5:17 am
over new york, even into parts of vermont right now. it is very slow moving. it is encountering drier air in new england right now and it is going to be a little unimpressive, if you will, as it moves toward us. alove the rain shifting to the north. a lot of it to the out. we are kind of in the middle with spot showers. by late morning, that chance is going to arrive especially out toward central massachusetts, southwestern new hampshire, even the tail end of the morning commute here at risk of seeing one or two sprinkles boston should stay dry throughout morning and during the afternoon. we get here and there speckled showers on the map. this not a washout by any means, but 5 p.m., you can see several wet roadways out there and during the evening hours 8 p.m. with all of that evening rain focused across the south shore, the cape and islands and when it turns deadyest. that's where we will get most of our rain reports coming in. by this time well out of

5:19 am
and scattered clouds. we will tend to see that cloud cover lighten up as we travel through the day tomorrow. 58 today. 54 tomorrow with partly sunny skies. a little breeze and winds gusting around 20 miles per hour. and we are going to get a period of clouds coming through with a dry cold front. i don't expect it will bring us much in the way of any sprinkle so keeping the rain chances very, very low. 57 degree your high and check out how much cooler for the weekend with lows in the 20s and 30s. your high on saturday a measly 46% 46 degrees. it will run nice and bright and the wind on top of that, wind chills in the 30s all day long. sunday not looking bad. it will be a little bit warmer. 50s make it back to town and 55 in boston. 54 in nashua. 53 in plymouth. we will average out -- mid-50s on sunday. monday as well keeping things nice and dry at 56 degrees. and 57 for tuesday. back to you, guys. all right, so enotions ran high last night. we saw everything from cheers

5:41 am
5:42 am
5:43 am
we are back at 5:43 this morning. if you are just waking up, morning victory in the presidential election. at one point hillary clinton's campaign manager said they will wait until later this morning for more votes to come in, but around 3:00 this morning, clinton called donald trump to concede and trump made his victory speech. fox25's chris flanagan live in new york city this morning. chris, this really was a wild finish to the race. there you are. >> reporter: yes, it certainly was. the swing states early on really were going his way.
5:44 am
then won ohio. and the big ones, of course, after that when he won wisconsin and pennsylvania. those two states, they hadn't voted for a republican president since the 19 80s. getting those swing states momentum through the blue wall, through the rust belt, the upper midwest carrying donald trump in the must-win states and he got them and then it looked like we might not know there was of a definitive winner late last night because clinton told her called donald trump and conceded the race handing him the victory where he was -- he will become the 45th president of the united states, gene. >> gene: trump came out and seemed to be extending a bit of on olive branch in that speech. >> reporter: yeah, he did. he really talked about and really expressed -- talked about bringing the country together and uniting and healing somewhat. you know he was criticized so much for his rhetoric
5:45 am
throughout the last 18 months characterized by opponents as divisive and also racist but he says he wants to bring the country together and he pledged -- this is what he said, he said i will be the president for all americans, and that is important to him. so donald trump, yes, trying to reach out and unite the country now. >> gene: chris flanagan live for us in new york city. chris, we will be checking bang with you throughout the morning. trump's running mate bursting with excitement. vice president mike pence called link night historic as he introduced his newly elected running mate but not without first sharing out the results of the vote made him feel. >> i am deeply grateful to the american people for placing their confidence in this team and giving us this opportunity to serve. >> gene: pence continued showing his thanks minglinging with his supporters as the crowd you made its way out of the republican candidate's headquarters.
5:46 am
the balance. the granite state has not been called for trump or clinton and too close to call for senator kelly ayotte and maggie hassan for u.s. senate. tide percentage wide with kelly ayotte a few hundred votes ahead, 1500 at this stage. we will keep a close eye on that for you throughout the rest of the morning. sara. >> sara: nrrt, gene. here in the bay state the ballot questions were hotly debated, when the cast, the only close race was the marijuana question. jessica reyes is live at south fox25 with results good morning, jess. >> reporter: the pot question was the most polarizing and we heard much about this. but in the end, voters in the bay state said yes making pot legal for recreational use. as of december 15, if you were 21 and older and you feel like going home and smoking a joint, that is okay.
5:47 am
now january 2018, they will actually be able to head out to the store and buy it. medicinal marijuana is illegal since 2008, but this is obviously taking a big step forward in that direction making it legal for everyone. the numbers here, 53% voted yes and 47% voted against question 4. supporters compared it to legalizing alcohol, but those agains walsh and governor charlie baker held that will lead to more addiction problems here in the bay state on top of the opioid addiction issues we are dealing with here. as for the other ballot question, question one, the gaming question. that was voted down meaning another slots parlor will not be coming here to the bay state. and question two, another hotly debated one the one about charter schools and it was voted down by a pretty wide margin.
5:48 am
schools in the state by a dozen a year. and question 3, that was the one that dealt with conditions for farm animals. that passed by an enormous margin. 78 to 22%. as of january 2022, farm animals have room to stand up and turn around and prevent businesses from selling products that don't meet those standards. a lot of changes and things to take in here in massachusetts especially that pot question and the one on charter schools that a l o couple of months. but also a stunning victory for donald trump last night. hillary clinton won the bay state. we are going to be talking with people here at station about the trump victory as soon as they start getting here and we will bring you that reaction over the next cup of hours. live in boston, jessica reyes, fox25 news. well, soon be another casino right at the massachusetts border. rhode island voters passed a state bill that will allow a hotel and casino to be built in
