there in the show low area. here is a live web cam coming from the flagstaff area. you can see all of the snow on the ground. they have already picked up several inches of snowfall. here in phoenix, we were 13 degrees cooler than average with that cold front that moved through yesterday. we topped out today at 57 degrees. it would typically be 70 degrees this time of year, but temperatures are plummeting. take a look. we are 23 degrees now in gear. it is 27 right now in flagstaff. even temperatures in the n we have freeze warnings in effect for eastern maricopa county through gila county. stretching all the way toward tucson. we are talking temperatures in the 20s and the 30s that could impact your pipes, your pets, and your plants. here is a look at tonight across the valley. we will see many locations in the mid to upper 30s . tomorrow will be another below average day for us. 62 in phoenix. but we will see 50s in some parts o ever town.
we will stay in the clear for the next couple of days. expect sunshine through thursday. and another system moves in on friday. just a slight chance of rain through saturday. and then we clear up once again by sunday. as high temperatures approach the 70s . i think once we win one, we will be fine. and i think we will add them up at 9:00. and i think you have shot still. because we will be playing the teams that will be in the same spot we are in. we just have to win one. >> yeah, that one nice and a good start. i thought we would see a cardinals team yesterday that looked more like a team we expected to see this season. i thought perhaps the cardinals would be inspired and use head coach bruce arian's scary hospital stay last week as a rallying point to the season.
weaknesses and the falcons are weak through the air. their pass defense is next to last. 31 out of 32 teams who have given up 23 touchdown passes through ten games. coming in. now, only the winless cleveland browns have allowed more touchdown passes. oh yeah. and the falcons were also playing without their best corner. desmond truffaunt. maybe this could be the break- out game for the cardinals receiving core which has struggled outside fitzgerald. but no, that was not the case. they combined to catch a mere ten passes for 133 yards and zero touchdowns. the inability combined with costing mistakes. yes, spelled another cardinals defeat and a season without the playoffs. now, for the eternal optimistic cardinal fans who are not giving up on the season or the playoffs, here is a
stands today. there are six teams ahead of the cardinals for the two wild card playoff spots with the giants and redskins currently holding up to the spots. the cardinals played the redskins at home on sunday. a victory over each. the only team the cardinals have a tie break over is tampa bay. straight ahead, we are talking asu football. an outlook at what went wrong on the sun devils
>> that's a complete outrage. >> i'm an asu alumni. can i say this? i have never been more ashamed and disappointed to call myself a sun devil than i was during and after that disgusting and embarrassing. you know the numbers. the wildcats rushing for a school record. 511 yards with three different players rushing for over 100 yards. the quarterback and a converted wide receiver. what is trouble sergeant time and again, the wildcats would rip off long touchdown runs without a single sun devil player laying a hand on them. it looked all the world to me like the asu defensive players didn't even try to make the tackle. they played without passion. heart, or desire.
outrage. maybe the defensive unit grew tired of being chewed on by the coaches and saying i quit. coach says sure looked that way to me. but for crying out loud players, where is your pride? give the max effort for your family, fans, teammate. the school. my goodness. again, i can get over the loss. i have experienced plenty of those before. but, it is the play or the lack of it that troubled and embarrassed me the most. caribe? >> all right, thank you very much coop. well, coming up next, we are video of the day. >> aled for us tonight, late information on the suspect of the bloody attack in ohio state university. was it an act of terror? and emotion here in havana as people wait to pay respects to fidel castro.
