6:15 am
organized system. look what happens today, it weakens and strengthens towards the weekend, but it looks like it will stay out in the atlantic and not really bother anyone. you can see the thunderstorms bringing rain but this, whether or not it strengthens, look where it's headed, towards the southeast bahamas and eventually florida, so once it gets towards florida from there it could go north or west, and could be a player in our weather. lots to watch in the tropics. skies are clear overhead, the sun is up now and it will be a warm day, and this month of august has been a hot one. temperatures running well above average, in fact right now this is the warmest august on record for the boston area, a degree above 1988, which currentlily

the temperatures in the upper 60's in town, and we have lower 70s on the cape. and 64 as you are heading out in worcester. wind is going to be busy out of the southwest. you can see that throughout the day, and that southwesterly wind is going to keep the sea breeze away but also grabbing stickier air sitting here to the south and west and feeding it in, and that humidity is pulling out ahead of a frontal boundary, this is the front that triggered the tornadoes yesterday in indiana and ohio. the storms have and as this front presses through we could see showers and thunderstorms, so today is a dry day for you, and going for a high of 88 in boston, could touch 90 in lawrence, and cooler temperatures on the south coast and the cape as that wind comes in, but throughout the day, just some passing clouds, and storms firing up across eastern new york state later, and otherwise, it should be dry heading into tonight, but kind of a tough night for sleeping if you don't have the air-conditioning. most areas stay at or above 70 degrees for lows. you wake up tomorrow, and it's
6:17 am
and as we get towards lunchtime, notice a couple of showers and thunderstorms popping up already. those will get closer into the boston acquire by 2:00 in the afternoon, and drops south. so if you have evening plans, i think that the storms are winding down on the cape. and we clear things out overnight setting us up for a nice weekend. saturday and sunday, lower humidity, with more showers and thunderstorms threatening on monday. let's get you back out to the roads right now. don't forget the sunglasses. >> no, sun glare is what you will encounter we're in decent shape, and except for the volume, those delays in place across the span of the bridge and the lever connector heading south side into boston. and over to the maps we go, we're watching one accident early this morning on route 3 south over by concord road. if you are heading out. and one lane is closed, and 93 still looks good, the volume picks up as you head south, and make your way into boston, as you just saw live, pike, only 15 minutes, 495 to 128, and volume on 24 north out of avon and also

from braintree into boston. emily: you will know if your baseball restaurant is making the grade. the city council approved a plan yesterday to issue letter grades to all of the city's restaurants based on health inspections, and the first ones come out in the next couple of weeks, here's how it works, restaurants start with 100 points, and they lose 10 for any serious violations involving food and how it is handled, significant violations that don't involve food but could still put customers at risk, in that cost them seven points and any small issues, so if you do the math here you get a final score. 94 points or higher a restaurant gets an a, 83 to 93, that earns them a b as you see there, and 80 or lower is a c. so starting in a year, restaurants will have to post their grades in the front windows or will face fines. >> in your health this morning a new study could help to save thousands of breast cancer patients from unnecessary chemotherapy. the researchers look at gene activity in tumors and they
