eastward projection which is good for us for your holiday weekend and latest round here but still a very big cone of uncertainty as we head into saturday, sunday and early monday morning but it keeps the the storm well off shore and any rain and wind will be most felt as far as the shore is concerned. but even that it is again a lot of uncertainty but sunday seems to be the worst day of it, whatever we get, that is what we will get. that is when we will get it, i should say. those are spaghetti models, everybody likes to look at those. watch projection of the storm by saturday noon the center of the storm around norfolk virginia, raleigh-durham, north carolina with some of the rain stretching up into southern delaware, and now we have saturday have afternoon and the rain is still kind of in delaware, any rain we will get will be sunday again it looks like that projection hold the center of the storm is still off shore on sunday,
moves around off shore, through monday, and then we do expect at this point any rain to possibly taper off on monday, but as we keep telling you this change is a lot, because the storm hasn't moved off carolina coast yet and that is when we will determine, where it will go. enjoy this one. energy most of the saturday. it looks like cloud and rain come late in the day at the shore and three to 5 inches of rain is possible in the places closest to the coast, mid 70's our high temperature, on sunday and monday. so cool weather in addition to the possibility of impact from this storm. mid 80's today with mostly cloudy skies on saturday and sunday we don't get out of the 70's and any tropical impact is here in the city we will feel on sunday but we will not get a lot of rain like they will at the shore. it is looking at this point and then tapering off on monday, that rain at least we hope so we do see a big old
warming trend as we head in the middle of next week. just because it is september we are seeing possibility of being in the 90's is not out of the question. >> big question is how much impact will that weekend forecast have on the traffic? change your mind? people try to leave early or try to get down there. after spending a day at work 95 at cottman looking good, all clear, north and southbound lanes. in major issues there. we could have an issue on the tacony palmyra bridge moving nicely now but seeking an opening. should be happening any minute within the next ten or 15 minutes easily could see that bridge opening and avoid and work around this heading that way, shortly expect ago this bridge opening. northeast extension little issue here well north of pits town pennsylvania, turnpike northeast extension that southbound off ramp is closed because of the tractor trailer accident. they are working to clean that up but this i just want you you to be aware of this morning well to the north.

good morning i'm sean bell. starters didn't play in the final game against the jets, the pack up getting the work. few guys making a strong case to make that 53 man roster, paul turner one of them. it is impossible to cut this man after a couple great catches, he caps it off with this, makes a move, and he is gone. 71-yard punt return for a touch town. turner was player of the game. he played absolutely flawless football. former penn stater christian hackenberg he had a terrible game taking off where he left off at penn state, throws an interception to ed reynolds. he takes it 90-yard the to the house. eagles win 14-ten finishing the season, four-o. he did not stand last night after a 90 minute conversation, and, green barrett/former nfl layer he chose to neil during the national anthem, his safety
close to tallahassee and now heading through georgia, south caroline, north carolina rain band extend that far north in the out are banks where they are getting rain now and that will continue through tomorrow for them. the storm itself will progress and hold together as a tropical storm and as it moves off shore on saturday and you can see there the cone of uncertainty really widens after that happened. but we do expect this storm to stay off shore, not a direct impact but there will still be impact. the most of our spaghetti models are agreeing everybody likes to look at spaghetti models. mostly agreeing on a off shore track for this track as it gets close tore our area. looking at these win gust as long the shore we have tropical storm force win gusts as early as sat the day and then especially on sunday where by sunday evening we could have 50 miles an hour win gust as along the coast and wind inland as well. we could see 30 to 35 miles an
hour wind gusts that is impacting us as well. so late day showers with 20 to 40 miles an hour win gusts on saturday and sunday. if you get rain and wind it will be heaviest then with the 30 to 60 miles an hour gusts then. lingering showers possible at the shore on monday with winds gusting to 20 to 30 miles an hour. so any rain that we get could be as much as three to 5 inches, high tied nine to 10:00 a.m., nine to 10:00 p.m. generally along most of the new jersey shore points. in philadelphia it is a beautiful morning. our tropical storm warnings by the way continue along the east coast. rye now though we have 65 comfortable degrees in philadelphia mostly other temperatures in the 60's. the 50's to the north of us. average high temperature 83 degrees, we will be right around that. eighty-one yesterday. eighty-three, 84 today and then 70's on saturday and sun take, with quite a few included on saturday.
we will see the rain, until saturday night, until we get any and any tropical impact we will get in the city on sunday and it all depend as you well know on final track of the storm. >> close enough to impact the area, impact of the roadway 76 eastbound 202, work around this one here, there is a crash here with the lane blocked and car on the shoulder, cars are getting by but slowly. lanes are block eastbound on 76 just past 202, out toward king of prussia tacony palmyra bridge there is an opening this morning. seeing that happening shortly or happening now but might to have work around that this morning because the bridge is expecting to see that opening and it should happen here any minute if it is not already occurring. few issues on other roadways in pottstown route 23, ridge road near pottstown pike,
might have to get around this one. slow in the area. right around route 23, and we have the issue there in delaware route one north bound at route 273 crash still impacting the road around newark, road is closed so watch that one this morning. the chris and lauren, back over to you. tropical storm hermine rocks golf coast with strong wind and heavy rain, storm headaching land fall with 80-mile an hour wind. >> here's the latest from fox's patricia starks. >> we will ride it out. >> reporter: hermine makes land fall in florida bringing heavy wind and rain. >> we have been raring for this for quite a while. we have been watching this for quite a while. everybody in the state has got to get prepared. remember this is life threatening. >> reporter: storm taking down trees and power lines with thousands of homes without electricity. >> power goes up we are here. >> reporter: many out trying to buy gas and stock up, ahead of the storms arrival. >> all other gas station where is busy. i heard they have a line out
