6:15 am
november 6. we had the beautiful sunrise. we have gorgeous shots of castle island. power boats, sail boats, just gorgeous watching that full harvest moon up there. check out this one. just coming in right over the horizon. speaking of the horizon, here's how it looks over the city. 56 degrees with a wind out of the south-southwest at 6 miles per hour. we'll keep a southerly wind going most of the day today. dew points down lower 50's. pretty manageable. it will stay that way today. very comfortable day coming our it stays that way on monday. that sets us up for a chance of showers coming into the forecast. today it's mostly sunny and mild. 72 to 78 degrees. tonight, clouds come in. we won't be able to see that full moon quite as brilliantly as last night. there will be showers overnight. i think primarily, though, northwest of the city. more to the northwest part of the state. so where's this rain coming from? well, it's all out here to the west. you'll see a variety of frontal
6:16 am
humidity coming up. as this system comes up, it has more moisture to work with. you're seeing downpours around detroit, memphis. all that line is pushing in this direction. tomorrow, humidity moves in. it will take a while before we get the good chance of showers in here. there's going to be hit or miss showers tomorrow afternoon. most of us will miss out completely on that. one or two of us may get a downpour, perhaps a rumble of thunder. keep that in the back of your mind. if it starts to look threatening, m move inside. we see a better chance of rain tomorrow night and especially the overnight hours into monday morning. that's the best chance for seeing rain, 1/2 to an inch of rain. tomorrow, mostly cloudy skies. maybe a few breaks early, but there will be pop-up showers. then as we head to the afternoon, there's going to be pop-up showers developing just about anywhere. that's why i say tomorrow for the patriots game, they may have some scattered showers there.
6:17 am
you. you probably won't be using it. we head to tomorrow night. the rain pushes in. monday morning is looking wet. monday throughout the day, we still get the chance of scattered showers and some downpours taking place as well. so that's the good news about this forecast is, we have some rain to talk about. all right. let's talk about when the rain moves out, because today no rain in here at all. 76 degrees. tomorrow, here's where the showers move in, especially tomorrow night into monday. if you're wondering how much rain, computer models are all over the place, but it gives you an idea. it's generally turning toward about 1/2 inch to an inch of rain out of the whole thing. after that's over with, we go back into dry weather. love this weather with sunshine, low humidity. that's what you're going to see on wednesday and thursday in the forecast. but we do need that rain desperately. that's why we're really looking forward to seeing sunday night and monday. hopefully you get some nice rain at your house. it would be a welcome side. >> it would. some of the other stories we're following right now? todd: suspects open fire on

6:22 am
it's so necessary. reporter: what do you want people to see when they look at these photos? >> i want them to see that just because you're homeless, you're not hopeless reporter: that fundraiser is tonight at lynn arts. you can buy tickets for $25. all the money raised goes towards the $500,000 needed to open that day center. emily riemer, wcvb, newscenter 5. antoinette: prices at the pump could be on the rise. todd: the trouble in a different state that could affect us here. an the record he now holds and how long he waited to claim his title. antoinette: some parents may be familiar with this one. a child throwing a tantrum! coming up in your health this morning, what you can do during those frustrating fits. todd: and as we take a live look, you can see people up early. antoinette: paddleboarding. todd: mike says this is going to be the best day of the weekend. enjoy it. 50 degrees.

6:33 am
let's see what happens to her. clinton's camp is calling the remark out of bounds and saying trump has a pattern of inciting people to violence. antoinette: police are investigating a violent assault in easton. a woman claims she was walking her dog early thursday when she was kicked from behind and then knocked unconscious. police say based on the woman's account, there is some concern that she may have been a victim of a sexual assault. todd: community support in an everett neighborhood after an act of vandalism. an american flag antoinette: it happened at a convenience store. security cameras capturing images of those suspects. newscenter 5's mary saladna has the latest on the investigation. >> a lot of people died for that american flag reporter: this store owner is disgusted by the lack of respect and the very real risk. she just reopened her corner market two weeks ago after a destructive fire last year. when she saw fire trucks pull up thursday right around 11:30, she feared the worst. >> the first fire, the awning
6:34 am
and you saw those sparks as my awning was back there again. it could have set my awning on fire again. reporter: what really happened, three young men torched the american flag that used to hang on this utility pole. video shows when the man set the flag on fire. seconds later, pieces of the burning cloth can be seen raining down. from another camera, video of the trio fleeing the scene. looking at the bottom of your screen. at one point, one of the men looks directly at the camera before he runs away. >> it's awful that they would target a flag. you can't do that. it's not right reporter: neighbors are outraged by the vandals. burning an american flag is considered free speech and is protected by the first amendment. but burning someone else's flag is not equal. -- legal. the culprits could face destruction of property, even arson charges. by late evening, neighbors were righting the wrong. >> this is not a neighborhood you're going to mess around with. we're going to replace it. put it back up there where it
6:35 am
for tips. in everett, i'm mary saladna, wcvb newscenter 5. todd: for the second week in a row, a worcester football player took a stand by taking a knee during the national anthem. this time, three other teammates joined doherty high school junior michael oppong in his silent protest. last week, oppong explained he was protesting injustice and inequality. he said he was inspired by colin kaepernick, who refused to stand for the anthem. antoinette: rescue crews hard at work on cape cod. 20ph stranding themselves in wellfleet harbor. a team from the international fund for animal welfare is now keeping watch. that team has been trying to lead the atlantic white-sided dolphins back into deeper waters. there have been 17 stranded dolphins just over the past two days. rescuers say there were so many dolphins, they asked people watching from the beach to come and help out. >> when they are in a difficult-to-navigate area like
6:36 am
know, if the tide starts going out and they're getting stuck, they all stay together as a group. antoinette: this is pretty interesting. the team says they use acoustics to get the dolphins to swim out of the harbor, a pinging sound the animals find annoying. todd: a two-day rally for the legalization of marijuana will go on in boston. a judge granted an order forcing the city to approve the permit. "the globe" is reporting tens of thousands of people are expected to attend the weekend rally on st as you know, voters will decide in november if the recreational use of marijuana should be legal. antoinette: your economy now. national grid customers could be paying more for natural gas this winter, the company asking the department of public utilities for permission to raise prices. if approved, a typical residential natural gas customer could see a roughly $14 increase in monthly bills beginning in november. todd: trouble with a pipeline in alabama may drive our gas prices
6:37 am
gasoline from houston all the way to the northeast, developed a leak this week. part of the pipeline has been shut down for repairs which could raise the price of the pump by as much as 20 cents a gallon. the price spike should be short-lived. the pipeline should be repaired within a week. it was the gift of a lifetime, but how the university of new hampshire is spending that gift is raising some eyebrows. antoinette: newscenter 5's ben simmoneau with the campus controversy century, robert worked at the university of new hampshire library. quietly, the frugal man amassed a $4 million fortune, which he gave entirely to u.n.h. >> he did leave a small portion to the library. beyond that, it was unrestricted reporter: the university says 2.5 million will go to a larger student career center and one million toward a giant video board at the newly renovated
6:38 am
pleased with it reporter: some are crying foul over that million dollar scoreboard, especially because the university is asking the state for millions. >> that money could go towards lowering the cost of education or their capital drive for new buildings. >> sometimes i think the university system loses perspective of how much a million dollars is to most of us out there and how far that can go on other things reporter: u.n.h. is standing firm, issuing a statement saying, in p q facility like wildcat stadium is transformative to help recruit the best students. the university has historically invested very little in athletics. it says even the brand-new wi wildcat stadium is modest when you look at athletic complexes at most other state universities across the country. i'm ben simmoneau, wcvb, newscenter 5. antoinette: a new computer app
6:39 am
memories. congressman joe kennedy has just unveiled the app in easton. he demonstrated how it works by recording an interview with 92-year-old navy veteran arnold marcus. he survived two kamikaze attacks on his ship during world war ii. >> the idea is to be able to spread the word of it and enable people to gain access to it. to try to make sure these stories aren't lost to time. antoinette: until now, veterans who wanted to archive their stories had to make a physical recording and then mail it to washington, d.c. the veterans history project app makes it possible to upload the interviews over the internet with just a few clicks, and it is also free. todd: as a history buff, i love the fact they are preserving as many memories, as many stories as possible. antoinette: especially for our younger generation to know what
6:40 am
antoinette: some determined veterans are a cross-country mission. todd: the awareness they're hoping to bring veterans that are facing. we've all seen it. a temper tantrum. antoinette: clouds are worsening across the state, but -- the drought may be worsening across the state but not necessarily

todd: 6:43. to your held now. helping children deal with anger and frustration. just about every child has had a tantrum, and guy is having one right now. doctors say it's important to remember tantrums can happen when children don't know how to express their feelings. they feel little control and experiencing changes at home or school. parents can help by letting young children make small decisions like what color shirt to wear. doctors added it's important to be patient. antoinette: i'm already getting nervous looking at that video, todd. a new study finds what observers have been saying all along. pokemon go players may be putting themselves and others at risk.
6:44 am
university analyzed 4,000 tweets referencing the game during a 10-day period. 33% of these tweets indicated that a driver, passenger, or a walker was involved with a car while being distracted by the game. researchers then looked at news reports over this same 10-day period, and they found 14 car crashes attributed to the pokemon game. todd: as the drought worsens across the state, one expert says the cape is doing just fine. water district tells the "cape cod times" that the area's water supply is in good shape. he adds that water conditions, including rainfall and well depth, are normal for the summer. but state officials disagree and have put the cape and islands on a watch. antoinette: that drought. todd: we're getting some rain. it helps a little bit. mike: a little bit, but we need
6:45 am
antoinette: a supersoaker. mike: let me show you where the drought is showing up and where we're seeing the driest conditions. the area that we're most concerned with is in the eastern part of the state. look how this area has expanded over the last week. it's in southern new hampshire, to the berkshires, down to the cape cod canal. but boston and worcester running between nine and ten inches dry for the year so far. we can use every drop of moisture. we have a little more coming. so far for this month, just a few sprinkles here or there. so f halfway through it, is 1 1/4 inches below where we're supposed to be this time of year. looking over the city right now, no rain today. 56 degrees. dew point at 52. very comfortable day with a south breeze at 6 miles per hour. it's going to stay in that range most of the day today. if you're going to be doing part of the harbor to bay ride, you'll see a lot of riders. boston to p-town. they're hoping to raise a half million dollars.
6:46 am
mostly sunny skies emceed by our own randy price. the blues festival is taking part at liberty park in woburn. pleasant conditions and temperatures in the mid 70's. a couple of great events. there are so many events going on this time of year. this is when the weather is spectacular. we usually have dry conditions and we're having that today. tomorrow is when the rain comes into the forecast. cooler by the waterline. as you head inland, temperatures south shore, mid 70's. cape, making this a long weekend, ah, temperatures into the 70's right now. if you are making a long weekend, i do want to point this out. sunday, the clouds come in. looks like we have a chance of seeing thunderstorms sunday night into monday. that will be the theme across the entire area. let's talk about that. overnight tonight with cloud cover moving in, temperatures won't be as cool as what they were this morning. and this is the system that's going to give you the chance for rain. you'll see showers, thunderstorms with it.
6:47 am
