8:15 am
one. very powerful storm. of course, the more powerful, the eye tends to be more visible. that's exactly what we're seeing this morning. where is this going? this is what we call the spaghetti plot. this is all our computer models. we put them together. you can see there's a lot of consensus where they think it's going to go. it's called a spaghetti plot because they look like noodles and go all over the place. there's consistency through here. after that point, still keeping it well offshore. after that, now it starts to go all over the place a little bit. remember, we're talking a long way down the road, next weekend. the farther out you are on computer models, the less reliable. this is one model we watch carefully. this is the u.s. model known as the g.f.s. this is friday morning. we're talking about the entire week before it's sitting here in the southeastern part of the united states. this one has been very consistent in wanting to bring it across our area and move it on through quickly.
8:16 am
if it does. and there's not any agreement between all these computer models. national hurricane center said let's take a few days, keep a close eye on it. haiti is going to be a big problem here. we've got a mountain range right here. we have all this water coming in. i think you'll be hearing about major flooding. this is tuesday morning at 2:00 a.m. that's where we're seeing it cutting its way through here. don't focus on the center. there's the possibility of it. once it goes beyond that, it ar friday of next week, we're talking about it off the coast of florida. so a lot of things will be happening. stay tuned. we'll be talking a lot about that for this week. here's what's happening out there right now. a lot of gray skies and really it's a circulation pattern in the upper atmosphere. big upper-level low to our west and that keeps this circulation happening here. every once in a while, little disturbances come through like yesterday and we get nice beneficial rains out of it. in the meantime, there's a lot of moisture in the air. that's why you're seeing
8:17 am
and worcester airport. down to 1/4 mile visibility right now. so be cautious about that. here's the view from our city cam. gray day. 54 degrees. dew point 53 degrees. they're almost matching each other. that's a good sign you'll be getting some fog into the forecast. as you're stepping outside this morning, not very warm. we'll call it 60. i'm being optimistic. it may be stuck in the upper 50's for highs today. clouds out there. a little patchy drizzle off and on through much of the not far behind it. on monday we have showers back in the forecast. we start with gray skies, a little drizzle. during the afternoon, it looks like a better opportunity for seeing showers to develop across the region. after that one moves through, we start to slowly, ever so slowly, clear things out. tuesday's partly cloudy. wednesday and thursday is sunshine, plenty of sunshine even into friday. perhaps another chance of scattered showers next saturday. but that still is not even associated with matthew. we have to wait for a little bit
8:18 am
