8:15 am
is interacting with that frontal boundary. unfortunately all this is is lift to go the north and east. you see all these downpours over dallas and houston. in fact, here's the projected rain totals. they've already seen anywhere from 3-7 inches in most locations, although in areas even saw in the last 24 hours over 13 inches of rain. now you add on top of that 4-8 inches and you've got big problems for the areas down there. in terms of rainfall, i want to compare this to our rain. since september 1, we've only picked up 4.5 inches of rain. and in a suburb of dallas, picking up over 13 inches of rain in the past 24 hours. that's about three times the amount we've seen in the last two months. now obviously we're looking for rain because we're under a moderate drought here closer to home with over-- we're down over 7.5 inches in boston and down over 7 inches in worcester. rain is on the way though. in fact, tomorrow morning it
8:16 am
we're dry monday and tuesday. those remnants of pa tisch i can't will interact with that frontal boundary giving us a high dose of heavy, significant rain wednesday night into thursday. right now as you see, a lot of clouds out there over boston but there are some clearing skies back to the west. you see 42 degrees currently. the winds out of the north and east at about 9. it's a chilly day for most places, and we're going to warm up really into the low 50's in boston. maybe a few mid 50's on the cape and the islands. but notice most of us staying in the upper 40's today because of that cloud cover and those winds coming off the water. the good news is temperatures are going to jump right back up for tomorrow up into the 60's. in boston, up into the upper 50's in worcester which is about a 10-15-- 10- to 15-degree temperature jump which we'll welcome in. that comes with a warm front and rain overnight into first thing tomorrow morning and then temperatures again warming in the low 60's. so the future cast for the rain looks like this.
8:17 am
by 7:00, you notice the best chances north and west of the city. southern new hampshire, worcester county. move closer to boston it starts to fizzle just a touch as it gets closer to boston but still a couple of showers by 9:00. then we're starting to clear out by lunchtime. i do think for you folks that are headed down to gillette tomorrow tore the pats' game it looks pretty good. by afternoon, the clouds really start to clear out. we will see some sunshine so tomorrow not a washout of a day. and then sunshine really returns into the forecast on monday but unfortunately it is is chilly because high pressure brings those winds around from the north. that keeps temperatures back in the low 50's not only on monday but also tuesday. and then we start to see that rain come in wednesday into thursday. frank and karen. frank: thanks a lot, danielle. time right now is 8:19. a check of some other stories we're following right now. karen: a dorchester teenager is under arrest accused in a deadly stabbing at the jackson square "t" station. police say 16-year-old romondo cepeda of dorchester confessed

wcvb.com. >> now your storm team 5 forecast with meterologist danielle vollmar. danielle: close to home the big impact today will be the temperature which is kind of cool. 52 degrees for our high in boston. we should be running around 59 degrees. but we do jump up above average for tomorrow. with that comes the chance for some showers and then back down below where we should be. starting out the day this morning, it's been kind of chilly. 25 concord still at this hour. 28 in keene. 33 right now in worcester. 42 boston. and 50 on nantucket. and for today, i think it's going to be a mostly cloudy day. temperatures only warming into the upper 40's, low 50's due to the cloud cover and also those winds coming off the water. we're watching clouds really start to spiral on in. it's all associated with a warm front and cold front that is going to bring some showers our way. in fact, here is that system.
8:40 am
you can see it. that cold front is actually stalled out bringing the rain for parts of texas which really doesn't need the rain. of course we're watching tropical storm patricia with winds of only 50 miles an hour. it's going to interact. it's already starting to do that and feed more moisture into that area that does not need the rain. we're going to watch this one very carefully because it continues to track up to the north and east. that tropical moisture is going to feed into all this area from texas to louisiana and back to the southeast and eventually we could see some rain from this, but that is not going to happen until later on, like wednesday night into thursday. so for tomorrow, we are going to see some rain chances especially in the morning hours. by afternoon though, i think we're going to see some clearing so it is not a washout. then we're dry monday and tuesday. we really do welcome in the rain. we're down over 7.5 inches in boston. down over two inches for the month of october. we are looking for some beneficial rain.
8:41 am
into first thing tomorrow. it's chilly tonight with temperatures holding in the 40's so it's a cool rain and then tomorrow we warm up into the low 60's behind the warm front. and then cooler air will work its way back in for monday and tuesday. so the timing for the rain looks like this. notice by 7:00 especially north and west of boston this is the best bet of seeing some rain in the form of maybe like a tenth of an inch to two tenths of an inch of rain max from this. so it's really shower activity. n it really becomes more hit or miss as we go across the state. boston by 9:00, you know, maybe metro west seeing a couple of showers too. this. if it makes it all way. if not, you may stay dry but still pretty cloudy up until lunchtime. then through the afternoon we start to break apart the clouds. we see more sunshine. which we will welcome in because we do have a big day tomorrow. in fact, if you're headed out good. 61 degrees at kick-or.
8:42 am
the only thing i would say is if you're going down there early in the morning to tailgate, there could be a couple of hit-or-miss showers. you may want to bring a rain jacket for that. should clear out. that cold front then swings through. so temperatures drop into the 50's and then significant rain coming potentially with the remnants of patricia wednesday night into thursday. frank? frank: thanks a lot, danielle. a look at sports now, and it's looking up for the bruins. the b's in brooklyn taking on the islanders. they got on the board first. then david pastrnak broke a tie late in the second period, and the b's would hold on to that lead. spooner gets one. krejci would add another, and the bruins beat the islanders 5-3. they'll be back at the garden tuesday night. to the court now, and a pretty good way to wrap up pre-season basketball. celtics and sixers in manchester, new hampshire. avery bradley got off to a quick start with 6 points and 4 steals in the first 10 minutes of the game. isaiah thomas was off the bench for this one as well. celtics win 81-65. it was their last pre-season game before they open the regular season against these same sixers at the garden. karen: it will be the kansas
