thrilled one on one at chop. he was miserable until martin walked through the doorway to his room. what exactly did they talk about? >> they talked about sports and luke's a big baseball fan so he knows nothing about baseball so he was asking do you have to hit the ball and we wrl like laughing because we're just so used to as americans everybody knows baseball. >> luke will be in the hospital for five weeks while his body heels and we all are sending him our well wishes. >> no doubt about that. lauren casey joining us now and hermine hopefully moving out of here. >> hermine slowly moving on. i am ready to get out of here, hermine. we are seeing some clouds move in along the coast and a couple of sprinkles courtesy of hermine but otherwise dealing with unsafe ocean conditions that will persist over the next
several days. you can check now a little bit of moisture from hermine starting to work its way on shore but really some sprinkle and light shower activity working its way in along the coast. a couple of rain drops coming along right now in toms river and beach haven as well due to hermine which is not too far offshore. definitely a close call with a powerful position. right now bringing some shower activity up into new england and we're still seeing breezier conditions along the coast right now. point pleasant beach, rehobeth beach, wind speeds across the area, a little bit of a breeze 8 miles per hour but nothing in comparison. this is hermine. you see those streamlines wrapping around the center of the system. windspeeds right now 18 miles per hour but earlier this afternoon winds gusting to 56
miles per hour in parts of southeastern massachusetts. and because of those strong wind speeds kicking up very large waves, off shower of our coast line waves at 8 feet and that is yielding rip currents and heavy surf so do keep that that in mind if you're going to be down the shore tomorrow. still a few showers in the forecast, far away from hermine, the poconos, beautiful sunshine, a great day for a hike, the high temperature at 80 degrees. future rainfall amounts showing us what's in store along the coast as we head into the day tomorrow. maybe even a shower sneaking its way into parts of south jersey otherwise rainfall amounts are going to be very light. maybe picking up about 0.1 inch in some areas at the jersey shore. temperatures pretty mild 78 degrees but we still have that nice north wind that we've had in place throughout much of the weekend so comfortable conditions but we are much more mild at this hour on the order
of 9 degrees from this time yesterday, up 14 degrees in millville and those temperatures still elevated in the city but we've cooled off, 70 degrees right now in wilmington overnight tonight down to 67 degrees. still a nice night, great sleeping weather tomorrow not looking too bad. 87 degrees, under mostly sunny sky, breezy conditions as well. so we stay comfortable tomorrow, humidity starts to creep up wednesday and by thursday our dew points climb up to that oppressive category once again so we are getting steamy, summer is not done with us yet. up to 93 degrees on thursday, that will be about 12 degrees above our average. we keep around the low 90s into friday. best chance of storms will come with a cold front late day on saturday but that will clear us out just in time for the eagles home opener on sunday. sunshine, low humidity and 84. not bad for the birds. >> and a "w." let's get that win.
is that what we're going to call it, the wentz wagon? >> i like sunday is wentzday. >> we'll find something. but, yes. the carson wentz era will start sunday against the browns. the move will come after sam bradford was traded to minnesota on saturday. the number two pick was on the field for only 39 plays in the first preseason game. he is a hard worker who won over his teammates who say yes he is ready to start. >> throughout the spring and summer he showed a lot of good things. guys are confident with them.
i think the play book expands a little bit because he's more of an athlete than some of the quarterbacks we've had in the past so i think in the long run it's going to be a good thing. >> he didn't get selected number 2 for no reason. we're excited to see what he can do as well. >> the odd man out in the quarterback swees stakes, chase daniel. today chase played the role of the good soldier when asked about being passed over for that number one job. >> it's unfortunate for me personally, but that's not what it's about. it's not about one person, it's about the team. it's about what gives us the best shot to win moving forward and obviously some guys think that's car soun and that's fine and we're going to get behind that and role with it. >> meanwhile, sam bradford has work to do in minnesota. he practiced for the second time with his new team. the head coach says sam will
split the team but wouldn't name him the starter. this will be sam's third team in three years. right now he's just trying to learn that playbook. >> i i've had to learn new offenses in the past, i don't know if i've ever had to lrn one quite this fast or in this much of a hurry. yesterday i got thrown into the fire, everything at once. >> now to baseball. the phillies starting a 7-game road trip this afternoon against the marlins. looking for offense scoring just 11 runs in their 6-game losing streak. that is a crushed shot right there. two-run homer to the upper deck tied the game. the phillies is over 6-2 the final. so change of scenery.
