7:56 am
krystal. >> looking at radar and satellite you can see that the center of the storm still in north carolina, starting to creep off the shore here and then you have the bulk of the rain that's pushing through parts of virginia and up through maryland into the southern parts of delaware. this is a light to moderate rain, heaviest stuff is mostly off the coastline at this point, but what we are looking at as this system continues to track on to the northeast meaning it will be getting closer to us, that's going to push those bigger waves our way and that means water moving inland, the threat of coastal flooding will continue starting this evening but focus sunday, monday even into your tuesday. here is the labor day weekend forecast for you, temperatures as we move along will be mostly in the 70s across the board, notice if you are in areas like the suburbs, lehigh valley, partly cloudy then cloudy conditions for the next several days, not looking as heavy rain as we expect in south jersey, new jersey and delaware. especially heavy sunday but that will continue into your monday as well.
7:57 am

8:04 am
it could restrengthen into hurricane status by tuesday morning with winds up near 75 miles per hour. we have a dip in the jet stream. that will lock this storm in place and keep it out over the water. all of this water is going to get pushed onshore. that is why there is a threat for coastal flooding because of the storm surge. we are looking at the storm close enough to produce gusty winds from ocean city, maryland to ocean city, new jersey and in nantucket with winds gusting up to 40 to 60 miles per hour as we continue through labor day and through tuesday across long island. again with the water pushing onshore, we could have storm surge up to 2 to 4 feet. you add 2 to 4 feet on top of the astronomical high tide. as for rain, most of the heavy rain will continue near virginia and north carolina. as we go into the rest of the holiday weekend, we are not looking at a lot of rain in new
