9:10 am
9:11 am
en el i've been talking about this the last two days or so. hurricane patricia has weakened to a tropical storm after making landfall in mexico last night. now of course seriously
9:12 am
downgraded winds at about 50 miles an hour down from almost 200 at one point. moving forward though the main threat with the storm will be heavy rain and some flash flooding across mexico. to texas. the state already dealing with devastating floods. abc's matt gutman is on the ground in mexico. >> reporter: this morning we're getting our first look at the damage hurricane patricia left behind. a tropical nightmare for vacation goers, this lounge area batter against the windows. people forced to take shelter, looking on from the cover of their hotel rooms. the storm ripping through coastal areas like a buzz saw whipping through towns with 165- mile per hour winds. the roaring currents in the impossible. ambulance rescue efforts hindered by flooding and fierce winds, barely able to plow through the brunt of the storm
9:13 am
and again watch that truck traveling along, hydroplaining across the unforgiving highways spinning out of control from dangerous high winds, smashing into the median before tipping over completely. from the international space center, hurricane patricia seemed to smother a good size of the globe. the storm descending so quickly it triggered a mass exodus. tens of thousands of locals and tourists evacuated crammed on to the puss from the resort town of puerto vallarta where we found tourists daniel frankin, camping out tonight at the airport. >> because we figured this was the safest place. we're talking to the lady that always comes into clean our room and she hugged us and she was crying and we were crying. >> traffic at a stand still, puerto vallarta boarded up and sand bagged, by friday afternoon the airports along the coastal closed. civil authorities moving inward, tourists had been before. police not advising residents
9:14 am
many of the estimated 10,000 americans forced to ride it out in puerto vallarta like stacey z aparhad from san diego. >> we are a little concerned but trying to keep our game face on for the kids. >> the intensity of this incredible storm rattling the cockpit of this hurricane hunter sitting in the eye of patricia when it was just a category 4. >> matt gutman, abc news. >> i'm sure we'll learn more about the damage left behind throughout the day. those poor tourists down there relaxed and being on vacation and then-- >> that's the end of that. >> not just any storm but really you don't see something like that often. >> no. >> in your world. >> but there are two pieces of science that can maybe help us understand it a little better. how did it get so strong so quickly? el nino is happening so the current along that actual stretch of water before landfall in mexico about two to three degrees above the normal and warm water does intensify hurricanes. also one reason why it's
9:15 am
weakening so quickly is because once it goes over the mountain ranges a storm is shredded apart the winds can't maintain their momentum so it falls apart, so doesn't explain why hurricanes happen to someplaces and but at least the intensity better. >> even the remnants were reducing damage after shredding over texas and louisiana. >> exactly that's what we are talking about this morning. we get going with bright skies and temperatures are in the 40s but we'll be tracking what's left over this tropical system into texas and how it could potentially affect the east coast going into the middle of next week so once we get these storms and they landfall very often they can be caught up in very intense situations in the upper atmosphere sending moisture and world. 57 degrees is the high looking for this afternoon let's get you going with headlines. the tropical storm now formerly the hurricanes heading for texas at least the left overs. clouds are collecting today for
9:16 am
will be damp at daybreak by tomorrow so there's a front coming in that will bring us rain overnight to early next morning and the rain next week could have a tropical connection back to patricia so we're watching that with the long term patterns. temperatures out on the island almost 50 for hampton bays, mid 40s for everybody else and we look at the temperature change from yesterday to this morning is about 10-15 degrees colder for the inland locations, be aware of that. be ready, layer up. it's cloudy, cool not really going to see a huge improvement in temperatures. we go from the chilly morning lows to temperatures just in the 50s so we'll go for 57 in the city as the official high. clouds are racing in. this is the front that will affect us late tonight into early tomorrow morning so a few showers expected sunday when you wake up but the entire day is not a wash. instead those showers come in early and should give way to sunshine by sunday afternoon. so here is what's happening down in mexico. a lot of moisture coming in and we turn on the radar for texas and we could start to see
9:17 am
what's happening. a lot of the winds are breaking up so those are not well defined lines anymore. instead we'll see those rain bands move into parts of south texas, so the storm itself moving at quite a clip. now at 45-mile an hour winds moving at 21 miles per hour won't take long for that to get across-the-boarder and then you'll see this long train of moisture extends all the way up through the midwest and into parts of canada. that pattern how its affected during the week will be something that we will be watching very carefully so on the futurecast yes, rain for texas from what's left of patricia but what happens with that moisture as it continues east ward and even northeastward will be the big question for us heading into the middle of the week so we're watching that very carefully. here is the accuweather forecast. 57 for the high, tonight we go down to 53 doesn't cool off as much as its been the last couple of days. instead we start with cloudy conditions, low 50s and spotty showers and getting into the mid 60s by sunday afternoon. closing out the weekend very
9:18 am
beautiful forecast to finish it all up monday looks good too at 58. tuesday 60 degrees and then we track what we think mid week will be at least a little bit of tropical rain for us. mid 60s and friday 57, long term forecast for marathon i will try to whip something up for the extended trend here for the long term forecast for 9:40ish that's when the long weather happens again so around 9:40ish. >> i like it. >> for marathon day. >> whip it up amy, thank you. >> whip it. straight ahead on eye witness news saturday morning, five months after his tragic death, princeton university is now honoring the memory of

9:22 am
ingredients. the suit claims 22 work out and fat burner supplements contain chemicals that aren't approved for sale in the united states. new york's attorney general made a similar complaint in march and gnc agreed to stricter testing of its herbal supplements. >> companies that manufacture or sell herbal supplements have a responsibility to make sure their products contain every ingredient that's on the label and do not include ingredients that are not on the label. >> gnc says the accusations are "without merit." it says that it no longer sells products containing those ingredients.

9:25 am

9:41 am
but just a lot of wild weather the last-- >> all over the place. >> yes. >> but here looking pretty good compared to the madness elsewhere in the world we're sitting pretty here. we've got. outside this morning beautiful sunrise, gorgeous skies and then the clouds just raced in as we were expecting and it's mostly cloudy through the afternoon a bit of a north easterly breeze and it going to feel chilly at times so second half of the weekend has a different vibe to it so let's start here with the clouds and look how they swooped intaking over the shot looking down into lower manhattan. we can see of course the empire state building, good visibility and one world trade glistening with a little bit of that sun light getting on to it but it will be mostly cloudy through the afternoon. 44 currently in central park, humidity is at 65% in the north east wind at five miles an hour pressure is on the rise. head lines we're following tropical storm patricia heading for texas was a category 5 hurricane already downgraded to
9:42 am
across central mexico and clouds are collecting for us here by tomorrow morning we could be damp at daybreak, a few showers early and then those are out of here we close the weekend with pretty nice conditions. rain could come into the picture again next weekend having a tropical connection back to patricia so that pattern is one we're watching very carefully. lows this morning started some freezing north and west and it was very chilly overnight inland. we had more mild temperatures for long island and the jersey shore and right now same story, closer you are to the water the more the easterly influence you're getting from the atlantic ocean waters which are in the 60s so inland colder air and you've got the clouds on top of that so it will be limited temperatures today. not getting really hot by any means even for the next several days but at least our temperatures could improve much as 10 degrees by tomorrow afternoon once the front comes through so clouds here, we've got the front that is really from canada all the way down through the ohio river valley and that moisture is coming in our direction for tonight into tomorrow.
9:43 am
these will be spotty rain showers. it shouldn't be a real mess for us but damp early on sunday morning. then we see what's happening with patricia. still a lot of rain on the back side but the storm itself is basically falling apart and it brings all this tropical moisture into texas where they already had some incredible storms so here we are with the system, at 11:00 a.m. it will be trying to get a little closer by noon or 1:00 its crossed over into parts of texas because it's still moving at 21 miles an hour it's a pretty good clip this storm is moving. this is the stream of moisture that goes all the way up into north east. that's part of our cold front. how that interacts in the coming days will determine what kind of moisture we get wednesday and thursday, but it looks like it comes into the inland us and then we get that moisture sort of getting caught up along the east coast. maybe by wednesday night into thursday we've got the rain around here. if that happens there's another
9:44 am

9:54 am
nice pass. safety first. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto can cause serious, and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto , watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto , tell your doctor about any kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. you know xarelto is the #1 prescribed blood thinner in its class. that's a big win. it is for me. with xarelto there is no regular blood monitoring and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto ... ...was the right move for us.
