6:14 am
thunderstorms popping up here. that risk across new england, and you can see what it looks like out there now. just a couple of clouds. but man, is it warm. 73 degrees and so sticky. that dewpoint is in the oppressive ranger at 70 degrees, and look at this, more comfortable air am that is moving in behind the front. that will be here this weekend. so once this front crosses the area, the drier air starts to filter in tonight but sticky out ahead of it, and we're seeing the clouds and the central and northern new england so we're missing out on the widespread rain this morning, but the tail end of these showers moving through new hampshire in the next few hours, and northern most massachusetts, and we did have a couple of raindrops on the cape. you can see not a lot happening on the radar. but with this soupy air mass, the showers could pop up late morning into the afternoon. so that's why i say have an umbrella with you. 70s now. 80s this afternoon, between noon and 4:00 the best chance in the boston area, here's the
6:15 am
ask the showers moving in the next couple of hours. by lunchtime notice the scattered nature. showers around boston. a good idea to have that umbrella with you. right through 3:00 this afternoon. and then notice after 3:00 p.m. how the focus shifts into southeastern massachusetts, so the south coast, cape, islands, through 6:00, that's the best bet of a shower or a thunderstorm, and then that's it, and we're clearing things out, so if you are planning to head to gillette, for the kenny chy shower passing on through or a thunderstorm, and then we're drying out and turning much less humid, as well. so we're in great shape, just want to let you know in the tropics we're monitoring a couple of features. this wave looks like it will bring heavy rain towards florida. it may or may not strengthen into something. the weekend looks great. cooler at the beaches, so on the cape it's only near 70 -- 80 degrees on saturday and

volume picks up approaching the lever connector. trains and buses doing ok. randy: in your health for this friday morning a life-saving device is now the center of a growing controversy all across the country. the price of a pair of epi-pens has skyrocketed to about $600, and the father in grafton is pushing to change that. he's fighting back. one year ago an epi-pen saved the life of two-year-old cece when she went into anaphylactic shock. learn of this price hike and a boost in the salary for the ceo of the company. the ceo blames the hike on a failing health care system. the company announced it would expand a low income assistance program with all the backlash and will be issuing a savings coupon but not budge on the price, and that has cece's father outraged. >> it was disgusting to hear her

6:19 am
dollar store but do the math. target and staples might be cheaper this time of year. and err no mistake, ignoring price drops. most stores will give you them cheaper if you find them cheaper later, and buying too much, too soon. you have the list but don't assume that they need everything on the first day. next week we are kicking off a big push to help you go back into the groove. saving money and time, and shortcuts that can keephe whole family healthy. back to school starts on monday on the eyeopener. randy: there is an urgent security update if you have an iphone. spyware can take advantage of weaknesses in the operating system. apple says it did fix the vulnerability as soon as the company learned about it, but they say that you need to update it as soon as possible. fix the security flaw, which can give hackers complete access to your iphone. one police officer's good deeds.

6:26 am
easily hailed from your smart-phone. massachusetts just signed into law provisions that will help level the playing field by imposing new regulations on these ride-hailing services. establishing requirements for driver background checks and inspections and insurance are smart, and even endorsed by these services. the new law also clears the way for uber and lyft to make pickups at logan pending approval from mass port who hopefully won't impede the progress. included in the legislation is a 20-cent p nickel which will go towards the fund earmarked for job training and innovation for taxi and delivery companies. while the amount is small it's troubling and a matter of principal. the state is requiring companies to pay to help their competitors become innovative. money that will be coming out of user's pockets. frankly that's an expense and an operating practice that the taxi industry should have adopted years ago. state regulations to protect consumer safety is solid public
6:27 am
