6:45 am
like as we talk about monday moving through cuba. then after that, there's quite a bit of disparity in what the computer models are doing. we're talking a week down the road. i took a couple of our more reliable models, this is a track of the u.s. model. it says it will bring it over the top of us, probably not a full-fledged hurricane. we're talking a week and then some down the road. this is one computer model. the european model, strong a storm and keeps it several thousand miles offshore. there's a big disparity. keep it in the back of your mind. we'll keep a close eye on what's going on. right now, we're keeping an eye on nice downpours down there. this is so refreshing to see this. here's our heaviest downpour right now, leaving the taunton area through brockton headed toward weymouth. just about on 128.
