have. even thin spots in the clouds, but noon spot showers around. hermine remain to the south through the evening commute even moving a little bit away from us here. at 5 p.m., we have a couple of scattered showers. a couple of breaks in the cloud cover and that does mean that you are potentially facing wet roads as you head home from work and likewise, as you head into work tomorrow morning. future cast. hermine is still out there to the south. we still have winds coming into the shoreline here which is also going to pushhe water into the shoreline creating some the bigger waves and concerns about beach erosion. at the same time, just got the potential for hit or miss showers through your wednesday. breezy and the winds weaker again as we hit tomorrow. there will be weaker than they are today. noontime a little bit of rain around for the evening commute. a little rain around. and hermine is starting to move off toward the north and east which means it is getting a little closer tomorrow and the good news is, at that point, we will have about

>> shiri: she doesn't know when the party is over and when to take off and get out. she is lingering for the next couple of days. stronger rain and wind gusts and impacts will be minimal. a lot of rain will be light. any damaging gust also be very isolated today because winds are weaker than they were yesterday. the biggest concern will stay a high surf, as well as the rip currents out there. i was looking at the height of our local waves, and closer to our coastline, the wave feet. as they get offshore, bigger, 10-foot waves off the coastline and this will remain an issue today and tomorrow and possibly into thursday because you can see right here, post tropical storm hermine have winds now at 65 miles per hour. but look what little movement we see in the next two days here. she basically wobbles to and fro just to the south all the while weakening so as we get into the early wednesday
afternoon, 45 miles per hour. by thursday morning, about 40 miles per hour. and after that, there is no track. she is expected to dissipate after that. we are still probably going to see some thursday morning showers though. your futurecast and this will break down the wind gusts as well as the rain showers, and you can see 7:00 this morning, we have some wind gusts generally running between 20 and 30 miles per hour. i think getting stronger gust also be nantucket or the vineyard some thunderstorm-strength gusts, but that will be gusts at 39 miles per hour stronger. i just don't see many of those left in the forecast today. in fact by noontime, mostly cloudy skies. we still have some scattered bands of rain out there, but winds are going to be getting lighter and lighter slowly as we go through the day. some 20-mile-per-hour gusts here through the afternoon opinion occasional showers. very tough to pinpoint ahead of time where we will get those. be on alert all day and have
rain, at the same time, between showers, couple of breaks in the clouds. hopefully get to see a little bit of sunshine at least today, if not today, tomorrow. we have a very similar set-up. 7 a.m. on wednesday. winds gusting 10 to 20 miles per hour. and through the day tomorrow, you will find we get a couple more bursts of showers. more showers attached to hermine that we will be watching both days. highs today upper 70s we will do for the cape, the auto islands and the south shore. boston at 72. worcester at 73. a lot of in betweens hitting the mid-70s. 60s overnight and tomorrow is a little bit milder. probably a few more breaks in the clouds, upper 70s and lower 80s. seven-day forecast with the weekend falls view as the second -- 86 on thursday after a early morning rain. we are hot, humid and get personal sun in the afternoon. friday morning passing showers. 89 degrees clearing on out for saturday at 82. a little cooler on sunday. my pick of the weekend will be
hey, julie. >> julie: we are moving along fine. a little volume building toward the braintree split. 24 and 95 looks good. a live look at the expressway. we are already seeing that volume stack up and not even 6:00 yet. live drive times, 18 minutes on rule 3 from 228 to the split. 17 minutes on 24. 15 minutes on the expressway from the braintree split to columbia road. back to you. this morning, the governor is expected to make a big announcement about offshore massachusetts. the governor will be joined by leaders of the massachusetts clean energy center in new bedford. no word yet on what the announcement would be, but last month governor baker signed a landmark energy bill investigate the stage for 100 turbines in federal waters off the coast of martha's vineyard. with labor day in the rear view mirror the race for the white house will particular into high gear. hillary clinton will head to south florida for a rally and donald trump heads to virginia. it comes after both candidates
daniel miller joins us with the highlights. >> daniel: gene, good morning. hillary clinton interrupted her stump speech by coughing. the presidential candidate joked that donald trump was to blame but the trump campaign had different reason for her coughing spell. instead of the substance of her speech, what some may take away from hillary clinton's labor day rally was the catch in her throat. [coughing] >> reporter: the candidate taking the break in stride. >> everything time i think about trump i get allergic [coughing] >> reporter: the trump campaign wasting no time responding. campaign manager kellyann conway tweeting must be allergic to media. finally spent a minute with them. >> hi, guys. welcome to our big plane. it is so exciting. >> reporter: the clinton camp bringing the traveling media on board. >> i have just been waiting for this moment. >> daniel: not to be outdone, donald trump invited a small
trump force one. >> many of the attorneys general turned that case down. >> reporter: the planes within sight of one another at the same ohio airport, the same sign the fall election season has begun, but for clinton, fall also means fits like these. >> attack americans institutions so -- [coughing] -- interruptions on seasonal allergies. >> are you concerned of conspiracy theories about your heart. >> i am not concerned about the conspiracy theories. there are so many have lost track of them. >> her coughing spell went on 20 minutes during her speech in ohio. with two months until election day, the candidate will be hitting the campaign trail hard, and, of course, fox25 will have complete coverage here on air andline at fox25boston.com. in the newsroom, i am daniel miller, fox25 news. the trump campaign is getting criticized for tweets with wrong information about new polls. this is one of the tweets. you see it shows trump 46% and
the web site 538. but 538 does not do polls. the numbers appear to be a poll of likely voters in ohio which was done by reuter's and the same poll show hillary clinton as the favorite to win the election in november. the trump campaign removed the tweet and replaced it with another one giving credit to reter's. bill cosby is headed back to court fighting to block key evidence in the felony assault trial. that e pages of testimony that he gave in the accuser's lawsuit. the 79-year-old comedian is charged with drugging and assaulting a woman that he met. a judge could set a trial date in philadelphia. a multimillion dollar beach home goes up in flames. how hermine helped fuel the fire at this well-known rhode island mansion. and we could get answers when boston police will start
being made in court about what happens next. and we track traffic and weather together every ten minutes. a 13-minute ride from cloverleaf to the leverett connector. shiri? >> shiri: because of hermine, windy showers in the forecast for the next two days, and by the end of the week a tr what makes a lipton meal? first you start with this. then add this. and this face. wait, we can do better. yeah... that's the one. and fresh brewed lipton iced tea. ste of lipton iced tea. in our house, imagination runs wild. but at my table, i keep the food real. like country crock's recipe made with real simple ingredients. and no artificial flavors or preservatives. real country fresh taste from real ingredients.
