alert meteorologist bill henley with the most accurate forecast for your neighborhood. bill? >> this is a powerful nor'easter today. wind gusts topped 55 miles per hour at the shore. have already topped 45 miles per hour inland. and are likely to continue this morning for the rest of the morning and through this afternoon. you mentioned traffic lights. we got a report that a traffic light has been blown down in atlantic city on pacific avenue. that's how strong the winds are. we'll likely see more damage. coastal flooding and power outages. the flooding going to wait until high tide this afternoon between 4:00 and 5:00. at the shore and little later in the back bays. power outages at any time in the day today with trees being downed in strong gusty winds that will be unrelenting for the afternoon. those winds already peaked at 50 miles per hour in philadelphia and we have seen wind gusts of 57 miles per hour at the shore. that's a look at the seas in cape may. a rough one through the day and
tonight in cape may. the wind gusts earlier topped 50 miles per hour in coatesville. now 40. 40 in philadelphia. stronger in wilmington at 45 miles per hour and back up to 44 in wildwood and holding at 48 miles per hour in atlantic city. those winds blowing all day long will likely weaken more branches and trees leading to more problems as the day goes on. and then there's the rain. which is just starting to get going in our area. and there's a potential for heavy rain fall in the day today. krystal is tracking that. >> yeah. really it's the afternoon in the evening seeing the heaviest pockets of rain in the area. this rain not too rough to deal with and unfortunately that means the worst rain at your commute home. so here's what we're dealing with right now. radar and satellite, this is more a light to steady rain to pick up in new jersey and then passing into philadelphia. now extending into parts of the p.a. suburbs, as well.
heavier rain just barely see it on the screen. producing now some lightning, pocket thunderstorms. that's still to our southwest. let's look closer what we have right now. so the deeper green, a steady rain near philadelphia and stretches up to king prussia and aven avington, as well. continues to the shore point. ship bottom and tracking north up to about monmouth county and down to near cape may county and now widespread showers popping up but the strength not there quiet. that's further back. the center of the storm is still well to the southwest so as this continues to move our direction, some of the steadier storms and possibly isolated thunderstorm to pick up in our neck of the woods but that's later today and the heaviest rain moves in 2:00 p.m. through 10:00 p.m. and that's what the gusts still 40 to 50 miles per hour. rain totals one inch and then more detail on rain totals

some minor tidal flooding as the water came crashing out of the back bays and spilled on to the streets. and more tidal flooding, perhaps of the moderate level, a possibility with this afternoon's high tide. but the main issue here at the shore really is the wind. it is really hard to deal with and some folks are finding out. >> i almost fell down. the lights are down. this is really bad right here. >> the wind is starting to pick up pretty good and i'm just stopping over here for a cup of coffee and going back home and hunker down a little bit. >> reporter: a good idea to do that, hunker down inside if you possibly can. number of power outages is going up as the wind speed is going up. since i last talked with you at the top of the hour, more power outages reported by atlantic city electric and last check, that number more than 5,000

needles all over the place and in the a great situation and tell you in this boxy storm vehicle, i used a ton of gas to get down here and a fight to keep the vehicle straight on the road because the wind is pulling you and i think you can probably see the wires up top. i also want to show you some video from our loyal delaware viewers. we have some video first from claymont. a utility pole down on philadelphia pike and also some video somebody sent in of downed power lines on cars. so yes, wherever you are in the state feeling the wind, the rain. live back to bethany, see the wind on the power lines above me and at this point, the flooding isn't bad and be careful about there. don't go through anything that's not smart. i would go through some spots and decided not to do it but back up even in a vehicle to handle it. not worth it. you can see when's happened here on the sides of the road, shoulder areas filling in and a
couple hours before the road is covered with water, too. be very, very careful. we'll monitor the roads in delaware. live in bethany beach, delaware, tim furlong, nbc 10 news. >> thank you. pamela osborne checking out the roads inland in roxboro. you said you're having the same trouble as tim furlong, keeping the car on the road. >> reporter: absolutely, tracy. it's getting a point now where you can definitely feel the winds whipping around as you drive on to the roadway. now i'm going to flip the camera around to give you a view. a little bit of light rain and the big story for us right now is the winds. we are on ridge avenue right now and roxboro and seen leaves and branches down and this morning elsewhere and showing you video of a tree that fell down. now, this is right near ridge
