ahead, see what's being done to help evacuees here from storm ravaged puerto rico. >> and that cold air is still parked over our region. but we've got good news, the end is now in sight. we'll track when that dangerous cold finally exits the area and how much better temperatures look as we go into the next workweek.
9:27 am
9:28 am
el: broke, homeless,
9:29 am
selling my body to get high, locked up, a slave to heroin - that was my life. married, a homeowner, a professional, recovering and thriving - that's my life now. i got help. you can too. new years means a new day for those struggling with addiction. don't suffer. don't wait. choose help. call 844 reachnj or visit dangerous cold, our region is once again waking up in the grips of life-threatening temperatures, and tomorrow morning it could even be colder. >> heating help, this morning we're live in delaware county where a family in need will finally be warm thanks to the kindness of strangers. >> plus, a delivery driver recovering after being shot. why police say it's a miracle he wasn't hurt worse.
9:30 am
good morning and welcome back to "nbc10 news today." i'm dray clark. >> and i'm rosemary connors. it's 9:30 on this saturday. glad you're with us inside. a first alert is in effect until tomorrow because that big chill is still with us. let's take a live look outside over eighth and market streets in philadelphia. few people out there on the sidewalk, don't blame them. in these temperatures frostbite can set in quickly. another concern with this weather, frozen pipes. >> relief could be just a couple days away though. let's get more from meteorologist krystal klei and your most accurate neighborhood forecast. krystal. >> oh, yeah, we're counting down the hours for that relief, but we still have all of today and tomorrow morning the entire area under a first alert because of it through 11:00 a.m. tweaked it just a bit because it looks like the feels like temperatures will remain at zero or below through tomorrow morning. that bitter cold is why we have the first alert in play. already this morning we've had temperatures between 5 and 25 below zero for the feels like
9:31 am
temperatures. and as dray just mentioned frostbite easily can set in in 30 minutes or under when skin is exposed in this type of weather. take a look at the actual temperatures. actual temps are in the single digits. 8 in mt. holly, 9 wilmington. mt. pocono with 2 below zero. those are the actual temperatures. now compare to what it feels like outside, rough. 10 below zero in philly and vineland. 12 below in coatesville and 9 below in atlantic city. these temperatures are not going to rebound above the zero mark for feels like throughout the rest of today. so what you see now pretty much at you get the rest of your cu, well, take a look. 17-mile-per-hour winds right now in philly and coatesville. 13 in wilmington. 20 millville and 21-mile-per-hour winds in atlantic city. these gusts are what has helped make it feel so bitterly cold. good news is those start to die down tomorrow. we'll talk more about what you
9:32 am
can expect throughout the rest of your weekend and a big warmup coming up. >> all right. thank you, krystal. well, you probably will be cranking up the heat in your home today. >> yeah, a lot of people will be doing that. but unfortunately not everybody has that luxury. a heating company though is doing its part to help out. nbc10's randy gyllenhaal joins us live from delaware county where crews will be installing a new furnace today. tell us about it, randy. >> reporter: yeah, the guys from oliver heating just got here to anne hoskins house in delaware county. anne has had a tough couple years. it started in 2015 when you might remember a large summer storm came through in june. it took off a number of shingles, parts of her roof, damaged a lot of her house and her belongings. that was just the first part of a snowball effect. after that happened, about a year later she says she lost her furnace. and we're going to walk inside here and show you the inside of her house. her furnace stopped working. she had to duct tape the ducts in part of it as well. she says it was really only
9:33 am
heating just a part of her house. this is anne here you can see we're walking back to where they're doing the installation. it's really tough especially in this cold weather to have to live in those conditions, so the guys from oliver heating heard about their story and they came out today with a brand new furnace. they're spending a couple of hours this morning installing it. they're also doing some duct work as well. she says the upstairs of her house would be very hot, the downstairs extremely cold making it really difficult to live in. these guys are not just doing this one. they're going to be at a number of other homes today. we just caught up with anne, she says it's a blessing. >> i cried when i first learned that i was getting a new heater. i believe in karma. and what goes around comes around. and when you do good for others, goodness will fall back on you. i'm very grateful to the entire staff of oliver heating. >> reporter: and, you know, ann says she actually considered nominating somebody else that she knows who also needs a furnace. they convinced her she needs it
9:34 am
especially after all that storm damage and through. so in just about an hour or so she's going to have the heat up and running here, but the guys at oliver heating, they're not done yet. they have other locations to hit including one in west chester, as well as new castle, delaware, helping out families in need on what might become the coldest day in the last few decades. for now live in delaware county, randy gyllenhaal, nbc10 news. >> great for the bitter weather. thanks, randy. let's head to philadelphia where as many as 800 employees and city contractors are working to clear the snow from this week's winter storm. crews reported to work on wednesday. they have been on the clock since then. plows and salt trucks focusing on residential streets where the packed snow and frigid temperatures are still making conditions slick. well, it's really unusual, potential record breaking for our area, to be so cold for so many days in a row. >> yeah. more and more people are getting frostbite from not covering up, layering up when they head outside. it's caught a lot of people off guard. just in the past week the emergency room at thomas
9:35 am
jefferson university hospital has seen a jump in patients with cold-related illnesses. your hands, your feet, your nose they're the most common places where doctors see frostbite first. we spoke to a doctor at jefferson about what patients should do if they start to see their extremities turning red. >> at that time i want you to go inside and try to get warm. if things like that persist or you have a change in the color of your fingers where they start to turn more white or they become more painful, seek emergency care for a cold-related injury like that. >> quick tip, the doctor says if your hands are cold and they're numb, put them in warm water first so they heat up. hundreds of puerto rican evacuees living in the lehigh valley are now better suited for degree of cold weather they've never experienced before. and charity called make the road pa handed out winter weather gear to the evacuees in allentown yesterday. the group spent the past few weeks collecting donated coats, hats and gloves and scarves as well. those items are now in the hands

9:49 am
a 20-point lead at the half for philly. third quarter simmons another drive and two-handed finish. he had 19. sixers up by as many as 40. they cruise 114-78 and get back to .500 for the season. >> we're moving the ball, you know. coach doesn't have to call a lot of plays, we just play into the system we have been placed. past couple days been doing good so we have to keep on learning. >> how about the eagles? they've earned an extra week to prepare for their first playoff game since 2014, but they don't know who they're preparing for. that's the difference between the bye week during the season and the first round bye in the playoffs. so this week there's more about the birds looking in the mirror and getting some me time. >> that's the beauty of this bye week is we get a lot of great work in, but you can self-scout yourself because we don't know who we're playing. you try to utilize and practice
9:50 am
fundamental stuff. having a great high speed practice with pads on, going back watching old film, studying, just sort of doing what we can throughout these days and obviously rest. it's awesome. >> let's go to the college hardwood. university of pennsylvania was closed yesterday so last night's game postponed until this afternoon. a game you can see on nbc sports philadelphia plus. drexel on the court though hosting charleston. this one went to overtime tied at 76, dragons harper drives and dishes to lee. and, yeah, it falls. the corner three helps the dragons to the 87-82 win. lee with 22 points. that is your look at sports. i'm danny pommells from nbc sports philadelphia. enjoy your saturday. first alert meteorologist krystal klei here. let's talk about those feels like temps. i keep going back to this because i keep showing off these numbers have not budged. the winds are up, temperatures
9:51 am
are very low so you get a feels like temperature below zero. 10 below in philly and millville. 9 below in atlantic city and trenton. and 7 below for that feels like temperature in pottstown. this is why we issued a first alert. dangerously cold temperatures. you're outside for more than 30 minutes and frostbite easily can occur on any exposed skin. if you are going out, wrap up everything you possibly can before you step out the door. look at radar and satellite. this is a big wide view i'm showing you because the cold air pretty much digging minneapolis all the way down and across the northeast. now, you can see there's not a lot of action on the board. we've got mostly dry conditions, but the cold air is just holding tightly. so here are the temperatures this afternoon. 14 degrees for the forecast high in center city and in pottstown. coatestown at 15, allentown only 12 degrees. look at the numbers in blue. those are the feels like temperatures this afternoon. meaning it's the best we get today. zero vineland 1 below stone harbor, 1 below in smyrna with an actual temperature of 17
9:52 am
degrees. now, the one silver lining to this is it won't be sunny again. if you step outside, you'll already be able to tell pretty nice blue sky. that's not going to help with the temperatures warming. wind gusts is a big issue. that's what makes the windchill exist. when you have a strong wind, the warmth that your body emits kind of helps keep you warm. but if the winds are strong enough, it pushes that warmth away. so then your body perceives the air as colder than it actually is. gusts around 30, 35 miles per hour this afternoon. about 25-mile-per-hour gusts this evening. here's the good news, by tomorrow morning those winds really start to die down and they stay weak through the rest of tomorrow. the problem is when winds weaken, the temperature's able to drop even more so. so tomorrow morning the temperature itself will be colder. but the winds will be lighter. we'll still feel between 5 and 15 below zero, and look at these forecast low temperatures. eses. 1 in philly. 1 below in trenton. zero in coatesville.
9:53 am
these will likely set a record for cold on tomorrow's date. so here are the afternoon temperatures. a little bit warmer than the teens we'll see today. 22 in philly and in the suburbs. and then monday finally it looks like many of us will break the freezing mark. this will be the warmest that we will have seen in 13 days. the other problem comes monday evening as we could see a mix of rain, snow and some icing. once we get through that though, a much better ten-day forecast. we'll get to that ten day on 10 coming up.
9:54 am
