>> beautiful. >> it's almost like that here. >> another nor'easter potential on the way. here's a look at some of the coastal flooding. normally at high tide you've got at least 10-15 you can see all the way up to the lifeguard stand you can't make out the jet i right now. the tide has come up we're seeing minor flooding, the coastal flood advisory remains in effect until about 2:00 this afternoon. after this morning's tide as i talked about yesterday, each additional tide will start getting a little bit better as the coastal low friday's nor'easter continues to work its way out to sea. so we're dealing with a little bit of a rough time this morning but it's mainly minor flooding. we're not seeing the tidal flooding like we saw yesterday. 46 degrees is today's high. the normal high is 49. high tide is occurring right now.
9:40 am
the tide is expected to run anywhere 2-3 feet above normal levels. we're still dealing with huge swells and huge breakers creating a lot oferosion all the way from cape may to point pleasant seaside heights. 40 degrees but you add on that wind and it feels like the 20s and 30s right now. 32 mile per hour in reading and 29 miles per hour in the poconos. here's the satellite and the radar. this little tail this ribbon of cloud cover is all connected to that coastal storm which is 1,000 miles off the coast. this is still some cloud cover from that storm. out to the west. we'll see a mixture of sun and cl time to time.

mid 40s wind chills in the 30s we'll see some shun shine and for monday morning into the afternoon same exact thing. maybe a mixture of sun and clouds a little breeze no precipitation falling. wind chills again into the 30s. then we get into this midweek time frame here this next nor'easter. it's going to jump the rockies becomes a nice little storm. the main low goes right up it transfers its energy off to a coastal low right there off the delmarva and as i talked about earlier the big question is is this storm already a full-blown coastal storm if that's the case we're going to see snow. but if it's infancy here and it gets going by the time it's to the north just a little bit of snow and wind here bigger snow up across new england you can see the lines. new england would once again take on probably at least tropical storm force winds and a lot of heavy snow. this is just one particular model, but the reason i'm showing you this is because i
9:42 am
want to show you the potential that this storm has. now it's uncertain where this heavier snow is going to track. it could be here and up into new england but right now this model has far more snow in lehigh valley that is 6-12 inches of snow. this is just one model but it shows you what the impacts that the storm may be here. overnight tonight it's cold partly cloudy center city. the exclusive accuweather 7-day forecast looks like this. the next three days look fairly quiet. 46 today, 47 tomorrow, all three days look for a mixture of sun and clouds. right now the early call for wednesday is rain changing over to snow with some accumulation likely in parts of the area. the winds are going to pick up to at least 30-40 miles per hour. that storm clears thursday friday and saturday all look nice. it's just one day this week but that one day could potentially be nasty. >> 9:45 your time.

oped with one storm. like what just happened. let's go over to the weather center and potentially another one is on the way. as we look at the view the satellite and the radar you can see the lines. those lines are actually wrapping around the center of that nor'easter which is about a good thousand miles off the coast sitting right here. this is all the wind flow when you look at the size of this storm ialmost 1500 miles from west to east across the northern portions of the atlantic. just a massive storm. right now in philadelphia 41 degrees with a dew point of 27. pressure reading is rising from 30.19 inches and your winds are out of the north northwest at 15 miles per hour and that makes these 40s that you see across south jersey and delaware feel more like the 30s out there right now. allentown 38 philadelphia 31 dover 42 and reading at 39. winds are still ripping out of the northwest. these are gusts and we're seeing those gusts anywhere from 25 to
10:09 am
30 miles per hour so remember friday they were 60 to 70 miles per hour. yesterday they were 40 to 50 miles per hour. today they're going to be in the 20-30 mile per hour range and we're already picking that up now and as we get into tomorrow it gets a little bit better and hopefully tuesday we have no wind at all and it should be a nice comfortable day. nice and relaxing. right now 35 miles per hour in dover 28 in allentown, 23 in philadelphia. believe it or not it's on the tail end of that nor'easter. the center ask right there. remember -- is right there. remember this thing came here and cut back into new england and then it's now dipping back this way. it's running intothe canadian maritimes and getting into the greenland area and it can't move along on its way. another storm is approaching from the west and that could be our troublemaker. here's some good news national weather service just updated this. it looks like the coastal flood advisory for new jersey has expired still p for the delaware beaches. good news it looks like the
10:10 am
advisory has been lifted for the jersey shore. future tracker 6. sun afternoon temperatures are in the mid 40s. wind chills in the 30s. and as we head into monday same exact thing. high temperatures in the 40s combination clouds, wind chills are stuck in the 30s. tuesday looks comfortable, quiet. high temperatures around 46 or 47 then we get into wednesday. 46 in philadelphia today, reading 45 millville 47 48. we'll stay partly sunny and breezy. that takes us into wednesday. here comes the first of two areas of low pressure. this one rides up into the great lakes states bringing rain snow, gustyplains. then a coastal low develops on the tail end of this thing right off the delmarva and you can see how the lines get close together again. that's a strong gusty wind. this isn't a bad track for us. if the low is this far off the coast, this is just a glancing blow. if the center is closer to the jersey shore, it's going to be a problem for us.
10:11 am
nonetheless every forecast model says this is a wallop for new england once again. won't see that here. this is going to be a weaker storm than friday but sits still something to deal with. increasing confidence that this storm will affect us on wednesday. right now it looks like rain to snow could be plowabparts of the area. this time around the winds are only around 30 miles per hour. we have three fairly quiet days 46 today, 45 monday, 47 tuesday, rain to snow for wednesday. guys? >> all right chris, thank you. all right. get out, darkest hour, lady bird, the post dun kirk,water. >> one of these films will be deemed the best of the best tonight as hollywood honors the top films actors and directors of 2017. >> live with a preef view of
