direction and by saturday morning, the rain lifts with the front to the north and west and we'll try to dry is out saturday morning, with light showers around and it stays breezy and cool. >> unlike last night, the heaviest rain, in the next go around, over the sandy soils of southern new jersey and delaware between 2 and 3 inches of rain and maybe 2 in philadelphia, north and west, with the flip that is good news, you won't get the heaviest rain over the same locations that saw is last night. hurricane joaquin, winds sustained at 75 miles per hour moving to the southwest, this is the other

blossoming and that means that joaquin may strengthen and push to the south and west in the southern end of the chain of the bahama islands, but will start to curve its way back to the north, the first round is in northern new england with a stalled front off the coast and that front inches its way back inland as we get into thursday and friday, so friday into saturday, the wins you'll really notice picking up as we have the boundary coming in and we'll be squeezed between low pressure to the south and high pressure to the north, really kind of at all intertwined with joaquin so to speak. winds 15 to 20 miles per hour, gusts of 35, and along the coast the dreadly northeasterly wind with gusts up to 45 with beach erosion and flooding, a coastal flood watch goes into effect in the evening and moderate to major flooding at the shore and it's all prior to any effects with joaquin and that is separate from the hurricane, and then from thursday right through monday or so of next week, a six day period, we could see around 5 irnlgs of rain in philadelphia, but go to the south where they could see anywhere from a half a foot and up to 9 inches of rain but still a healthy amount
