82,000. what did she say? you already know. she said no. sad. pictures of the whole thing are making the rounds of social media. but iain you've got a couple words for the guy. i think it's tough to hear from him now. better in the long run because this clearly was not the relationship for him. >> not meant to be. he's going to find the right one later. >> he'll be thankful. exactly. >> this didn't work out. next time buy a ring. >> instead of the iphones. perhaps. >> iain is a little concerned the weather forecast is not working out. >> take look at that photo right there. that is an arctic haboob that moved through colorado creating dust. sharp temperature contrast. >> arctic haboob. i've never heard of it. haboobs for people you haven't heard of this term before. dust storms. >> there's arctic ones. that was blustery one. that same system will modify. it won't be as cold when it arrives but temperatures are going to be dropping. i mean today was 70 degrees. 40s are in that seven day forecast and it's going to stay in the 40s for awhile.
5:50 pm
once that colder air arrives. but take a look at the satellite and radar out ahead of that front. yeah, it feels like spring. behind it winter and winter doesn't begin until about six more weeks. so a late week chill especially arriving by friday. the upcoming weekend. high temperatures they will be stuck in the 40s. we could also see a wintry preview before all is said and done believe it or not but look at the high today. 70 degrees. we should top out in the upper 50s this time of year but look at the numbers. 65 in philadelphia. 65 in roanoke. 70 in charlotte behind that front those temperatures they're in the 30s for chicago. we have 24 in minneapolis. 15 degrees in north platt. single digits once you move into sections of south and north dakota. so as we watch the timing of this front, it continues to move in our direction. so overnight tonight after midnight, mostly cloudy a little bit of patchy fog and drizzle. and then as we move throughout the day tomorrow, out ahead of it, partly sunny to mostly cloudy, but still mild.
5:51 pm
tomorrow but in the afternoon and evening the temperatures they will drop. the wind is going to pick up and that colder air will certainly start to move in and as we -- you wake up on thursday it's going to be windy and blustery. thursday evening there could even be some snow flurries toward the pocono mountains. that's just how cold it's going to get in the days to come. before tonight mostly cloudy. we'll call it patchy fog. some drizzle but look at the low temperatures. 56 degrees in the city. 50 in the suburbs. typical high temperatures this time of year are in the upper 50s so well above average for night. then tomorrow 65 degrees early. in the day the front moves through and those winds are going to pick up out of the north and west ushering in, yes, that colder air. you can see high temperatures by thursday in the upper 40s. 44 degrees on friday with that cold blast and the up coming weekend high temperatures stay in the 40s. we'll have to watch the coast sunday night. there's a system that's going to be coming through.
5:52 pm
the cold air will be in place. so there could be evening flurries maybe snow showers. we'll keep you posted but the bottom line you can see tomorrow's high 65 degrees. after that, we are stuck in the 40s and it looks like this pattern will be locked in maybe for week or two. >> i wish you could just give me an extra day. i'm not done with the composting in my garden. i'm so behind. you have a comp day? >> no. i have a composting day can s what i need to have a composting day. >> hi, howard. >> you know maybe we can get everybody out there to help you with your garden. >> it's only 18 by 20 feet. very small. >> okay. my whole backyard. >> you better hurry. i know. >> eagles won another game last night but this one was so easy. so many areas that we can look at with the win against caroli carolina, and they are bad. the eagles 311th half the most in the first half this season for the eagles. got the most turnovers in any game this season. they had five. and it was obvious carolina quarterback cam newton is just
5:53 pm
brutal. not a good quarterback. eagles won 45-21 and it wasn't that close. there are players on this team that don't get or worry about numbers. lesean mccoy had 12 carries for only 19 yards. jeremy maclin had three catches last night. 18 his two previous games. yesterday besides mark sanchez it was a night for the rookie wide receiver jordan matthews. seven catches, brent celek had five catches for over 100 yards but the head coach made a good point today, that's the beauty of this team. >> i think it says a lot to the whole group and they understand that, you know it's amaze wagon can be accomplished when no one cares who gets the credit much it's a team involved and you're ultimately judged how well we perform as a team. this isn't fantasy league football or whatever. those are all periphery things we have nothing to do with. >> but the people plan about fantasy and the quarterback is the toast of the town. mark sanchez. one of his best numbers in a game as a starter. he through for 332 yards, no
5:54 pm
interceptions. that's the important thing. playing a game like that and winning puts the past two years without a start for sanchez in perspective. >> i think when you take a step back, you appreciate it so much and you miss it so much, and, you know, i just kept telling myself when i was out, you know, if i get a chance to get back out there, um, you know, i don't ever want to be out again until i retire. i want to keep playing. you just have so much respect for this whole thing and the preparation want goes into it and, um, i'm just happy to be in a system that's -- that we have here. >> all right. there were so many stars on defense last night. five turnovers spread things around it was also the first game this season that a cornerback for the eagles had an interception. nine games in. both cary williams and bradley fletcher had picks but connor barwin played out of his mind. 3.5 sacks. he was so good at spying and chasing down cam newton. and he came from everywhere.
5:55 pm
he played terrific all season. there's no question he's playing at a pro bowl level on this defense. >> i think i'm a better player than i was last year. but i think my numbers are bigger result of what we're doing as a group up front you know what i mean. i've had opportunities to get some of those numbers but it's more about what we're doing as a whole up front. >> quarterback is big part of the team. but everybody on the eagles is a big part of it. quarterbacks get coaches fire. say goodbye to the carolina coach at the end of this year who's a good guy. cam newton will get him fired. clearly. after last night. >> we're very thankful for that. >> all right. howard, thank you very much. straight ahead at 6:00 police say he dumped his estranged wife in the delaware river. tonight he's talking exclusive toll fox 29 about why he did it. >> and with a little more than two months before he takes off, the pennsylvania governor elect tom wolf is hard at work on his transition team.
