5:15 pm
county. we start to dry out, then we stay dry as we extend that forecast. take a look at the temperatures, areas that didn't see a lot of moisture today, temperatures also really picked up and warmer air shifting in. 47 where we are right now at cape may courthouse. earlier today we had a little more 50s on the board. 50 in woodbine still, though, mays landing 43 and atlantic city at 47 degrees. compare that to areas farther north. what a difference. 30 below freezing compared to the 50 we just looked at at the shore, 35 in reading and fleetwood sitting at 33 degrees for the current temperature. over the lehigh valley, about the same. bath here 29, and whitehall sitting at 32. right at freezing again. flakes still falling in these area. track that out, our hour by hour forecast. the model is showing us currently we sue see a few flake. but not anything that we're picking up on moving through.
5:16 pm
the potential will linger through the 6:00 hour, by seven:00, it's completely moving out. just some clouds starting to build in from the south. for wednesday we are mostly dry. we're also partly to mostly cloudy for your wednesday here. 2:30 in the afternoon a few sprinkles making it to the ground but otherwise we stay clear through the rest of your wednesday as well. let's talk temperatures for your wednesday. looking at highs that creep up a little higher than today. we're at 50 degrees, the forecast in fairmount. tackeno 48, way warmer than average this time of year. schwenksville at 47. reading at 45 and allentown even up to 44 degrees. we're showing the clouds mixing with peaks of as much. robbinsville, 47, egg harbor township 48, a few spots back to the 50s. newark at 52 degrees and dover at 48 for the forecast high
5:17 pm
temperature as we get into the afternoon tomorrow. plus season snow totals. comparing 2015/2016 season to this season so far. nearly 23 inches in philadelphia this time last year. currently 6 inches. obviously hasn't been quite as impressive even if it came with one storm. 32 inches in allentown. under 3 inches so far this year. in wilmington, almost 17 inches this year. just under 5 inches. and looking at atlantic city, interestingly enough, because of that last system that we had, looking at number 16 last year but up to 7. so numbers not too impressive, but we are talking snow chances on the extended ten-day on ten. so we have the roller coaster of temperatures. tomorrow 50, thursday down to 40, but windy as well. then drop mid30s, but take a look at this. we pick up next week to 57 and
5:18 pm
60 and there's those chances of snow/rain mix on sunday and again into your next work week. president trump will make a big announcement tonight. his choice for the supreme court. >> joining us with a closer look at this is mark murray, senior political editor for nbc news. thanks for being here again this afternoon. lots to talk about. we've been reporting, as far as the supreme court pick goes, down to two finalists. any thoughts on which way the president could go? >> well, our reporting is that there are two finalists and they are neil gorsuch of the tenth circuit court of appeals from the denver area, someone whose admirers and observers of his record can kind of see him as an antonin scalia 2.0. scalia's death has created this vacancy for the supreme court pick. the other finalist is thomas hardiman. he hails from the pittsburgh area. another person who seems to have a conservative record. i think republicans realize that either man would really kind of
5:19 pm
fit that conservative niche that they're hoping for to return the court back to a 5-4 conservative majority on many cases. >> so mark, whoever gets this spot will no doubt be involved in some pretty big cases. what kind of controversial topics could we see go before the court in the coming months? >> well, of course, some of the biggest ones having to do with labor rights, abortion, religion, so all the gamut of big, big rulings and issues, but it is worth noting again that what you would end up having a conservative judge on this court kind of creates the status quo. it goes back to where the court was when antonin scalia was on the court and when he was alive. democrats had a very big opportunity to reshape the court and have a 5-4 liberal majority, but barack obama, his pick, merrick garland, was blocked by senate republicans in the last year of obama's presidency and
5:20 pm
the winner ended up getting this pick in the presidential contest and donald trump won, now he's putting his pick on the 12th day of his presidency. >> what can we expect the democrats to do at this point, do you think? >> i think they're going to end up trying to block it as much as they can. of course, there is the filibuster still in the senate which would require a 60-vote threshold. but senate republicans who are in control of the senate can decide to eliminate the filibuster if they want, to go back to a simple majority. i think all indications are that donald trump's pick will get confirm unless something crazy ends up happening. that said, i do think there will be a fight. and one of the reasons that democrats will want to fight back is they feel like this supreme court pick was taken from them. >> all right, mark murray reporting for us. thank you. >> thank you. >> and for more on the candidates and the impact they could have on the court, be sure to join nbc nightly news with lester holt at 6:30, then you

"chicago fire" will not air tonight. the highest ranking member of the delaware national guard has now retired. at the beau biden national guard reserve center in new castle where members of the military old and new celebrated major general frank vavala. >> it's just hard to believe. i can't believe, number one, that it's been 50 years. i mean, that's just incredible to me. 18 years as general, it's so surreal. >> a lot of friend, family and colleagues were at today's event including delaware governor john kearney. from the win
