you're along the shore right around the upper 70s. so we will be cooler. we were also talking about the tropics, tropical depression number 9 has formed with an active tropics even farther out in the atlantic that we don't have to worry about. but the one we're watching is in the florida straits. between the keys and cuba, that's the one we're watching, tropical depression number 9. what we expect it to do is travel in the gulf of mexico, then it will take a really hard right-hand turn that could put it from the florida panhandle down to ft. myers, not till thursday maybe only is the tropical storm at that point. don't expect it to impact our area. looks like it could be moving out into the atlantic after that. but, of course, this is still very far out in time. we'll keep tracking it for you to see if we can expect any more rain in our forecast. so take a look at that ten-day through your labor day weekend. that's coming up. coming up in sports, just like last year, the eagles are dominating in the preseason. the birds put together another convincing performance last

was nice. you know, i was really happy with the communication up front at the line of scrimmage. i thought our tempo in and out of the huddle was really good again, getting to the line quickly. but overall i think the execution was great. something we can build on moving forward. >> the wide receiver's play last night certainly made bradford's job easier. he got his first significant playing time. they showed why they signed him on this td catch from sam bradford. >> i mean, it's just natural. he's a big target. going up and making plays like that. i know i have to take advantage of those opportunities in the red zone. i feel like for me to go out there and do that, all my teammates can see what i'm capable of doing and that's what i came here to do. i still have to compete. i have to get into the playbook, study more, to use those opportunities that are given to me. >> to baseball now, veteran catcher a.j. ellis took the news hard after learning that the dodger s traded him to phillies.

my son has meningitis b. but how did we end up here? his mom thought he had the flu and that he was covered by the meningococcal meningitis vaccine he had received. until 2014 there were no vaccines for meningitis b in the u.s. now there are. while uncommon, meningitis b can lead to death within 24 hours.
trumenba is a vaccine for 10 through 25 year olds to help prevent group b meningococcal disease. trumenba should not be given if you had a severe allergic reaction after a previous dose. most common side effects were injection-site pain, fatigue... headache, muscle pain, and chills. ask your doctor or pharmacist about all the risks and benefits of trumenba and tell them if you've received any other meningitis b vaccines. meningitis b can be spread by typical sharing like... a drink... a spoon... a kiss. it all started here... it might have been prevented with trumenba. ask your doctor or pharmacist about trumenba.
