scattered frost tonight through tomorrow morning. i think as we get toward monday morning, we may push that line closer to the city. not into the city. most of us will escape frost. we might see scattered frost as close as worcester county. high temperatures will look like this, into the upper 60's. you look out to worcester, 63 degrees for a high temperature for today. notice what i'm talking about. on monday morning, low temperatures down in the lower 40's. that means a few spotty areas could drop into the 30's pretty ke generally into the mid 60's. upper 60's, and some places getting close to 70. new bedford should check in at 70 degrees and most of the cape will enjoy temperatures into the mid 60's. overnight, a few spots dropping off into the 30's. if you haven't found your jacket for this time of year, you may need it. last couple of days you haven't needed it. high pressure in control means lots of cool air moving in. one other thing we're watching. out west, a chance of scattered showers moving into the forecast. that's not going to happen until
6:48 am
sunshine, but cool sunshine at that. then we talk about on tuesday with that cold front coming in from the west, giving us a chance of seeing some scattered showers here. the threat may linger a little bit into wednesday. right now it does not look like it will get cold behind this cold front. temperatures may hold steady. we'll call it around 70, 72 degrees with sunshine. we'll keep a close eye on that as cool air could get working in. meantime, cool weekend, plenty of sunshine. ah, and it feels like fall out there. doug and shayna? shayna: it sure from 80's today to the 60's today. doug: the beauty of new england. shayna: time now is 6:48. a look at some of the top stories happening right now. doug: a funeral has been set for the oklahoma man shot and killed. funeral services for terence crutcher will be held this afternoon. a private wake is planned. he was killed last week by a tulsa officer. that officer, betty shelby, she faces a manslaughter charge in the killing of crutcher, who was unarmed at the time of that shooting. >> 14 students and a driver are

campaign, the first debate between hillary clinton and donald trump. saying there is a lot at stake in this first of three 90-minute face-offs is an understatement. for clinton, it's a crucial opportunity to confront a sobering statistic. polls consistently find that more than 60% of americans consider her untrustworthy. for trump, whose numbers also skew decidedly negative on that score, it's a chance to show the steady demeanor and command of the issues americans ordinarily want in a commander-in-chief. we'd like to think both will be pressed to outline specific policies to directly address the very serious challenges facing our country at home and abroad. but the track record for details and accessibility in this campaign is spotty at best. playing a crucial role in keeping the discourse inbounds are the three moderators. one, chris wallace of fox news, has already signalled that he does not feel compelled to correct the record if a candidate's response is not
