11:19 pm
several hours earlier yesterday because of the rocky waters and strong winds. and, sheena, we're seeing those conditions that it could be rough. that was from yesterday and the one we're talking about with bermuda is a little rough still today. >> so the winds sustained near the center of hermine are still around 70 miles an hour. so that's really strong. you get that water moving and churn, there's nothing to stop it. that's why a lot of these ships have, at least some of them, started moving on land for the most part. that's a smart thing to do. but on land here holocally, we' seeing much nicer conditions. the storm staying offshore will be providing still high winds for the jersey shore and the delaware beaches. here's a live look outside atlantic city. not looking too bad. we have some surf there. you see it in the image. as we go into tomorrow, if you will be at the shore, it's still going to be a windy day. the rip current risk is still going to be high. so keep that in mind.
11:20 pm
and we could see this system slowly try to move closer to shore. it's not going to get close to shore, but the track may move it more to the northwest tomorrow. so with that being said, we'll continue to see those winds and high surf and the rip current risk, be very careful of that. very far offshore, max winds near 70 miles an hour near the center. this storm is starting to bring cloud cover closer to the shore. look at the track, though. it's going to maybe move to the northwest which again will only continue to give us winds and high rip current risk but then back out to sea. it's going to stay offshore. here's a look at the clouds and the rain. the rain still pretty far offshore. cloud cover along the shore. the jersey shore and delaware beaches. as we go into tomorrow, don't be surprised if you are at the shore and continue to see that cloud cover. the center of this storm now, 350 miles away from the shore. and as it gets closer tomorrow, it will again continue to bring us possibly tropical storm conditions. so tropical storm warnings still
11:21 pm
for the delaware beaches, jersey shore. winds gusting near 40 miles an hour through the day. we still have again the risk for rip currents with that. so it's going to be very dangerous if you try to go swimming in the water tomorrow. here's a look at future weather seeing the rain offshore. gets it a little closer tomorrow through the day. most of this rain will still stay offshore. more clouds in new jersey and delaware. by monday evening, the storm pushing away off to the north. even by tuesday. but we'll still have those rough seas locally. still the threat of rip currents. wednesday, starts to move even farther away. what you can expect labor day, tomorrow, at the shore, the waves will be high, about 8 to 12-foot seas. high risk of rip currents still with those rough waters. we're also talking about windy conditions. wind gusts near 40 miles an hour or so. and the flooding we've been talking about for the weekend, right now it looks like possibly minor to moderate tidal flooding. that's going to be at the time of high tide. atlantic city, rehoboth beach.
11:22 pm
in between these areas, tide times will fall in between. tomorrow, we're looking at the first high tide around 11:00 a.m. and the second one 11:00 p.m. moderate tidal flooding is possible. by tuesday, could be looking at minor tidal flooding with high tide times. so as we go through your labor day, if you're in philadelphia, it's going to be nice. 83 degrees. sunny. breezy. along the shore, 84 degrees. more in the way of cloud cover but windy. take a look at what happens to our temperatures. we start to get warmer wither wind direction finally changing as hermine moves away. 90s again. another heat wave in the forecast. even though the unofficial end to summer is here, we're still going to feel like summer. if you're still at the shore, if you're lucky enough as we go through the rest of this week, temperatures mid to low 80s. danny? >> coming up in sports, it appears the eagles future has arrived ahead of schedule. now the question is, will carson wentz start in next week's

quarterback. now they got a quarterback. it was obvious that tom condon, the agent for sam bradford and sam bradford were both trying to get him oufts here. he's out of here now n he's going to probably the best team he's ever played for. and the eagles are in a position they get a first round draft pick and pick a year after that. and here they are. now they've got carson wentz and the one cautionary note i would say, don't rush carson wentz. >> on paper for both teams the trade looks like a home run. phillies could use some home runs of their own. their offense has come to screeching halt during a brutal 0-6 home stand. jake thompsoning this afternoon's finale. bombs this 28th round trip for the season. braves, 1-0. the nice phillie defense in the third.
