somewhere along the east coast next week, we're talking got the middle of next week, and depending on which way it goes, it could have a large or a small impact on our weather. but that's not going to be affecting us over the weekend at all. this is a totally different system than that hurricane, maybe a little bit brighter weather on sunday, allowing temperatures to get in the 70s, but that's the best we can do. >> construction years in the making after a pair of disasters destroyed a jersey shore landmark. >> next nbc 10 new jersey shore reporter ted greenberg explains why someone has stopped the project in its tracks.
