4:46 am
mike: it really is. this is what we talked about yesterday. that eye can kind of shift a little bit one way or the other. if it does that, you can have real devastation along the coast of florida. you can see the real spiral that's going on. as you look at this system, a category 3 storm with maximum sustained winds of 120 miles per hour. i want to make sure we're actually on to the right computer, because i believe we're looking at the wrong computer right at the moment. let's go to weather one. there we go. look at that eye right through there. about the eye being actually about 50 miles offshore. these bands, this is where you find your heaviest wind, rain and everything else going on, is only 13 miles offshore. a little jog this way or that way will be a big concern. right now the strongest winds i've been seeing have been right around the vero beach area. 74-mile-an-hour gusts. melbourne, 64-mile-an-hour gusts. i think what's going to happen with this, we'll see it sliding more toward daytona beach. it may move inland a little more
4:47 am
part of the state. here are the hurricane force winds in the area in red. i'm hugging the coast. watch what it does this afternoon. we start to push it toward daytona beach. that's why i say this could be the area where we see the most destruction out of it. then it works its way back offshore, does this big loop as it heads toward the north. of course, they're going to get wind as you look through the carolinas, but nothing like what's going on in florida. rainfall totals? you can see, 1/2 foot seems likely. the heaviest rains may be up to the carolinas where we could pick up a footf it's an interesting storm. see how it loops back around, becomes a category 1, then a tropical storm? this way try to make another approach at florida as we talk about next week. but right now all eyes are on what's happening on the coast of florida at this point. i want to point this out. you've got matthew sitting near the coast of florida. out in the ocean, we have nicole, a full-fledged hurricane. it looks like it's going to sit and spin and not do anything. we are watching this.
4:48 am
as this cold front comes in, it's trying to draw that moisture away from it. i don't know that that's going to happen. today we're dealing with sunshine. today is a beautiful day out there. a little bit of patchy fog, but overall just a gorgeous day. look for high temperatures generally to be in the mid 70's. a little cooler at the coast. tomorrow, some showers by the afternoon. the shower threat may linger into early sunday and clear away. temperatures a little cooler, into the 60's. in fact, next week i best chance for rain looks like saturday night. we need the rain. emily: we do. can we move it to monday? mike: same last week. whenever we get it, we'll take it. how's traffic? olessa: quiet. a look at the pike, no problems. brighton over to the maps we go. a little bit of construction over across the span of the zakim bridge on the southbound side. it will be gone in a couple of minutes. as you travel south of there, you're in good shape.
