in philadelphia. still very uncomfortable. feels like 94 in wilmington and millville and the heat is a little bit lower in the 80s across the northern suburbs. a long action radar showing you can still see the movement in the clouds and the showers above that ridge of high pressure that is just sticking around, not just this weekend, but through a large portion of next week. this is going to be a tough heat wave to break and a heat index tracker shows why it's going to be so dangerous tomorrow. by 8:00, it already feels like 93 in philadelphia. then between 10:00 and really 8:00 at night, the heat is above 100. probably peaking at 110 at about 3:00 in the afternoon. so this is a good reason why you really do need to find some air conditioning tomorrow. try to drink lots of water. try to stay in the shade. do what you can to stay cool. future tracker showing 3:00 tomorrow afternoon, many areas where the heat index above 100. and allentown and the poconos
showing 92 -- 90. that's probably we get a few thunderstorms moving through. on sunday, here we go again. the heat index soaring above 100, yet again. so this is going to be a tough weekend. if you are down the shore, the good news is the ocean temperature has cooled off dramatically two days ago it was 83.3, a record. now it's down to 68 so that will feel good because the air temperature is going to be hot. hot and humid tomorrow with a high of 90 sunday. 92 degrees an isolated thunderstorm possible, and the heat index about 100 degrees tomorrow. so even on the beaches, it's going to be very hot. so the exclusive accuweather seven-day forecast day four tomorrow, 89 degrees, one degree shy of the record high for the date. the heat index, though, 110. sunday almost a sad 97. monday drops a little bit 93 and then tuesday and wednesday it looks like temperatures will remain in the 90s, low 90s, chances of thunderstorms, and hoping on thursday and
friday we can say the heat wave is over. but it's still going to be unseasonallably warm with temperatures in the upper 80s, so i can't stress enough to be very careful tomorrow. check in with the elderly. everything i've been saying all summer. >> really take care of yourself tomorrow. >> yeah. >> thank you. a disney channel star with local ties returned to the valley with a special performance. ♪ >> that is sabrina carpenter, a native warming up before her music fest performance tonight. the 17-year-old also stars in girl meets world, the sequel to the abc '90s sitcom boy meets world, owned by disney, the parent company of abc. and parents spent their growing up weekends.

that he wasn't playing, he's -- he never stopped working, and he kept his chin up, and he kept plugging. and now it's paying off for him. and he's swinging the bat as well as i've seen him. >> prior to the game, jim thome was honored. he was put onto the phillies wall of fame. the 38th member to achieve that distinction. former teammate bobby unveiled the plaque. thome understands what this means. >> they just don't give people hall of fames, you know? that honor. and to be voted by the fans, i've got to tell you. that is something special. i know i didn't play here long, and there's -- you know, there's so many guys that will eventually be in this that are deserving. i just feel so i guess honored that they would even think of me to put me in. >> cody has been sent back to aaa. the outfielder has been a mess at the plate. batting .213 on the season. over the last seven games averaging an anemic .136.
as for last night's victory over the bucks, coach found some positives and some negatives. >> overall, there's a lot of areas that we can continue to improve on. obviously to start the game with the special teams turn over and score offensively was obviously a positive. and the way i think our first defense kind of got after them a little bit too was very, very pleasing. 11 penalties and things like that can't happen, even in preseason. you want to be able to clean those things up. but overall pleased with the win but overall a lot of work left to do. >> the u.s. men's basketball team barrel gets by serbia. u.s. women's soccer team is not as fortunate. they lose to sweden in the penalty kicks. after the match the u.s. goalie hope solo says they play like a bunch of cowards. a reminder. if you're going to have grapes, don't have sour grapes. there you go, hope solo. finally a big moment for some
