5:34 pm
forecast is between 29 to 33-inches of snow for the philadelphia area. while that's above the typical average of 21-inches for the philadelphia area, it's a little less than half of last year's record breaking 68-inches of snow. ♪ >> okay. last winter was relentless. are we in for that again with these just -- every five days? >> it was back to back to back. i think this year we'll have fewer systems but the systems that we have are going to dump more snow than what we saw last year. still less snow overall though. >> it evens out basically. what it is. >> you already planning where you'll go for warmer weather to golf. >> january i'm going to my am moo and february i got to make a trip and then march. by the time i kim back we should be good. >> all right. there's old man winter. you know what, more and more men are looking to bust those wrinkle. >> you can call it brotox. why so many guys are going under the needle and trying to roll back time,. all it will take is a short trip to see the largest

space on it is google. >> back to your fox 29 weather authority a whole lot to talk about stuff like legwarmers and earmuffs. do people still wear legwarmers? i don't know. log john's. >> whatever you into he had to stay warm that's what you need to do because it's going to see another cold night. stepping outdoors tonight temperatures well below where they should be. the high today only 33 degrees. look at the morning low. 20 and look at the record, 20. so we tied it today. that record was set back in 1936. as we look at temperatures right now, you can see it's 30 degrees current until atlantic city. we have 28 in wrightstown. 26 in allentown. so at or below freezing all right area wide across the area. factor in the wind how your body reacts how it actually feels, it feels like 19 in lancaster. 7 degrees what it feels like currently in the pocono mountains much as we take a look at the current winds, the wind direction it has shifted. winds are coming in out of the south so that will do a couple of things, of course, it's going
5:50 pm
to be cold tonight but won't be quite as cold and temperatures will be steady if not rise a little bit as we move into the evening and overnight. so not as blustery. not quiet as cold. but still right at about freezing still by 11:00 o'clock tonight. so bundle up if you're stepping outdoors. so as we take a look at the satellite and radar, dry and quiet for us. still dealing with some snow around parts of the lakes. but this little system will bring a brief warmup our way during the day tomorrow. temperatures will top out in the low 40s. but behind it as we move toward the latter part of the week into friday in particular, we're looking at some colder air. so tomorrow morning, it will be cold but not quiet as cold because winds will still be out of the south and southwest. but during the day tomorrow, that front will move through. and then behind that front we'll look at those winds picking up out of the north and west with blustery conditions and colder air high temperatures only friday will only be in the 30s before we warm up for the second part of the weekend. so not as cold as we move tour the upcoming weekend.
5:51 pm
some milder air will be headed in our direction. so that will bring us a little bit of relief before another chill just in time for thanksgiving. so for tonight, mid 20s in the suburb. low 30s in the city. so 10, 11 degrees warmer than it was last night across the area and then we're looking at temperatures tomorrow making it about 10 degrees warmer for the high temperature. 43 degrees. so forecast by the numbers on a scale of one to 10, tomorrow it's a six. not as cold but still chilly and not as blustery. the seven day forecast showing you the return of the cold air friday's high 36. low 40s on saturday but look at sunday. we're talking mid 50s, mid to upper 60s even by monday. tuesday back into the mid 50s and then colder air 40s returning for wednesday and into thursday for thanksgiving and right now the forecast at the linc not looking that bad. not even that cold either. >> nice. a big switch for you mr. howard eskin from lambeau. >> perfect. three more cold games this year.
5:52 pm
i've already marked them. >> that's my long range eagles forecast. >> perfect. >> all right. the eagles are coming off their worst loss under chip kelly. but the players and the coach say, that's behind them. now, interestingly listen to this last year the eagles had two teams score over 40 points in losses and the eagles won the next game both times. but one question that lingers each week is the production of lesean mccoy. now, mccoy in nine games has only two, 100-yard games. last year he had seven for the season. the expectations have been hire this year but in reality he's sixth in the league in rushing and second in total carries. not bad. but not the same. but neither is the offensive line. mccoy says he's part of a winning team and everything is fine going into the tennessee game on sunday. >> i think attitude has changed, um, you know, everybody was so down after the game which we should have been and the attitude today, very positive. you know, working hard and
5:53 pm
trying to trying to get ready for tennessee. that's all we can do. >> the numbers say he's having unlesean mccoy like season. last sunday was his third game in four week under 100 yards. but one thing he's not ready to do, call this season a learning experience. >> i'm just working, working hard. this year everything is -- that's happened as far as yardage and everything you got to earn it. i'm going to earn everything i get this year. um, it's hard. i know everybody about myself. nothing has changed in confidence, swagger. i don't think anything has changed. that will never change. >> but what has changed continuity on the offensive line much this union has been in flux all season. >> quite frankly the cohesion real until there and, you know, i think it was a good point that was brought up in our meeting room we don't feel like we've been as -- as energetic as -- we've been letting the mistakes
5:54 pm
and the stalled out run game dictate how we feel and dictate our mind sets rather than imposing our will on the defense which is what we did so well last year. >> an interesting cold look by lesean mccoy as well. the team in the nfc east that's imploding the washington redskin. they are done for the season. they're three and seven team and the players are pointing fingers and it started with the quarterback robert griffin iii on sunday. first of all he compared himself to tom brady and peyton manning which is a joke and throwing his teammates under the bus. he wasn't real chipper today being asked to respond to his coach jay gruden from monday. >> his basic performance just critiquing robert it was not even close to being good enough to what we expect from that quarterback position. >> do you need to make changes in how you go about things in order to correct some of his fundamental. >> jay wants me to play better. i want to play better. we're focused on san francisco. >> is there any thought to dialing it back and saying less and just not being in the center of it all?
5:55 pm
>> yeah, man, like i said we're focused on san francisco. >> how does a quarterback improve precision on his foot work and things like that. yeah, man, like i said focus on san francisco now. >> you know what i got good idea for him. he should focus on the off season a vacation. because they're done. how is that for focus? >> that's your long-term forecast for him. >> that's right. >> i gotta howard. >> work on his golf game. >> horrific crash in berks county. tractor trailer slams into inn loo of park cars. tonight two are dead. he we talked to a police officer who was already on the scene when it happened. >> and going in style. to fine the best public restroom in the country you don't have to go very far. the spot that flushed away the competition all new at 6:00. that's straight ahead.
