8:15 am
it's going to many could up for sunday and monday. that is good news in our forecast, because it means we have more moisture in the air to work with, a better opportunity to get some rain out of this system. and if you're going to be doing the harbor to bay ride today, it goes from boston to p-town, it's 104 miles. emceed by our own randy price and what a terrific cause that is. they're expecting to raise about a hal also, we have a blues festival at library park in woburn from 1:00 to 8:00 to benefit veterans. temperature should be about 76 degrees, pleasant conditions. a great day to enjoy great music as well. today, sunny and mild. 72 to 78 degrees. a few spots inland may get close to 80. tonight, clouds roll in. maybe some showers. i think primarily in the west part of the state.
8:16 am
look at that. in the south central plains, it's moving this way. we have tropical moisture in place. as this cold front comes in, look at the showers and thunderstorms associated with it. there is a chance, a chance, slim chance, that we could see some scattered showers tomorrow afternoon. i really think the bulk of it is going to be tomorrow night into monday. tomorrow morning at 7:30, here's what i mean. a few hit or miss showers, cloud cover, maybe even a few breaks in the cloud cover. heads towards 4:00 in the afternoon, some showers. 8:00 at night, still a lot of cloudy skies, then as we head toward the overnight hours into the early monday morning hours, this is when we start to get our real rain coming across the area. your monday morning commute could be a bit on the slow side. patriots game tomorrow 1:00. slight risk of rain. bring the foul weather gear with you. if you leave it at home, you know what will happen. just a slight risk.
8:17 am

fargo. three plaintiffs have filed the first lawsuit against the utah bank. the employees use the fraudulent accounts to boost sales numbers. wells fargo has fired a 5,300 employees. the bank will pay $185 million in fines and refund $5 million more to customers. >> now, here's josh brogadir >> an encore performance is usually better than the first time around. but unless big papi hit a grand slam to beat the yankees with two outs in the ninth, it would have been impossible to handle hanley's heroics. the red sox will have no problem with a quality start from clay buchholz as head. last night, he starts off with an rbi single. mookie betts is going to score. 2-0 red sox after one. hanley not done. hanley not close to done.

8:21 am
for her, an unforgettable image because, like the man in that photo, joanne is homeless. >> we see things differently than you may, because, you know, we're treated differently. reporter: that perspective is what the lynn shelter association wants to share. last winter, with a $1,000 grant, the board launched off the grid, a photography program volunteer mentors taught 14 individuals about f-stops and apertures. >> we met with them weekly at the librar c mentors would look at their pictures, give them coaching. we collected about 6,000 pictures reporter: pictures of lynn, pictures of moments in their lives, pictures of how they feel about themselves. the photos are part of a fundraiser for a day center serving the homeless in lynn, a goal that will take several years to reach, but they are determined. >> these people have the same values that we do, and we need to provide what we can to help them to make the most of their
8:22 am
everybody believes in this. 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 and an american man setting a world record. the record he holds and how long he waited to claim it. antoinette: and we go live outside this morning. it is a gorgeous morning for a row on the charles river, as we take a live look from the cambridge side looking over at the city of boston this morning. nice start. 59 degrees. we're warming up today.

8:33 am
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 replaced after one there was burned. antoinette: it happened at a convenience store. security cameras capturing images of the suspects. newscenter 5's mary saladna has the latest now 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 night around 11:30, she feared the worst. >> the first fire, the awning caught on fire.
8:34 am
it caught my awning on fire again. reporter: what really happened, three young men torched the american flag that used to hang on this utility pole. store surveillance video shows the moment 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. look at the bottom of your screen. at one point, one of the men looks directly at the camera before he runs away. >> it's really awful that they ul 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 legal. the culprits could face destruction of property, even arson charges. by late evening, neighbors were righting the wrong. >> no, 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 belongs. reporter: police are still investigating, asking the public for tips. in everett, i'm mary saladna,
8:35 am
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. 20 dolphins are in danger of stranding themselves in 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 over the past two days. rescuers say there were so many dolphins, they asked people who were watching from the beach to come and help out. >> when they are in a difficult-to-navigate area like wellfleet harbor can be, you
8:36 am
they all stay together as a group. antoinette: the team says they use acoustics to get those dolphins to swim out of the harbor, a pinging sound that 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 boston common. as you know, voters will decide in november if the recreat 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 sharply higher.
8:37 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 reporter: for nearly half a century, robert worked at the 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 wildcat stadium. >> i think he would have been pleased with it
8:38 am
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 stem 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 >> u.n.h. says it's heard critic, but it's standing firm, issues a statement saying, in part, quote, a facility like wildcat stadium is transformative to help recruit the best and brightest students. the university has historically invested very little in athletics. it says even the brand-new 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 developed here in boston is helping veterans record their
8:39 am
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. connect with families members. with friends. to try to make sure these stories aren't lost to time. antoinette: until now, veterans who wanted to archive their 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. what a great way to preserve those memories and all of that history. todd: absolutely. as we know, all of those soldiers are getting older and older and we're losing them.
8:40 am
forever. antoinette: some determined veterans are a cross-country mission. todd: the awareness they're hoping to bring veterans that are facing. and we've all seen scenes like this. a young child throwing a temper tantrum. wait for it. there you go. what parents can do during those frustrating fits. antoinette: you were saving that for me. the drought is worsening across the state, but that may not be the case across the cape. mike: i'm tracking the chance of rain and possibly thunderstorms,

todd: 8:43 on this saturday children, helping them deal with anger and frustration. just about every child has had a tantrum like this guy, and he's not acting, by the way. doctors say it's important to remember tantrums can happen when children do not know how to express their feelings or they feel they have little control and they're 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
8:44 am
a new study finds what observers have been saying all along. pokemon go players may be putting themselves and others at risk. researchers at san diego state university analyzed 4,000 tweets referencing the game during a 10-day period. 33% of those tweets indicated that a driver, passenger, or a walker was involved with a car while distracted by that game. researchers then looked at news reports over this same 10-day period, and they found 14 car crashes attributed to the poem monday play. todd: as the drought worsens across the state, one expert says the cape is doing just fine. the superintendent of the dennis 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: your map is showing that area is still under a
