5:14 pm
it's not going to be the destructive rain. it will be the type of rain showers we're used to that come and go. no total washout. we have those clouds out there. and the system that once was irma. 78 right now in philadelphia. winds out of the southwest at 5. we're going to be in that pattern where we are close to where we should be this time of year. especially the southerly winds kind of warming us up a little bit. it's 80 in allentown. 75 in wilmington. if you're in vineland, 75 to you. 75 in atlantic city. even mount pocono at 72. doppler radar is sweeping the sky. we have to move over to southern parts of pennsylvania and northern parts of maryland to be able to seat the first of the showers making their way in our direction. you can already see the cloud
5:15 pm
sheer. and all of that is going to work in here. i showed you how wide this storm system has become. so tomorrow morning you wake up and clouds will be in place. e we will see periods of showers and even isolated thunderstorms moving through the area. more showers through the area. but none of this is a total solid green with the big streaks of yellow. that indicates we'll have scattered showers on and off. even on friday and even into very early on saturday morning. . so how much? there you go. not a whole lot in the forecast models. probably less than a half inch. if you're under a thunderstorm, you can pick up a little more than that. this is not a washout for us. everybody has been watching jose. hurricane jose was a major hurricane expected to fully stay out to sea and it still may.
5:16 pm
it may even take a run at bermuda. take a look at what it's doing. gearing off to the north, that's the track right now in the cone. it is all over the place. we have seen models that take it to the mainland, models that take it out to sea. 75 miles an hour, it's expected to maybe downgrade to a tropical storm and then back up to a hurricane. we'll watch it simply because the steering mechanism, the high pressure to the north doesn't come into play until this weekend. so it could make its way close to the peninsula. all of the forecast models are pretty much in agreement with going up to the north. there's one outliar that brings it into philadelphia. the united kingdom model take it is into florida. so we still have a little bit of disagreement. it's the main cone that stays out to. we'll keep an eye on this to see if it's going to be a rainmaker for us early or the mid-part of next week. at this point, it is still a hurricane that is in the
5:17 pm
atlantic and not be boltering us this weekend or anybody else. so if it you're in fair mont, you could see a few showers. langhorn at 78. isolated shower. you'll see 78. we go to long port. 76 and in dover 79 again carry the umbrella because you may be under one of those passing showers or maybe not. your ten-day on 10:00. 79 for tomorrow with a chance of rain. 83 on thursday. 82 on friday. perhaps some showers on saturday. i'm thinking it's early. we go into sunday and get our sunshine back. it's lovely there. monday at 78 with sunshine. 80 on tuesday. much of next week will be very pleasant. unless and here's the big unless. we end up seeing some remnant rain from jose. if you're going to the temple game on friday night, pass the rain slicker. we're looking at the 70s with a chance of a shower or

more evidence and refile and try again. >> does this have any impact on the civil side of this case. >> there was a settlement already. if they are not covered by that settlement, they would have the right to sue in a different court. . so they absolutely have all of their civil rights intact. >> laura, thank you for being here. we appreciate your insight. a bit of a right-hand turn now to porn and a presidential candidate. senator ted cruz trending on twitter a after his account liked a pornographic tweet. the whole thing quickly spread across social media. cruz says a staffer inadvertently liked that tweet and his office was still discuss ing whether that staff member would lose access to the twitter account. governor christie's beach trip during a budget impact is making headlines yet again in a new tv

5:34 pm
this is moving through the united states. now you can see it's disorganized and looks like a giant storm system that would cross the country. that's the type we see. that's because it doesn't really have any tropical components any longer. the center of rotation is spread out so broadly it covers 11 or 12 states. how much rain, look at this dark blue and the shades of gray and black. right down there near jacks jacksonville. . some of the areas the average accumulation was nine inches but some picking up 10 or 11. so massive flooding into georgia and south carolina. and that's why it is so important that all those people heeded the warning and took shelter immediately to get out of harm's way with all of this. now all eyes are on jose. jose was a major hurricane in the wake of this hurricane that we're still dealing with. i got to tell you it's going to probably move out into the atlantic. there are a few forecast models that want to bring it a little closer to land this is the peak
5:35 pm
of hurricane season. so we have to pay attention to any system out there and right now it does have 75 mile an hour winds. it's expected to weaken and still stay a category 1 storm. some of the forecast models bring it closer to the united states or over florida. the consensus is generally offshore. we're still a week away from this getting too close to us. so we will be revisiting it every single day. now here's a a look at some of the stories making headlines county by county across our region today. a man facing charges after authorities seized more than $a 15,000 and a stash of drugs. police arrested daryl and a search ub covered 55 bricks of heroin, 70 grams of crack cocaine. he's facing possession with b sbept to distribute and other charges. staying in mercer county, more trouble with the law for a woman.
