trenton sitting with a pair of sixes right now. as this high sits overhead, it's going to keep storms out of he here. it acts as a big protective bubble across the area but what it's also going to do as we head into sunday especially height moves offshore. it kicks up a south west flow. that pulls in warm moist air from the south and west and drives the temperatures up and drives the humidity up as well and with that high planned just offshore, we get into what's kind of the heat pump effect as all that heat and humidity just keeps pump ming in a little bit more each day. very similar to the bermuda high pattern we talk about and usually we get into this kind of pattern in mid july, late july, early august. we're going to be in that pattern as we start september. it will heat up well above average for the neck several days. 84 degrees is our average. we mid 85 for the high today. saturday we're in the upper 80s for tomorrow i should say as we head into the next half hour. saturday going to start to warm up. sunday 90. monday 90. tuesday into the 90's. probably around 91 degrees and
that means it could be yet another heat wave. it will make it the fifth one of the season. here's hat at this time on tropical storm erika. erika has lot of problems moving over piss pan yoel la you can see that dark red shading that tends to indicate heavy rain rainfall rates and risk of catastrophic flooding there so even this storm is weakening and even though it's expected to stay weak not strengthening to much beyond tropical storm per has as we get into the weekend here's a look at the model plots. a lot want to take it into the gulf of mexico but the latest track i showed you earl err yes has it hugging the coast and then making a land fall in the florida panhandle. we'll see if they tweak that over of the week and but rash less of erika tropical storm, tropical depression or anything else, it is going to produce the same impact and that is the threat forge flooding rain we're not talking about storm surge. we're not talking about wind. we're talking about all this rain in portions of south florida by early next week the entire tip of south florida
really could get over 3-inches of rain and the risk for some flooding. so again it doesn't matter what it's call. the impacts are what matters and it looks like rainstorm heavy rain and some flooding problems there. overnight, mainly clear, beautiful. tomorrow for us mostly sunny and warmer at 88 degrees. does not look like erika will have any direct impact on us. if it does it will be very very modified as we head into neck week. so as you can see no problems next week looking fantastic. 88 tomorrow. it's hot but at least it's dry. now we could use the rain but we got sunshine in the forecast pretty much day and temperatures averaging about 5 degrees above normal right through the end of next week. now you know get the updated forecast any time if you have the cbs philly weather app. check our live radar. get severe weather alerts and share your weather pictures with us. down the app now on i tunes and google play. >> enjoy the weekend everybody. nice great weather. >> time for friday night sports with lesley. >> how about aaron nola. the phillies send their ace
