device and deliver lethal doses of insulin. so far, there have not been any attempts to hack the device. >> kevin: all right. let's hit our forecast first, because, well, that's where we are. sun popping out this afternoon, the clouds giving way to that sunshine. there will be some more that drift onshore tonight and first thing in the morning, you'll have clouds, particularly to the south, but there will be some to the north and west as well. any heavier clouds will be in southeastern massachusetts, and longer lasting too, but notice new england through lunchtime and into the afternoon tomorrow. you know we'll do the same thing tomorrow, but let's first stop here, talk about your lunchtime temperatures tomorrow. 60 in boston, 61 in bedford. shaping up to be a nice autumn day with the sun taking over. the temperatures will rise through the 60's most locations. here is a smattering of high temperatures, from boston to quincy, it's 61. to the west, getting in to the mid 60's in watertown, 65 degrees. up into the merrimack valley,
4:50 pm
methuen hand lowell and bill risk 66 degrees -- billerica, 66 degrees. ashland, 66 and metro west, 66, you get the idea, you get milder temperatures away from the coastline and where the sun comes out more quickly to the north and wells. thursday morning, patchy fog, a few clouds lying around but the sun takes over more quickly tomorrow an this did today and set us up for a nice looking day. we'll have that friday too. that covers your next three days without a problem. then this is matthew, zoom down and see the amazing eye of this storm and the billowing clouds around it. this is about 17 miles off the cools of cuba now, so it's steaming north at 10 miles per hour. so hour and a half from official landfall, but clearly, when it's this close, there's plenty happening in cuba right now. none of it very good in eastern cuba. out here, you're talking about haiti, which got hit very hard earlier. the dominican republic got hit hard with flooding rains.
4:51 pm
cuba. some of the rain being pick up by the san juan puerto rico radar. you don't see green here but out here, still hitting the puerto rican radar site, so it's showing us some of the rain in the dom can. can -- dominican. still waiting for the hurricane center to give island starting the 5:00 p.m. observation. they'll update the track as well but the bottom line is it's still forecast to come through the bahamas, turned toward florida and come up the coast very close to florida. notice the western flank of this westward, run to run, still captures eastern florida. brings it up through the carolinas. now, what i've been seeing so far, it looks like there will be a little bit more westward jog to the track when it comes in any minute now from the hurricane center, i would expect that center line to move west just a little bit, but still keeps the southeastern u.s. in grave danger from this storm and then pushes it off the coast. but the question from here becomes well, does it keep going up to the north or does it get kicked out of here? a couple things can happen. one is that a front kicks it out
4:52 pm
from even moving north and of course that other trend which you saw saw north of new england is the third possibility. certainty to the carolinas, but beyond there, uncertainty. that's my honest truth. i've been telling you that for the last couple days an i stand by it. i 60 degrees if buries, so enjoy that. i wanted to show you the spaghetti plots and these lines, all coming up toward the carolinas, a lot of agreement on the computer models here. others loop back around to the south. can't throw that solution out, it's certainly a possibilities when i look at how the atmosphere is setting up by the weekend. get impacts, it's late in the weekend, not the first part. the next three to four days are looking quite nice. i promise to have that track for you as soon as it comes in from the hurricane center with the latest observations on matthew. >> elizabeth: kevin, thank you. some businesses in boston employees lunch could come from closer than ever before. just outside their office.
