5:50 pm
38 in allentown. we have 44 right now wilmington. already into the 30s toward millville and take a look at the wind direction. still out of the south in sections of delaware and south jersey. but north and west, we have those winds coming out of the north and west and that is funnel link in some of that colder air. so watch how the temperatures will play out. we'll dip to 30 by 11:00 in philadelphia. into the 20s by tomorrow morning. feels like temperatures out the door tomorrow will be in the teens. so bundle up and take a look at high temperatures by 3:00 o'clock tomorrow afternoon. only 33 in allentown. 36 degrees, that will do it tomorrow in philadelphia. so the arctic blast is coming back. ultimate doppler right now not showing any snow or sleet for our area. dry conditions. but as we continue to monitor that lake effect snow, just to the south of buffalo, this is a loop over the last 12 hours. you can see that persistent fetch over lake erie continuing to provide that lake effect sn
5:51 pm
snow. some locations are closing in on seven and 8 feet of snow. so another additional one to 2 feet by friday night. so that will put some locations to historic and epic proportions with 8 feet of snow. can you imagine that? as we talk a little bit about what's happening tonight, we're watching that front. it's going to be moving through and that will bring the blustery conditions behind it as we watch high pressure move in slowly but surely but the wind direction tomorrow out of the north and that will pump in that that colder air from canada. so high temperatures will be stuck in the 30s. then as we move toward the upcoming weekend that same area of high pressure bringing us a cold air will bring a return throw so winds will come more out of the south and that will increase or temperatures especially by the second half of the weekend and as we move into early next week, the jet stream will move all the way to the north and we're talking about mild conditions moving in, 60s to near 70 degrees even for the philadelphia area.

5:53 pm
mistakes against green bay and that's what he has to work on. >> where did the incompletions come from? the second interception to maclin? i'm kind of throwing off my back foot. a desperation situation. did we really need it. we were in fourth down territory any way. we got to get this that are down but we're in fourth down territory even if i throw it in the stands or i take a sack we're coming back on fourth down trying to convert any way. >> all right. here's our lineup sunday. >> we'll wrap up the eagles and titans and week 12 of the nfl season on the fox 29 news at 10:00. if you live in buffalo, shame on you. i'm kidding. >> what? >> you better have lots of bread, milk and eggs in the house. that's what people get, that's why the supermarket sell them out during snowstorms most of the time. i guess they're making french tote. in buffalo they got 6 feet of snow and expected two more feet
