approaching clipper will produce that chance for a dusting or a light coating of snow. the timing of that sunday night through monday morning. but these are the temperatures you're going to wake up to tomorrow morning when you factor in the little bit of a breeze plus the air temperature. it's going to feel like 28 in new york, 24 in newton and 28 in cherry hill tomorrow morning. considering the temperatures were in the 40s this morning, this is a big drop. it doesn't get any better in the afternoon on sunday. we're going to feel like we're at about the freezing mark during the afternoon on sunday. monday, that's when the bitter chill sets in. if it's a holiday, a day of service, maybe your service activity is outdoors. bundle up. single digit windchills in the morning on monday. overnight tonight 34. but you'll notice the uptick in the breeze. that's going to make it feel colder and only rebounding to a high of 58 tomorrow with a chance of flurries but no accumulating snow. here's the look at the seven-day
the temperatures stay in the 30s for the next several days. on monday a high temperature of only 30 plus it's going to turn windy. it will be bitter on monday and tuesday with the low temperatures in the teens and high temperatures only barely cracking the freezing mark. get ready for the next big chill. john is here with a look at sports. >> nfl playoffs rolling through. we'll take a look at what's a good matchup tonight that you'll see on nbc 4. you know henrik lundquist is good. great i would say. but what the king did today placed him in a place all to
