plymouth back down to the cape, coolest north and west of town where the skies are cleared. look at what's coming, though. to our south, areas of rain that have been moving up from south to north here. so there is a wave of low pressure that will go by. so pockets of rain will fill in near. the wettest period will be for your morning commute. patchy fog out there this morning is locally dense. we have quarter mile visibility with falmouth, which is something to be aware of. otherwise, areas of rain, downpours, south coast and cape especially. breaks of sun do come out by lunchtime. 66. so an above average day. we should top out in the lower 70s. breezy and mild, sunset at 6:06. just an isolated shower that will come through this evening. the cooler air does come in. i'll let you know when the temperatures get chilly for highs coming up. good morning, robi. >> good morning, danielle.
expected for this time of the morning. only one problem showing up down at braintree. a reported object on the roadway. no reports of any lane closures there. chris, kathryn? developing this morning some really tense moments in a local neighborhood. s.w.a.t. teams used a flash grenade to get inside this condo in bellingham. a man who reportedly stabbed another man was inside and refused to come out last night. several condos nearby were evacuated. police did arrest the man. police didn't say, though, how bad the victim's injuries were. developing, two firefighters have died, two others hurt in this massive building fire in kansas city. the two firefighters actually carried two people out of that building before they were killed. part of the roof collapsed on firefighters there. crews continued to battle the flames overnight.
investigators still don't know how that fire startedp. we're getting a closer look at the brookline firefighter accused of attacking a man at a restaurant. investigators say that he was angry that the other man was just taking too long to make his order. >> this morning, that firefighter is off the job. nicole jacobs is live in brookline with the latest. good morning, nicole. you, chris. it was here on the sidewalk in the presence of witnesses and surveillance video, none of firefighter from allegedly attacking a customer. outside of this brookline anna's taquerias, surveillance video captured the assault now under investigation. it was sunday night after a slow-moving line inside spilled over to violence. >> it seems out of the ordinary that something like that would happen. >> reporter: joseph ward was allegedly behind the attack. a photo of him from the boston
side, alleging he called the victim a homeless expletive and threw food and bottlessal him and punched him multiple times until a witness yelled stop money. >> a position doesn't define someone's character. >> reporter: ward was arrested for the assault many say he could have and should have avoided. that victim was taken to the hospital for an evaluation. town officials say the firefighter is on administrative leave this morning. nicole jacobs, wbz this morning. it's 5:04 right now and the democrats' turn in the spotlight after two republican presidential debates. tonight's candidates for the democratic nomination will debate policies and qualifications. good morning, bree. >> good morning, chris. this debate will be radically different than the republican debates we've seen so far. not only because most of the candidates are on the polar opposite of the political spectrum but also because
there's only half as many candidates as the republican field so democrats have more time to talk and potentially break out of the pack. on stage tonight are hillary clinton, bernie sanders, lincoln chafey, former governor of maryland martin o'malley and jim webb. hillary clinton is already in vegas, making an unscheduled stop joining a union rally, a crowd of mostly latino workers. in the back drop, trump's international hotel. bernie sanders spoke to a no labels crowd in new hampshire. he says he is not doing mock debates in preparation. still the big story line is can any of the other three break out of the pack? o'malley might be the closest match to bernie sanders' record. lincoln chafee is only a recent
convert to the party. he's been a liberal republican and independent for most of his career both in the senate and as governor. webb is a former secretary of the navy who positions himself as the anti-career politician. will vice president joe biden show up for the cnn debate? if he does, that will dominate the headlines tomorrow. kathryn, back to you. jeb bush is in new hampshire this week. today he's giving a speech on repealing and replacing obama care. in manchester, he released details on plans that increases tax credits to let consumers buy coverage. no word on how many people could be left without insurance. the former florida governor is expected to release more details before heading to town halls in keene and lebanon. hundreds are expected at the statehouse for a public hearing on several education bills. many have too do with charter schools.
at these bills. good morning, susie. >> reporter: good morning, chris. parents, teachers and students expected to descend on the education committee to talk about charter schools. charlie baker is expected to have a conversation about that before the committee this morning. governor baker would be supporting a bill that would create more in the next year or so. there are currently 80 operating in the state of massachusetts. baker is a long time supporter of this type of education, and more parents each year are fighting to get them into the privately operated and publicly funded institutions. more than 37,000 students are
currently on waiting lists for charter schools for this school year. critics say this would create a two-tiered education system. they are expected to begin debating this and a dozen other bills this morning. we're live on beacon hill, susie steimle, wbz news this morning. it is 5:08 right now on your tuesday morning. this morning, grief counselors will be on hand at a dedham school. a 16-year-old athlete dies 30 minutes after this picture was taken. she collapsed on the field and never got back up. doctors say she had a passionive brain hemorrhage and there was not much -- had a massive brain hemorrhage, and there was not much else they could do. >> i just keep thinking she will come bounding through the back door and say this is a terrible joke. it was probably something she
knew about it, and there was no way to detect it. fortunately it was quick and she didn't suffer too much. >> a memorial of rubber duckies, her favorite, is growing on the field there. in honor of their teammate and friend they will never forget. her funeral is set for thursday. we know a new hampshire woman missing for weeks was a murder victim. police found the body of sue hutchison inside the wall of her home. police searched the site against after family members discovered a strange odor there. investigators believe her roommate killed her. he committed suicide last week in a motel. and the trial continues for chism, who is accused of killing his teacher. is he being tried as an adult.

welcome back. we've seen a lot of sharks here. this is in california. this is off the famed alcatraz area. they didn't put their feet in the water, needless to say. >> i feel like every week there was a shark video or shark sighting all summer. >> you know what? conservation. >> true. sharks have got to eat.
>> let's get a check of the weather. >> how's it going, danielle? >> did you like yesterday? >> oh, it was so nice. we? yesterday. >> today, the afternoon will be okay, but this morning, there are areas of wet weather. so the kids need the umbrella or at least the rain coat. take a look at this picture. barry burbank visited these kids, you guys last week. this is east kingston, new hampshire. third, fourth, and fifth graders. they were the winners of the 2013 elementary school of excellence in new hampshire. can you see barry in there, by the way? it's like, where's barry kind of like where's waldo? he had a blast at this school there and had so much fun. thanks to the kids for having a great time with barry. meantime, the southern new breaks.

a few of the showers may come in during the late evening. tomorrow morning, we start with sunshine. thursday looks like a beautiful day. it turns cooler each day step by step as we head through the next several. then there's some chilly air notice, yes some snow across canada. that's a sign of how chilly the air is. temperatures today. low to mid-70s. tonight we drop back into the 50s and some 40s. tomorrow, not bad, mid to upper 60s. accuweather seven-day, cooler. scattered showers friday. a look at that on sunday. highs only in the upper 40s. traffic and weather together. >> wouldn't that be great if

welcome back. com commies is -- compromise is becoming a dirty word in politics. >> reporter: the forum put together by no labels, a bipartisan group wants to replace the acid flowing through our political discourse with something more productive. on one side, you had the philosophy of the organizers that what's wrong with our politics is "the hyper partisan viewpoint that leaves far too many of our leaders and silt zens to completely dismiss, ignore, or question the motives of people from the other party." on the other side, you had one of the guest speakers, donald trump, who either didn't know or didn't care what no labels stands for.
according to politico, trump served up his trademark school yard style references to president obama and the challengers instead of challenging the content of the recent interview on "60 minutes." he said president obama bombed. he tried to talk over a young woman in the crowd and claimed laughably that he only insults other candidates after they've been "nasty to him." it escapes me how any of that improves our political culture. he's succeeding so far by exploiting resentiment and venom, not diffusing it. senator lindhty graham a past target of trump ridicule told supporters that trump's ideas with are gibberish, quited snide label at an event devoted to avoiding them.

there are 40s on the map where we had mostly cloudy skies. 46 in orange and lower 60s from plymouth back down to the cape. tracking rain, too. a little wave of low pressure. rain, downpours and rumbles of thunder are approaching block island. this rain is going to advance in from south to north. so between now and 7:00 a.m., it will buzz back down to the cape. i think rain will spread from worcester to providence as well. lunchtime, upper 60s. lee 70s by -- low 70s by 4:00 p.m. it looks like any clouds will stay in place by the evening. an isolated shower has temperatures cruising back into the 50s. i have cooler air in the forecast. robi? starting to see our first big backup north and south of the city.

create a moratorium. this comes just days after the state would add up to a dozen each year. also today a minimum wage rally at the statehouse. >> hundreds are expected to argue for a $15 an hour minimum wage for fast food workers, and retail employees. susie steimle, it is a big check today. chris and kathryn. should minimum wage be raised as one of the big questions that's going to be debated at the statehouse and a group that believes it should be is going to rally on the statehouse steps at 11:30 this morning. currently, minimum wage in massachusetts is $9 an hour. it will be going up to $11 an hour by 2017, but this group says that's not enough. they want to see minimum wage raised to $15 an hour. there have been recent
successes in other cities. san francisco, new york, and los angeles all raised minimum wage recently. that's giving people in massachusetts hope that it will happen here as well. the proposal would raise wages for fast food workers, retail employees and home care workers. so they will start with a rally steps. then they will take it to committee debate at 1:00 inside of the statehouse. they will march on mcdonald's from the statehouse steps to mcdonald's at 2:30 this afternoon. so a very busy date of spirited debate ahead on beacon hill. institution susie steimle, wbz this morning. >> thank you very much for the update this morning. this morning, thousands of people in massachusetts are now wondering what's next following ever. dell is buying hopkinton-based emc. the deal is worth $67 billion
