>> well, we hit the 90s again today. four days in a row. still above normal for this time of the year. 92 philadelphia and delaware. our pennsylvania suburbs are coming in close to 90 in some locations and cochranville is 88. malvern coming in at 90 degrees right now and chaz ford 89 degrees and a warm afternoon in warrington. ft. washington 89 and b bedminister coming in at 86 degrees. we'll stay hot and dry until thursday, and then a chance for scattered showers, maybe a thunderstorm. mostly on thursday. we could see some as early as late wednesday night, so as we go into tomorrow. philadelphia area near 90 as well as wednesday. thursday we're dropping to the mid-80s with that rain chance. pennsylvania suburbs are around 90 the next two days and sunny, and then by sunday 38 degrees with a rain chance.
6:18 pm
wednesday near 90 and staying dry and by thursday we have the rain chance around 80 degrees in the lehigh vale. if you're in new jersey, around 90 tomorrow and wednesday. the shore mostly around the mid to low 80s, and if you're in delaware tuesday and wednesday, around 90 degrees and staying dry and everybody has that rain chance thursday and temperatures dropping to about the mid to low 80s and an even bigger drop as we go into friday, so a cooler end to the week. those are going to be some noticeable changes, especially as we go into friday, so you will notice the temperatures dropping off. going into labor day weekend though, another thing we'll be watching aside from the cool air are the rip currents at the beaches. that's one thing we'll pay very close attention to. now, it is in part due to two tropical systems. we have one right off the north carolina coastline and the other tropical depression just south of florida in the gulf of mexico. look at the first up, tropical depression eight off the carolina coast. it could become a tropical storm and then kind of swinging back out to sea once it grazes the outer banks of north carolina.
6:19 pm
staying away from our area we don't expect the rain from it, but it will be affecting rip currents along our beaches in new jersey and delaware. so that would be more like the middle of this week but threat is going to start by about tomorrow. tropical depression number nine though in the gulf of mexico could become a tropical storm and could make landfall anywhere from the florida panhandle to the tampa bay area possibly as a tropical storm. that would be on thursday. cross over the state hand move into the atlantic and stay offshore from us, but the wind around this thing would then affect the rip currents for us again. this would be going into the weekend just in time for labor day weekend. if you're heading to the beaches in delaware or the jersey shore, be very cautious because we do expect a risk for rip currents by then. so we're going to start that by tomorrow. for the weekend, if you're heading to the shore for your labor day weekend, we'll take a look at a beautiful forecast for that. saturday, sunday and monday around 85 degrees. nice and sunny and uv index very high. again, be very careful of the rip currents. your ten day on 10, you see the
6:20 pm
big change, 84 on thursday and chance of thunderstorms, 81 on friday and 82 saturday and 84 sunday. monday looking at mid-80s and beautiful across your labor day weekend. we'll stay nice and dry and sunny an feeling like summer though right after labor day. >> i'm john bhurk at csn, a case of good news and bad news as they get one key player back from injury and another hasn't healed as quickly as they had hoped. it's all coming up next in sports.
