>> welcome back. here's live look at panama city, florida, as hurricane hermine moves into the straight across florida residents are bracing for the impact of the hurricane. the storm is making its way to the state's gulf coast and people are already seeing a lot of flooding there. back here at home hurricane also expected to impact folks down the shore. meteorologist scott williams tracking the impact now. scott? >> that's right as we couldn't to keep tabs on category one hurricane hermon just kind of churning just off of the coast of florida. right now maximum sustained winds are at 75 miles per hour. it should near apalachicola making landfall over the next several hours. but look at those feeder bands the rain continuing to poor into the big bend area of florida. hurricane warnings have been posted there in red.
category one status winds at 75 miles per hour movement now picking up some forward speed to the north northeast about 14 miles per hour. but as we head up the coast, take a look for our area. down the shore, the delaware beaches, tropical storm watches have been posted because we could see tropical storm force winds over 40 miles per hour in parts of our area. look at the the spaghetti plots you can see pretty good agreement here moving it through georgia through the carolinas. but then eventually out to sea a little farther to the east but it kind of stalls and we'll set up shop for several days meandering and that could mean a long duration event. winds out of the north and east and that would mean beach erosion also some tidal flooding down the shore. moderate to heavy rain as well. so as we look at the official forecast track by 2am on saturday, eastern sections of north carolina, 50 miles per hour storm then moving off of hatteras by saturday afternoon. by sunday, about 100 miles out
to sea from our coast and we're looking at it lingering into monday so that's why it will be a long duration event especially down the shore. so impacts across our area. minor the farther north and west you head moderate risk along the philadelphia i-95 corridor interior south jersey but major impacts once you move into those coastal communities. the winds they will be picking up saturday afternoon gusting over 40 miles per hour down the shore. that's the tropical storm status with that tropical storm watch. by sunday morning, look at the winds gusting close to 50 miles per hour down the shore. still breezy as you move toward the philadelphia area. we might see some winds gusting upwards to 40 miles per hour depending on that track. so down the shore, looking at that rip current danger all labor day weekend and you can see those winds the height of the the storm gusting 30, 60 miles per hour down the sho shore. tomorrow it's beautiful. saturday not bad for most but we are looking at those showers
moving in during the day on saturday. a 70% chance for rain on sunday. so how much rain are we expecting out of this system? a sharp cut off the farther north and west you head. so philadelphia right in that bulls eye of one to 2-inches of rainfall. that purple once you move into the red the orange the yellow, down the shore, we could see three to perhaps as high as 6-inches of rainfall once we get off of that scale. so continuing to monitor just the exact track of hermine over the next several days. but impacts across the entire area major to minor temple's game looking beautiful tomorrow. sunshine, low 80s. 76 on saturday. clouds rolling in. showers late in philadelphia but earlier down the shore and then sunday the height of the storm 70 degrees. we'll talk much more tonight at 10:00. howard? well, we got preseason game number four and some interesting developments on who is playing and who is not.

difference because he's not probably not going to play for the season. >> we don't know allow lane johnson. the eagles are now preparing to have lane johnson there against the cleveland browns on september 11th. >> when i look at the starters i just saw the starters on defen defense. michael kendricks is starting. yet no other starter is starting. does he have to play well or is he in the doghouse? >> well, he's not particularly playing great football. but a lot of that is because he had an injury and he didn't play in the first two preseason games, and then last week the eagles played a lot of nickel and he wasn't on the field. >> if you had to pick two or three players that might be playing for their jobs tonight, one way or the other, who would you look at. >> i would certainly look at paul turner whose been outstanding. i still think he's on the outside looking in for 53 man roster spot. there are some young offensive linemen nobody cares about the linemen. the cornerbacks cj smith played a lot last week with the starters. he and eric row are battling for that fifth cornerback position.
big game from smith and a bad game from row could the eagles possibly cut second round pick from year ago? he's been buried on his depth chart. starter last year. we don't hear much from eric rowe at all. >> what worry looking for the eagles are looking for players not to get hurt. >> yes. >> and guys may be playing their last game in the nfl. >> slutly. you're looking for players who you can rely upon on both teams. to be on the practice quad squad. 10 player practice squad announced sunday and monday as you know in the nfl howard more than the 53 man roster. you have to develop some of these players. >> okay. dave, thanks. it's the last game before we do it for real on september 11th. back to you guys in the studio. >> all right, howard. thank you. >> let's get check of that weather. looking at the tropics. >> still watching hurricane hermine nearing landfall along the florida panhandle. as we take look at the forecast for labor day weekend beautiful for friday but conditions go downhill saturday afternoon. several inches of rain possible also that dangerous rip current
concern. now, in philadelphia, clouds increase, most of the day is dry on saturday. but afternoon, evening, showers start to move in from the new york. the height of it for philadelphia would be on sunday with some heavy rain and some wind. a couple of inches possible as well. lingering clouds, breezy as we move toward labor day. so it's still threat on your holiday weekend across the area. we have new computer information and models coming in. we'll have that tonight at 10:00 and 11:00 so make sure you tune in and follow mow on twitter as well scott fox 29. >> all right. kind of a bummer. >> yeah. >> we'll make do does exactly. >> last weekend kind of a washout. that will do it for us tonight here at 6:00 g we'll see you back here at 10:00 and at 11 alcohol. have terrific night. inside edition is up next. thanks for watching. ♪
