>> reporter: tgif, everyone. remember aback with a live look at saugus and you can see traffic is moving along nicely if you are getting ready to head out and with a to begin the weekend but also there is a rain drop on the camera lens and all that spray on the roads, it's very well and raw out there. . too. one of days you have to have those sturdy umbrellas or you walk around and it turns inside out and you will be sol i suppose, right? . good news. hurricane joaquin is moving out to sea so that's always good news, right, chris? >> reporter: it looks like he will miss the eastern seaboard by 3 to 400 miles there.
along the eastern seaboard along from the hurricane in the bahamas right now. take a look at the radar. it hasfilled in even north of the mass pike over the last few hours with that rain steady light to moderate rain at times and it is a cold rain and if you don't hole on to one of those sturdy umbrellas tight you may chase it down the row as we've had a gusty wind as well gusting over 30 miles per hour along the coastline. stationery front to the south of us as moisture continues to get pumped up and over that. that's why we do have that rainfall in here. however, the low level winds out of the north-northeast and that is driving in a colder pattern in fact temperatures right now only in the mid 40's to 50 degrees. so there is that raw day that chilly feel to the air and here are some of the winds gulfing at times near 30 miles per hour. close to it in boston, 33 mile-per-hour gusts in plymouth, 36 in hyannis, strongest wind gust over the next day or so will be down through southeastern mass, especially along the coastline. so we have a coval flood advisory in effect until 5:00 p.m. this evening for the east and northeast facing coast lines and then again there is a
another coastal flood advisory three to 6:00 p.m. tomorrow. high tide right around 4:00. we do expect an hour or so either side of it to seek pockets of minor coastal flooding once again with those onshore winds being strong. wind advisory also in play tonight into tomorrow morning and until 11:00 down through the cape and islands and back into buzzard areas bay for winds gulf gulfing at times 35 to 45 miles per hour. the bigger picture across eastern seaboard again all of the rain is not really related to joaquin. joaquin is way down into the bahamas. there is some tropical moisture getting in trained into the system but there is a separate upper level low that's spinning its wheels across the mississippi valley. that is drawing in lot of moisture. will hear about flooding rains with the carolinas the next couple of days. joaquin even the bahamas. this has been really stationery almost over the last 24 hours but it's finally moving north now at five and that's a good sign to see it move north and northeast because you can see bound of the united states by several00 dread miles as we go
next week so i do expect minimal impact from joaquin itself. however, there is a separate system that's on the east coast. that's going to create those flooding rains back through the carolinas. in fact portions of north carolina, south carolina perhaps 8 to ten, maybe even isolated 15 inches of rain over the next count every days. also this area of high pressure across quebec, that's an issue for us because it's so strong when you get these big pressure differences from that high to the north and low to the south of us, that drives the wind and will continue to see wind gusts at times 35 to 45 miles per hour along the coastline through tomorrow morning and because of that we do have minor coastal flooding that we expect and we continue to see these showers into tomorrow, especially during the morning hours. in terms of the rainfall over the weekend, most of the showers over the weekend will be tomorrow morning, in the afternoon i think it tapers off to patchy drizzle but it's still a damp day with a gust iwind out of the northeast there and on sunday there may be a patch or two of drizzle but i do expect by sunday that we start seeing some dry spots and maybe even a couple of breaks in the overcast
overcast. boston north and west generally an additional inch or less across southeastern mass you may pick up another inch and a half of rain before this is all said and done. 7 on 7 forecast, allowing for a nicer weather through much of next week. warming it back into the upper 60's by the middle partof the week as well. guys? >> anchor: time now for fast track traffic. here is joe staple ton with a . >> anchor: getting a rook look right now at 128 southbound rain soaked but not moving all that through the dedham area and delays of course down by route 24 and route [#] 5. 128 northbound dealing with a tough ride as well from the waltham section pretty much right up into woburn. getting a look at route 1 northbound right now around lynn felt parkway, this slow ride continues up through revere and through the saugus area, very slow going again downtown. that's the zakim bridge on the right, northbound and southbound a tight ride so are the storrow drive ramps and other slow spots are all out west and a lot of them on the pike westbound. clearing exit 17, heading to 128
