>> yeah. we'll start with the view of the satellite and radar. the winds are not going to be as strong as they were yesterday. you can see why because the rain bands is now a little farther to our east. i measured out it's about 215 miles away. there is the center of jose. rain is clipping over parts of massachusetts and everywhere else really dealing with clouds as you go up into new england. jose, where it is sitting now is going to kind of stay there. what i mean by that is it is going to rotate around lurking off the coast but leaving us with the ability to dry out. no rain in the forecast today. we will see minor coastal flooding. gusts about 20 to 30 miles per hour not really an issue. rip current and decreased from yesterday about 5 to 10 feet. it is still rough seas.
it lets people know the best option probably for the next several days. we are shifting gears. this is a look at hurricane maria. let's talk about current conditions. winds are at 140 miles per hour. that just came out at 11:00 a.m. you can see the track update. it is updating our system while we are on air. through thursday it will start to move to the northwest and then starting to drive along the east coast this weekend. we'll talk more about that coming up in a few minutes. >> thanks for that. puerto rico's governor is warning maria is the most catastrophic storm to hit the island in a century. we continue with pamela osborne who is monitoring the news and images coming from the island.

seeing this morning is beach erosion even though jose is still more than 100 miles offshore. you would still see people sunbathing on this beach. co completely covered by water. you can see how much of the dunes has been eaten away by the power of the surf. the power of the ocean fuelled by tropical storm jose sending big waves crashing into onlookers here at north wild wood. the storm remains well offshore but rough surf continues for the fourth straight day. it is good news for daredevil surfers. this section of beach totally consumed by water, erosion a problem up and down the jersey shore. >> we usually sit right out there. that's where we sit. we usually come down the ramp
and there's no beach. >> there's no beach at all. >> up early to watch the sunrise over the angry atlantic. she got a bit wet. >> a very healthy respect for the ocean. >> vacationers hoping jose moves along quickly so they can finish the summer in peace. >> it is the water. >> reporter: evening tide later tonight. they point to sandy as being worse. they say it could take a lot of sand to get beaches back to normal for next season nbc 10 news. >> all right.

another student rally, this is after the discovery of racial slurs written on the wall at a campus storm. three times students discovered the slurs with the words go away scribbled onto the doors of dorm rooms. it appears to be targeting african american students. students we spoke with tell us they are furious these threats will not be tolerated. >> i am out raraged by the derogatory comments left on the young lady's door. i feel it needs to be addressed. >> we are asking the faculty to give us anything they know, anything to put this to rest. >> to counter the hate speech
students put up posters and signs in the dorms. they are countering the words of hate with words of love. all right. we are starting to look at our radar and satellite. you can see we are kind of split. some of us are looking nice this morning. scattered clouds and sunshine out there. some of us are fairly cloudy. that is up along the jersey shore coastline and then the rain itself has since moved out. there is the center of jose. hanging out in one spot. it will continue in this location. it's not going to move a lot. you can see the rain bands are extending into parts of massachusetts right now. it will be continuing throughout today. they are stretching hundreds of miles to the north. let's take a look. based off of the information sent out by the national hurricane center. it's a tropical storm right now.
jose is going to kind of like i mentioned do a little loop here. here is the track, hard to follow. through your thursday or friday and moving back to the exact same spot it is currently in. while we will stay dry across our area, rough seas are likely to stick around as we go through the next several days. take a look at the feature wind gust forecast. we go now through 5:00 p.m. still breezy to windy conditions. it is breezy as well inland. they won't be as strong as they were yesterday. by tomorrow morning at 9:00 a.m. really not a problem at all. a little breezy at the shore but that's about it. we are at 79 in philadelphia. this is what i was talking about. some of us still have clouds scattered. a lot of us seeing blue skies. we are at 76 in new jersey and 80 in delaware. highs for today will make their
way into about the mid-80s for us. it is 84 in philly and 82 in new jersey with a mix of clouds and sunshine. we are shifting gears. jose is tropical storm maria. a major hurricane at that. it is now lingering over puerto rico. it will start to make it off land here as we start to continue throughout today. as we go with the 140 miles per hour winds to the northwest watch the track here. this is the latest track from the national hurricane center. drive it up the east coast. this is now all the way from saturday, sunday and monday. it is still projected as a category 2 hurricane. it starts to hook up and run parallel to the east coastline. could it do something similar to what jose did? it 86 tomorrow. we stay droo into your weekend.

it had something like 14 or -- you know, a situation. >> and understand that there's still a discovery period here and figure out who the rotation is going to be. it would figure in eagles really didn't have any of that on sunday. they did in washington. now, this week tough match-up against a big massive new york giants interior defensive front. >> speaking of that, i hate to call the guy out because he is one of my guys. but i felt bad for him. i felt like with so many passes he was placed in a tough spot. >> he is struggling. eagles expect a big jump from ie zac
-- isaac. on sunday i don't know which way the eagles will go there. >> we have to point out the defense. we were talk about this during the break. they will be favored, right? >> yes. >> it is a lot more than we expected. >> how do you handle that situation? how do you hand l prosperity? how do you hand l the opportunity on sunday to really deliver a death nail to the new york giants. it would be very difficult for the giants to overcome. this is a game that shows how far this team has come in terms of maturity in handling a crowd that will be bongers. beautiful day, great environment. >> i expected the team would be 1-1 after two games. here is what i didn't expect in the delaware valley. this looks like the best team in the division. >> it's wide open. >> it's not wide open. >> the best quarterback.

up the surf here. the rip current is still with us. krystal klei is tracking both jose and maria, krystal. >> yeah. we'll begin locally. this is the satellite view and what we are seeing is a much better picture than yesterday. clouds over this little area from atlantic city north and east. for many of us we are seeing sunshine and scattered clouds overhead. still a little breezy and that's because it isn't too far away from us. it is kind of lurking off to the east of us. that's where it will stay. you can see the rain bands are stretching north hitting land across massachusetts but otherwise no rain for us. it is just clouds that we are seeing right now. if we look at our storm impacts we have dropped them down from mid-level to more on the low end here. isolated shower is possible but otherwise minor coastal flooding and a beach erosion to occur.
winds 20 to 30 miles per hour. we experience this from time to time. the focus is shifting gears to rough seas and everything else is starting to improve just a little. it will be rough waters for a few more days thanks to jose. now we are looking at hurricane maria. maria made land fall and is moving right on through puerto rico. it will start to move off land and it will begin hooking up to the north. take a look at the latest track update. wind speeds at 140 miles per hour here. it dropped dune bit from when it made land fall. it is likely to stay a category 4 hurricane right on through into the weekend, probably a category 3. we'll talk about how it could effect us coming up in a few minutes. >> thanks. a reporter from our sister station is in san juan puerto rico right now. we show you the conditions there

winds are expected to last until tomorrow. that's latest. back to you. we have more new video into our news room. you can see heavy rain whipping around and the wind causing flooding in the streets. hurricane maria expected to with life threatening winds for hours. >> i have been trying to get in contact with a local woman in puerto rico right now. her phone is going straight to voice mail. i imagine many phones are as communications have been in and out as maria barrels through. this is the latest piece of video posted by nbc news reporter. the man you see there in the dark was telling people at the roberto coliseum the winds they
experiencing will last for another ten hours. after the power went out and roof started leaking people sought refuj there. they huddled as the storm whipped around them. when the storm made land fall people prayed together. since then the winds have become so strong it ripped some of the doors off of their frame. you can hear the winds howling there in that video. these are clips from mike who is held up on the northern side of the island. it sits right up against the atlantic ocean. from the looks of it no place is safe. trees and other structured ripped the shreds as bands of winds and rain swirled around. it rattled the walls of the hotel lobby. the windows are being blown in by maria's sheer force.

we are starting to see more people walking back after high tide. speaking of the rough surf it is a great day to take a surf board into the water. all of the erosion is eating away at beaches. last flignight it caused minor street flooding here. hoping jose moves along real quickly. >> we usually sit right out there. that's where we sit. we usually come down the ramp and now there's no beach. there's no beach at all. >> reporter: just saw crews starting to head this way to try to shore up the sand dunes. the high tide was just before 9:00. that water is beginning to stretch back into the ocean. we are starting to see more people on the beach. there will be another high tide this evening. i'm randy, nbc 10 news.

about 215 miles from us. that's where it is going to stay for the next several days. this is the latest report. 70 miles per hour winds moving to the northeast at 8 miles per hour. watch the track here as we go through the next several days. so this is through thursday. you can see it is driving farther away from us. that means improving conditions as we go through your thursday. as we go friday into saturday it will loop right back around and start to weaken entirely. when you see that little l it means it is still just a low pressure center. storm, showers associated with it. it is literally back to where it is right now right on through saturday. we are not done with jose yet. by early next week it could sling a little moisture meaning we may see showers monday or tuesday. as for the winds we go throughout your daytime hours. gusts 25 to 30 miles per hour. it looks like breezy inland but not nearly as wind fy as
