12:16 pm
time around we could see temperatures close to 60 degrees for next eagles game. that should be nice. twenty-two in allentown, millville 22. cape may and dover, checking in at 21 degrees. that is only half of the story here's the wind chills, minus five, as we head into the poconos. and, then 12 degrees in trenton. twelve in allentown. i guess i'm going here, eight in philadelphia, wilmington 12 millville 13. 12 degrees in atlantic city. 7 degrees in lancaster and reading. satellite and radar showing not much across the eastern half of the united states but next system we are pushing out of kansas, oklahoma and moving into missouri. that is next system that should produce light snow for us as we head into tuesday evening, and tuesday night. future tracker six for remainder of this afternoon, clear conditions, mostly sunny skies, nice looking day, blustery and cold. then we will fast forward into monday, increasing cloud, we will start off with sunshine
