five cases of zika have been connected to mosquitos in that area. containing zika in south beach will be very difficult as high-rise buildings and strong winds make it hard for crews to spray the insecticide that kills the bugs. in our area in montgomery county researchers are looking for volunteers as they work to find a vaccine for the zika virus. the study would be conducted later on this year in the winter. would you volunteer? a lot of folks we spoke to yesterday told us they would not be willing to have zika injected into their body even if it leads to a vaccine. >> i would prefer not to be a guinea pig. >> i don't think i would be willing to do that. that doesn't sound like something i would be interested in. >> i don't want the virus, i don't want to take that risk. >> inovio pharmaceuticals is looking for 40 volunteers to take part in the trials. participants are compensated for their time and their travel. if you are interested you can apply online. also yesterday we talked to a
local doctor about what you can do in the meantime to prevent zika until a vaccine is developed. >> these type of mosquitos tend to bite more during the day. so longer clothes and i know that's hard when it's warm out, but use deet, you can use oil, lemon eucalyptus or ir-3535, they are all approved rep lents by the cdc. >> the doctor also reminds homeowners to remove all standing water from their yards. standing water is of course a breeding site for mosquitos. we've got too talk about that summer heat. here is a look at august to far, the red showing you days that were in the 90s. yellow showing you days in the 80s and then do remember as we move into the next week and a half here there could still be some fluctuation in the forecast temperatures. what we saw was on the 6th one
day of 90s then that eight day long heat wave. what we're looking at today is day two of the 90s. yesterday we hit 90, we are forecasting the same today. here is the heads up, not looking like we will hit that heat wave because sunday forecasting highs right in the upper 80s, but it's going to be a close wall. we see that bump up just a degree or two and we will hit yet another heat wave for us. so that's something we are watching very actively in the forecast. right now, though, right at 90 for your forecast high later today in philadelphia. your radar and satellite, no showers for us to track in our area this morning, don't expect it through much of the day. very, very isolated, we're talking maybe a few sprinkles in parts of new jersey to philadelphia in the afternoon, although for the most part sun/cloud mix all we're calling for. then we pull this radar out, this is a wider view of course, that's to show you that cold front that sits well to our west, this front is going to be tracking our direction, that will provide us with a chance of showers and thunderstorms.
so the risk today very low, not even to that isolated scattered territory, but in the days to come we see it bump up. 90 the forecast is center city, somerton 88 and chestnut hill, 87 red wood. it will feel like out there. 89 lansdale for your temperature and 87 west chester. then we look into the lehigh valley, allentown 88, easton 89. most of us with that cloud/sun mix, berlin at 89 degrees and we are looking at long port 83. along the shore temperatures will be a little lower than elsewhere. also looking in the upper 80s through parts of delaware. 6:21 on this saturday. now to our decision 2016 coverage. republican presidential nominee donald trump will campaign in virginia today. this follows a very busy friday. yesterday he toured the flood damage in louisiana. in michigan he urged
african-americans to vote for him. and he began airing his first tv ad of the general election in battle ground states like pennsylvania. >> donald trump's america is secure. terrorists and dangerous criminals kept out. the border secure. our families safe. >> the ad focuses on immigration and national security, drawing trump's contrast in views with hillary clinton. as i mentioned, trump visited louisiana yesterday. his visit to the flood ravaged state included several stops in and around the state capitol of baton rouge. his running mate mike pence joined him for the tour. the gop ticket visited homes, schools and an emergency response command center, all damaged by the floodwaters. trump's visit followed a call by louisiana's democratic governor asking candidates not to make political stops in the flooded areas. hillary clinton called louisiana's governor to talk about relief efforts. in a facebook post the democratic nominee said that her heart breaks for louisiana.
