6:16 am
because this is dragging up all this moisture around us, we have a chance for enhancement to that rain, primarily, though, over the southeastern part of the state as we head toward tomorrow afternoon. it depends on the tracking of that front. but this morning we're starting out with basically clear skies. there is patchy fog. here are the areas where we're seeing the thickest fog. visibility down to 1/4 mile. you get outside that fog or look straight out, crystal clear skies this morning and a hint of sunshine. sunrise this morning is not until we get to 6:49. but we still 52 degrees right now in boston with a southerly breeze at 7 miles per hour. temperatures are not as cold as they've been the last couple of nights. we've seen lows this morning into the 40's and 50's, but the last couple of days, we've seen it into the 30's. today we start with that sunshine this morning. we go to some clouds this afternoon. it's a thin overcast. i think you'll enjoy today. 66 to 70. then tonight we start putting some showers into the forecast. a little patchy fog again. notice the temperatures. they don't get that cold as we head to the overnight hours.
6:17 am
8:30 in the morning, there's that front coming in. there are the scattered showers. remember, this moisture is sitting out there as well. so as this system comes in, this is 8:00 as we talk about tonight and then as we head toward tomorrow morning, see what happens? that plume of moisture, the main storm is way down here, but a little plume of moisture working its way up, working with this front. you see where it's focusing. right down toward the cape and the southeastern part of the state. to the north and west, not going to see anything out of this whole deal. then it pushes through. by monday we are talking about sunshine moving in. and look how dry we are. over 10 1/2 inches in boston. so today fading sunshine, but not a bad day. temperatures into the upper 60's. inland will see temperatures into the 70's. then we get that chance of showers. think of it as two parts, one band of showers tonight. tomorrow we watch for moisture coming up. this is the map at 8:00 tomorrow morning. it's focusing southeastern part of the state. it might get to boston and that's about it. north and west, you're probably not going to see much. this will sit down here most of
6:18 am
eventually the sunshine comes back in here. that's why we have sunshine showing up in your forecast on monday. many of you have that as a holiday. it will be a chilly start but rebounding nicely. we have plenty of sunshine for tuesday, wednesday. thursday another cold front comes through and gives us a chance of some showers. not a lot of rain, but a chance of some showers. the air behind that will get even cooler. next week, friday, we'll see temperatures barely getting to the 60-degree mark. this is fall, the weather we sunshine during the afternoon. not so much sunshine today and certainly tomorrow some welcomed rain. doug and shayna? shayna: thank you. other stories we're following right now on the eye, the u.s. is accusing russia of trying to interfere with the presidential election. doug: two intelligence agencies releasing a joint statement yesterday officially blaming russia for recent email hacks. those breaches targeted political groups including the democratic national convention. shayna: braintree police chief
