>> being able to see all these applications and new ideas will definitely pretty cool. frank: the "make robotics fly" event at harvard. the drone demo a part of hub week. >> i think that this shows how art, science, and technology collide. frank: harvard's business school and engineering school coming together focusing on entrepreneurship and technology. >> this particular event is about awareness and exploration and also learning about these new technologies. frank: from a gasp powered drone for industrial purposes to a delivery drone for commercial use to a drone for pure fun. >> the drone selfie. frank: the many applications of these flying machines explored here. >> you are looking at one of the world's newest technologies, drones. frank: sally french, also known as the drone girl, leading the discussion about drones today and where they're going in the future. >> at this event we're telling people the story that drones are good or inspiring the kids here to get into a field that
8:42 am
celebrating this in technology. frank: this drone demonstration will spark collaboration between engineering and business. in 2017 they'll both be housed here in allston. they hope to find the big thing in drones or just the next big thing, period. here at harvard, frank holland, wcvb, newscenter 5. >> now your storm team 5 forecast with meterologist danielle vollmar. danielle: the big story today is the temperature jump. we're on the way up. for example, in taunton starting out at 37 but warming up to 67 for a high today. that's a 30-degree jump. and then nashua warming up from 39 to 68 degrees. so we are on the way up. and that is our temperature trend. as we look over boston right now, high, thin clouds over the area but there are some bright blue skies too. we're going to see a lot of sunshine as we head towards lunchtime and thereafter. 50 degrees currently. the winds out of the south and west at 11. they have shifted to the south and west now so that's a warming wind. over the next couple days you'll notice the difference when you step outside the door.
8:43 am
climbing upper 60's in boston. upper 60's taunted on. mid 60's on the cape. nantucket seeing 63 degrees and maybe pushing even near 70 in lawrence. those winds out of the south and west at about 5-10. now for tonight, things settle down. we'll have clear skies. the winds will lighten up just a touch. overnight lows will drop into the 40's across the merrimack valley. 48 in worcester county. low 50's in boston but it's a milder night tonight. and then as we head towards tomorrow, we're going to see more sunshine. temperatures really rebound nicely into the mid 70's in boston. a few upper 70's through lawrence and nashua. and the only exception may be the cape staying in the upper 60's. the reason? those winds will be coming off the water out of the south tomorrow. now that is also going to come with a little bit of a price because we have high pressure weather. that's giving us the dry conditions. there is a storm system up to the north giving showers and
8:44 am
even snow showers earlier this morning in quebec. all of that is staying to the north. but we're watching another system down to the south. this is an area of low pressure. we're going to watch the track of this one because it looks like it will bring us some rain as early as monday night into first thing tuesday. so rain chances today obviously there is none. we're dry. as we head towards monday, it's more late monday night into early tuesday they start to go up. and then tuesday pretty much in the morning hours from that area of low pressure and then in the afternoon we could also see more rain chances developing out ahead of a cold front. so let's talk all about this in the seven-day forecast. as we talk about monday, for example, here's what's going to happen. we're going to watch most of the day is dry with sunshine. it's very mild. temperatures in the upper 70's. but watch this area of low pressure. as this gets closer to us, it looks like the south coast, the cape and the islands, southeastern mass, have a chance of seeing some rain as early as midnight and thereafter. and to start the morning commute.
8:45 am
and then we watch this cold front. it's going to bring a chance for showers through the afternoon and evening across the entire area. you know, it's really hit or miss though. not everyone is going to see the showers. we're not talking about real heavy rain or any wind threat with this. and then temperatures behind the cold front drop into the 60's wednesday and thursday. by friday and saturday, we're back into the 50's so we're going to be feeling the chill so enjoy this weekend. reed and antoinette. reid: we will. thank you, danielle. stories we're following right now. terrifying moments for residents in lake tahoe, california, where a plane crashed into a house. antoinette: the beech 35 bonanza had just taken off from the lake tahoe airport. two people were on board that small plane. their condition is unclear right now, but f.a.a. officials say no one on the ground was hurt. the f.a.a. and ntsb are investigating the crash. reid: right now, nine construction workers are recovering after part of a bridge collapsed at a construction site near los angeles. three of them in critical condition.

9:13 am
rain chances on the way up as we head towards late monday night into tuesday. we'll talk more about that in just a second but first today let's talk about the sunshine and the warmer air moving in. 68 degrees for your high in boston. mid 60's on the cape. lower 60's on nantucket. upper 60's through southern new hampshire as well as lawrence. maybe pushing near 70 degrees. as you look at satellite and radar, there are high, thin clouds out there. but that is really about it. as we go through the day, they're going to tend to clear out of here as high pressure really dominates so that will lead to more sunshine this afternoon and sunshine yet again for tomorrow. and also southwest winds. we're watching this system down to the south. this is an area of low pressure that has brought some rains to the carolinas, an area unfortunately that does not need any more rain. and this is our next chance for some rain overnight monday into first thing tuesday. then we're going to watch the cold front coming from the west. before tonight, it's a dry night in store.
9:14 am
temperatures dropping into the mid 40's to a few low 50's for overnight lows. and since we're starting out milder tomorrow, we will warm up even more. mid 70's boston. upper 70's lawrence, nashua. lower 70's through worcester. upper 60's on the cape and the islands because those winds are coming off the water for you folks there. and again the rain impact goes up as we get towards late monday night into tuesday. tuesday looks like the best chances of seeing some showers. it looks like the best chances are really coming actually from this cold front. so let me show you this on the future cast on tuesday. this is the area of low pressure down to the south that could give southeastern mass a good chance of some rain in the early morning hours. then by the afternoon, this cold front sweeping through giving everybody a chance at some hit-or-miss showers but notice temperatures still in the 70's so it is still very mild outside. we get to wednesday and big changes in the jetstream here. as it dips down to the south, it brings down cooler air from
9:15 am
canada so even though we're only in the lower 60's wednesday and thursday, as you look ahead to next weekend, temperatures fall back into the 50's for highs and overnight lows in the 30's. let's enjoy the warmer temperatures this week weekend. reed and antoinette. antoinette: time right now is 9:25. stories we're following right now. reid: no one is claiming responsibility for two explosions that targeted a turkish peace rally in ankara. rising. at least 95 people were killed, and hundreds more injured. the country's prime minister says there are "strong signs" that the two explosions were suicide bombings, suggesting kurdish rebels of isis militants are to blame. antoinette: a somber vigil at northern arizona university for students shot on campus last police say an 18-year-old freshman pulled the trigger, killing one and injuring three others. all four victims members of the delta chi fraternity. charged with first-degree murder and three counts of aggravated assault.

9:17 am
david krejci hasn't scored a goal in his last 17 games against montreal. and, oh, by the way, the bruins played again last night without zdeno chara. other than that, everything was both hunky and dory at the garden. first minute-and-a-half of the game and montreal was already on a powerplay and already on the board. a quick one there. second period, sure looks like a goal here but the ref took it away claiming that patrice bergeron interfered with the goalie. does not look that way to me. that was a big no goal because the canadiens would end up taking a 3-0 lead. a pair of goals by eller and the bruins came back with a pair of their own. matt belesky with his first as a bruin here. bergeron scores late. the bruins drop their first two games of the year. 4-2 the final last night. and it's the patriots and the cowboys later this afternoon. mike lynch with all the highlights, post-game reaction, and analysis tonight on
