5:46 pm
it's a raw 48 because the wind is blowing at over 20 miles per hour in gusts around town. here's what you should be planning on. i want to go through this one more time. it's an extended period of rough weather. the toughest time is at the coast worst of it during the high tide. that water gets pushed onshore. it's already high with the high tide. now the winds push it onshore. some of those winds up to 50 miles per hour and the rain that you are getting is chilly and raw, there's your wind advisory for the jersey shore but we are all going to be dealing with strong winds. rain for everybody some bouts of heavier rain will make their way in. it's moving north. we are talking about moisture. some of that bigger moisture making its way into our area tonight. we are never going to see the type of rain that they are picking up in the carolinas but we'll catch heavier ran than we have right now. that's 1:30 in the morning as you go overnight. then saturday, you know, some light showers out there definitely. then as you make your way into sunday, a little bit -- not that much but you have to look at this. there is joaquin.
5:47 pm
there's the moisture trail that makes its way all the way back to the carolinas and this is why the carolinas are talking about picking up 10, 15" of rain out of this system. you lose one and have another one. we lose the high pressure giving us the rough weather now. then joaquin will be offshore giving us the same flow coming in off the water so it's going to be tough out there. it's not, okay, i want to make this clear, these are not the strongest winds we have ever had. they are going to be persistent for a long period of time drawn out and continuously putting water onshore. so 56 degrees for saturday. that rain chance and the wind, as well. 66 on sunday. i don't think it's going to be as wet. you could see sun. wind off the water. 70 on monday and 70s for next week. i apologize about the microphone mishap there. >> thank you. >> don't forget to wash your hands after, uhm -- [ laughter ] >> yeah. >> nevermind. as we continue, do you deserve five stars? it may not matter what you think of yourself.
