6:17 pm
stopped issuing advisories on it. it's still producing rainfall. and most of that rain is right at the shore right now. not so much down at cape may, and the delaware beaches. but we are seeing some of that come into atlantic city, as you can see. sea isle city, long beach island getting quite a bit of rain over the last few hours. and that is the first rain from hermine in many of those areas. we have a few places getting wind gusts now. not as many. the places that are blank are not reporting strong wind gusts. mount holly at 28, wilmington at 26. it's a good thing hermine has weakened quite a bit, because it's closer to the coast than it's been at any time. we're still following that thing. got another heat wave, though. not today. got up to 88 today. the average high is 81. 90 tomorrow. 95 thursday. that's when the real heat
6:18 pm
starts. those three days, thursday, friday, saturday look like they're going to be mighty hot around here. and we could even be breaking some records. philadelphia's record, 96 degrees on thursday. predicting 95. i think saturday's record is going to be very close. places like mount holly, millville, may break records, too. last year this time it was really hot. but it didn't last like it is lasting now. the other thing that happens is, when it gets hot, you're drying out the ground. so you need more rain. doesn't look like we're going to get much, if any, over the next week. you can see the rain chances very low. dover, philadelphia, reading, atlantic city. so you're going to have to do your own watering of the lawns for a while. in philadelphia, tomorrow we've got 90 degrees. fairmount section. reading 89 degrees. it's not going to be all that humid tomorrow.

6:25 pm
for me while we were here together. >> sam also only has one week to learn the vikings offense. here he is. he may not start sunday. sean hill is listed as the staerter. it is a crash course for sam. >> i think it just takes time, takes reps. unfortunately we don't have a lot of either of those. i've had to learn new offenses in the past. i don't know if i've ever had to learn one quite this fast, or this much of a hurry. so, you know, yesterday kind of got thrown into the fire. >> don't forget to vote for our high school football blitz game of the week. head to to vote, or text 610-624-4111. allen iverson goes into the hall of fame friday night. i'm john clark. back to you.
