week. >> the storm is expected to make landfall tomorrow. they are expecting coastal flooding on florida's big ben, before the storm moves through georgia, and through the carolinas. omar villafranca, cbs news, clearwater, florida. >> trouble headed their way. >> yes, and there is a question mark that there is the possibility we may see a little bit more impact out of one of these. yes, so we will detail all of that, right now there is no guarantee, but there is, ya, i know, squinting your eyes at me. just a question mark right now. >> you're the messenger. >> yes, again, no guarantees right now, but i want to walk you through what's the latest computer models are showing us. just gave you a sense of what. we will be watching at least. for now let's back it up. bring you back to the here and now. over the last couple of hours, we've gun to see more activity bubble up on at least the north central portions of the radar here in pennsylvania, and also across up-state new york. this is the leading edge of the frontal boundery that does bring us our wet weather issues, and if you want to
even call them that, i would say early this evening, we could begin to see little bit bubble up on the area radar, time stamp notice, 6:00 p.m. so yes, possibly as early as the point where first picks with the phillies, could be little bit of activity to track, mainly going to wait until later tonight so 10:00, 11:00 tonight we'll have little more u m.p.h. on the radar to report to you. so check in with us on "eyewitness news" on the "cw philly" at 10:00. meanwhile, looking ahead to tomorrow morning, still lingering, showers, heavy pockets of rain, maybe thunderstorm. really the last gasp of the cold front, perhaps left over shower into the early afternoon, but generally speaking you see how the cloud cover starts to clear out, so we start to see not only the skies brighten up, but also the humidity levels dropping steadily. so today, definitely most steamy of the next several. looks lie dew point will continue to decline and really we end up with gorgeous weather, that is guaranteed for friday, saturday, and at this point sunday as well. now, let's take you back out to the tropics. there is a lot of activity as
we are approaching now what's technically the peak of atlantic hurricane season. gaston trying to work his way right now out of the little circle, strong category three hurricane, but hey it is moving away. this is not going to be an issue for any land areas, but it is already churning up our surf. meanwhile again see effort course of hours here, how tropical depression number eight continues to move out to sea, make that sort of right-hand turn, this still tropical depression, could still eventually develop itself into an actual named system. then you have also got tropical depression number nine, we heard in omar villafranca's package, multiple inches of rain to florida, but eventually make also another right hand turn. now, here is that question mark. as we look at this system, it regardless moving northeast. the question is what happens many days down the road? what we call spaghetti plot. multiple different computer models, take a look, see only one of two that bring it ever closer to our coastline.
now, this is all the way out to monday. still five full days away, but labor day, so we will keep very close watch on this. >> we continue to monitor that, but at this point the general trends, to keep it out to sea and more than anything our issue would be dangerous surf and rip current. so you need to play it extra save if your travels do take you to the shore anyway for the holiday weekend. shore is nice place to be, if it weren't for the stronger surf rip current issues, moderate rip countries being remains up and down every single shore town in our area. so that includes the delaware beaches, mostly sunny though and warm, certainly muggy the rest of the day mid 80s generally speaking with pretty decent uv index to go along with that, we mention the phillies, could be spotty shower, dotting the area radar, in time for first pitch. but i think generally the wet weather will hold off into the later innings, again, looks pretty scat nerd nature anyway. so, i think we're pretty much in the clear. phillies should play without any kind of major hit.
lingers showers left over, we had covered on thursday morning, by friday we are completely in the clear here for what promises to be overall a very, very nice holiday weekend, we'll stick with what pertains to the up coming monday and we'll let you know what happens. >> i'm not phased by that forecast. >> glad. >> i've been telling folks about this next story for years, could be receiving communication from the inhabitant of a solar system far away from our own. >> jim donovan things aliens could be trying to contract us. >> i believe it is true. >> experts say star 94 light years from earth is emitting a radio signal. russian astronomers say that solar system few billion years older than ours, think say the signals could be from extraterrestrials or it could be the product of some kind of earth bound interferance. >> wow. >> aliens, i'm telling you, they walk amongst us. >> they walk amongst us.
