there's really no fall to be found. we're talking tropics and we're talking heat and that's about all we've got to look at over the next week or so. let's get you right out to what's going on outside right now. going to start to see the bands of clouds, the outer cloud bands from jose moving on to the shore points. wet weather has been very, very limited. we've had a couple of spring also, that's about it. tomorrow we will see heavier downpours moving across the coast line. and while they are few and far between, it's not going to be a steady and pouring rain all day and the rain can come down heavily at time. you can see most of the rain still lurking off the coast as jose starts to make that northward push. it's moving north at about 8 miles per hour right now. still a category 1 hurricane although it's not quite looking like a hurricane anymore taking on some extra tropical characteristics now. we have a couple of watches and warnings to tell you about. coastal flood watch for the shore communities. the coastal flood advisory for the mouth of the delaware bay
and a tropical storm storm watch does remain in effect. it's not the day you want to be out on a boat. the tropical storm watch for the actual coast line has been canceled. it does not look as though winds will reach tropical storm force. it's a mild night. 64 in reading but it's a warm 70 in rehoboth and 71 in cape may. tomorrow more rain on the way. you can see the outer shower bands associated with jose will start to rotate in during the day tomorrow. it's midday that i think we start to see the steadiest rain especially down the shore and rotating in from the east. but notice here in the city we're just talking a few scattered showers. it's definitely not a washout though it will be a cooler day thanks to the cloud cover and a gusty breeze. steadier rain down the shore and that clears out and jose starts to take off this way and by wednesday morning you're going start to see some sun peek
through the clouds as the storm moves away. so your coastal impacts this is the most pronounced impact we'll find with jose. moderate coastal flooding, best threat for that will be tomorrow's evening high tide. beach erosion is going to be a concern as well. waves up to 10 feet will batter the shoreline leading to damaging beach erosion there. gusty winds, periods of rain along the coast. greatest impact is through the day tomorrow and by wednesday everything starts to calm down. we had tropical depression leads, now just a low we don't need to worry about. let's zoom down and take a look at maria. a category 5 hurricane and this is the latest track of it. it's moving across the island of dominica right now. it could make land fall along saint croix and possibly making land fall in puerto rico as a category 4 before heading towards the turks and caicos, possibly the bahamas, hopefully
spinning back out to sea and this is something we need to watch. we're about a week away if that were to threaten the united states. overnight, 66 is your low. tomorrow is actually not a terrible day in philadelphia. clouds, maybe a few breaks of sun, a stray shower here or there. best chance for rain is at the coast. and then we clear it out and we keep things up again. take a look at this stretch. we're talking about highs in the 80s for the for seeable future. we should be in the mid to upper 70s right now and we don't have anything like that in sight right through next week even though fall begins on friday. >> all right kate. thanks so much. >> don is up next with sports. >> we are talking about the eagles tonight. blunt comments by doug pederson. hear what the bird's

[ "taps" playing ]
yesterday's loss in kansas city. officially he had zero carries and zero yards. he only played. naturally a player might become frustrated by lack of playing time. today eagles head coach doug pederson was asked if he was worried about that. >> i would be worried if he wasn't. you know what i'm saying? if he was the other way. if he was just sort of matter of fact hohum. it just shows his passion he wants to play. >> i can't argue with how the game is going. you know just got to ride the wave. >> on to baseball now. polar opposites face to face in south philadelphia. the dodgers had 90-plus wins,
