>> you definitely want to keep that umbrella handy. let's go to glenn "hurricane" schwartz. you have the timing? >> yes. and despite all of the clouds, the timing is not in the next few hours. we need rain but this is going to be concentrated in a short period of time and a lot of wind with it even though this is not a classic severe weather season, even though it's not the time of day that we generally get severe weather, there is that threat if you get the right conditions. it can happen. now let's look at the first alert that we have for the entire area. generally, 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., 7:00 a.m. on the western side and 3:00 towards the shore as everything moves west to east. the thunderstorms are possibly severe with damaging winds and localized flooding because of the leaves clogging up the drains, not that we're getting that much rain. here's one computer model that's
really showing a whole lot of wind. these are wind gusts predictions as we head into the morning. over 40 miles an hour as the line of thunderstorms come in and that continues through the morning. some places close to 50. there's 53 in avalon. and then it dies down in the afternoon and into the evenings. this is not something that is going to last all day. it's just going to be concentrating and you can start to see some of the rain back towards pittsburgh but this is the real big part of this. toerpds have been confirmed in north carolina and south carolina with that line. just in the last hour or so. temperatures in the 70s, which is pretty warm. especially considering that we haven't had any sunshine. current winds out of the southeast, 10 to 15 to 20 miles per hour as the winds continue to increase a bit and that could
affect the eagles game, especially towards the end as the wind speed goes up, the chance of any kind of shower goes up towards the end of the game. but we're not going to get all of that heavy stuff and severe weather during the game or even after the game. it will be morning. and here's that model showing those thunderstorms. right there, during the morning rush, in the i-95 corridor and then later on today, this model shows redevelopment right along the coastline. that is some really nasty stuff tomorrow morning up to new york city. if that happens, that's looking severe. and then the west winds come in and brings the drier air and colder air. tomorrow it is not dry and it is not cold. 70 for a high in chestnut hill. it's not going to storm all day but there are going to be storms and heavy rain periods just about everywhere. a local landmark gets a lot
of attention this time of year and that's because norristown built in the late 1700s is said to be haunted. the original owner and his wife, children and servants still call this place home. they are still in there and want the home to be shown. there is still laughter in there. >> even the family dog lucky a german shepherd can reportedly be felt brushing up against your leg. >> ooh. tomorrow, we'll take you inside a haunted bed and breakfast with centuries of secrets hidden behind the walls. running into road blocks after her husband's sudden death. >> i was angry about it, that, you know, what do they think, somebody is going to call up and lie about, you know, that their
husband died? >> she was trying to get her late husband's finances in order but a local gym wouldn't cancel his membership. how nbc 10 responds took action ahead at 5:00. a community on edge. police try to connect the dots in a string of murders. the one thing about the crime that has them questioning the motive.
three murders in just two weeks in money community. tonight, neighbors are scared and they want answers. >> "nbc nightly news" is taking a closer look and kerry sanders shows us the surveillance video that could play a key role. >> reporter: this is the community gripped by fear. the memorial right here is for the three victims who were slain in a two-week period in an area less than a mile square. the authorities say it may be a serial killer on the loose. the real difficulty here, the three victims do not have any object jo obvious connections and the serial killer has been using a pistol or a gun of some type and authorities say that is highly unusual for a serial killer, choosing victims at random. i'm kerry sanders. i'll have the details coming up on "nbc nightly news." now back to you.
>> kerry sanders has those details tonight on "nbc nightly news" with lester holt at 6:30 that. is right after nbc 10 news at 6:00. well, next at 5:00, the eagles prepare to face off with their division arririvals, the washington redskins. >> john clark is at lincoln financial field where it will all go down in a few hours. >> reporter: it feels like september weather out here for a fall classic. eagles/redskins, a lot on the line. we'll hear from carson wentz coming up next. a driver losing control and slamming into a ditch in alabama, the same storm system heading our way. glenn "hurricane" schwartz breaking down when the bad weather will arrive. and all new at 6:00, impossible to escape. new jersey state troopers helping in puerto rico discover a problem that is making
hurricane recovery so painfully slow. he's a husband, father, veteran... but most of all, he's a fighter. chris brown has never been afraid to take on the big fights. that's why he stood up to republicans and democrats alike to fight the north jersey casinos and the takeover of atlantic city. chris brown is fighting to protect jobs in our region... a true champion for the working men and women of atlantic county. on november 7th, let's keep him fighting for us. chris brown for state senate, he's on our side.

linc when the game kicks off at 8:30 tonight. this is some of the best football that the birds have played in years. >> and some of the best weather that they have had here at home, as john said before, since the season opener. we have coverage with glenn "hurricane" schwartz but we'll get to him in a moment. >> first we'll go to john clark live at the linc. the eagles can make a statement with a win tonight. >> absolutely they can. i think with how nice the weather, people made it a half day from their jobs and they are tailgating in the parking lot out there. you said it. this is a statement game. the eagles have the best record at 5-1 and if they could win this game tonight against the redskins, they would have a 2 1/2-game lead in the nfc east. let's look at that first meeting. the eagles are trying to sweep the redskins for the first time in four years. if the birds were to lose tonight, they would only have a half game lead.
this is huge. they want to have a big question going into the second half of the season. and carson wentz, he is 2-0 so far at home. 6-2 last year. so that is 8-2 here at the linc as the quarterback for the eagles, he loves playing at home. >> there's nothing like playing at home. starting the season off the way we did with the tough schedule the way we did, we have a lot of things to focus on and keep getting better at. but, again, we're real excited to be here at home. >> reporter: and malcolm jenkins said five wins was not our goal. we are nowhere near where we want to end up. so obviously this is just a stepping stone but it's a huge one tonight. i'm john clark, live at the linc, a lot more at 6:20. >> see you then, john.
thank you. the wind is kicking up across the area. this is above the link. citizens bank park is in the background. not moving a bit. >> the wind will be increasing virtually every hour as we head toward the end of the game as the strong weather system heads our way that we have a first alert out for and that is for tomorrow. this is not going to be affecting us during the game, only the wind increasing. that will be an impact timing could be severe. the main threat is damaging winds but there is still a threat of a brief flash flood, partly because of those leaves. and even the tornado threat is
not nearly as small as it normally is in this part of the country with a front coming through. so we're going to have to wachl f watch for spinning in the radar. it's not going to bother us until well after midnight and that is with the cold front that is going to be moving in and 5:00, 6:00, 7:00 a.m., coming right through the philadelphia area and gusts of 35 to 40 in general and up to 50 miles an hour. more on the timing of this and what comes behind this, coming up. >> it's heavy rain and storms that move into our region. download the nbc 10 app. sign up for alerts to find out when threatening weather is headed for your neighborhood. new at 5:00, the man accused of shooting six people in two different states will be tried in delaware first.

>> the first alert for the more severe weather is for the entire area starting around 7:00 a.m. we're not talking about threats for the eagles game. 7:00 a.m. in western sections and 3:00 toward the shore. thunderstorms possibly severe with damaging winds, localized flooding and we'll keep an eye on that. there are some of the storms getting towards pittsburgh. this is the most severe part. there have been confirmed tornadoes and damage in parts of north and south carolina just in the last couple of hours and tornado watches now extended into parts of virginia. temperatures above average and the humidity is way above average and if you had the right conditions, it doesn't matter what time of the year or what time of the day it is for severe weather to break out. look at these temperatures in delaware. 73 in wilmington right now.
and this temperature is not really going to drop much. during the night tonight, close to 70 at the delaware beaches and in the 70s everywhere else. it stays in the 70s for the eagles game. the wind gradually increasing as we go through the night and sometimes the swirling wind can affect the kicking game david acres used to have problems with that from time to time. at 7:00 a.m., the remnants of that line, the computer model is not agreeing on the timing of this or the intensity, which makes it rather interesting. you can see the thunderstorms, 11:00 a.m., into new jersey, it looks like the greatest threat of severe weather would be from the philadelphia area eastward and rain lasting longer in new jersey. look at that. that's dinnertime right at the shore with some of the worst weather and then the drier air starts to move in behind that.
as we go through the day tomorrow, the temperatures don't really change very much. and if we do get a little bit of sunshine late in the day, like especially in lehigh valley, temperatures go back up into the 70s. so tomorrow, it's not going to cool down at all. it is going to cool down after that. let's take a look at the ten-day temperature going down to 67 for a high on wednesday. 60 for a high on thursday. and then we warm back up again. friday, a beautiful day. look at the difference between saturday and sunday. the next eagles game, it doesn't look like it's going to have good weather. steady rain, temperatures only in the 50s and then even colder next monday. adding frustration to heartache. >> when a man unexpectedly passed away, his wife kept getting billed for his gym membership. how you can help prevent this from happening to a loved one.
