6:17 pm
surface of that water, it's really churning and we're getting high clouds because of irma even though the center is 740 miles from us right now. this is just a humongous storm. the next one we're watching is jose. that's not that far off the coast. 650 miles off miami. 615 miles off the north carolina coast. it's not moving fast. that's a good thing. but it's not that far away. 50-mile-an-hour tropical storm in georgia now moving toward the northwest over the next few days and then starting to make a little bit of a turn. now it puts more moisture in our direction. now with jose, the various tracks, well, there's a lot of agreement and the curve over the next several days, that's
6:18 pm
september 16th. that's saturday. and heading towards the bahamas. after that, there's quite a variety of possibilities. ranging from florida all the way out to bermuda. there's a lot of uncertainty with the track once we get past saturday. some of them do take it offshore, along the east coast. so close enough and then we'll have to monitor that as we go through the next several days. jose has 100-mile-an-hour winds right now and the official forecast does take it closer to the united states and the european model, which was the best by far with irma, and with harvey, this is the forecast here as we go through the 13th, the 16th and now we're talking into next week. but that is not that far offshore. so we have to watch it because
6:19 pm
there is a big range of possibilities that far in advance. here's what we get close by. just some of the high clouds later on tonight and especially tomorrow. no rain anywhere nearby tomorrow. and then here comes some showers on wednesday. that is some of the moisture that is left over from irma. it's not torrential rain. we don't have any kind of threat of flooding. we may have more showers coming in on thursday. you don't see big thunderstorms. tomorrow, it's a nice day. we have at least partly cloudy skies. we're not expecting rain. temperatures are not bad. and for the rest of the week, what are we expecting? the average high temperatures are around 80 and we're fairly close to it, maybe a little above it, with just chances of showers each afternoon wednesday through friday in the philadelphia area. allentown, also wildwood. temperatures are close to normal
6:20 pm

6:25 pm
field. nelson agholor, amazing. wentz says his confidence is great. >> it's cool, you know. it comes in with a team victory. that's the most important thing. my focus is about giving all i can to win games and those plays put us in a position to win games. that's my mind set. you need more of those. the more of those, the better opportunity that the team has to win the games. >> undefeated, that would be guy. flyers opened up rookie camp today. nolan patrick was seen here skating in vorhees. he begins his push to make this flyers roster. >> the main thing for me is to compete as heart as i can every day. i think that's something that the team likes and that's something i pride myself on. i'm going to try to focus on it.
