6:16 am
above that and initially -- [ indiscernible ] for 2020. [ no audio ] the rest of the season as we get into september. the chance to go down quite a bit. not to say that it can't happen, but looking at the charts this morning, i don't see much of anything going in e up or not 90s. far from it this morning, it's cool out there. 43 in plymouth, new hampshire, jaffreys, 45; fitchburg, 49; sanford, maine, at the airport, 49; lawrence is 41; taunton, 40 and into the cape on the 40s. and into chatham and nantucket, the breeze from the ocean there. 42 in the vineyard this morning. see it's downright autumnal this morning. the dew points in the 40s for
6:17 am
humidity is just off to the southwest and we're going to start to feel that tomorrow. not today. a beautiful saturday is coming up as we have sunshine, some high thin stuff out there now and a few other scattered clouds. they show up during the day. upper 70s is the highest temperatures west-northwest of boston. lower 70s in the south side of the cape. east-facing beaches are warmer than the last few days and we have a high tide around mid- day. needs to be the high some of the 80s are coming away. we'll get some tomorrow. eighty to 84 degrees should do it for highs and this weather front is coming and seems to be slowing down a little bit. we should get some showers out of it in western-northwestern new england tomorrow and probably not much of anything close to boston. julia, which is now a tropical depression, some of the moisture from that might be pulled into the system as it gets into our region on monday. and so, look at the time stamp. tomorrow morning, the showers are in the northwest and they
6:18 am
they will try to redevelop during the day, but doesn't look like too much support for them. at the same time, mid-day tomorrow, we have varying amounts of clouds and sunshine in southern new england into the afternoon that would include areas over gillette stadium and it looks like there shouldn't be rain there. a couple of scattered showers to the northwest might be more pronounced into the evening hours and that is why there could be showers and thunderstorms near fenway park for the yankees game, which is at 8:00 or so on sunday night. so, we'll this frontal boundary that sets up in the air is going to get more active into monday. should be a fine day for the sox game as they take on the yankees this afternoon at 1:05. and then we have an 8:00 game tomorrow night and there could be a shower or thunderstorm. i don't think at this point there is going to be rain there but a remote risk of a quick passing shower. humid and warm, low to mid-80s at gillette stadium tomorrow afternoon. tropical now, depression julia,
6:19 am
doesn't look like much here. some of the tropical moisture might be pulled in. tropical storm carl in the atlantic and here's the eastern seaboard here. carl is watched because it might be a hurricane, according to the latest projections from the national hurricane center and we have this the next seven days, upper 70s today but south- facing coastal spots that are cooler, the south-southwest breeze not humid today and it will be humid tomorrow. a slight chance of a shower and rain on monday. light hope we get beneficial rain out of afternoon and we have nice weather the rest of next week and looks good, chris. >> all right, sounds good. thank you very much, barry. you would think by now that curious george would know better than to get himself into some messes that made him so famous. after 75 years, the place associated with the monkey,
