hermine hits florida but what's going to happen to us. >> people think of meteorologists as just the mereds, and we are, who -- just the nerds, and we are, just watching the clouds. we are regular people, too, who have plans trying to plan out saturday, sunday, and monday. we have a cold front, a few downpours. many are excited to see that in neighborhoods this afternoon. of course we have hurricane hermine, which is about to make landfall. we'll focus on that in a moment. we want to focus on a few downpours with thunder and lightning popping up as they move off toward the south and east. we've seen beneficial rainfall mixed in here. especially down toward the cape and a couple of downpours likely in the evening. one right now is moving its way down newburyport. also have heavier rains on the outskirts of lexington. maybe a little rumble of thunder in the line as it moves off toward the south and east.

5:20 pm
lot of beach erosion, especially with long island to the mid-atlantic. planning out the weekend, tomorrow's nice. saturday looks nice as well. we'll see increasing cloud cover from south to north, but it is a dry day. even most of sunday could stay dry before our first rain showers start to lift up first along the cape, the islands and south coast. then they try to get inland, but i don't think they will make it to far. i'm not expecting a lot of rainfall north and west of boston. we'll lay out scenarios. the best case and this is the most likely scenario that we get some bands of rain into monday, and tuesday, the south coast, the cape and islands are most at risk to get heavier rain. but we want that rain. 20 to 40 mile-per-hour wind gusts. we'll get at least minor beach erosion out of this. the worsest case and most unlikely skin -- the worst case and most unlikely scenario
5:21 pm
outlier. sunday some showers develop and it will be gusty at the coast. a cool, gray labor day and our highest chance of seeing rainfall. we could see over an inch in southeastern massachusetts. that's the good thing. there's your accuweather seven- day. a much cooler stretch for us. david and paula, there is a chance the system could be here all next week drifting offshore. >> take a few days. eric, thanks. >> eric, thank you. we want to give you an update on breaking news in milford where there has been a deadly hit and run. this image is from surveillance video of a person killed on main street near a police station in milford. police believe this was the truck responsible. a tractor-trailer, as you can tell, blue with red fenders may be headed toward boston. again, this happened on main street in milford about an hour ago. a person there in the road was hit and killed. as soon as we get more
