nothing compared to what's coming tomorrow. mid 50s in some of the warmer spots by morning it's 48 degrees in delaware with heavy rain, also heavy rain in new jersey and the jersey shore and the rain is beginning in philadelphia area at 50 degrees. our biggest problems are going to be at the coast line before this is all over with. a coastal flood warning with moderate coastal flooding specially with the evening high tide tomorrow. whatever flooding occurs in the morning, it's going to be worse in the evening. probably a foot higher in the evening. now where are we going to see the flooding? let's go over to the neighborhoods and see that. these colors indicate the amount of flooding up to one foot, one to two feet across the jersey shore. you can see a lot of the area getting at least some flooding.
atlantic city, longport going to see flooding in the back bay. and also in some inland areas, route 30 and route 9, pleasantville, summers point, the usual places will see some flooding too. further to the south ocean city, stone harbor, and then in delaware parts of dewey beach and bethny beach wherever these colors are there's going to be some flooding especially in the avenuing. we've had unseasonably cool weather just about all week. tomorrow it will be about 56 and that's a stretch of weather with the average high of 71. friday is the nastiest day of all. why are we saying that? look down to the south.
look at this stuff. it's coming straight up the coast and more moisture every hour that we're seeing. as we go to the future cast by tomorrow morning's rush, the rain starting in philadelphia, it's already raining for hours at the shore and it just gets heavier as we go through the morning and into the early afternoon, may see a break late in the afternoon, but that does not mean the system is exiting. it's spinning around. so unfortunately for saturday we have clouds and some more showers. nothing like friday, but that's still not a pretty day and still not a warm day. we're going to have to wait until sunday to see significant improvement. how much rain? as we go through the day tomorrow, some of this new information actually suggests less rain than what we saw just a little while ago with the previous computer model. so that may be some good news. we could use some good news in
the weather. tomorrow 55, saturday pretty cloudy. temperatures barely getting into the 60s if you get a little sunshine at the shore. everybody gets nicer weather on sunday. if there's rain it will be first thing in the morning. monday looks dry and 82 on tuesday and wednesday and then we're just back to normal summer thunderstorms. how about that? >> all right. a special movie screening tonight for a film chronicling former eagle's kevin's battle for als. this is what happens when a team of people chose to honor. turner died in march at the age of 46. sports is next. dear fellow citizen, time spent with my son really makes me appreciate "the now".

sam is the guy for the job and he's the best quarterback we have on the roster. there's a lot of quarterbacks who are in situations that know they are going to sign back with teams. so we want him here. i believe in him. if he does decide to come back i'll be one of the first guys excited and ready to get to work with him. >> plenty of former eagles don't agree with what sam is doing. he refuse fd to be traded from the 49ers to the ravens he has a hot take on sam. >> that's the sign of a coward to be honest, but if you're not secure in your ability, it shouldn't matter who they're drafting or who is coming in. that's should motivate you and prepare you for the best season you could probably ever have. >> the phillies lost three of
