5:00 pm
financial field. jousting with the jets tonight in a game you'll only see on nbc 10. breaking news. the latest track for hurricane hermine arrived just moments ago. because of that track, there's a new tropical storm watch for parts of our area. this gives us a better idea of what the storm will bring us as it moves our way. >> it is threatening to impact our region over the labor day weekend. a live look right now at the coast. this is cape may today, where beachgoers are wondering what hermine will mean as they prepare to say farewell to summer. we have live first alert team coverage in the weather center tracking hermine. and the impact the storm could have this weekend. >> we begin with sheena parveen with more on where hermine is right now. >> well, hermine is still in the gulf of mexico. it is a category 1 hurricane, but it has increased in speed, moving 14 miles an hour, and will be making landfall tonight somewhere in florida, right
5:01 pm
along the florida panhandle, closer to the tallahassee area. just in, we now locally have a tropical storm watch as we go into the weekend because of hermine and as it moves closer to us, what it means for our weather. the entire jersey shore, the sussex county beaches in delaware, tropical storm watch until sunday around 4:40 in the afternoon. this means as we go into part of your labor day weekend, you can expect tropical storm conditions. that is certainly a possibility. now we'll go back to hurricane hermine, spinning in the gulf of mexico. so it's still very far away. heavy rain bands moving onshore in florida. but the center of this storm, the eye of the hurricane is still about 120 miles offshore. tallahassee right in the path. rain heading in that direction. there you see the eye of the hurricane. that's pretty well defined. and we have one buoy that just so happens to sit closest to the eye of the storm. wave heights there 20 feet, winds gusting near 60 miles an
5:02 pm
hour. so again, it's a weak category 1 hurricane, but as far as the storm is concerned, it's very strong. more heavy rain heading towards the florida panhandle toward tallahassee. heavy bands moving through gainesville. in the tampa bay area, look at these heavy rain bands approaching. chances are you've seen a lot of flooding. if you look at the buoys near the tampa bay area, wind gusts 60 miles an hour, and wave heights over ten feet. the storm expected to impact our area over the labor day holiday weekend. chief meteorologist glenn "hurricane" schwartz standing by with a closer look at the newest track just released. >> yeah, sheena, of course, the timing could hardly be worse, happening on a big holiday weekend. and a slow-moving storm affecting multiple days at the beach. we're seeing the track of the storm now starting in the gulf
5:03 pm
of mexico. and generally heading into florida. and then up the east coast. at least inland of the east coast. there's the center of the storm. and as we go through the next couple of days, take a look at a couple of things. the new track just in minutes ago from the hurricane center. 80-mile-an-hour max winds late tonight, 60-mile-an-hour max winds even while it's inland. friday afternoon. 50-mile-an-hour max winds even when it exits north carolina. so it could still be a tropical storm, maybe extra tropical, or a combination, but it doesn't matter, 50-mile-an-hour wind, with a big storm and a lot of rain, that's a significant storm. and this is the latest track. sunday, monday, tuesday, not moving very much. just spinning around offshore,
5:04 pm
and that's going to keep spinning in winds and churning up the waves. here's the latest future radar. you can see by saturday morning, just starting to get a little bit of light rain in southern delaware. but by later in the day, especially in the evening, we're going to see some of the rain, and as the storm strengthens offshore, watch what happens. some of the rain starts to come back as this storm strengthens. so more on that coming up in a little bit. >> all right, glenn. count on the nbc 10 app to track hurricane hermine this weekend. get live radar, the latest forecast and weather alerts for your neighborhood or for your holiday destination. that app is a free download. all eyes are on hermine at the jersey shore. today's rain kept the beach clear here in cape may today. beachgoers and businesses are hoping for sunshine this holiday

5:17 pm
said when he told trump yesterday, quote, mexico will not pay for a wall. on the other side of things, vice presidential nominee tim kaine said trump, quote, caved and choked by failing to discuss his demands that mexico pay for the wall during trump's vis et with nieto. kaine told the crowd in new hampshire today that trump's casting of mexican immigrants as criminals is similar to past discrimination against irish and jewish people. matt lauer will moderate the nbc news and msnbc commander in chief forum with both hillary clinton and donald trump. the first joint candidate event ahead of the general election will air live next wednesday night at 8:00 right here on nbc 10. now, your nbc 10 first alert weather. well, we are tracking changes in our labor day weekend forecast. it's all because of hurricane hermine, which is now a hurricane. a live look at rehoboth beach. overcast skies right now.
5:18 pm
sunny tomorrow. but going into your labor day weekend, we're going to see things really deteriorate. conditions will be deteriorating. category 1, still in the gulf of mexico, a weak category 1, but it has a little bit of time to strengthen a bit more before it moves on land in florida. heavy rain bands here. look at the newest most updated track from the national hurricane center. moving onshore maybe around the tallahassee area in the florida panhandle by late tonight, early tomorrow morning, as a category 1 hurricane. then continuing to move through the southeast maybe as a tropical storm. then heading up towards the mid-atlantic states, a little bit farther offshore now. for sunday, monday and tuesday, this system could very well be almost stalling offshore. at that point it would continue to stir up the seas. we would continue to have the rip currents at the beaches. for your labor day weekend, sunday, monday, right offshore we do at least expect some rain and quite a bit of wind to be impacting part of the area. closer look at the hurricane as it spins.
5:19 pm
there you see the very well-defined eye of the storm. lots of heavy rain bands. when we talk about hurricanes, we tell you the right side of the hurricane in the direction of motion is the strongest. that is very clear here. as it moves to the northeast, look at the right side, all the heavy rain bands moving into the tampa bay area. the left side, not much. but as it moves into the northeast, we're going to start to see our winds increasing and also the rain chances increasing. locally, though, we have clouds around. this has nothing to do with the tropical weather. this is a different system. a few light showers moving through south jersey, but tonight we'll clear up a bit more. we have a tropical storm watch for much of the area. close to the jersey shore and delaware beaches for your labor day weekend. this just goes to show that we expect high winds. we expect rain, which could be heavy at times. as we go through saturday, sunday and possibly monday. the rip current threat has already been in the forecast for the weekend. it could very well extend through most of the beginning of
5:20 pm
next week as well. moderate to high risk. we expect rough seas, especially saturday, sunday and monday. so keep this in mind this weekend. we do expect, again, deteriorating conditions, especially closer to the shore and delaware beaches. for tonight, we're going to see clouds decrease across the area. for your friday, actually going to be a really nice day tomorrow. sunshine, highs around 80 degrees. the clouds move back in saturday. this is noon on saturday. the rain to our south, that is part of hermine. so saturday by noon, we could still be dry, north and west of philadelphia, south jersey, delaware starting to already possibly see rain and wind. the wind will be increasing especially sunday. sunday afternoon. so everyone may not see the rain. again, the track, once this storm makes landfall later tonight, the track may even change a little bit more. the intensity of the forecast may change, too, once it starts interacting with land. the computer models will pick up
5:21 pm
on it a little bit better. so for tomorrow, you'll want to stay tuned, because we'll have way more updates. conditions, though, locally, very nice. 81 degrees and sunny philadelphia. along the shore near 80 degrees. saturday we'll see the rain increasing, especially along the shore. temperatures dropping now to the 70s. take a look as we go through sunday, monday, tuesday. even as we go through the first half of next week, we could very well continue to see the storm system stalling offshore. so we could still have rain lingering at the shore for your labor day monday. so as of now, again, we have a lot of updates coming in. if we go through the day, we'll have more track updates later on tonight. we'll have another hurricane track update. but it is expected to make landfall tonight in the panhandle of florida. once it interacts with land it will be weakening and the computer models will get a better idea of what other weather systems will be steering it and a better location of the track. >> everyone has plans this weekend, whether they're going to be at the shore or made at
5:22 pm
america. so many people crowding ben franklin parkway, keep a close eye on this. >> exactly. the track of the storm will be determining our weekend forecast. that's why we have to pay such close attention to it. and of course, the intensity forecast as well. >> sheena, thank you so much. they call him the boss for a reason. he shows up, sometimes changes have to be made. in fact, one town decided bruce springsteen is worth an extra 15 minutes.

5:30 pm
tracking hurricane hermine. you can see the storm hovering near florida. it will eventually head toward our region after making landfall in florida's gulf coast overnight. in tampa, streets have already turned into ponds. as several inches of rain have fallen. some cars are trying to make it through the high water there. it is extremely dangerous. rough surf is churning up along the beaches. we have live first alert team coverage in the weather center tracking hermine and the impact the storm could have here this weekend. >> we begin with sheena parveen on where hermine is right now. >> hermine is still in the gulf of mexico. it is a category 1 hurricane. now we have the newest track from the national hurricane center. and it could get a little bit stronger before it makes landfall in the florida panhandle. it's continuing to move to the north-northeast 14 miles an hour. we expect by labor day weekend, all the way up the east coast, tropical storm watches and warnings. we have a tropical storm watch now for the jersey shore and the
5:31 pm
delaware beaches. that's going to run through sunday afternoon. we will be watching the timing of this very closely. we expect high winds, heavy rain for part of the area, too. make sure you stay tuned here, because we'll be updating this tonight and throughout the day tomorrow, of course, going into your weekend. it spins in the gulf of mexico, a lot of heavy rain bands now approaching the tampa bay area. there's actually a tornado warning now. that's what happens with a lot of hurricanes, if you're on the right side or north side of it, you end up getting severe weather with it. well defined eye of the hurricane, 115 miles from the tallahassee area, but closer to the coast there, that's where we expect it to be moving on land. and we just so happen to have buoy data near the storm. wave heights 25 feet in the gulf of mexico. winds gusting still near 60 miles an hour. it could strengthen a little bit more before it hits land. heavy rain bands moving up into
5:32 pm
the florida panhandle. also near the gainesville area. more heavy rain heading there. there's the tornado warning north of tampa, very heavy band of area heading toward the tampa area. buoy data close to the tampa area, winds gusting near 60 miles an hour. wave heights still around 11 feet. so again, this is a very strong storm. churning up the waters in the gulf of mexico. once it hits land, it will be weakening a bit, but it will also be heading toward our area. it will impact part of our weekend forecast. glenn "hurricane" schwartz has a closer look at the in you track. >> yes, sheena, in general, it's in the general direction of what the track looked like earlier, with some minor adjustments. one of the adjustments is to actually make it a stronger storm as it comes up into the mid-atlantic states. this is the latest radar picture. and you can see, that line that sheena is talking about, is getting close to tampa.
5:33 pm
they haven't even seen the worse of the rain yet. the storm surge, fortunately it's not very well populated here, because that storm surge is going to be devastating. 80-mile-an-hour winds as it goes inland tonight. only dropping to 60-mile-an-hour winds as it goes into south carolina. 50-mile-an-hour winds by saturday afternoon. and 60-mile-an-hour winds by sunday. now, how does that happen. it strengthens again. now, whether it's a tropical strengthening, or like a type of nor'easter strengthening, it's strengthening. and that means the winds are stronger, the waves are higher, and the problems last longer. the tropical storm watch is only through sunday, because they only issue them up through 72 hours. that doesn't mean the threat is over after sunday afternoon. because there it is on tuesday. still not that far offshore. remember, it's a big storm.
5:34 pm
and spinning those waters in, and it doesn't allow the waters to die down after the high tides. so each low tide doesn't go far down enough, the next high tide goes up even higher. the futurecast, saturday morning it should start off dry for that weekend, but heaviest rain, delaware beaches, south jersey, the lowest chance of rain, the least significant rain, north and west, lehigh valley, berks county, for example. there we are on sunday, the storm actually gets closer to the coast. so sunday is the heaviest rain. and the strongest wind. and this thing could be hanging around for a couple more days after that. >> so count on the nbc 10 app to track hurricane hermine this weekend. get live radar, the latest forecasts, and weather alerts for your neighborhood or your holiday destination. the app, of course, is a free download.

green, beckham will start at the receiver position. and really, it's the battle for the guys trying to make this team that we'll see tonight. one thing to watch around the nfl tonight is anyone else sitting for the national anthem. of course, colin kaepernick out of protest sat for the national anthem. take a look at what else he is doing. he has been wearing socks that depict police officers as pigs. and he released a statement saying that he condemns the police officers who have taken advantage of their positions, and that it makes other police officers who are just trying to do their jobs look bad. here is eagles coach doug pederson and his stance on his eagles and his players standing together for the national anthem. >> i can appreciate everybody's opinions, and i respect everybody's opinions. but at the same time, i feel it is important and it's obviously out of respect for the men and women of our country that sacrifice in order for us to coach and play this great game.
5:47 pm
so i get it. i understand it. but at the same time, i encourage everybody to stand. >> reporter: as i said, you see carson wentz, a live look at him warming up. and you see him running very well. look at him. the mobility. his arm strength. but he's just not a hundred percent for the eagles to put him out there tonight. we'll have a lot more coming up at 6:20. for now, live from the linc, i'm john clark, back to you. >> get much more information tonight at 6:30. the eagles' preseason kickoff, jets and eagles. and then the post-game show afterwards. good stuff to watch. well, our top headline, hurricane hermine. yes, it is a hurricane now. and we have to watch the track very closely, because our labor day weekend forecast depends heavily on the track of this storm.
5:48 pm
right now, it's in the gulf of mexico, category 1 hurricane. a weak category 1, but it could strengthen more before it makes landfall tonight in the florida panhandle. somewhere around the tallahassee area. it's moving to the north-northeast 14 miles an hour. so the speed is increasing. it will be moving onshore tonight, into early tomorrow, then crossing through parts of south carolina through friday. then it moves offshore into the weekend. but close enough to us to be affecting our labor day weekend forecast. so here's the updated track from the national hurricane center. there's sunday. there's monday. there's tuesday. we expect it to slow down as it moves offshore. so expect the rip current risks to stay high. also, it could be giving us pretty windy conditions at the shore, and the delaware beaches. and also some heavy rain. so i'll show you that in just a minute. but we do expect the heaviest rain and windiest conditions at the shore. so now we look at your labor day weekend forecast. here's how we've changed it based on the track of the storm. we could see some rain starting later in the afternoon saturday.
5:49 pm
mostly for south jersey and delaware. temperatures, we have dropped them into the 70s because of the wind direction. more cloud cover through sunday. again, this heavily depends on the track of the storm. we expect more updates tonight at 11:00. also as we go through the day tomorrow, any track changes we'll be updating this as well. as we go into monday, that does look like a better day for the beaches. but remember, the rip current risk is still going to stay very high. so dangerous rip currents at the shore. that's another concern that we're watching saturday, sunday and monday. also, tomorrow, moderate to high risk there. very rough seas. we will be watching this storm closely as it relates to your weekend forecast. for now, though, we have a few light showers around the area. we'll see skies clearing out tonight. and then we go into friday. really nice day tomorrow. then there's a look at saturday. so far, the computer models showing the rain moving into south jersey. new jersey and delaware seeing the most rain, the most wind,
5:50 pm
and now we're looking at sunday. sunday, rain in parts of new jersey, and delaware. some of this could move as far inland as philadelphia. maybe farther north and west. but it depends on where the center of this storm is. the storm has not made landfall yet. it will make landfall tonight in florida. then after that, we'll be watching for any track changes. because, of course, that depends where the moisture's going to be and the highest wind speeds. the intensity forecast we'll get updates throughout tonight and through the day tomorrow. what you can expect as of now. this is subject to change. afternoon rain new jersey and delaware for saturday. spreading inland later saturday night. how far inland, again, is going to be drld by the track of the storm. sunday, heavy rain at times. mostly new jersey and delaware. highest winds at the shore. that's where we have a tropical storm watch right now. and for monday, we expect some rain lingering at the shore. and gradual clearing as well. but it will be windy. now, here's a tropical storm watch. beaches and delaware in sussex
5:51 pm
county, all of cape may county, through sunday. so far tropical conditions possible. those would be wind gusts near 50 miles an hour, or greater. so we will be watching that very closely for any updates. currently, the clouds starting to clear north and west of philadelphia. the rain going with it. but as we go into tomorrow, even more clearing. so here's your forecast as we go through tomorrow. temperatures around 80 degrees. it's going to be a really nice day tomorrow. you would never know that we have a tropical system heading our way. we'll see low humidity in the forecast, too. temperatures in robbinsville 82 degrees. wilmington 80 degrees tomorrow. we'll continue with the nice conditions throughout tomorrow evening. but it is the weekend forecast, again, that we'll be watching very closely. so more updates coming up on nbc 10 news at 6:00. coming up next, we'll have another track update, too, as we go later into the evening. the work is far from easy, and it's taking several days.
