there's a difference with the storm coming in closer today than what would have happened a couple of days ago. now the center of the storm is up at such a high latitude that the on-shore winds that tend to give significant coastal flooding are all in new england. around here we're getting winds dropping down out of the north and that's if anything counteracting the piling up of water. nonethele nonetheless we do have a situation out there with the storm still close to us where it is churning things up along the ocean front and we do have a high risk of rip currents p this is good for our jerseys, delaware beaches and up the coast. you want to listen to the lifeguard. yesterday you were able to get in up to your knee. only do what the lifeguards say. we have the surf churning up a bit. the heaviest is farther north from our beaches with 9-foot waves and only a 6 to 4-foot
wave. there is a chance of areas around atlantic city of the surf getting up to maybe 6 to 10 feet but not as high as it was over the weekend an in through labor day. nonetheless we do have a coastal flood advisory as of about an hour ago for the lower delaware bay, the ocean front and the back bays until 4:00 today. there is some lingering concern of minor coastal flooding. high tide is already in on the ocean front so if you're near the ocean and you're not seeing flooding, you're not going to at this point. the back bays tend to be an hour or two later, we'll see somewhere between 2:00 and 3:00 is the best chance of back bay flooding. again this is minor, so it's places that usually flood first, so if you have your car parked here, you want to get it out of here. i'll be back with the afternoon forecast and the beginning of what will likely be heat wave number 7 coming up in our exclusive accu-weather 7-day. >> of course with another

meteorologist david murphy is back now and we're still talking about hermine. it's been a pleasant labor day weekend. >> it was. not totally out of the effects of the storm. we couldn't do a lot of swimming, still is the main effect. we are dry and there's a shower related to hermine well off to the east and it's not making it here as of now. as we take a look outside, the action cam out earlier in hamilton township, new jersey and it looks like we could use a little extra water in that creek and unfortunately we're not looking at a lot of additional rain around the region, probably
not until early next week. 83 degrees it has warmed up as expected and the dew point at 60 just on the threshold of what we would consider humid. and winds are running north northwest at 17 miles per hour so there's a bit of a breeze out there. you feel that as you step outside. 86 in allentown, 81 in reading, 83 in trenton, 84 in millville and 78 in cape may. hermine is still rotating off our coast as we expected it would and over the next couple of days it doesn't look like it's going to do a whole lot. it will move a little bit closer to our coast line and probably by tomorrow night will make its way closer to the tip of long island and cape cod. it's not producing as much rain as it was before and the winds wrapping around the storm are putting most of the on shore flow up until new england. we do have some effects, still some rough surf at the beaches and there's minor coastal
flooding. we are expecting a fair amount of sunshine with just a few fair weather clouds across the rest of the region and there might be a scattered shower. lehigh valley, mostly sunny and a bit breezy today. high of 89 degrees and at the shore we've got that issue with rip currents and rough surf. 78 is the high. we are after labor day and it could be that on some beaches you don't have lifeguards and i'll remind you this is a high risk of rip currents, it's not safe to be in the water. yet the most we saw lifeguards allowing in some spots people going up to their ankles or needs. i would discourage you to get into the water and do deep swimming. the way to escape rip currents swim north or south. rough surf even without the rip currents could give you physical injury to back and neck. 88 degrees mostly sunny and
breezy in philadelphia. when i say mostly sunny, there are some clouds around but expect it to be pretty bright. 71 degrees mainly clear overnight, less wind and pretty comfortable. and then tomorrow we start to see the influence of a cold front that will be slowly drifting toward the area. that front and the flow along it will pick up hermine and push it out in that direction. tomorrow we do get into the 90s, slightly humid as we go through the day and it looks like that could be the beginning of heat wave number 7. 88 degrees is today's high. hotter and a bit more humid tomorrow with a high of 91 and it's the mid 90s on thursday, friday and saturday we'll be up close to record highs in through here and as we get into saturday of course if you're headed to temple football or union soccer or on sunday to the eagles, you'll want to bring along those cool drinks or plan to buy them. sunday we're back into the 80s, there could be some thunderstorms with a front coming through, and on monday sunny and warm we will
transition into nicer weather. rip currents along the shore today, wouldn't be surprised to see the rough surf continue tomorrow. eventually hermine will get out of here. >> thank you, david. across the delaware valley the school bell is ringing for the first time today. students were eager to get inside and start a new year. a few hugs helped to get the morning started off the right way. >> still ahead on action news at 12:30, a former fox news anchor settles a lawsuit. find out how much millions of dollars she's expected to get. >> a former nfl quarterback goes back to college after his off-field troubles wrecked his promising football career.
