as we work our way through a sunday morning. a couple of new warnings. >> yes, western massachusetts. this is the first area to get into the act. this activity will propagate eastward. call it by 8:30, 9:30 or so into the worcester hills, worcester itself, and then into the boston metro area later this morning. there are your two warnings right now. again, western massachusetts until, let's see. we have a west, including berkshire county, this one here is in effect until 8:30. great barrington, greenfield as well, and getting into orange until 9:00 this morning. let me show you the latest radar loop here. lots of lightning with these storms, especially the core of this area as it continues moving off to the east. we'll show you -- i'll set these
you can see they're just about to move into great barrington now, also into the connecticut valley on the northern edge of this. let's track these. this is a nice little line of storms. we'll watch it as it continues moving to the east, again, at about -- let's call it 35 miles per hour. so let's see if i can get that out there. there we go. shellburn, westfield and chicopee within the next hour. the closer you are to the beginning, thene as you move toward the reservoir and in western worcester county, that will be closer to the top of the 9:00 hour. in boston, it's plain old soupy outside. clouds abound. some patchy fog. 75 degrees. humidity still very high with that south-southwest wind, which has been pretty busy out there. a little bumpy on the camera lens as the winds are gusting at times past 20 miles per hour. 70 to 75 degrees on average for temperatures right now.
track them toward the 9:30 hour, again, moving into the worcester area and then heading toward the boston area before noon it looks like, and some of these could be rather potent. north shore down through boston and even along the 95 corridor toward providence as well. we may get a few more of these storms developing along the south coast and heading toward the cape and the islands early this afternoon as well. behind these, though, and you will see this by dinnertime tonight, clearing skies, and comfortable air in behind this cold front. so it's turning less humid behind these storms big time. huge difference in the air mass. high pressure in store for tomorrow morning means a cool start at the bus stops for the kiddoes. and then another line of showers and storms enters on wednesday. that's the way i'm seeing it right now. best bet, and i'm actually thinking about expanding this a little bit farther west, gusty winds, lightning, localized downpours.
again, watch out in western mass as well. biggest threats will be the heavy rain, lightning and strong winds as well. high temperatures today up near 80 degrees. again, big changes in store heading into the afternoon hours, though, with much drier air working in. so a bumpy ride to get that more comfortable air in here. midday storms around the boston area. probably midmorning toward late morning for the worcester area. and then it's back to sunshine for monday and tuesday. more storms on wednesday and struggle to near 70 degrees for high temperatures on thursday and friday. guys? >> whoo, cooling down. all right, a.j. thank you. it's 8:17. checking some of the other stories happening right now -- >> spraying for the zika virus is back underway and the hope is down in miami that a travel advisory linked to the zika virus could be over soon. the cdc could call off the warning for pregnant women if there are no new local cases found by september 19th. there is a new round of spraying

his two-run homer in the second put the jays up 2-0. more offense after an aaron hill error. joey bats to center and the jays up 3-0. sox come back. what can you say about dustin pedroia? has to be his best season since 2011. solo shot to left. now 3-1. and if this ball from jbj is 10 feet deeper. joey bats becomes joey fields. hanley scores on the sac fly and it's now 3-2. to the ninth for last fireball roberto osuna. just one game ahead of the jays in the east. >> a town in vermont is looking for some star power for their annual baconfest. >> organizers in brattleboro, vermont, are hoping kevin bacon will accept their invite.
