>> all right, david, thank you. on the cbs3 health watch tonight the new 3d movie the walk is getting critical a claim but it's also making some people who see the film ill. the movie about the 1974 dare definitely tightrope walker at the world trade center uses state of the art 3d technology. but some complain the live like scenes are leading to vertigo and motion sickness. doctors say it's a battle of the senses between the eye and the ear causing the body to reacti reaction. >> feels like something is poisoned. so the reaction is gastrointestinal and reaction where you feel nauseous. you're dizzy. >> doesn't sound fun that's for sure. doctors recommend people sit as far away from the screen as possible. also you can hold your hand over one eye that can help the body reset during dizzying scenes. also, avoid big meals before you go see the film. that's probably good tip as we well. we have seen the devastation caused by hurricane joaquin just
last week we were sitting here talking about the possibility of that hurricane headed our way. there were a lot of model you were looking at. you and the rest of our meteorologists but one in particular really nailed it. >> one in particular nailed the storm. got right. two models we talk about when gfs or global forecast system and of course the european. as we call the euro. the american model showed hurricane joaquin heading for the east coast possibly even the injuries seashore but the euro had joaquin heading out to sea. and of course this path turn out to be correct. the euro also accurately predicted hurricane sandy's track three years. eric hurst says the euro seems to out perform other models when forecasting major storms. >> the european model is kind of tom brady of computer models. in it occasionally has a bad day and throws an interception but more often than not it wins and in the big games, like joaquin, if you want to call it the super bowl of weather, it nails the
forecast. now the euro of course isn't perfect. last january the euro predict add blizzard would dump 2 feet of snow. we got a little more than a dusting couple inches here and there. so it's not always right. but it's interesting that most models that had a completely different solution from the other ones would be treated as out liar with the european model just so good you have to give it a little bit of weight and in this case even though it was the first one and the only one to jump to sea band wagon it ended up being right very interesting stuff. storm scan3 is clear. no problem the clouds even clearing from the shore points. more showers for the carolinas an area that does not need it. you can see joaquin moving out to sea. i want to show you this water vapor loop called little a fire hose effect this is happening down in the carolinas over the past several days and you can see all that moisture just plowing into the carolinas there and here it is. doppler estimated rainfall as that plume of moisture just couldn't to do dump rain over south carolina.

cooler again on thursday pink pogging ponging from the low 70 toss mid 70s. a good place to be all things considered this week much here's the latest on hurricane joaquin. category one with winds at 85 miles an hour. gusts to 105. moving pretty quickly to the north and east in fact some remnants of this could even impact portions of europe by the weekend. possibly ireland or england so this is going to stay together as it moves tout sea. overnight mainly clear, cool down to 53 degrees. your tuesday forecast is mostly sunny and warmer at 72. the "eyewitness weather" seven day forecast pretty great fall stretch for the rest of the week. now friday is the day to watch. by friday evening a few showers will try to pop up maybe even a thunderstorm and then it cools down again over the weekend get some sunshine back late saturday. back to the 66 other than friday night pretty great dry stretch of weather on the way. >> dry sounds good. kate, thank you. >> don is here with look at sports. >> we're talking about the eagles surprise, surprise. the flyers cut bait with 25 million find out whose on their way out the door.

>> i want all of or guys running back, wide receive spot to want the football. i mean -- i don't think you want someone that says i don't want the ball more. i think, you know, what you're looking for, but again it's a team deal on the offensive side of the ball that we need everybody, everybody needs the ball more. we need more -- we need more than 51 snaps in game for us to be successful on the offensive side of the ball. >> the rest of the offense eagles finally through the ball deep. bradford meeted four passes for 176 yards and two touchdowns. one was a pass to riley cooper. chip says the opportunity was finally there. >> sam take wagon the defense gives us in those situations the defense gave us an opportunity to throw the ball over the top and when they took that we took advantage of. it's the first time we had chance to do that. >> you guys act like we don't want to throw the ball down field. i think we saw something that we could take advantage of this week and we tried a couple plays trying to get those posts this week. >> to the ice. money can't buy you a love and
it can't buy i was roster spot. andrew mcdonald had make 25 million over the next five years but won't be on the opening day roster on thursday. gm ron hex stole waived mcdonald to save cap space. >> a tough decision. he's an nhl player but we're in a jam here with a roster spot and the cap issue, and we also got to put our best team on the ice on thursday night. >> hextall went on to say the play of 2012 topic scott lawton was another reason mcdonned was waived. scott will be the third line center thursday again the lightning. phillies want larry bowa to stay around but he may be headed for south florida. marlins interviewed bowa today for their open managerial position. larry managed both the phillies and padres. he turns 70 in december. 70 years old may be the guy for the marlins down there in miami. >> i guess we'll see about that. don, thanks so much. we'll be right back.
