5:00 pm
by deputies on campus during a shootout. >> we have 13 people killed and possib possibly 20 others hurt. we'll continue to follow this on and a live report with the latest coming up in our next half hour. but the other big story is the latest on hurricane joaquin, and it continues to strengthen and it's a category four. it continues to batter the bahamas as, and continues to intensify over the next day, this is the satellite image of joaquin, still too early to tell if it will make landfall in the u.s. but everyone on the east coast should be on alert in the coming days. look at this image, nasa captured joaquin from space from high above the other, the hurricane is packing heavy rain
5:01 pm
and winds and is already producing significant storm surge, trish hartman is live at the jersey shore and eva pilgram is further inland in south jersey to see how people are preparing there. lets check with our meteorologists, cecily tynan and adam joseph. >> we have significant developments with hurricane joaquin today, as you mentioned it's now an extremely dangerous category four hurricane, you look at this visible satellite. you can see the deep eye over the bahamas, just battering the islands, they could get in areas up to 20 inches of rain, now joaquin continues to push to the southwest because this is really key, we talk about how joaquin can get captured by an upper level low and push inland, if it continues to the southwest it can miss the capturing, that means it could head more northeast and one factor with the storm that is this strong,
5:02 pm
have you the measly upper level low, it's like wrestling a bear, it's hard to capture a storm of this size, that is another indication that there is a good chance that this storm could be tracking out to sea and that is what we all hope. the spaghetti plot shows models all over the place, most of them went into the north carolina yesterday and now the trend has really shifted to the east and that is good, that is good, that means the trends are heading out to sea instead of inland, still too early to call the all clear, a 40% chance from north carolina to the jersey shore and 10% new england and the best chance is heading out to sea, i hope when we have two more updates by 11:00, we can increase that percentage but that being said that doesn't mean the jersey shore will not take a battering. lets head to the meteorologist, adam joseph.
5:03 pm
>> officials are making all the precautions at the shore because we have another enty still going to bring coastal flooding and beach erosion over the latter part of this week and into the upcoming weekend, because of high pressure to the northern and low pressure to the south and a front stalled along the eastern seaboard and all of that moisture pushed inland and piling up at the shore with the northeastly wind and you can see the bands of rain lifting to the north and it will continue friday and friday night especially. yesterday the models were thinking 5 or 6 inches of rain and that is because there was some sort of twist to get moisture from joaquin, now that joaquin is possibly going out to sea, the numbers dropped from an inch to 2 inches of rain in the area, we may not see widespread inland flooding but we'll get coastal flooding because of wind, look at the wind gusts tomorrow afternoon at the shore,
5:04 pm
low 40s and 30s inland and 20s in the lehigh valley, and that win will continue for a good 36 hours or so, 50 miles per hour at noon time on saturday, with the wind continuing to push against the shore, you get all the water to pile up, between now and sunday, every time we see high tide, the next one is overnight tonight between 10:30 and 12:30 or so. we are look agent hod rate to major flooding at the shore and at the bay as you get the persistent wind eating away at the sand and our barriers along cape may up to long beach island as well as rehoboth beach, when cecily tynan comes back we'll let you know when the winds will ease in the seven day, peen while, pennsylvania governor tom wolf and new jersey governor chris christie, both have plans in place for joaquin. christie declared a state of emergency for the garden state
5:05 pm

5:24 pm
amazing though the first day of october it really feels like fall, yesterday in the 80s and right now chilly, 58 in philadelphia and allentown 57 and millville 56 and wilmington 57. 21 degrees cooler in sea isle city and atlantic city and 20 degrees cooler in allentown and you need the jacket and the umbrella today. the weather pattern we are in, we have a stationary front off the eastern seaboard, if you look near charleston, south carolina, there is a surface low developing, that is not joaquin but that will funnel in tropical rain ahead of the hurricane, and we are looking at the potential for significant flooding down near charleston, this is showing more than 15 inches of rain and notice here philadelphia through sunday, we are looking at a lot
5:25 pm
less rain, an inch and a half of rain, we are expecting rain and not expecting inland flooding and the problem is the coastal flooding from the easterly flow, 10:00 tonight and lots of clouds and mainly offshore, we'll see generally light rain in the morning, generally to the south of philadelphia is east of the i-95 corridor, and the area moistens up for the evening, take an umbrella tomorrow evening, 6:00 heavy rain and that lasts into the early morning hours when it tapers off to showers, saturday and sunday not a washout and clouds and scattered showers, the big factor is the wind, we are looking at wind gusts friday into saturday inland, 15 to 25 miles per hour. and gusts to 45 miles per hour and along the coast getting battered sustained from the northeast, piling up the water 35 miles per hour and gust as long the coast up to 55 miles per hour, and again this is all
5:26 pm
ahead of joaquin. not directly related to the hurricane, this is the lightest though, an extremely dangerous category four hurricane, on a scale of one to five, maximum sustained winds of 135 miles per hour and in the bahamas and moving southwest at 6 miles per hour, that is pretty key because there is a good chance it could miss the connection with the trough and that means it would not head inland but head out to sea, as it moves farther north it encounters more wind shear and colder waters and it will definitely decrease in intensity to a cat one and this cone of uncertainty has shifted and there is a good chance it will head out to sea, not ready to give the all clear yet, we have to look at a few model runs. the five-day at 5:00, tomorrow a wind driven rain, 55 degrees with showers and again not all day rain, 60 degrees, on sunday

5:52 pm
that easterly wind will get us in trouble at the shore at times of high tide. as we look at double scan live radar we are dealing with clouds and drizzle in southern knowledge and delaware but a pocket of moderate rainfall north and west of center city along the conshohocken curve and the blue route and northeast extension especially here in landsdale, we see the bright yellow lifting from norristown to 422, wet roadways and slow going, take it easy on the roads, as the rain continues to fall. here is the numbers, we are only in the upper 50s through the entire viewing area, that ocean of 69 degrees and the win coming out of the north-northeastly direction. there is a stalled front to the south and that continues its journey to the north and west and that throws more moisture our way and we have strong pressure to the north and weak low pressure to the south and there are opposite forces in the
5:53 pm
atmosphere and this is why we have strong winds, setting up for friday and saturday, it's a tight pressure gradient, two opposite pressures, it sends the wind out of the east northerly direct, and that is detrimental to the shore, we are talking winds 45 to 50 miles per hour into the day of sunday, that is hour after hour of persistent wind creating major coastal flooding and damaging beach erosion and none of this has to do with hurricane joaquin and the next high tides we have to watch at 11:00 tonight and 11:25 tomorrow morning and then around midnight tomorrow night and then at 12:24 p.m., that is when you see the flooding and not only coastal but the back bays as well. here is future tracker with the rain, light showers around, early tomorrow morning, the earliest is steadiest east of
