too. we've got a hot end to a hot month. as you can see, we've got most of the next week at or above 90 degrees. and then it starts going down just as we head toward the labor day weekend. but as we end the month of august, it's going to be the hottest august ever recorded in philadelphia by a good bit, because of all that hot weather that's coming in the next week. for tomorrow, the feels-like temperature is going to be closer to the actual temperature. that's a sign the humidity is going to be downsome. somerton 90, feeling like 90. dublin feeling like 88. allentown feeling like 89. very, very close. the humidity is not all that high. it is higher in -- at the jersey show. 84, feeling like 87. longport, 84, feeling like 91 in cape may. at least the temperature, the
air temperature itself won't be 90 degrees like it has been at the shore today. shore, 84 saturday, 81 on sunday. more of the sea breeze keeping things comfortable. one of the reasons a lot of people go to the shore this time of the year. near 90 degrees both days over the weekend. now, in the tropics, we still have this disorganized mess here. it's now just off the cuban coast. you can't even find the center to it. but there are thunderstorms now developing near what we think is the center. and if that continues to be the case, we can't really see the center of circulation here, so that's a good thing. because it's headed into very warm waters. and as it goes the next couple days, the track, if it does develop, would take it just to south of florida, and into the gulf of mexico. it's got a better chance of developing in the gulf of mexico, and some of the computer
models then curve it up toward the florida coast. others take it into texas. of course, once it gets into the gulf of mexico, that would definitely cause problems. because not any way to miss land once it does that. beautiful weather in the poke oh nols. look at that. low temperature 59 degrees on saturday. 62 on sunday. we'll see how long all this beautiful weather lasts a little bit later. glen, thank you so much. it is about to get a little bit harder to steal an iphone. >> the changes apple is making to protect you and your smartphone. plus, staying at the speed limit. the new proposal that would force truckers and other big vehicles to slow down on our nation's highways, and keep you safer. plus, a heroic rescue caught on camera. you can see an officer pull up to the fiery car here. we'll show you what happens next inside that burning car as the passenger's pulled out. first, here's another look at the view of the closing bell.

into the plane you see here. but that's just part of the story. police say the man behind the wheel scaled a security fence, stripped down to his underwear, jumped in the running truck and then gunned it, right for the parked plane. he's facing a slew of charges this afternoon, and people were boarding the plane but no one was hurt. this heroic rescue that played out in georgia. a police officer's body camera rolls as he pulled up to a burning car that had just crashed. the driver unfortunately passed away. a passenger, though, trapped in
the back seat with all the doors jammed shut. the officer's fire extinguisher does little to put out the flames. so he bends a door frame back to pull the man through a back window. you see that process happening now. look and listen. >> come on, man! >> wow. hard to see there, but the passenger is out. minutes later the back seat of the car was scorched. just unbelievable. heroic, best way to sum that up. other news. british billionaire entrepreneur richard branson is on the mend after surviving a serious bike crash. >> and he has the pictures to prove it. branson posted photos of his injuries after flying head-first off his bike in the british virgin islands. he said he thought he was going

else. lehigh valley, delaware, a lot of places in the low 90s. let's fatake a look at some of e p.a. suburbs. lehigh valley, 92 degrees at landon, 88 in reading, 98 in hopewell, 90 in allentown, 92 in bethlehem, and 90 in easton. those numbers in the lehigh valley and berks county, one of the areas that we focus on. well, focusing on looking at some clouds. we don't find very much. you won't find much in the entire state of pennsylvania. not much in ohio, either, as far as any kind of rain. so we don't have any threat of rain over the weekend, or into early next week. it's going to be hot, mainly dry all the way through the rest of the month. it will end up being the hottest august ever recorded. but next weekend, labor day
weekend, it's a different story. now, rain chances as we go through the weekend, virtually none. and creep up a little bit by wednesday. we've got maybe a 30% chance in philadelphia. at the jersey shore, not much of a chance through all those days as well. so it's a pretty good time to go ahead and wash your car. tonight we've got dry conditions p. it's not going to be as humid. so some of these readings are actually going to go down below 70 degrees. look at that. allentown, 64. quakertown 67. reading 65. it wasn't like that this morning. we had lows in the 70s across most of the area. there's proof that the humidity is down. tomorrow, temperatures get into the 90s, perhaps, again in philadelphia. but the humidity is lower. so it won't feel like 96 tomorrow.
and it may not even reach 90 in places like allentown, and quakertown. and that is just the beginning. now, in the tropics, we keep looking for a circulation with this thing. north of cuba. here in the bahamas. a lot of thunderstorms starting to develop. but not near where the center would be. that's what is needed for this thing to develop and to strengthen. now, if the remnants of it survive, going through the florida straits and going into the gulf of mexico, early next week, that's when there's a chance of a regeneration. over the next five days, we've got some pretty nice weather at the shore. it was in the 90s today. even at the beaches. not so over the weekend. a bit of a sea breeze. it's going to be warm. humidity not bad. just a beautiful weekend. just a beautiful weekend. and you can see we're in the 90s in philadelphia through the middle of the week.
chance of showers on wednesday, as the low temperatures start to go up. an indication of the humidity going up, okay? so there we are on wednesday. look what happens. by thursday and friday, by friday, a high of only 80 degrees with a low of 59, as we head into labor day weekend. so right now, that's the labor day weekend there. saturday, sunday, monday. it gets a little bit warmer as we head through the weekend. but again, it's a fairly dry pattern. >> some concerns for rip currents starting sunday. >> yeah. and it's related to gaston. the storm way, way out in the atlantic. it creates these waves. and it takes days, but eventually they come toward the east coast and can affect us. >> all right. glenn, thank you so much. nbc 10 needs your help spreading the word about free money to those making a difference in the community. and time is running out, by the

plans to retire. but the postal service could not let 50 years go unnoticed. with tears in his eyes, pender accepted the applause of his co-workers. the philadelphia native received a silver watch and praise from the postmaster general for his dedication. during this morning's celebration at the city's main post office, pender said he doesn't even think about retiring. >> you know, if you don't use it, you lose it. i keep thinking, you know, keep going. let's keep going. >> got to love that smile there. when pender began his job back in 1966, a stamp was 5 cents, and postal workers made about $2.25 an hour. >> congratulations on his 50 years. wow. >> incredible. coming up next at 5:00, the olympics may be over, but you can still celebrate our local athletes. see how you can welcome them home this weekend.
