explain to me that what a hurricane is are bands playing ring around the rosy. that's exactly what is going on right now. let me show you what the winds are like and you can see the strongest winds toward nantucket. you are now saying just a little breeze. that's where the wind gust was close to 60 miles an hour. look at the reports of we talked about this, how the drought has stretched the trees out. a wind can knock a tree down and it fall on a power line. tonight it looks like the winds will be strongest between now and tonight. the gust can get above 30 miles an hour even in boston. the wave action is getting impressive offshore and we are seeing some of it lifting its
action. we don't have to worry about the coastal flooding, but it is going on a couple days. beach erosion seems like a likely outcome from the storm system. let's check out radar. lightning is trying to get up toward nantucket and martha's vineyard. if you look to the cape look at that band that came from chattum. this area is pushing its way toward the canal at this point. you get across the canal and there a the there is a little spot south of plymouth right now. as you look up toward the northern part of the south shore and into the city, look at this band that has set up from quincy and this is why i say we will get showers into boston shortly and some moving through the south shore. look what is happening in the metro northwest, not much. what will happen? we will get the spiral bands coming through and maybe letting up toward 11:00 tonight. we get another batch coming
remember, it is all kind of hanging right through here. it is to not getting out to the west very much. we are talk about a scattered shower or two. tomorrow morning at 7:00 here is where it is at. the storms are centered right around here. you can almost see the swirl going on there. this is wednesday a the 8:00 a.m. we have scattered showers down here in this area, but not much going on. there are a few scattered showers. it may actually pass over nantucket. at this point it has lost the tropical characteristics. you will get the idea that it is meandering its way through the island. rainfall? this is the disappointing part of the storm. we may get a half inch and there could be an isolated area with an inch, inch and a half in one of the isolated bands. you will get that at your house and your neighbor down the street doesn't get it. that's the nature of the storms. and we need the rain.

hours. then we head for thursday, 88 degrees. it is muggy. dew points climb up there and that sets us up for this. a cold front is coming through and it may trigger a round of thunderstorms. it looks like it will by late into the day. on saturday and sunday we are trying to get the humidity down and trying to get the temperature down and a little wave and rip tell comes through here saturday night into sunday and could give as you spot shower there. otherwise the weekend is looking dry. next week by monday low humidity, comfortable sunshine. look how unsettled the weather is. keep an eye to the sky and to the tropics. this storm system has not made its right turn that should be happening as we talk about tomorrow afternoon. jc and ben? >> ben: thank you. jc: not enough rain. if it is going to be cloudy it may as well rain. colin cap kaepernick's refusal not to stand during the national anthem getting more support tonight.
