krystal klei is here. >> hermine is not affecting us in a way we were projecting a few days ago. that is from hermine, but you see the rain itself is off the coastline. this is going to still generate those large swells, which leads to still a threat for rip currents as well as that rough surf, and as a result of a lot of areas not suggesting that you get into the water today or even the next couple days probably because of the rough surf. but let's talk about that forecast and what happened with hermine. we've been saying this for the last 24 hours, we saw hermine just not making that turn like previously suggested. we were talking a lot of models showing that hermine was going to make more of a sharp turn our direction.
that did not happen. she slowed to 3-mile-per-hour movement, which is very slow this morning. take a look at this. we've got those bands of heavy rain. they're about 75 miles outside of atlantic city. that is not a very large distance that we're looking at. meaning that as projected, if she'd been a little closer, that heavy rain would have been right over the shoreline. that's why previously we were looking at potentially one to three inches of rain, and then as we started to see her stay farther to sea, we pulled back on the forecast. not a big difference between rain, clouds, and sunshine. this was a tight gradient for us. and that meant that any movement from hermine was really going to affect the forecast. good news, though, really for us, as you see, because as a result we are dealing with the heavy downpour on labor day. more about the current projected track, and more on temperatures warming up in just a bit. >> hermine may be far offshore, but the storm still poses a risk

crowded. restaurant reservations have been pretty easy. we feel bad for the businesses. >> is it a missed opportunity? yes, it is. >> reporter: this guy owns a newer shop that makes all sorts of european breakfast creations and they counted on a big holiday weekend. honestly, the owner isn't exactly happy with all the weather forecast that scared people away, but he says he totally gets it. better safe than sorry. >> it looked like an overreaction. but if things had really turned out, then what would we have said? >> reporter: there's a tiny bit of cleanup after the wind and rain, but it could have been a whole lot worse at the beaches. today, we were with the head of the rehoboth beach control as he assessed the conditions. he made the call to lock up the ocean. anyone swimming will be told to get out. >> it's dangerous for them. because this type of wave is so strong that it will knock the kid down, actually drag them back out to sea. >> reporter: starting tomorrow, it's going to be a much smaller crew of life guards here in rehoboth. if you really do want to swim in the ocean and they allow you to do so, do some homework. fi
find out where the life guards are going to be and swim in front of them. if you don't, you're taking your life into your own hands. it's dangerous out there. >> good advice. people in cape cod are waiting to see what hermine brings to the new england coast this week. yesterday was a picture-perfect day with a steady breeze, and many people packed the beaches for one last day before getting ready for hermine or getting out of town. forecasters are predicting strong wind gusts, more than two inches of rain, and minor coastal flooding. so florida now. it's cleanup time following hermine. yesterday, governor rick scott toured some of the most damaged areas in central florida. hermine made landfall in tallahassee friday morning. emergency officials say nearly 750 homes were placed under mandatory evacuations, and 15 people are being housed in a shelter. keep track of hermine this labor day holiday by keeping a hold of the nbc 10 app. check out our interactive radar and the forecast for your neighborhood.

issues that led to the deadly flooding. now your nbc 10 first alert weather. >> and let's talk more about tracking hermine. first off, let's talk about what we're seeing right now. so, where we're seeing hermine, that's the path she's taken so far. out to sea, currently winds at 70 miles per hour, moving now to the northwest, that's a big change now starting to see that curve a little better. earlier, we were seeing movement to the north. so now starting to pull back closer to land. and a little faster than this morning. six miles per hour instead of three. i want to explain why this could have been a crucial situation for us and why we had that forecast out and made the necessary changes as this track started to change. we said it was all about the track here. there's where she is. saturday morning, that's where hermine was projected to be centered by today. you can see that difference. remember, just a few minutes ago, i was talking, those heavier bands of rain 75 miles out. that's the difference right
there. so that would have been the difference with us seeing the heavy rain and the stronger winds. again, that was the projected track as of saturday morning. by sunday, we saw that it was not going to be happening, which is why we changed the forecast. now hermine out a little farther, meaning not looking to affect us quite as completely. but the latest update on hermine now making that change to the northwest has changed her projected path. so take a look here. monday night, really starting to curve closer to land. this doesn't look like it will be as much of a threat to us in terms of more flooding, heavier rain, higher winds. but it could start to affect areas like boston, cape cod, into parts of rhode island and even eastern long island. take a look at this. look how far in the track is now suggesting that hermine goes. now, the good news is the winds are going to start to weaken. at 65 miles per hour by tuesday morning. but that track now projecting the cone moving right over some parts of land. so this is the potential movement. something we'll have to watch if
she continues to curve to the northwest. this is at 8:00 a.m. wednesday, but notice the drop in winds. now at 45 miles per hour, so we're falling out of that tropical storm forecast that continues to drop along to 40 miles per hour at 8:00 a.m. on your thursday here, and that's when it will completely move off to sea. but there is some focus now, a little farther to the northeast of us, where land may see a bigger impact if hermine does push closer in, that could lead to more serious flooding in those locations. looking at your current advisories in place, coastal flood advisory is still in place for us. so we are still looking at the possibility, especially with high tide hitting right around 11:00 a.m. along the jersey shore, delaware beaches, that we could see some of that coastal flooding. now more at the low to moderate level, more likely we would see some minor flooding in areas with the swells from hermine still pushing water inland. the bigger threat still in place, rip current, high risk for dangerous rip currents. rough surf today, tuesday
potentially even through your wednesday. so that means that getting in the water still not a good idea around our shore points. looking at your temperatures here, 73 at mount pocono right now. potstown at 75. that's the same for philadelphia. some of us should increase to the low to mid 80s. here's your neighborhood forecast. temperatures this afternoon, 85 center city. notice we're looking at sun mixing with some clouds pretty much across the board here. the suburb, westchester, 83, lands dale at 84. into the lehigh valley, the mid 80s. also looking at mostly just sunshine. maybe a little more cloud cover new jersey through the shore, where we are looking not necessarily at rain, but more clouds. 83 ocean city. wilmington at 82. we'll get to the ten-day in just a bit. >> thanks, crystal. attention, expectant parents. a new study says you could predict a child's risk for developing asthma while still in the womb. we'll explain coming up.
try to contain local spread of the virus. it's not clear if it's the same strain that caused at least two outbreaks in florida. the size of a fetus during early pregnancy may determine that child's risk of developing asthma. british researchers used ultrasound on 2,000 pregnant women to track fetal growth. children with a smaller fetal size during the first and second trimesters had an increased risk of asthma between the ages of 5 and 15. larger fetuses were at a reduced risk of asthma and had better lung function. cruising into trouble, passengers on one ship got a rough ride all thanks to hermine. we'll hear from one local man who's onboard, coming up. it's called the holiday creep. stores offering christmas deals ahead of labor day. we'll look at why it starts to look a lot like christmas earlier than ever before.
hermine may be traveling farther out to sea, but the storm still poses risks for strong rip currents down the shore today. nbc 10 in ocean city, cape may county, where you can see the warning signs out there. many people still trying to salvage what's left of the holiday weekend by getting out on the boardwalk. the same rip current risk forced beach patrol crews in rehoboth to lock up the ocean, at least for the morning. but overall, no major problems from hermine, just the minor erosion and cleanup from the wind and rain in some spots. krystal is here with the forecast. >> she's making that now pronounced turn to the northwest that we've been waiting for. that has now happened. and as a result, we're seeing projections for maybe more of an effect to land a little farther to the northeast of us.
so what we're seeing currently is cloud cover that's moving through parts of new jersey, scattered in delaware, and then into pennsylvania, a good mix of sun and clouds. rain obviously is going to stay off to sea here. but take a look, if we just track a little farther to the north, around cape cod, boston still thick cloud coverage, but we're starting to see scattered showers move through. and it does appear that over the next couple of days, they may see a larger effect from hermine now. this is a bit of a shift in the forecast, now making her way closer to land than out to sea. this is expected to only last for around 24 to 48 hours, as we start to see that more obvious shift back out to sea. for us, though, here's your temperature. we're at 75 degrees in philadelphia. 78 in parts of the suburbs. low 70s in new jersey and mid 70s from the lehigh valley through delaware. these temperatures won't be bumping up a ton more. we're talking some of us low 80s. others up into the mid 80s
today. really turning out to be a nice labor day for many locations. that mix of cloud and sun out there at 85 this afternoon in philadelphia. also in the mid 80s for the suburbs. a little lower in parts of new jersey, the lehigh valley, and delaware. so we are looking at temperatures today in the 80s. but that will be changing more on 90s returning in a bit. hermine is still churning in the atlantic and bringing a dangerous storm surge to the northeast. gabe gutierrez reports. >> reporter: right now, hermine is meandering, there's a tropical storm warning in effect for this area, not expecting rain, but strong winds and rip currents, keeping swimmers out of the water on this labor day. after slogging through the south and the mid-atlantic, this morning hermine is spinning off the northeast coast, kicking up dangerous waves and rip currents. >> the pace of the storm is even slower than they predicted, so
we can imagine that some of these effects will last now through wednesday. >> reporter: long island under threat of storm surges. this the view from a cruise ship anthem of the seas. from new jersey to delaware to maryland, the dangerous conditions keeping swimmers out of the water, even with sunny skies sunday. >> people really didn't think it was going to be this nice, but as you can see, it's definitely not a day to go swimming. >> reporter: in ocean city after saturday's washout, the financial hit already stinging on this labor day. ice cream shop owner george mccrory estimates hermine cost him 80% of his weekend business. >> we usually get the crowd before school starts. so it's a big deal. but you can't fight mother nature. >> reporter: virginia hit hard by weekend flooding. and after hermine made landfall in florida friday, authorities there are still surveying the damage as the storm's torrential
rain led to swollen rivers and new flooding sunday. hermine's aftermath not over. at least two deaths have been blamed on hermine. one in florida. the other one in north carolina over the weekend. some coastal communities now preparing for the possibility of coastal flooding and other tourists are trying to make the best of this labor day. gabe gutierrez, nbc news, mo montauk, new york. >> some passengers set sail for what they thought was a beautiful labor day weekend cruise. some people from our area were aboard royal caribbean's anthem of the seas. that ship taking off from new jersey and had to sail around hermine to get to bermuda. we talked to robert mchugh, a point pleasant man who was with 75 friends and family going to a wedding. during the facetime interview yesterday, he told me a lot of people were not feeling well because of seasickness. but he said things could have been much worse. >> it's not like it was a
category five hurricane or anything. you know, it was a storm with some tropical force winds, right? >> the anthem of the seas is no stranger to rough waters. the trip got caught in a violent storm in february. it caused damage on the boat and the captain had to reroute the cruise from the bahamas back to the u.s. passengers there received full refunds. keep track of hermine this labor day weekend with the nbc 10 app. check out the interactive radar and the forecast for your neighborhood. happening right now, eagles coach doug pederson is holding a news conference in south philadelphia. this is a live look. he just announced carson wentz will start as quarterback next sunday now that sam bradford has been traded to the vikings. we'll monitor the news conference and let you know what else coach pederson had to say. philadelphia police have a murder suspect now in custody accused of running over a woman with a car, and then beating her

experiences. >> i think it's a great thing for anyone who's ever said, what should we do this weekend? open the book, and do it. >> okay, thanks for joining us. if you want more information on how to get the book, we posted a link on our nbc 10 mobile app. irene is also holding several upcoming book events, including on saturday from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. next tuesday, september 13th from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. at the local author book fair, at the katz jcc in cherry hill. september 15th, 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. and thursday at 7:20 p.m. in elkin's park. now your nbc 10 first alert weather. >> continuing to look at hermine here, you see that we still have all the rain, pockets of heavier rain, some of the bands you see out farther to the northeast of us. but all of it offshore. we're dealing with the cloud coverage today. now starting to see some of that
rain clipped into parts of cape cod. let's talk about the track of hermine. you see the blue line. that's the track. this is a little time lapse of its movement over the last several days here. we watched right there the slowdown that happened over the weekend. now it has made that big turn. we've seen hermine start to make the turn back to land. now seeing more of a threat to land, but that would be to the northeast of us, not necessarily in our area. we are still looking at threats that are mostly on the lower side. so rain. start off with that. not likely for us today. maybe some spotty showers your tuesday. we'll get to that in a moment. tidal flooding. we're looking at a minor threat. we haven't seen a lot of this issue, but with high tide just hitting right now, some areas may feel the effects. maybe some of those low-lying points along the shore at a minor threat. winds at the shore. going with gusts up to about 30
miles per hour for later today. and then those winds will kind of hold in the breezy to windy category into your tuesday. but rip currents still at a very high threat, meaning going into the water still a bad idea. and beach erosion in a minor to moderate threat, we have already seen some beach erosion in some of those shore points as well as along the jersey shore. if this had been just a little closer track, which earlier models were projecting, that rain would have been over us. instead, it's out to sea and it is clipping areas to the northeast of us. we move this throughout the rest of your day, through 9:00, still going to be out to sea. cloud coverage mostly just hanging along the shore. a lot of points going to see a mix of sunshine. this continues to swirl out well to the east of us. but rain moving over long island. these bands are trying to get close. not necessarily making it to us. that's tuesday morning. notice we get some spottiness moving through pretty quickly
tuesday afternoon along the shore. some spot chances of rain there. but again, not going to move over us through the next couple of days. temperature trends, though, that's something to talk about. because once hermine starts to move out wednesday into thursday, temperatures bump up. one, two, three days in the 90s. another heat wave on the board. philadelphia. also looking at those three days in the 90s for dover, allentown even, up to 92 your thursday, friday. check out wildwood here. we see a little dip in temperatures, but even into the mid 80s through your friday. so that forecast, it really does shift from talking about a tropical system to talking about the heat. there's a look at your seven-day forecast. 90s through your saturday. as we finish off your weekend into next week, back to the 80s.
♪ i had an injury to my neck. it wasn't as serious injury it was a herniated disc. anything that could go wrong went wrong. i've been in the hospital twenty three times since. the bills started to pile up. i had nothing to give. we had nothing in the refrigerator. i would be dead and not sitting here right now if it wasn't for pond lehocky.
working families from all over the area are celebrating a day off at the 29th annual tristate labor day parade in penn's landing. the parade started at the local 19 union hall, and the family fun also included food, games, crafts, kids' activities and live music. a first pitch flip from gold medal olympic gymnast laurie hernandez. the new jersey native threw out the first pitch at last night's
mets game at citi field. she showed off her front flip before the throw, a gymnastic trick that won her silver on the balance beam at the rio games. krystal is back with a final check of your forecast. hermine just keeps moving offshore. >> we're looking at that forecast affecting our area, but not necessarily a direct impact. the rain is offshore still at this point. hermine has made a little turn now to the northwest, which we were expecting to happen. let's take a look at your radar. you can see that there's where the rain is. it's still off the coast from us, but it is starting to clip parts of cape cod as well as nearing long island, the eastern most portion. so those areas could see more of an effect to land, especially with some of the coastal flooding. that's something we'll have to watch out for there. >> some rip current risks. >> yeah, for us, that's going to be the next couple days at least. >> okay. thanks, krystal. thanks for watching. for all of us here at nbc 10, have a great labor day. - welcome to the "nbc primetime preview" show,
