but keep in mind it was 70 degrees yesterday. so most of this will not stick. if it does it will stick to the car tops and grassy surfaces lehigh valley, pocono mountains looking at that change over as well in particular toward mount pocono. so mainly dry right now. south jersey sections of delaware. most of the rainfall north and west of i-95. mixing in changing to some of the wet snow. now through about midnight. here's 10:00 o'clock. some of the the rain moves into south jersey by 10, 11:00 o'clock but most of the snow again is going to be toward the lehigh valley and the pocono mountain with that light minor accumulation possible. this system is messing out of here rapidly so friday morning for the morning commute no problems. not dealing with any leftover showers or wet snow. sunshine to start on friday. dry, chilly a mixture of sun and clouds. we stay dry for saturday as well but once again temperatures well below where we should be for this time of year. so evening showers wet snowflakes north and west. from now through about midnight the main window for that snow
north and west the light coating is possible mainly in the pocono mountains and as we run the computer model you can see we're in the looking at snow accumulating in philadelphia, montgomery, bucks county maybe upper bucks, montgomery county might see a light coating on the grass. moving toward lehigh valley and the pocono mountain that's the best chance. 40 degrees right now but look at the wind chill. it feels like 33 degrees right now in center city. so bundle up if you're stepping outdoors and have the umbrellas handy, too. 39 degrees was the low this morning. 47 was the afternoon high. 10 degrees below where we should be for this time of year. 1902 it was 74 that was the record high for today's date. so we have 39 in wilmington. 38 in trenton. freezing right now in the pocono mountains. low 40s in millville as well as wildwood. compared to this same time yesterday, it's almost 20 degrees colder area wide and take a look at the chill across the nation. temperatures below freezing now
for many locations to our west. as far as those low temperatures tonight, 29 in the burbs. 34 in the city. tomorrow sun and clouds, staying chilly. 44 degrees. that's it for the high temperature. we'll go 48 on sunday. so a little warmer. but still below average. there could be some rain maybe some wet snow north and west sunday night. a cold rain on monday and then another shot of an arctic blast tuesday, wednesday high temperatures only, only in the 30s. >> feels like january. >> don't say that and smile. >> thank you scott. >> all right. >> smile. i'm smiling. >> it's okay. >> last year was the first year i was at lambeau field in green bay. so what do the eagles think who are playing there for the first time sunday? what makes connor barwin so athletic on the football field? there's other things beyond football much that's coming up in sports.
but this is a stadium that players want to play in. fans to see. many of the eagles are playing there for the first time at lambeau field in green bay. quarterback mark sanchez has never played at lambeau. eagles wide receiver jeremy maclin is playing his first game at lambeau as well. >> each game is a test, man much it's hard to win in this league. but we know we're going into a hostile environment. probably you know some weather conditions and then against arguably the best quarterback in the game right now. so we have to understand that and play our game. if we do that, i think the rest will take care of itself. >> the eagles defense may have to play their best game of the season for the eagles to win the packers have averaged over 37 points game in their last six. the quarterback is the best right now in the nfl. packers quarterback aaron oh verse was hurt last season didn't not play when the eagles wouldn't that game in green bay. now sunday rogers obviously will play. but the eagles have some players on defense that hope they can
change his success. eagles player on d having his best season is connor barwin. he's playing out of his mind. last week he had 3.5 sacks. chip kelly look at barwin and reasons why he is so athletic. >> i think connor has great feel for, um, just the game. i think he's a very, very intelligent player but he's also got some overlap. he's a great basketball player. he's got an understanding, real good sports mind. he understands how things will develop and how try to stay a step ahead of where it's to do. connor was there to pick them up. >> sunday morning fox 29 "game day live" starts at 11:00. i'll be there with jacket on followed by fox nfl sunday at noon 49ers, giants at 1:00 followed by the eagles and packers at 4:25. and mike trout out of millville, new jersey s the unanimous winner of the american league mvp award and well deserved. terrific player. >> he is. >> yes. >> thank you how war that.
