water. we have rough seas and dangerous rip currents, look at the temperatures, 50s in the lehigh valley. 59 degrees in the suburbs and 63 degrees in philadelphia. we will see sunshine today and a nice warmup, low 70s at 10:00. look at the winds, 11 miles an hour. a little bit stronger in new jersey at times and the lehigh valley, you'll feel some of the wind as well, too. 57 degrees now. 63 degrees at 8:00 and then into the low 70s at 11:00 this morning. on our way to the 80s this afternoon, 85 degrees for philadelphia. even into the 80s at the shore. the wind will be stronger at the shore. it will feel cooler during the day today. i'll go through the forecast hour by hour when i'm back in a few minutes. right now it's labor day. let's see if there's any traffic. jessica boyington is watching the roads. shaking her head no. >> no, no traffic this morning. so far anyway. maybe something will change. i'll predict a big fat no. right now, we're watching the garden state parkway, near the
cape may toll plaza. one car going by either direction every once in a while. no problems through the toll plaza. mass transit, septa, they're running on a new fall schedule. for patco, they're running on a labor day schedule today. no delays right now but that's something you'll want to check before you head out the door. other than that, d.a.r.t., new jersey transit and amtrak running on time. folks at the jersey shore and delaware beaches as, we've mention, could see flooding thanks to hermine. pamela osborne is live in ocean city this morning. as bill just said, nice day to sit on the beach. it will be sunny, but not to swim in the ocean. >> that's right. i want to show you something right now. take a look. there's a sign posted right here saying the ocean is closed. that is because of high risk of rip currents and high and dangerous surf conditions. this will be taking place throughout the day today potentially into tomorrow. we're talking about sustained winds of 15 to 30 miles per
hour, gusts of up to 45. cape may county officials monitoring high tide this morning. and also looking out for low tide. they're concerned about coastal flooding. i should also let you know that the labor day race that was planned for today in ocean city has also been canceled because of the weather conditions. so there is certainly other things -- are other things you can do. you can come down to the boardwalk, have some fun. visit some of the shops here. not a good idea to be in the water as the beaches are closed because of the dangerous conditions. reporting live from ocean city, pamela osborne, nbc 10 news. 5:34, 63 degrees in south philadelphia. delaware beaches are already under the threat of flooding. you can't talk about delaware without talking about nbc 10's tim furlong, live in rehoboth beach this morning. >> good morning, vai. we thought it would be rougher thanç it was.
turned out okay. they canceled all the band stand concerts here. in bethany beach, they were going to have their jazz funeral to send away summer. during the blizzard in january, they got a lot of rain. that end of the boardwalk down there, it was all ripped up. they had to replace the boardwalk. they were watching it closely to see what happened during hermine and the tides. we saw a couple high tides to go here before we're completely out of the woods. so far, so good. we have gotten some san on the boardwalk here in rehoboth. i'm here a lot with my family. people walk off, they bring sand with them but not like this. you can see the wind isn't so bad, a little bit of a breeze kicking through here. they took the trash can lids off, brought back the lifeguard chairs. the ocean, there's usually a six or seven-foot dropoff.
the fact you want key the waves breaking there and it's level with where we are on the boardwalk, that means the water is up higher. it's not as bad as it could be. at high tide later this morning, up in lewes, down in dewey, there are spots we're concerned about. at this point, not too bad. breezy, actually nice out here in rehoboth. i see people coming out here starting to walk. coming to life a little bit out here. it looks like it will be a beautiful morning here in rehoboth. hopefully a lot of people, maybe inlanders who avoid coming down here on labor day, maybe they'll come down here and help these businesses out who lost some storm. >> tim furlong has the entire beach to himself. in florida, it's cleanup time. yesterday, governor rick scott toured some of the most damaged emergency officials say nearly 750 homes were placed under mandatory evacuations and that

way, no stranger to rough waters. the ship got caught in a very violent storm in february. causing quite a bit of dj to the boat and the captain had to reroute the cruise from the bahamas back to the u.s. those passengers received full refunds. how about this, another cruise ship ran into choppy waters from hermine. the carnival pride brought its ship to port in baltimore because of conditions at sea. they were traveling back from a trip to the bahamas. we know you'll be on the move this holiday weekend. take nbc 10 with you soç you c track hermine with us, see the latest time of the storm and specific flood threats. plus, use our interactive radar. breaking news at 5:38. a building that was under construction in tel aviv, israel, has collapsed. at least ten people are trapped. there are 30 people believed to be hurt. it's still unclear what caused the building collapse. we'll continue to follow this
