6:15 am
you look at the satellite picture and go where is it? this is a closer view of it. can you figure out where the center is? probably not. the actual center is over here and you're seeing a lot of activity way off to the east of it. so what's going to be happening is fiona, winds at 45 miles per hour, probably maintain a tropical storm status by the next 48 hours. then looks like it will wind down and become a tropical depression. much-needed rain for ber thursday with the winds. a couple other things we're watching. not only do you have fiona going on, but this disturbed area right here. doesn't have a name yet because the winds aren't strong enough yet. we put computer models in and say which way is it going to go. various computer models hint it's heading towards puerto rico and maybe towards florida. you're talking about seven days

on. there is a lot of storm activity going on the coast of africa. these come out in the atlantic, blow up into hurricanes that come across the atlantic. this is our breeding ground. this is an interesting one we're keeping a close eye on. i'm going to get weather geeky here. i want to show you computer models that go in the distance. remember that disturbing area right here? computer models track it this way. as more bands go in, this indicates a we're talking about august 30, a week from tuesday. if you look at either of those, the u.s. model or the european model, they start to indicate a major hurricane off the coast. keep a close eye on that. this is a week from tuesday. this is certainly going to change between now and then. it's interesting to see a lot of activity going on in the coast of africa that eventually may mean a hurricane for the east coast.
6:17 am
and thunderstorms into the forecast. we'll keep an eye on that today. stepping outside, 50s and 60s. before the day is over, most temperatures will climb to the 80s. if you're at the coast, temperatures in the 70s. as far as the rain is concerned for tonight, the timeline. we head for 9:00 tonight. see where the showers and thunderstorms are. this marches its way across the state. may get extra juice to it about that would be the best opportunity for seeing rain out of this. tomorrow morning's compute could be on the slow side because of the water. in terms of total rainfall, quarter to a half inch. you know what happens, you get an isolated downpour, easily over an inch of rain. hopefully, you'll get that at your place but not too fast and furious. you could have strong winds and a lot of lightning going on. you may be awakened by thunderstorms in the middle of the night.

6:41 am
flonase controls 6. and six is greater than one. with flonase, more complete relief means enjoyment of every beautiful moment. flonase, six is greater than one, changes everything. ? fios is not cable. we're wired differently. so we wired the wagner's house with 100 meg internet. which means that in the time it takes mr. wagner to pour a 20 oz. cup of coffee, tommy can download 30 songs, and jan can upload 120 photos.

6:44 am
motion that's so small or so subtle that you or i wouldn't notice it. mike: everything has vibration, whether it's the grass in the background, this sign or even this building. here at m.i.t., they're studying those tiny vibrations and by doing that, they're trying to bring the real world into the virtual world. here's how it works. as abe pounds his fist on the table, look carefully and you might be able to see the wire figure vibrate. just a little. >> what does that motion tell you about the object itself? mike: he takes just a few seconds of video, capturing that motion. loads it into his interactive dynamic video program, and those algorithms show us how the figure behaves. if you grab an elbow or push or prod it in a variety of ways. >> because different objects will prefer to vibrate at different frequencies and in different shapes.
6:45 am
information, then it tells you a lot about how the object would respond to new forces. mike: what are the possibilities? better interaction with gaming. better engineering of bridges and building and hollywood is already taking notice. the system could create more life-like special effects for a lot less money. abe's youtube video of the process got hundreds of thousands of views in just three weeks. >> since then, i've gotten a lot of emails. i haven't actually been through all of them, but people seem to be interested, which is exciting. you remember, oh, yeah, this is why i spent all of that time, because this is cool. mike: abe and his two other team members, along with m.i.t., already have six patents on their work. and what they are doing in the research lab some day may show up on your smart phone or on the big screen. antoinette: more people walking around for pokemon go. mike: if you ran into coming, it would react. it's amazing what he's doing.
