>> bon jovi, summer wanted dead or alive. actually alive would be better. >> bon jovi, feeling like january, colder than -- well the pretty cold out here. all right. storm tracker 6. >> stop right there. >> that's right. we've got nothing showing on storm tracker which is nice. anything that didn't manage to dry out in the winds overnight might have frozen up on some sidewalks and side streets but i think most of your roads are in good shape because we did have enough drying before we went below freezing. as we take a look outside, we've got the platt bridge and it is really chilly out there this morning. and staying that way as we go through the afternoon and into the evening. temperature right now is 29 degrees. your winds are running out of the west-northwest at 23 miles per hour and that's giving you wind chills in the teens across a good portion of the region. satellite shows you how the cloud cover from overnight is clearing along with that rain from yesterday. and we are looking at plenty of sunshine overall today, but it is going to stay pretty uncomfortable. 28 degrees by 8 o'clock, 11 o'clock still below freezing. your high today at 2 o'clock is 33 and temperatures really
6:39 am
aren't changing that much, only a range of about 5 degrees and all the way it's going to feel like it's in the teens or maybe the low 20's briefly. so, definitely abound deller from start to finish. 30 is your high in allentown, 33 in philadelphia. little better down at the shore and the farther south you move through the region, upper 30's but in the no party with the strong winds. as we take a look at the wind chill, right now we're looking at wind chills in the teens on future tracker. as we go into the afternoon by noon we might be touching the 20's in terms of the wimp from about philadelphia south. but then it's going to drop again to the teens later on in the afternoon and evening. and obviously this is not comfortable conditions whether you're talking about now 3 o'clock or 6 o'clock tonight. as we take a look at tomorrow, temperatures tomorrow morning at 6 o'clock are going to be pretty low. in fact, we'll be down not too far from records. i don't know that we hit any records tomorrow but it is going to be very cold with those numbers in the 20's. then as we go up to noon again we're only looking at temperatures getting into the
6:40 am
low 30's so temperatures are going to be similar tomorrow. the change will be in the wind. at 6 o'clock winds are still a factor. we'll still have wimp in the teens but watch what happens to these numbers. by noon as soon as noon they're down to about 12 miles an hour in philadelphia sustained winds even less. these are the gusts we're looking at. the idea here is that today is very cold, very bitter and windy. tomorrow we get a similar temperature but it won't be quite as bad because the winds will sag a bit during the day. 33 is today's high, 33 tomorrow. and then 47 not quite as harsh on thursday. on friday, breezy and chilly, a high of 40 and then saturday sunny and chilly, 44. and then we get into sunday and clouds increase during the day but it's finally a little bit milder, 58 is the high. much better weather fuelingsy eagles fans for that home eagles contest and then 64 next monday. there will be rain but don't complain. because it's rain and not snow and 64 is good compared to now. >> agreed. >> thank you, david. it's 6:40. a state of emergency is in place in ferguson, missouri as
