6:17 pm
a nightmare for folks in florida not just there but it will have far reaching impacts in georgia and along the carolina coastline, so, again, hurricane hermine there is a lot to get to. let me jump in and show you what it looks like right now. winds 70-85-mile s per hour. moving north, northeast at 15 miles per hour that makes it a category 1 storm. no paths taking it generally towards the northeast. we expect landfall from this system during the overnight hours tonight through early tomorrow on friday morning and i think that is through friday afternoon it is going to have significant impact in southern georgia towards savanna, a beautiful vacation destination. certainly not the place to be there. nor the coastline of the carolinas.
6:18 pm
see the tremendous rainfall. potential between 6-10 inches of rain. for lack of a better term it is going to an nightmare for friends in florida and especially southern georgia. back at home, this is what it is looking like if you are headed out to the game tonight. temperatures in the upper 60s by the 8:00 p.m. hour. temperatures currently outside in the low and mid-70s. so comfortable start this evening. however, we could see a couple of spot of high pressure up towards our north, what is going on here is it's circulating in the clockwise fashion and it's the air, the cooler air that is you have through the day today riding over the warmer lakes and that is inducing a few isolated lake effect showers that area of high pressure will begin to move off towards the east and venture further towards the south in the upcoming holiday weekend, meaning that more sunshine is
6:19 pm
you are heading out to perhaps the airport from the 2016 air show, it looks fantastic. but again, tonight an isolated shower can't be ruled out of the question. first thing tomorrow morning, although our future view paid out a little bit of groan here, will you wake up to a little bit more cloud cover though to start off your friday. but by friday afternoon, we'll call for more sunshine. temperatures tonight upper 50s, low 60s again, we'll hold on to the isolated shower chance, window nation seven day forecast enjoy the 70s tomorrow, we are in the low to mid-70s on your friday to wrap up your work week, upper 90s by saturday. and look what happens as we cruise toward the next work. summer answer gone anywhere just yet. back in the 90s by wednesday. if anyone is heading out to the air show this weekend, of course as you were saying before we heard planes right over our station, it was rocking and rolling thing.
6:20 pm
weekend for us. >> a gorgeous summer weekend. >> absolutely. it is the preseason finale for the browns. why important -- how important is the night, we should say for this nontraditionally important game. this traditionally not important game. jimmy is back from the stadium
6:22 pm
6:23 pm
preseason game of this year for the cleveland browns and a picture perfect night, now to tell us more about that, hey, jimmy. >> reporter: hello, russ, if they were all like this, i tell you what, sign me up. this is a beautiful night here at first energy stadium and the browns take on the chicago bears, they are both 0-3 coming into the game. at the top of the show we talked about the browns defense and how that is a big progress. the browns offense, maybe equally so. as they come into the game tonight the browns have been living in the preseason on the big play. but they have not taken the little chunks of yardage. they haven't been able to establish a rhythm offensively. but realistically that is hard to live by. you have to be able to prolong drives, take them down the field. first downs and that is what rg
6:24 pm
in game 4. >> you have to trust the guys around otherwise you won't be successful. i trust them, i trust the backs, it's about 1 guys being on the same page and we are getting to the point where we are getting it and we gotta get it more con sis tanly. so when the season rolls around everything is good. >> reporter: couple of notes for you to into night. the rookie from baylor, week against the buccaneers, did he not play well, he looked lost at times and they are expecting him to be a big play guy. so they have to get him the feel of the football rather early tonight of the and that is what they will attempt to do. now i don't remember gordon had a big welcome back -- josh gordon had a big welcome back. that went for a touchdown, a true josh gordon play.
6:25 pm
long time. he is suspended at the start of the year as he will not be back until game five when the browns take on the new england patriots here at first energy stadium. guys are playing for jobs here tonight. because the roster size goes down to 53 by the weekend so there are guys out there for instance andrew hawkins and taylor begin reel, two wide receiver that do the same thing, i don't think both of them make the team, one of them the huge system and for hugh jackson in cincinnati. begin reel is a young guy that has good speed. two guys on the bubble tonight but there are a lot more, too. >> some very talented young men in that room. obviously all of them can't stay. so, someone is going to get some really good players, at the same time i know we'll make sure that the guys we keep are the guys that we need to keep here to have a chance to help our football team.
6:26 pm
they play 17 straight games beginning tomorrow night against the marlins. but, they had a very good week when they knocked off the minneapolis -- minnesota twins and they swept them. the tigers also swept as they swept the white sox so their lead is 4.5 games and the magic number is 26 to children. a reminder tomorrow night game one is right here on channel 3, we'll have coverage from progressive field, start time is at 7:00 p.m. all right russ, back to you as we get set for the browns and bears, the 13th straight year that the browns and pers have ended the preseason against each other. >> i asked you about after game three, is deek all excite bad this game? >> is he three gatorades in i think he is ready to go. is he hydrated . should be fun. we'll be listening, jimmy. >> thanks, russ.
