governor charlie baker toured this area speaking with residents, and, again, crews will be back up here today. the cleanup will likely last a few more days. we will show you aerial video from skyfox as it blew over the scene. i am stephanie coueignoux, fox25 news. well, in boston, police are issuing an alert following a sexual assault in the south end. it happened around 1:00 yesterda street. the man approached her on a bike. he says he had a knife and forced her to walk to the park where he sexually assaulted her. the suspect has tattoos on his right arm and on the back of his hand. and -a-aa all right, well, it is a very different day than we saw yesterday, shiri, with much cooler temperatures
so temperature-wise, we are actually going to start off a little bit below average, 64 degrees is typical. we are dropping into the upper 60s. i wouldn't be surprised if we hit the upper 5s, but the first time this month in boston, ref not seen a wake-up call in the 50s in the city. suburbs a little bit of a different story. average high is 79 degrees. boston right now at 61, but we usually hit rock bottom as the sun comes up at 6 a.m. i still think we could lose 1 or 2 degrees. 7 a.m. 6 warm-up under way, 69 degrees. lower 60s at 7 a.m. and temperature-wise during the afternoon, upper 70s, lower 80s, it is going to be beautiful. high pressure will keep us nice and dry today. a little shield from anything. and over the next couple of days, implications for both temperature and humidity. what we are watching for at the coastline, we could see a light little sea breeze and that means temperatures at the beaches could knock back into the 70s.
could be a high around 80 degrees. for the cape, 70s on the map. barnstable, 77. edgartown, 76. lower 80s on the flipside from marshfield. 82 in middleborough and brockton. and 81 in attleboro this afternoon. boston at 80 degrees. a lot of suburbs, lower 80s in foxborough, natick, w woburn. a little bit cooler for cape ann. rockport 73 degrees. that might be a little bit low either way. but 80s in beverly, 81 in salisbury. 82 haverhill to andover. lower 70s. douglas at 79. fitchburg hits the lower 80s and a lot in southern new hampshire with nashua and hampton beach at 81. overnight fall back into the 50s. not quite as cool as what we have last night and what you are waking up to this morning. a couple of degrees milder and since humidity is not really
where maybe you crack the windows. you don't need to use the ac overnight because these are pretty comfortable sleeping temperatures. i don't think you need to lower things any more than that but tomorrow, could definitely have the ac back that play for the afternoon. temperatures-wise upper 80s boston, beverly. lower 90s and norwood and bedford. 91 in lawrence tomorrow. the heat is on and it stays on for the end of the week. thursday, 88 degrees with a few friday is your next shot for showers. and a little layout of what i am expecting for friday because i think some of these storms are -- rather scattered showers could come overnight and be in play when you wake up tomorrow morning and they weaken by the afternoon. these will last in the scattered fashion by lunchtime, afternoon, you see things breaking apart already and things dry over the weekend with saturday's high, 82 and sunday, 78. over to julie grauert a look
>> julie: shiri, good morning. new accident, 128 southbound near the braintree split near granite street. not a lot of volume not having a huge impact on our drive times. route 1, 93 south is fine. a look at 93 through sullivan square where speed limit ride quite a bit of space between those cars. over to your live drive times, 2 minutes from 128 to the tobin. 23 minutes on 93 south. 23 minutes on the pike eastbound from 495 eastbound from 495 to mass ave. back to you. more than 1,000 fire fighters are working to knock down the flames of the blue cut fire in california. but the efforts were not enough to save one of the most famous restaurants along route 66. the fire leveled the southern inn. and the restaurant has been in operation since the 20s. the long-time owner was heartbroken. >> makes me sick in my stomach. it is awful because i know every button in that
