come in. not only about the ran we'll get first but then joaquin as well. >> looking a little bit more likely the storm may go into the carolinas but still at this point not a lock. still a couple of scenarios we have to iron out because so much going on in the atmosphere. but potentially impacts from joaquin would be second half of the weekend for the delaware valley until then quiet for now. but we are track something more rain headed our way fort end of the week. let's take you out side right now where we had the showers earlier this evening. last of the cold front that's moving through but now that front is going to stall offshore and bring more rain. so just overcast skies currently as you take a live look at center city. fall weather fans you'll like this forecast for the next few days. we're actually cool the temperatures down. past few days we were up in the 80s. and then now it's 65 at the airport in philadelphia. 53 in point every mount pock know. humidity levels starring to drop. look at that low in and mid 50s to the north and west that. cooler air continues to settle south and east for the neck several days. they're the front lined up offshore. you can see steadier rain
developing across the tidal water of virginia heading north this will impact our region later on thursday and certainly friday. so another round of potentially heavy rainfall. front stays offshore but now we got to deal with the stronger northeast wind, thursday, fry daring saturday, even into sunday watch out along the coast if you're headed to the shore. gust too winds will kick up the surf. potential for coastal flooding and beach erosion. periods of rain for friday it's windy even in the inn land spo spots. saturday i think showers really come to an end early in the morning so saturday afternoon may be okay. just cloudy and windy and cool. then we watch joaquin as the storm potentially tracks northwards towards the mid atlantic. coastal up packets because of the strong winds from the cold front could gust over 50 miles per hour. beach erosion rough surf not a good idea to try to swim in the ocean surf heights up around six to 10 feet. much of thursday at least the first half is dry. just some clouds. it will be breezy some steadier rain starts to move in late thursday night and periods of rain through the day on friday.
some of that could be heavy at advertisements. saturday looking a little bit letter better a lot of these showers start to break up by the early morning hours. here's the latest on joaquin. winds at 115 miles per hour. gusting to 140 so that's category three major hurricane still east of the bahamas moving southwest but eventually start to go lift back northward over the next 24 to 48 hours making landfall somewhere along the carolina coastline sunday night as category two storm. as it tracks inland the storm does dissipate. we would feel the effects if that is the exact track in the form of some more rainfall moving in for the second half of the weekend a lot of players. we have this dip in the jet stream upper level trough that's what's forecast to pick this storm up zen it northward. if the trough misses it the storm stays out to sea which is still possible but it look like the most likely scenario at this point would try to turn it towards the mid atlantic coastline. no matter what happens we're cooling with tropical moisture it will be rainy no matter what. how much rain now through saturday from the front? maybe an inch or two.
more to the south. but if we add the potential effects from joaquin we could be dealing with three, four, maybe 5-inches in some parts of the delaware valley. tonight mostly cloudy maybe a stray shower 58 for the low temperature. tomorrow clouds continue, breezy, rain arrives late. high of only 63 degrees. even cooler on friday with the wind and rain. 58. saturday getting some morning showers i think the afternoon is okay still windy and then of course sunday and monday whatever is left of joaquin dealing with more rain temperatures warm back into the 70s early neck week. >> this is going to be interesting. >> it will be fun. (laughter). >> oh yeah lots of fun. >> oh, boy. >> you have an eye on it. >> justin thank you. >> don is a watch the sports isn't we're talking about baseball. the fightings trying to live up to that nickname fighting against the nl east champion mets. the philadelphia union u.s. open cup hopes cups down to penalty and a philadelphia native john mccarthy. highlights
>> welcome back. start with baseball. mets with the division wrapped up phils just trying to keep away from 100 losses. nothing to play for, right. >> plenty of action in this one in the first daniel murphy goes deep. a three run shot off the alex asher. and the look on his face says it all. asher goes two-thirds of an inning. five end runs. but in the sixth phils come crawling back after two run single by fred did he galvis ties it at five. wild pitch brings him in. phillies add another run on wild pitch and win seven to five. >> shot at a 500 record on the line landover when the birds visit the redskins this sunday. the eagles back at the practice field today trying to work out the kinks. a lot of talk so far this season about that inconsistent offense. so is it poor quarterback play or bad hands by the receivers? >> combination of everything. i mean we've had some drops but there's been some times where guys are open and we didn't put
it on them tacony-palmyra appropriate times. combination of both. >> there's small mistake all over the place we've got to do a better job as offense being more consistent it takes 11 guys to be successful. unfortunately there just haven't been enough times we've all been doing the right thing. >> well, we'll see if the birds can get it right. kick off at 1:00 on sunday. high school football we have a winner for the friday football friend so game of the week the results are in. and with 52% of the vote it's cardinal o'hara at academy park. we will see you there live on friday. the philadelphia union hosting sporting kansas city in the us open cup final at ppl park. this one tied at 1:00 after regulation so we have extra time. we go to penalty kicks now. and all tied at six kansas city jordan with a chance to win it. he beats philadelphia native john mccarthy another heartbreaker for the union back to back seasons where they lose in this thing seven-six in
