in the week ahead. the u.s. jobs report for october and the report for u.s. auto sales. >> now your storm team 5 forecast with meterologist danielle vollmar. danielle: this is why we're told to stay indoors during a thunderstorm. watch closely as lightning strikes this national weather service radar tower in texas. a technician with the n.w.s. was recording video of the storm when the bright bolt burst right in front of him. antoinette: too close for comfort for me. impressive. we're not talking about lightning here. antoinette: thank goodness. danielle: you know what we're talking about? antoinette: what? danielle: halloween but also an extra hour of sleep tonight. antoinette: that's exciting, but the sun sets so early. danielle: antoinette brings up a very good point. she knows when the earliest sunset is.
8:39 am
danielle: we won't forget your birthday. tomorrow's sunset is at 4:38. tonight is at 5:39. that is the big difference. but, hey, at least tonight you get an extra hour of sleep. turn the clocks back one hour. happy halloween, everybody. it will be dry and cool for your halloween. sunday. that's really especially north and west really of boston. it's a mild start to november. in fact, temperatures are going to really bump up over the next couple of days. not so much this morning though. we're already in the 20's in keene. orange, you're still chilly there. 33 worcester. 34 plymouth. 39 degrees right now in boston. but for today with some sunshine and that wind shifting from the north and west to the south, we will see high temperatures warm into the upper 40's and low to mid 50's in most of our area. it is very quiet out there on satellite and radar. but clouds are going to increase from west to east through the afternoon associated with our next system.
8:40 am
but right now high pressure is really just dominating our weather. so the future cast for today looks like this. we are dry up until lunchtime. we have a couple of clouds pushing on in by afternoon. so as you go out trick or treating tonight, it will be mostly cloudy. but those clouds act like a blanket so it's not going to get as colds as this morning or last night. in fact, here's those rain showers getting closer by overnight over the great lakes. they'll be knocking on our doorstep by tomorrow morning. so overnight lows dropping into the 30's and 40's. for trick or treating, falling into the low 50's and back into the 40's. for tomorrow temperatures will warm up nicely into upper 60's and low 50's. it's a mostly cloudy day. there will be a cup of showers around. we really do need the rain because we're down over search inches for the year in boston. down just about six inches for worcester and the area you see here in the tan is actually under a moderate drought. we are really looking for the rain.
8:41 am
let's show you this on the future cast in the search-day forecast. we're going to expand it out for you on sunday and time out these showers for you. it's not really going to affect everybody. most of you can still get through your day without a shower in sight. once we get towards 9:00 or 10:00 southern vermont getting a couple of showers. more of them moving towards new hampshire by about lunchtime or so. and they continue across the state through the afternoon hours but notice most of us start to clear out by about 5:00 we'll see more sunshine in the forecast. that continues both monday, tuesday and wednesday. in fact, this whole week really is dry as we welcome the month of november. look at the temperatures though. that's the big story. warming into the low 60's on monday. by tuesday the mid 60's. some areas may push 70 degrees. if they don't do it on tuesday, by thursday we're all around 70. antoinette? antoinette: danielle, thank you. they are a medical mystery. these seven sisters have all battled cancer, and doctors aren't sure why.
