9:01 am
progression off the coast of north carolina. we're expecting the storm to move to the north and cutback in toward the coast tomorrow or tonight into tomorrow. but for now that distant position is improving the forecast in a couple of ways. you can see the main body of rain is well to the north, a little bit of shower activity is pushing to the south and dissipating. in fact as we look at the local view we had showers south of baltimore, they have evaporated and pushed to the south. this may be the way radar looks all day today. if we see any sprinkle or shower it's along the coast. we don't expect much. inland everything is looking good, a little breezy, but a good day to get out and do whatever you want to do. what has not changed is the issues with the heavy surf and coastal flooding. we're looking at 9-foot waves long beach island. 8-foot in atlantic city. 76 -- 7 and 6 in the mouth of

9:17 am
the storm is slightly farther offshore than what was predicted. look at the result in camden, a beautiful morning, lots of bright blue, high, thin clouds upstairs, it's comfortable and cool, temperatures in the 40s in the poconos. double scan live is clear, no precipitation this morning. could be a shower or two for the jersey shore late this afternoon and especially overnight tonight and into tomorrow. i'll show you that on future tracker 6. philadelphia, wilmington, trenton, closing in on 70 degrees. tropical storm warnings continue for the jersey shore and the delaware beaches and the delaware bay tonight and tomorrow, winds gusting 40 to 50 miles per hour, maybe as high as 55. this is where we'll see the storm surge as hermine gets closer to the shoreline over the next 12 to 24 hours. here's the latest winds of 65 miles per hour. right now it's tracking off to the east-northeast away from the shore, this cluster right here,
9:18 am
once it turns back this is the cluster that will start wrapping around on the western side of the storm and will bring the raining conditions to the jersey shore as we head into tomorrow morning. here's the spaghetti plot, each line represents tropical forecast model. here's the difference right here, most of them turn the storm to the left, closer to the coast. this model right here is only 100 miles off the coastline. look at this one right here, it's way offshore. this would suggest nothing happening at all, maybe a foot of storm surge, this could be four or five feet. again, there's a little bit of a difference here, we have to wait and see as the storm pulls to the northeast it will hit the high pressure and slow down and that's when it will make the turn to the left, it will be at that point we get a better handle on how close to the shore it will get. future tracker 6, this is a gorgeous day, sun and clouds, nice breeze out of the north. high temperatures in the 70s
9:19 am
no humidity. overnight tonight, the clouds lower and thicken, a little bit of rain breaks out first thing tomorrow morning. that will continue for the jersey shore. inlands locations might not see anything at all. rainfall totals, 1 to 2 inches for the jersey shore. quarter to a half inch for interior sections of south jersey. north and west not seeing anything at all. winds gusts we toned this down, as well. gusting 40 to 50 miles per hour for the immediate shoreline, 30 40-mile an hour gusts for interior new jersey. him this could be minor flooding with this morning's high tide and it's tonight's high tide and tomorrow morning's high tide that we are concerned about. for today, look for a combination of sun and clouds, pleasant out there, 79 in

9:27 am
bluster, some of the umbrellas on top of the picnic tables might not like that. you have to be careful of branches or television coming down. -- twigs coming down. we have concerns down the shore, there's a tropical storm warning from rehoboth beach through the jersey coastline we're looking at gusts especially later tonight and tomorrow getting up to 40 to 50 miles per hour and today and tomorrow we're looking at the time extremely dangerous rough surf and dangerous rip currents most lifeguards will prevent you from getting in the water, we recommend that you take that advice now and forget about getting if the water today or tomorrow. we're looking at severe coastal flooding. the worst of that will be tonight with high tide late this evening, and again early tomorrow morning where we can be looking -- we could be looking at moderate to major coastal flooding, both the delaware beaches and along the jersey shore. that has not changed. the rain picture is improving.
9:28 am
some models keep us largely dry tomorrow, although we'll allow the possibility of some rain building in along the coast. we'll be back with the top stories. >> reporter: and you'll definitely vote? >> yes, i'm definitely voting. >> reporter: one down. many more votes to get out.
9:29 am
9:30 am
unpopular are republicans than clinton is among democrats. this is a weakness, not a strength. >> let's >> surf up, but it's not recommended. hermine is showing its effects along the jersey shore by kicking up waves. some are taking advantage of the higher surf. authorities are advising against getting into the water as they keep a close eye on the storm. >> let's look sky6 live hd cape may, gorgeous out there right now, hermine is scheduled to make the left turn hitting the delaware and jersey communities with high surf and rough water. >> we're keeping an eye on hermine as we move into the holiday weekend. chris sowers and david murphy are here to give you up to want minute updates. >> we'll start with david at the big board, hermine will head
9:31 am
westward and coming toward us. >> reporter: it has made it's move off the coast of the carolinas, we're waiting for a shift to the north and eventually by tonight and tomorrow we're expecting a move back toward the coast before it shorvetion off to the east -- shoves off to the east and gets away from us. the question is how far to the west does it go and how close from the impact of the storm makes it here. we're looking at a nice day shaping up, it's a little bit breezy with a mix of clouds and sun out there. as we look at the current radar imagery, no rain out there. sprinkles and showers south of baltimore, they are gone. it will stay dry maybe a shower later tonight with a sprinkle at the shore. what we are expecting at the shore, everything is pretty much on track. the onshore waves have built a
9:32 am
little bit up. the 9-foot wave moving farther up the coast at this point as the storm shifts away from us, we're looking at 6, 7, 8-foot waves along the beach. that's rough surf. most of the lifeguards will tell you nope you're not allowed to get into the water. 28-mile gust helping to pile the surf on the beach. the other issue is the coastal flooding that's on track to become moderate to major in some areas tonight at times of high tide and again tomorrow morning. even though, visually the day may look good, and the winds may not be all that strong you ever to take all the precautions down the shore because we're looking at a concern with flooding and of course the dangerous conditions in the water. >> chris sowers is out on the terrace with how this will he involve in the next 24 hours. the latest on her mean is called
9:33 am
post tropic fabioal, it's packig winds 65 miles per hour. the center of circulation is 325 miles southeast of philadelphia. it's moving away from the coast at 12 miles per hour. this is the latest forecasted track from the national hurricane center, an update will come in at 11:00 a.m. it will make a left-hand turn and shift to the west shortly here maybe over the next ten hours or so turn closer to the coast. that's important because the highest storm surge and the largest swells wrap around the center of the storm. as the center gets closer to the coast, so do the rougher conditions, we're seeing waves in excess of 30 feet. and that's where we'll see the storm surge. it will get closer and closer
9:34 am
still until the center is 125 miles off the coast first thing tomorrow evening and then the storm begins to pull away. it will be at that point where the conditions begin to deteriorate for the jersey shore are we're not talking about heavy rain, we're talking about coastal flooding and beach erosion and power outages and tremendous pounding the jersey shore will take over the next 48 hours. when i come back i'll have the stats on hermine and the next heat wave. for now, it's beautiful morning and comfortably cool. >> hermine is making its presence felt in rehoboth beach, delaware, as the storm gets closer, the waves are higher and the wind gets stronger. businesses along boardwalk are beginning to sandbag their
9:35 am
doors. >> looking live in atlantic city, two beach concerts in atlantic city were canceled, live nation said the credit card you used to purchase the tickets will be automatically refunded. annie mccormick is in stone harbor, cape may county. >> reporter: i can show you the water is creeping up closer to the entrance because we're getting closer to the this morning's high tide which is after 11:00 a.m. here in stone harbor yesterday, officials were asking visitors to leave the island, not a mandatory evacuation, but asking them to leave, balls they are concerned -- because they are concerned if people left during a normal labor day weekend the other high tide that's going to happen later today would make it more difficult for people to leave the island. it's not this high tide they are
9:36 am
concerned about, it's the one later on. now, as you can see in the water, you can see the waves have definitely changed. it's rougher out here than it was when we initially got out of here. all morning i was telling you about the conditions, we are seeing the surfers jump in. they don't stay there for long. there was a surfer dragged out for two miles. they consider the conditions like a washing machine. those are the warnings for people in ton harbor him we'll have more updates about road closures and other things if you're down here coming up in the next half-hour. annie mccormick channel 6 "action news." back to you. >> folks need to heed the warnings. we caught up with folks hitting the boardwalk in ocean city. one man was getting in his morning run with a sleepy baby in the stroller. get out there right now and get your exercise or other activities done before hermine ruins those plans. >> it's a nice morning for a
9:37 am
run. >> let's check in with trish hartman in brigantine, atlantic county. >> all right, trish, how is the surf looking like where you are? >> reporter: it's definitely getting rough good morning. let's look at the ocean behind me. technically the beaches are closed. a number of people walking along the beach, it's beautiful and mild. police are not concerned with people walking on the sand, but in the water. that's what they don't want to see, the rip currents are strong, the waves are growing, the swells are bigger than normal. that's what police want to avoid people going in the water. voluntary evacuations have been issued for brigantine. if you flooded during sandy or earlier this year during a winter storm there's a chance your property could flood again. they reached out to those people saying you might want to think about leaving. secure your properties, loose
9:38 am
items, and be vigilant and make sure sure those things are taken care of. beach crews were out here this morning, they did this to all the beach entrances to keep the water from exiting the beach on to the streets to avoid any flooding that way. crews were working very early this morning and working on that yesterday to sure up the dunes to create these mini do you do n the mini beaches. they are hoping that the storm is taking a turn out to sea and hoping they are dodging a bullet so to speak at the shore. reporting live in brigantine, trish hartman channel 6 "action news." >> now, "action news" reporter, christy a letto rode along with the beach patrol getting a close
9:39 am
up look at the surf. >> go to to viewer our inter active map and follow our team of meteorologists on social media for all the updates. >> 9:39 we'll have more team coverage on hermine coming up next, including a live report from ocean city. >> sky6 live hd giving you a beautiful glimpse over penns landing. meteorologist chris sowers will have an update on the track, plus the seven-day forecast when we come back.
9:40 am
hillary clinton: i'm hillary clinton and i approve this message. vo: in times of crisis america depends on steady leadership. donald trump: "knock the crap out of them, would you? seriously..."vo: clear thinking... donald trump: "i know more about isis than the generals do, believe me." vo: and calm judgment. donald trump: "and you can tell them to

this under pressure. right now, we have >> taking a live look right now via, sky6 live hd, cape may, new jersey, you can see lots of folks enjoying the beach right now. it looks like hermine will make the westward turn to the coast. the question is how close will it get. our team of meteorologists are tracking it all for you. our meteorologists chris sowers and david murphy are in the studio this morning and checking the accuweather forecast. >> those who live along the coast of new jersey and delaware will be feeling the effects of hermine today and tomorrow. >> jennette reyes is in ocean city, jennette looks like you have company on the boardwalk this morning. >> reporter: now we do, this morning it was a little concerning, because a lot of people weren't getting out. tourist rs pushing back -- are pushing back their exit time.
9:43 am
look on my left side, the waves are rough, the water is rough. we've seen a person in the water surfing. a lot of tourists and people here brought it to our attention. they know officials don't want people in the water it's too rough and dangerous. balls it's so nice out, it's making it difficult to convince people it's not safe right now it will get worse as the day goes on. the boardwalk is very, very busy. people are staying here as opposed to going out on to the beach which is good, a lot of people enjoying the day, a lot of people on their bikes and it will look different in a matter of hours. if you live in the area, know your zone. the reason i'm telling you that, if you experienced flooding before, it's something you will see again. make sure you know where you are and whether or not you are
9:44 am
vulnerable to that. if this is the case, you are encouraged to leave, it's not a mandatory evacuation, if you stay, make sure you have everything you need in terms of medication and emergency can it in case it's difficult to get out tonight into tomorrow morning. jennette reyes, channel 6 "action news," back to you. >> people need to take the proper precautions. >> reporter: you saw folks on the beach, you don't want to go into the water. you look at the strength of a rip current we use the scale of 1 to 10, the normal rip current is a 6. today it's ten-plus. the pull is very strong. the waves are 7 to 10 feet they will continue to increase throughout the day. the rip currents will get worse throughout the day. the winds will pick up, as well. the difference is you're seeing sunshine, i hope it's not fooling people, we expect the
9:45 am

9:46 am
wednesday and thursday. how close to the coast does it get? that's the question mark at this point. the closer it is to the coastline, the worst the impact. the farther it is out to sea, the less the impact. right now we're a little up in the air as to how severe the storm will be. we're expecting one thing for certain, the flooding will be moderate to possibly major up and down the shoreline from lakehurst to wildwood. future tracker 6, we'll take a look at it, combination of sun and clouds, nothing going on, a nice comfortable day, overnight tonight, as the storm is getting closer, the outer edges. feeder bands work inland. heavy rains for the jersey shore 5:00 a.m. tomorrow morning followed by another one tomorrow afternoon. western suburbs same as today, combination of sun and clouds. location is key. the farther west you are, the better the weather will be. for the jersey shore, waves up to 15 feet. they will build throughout the day. major beach erosion is possible.
