joaquin. it's in the bahamas gaining strength with a possible track for the east coast this weekend. good evening everyone. i'm jim rosenfield. the umbrellas are up. we're tracking the impact in our area. sheena parveen is watching the first problem. strong winds and heavy rain. >> that's right, jim. the first round going into the weekend will begin friday into saturday. we do have a first alert weather day. tomorrow we'll have rain around but the strongest winds and the heaviest rain we expect to start friday. heavy downpours with very gusty winds. possibly up to 50 miles an hour wind gusts. also flooding along the shore and inland. beach erosion and storm surge possible with the strong on shore winds. here's what's happening now. a cold front moved through. now a cooldown going into tomorrow. the winds increased. windy and breezy and chilly temperatures through the afternoon. then we'll be watching this area of low pressure to our south. right off the southeast coast.
this is what we're watching going from friday into saturday. area of low pressure will ride up this stationary front and bring very heavy rain and not only heavy rain but very strong winds. it's breezy outside right now. the wind into friday and saturday, it's going to get stronger. the on-shore wind will bring us concerns with coastal flooding. now we're talking about hurricane joaquin. that will start to approach into the end of the week. that's going to be approaching the carolinas by the beginning of the weekend. once it makes landfall, it's going to get absorbed into the stationary front. the track for the storm is still uncertain, though. hurricane joaquin, here it is. spinning around the bahamas. yes, it has gained strength. it's now a category 3 hurricane. max winds, 150 miles an hour. this makes day major hurricane now. it's currently moving to the southwest but it will move up to the north. models have been agreeing with it. for a small amount of time, it could become a category 4. by saturday, back to a category
2 off the north carolina coastline. that's saturday 8:00 at night. then you see it makes landfall somewhere from north carolina up towards our area. most models have them pretty consistent at keeping it south of philadelphia. either way, we would see the impacts of that. that would be late in the day saturday or sunday into late in the day monday. the cone of uncertainty stretches from north carolina up towards our area. we will be watching this very closely. either way, regardless of where it makes landfall, we expect heavy rain and a lot of wind. that's why we're especially watching our coastal areas. again, we're looking at a very messy weekend. that's going to amp up going into friday. jim? >> sheena, i know there are comparisons already to hurricane sandy. is that legit? how do the two storms compare so far? >> i think it's only fair to try to compare a storm like this to hurricane sandy because of the similarities that we do see. right now, we'll compare the similarities. we have the same setup.
the big area of high pressure to the north causing the left ward turn, causing it with sandy. right towards the shore. the forecast, those are in disagreement. we do expect that, though. going through time with the storms. as we look at the differences, stronger but also more exact. a lot more rain ahead of the storm as well. and the track does appear to be farther south than sandy. of course, all these things will get updated through the rest of the week. i'll have more details coming up. >> i know you'll keep watching it, sheena. >> doug shimell checking out the situation at the shore tonight. >> reporter: at the shore, many people have been very lucky since sandy in that there's been no major storms and they're hoping their luck has not run out this weekend. everyone's intuition was telling them the sail thing. >> i wish we weren't due, but we're due. it's a couple years. >> reporter: living through hurricane sandy, taught the
gerards not to trust any storm. >> i was like, we should pull the boat out now instead of waiting until friday to do it. >> you get that feeling in your gut that oh, no here we go again. >> reporter: after sandy pushed water over john's seawall, the public works director takes no chances. >> we start out preparing the island for flooding. start working on generators, making sure everything is up and running. >> it was total devastation. >> on jim and nancy king's block of hack anyplace, homes are missing or elevated and unoccupied from sandy. the thought of a hurricane joaquin is not fun. >> is it ever going to go away? >> no. once you see that devastation and you live it with your neighbors, you never forget. >> reporter: and so the flashbacks continue.
for many of those families, still rebuilding after sandy, they say they've got little choice but to wait out through the weekend and early next week and just keep back with the rebuild. in brigantine, i'm doug shimell, nbc 10 news. >> count on nbc 10 to keep an eye on the rain and the roads tomorrow. a new model will come out overnight and bill henley will have the latest track at 4:00 a.m. and we'll watch the roads as the rain slows down the morning drive. prepare for the storms ahead with the first alert weather coverage any time anywhere on your phone or tablet. download the nbc 10 app for free right now. to breaking news right now from bucks county. sky force 10 over this tanker fire in pen dell in the last 20 minutes on route 1 on i-95. route 1 shut down as crews try to get the fire out. it's carrying a 6,000-gallon gasoline tanker. the fire is now out. but crews will be out cleaning up for quite a while.

bahamas the next few days. finally making that north turn by about friday. then we'll see it getting closer to the carolinas possibly by friday night into early saturday. then there you see moving inland. these are computer models. there's a bit of a spread here. once they move inland, they'll combine with a stationary front and get absorbed back to the northeast. of course, all this we'll be watching into the weekend. we do expect windy, rainy weather through your weekend. breezy and cooler tonight with a chance of showers. temperatures in about the mid to upper 50s. tomorrow, breezy, cooler day. temperatures topping out in the mid to low 60s. mostly south and east of philadelphia. heavy rain and wind on friday and same thing on saturday. by sunday and monday, that would be joaquin's effects. temperatures around 70 degrees. but the rain and the wind continue. of course, we'll be tracking joaquin and all the updates starting tomorrow morning again and bill henley will have all the updates. danny? >> thank you, sheena. good news on the eagles injury front to tell you about.

teams in the nfl that don't have a play of 40 or more yards. but it may be tough with heavy rains coming to washington sunday. sam bradford is averaging under six yards per pass attempt, which is the worst in the nfl for a starting quarterback. on balls thrown, more than ten yards down the field, he is just 8 for 28. in fact, he has not completed a ball thrown in the air more than 20 yards. is it because defenses aren't allowing the birds to get the big plays or is sam not comfortable throwing the deep ball yet or are the eagles play makers not able to get open? here are sam and chip kelly trying to answer that question. >> i don't think we've called a can get to. you know, i think it depends on what we see is our best matchups, what we see as favorable. >> a combination of everything. we've had some drops but there's been times when guys are open and we didn't put it on them at the appropriate time.
>> the eagles won six of the last nine trips to washington. as you know, these games with the redskins are usually close. at the nova care complex, john clark, comcast sportsnet. the phillies are taking a proactive approach to the wet weather moving the scheduled 7:00 game up to noon. things get heated in this one today. mets star, cespedes left after being hit by a pitch earlier. the mets get retribution here. they go headhunting against him. it does not escalate from there. we go to the seventh inning, darren ruff at the dish. the phillies try to fight their way back. a passed ball and a run scored. turns out to be the game winner. phillies get the victory, 7-5ment. flyers and devils in philly. you see the game winner as the devils double up the flyers 4-2. that's your look at sports. i'm danny pommels. we'll be right back.
