because the winds are weaker this morning. most of them five to ten miles an hour. regardless some of the numbers have tied or broken records. take a look at where the lows are reading so. a couple numbers updated. this has just changed in the last couple of minutes. it's now showing trenton dropped to 2 below so far for the low which would just crush the previous record of 2. it shows atlantic city at 3 below. in wilmington 2 does break the record. and we have now tied in philadelphia. i'm going to confirm the numbers because they've updated but it looks like quite a few areas have broken records for cold and you can tell it is just rough. if you can stay indoors like the last couple of days, that's the best plan of action. look at radar and satellite. we have this nice wide view and for our area it's still a clear picture starting with sunshine this morning. and much of the day will be a mix of sun and scattered clouds.
look further to the west, way further, and you see we have scattered moisture in terms of snow and even some icing that is starting to mix. a system will come together and track our direction as we get into tomorrow. by tomorrow evening during the afternoon to evening commute we are looking at a chance of a rain/snow/ice mix. 5:00 this evening, look at the temperatures right around the teens to 20 degrees. then we get into tomorrow morning and yet again tomorrow morning it will be rough. temperatures around 10 to 15 degrees for morning lows. as we get to lunch time on your monday pack the winter gear. snow/ice mix approaches the north and west neighbors. by around 4:00 or 5:00 p.m. tallinder approach the 95 corridor. that will last through about 7:00, 8:00 in the evening. everything should move out of here by around 9:00 to 10:00 p.m.

both officially falling to below zero. 2 below in trenton. 3 below in atlantic city. you can in part thank atlantic city's low to the snow that helps keep a cold ground. wilmington broke the record for cold at 2 degrees today. the previous record was 3. let's talk about the first alert. here's the good news. while currently spots still feel around zero to 15 below zero, we are looking at improvement in temperatures. that's why the first alert ends at 11:00 a.m. when most areas should start to feel above zero. a few spots are already there, areas like trenton, northeast philly pottstown. winds have died down across the region. some like millville and atlantic city feeling 14 below. this is why the first alert remains in effect this morning.

that got so much attention some time ago. is it a distraction from the russia investigation? >> it's exactly that. it helps to create more fuzziness. you're particularly happy to see one of the two senators asking for this is senator lindsey graham, the republican of south carolina. throughout much of 2017 he had been a consistent critic he believed the president had a blind spot one of the senators sounding the alarm very early. does he have more doubts about the investigation than he used to have before? >> chuck todd, i have a feeling your conversation with michael wolff will be very interesting
