Officially it's 35 at the airport in Kenner with clear skies and calm winds that's just about right for frost especially drops on the degree to which generally will before sunrise -- could -- some people it now with frosty wind field. Here in the metro area clear and 28 at the National Weather Service office in Slidell when he Hammond when he and lose that Gonzales 29 home -- thirty degrees. Dip below freezing across most of the region this morning. Mr. right here in the immediate metro area. -- -- right here. -- -- -- -- -- -- Sports cubicle. It tells all about sports on Thursday morning -- -- like to call the -- before he's happy Friday -- the and you as well separated only by soundproof -- Almost completely that -- that the but if you scream loud enough like Mike here. -- I hear you intimate that. But that's good to know and if we ever get a tactic here maybe someone here does them treatment -- the anyway. The pelicans came up short and New Orleans Arena despite all in the -- for almost the entire game. Eric Gordon had 35 points to lead all scorers but as Houston's James Harden who came up big late. Circles that -- Ice bowl games. -- Houston. That shot completed Houston comeback after the pelicans are led by as many as seventeen. And the rockets blasted out of New Orleans with a 103 to 100 win. In addition to Gordon's 35 Anthony Davis also had 24 points but nor the pelican scored more than ten. The loss was the seventh in a row for the pelicans who continue to struggle without the services of Brian Anderson drew holiday. And Tyreke Evans. As a -- neighbor tiger fans as well.

Final score was 88 to 74. -- for an led the tigers from the bench with 23 points Marshall Henderson of the red led all scorers with 25. The Minnesota Vikings have decided on the ninth coach in team history Mike Zimmer. Zimmer spent -- the past five years as a defensive coordinator for the Bengals. And a five year -- Cincinnati -- -- -- -- top in defense four times in -- replaces Leslie Frazier. And New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady missed practice yesterday due to illness. Patriots are preparing for the AFC championship game against Denver Brady is not expected to miss that one I mark and organize your early look at sports -- How sick which you have to beat him miss the and it AFC championship game and a possible trip to the Super Bowl. I'm that you're missing limb since she had they even be got a fever of like a 103. And you know unless he's got in like a blinding headache where he can't the end in Herat. I can't imagine what it would take but it -- -- the team doctors are very very acutely. Treating his symptoms and trying to get him ready because. I don't remember ever hearing about major player missing a game due to. -- -- -- I mean I've seen play guys played through illness -- -- and get get and I v.s on the sideline and maybe turn around and vomiting or something and then get back in the game we've seen that when -- at times I don't think I've ever heard of a guy. Being too sick to play her unless it was definitely you seem to remember once Michael Jordan having four. Yeah and playing parents -- -- sixty some odd points cores and yet he had a ridiculous and I it was a good it was to elect a fever dream for everybody has a Ellis may keep the average person from going to war if you pay it does not wanna get out of bed and when you're playing for a trip to the Super Bowl. Hard to now go electric yet -- about these championship games the AFC with the patriots. Verses. The Denver Bryant. I'm gonna go with the patriots in the saloon just because I trust. Bill Belichick and trust Tom Brady and in the playoffs I just don't trust Peyton Manning. It is he's won once it. Who want one but. He's more often than not come up short in the playoffs he's got a losing post season. Over in the NFC and -- at the 49ers that -- I think it's going to be Seattle and they're just the best team in the field. Act and a lot of people were texting me yesterday they want Seattle. To me it makes it look a little better the -- at all. But other people that -- they don't want anyone else is -- join the club of Super Bowl winners -- the argument that never won it I mean if I'm gonna go with with my opinion I just think Jim -- laws is that this. Really knowing that the I couldn't I couldn't our our services go to Garrett for him -- -- they'll like him. And I I just -- on the sideline and and is and it's like the -- -- thought about -- wrote me the wrong way. It we like you -- them back in about five minutes or -- that I'd appreciate them. -- Will get -- Text messages frost and lots of places this morning at some logistics to me love my remote start -- we've had that conversation before. In cold days like this that time which had that kind of push that button on the road car starts -- little warm -- tennis you know the price has gone off with him before you know it. No such a lot but we will take your forecast all the way into the weekend in your text messages right after. -- like 6 good morning I'm gave Noah and if you missed a few minutes ago we shared many text messages about frost does since then we've got frost and abuse springs.

How -- a bump us up to 59 for an afternoon high end tonight dropping into the thirties and forties although we should stay above freezing on both sides of the late. Back up to 59 tomorrow with sunshine and Saturday looks sunny and cool high of 58 from the Eyewitness News forecast center and meteorologist -- -- out. This -- 35 at the airport and -- clear 28 in Slidell. Very little wins an amateur when -- across the area I think it is funny vocalist. Point nine Gonzales thirty in home get the patriots. At or below freezing and almost all southeast Louisiana and dropped another couple degrees for the so the word out of Washington is that when president Barack Obama unveils his. Alterations. To the NSA. Rules and regulations tomorrow he will not change the rules for NSA's ability. If you look at. Millions of phone records from American citizens. Or look at their emails there's sending them from the fifth -- Without letting them do but they're getting from. Some civil rights groups are calling this an atrocity and a missed opportunity by the president. Others expected the president to change the rules but it does look like is going to be manage any major changes mostly -- look at the latest on CBS.

Freezing out there this morning. Delegate mark and are expected to sports on this stage before. Friday at BID. Eighties. Some -- I AT view and I apparently were amongst the very lucky ones because people have been texting me from all over the area. About frost on the when I morning I just felt the conditions were there men and haven't they are men and they are out. Again everybody else as the united. That's a good thing. At a pales as far as I'm concerned not that everybody else and the business that I didn't yeah. I just don't like anything that set messes up my routine in the morning I don't hear anything that changes -- even -- sixty seconds bothers me is you know you can throw everything out of whack it everything's about that happened in the -- The exact same time in the exact same way every day. And even the slightest little deviation from the course now. An element like I gotta go back in and get that warm water or not warm my guess is water -- through the job. You know I know that -- maybe five minutes. And be more people a couple little of that remotes start there there -- in this morning texting just click whereabouts -- them in the cart does the warm in the -- is old ideas -- -- -- rush again.

Now announced it closed. Frost just about it. -- in my text he added avenue in my windshield I didn't need the likes of -- -- that it can be brought. But that people texted me from Canner in Metairie all the way up across the North Carolina Mississippi and down at home might just about everywhere that we -- that day. Out their thirties on the south sort twenties on the -- source I'm not surprised at all with light winds and clear skies. -- just right for frost development. Right so that's out there when will we warm up above freeze. You know we're gonna capped above freezing shore up here in the city -- book free were at 35 but -- get after you were up to about 59 today and mostly sunny here sixty -- -- at again tomorrow close to sixty -- with sunshine. That's an -- no precipitation in the forecast no let you know programs Sunday we're looking at dries dies of a few clouds by Sunday and mixing with that sunshine. But I actually -- nice Sunday ahead 66 that you like it just a little bit warmer than it then you're gonna look Sunday. Right and is this the coldest morning of the stress. -- we DC a couple of cold mornings for the next couple of days that's gonna be kind of you know where the coats in the morning and then maybe you don't need them all day into some layers kind of deal with by the afternoon we're going to be close to sixty. It is ego folks and like it and love it out once more. And I want to open up the what -- People five OK you ready for this as a woman says she just wanted to free up up fees. Read that pop -- Norwalk Connecticut police say 23 year old woman spotted by an officer using a rock to train smash open the glass door. Of a close pet shop. Told them she wanted to free up pop sees. -- year add up -- heard banging. While on patrol in at. The Norwalk strip mall Wednesday he spotted a woman running from the puppies of Westport store that caught up -- they're still at the rocket -- AMD says. Well and he said ma'am what you'd do away. He says it just want to set the poppies -- okay. No word on if she was intoxicated or Indian influence of anything else but apparently she gets help pad for the little dogs in there all by themselves and it -- kindness that you just let him with Fareed you know. -- -- did not have the arm strength the break the glass in -- questions failed in her ability to free poppy. But she did it charged with third degree criminal missed it. Posted a 500 dollar bond. And ordered to return to court and made it onto it different at different that the cause a champion. I think it adds that the that the puppies very. You can't do that down because if you do that you get indeed -- problem with people yeah I got a putter and there. And now that the poppies will call sent by themselves and all I mean how will -- sometimes looks more confident they have little puppy that's what it called puppy dog eyes they can have those. So we little you know. So that kind of like my youngest son has mastered the puppy that's why they have to say that the chief -- back to them and you take them home and and you end up with like sixteen -- yeah. They all looks okay. If that's ads from a -- is not ironic it -- -- Greg -- companies not supposed to do and I'm gonna try to yell automatic just a couple of new line. He's mastered the puppy dog I just and a duty to. That second tree snake kill our have a bit more of like fell under direct from the Eyewitness -- -- -- and I'm Dave -- at the early edition of WW golfers as -- get a favorite girl scout cookie. -- I love those tag -- will be back with sports after the size 48 on -- Friday's. Good morning I'm Dave -- at the early edition of WWL first is again we get lots text messages folks from north yourself -- a West Bank that there is frost out there. If you're now one of the folks who gets to park in a garage or under a carport. You may find some ice on your windshield this morning with temperatures. In the mid to upper twenties or low thirties across most of the region of course right in the city where is all the concrete and buildings and stuff it's 3539. At the Lakefront airport definitely Q&A warmer too. You know accurately determined that if you -- -- then -- short time. That -- say good morning and happy Friday to mark my -- And same to you thank you. -- I -- pretty good right now all of I just want to you would. Address the problem. Things look good almost the entire night for the pelicans. Go go -- Arthur Davis a little while -- that. That -- by eighty gave the held in 9046 lead in the fourth quarter. But the Houston Rockets storm back and stole one in the New Orleans Arena going ahead and James Harden jumper knocking off -- 103 to 100. The loss was seventh in a row for the -- that's one squandered a 35 point night. By Eric Gordon. Anthony Davis added 24 but no other pelican manage more than ten. Pelicans now three days trying to regroup before returning to action Saturday night at home against the Golden State Warriors. Likewise and it looked promising for LSU's hoops team on the -- and accurate against Ole miss but paid six cents to. -- -- -- -- The tigers in the rebels were tied 69 as time expired. But in overtime it was Ole miss all the way the rebels pulled away for 88 to 74 win countries for 123 points off the bench to lead LSU. And the Minnesota Vikings the -- Mike Zimmer to be the ninth head coach in franchise history cameras in the defensive coordinator in Cincinnati for the past five years. Leading the big Wednesday to a top ten finish in four of those statements for the seasons of replaces Leslie Frazier. I'm mark Bernard that your early look at sports night if. John Mark -- with the radio here and beat him well. And dom and how. I'm currently kitten a little frustrated. Thinking you know midway through -- third quarter man silicon goods -- get a decent lead everything's great poet. Over and over and over again and that's what now seven game losing streak seven game losing streak note. No illegals he knows it is safe with the pelicans in a bad way it's not like they keep coming back and winning -- they keep pulling ahead big and then they'd they'd they'd drop the drop would aptitude. That. You had yet to keep things these guys have to learn got to keep line through the end well yeah we note that. It's anything. Obvious to use that they continued terrorist and get the guys back off injuries that -- -- They got Ryan Anderson drew holiday and Tyreke Evans on the bench Anderson alone you lose in nineteen points a night. That's a big loss to try to make up and and he also stretches the defense he makes you guard the three point shot it opens up the lane for a lot of guys. Jrue Holiday you know this system -- up big times and polity at the -- because nobody can handle the rock like weekend. It's it's going to be a rough go of it because both those guys are out indefinitely. Again as we close NBA all star game here next month here in new world. What planet completely healed me on strike it well and keep. The pelicans than those. Had the injury might keep Anthony Davis off the balls are to be if they keep losing. He was having a great year in and still having a great year but you know people don't look at you when when you're on the losing side. Mark -- aren't here winner we'll keep them back with sports and about fifteen minutes here and -- -- him well him and that mine -- -- it the day before I game. Than today it's over you'll be 80% of the way you -- Pretty. So the word out of Washington is that president Barack Obama tomorrow will be announcing dozens. Of reforms to the National Security Agency based -- view of the privacy policies for American citizens and the techniques they used to protect us from terrorist attacks. But. It does not look. Like the president will announce any changes to the program. That allows the NSA to look at millions of americans' phone records who's calling who are getting calls from running through computer matrix that the thing maybe terrorists. Or looking -- emails who used to having them too and you're getting them from. But think that will continue. Should it. And the NSA says it's been the key to protecting us from terror attacks in tracking down terrorists and thwarting their effort by. The folks -- the American civil liberties unions say that it's ridiculous and I huge invasion of privacy. As in the president's squandering opportunity by not changing. State here and we'll -- for sure when he has proposed tomorrow right now to forecast. Your Thursday it's looking beautiful with some chilly Temps this morning but by the afternoon will be up to the fifties and look for some cool sunshine expected for today and tonight clear and cold 37 north of the lake and 41 on the South -- we should stay above freezing. Then tomorrow back up to 59 and mostly sunny Saturday looking cool as well what can I say more sunshine and more of the same highs of 58.
