can mean for us. doug? doug: it looks like it will become a hurricane before it makes landfall a little bit after midnight tonight. the satellite images the past hour or so show big clumps of thunderstorms breaking up but more of the heavy actions on the east side of the storm but sure seems the big ben coastal area of florida after midnight tonight will get the direct hit with hurricane force winds and then it's going to track to the east and then offshore it looks. if you remember yesterday, the official track was further inland and every little bit it continues to stay offshore the better it will help us. but the big bend of florida, they're under hurricanes warnings tonight. we'll get a better idea from diane gallagher from florida. diane: drop tall storm hermine could be hurricane hermine by the time it makes landfall after midnight tonight. >> it will hit most of the northern part of the state and see a lot of rain in the southeast side of this storm. diane: the

there will be effects on the coastal sections but we'll get a bit of an easy break and maybe showers and breezes but generally pretty good. this is the futurecast looking at this computer model, keeping the most intense precipitation to the southeast and be right at the edge of the steady rain. the winds, the strongest activity will be along the coastlines and then eventually ull out. when you get to the yellow that's a tropical depression with 30-mile-per-hour winds. there at 4:30, there's the wind field and then we get to saturday morning and then the steady, heavier winds are well to the southeast of our area and pulls out from there. a lot more to explain about this, weather impasse and what the beaches will be like and what you need to know as you plan for your labor day weekend forecast in a few minutes. >> thank for you that. to the west, hurricane madeleine has been downgraded to a tropical storm but hawaii is bracing for the worst.

at noon. on your side. jummy: the redskins won their last preseason game 20-13 in tampa but today all the talk is about a playbook found in the garbage at a hotel near treaning -- training camp. our sam sweeney is live with this one. who would leave their training book behind? sam: big mistake, jummy, this story will have a lot of people talking. here is how it unfolded. a man named josh who lives in ashburn is cleaning out his truck and throwing something in a dumpster and walks over and throws and sees something that looks like the redskins colors so he goes to investigate. it turns out to be a backpack. he opens up the backpack and he finds the defensive playbook from the redskins training camp. take a look at these tweets. this all unfolded and we found out about the story from the junkie's radio show on 106.7 and the guy calls in and tells the story and
12:13 pm
pictures and says look, i got these defensive playbooks inside, there's handwritten notes, secrets from the redskins training camp and i just found them in the garbage. this is how the junkies are responding today. >> it's pretty coolbaugh you usually only hear something like this, for a guy to leave a playbook around is totally careless, pretty much an idiot. i'm sure everybody will make fun of him if he ever gets his foot in the league again. sam: after some investigation, it appears that these playbooks belong to one of the rookies who was cut during one of the first round roster cuts. well, the guy who found them, josh, he called the redskins and called their security and said hey, look, i found these, what do i do with them. the redskins are very nonchalant and said we'll have somebody call you back tomorrow and that was today. still as of this morning nobody called josh back. he says he may ask for tickets in exchange for those playbooks to come back. it's a story we'll be following all day. we want to hear your response. tweet us, facebook
12:14 pm
us know what you think. reporting live in northwest d.c., i'm sam sweeney. jummy: you would think that deserves in suite tickets or something. let's look at the video, it was a momentous occasion at st. paul ii unveiled the official canonization portrait of mother teresa and painted by renowned american artist chad faga nsks and will be on display at st. basilica where the pope will lead the mass and st. teresa will be declared a saint. we're monitoring a developing story out of georgetown university, who is planning to give admissions preference to the descendants of 227 slaves. those slaves were sold by two jesuit priests in 1838 to help pay off the debt at the school. current georgetown president says the school will be identifying those descendants and try to recruit them and atone for the school's participation in the slave trade. right now first

12:16 pm
head towards that state. neil reports the first one may not be so bad. neil: they really dodged a bullet here on this one. the surf here is still pretty rough on the big island as you can see. overall, it's just a rainy tropical storm and not the hurricane they feared. over the past 12 hours or so, the rain was torrential at times and coming down sideways and as a result roads were flooded and occasional outages. all schools on the island have been shut down and the port closed as well. but they feel they've missed the worst of it and will get a true sense of things once the sun comes up later today. abc news, hilo. jummy: both coasts. doug: monday and tuesday, everything we were flying high as the weekend looked great and dry and then hermine started to move and do its thing and yesterday computer models flipped, bringing everything inland which means it could have a profound effect on our weekend weather here but the models have gone back to where
12:17 pm
may not see much. if the models hold true and these are the accurate tracks the next few days, most of our area won't get a lot of anything out of it and the beaches will be gusty and windy with rain squalls and let's look at things to put the whole picture together for you. what you're seeing in the red is the coldest cloud tops. ostencibly it's the heaviest part of the tropical storm. you notice the past couple hours it went to a small circle and then spread out. one of the reasons is on the upper left-hand side of the storm. there's dry air getting in there with wind shear. two, it's keeping most of the energy to the east and northeast of the storm's center. this is all important to the people in florida because to the east and northeast of the storm's center will have the most torrential rains and best chance for spinup tornados late tonight and the biggest storm surge as far as the water coming from the gulf. let's take it forward now and give you the idea that the entire area here in the big bend of florida the whole area is under a hurricane warning through early tomorrow morning and then we've got tropical storm warnings to
12:18 pm
that and if you follow the alliance part of the north we get to a tropical storm watch over eastern north carolina. no advisories or headlines for our area or even our local beaches yet. as far as the storm, it has top winds at 65 miles per hour and good bet it will get to sustained winds of 75 to 80 miles an hour before it makes rain fall here appalachacola and then will be land bound over central georgia and winds up to 50 miles per hour by the night as it's over areas west of charleston and then looks at the outer banks cheer the currituc sound and then that time stamp is for 8:00 saturday and then goes offshore and hangs around for a while but weakens turning into pretty much a rain storm and that will keep showers, gusty winds and big waves on the coast through the day saturday and sunday and maybe even into labor day as this thing kind of sits out and doesn't go that mu
12:19 pm
away. right now we're looking pretty good. this computer model shows the track of the rain in time through midnight tomorrow night, heavy amounts of rain, the yellow really the heaviest amounts here and take a look what we have by the time we get to sunday morning, really .10 for our area and another computer model locally shows the same kind of effect running through friday, saturday and sunday and a .10 of an inch of rain here and you get to the coast and they get a lot more precipitation than that. our forecast, no worries, showers and maybe a little sunshine. later this afternoon, lower 80's and then for the next seven days, tomorrow looks like we'll be beautiful here with sunshine, lower 80's and then we'll keep our eyes to the south to see the potential effects. right now we call it partly sunny around most of our areas saturday and sunday and upper 70's with a 30% chance of showers and the farther east you go to the bay and especially towards the ocean the more showers likely and labor day, monday and tuesday looks nice with another warm-up coming. jummy: l
