i mentioned, system moving from the west, strong cold front. cold enough in fact, there's snow on the back side of the system. you'll notice the clouds that will approach southeastern areas of the state even before that front gets here later on this afternoon. temperatures start off in the 30's, near 40 at the coast and a few upper 20's where we had the clear skies. some fog is issue, especially if you travel around the fog prone areas, if you head out, it's the concord christmas parade. pa initially, but i think beyond that, you're looking pretty good into the afternoon. the fog early this morning, i think by 8:8:30, that's not much of an issue and sunshine thereafter with temperatures running from 54 to 60 from north to south. we'll see the clouds start to approach southeastern areas at 2:00 or 3:00 this afternoon. out west this evening, the squeeze play after highs today in the 50's. there will be the chance of a shower overnight tonight, but the best chances tomorrow morning with the front moving in. area of light rain will move
6:45 am
colder air starts to seep in behind that so areas up in to rain, and may see wet snowflakes and that changes to wet snow up north. much colder air around for monday and tuesday with highs by then likely not out of the 30's and a good portion of the state. again, coming with the wind, which is going to knock the wind chills back into the teens and 20's, so one last mild day. cloud increase tonight. rain showers around tomorrow, which could change over to a little bit of western and northern areas. extended forecast shows the colder air around through a balance of next week. brightest looks to be the busy travel day on wednesday and then a weaker system with either rain or snow showers on thanksgiving day. let's head to news 9 sports. >> now, jason king and news 9 sports. >> hey, everyone, it's championship saturday for six high school football teams. let's preview the six championships games right now. the late game at wildcats
