not in concensus yet, the spaghetti plot that we look at so often, you can see it is starting to come together, where it stays off shore, heads up the coast, but there are still new outline ers, so i think still time for this to lock in and get little more solid. take live look at storm scan3, and you see that we have other problems, besides joaquin. we have stalled out front, that's what is bringing the rainy and windy wet near philadelphia right now, those light showers, that have been just in center city and certainly showers that have been along the shore all morning, taking live look here at the neighborhood network of rehoboth, that boardwalk is rain soaked, 59 degrees, and check out the wind there, 21 miles per hour. so that stalled out front was what we will be dealing with today, tomorrow, more rain and wind comes our way. by saturday looking at morning rain, temperatures just in the 60s, and then as we head toward sunday, that is when i think we all need to focus in on joaquin and what its impact will be, i'll talk more about that, we look at the different models, little more closely, come back in just a few minutes, back to you. >> of course keeping our eye
on all of the tracks, kyla just laid out for hurricane joaquin, could come close to the area. >> meanwhile, new jersey officials taking no chance this is time. rahel solomon live in trend to trenton where governor christie up gating the starred end state storm preparations, rahel, good afternoon. >> reporter: pat, erika, good afternoon. new jersey governor chris christie now issuing a state of emergency for the state, just telling us within the last 30 minute or so he his state agencies are preparing not just for hefty rain we may see this weekend, but also the possibility that hurricane joaquin could hit new jersey. but he says it is now time for the following count toyings start preparing, atlantic, cape may, cumberland, salem, he says it is time to start preparing, possibly buying some supplies, and just really thinking about how you and your family will handle the possibility of again the storms this weekend, but also, hurricane joaquin early next week. he says, in addition to his state agencies, again, the other counties, they should be
standing by tracking the path of hurricane joaquin, and seeing if it does in fact impact new jersey, how they will react, so, those four counties expected and urge to start preparing now, those other counties, you are asked to stand by and just wait and see how this thing turns out. meantime, he says, he knows that the memories are still very fresh for a loft folks in new jersey from super storm sandy, he says, it is top of mind for him too. but he has a message, to new jersey neighbors shall says he's prepared, the state's prepared, you should work to be prepared, but don't panic. >> will feel enormous amount of stress, over the possibility, that's something severe could happen to the state again. two things you night to know about that, one, there is nothing we can do to control it. worrying, stress being it, will not change the path of the storm. secondly, you need to know that the state is prepared to deal with whatever we need to
deal with, depending upon the path of the storm. >> governor christie informed us he will beheading to event to boston, will be planning to come back tonight, but after that he will be in the state of new jersey and traveling around the state through tuesday at least as far as evacuations he says it is too soon to issue evacuations and encourage it, but standing by and he will do that when it becomes necessary. and if it becomes necessary. for now reporting live in trenton, rahel solomon, cbs-3, "eyewitness news". >> rahel, thanks very much. and our team coverage now continues with new jersey reporter cleve bryan. >> he joins us now in ocean city where preparations are underway. cleve? >> they have to get ready for this nor'easter-like conditions, starting tomorrow afternoon, we pick this spot here, along the bay, in ocean sit, because it really shows you, the flood that can happen just from the high tide. we haven't even gotten any rain yet. so add in the five, 6 inches of rain, and this situation,
becomes much more serious, it is about perhaps a foot of water on the roadway here on walton street, back by the bay, in ocean city, and this is a pretty typical flooding pattern, when you have high tide. what's happening, a lot of wind has been going on for the past week hitting the shore, you have high tide cycle coming off that super moon, last weekend. and now you are going to add in lot of rain and nor'easter like conditions. they are bracing for that first 11:00 this morning, they had a meeting, a conference call, with the local emergency managers, with the county emergency management department, and they're pretty much getting on the same team, making people aware of evacuation possibilities, getting all of their as nets place, and mitigating any things they can do to casino of reduce the flooding in the street, cleaning out drains, things that far matter. so we just spoke with the ocean city emergency manager, just little while ago.
>> we're preparing first and for most for the heavy rained, wind, expecting over the next 24-48 hours, first concern with tidal flooding, throughout the island, we're making preparations nor right now. also, keeping an eye on the forecast for joaquin, which still seems to be little uncertain, so we'll see how that will impact us later in the weekend. >> so, i guess it could be worse. you have nor'easter-like conditions, then the possibility of hurricane, at least not happening together, the advice for people to have second homes at the shore, is to, if you can, today, if you have time to come down and secure things that may blow around, there will be strong winds tomorrow, is the expectation, so if you have patio furniture that needs to be moved, or awnings, things like that, also, if you have things in your head or the garage, that could get ruined by flood water move it to higher ground. cleve bryan, cbs-3, "eyewitness news". >> clever, thanks very much. for the latest on joaquin head

06 degrees out there, chilly, wind out of the northeast at 18 miles per hour, you bet you feel that when you walk out the door. and i'm happy to say that the light rain that was falling has slacked off a bit. that will helps. really is there anything more fun than walking out and having rain blowing sideways? not really, right? that's not good time at all. so, take a look at storm scan3, and you can see, this is where joaquin is right now down in the bahamas. this is the weather that's ahead of our stalled out front. so two different things happening right now. stall out front what we are dealing with today, tomorrow, into saturday. joaquin what we will deal with as we get into sunday, monday, possibly tuesday. this is the light rain, you can see, now some of it kind of going to the west, north of philadelphia, not bad, not seeing heavy showers out there. but certainly a long the shore seeing showers, too, and you're already under coastal flood advisory at the shore. so you can see here, they are under a warning, in places like atlantic city, ocean sit, we will be under watch as you move further inland including philadelphia as we get into this evening. those of you on the look-out for flooding, you got to keep
vigilant today. 18-mile per hour winds, that's what we're seeing right now in philadelphia, it is out of the northeast, you can see, everybody up in the teens, as we head through this noontime hour. so it is a little blustery out there. if we take a look at future weather, track this forward for you. show you how this works out. so our front is stalled out. low pressure system riding along, right in front of it, and this is friday 4:00 p.m. see very heavy showers coming through, our region, so that's when i think we could get the next hit of significant rainfall, we get into our saturday, early in the day, we've got rain, but then catch little bit after break on saturday afternoon. but not for long. because there it is, joaquin, is going to be on its heals. so, friday wind, rain, rain will be heavy at times, by saturday little morning rain, some wind, some cool temperatures, by sunday into monday, we're watching out for the effect of joaquin. all right, so let's talk about these different models, keep hearing about these models, one says there is the other one says that. two of them in disagreement right now. at odds with each other.
this is the gfs says this this kind of tracks along the coastline. and what that means is if it is kept along the coast, rain, wind, inland flooding, certainly, possible. that is one model. the other model it is at odds with is the european model. >> this one has been very stubbornly want to go take it out to sea, hasn't budgeted whole lot, we've gotten new data in, you can see it takes it out to sea. that would mean significantly less impact, still breezy but lessee rowings, and certainly less to worry about. the truth is probably somewhere inbetween. right now, though, this is where we stand. it is a category three hurricane in the bahamas, winds sustained at 125 miles per hour, expected to strengthen briefly to category four, and then move up the costes you can see, monday into tuesday, starting to lose strength, but still tropical storm, very close to our shore line communities, and yes, we are in that cone of certainty or uncertain turn at this depending how you look at it. what i can tell you we will get something from there is likely to be a loft winds and rain. in fact, our chances of getting some tropical storm
force winds in that 20 to 30% chance range specially along the coastline, and as you knee can cause power outages, and lot of big problems. so, we take a live look at storm scan3, this is where we're at today. this has nothing to do with joaquin, it will certainly give us some rain. today looking for hi, of just 63 degrees, breezy, light rain showers, overnight tonight low of 58. and look at your seven day forecast, not just because it has got a lot of rain in it, which it does, but also because, look at tomorrow's high temperature, are you eddie for this? 58 degrees is the high. now, look, today, 59 is the overnight low. wow. >> eighty what two days snag. >> yes, and a lot warmer than that even not too long ago. so, we've got a lot of weather on tap. key take away, everybody make sure they're staying on top of what's happening. so keep tuning in, checking in with us. >> thanks for helping us with that.
