"eyewitness news" actually in city hall courtyard today. that's where dozens showed up for the preview weekend at the christmas village. the village moved to city hall from its usual location of love park but will offer some of the same authentic german charm and shopping and food. it officially opens on november 24th. wow. >> one of might have favorite things around this time of year. >> it's so cool, isn't it. >> i love it so much. >> you need a coat though if you go at night. >> if it was opened at any point tonight. >> my gosh no kidding. they were people walking around in shorts today, myself included. now look where we are. >> yeah, freezing. >> talk about a difference. i mean these temperatures are crashing let alone just dropping i mean, okay, so let me put this into perspective
for you natasha. this is what we hit today. 72 degrees. >> wow. >> can you believe it? i mean overachievers much, right? 72 was our official high. the normal high 54. and the record high is 75. we didn't quite hit that but still this is well above the average to say the least for mid to late november. this is wait looks like right now. we go outside to blue mountain you're app couple counties offer to the north where it is already a little bit cooler. it's cold enough at blue mountain that i'm sure the ski resorts are loving this. they'll see a modest accumulation on the slopes. snow covered pine trees here in the foreground just a lovely shot. many of you are not ready for this. unfortunately doesn't look like any more 70-degree days in the future but this will ease up over the course of time t as we look at storm scan3, this is a brunt of the precip. it's already starting to pull away from delaware, from those inland most suburbs here in southeastern pennsylvania.
so it really is winding down but the cold air really caught up to us so we ended up with more frozen precip than originally anticipated. there's a possibility a chester montgomery county bucks county you might have a little bit of light dusting on unpaved surfaces. that's going to be it out of this one guys. there's the beginnings of a new storm system already starting to move on shore here. that's going to dive south pull into the plains end eventually become a holiday travel issue for some of you if you plan to travel into the central plains or maybe you are flying out to o'hare something like that, that storm system could impact you. but it also affects us by turkey day itself. now, let's watch the the here and now with this latest s as this continues to pull away we'll see the back edge do the very same very -- just a sharp contrast here as the hours progress so we're going to be winding down with the precip relatively shortly here. come the early morning hours of tomorrow there's going to be wrap around moisture that rotates on the backside of the
storm. there will likely be a snow shower to report around the i80 corridor and poconos in general. the rest of us it's just more clouds than anything. you'll probably see sun mix in as well but overall the wind is the legacy with that. we'll talk more about that in a seconds. quickly looking at future snow amounts you'll have to go pretty far north to find anything that's worthy of a snowball or snowman but around i80 again you could pick up an inch or two. i wouldn't be shocked by that but you'll have to go far north if you want any more accumulation than that. this legacy with this fronts wind and chill. we have already seen wind gusts flirting with 50 miles per hour around the region. the whole region is in a wind advisory and this goes through tomorrow night at midnight. so, a long span of time needs to elapse before we're out of the woods with this. in the meantime you have gusts in the 20's, it could be higher than that any time tomorrow so please keep that in mind and marathon runners, hats off to you. you're going to be dealing tomorrow morning with wind chill values into the 20's at best. so, especially if you're going
out to cheer the runners on and you're just standing there make sure you bundle up adequately please. it's going to be a brutally cold day just for perception sake. next couple days we brighten things up. we'll see the wind taper off through the day tomorrow t-, rather monday. tuesday and wednesday are all clear locally but then we see that next system come along bring some showers on thanksgiving itself. >> oh, okay. >> a lot to cover. >> wow, all right. >> we've got our turkey simmering there. >> dancing turkey. >> he's happy. >> he's happy. we don't know why. >> one bird that's happy. we don't know about the eagles. >> we're hoping we'll have more happy birds tomorrow. eagles look to end their four game road losing streak one of the hardest places to play and temple extends their winning streak to five. joel embiid has sixers fans chanting trust the
riding a three game winning streak. power play steve mason in goal past tyler johnson. mason had no chance on the shot. one-nothing tam pennsylvania. second period flyers trailing. andre, pulot. flyers in a two goal deficit. third period jonathan duro there., skates in. three-nothing is the final. they removed the ice and put down the hard word for the sixers who were looking for the third straight home win against suns. big fella had it going on here in the first quarter knocked down the three. he scored 17 points in the quarter. sixers led by 13. third quarter embiid down low nice little baseline spin reverse layup. joel finished with a career high 26 points in just 20 minutes of action. later in the third sixers on
the break and nik stauskas throws it down and this little fan lovers it. sixers tied the franchise record with 17 3-pointers and beat the suns 120 to 105. the eagles are a six-point underdog to the seahawks tomorrow. seattle has won last four out of five against the birds. now, the question is what eagles team will be showing up for tomorrow. the one that is unbeaten at home giving up under 10 points a game or the squad that is one and four on the road. the seahawks 31 and five at home since 20's 12 and have the second best scoring did he first in the entire league. >> being able to win at home which is really important and now you need to be able to go get some games on the road. this is one of the hardest places to win and it's a great challenge for us as a team. it would be a big win for us. >> so i think we're right there. obviously we figured that out at home and what better way to kind of correct those mistakes
by going and winning in the toughest places in the league and getting a win. >> will the eagles hand the seahawks their first home loss of the cease john we hope so. we'll find out tomorrow at 4:25 right here on cbs3 and our coverage begins with toyota sunday kickoff at 11:30. to college football and penn state one of the hottest teams in the country they've won six in a. oh the eighth ranked nittany lions played rutgers the scarlet knights have not beaten penn state in almost three decades. james franklin locked arms with his team before they took to the field. rutgers punting blocked by johnson recovered by taylor. penn state took over deep in rutgers territory. flee plays over barclay fought through the rutgers defense and scored. nittany lions took a 16-nothing lead on barclay's 14 rushing td of the season. andre robinson goes into the end zone untouched for the score. penn state won their seventh game in a row 39-nothing the
