8:18 am
days, beach erosion and coastal flooding is main problem within the at least next 36 hours. we will go to storm scan three or no we will take a live look at margate here, same deal, sunshine mixed with some clouds. you can see a few clouds, leading to the coastal areas but further inland we are seeing more sunshine north and west of the city. the mostly sunny skies right now. a beautiful finish up in the poconos, and like i said, south jersey even near the shore we do stay dry, even, for the most part of the labor day maybe a stray shower gets in here but then overall not bad. steady rain off shore. still a concern, it is coastal flooding, with the storm system. so as times of high tide we will have to watch out for next high tide in the next hour or two, ten or 11:00 this morning. the coastal flooding potentially. tides really a concern will be later tonight and tomorrow morning. so 10:00 o'clock tonight, potential for major coastal flooding as wind kick up more and then 10:30 tomorrow morning and then even monday
8:19 am
night still we have to watch, that high tide as well work that storm lingering off the coast. comfortable temperatures 50's right now north and west, reading, allentown upper 50's, mid 60's, same deal at the shore right now, breeze coming from the north, not that strong, look at wind gusts outer banks north carolina only a 16. yesterday gusting over 40. closer to home. 15 miles an hour or less, rehoboth beach gusting to 20 but that will increase later on tonight. watch this forecast, and the wind. this afternoon yeah, it will be windy, nothing too terrible. as tonight the storm strengthens a little bit and perhaps moves west war. we will see stronger wind energy trying to move justin land so we could be gusting over 40 miles an hour tonight, close to 50. same deal on labor day, windy along the coastline but still dry and then, breezes pick up, either around the city and then finally on tuesday as the storm slowly moves back east we will relax the wind and things will get better.
8:20 am
we do have plans to hit the beach later this week just keep in mind strong rip currents continue, i would say at least through wednesday. so don't expect to go in the water anytime soon as ocean will be roughed up for a while. let's check out these surf heights and win direction. arrow shows win direction. we have north wind right now. off shore buoys at 8 feet. notice color key here. we are in the light brew here that is six to 10-foot waves, through labor day. so actually the waves increase more thomas that storm moves a little bit closer toward the coast and then on tuesday, waves back off a little bit, still choppy but wednesday, if you surf it will be a decent day wind go off shore, that cleans up the waves, ocean calms down a little bit and by even of the week you can seas sees subside and safer conditions for entering the ocean, probably by end of the week, in the upcoming weekend. storm itself spins off shore bringing in some clouds for labor day, possible shore, coastline, mostly dry. tuesday we are back to more sunshine. here's overall trend though we
8:21 am
will warm things up in the cool pocket of air over us right now that is keeping the storm from getting kicked out. but look at heat building through south and west. that gets in our region starting wednesday through at least friday and then even into the weekend we will be at the warm side. it will feel more like sum ever over next few days. today comfortable, breezy, partly sunny, 78 degrees. we will drop to 66 for city. mostly cloudy skies. here's that extended forecast, 80 tomorrow. we're dry, sun mixed with cloud 86 for the high on tuesday. wednesday up to 90 degrees. we will keep it in the the lower 90's through end of the week. next best chance for showers will be saturday. rahel, back to you. >> all right justin, thank you. 8:21. let check with ann evans in the cbs-3 traffic center. ann, it doesn't look like much traffic out there. >> not too bad at all, rahel, that is good news. looking at i-95 at walt whitman a lot of toll accounts are awake, waking up late, day weekend. walt whitman in the middle

8:30 am
every where. breezy, of course, down the shore but it looks like mostly staying dry through the rest of the holiday weekend. still dealing with hermine. it is forecasted to strengthen and track closer to the coastline over the next 24 hours. that just means increasing in wind, again, tonight and certainly for labor day. strong wind and coastal flooding still will be a problem with this cyst to tell even though we are seeing sunshine around. very quiet on storm scan three. anywhere from partly to mostly sunny skies, more sunshine north and west of the city and then those clouds toward the shore points. tropical storm warnings stay in effect for coastal new jersey and delaware. good reason with that storm close by. strong wind potentially gusting up to 50 miles an hour, overnight tonight, and for labor day, latest stats, wind that 65 miles an hour. notice track that tries to move to the north and west, before moving back north and east. over the next five days. that northwesterly jog over the next 24 hours justin
8:31 am
creases wind chances here at the shore and locks in that coastal flooding potential to at least hon night if not tuesday. wind not a problem right now. even today through the rest of the day. i think they will be good at the shore but later tonight they will pick up again. so still a big threat for coastal flooding and strong wind, heavy rain in the a problem. the mostly dry. beach erosion rip currents will remain in the forecast really after next several days. unsafe swimming conditions through much of the upcoming week. the coastal wind gusting to 35 later this afternoon but tonight could get near 50. same deal on monday. it will be a windy labor day but mainly dry. seventy-eight for philadelphia. lower 70's at the shore and in the poconos, if you like the heat, you'll like this forecast coming up over next few days we will talk about that in a few minutes, rahel, back to you. >> thanks, justin. tropical storm hermine may dampen peoples plans. governor christie declared a state of emergency for three coastal counties, ocean,
8:32 am
atlantic, cape may. cherri gregg from kyw news radio is live from atlantic city keeping an eye on conditions there, good morning, cherry. >> good morning, rahel. the temperatures have listen, over the past half an hour, so as i take off my sweat shirt. in theory, perfect day to be on the beach, but, not in the water. take a look at what we're dealing with here. i mean these tides are pretty strong, i was walking in the water, breaking this my new glushes here. when waves come in they are pretty powerful but take a look at video we have here for you. sunrise this morning, absolutely beautiful, it is a painting, early this morning, when we were here and folks were really enjoying the beach, they were walking along the boardwalk, taking it all in but that water, it was very powerful. you could see currents, surf very high, several feet in some cases. while this is perfect, weather for surfing this could be
8:33 am
very, very dangerous for inexperienced, swimmers, but the folks who have been here over past couple of days are really enjoying their labor day weekend. take a look at folks that said yesterday was worse but today was quite nice. >> you can tell there is a tropical storm headed this way. >> not anymore. yesterday was worse. >> yes. >> yes. >> reporter: how could you tell, yesterday were you out here what did it feel like. >> very windy, yeah, and waves were very high. >> reporter: now? >> it is gorgeous. >> reporter: while water is no laughing matter at this point as you can see over there the carnival is still moving, folks are still enjoying here. this is still a labor day weekend to be had. but, again, these rip currents could be very dangerous, and so even if you decide to just take a stroll on the beach, stay away from the water. it is unclear at this point whether or not they will have life guard out the here.
8:34 am
you are not supposed to swim without them but they removed all of the items along the beach like life guard stands, and they have put sandbags along the shed, to keep umbrellas, to keep those secured as tide rolls in at 10:00 this morning. the it is expect to be higher then normal but still a beautiful day. live from atlantic city, cherri gregg for kyw news radio for cbs-3 "eyewitness news". >> good advice there, be careful. our team coverage continues in avalon where "eyewitness news" reporter alexandria hoff is live there with the latest on conditions, hi there, alex. >> reporter: hey there rahel. governor chris christie did put a state of emergency into effect for our shore towns but i want to talk about what that means. it sound odd considering the beautiful scene behind me but all that means is it gives local officials greater authority to headache some changes to ordinances based off of safety. so for example that could mean if the beach just got too crazy with the tide coming in
8:35 am
that they could close them off. i don't see that happening today those. these waters have been rough all week with rip currents, and just lots of rocky waves, very strong, powerful waves. so what could happies that life guard could determine hey, maybe we are not going to have anybody swimming in the water today. it is warm, tempting but pretty dangerous. we're watching tides coming in. we have an hour an a half to go. the it is headaching its way up significantly. this is where these dunes come into play those dunes blocking that off, that water is almost reaching there at the this point and it has an hour and a half to go but it is not ocean water that i think that has many people concern it is back bay area, that tidal flooding, around 10:00 o'clock we will have that and then we will see another round later this evening. that is when the storm will reach its peak tonight and tomorrow morning. but for now a beautiful morning if you are down here, wanting to out for a stroll, take advantage while you can. reporting live from avalon
8:36 am
alexandria hoff for cbs-3 "eyewitness news". and delaware governor jack markell also declared a state of emergency for coastal and delaware bay communities in sussex county. warning residents and vacationers with powerful storm will bring significant rainfall and possibly some flooding. rehoboth beach, city officials closed the beach to foot traffic and swimming is also prohibited. and stay with "eyewitness news" as we keep track of hermine and when you are not near a tv we are always on line at cbs authorities in minnesota said they have found the body of a missing boy who caught national headlines 27 years ago. eleven year-old jacob wetterringly was abduct in st. joes, minnesota in 1989. his remains were found yesterday. no one has been arrested or charge in the abduction but police did name five three-year old danny himlick as a person of interest. he was charged with multiple counts of child pornography but was never charged in jacob's abduction. mourners gathered for funeral of the camden girl
