upper 70s. new jersey near 90. as well as delaware. tomorrow along the shore, dry, mid-80s to low 80s. by thursday, everyone has that rain chance. and then by friday, everyone's dry. much cooler. low humidity. that's going to make a huge difference. the good news is, it's going to last all the way through your labor day weekend. so cooler temperatures this labor day weekend. humidity stays low across the weekend. it will feel fantastic. but we do have one threat we have been watching. dangerous rip currents along the jersey shore and delaware beaches. so today and tomorrow, and then we go into friday and through your labor day weekend, we're going to keep those rip currents at more of a moderate risk. it could be a little higher in some cases, but for now we'll say we expect them to be fairly dangerous. you want to be very cautious if you head out there this weekend. right now, though, we'll stay dry for tonight and tomorrow afternoon. here's wednesday at 2:00 p.m., nice and dry. tomorrow night we could have some showers flaring up through the poconos and lehigh valley.
then we go into your thursday. thursday is a day where you'll need an umbrella. scattered showers and storms possible by the afternoon. doesn't look like too much. but we will see those changes. and by friday, even bigger changes. sunny, dry, and the cool air finally starts to move in on friday. tropics, though, they're fairly active. we have a tropical depression off the north carolina coast. another one off the coast of south florida. the first one which is giving us the rip current risk today and tomorrow, that's tropical depression 8 off the north carolina coast. expect it to be a tropical storm as it moves away from the united states. but still, it's going to impact our shore and delaware beaches. so again, be very careful if you're heading out there and going in the water for sure. tropical depression number 9 is in the gulf of mexico. this one is also going to take a turn. tropical storm possibly by the time it moves onshore in florida. anywhere from the florida panhandle to just north of tampa, by tuesday bringing them a lot of rain. for us, though, we don't expect the rain from it. it will stay just offshore.
as of now, that's the forecast. by saturday, it will be the closest. and by saturday we'll be looking at the threat for rip current risks at the shore. so be very cautious of that. your weekend forecast for everybody, looks really good. sky conditions, mostly sunny. 81 saturday in philadelphia. 83 on sunday. monday for your labor day 85 degrees. so nice cooldown compared to what we have seen for most of this summer, really, most of this month especially. if you're heading to the shore, 79 saturday. 75 sunday. 80 degrees on monday. but again, the rip current risk at the shore and the delaware beaches, of course, the rest of the area, really looking nice and dry. amy? thanks so much, sheena. doug pederson talks about the position battles that will go on in thursday's preseason finale. tim tebow and his baseball workout.
