you can hear his voice. no matter what way joaquin heads the national weather service predicts as much as 10 inches in new york and new jersey. today is a yellow weather alert day. now here's wusa 9's first alert weather. >> a lot of that rain like the rain we'll get tomorrow that's nothing to do with joaquin. this is ahead of joaquin. parts of the carolinas could get 10 inches. i'm thinking 4 to 6 even. >> it's a one-two punch. >> yeah. joaquin a very powerful hurricane. it may be taking more of an aim towards new england than us. i'll explain right now. we look at the storm and it's an oppressive looking storm. we're now starting to see that eye feature, that little pinhole in the middle. that's about 30 miles wide right there. hurricane force winds only about 30 40 mile from the center and tropical storm force are at 100 150. we may get some tropical
storm force winds on the coast should the track keep up. there's lots of warnings. the red is all hurricane warnings. bahamas got kinds of 125. it's gotten up to 155. it looks like it gets stronger over night and into tomorrow morning a category 4. these islands are just being pounded by this storm. pictures when we get them i'm sure will show a lot of destruction sadly. storm moves up north and loses intensity wind sheer. it doesn't help a storm to be over cool water. towards monday morning it's passing east of north carolina on the track. it's a hurricane still. it's going to be passing the del marva monday. monday at 8:00 maybe 150 miles east of ocean city. with that track there's still going to be waves and rough sufficient and beach erosion, but keeps the brunt of the winds offshore. the hurricane force winds will stay
offshore. here we are tuesday morning. this track if it's going to move from west to east my feeling is it would move more east than west. we're still in that cone of uncertainty. i'm feeling less anxious today than yesterday. don't let your guard down yet. if this trend continues sunday and monday may not be too bad. we had a lot of rain this morning light rain and drizzle but moderate rain developed here in the last hour or so from areas over joint base anders creeping north. it's over route 50. it's over towards the bowie area. i wouldn't be surprised if some areas have ponding on the roadways or minor flooding. the rest of us just dealing with this miserable day. it's lifting up to the north northwest. greenbelt watch out for that, laurel it's headed your way as well in the next 30 to 60 minutes. flood watches erupt tomorrow and saturday. 2
to 4 inches of additional rain will be possible. it's dreary looking outside and i think it will stay that way much of the day with on and off showers. we're at 57 now. we will drop off tonight into the 50s. kind of an ugly looking map with mid to upper 50s. we got a lot of rain coming. we'll have the showers on and off today. it picks up though. today we've already hit the high 61, 63 in that range. only in the mid 50s tomorrow. we could have winds gusting 25, 30, maybe 35 by the bay. it's going to be a tough friday. yellow weather alert there. windy with waves and passing rain and showers 63. towards sunday it depends on joaquin and whatever happens with joaquin. i think it's out of here by monday. monday sunshine returns and it looks a lot better next week as temperatures rise back into the 70s. a lot to worry about until then. we're going to change gears. christy curtis from the animal
