it's attacks hike senator beck of monmouth county says the whole thing feels like a hustle. not too cloak. >> it's sort of cloak and dagger announcing it late on a friday trying to move it can be before people know what's going on. so we'll see. >> reporter: soon too as a matter of fact friday morning at 10:00 a.m. the senate will vote on amended version of a gas tax bill that's already passed the new jersey state assembly. my friend bill spady has been on the war path on twitter so you need to speak up as well. what do you think, 23-cent gas tax to sure up new jersey's crumbling roads and bridges? there's been awful lot of waste over the years. his me up at hank fox 29 or us at fox 29 philly. all right. whole lot of stuff happening in the weather department. >> let's check in with kathy orr. kathy? >> we're talking about the latest on hurricane matthew right now category three storm expected to strengthen into category four over the next 12 to 24 hours.
it's moving through the bahamas, the eye becoming a little bit more well defined as the storm begins to strengthen and as you can see, it's not that far away from the peninsula of florida. as we look ahead we're watching the latest track of this storm and looking at the very latest from the national hurricane center. now, this is the 8:00 o'clock advisory. we are minutes away from the 11:00 o'clock advisory but we think it will be pretty similar from the bahamas to florida. you can see it comes very close to the coast of florida. some of our models have it making an actual landfall along the east coast then it curves around the coast of georgia, reallreally outlines the curve t here through south carolina going through charleston and then hooks back around in a loop back toward the open waters of the atlantic. a very unusual track of the storm but our computer models are in consensus that this is where the storm is going to go. this is our latest computer model. rpm very good in the short term taking it threw the bahamas and then moving a little bit farther
to the north and west, and making a landfall along the coast pretty obvious landfall with hurricane force winds and also very heavy rain taking it up towards jacksonville and then moving it toward charleston. as far as the potential rain is concerned we're talking about at least five, maybe even seven or 8-inches of rain along the coast going up through jacksonville, savannah and charleston. the hurricane hunters have been going out gathering the information from the storm, and putting it into these models. here's scott with a look how that works out and these models pretty similar, scott. it's amazing. >> they really are especially the european and the gfs model that we've been looking at, kathy. but take look at that satellite perspective on the storm. that burst of convection right around that center of circulation so with that latest 11:00 o'clock advisory, it will likely have intensified let's talk about the models as we compare that european and the gfs. of course, we're looking at how they go up the coast over the next several days, and it really
is impressive to see how those models have really come into a better agreement. the european and the gfs model. we'll switch sources and show you how it kind of tracks up the coast of florida parallelling that coast society european is in green and gfs is in red as we go hour with hour by friday at 9:00 a.m. you can see they're pretty much identical and we continue to follow that system over the next several days. so, of course, that is something that we will be watching, kathy, over the next several days with matthew as it tracks up the southeast coast. >> it is amazing. thank you. we also looking at the amount of wind associated with this. so hurricane force winds will absolutely continue along the coast and possibly moving their way up through places like savannah and into south carolina as well. overnight temperatures will be very comfortable. in the 50s. tomorrow the high temperature 75. on your seven day forecast, quiet at home. a front brings some rain on saturday. sunday, monday, tuesday for the
holiday into wednesday, temperatures cooler. feeling a little bit more like october. we'll send it back to you. >> kathy, carson wentz hasn't played in a couple of weeks but the love affair is
still strong from philly all the way back to north dakota. plus nigel bradham his second straight off the field incident in miami. doug pederson talks about possible discipline. that's coming up next in sports.
i survived breast cancer. if the doctors hadn't caught it early i might not
be sitting here. so i'm outraged that pat toomey voted to defund planned parenthood... which thousands of pennsylvania women depend on for cancer screenings. pat toomey was even willing to shut down the federal government to eliminate funding for planned parenthood. shut down the government over planned parenthood? i think we ought to shut down pat toomey. senate majority pac is responsible for the content of this advertising.
