not the brightest of afternoons, not a complete washout. but again, rain dancing across southern new england. most towns less than one-tenth of an inch of rain. temps this afternoon near 60. >> anchor: 7news has more news today. a u.s. marine corps pilot killed after his f-18 jet crashed. the f-18 went down after taking off from a u.s. military base around 70 miles northeast of london. the aircraft crashed into a farm area about ten miles away from the base. no one on the ground was injured at the time of that crash. also a new york city police officer killed in the line of duty. flags across new york state ordered to be flown at half-staff to honor the fallen officer. 33-year-old randolph holier was killed during an exchange of gunfire with an armed suspect. the five-year veteran of the force was shot in the head. he was pronounced dead shortly after he arrived at the hospital in critical condition. he was also native of guyana where his father and grandfather

president something different in private. >> i told him my opinion, that i thought he should go, but follow his own instinct. >> anchor: some say his previous, more cautious opinion would be considered a liability if he does, in fact, plan to make a run for the white house. also syrian president bashar al-assad plans to make a trip to russia. some say they met yesterday and talked about ongoing military operations in syria. russia began air strikes against insurgents there three weeks ago. this is first known trip abroad for the syrian leader since war broke out in his country in 2011. >> anchor: meanwhile, the pentagon is confirming that russia and the u.s. have signed an agreement that minimizes the risk of incidents across syrian air space. it comes as beth countries continue carrying out air strikes against islamic state targets in syria. a pentagon spokesman says the agreement outlines safety protocols but does not include

into the worcester hills, approaching the city of worcester itself. so this will slide east-southeast, probably end up on the south shore within an hour or so. and there are more showers all the way back into new york state. it is a front. it's the dividing line between cool air which is trying to come out of northern new england into our part of the world and warmer air to our south. these fronts, they are great at producing clouds and showers. this front in particular is beginning to weaken. so that's why i think the showers, they will be scattered in nature, and, you notice, as we move through the time line here, that the showers begin to fade away and fall apart, so i think after 3:00, maybe a sprinkle, but otherwise a lot of clouds. temps at this time, north of that front low to middle 50s, beverly 55, but then you head south of the front, upper 60s, new bedford close to 70. providence also 69. the city of austin 57. so it will be coolest up north up across southern new hampshire, mid-50s. even metro boston mid-50s. further south numbers in the low to mid-60s.
a lot of clouds, a few showers through the middle part of the afternoon. for tonight, mostly cloudy skies with sprinkles. lows between 45 and 50. and tomorrow a lot of clouds. this weather system really not going anywhere. scattered showers, we have breaking news now. back to you, guys. >> anchor: all right. we're going to interrupt and go live to the white house rose garden. here have vice president joe biden. what will he say? >> mr. president, thank you inviting me to the rose garden for a minute. >> it's a pretty nice place. >> as my family and i have worked through the grieving process, i've said all along what i've said time and again to others, that it may very well be that that process, by the time we get through it, closes the window on mounting a realistic campaign for president, that it might close. i've concluded it has closed.
i know from previous experience that there is no timetable for this process. the process doesn't respect or much care about things like filing deadlines or debates and pray maris and caucuses, but i also know that i could do this if -- i couldn't do this if the family wasn't ready. the good news is the family has reached that point, but as i've said many times, my family have suffered loss, and i hope there would come a time, and i've said this to many other families, that sooner rather than later when you think of your loved one, it brings a smile to your lips before it brings a tear to your eyes. well, that's where the bidens are today, thank god. beau is our inspiration,
unfortunately, i think we're out of time, the time necessary to mount a winning campaign for the nomination. but while i will not be a candidate,ly not be silenced. i intend to speak out clearly and forcefully to influence as much as i can where we stand as a party and where we need to go as a nation. and this is what i believe: i believe that president obama has led this nation from crisis to recovery, and we're now on the cusp of resurgence. i'm proud to have played a part in that. this party, our nation, will be making a tragic mistake if we walk away or attempt to undo the obama legacy. the american people have worked too hard, and we've come too far for that. democrats should not only defend
record, they should run on the record. we've got a lot of work to get done over the next 15 months. and there's a lot that the president will have to get done, but let me be clear that we'll be building on a really solid foundation. but it all starts with giving the middle class a fighting chance. i know people love to call me middle class joe. i know in washington that's not meant as a comp limit. it means you're not that sophisticated. it just just a matter of fairness and economic growth. it's a matter of social stability for this nation. we cannot sustain the current levels of inequality that exist in this country. i believe the huge sums of unlimited and often secret money pouring into our politics is a
fundamental threat to our that. i think it's a fundamental threat. because the middle class will never have a fighting chance in this country as long as just several hundred families, the process. it's just that simple. i believe we have to level the playing field for the american people. that's going the take access to education and opportunity to work. we need to commitment. we're fighting for 14 years. we need to commitment to 16 years of free public education for all our children. we all know that 12 years of public education is not enough. as a nation, let's make the same commitment to a college education today that we made in high school education 100 years ago. children and childcare is the one biggest barrier for working families.
we need as the president proposed to triple the childcare tax credit. that alone will lead to dramatic increase in the number of women able to be in the workforce and standards. this. how do you pay for this? there are many equitable ways to pay for this. we can pay for all of this with one simple step: by limiting the deductions in the tax code to 28% of income. wealthy folks will end up paying a little bit more, but it's my guess, and i mean this sincerely, it's my guess they'll be happy to help build a stronger economy and a better educated america. i believe we need to lead more by the power of our example, as the president has, than merely by the example of our power. we have learned some very hard lessons for more than a decade of large-scale, open-ended military invasions. we have to accept the fact that
we can't solve all the world's problems. we can't solve many of them alone. the argument that we just have to do something when bad people do bad things isn't good enough. it's not a good enough reason for american intervention and to put our sons and daughters lives on the line, put them at risk. i believe we have to end thedy viive partisan politics that is ripping this country apart. and i think we can. it's mean spirited. it's petty. and it's gone on for much too long. i don't believe, like some do, republicans. i don't think we should look at republicans as our enemy. they are opposition. they're not our enemies. and for the sake of the country, we have to work together. as the president said many time, compromise is not a dirty word.
how does this country function without con accept suss? how can we move forward without consensus? four more years of this kind of pitched battle may be more than this country can take. we have to change it. we have to change it. i believe we need a moon shot in it's personal. i know we can do this. the president and i have been working hard on research and development because there are so many breakthroughs on the horizon in science and medicine, the things that are just about to happen. and we can make them real with aning absolute national commitment to end cancer. as we know it today. and i'm going to spend the next 15 months in this office pushing
as hard as i can to accomplish this, because i know there are democrats and republicans on the hill who share our passion to silence this deadly disease. if i could be anything, i would have want it to be the president that ended cancer because it is possible. i also believe we need the keep moving forward in the arc of this nation toward justice. the rights of the lgbt community, immigration reform, equal pay for women and protecting their safety from violence, rooting out institutional racism, at their core, every one of these things, every one of these things is about the same thing. it's about equality. it's about fairness. it's about respect. as my dad used to say, it's about affording every single person dignity.
every single one of these issues is about dignity. and the ugly forces of hate and division won't let up, but they do not represent america. they do not represent the heart of this country. they represent a small fraction of the political elite. and the next can president will have to take it on. most of all, i believe there are unlimited possibilities for this country. i don't know how many of the white house staff have heard me say repeatedly, we are so much better positioned than anyone else in the world. i've been doing this a long time. when i got elected as a 21-year-old kid, i was called an optimist. i am more optimistic about the possibilities, the incredible possibilities to leap forward than i have been at any time in my career, and i believe to my core that there's no country on
the face of the earth better positioned to lead the world in the 21st century than the united states of america. washington, though, just has to begin to function gun. instead of being a problem, it has to become part of the solution again. it has to be one america again. and at our core, i've always believed that what sets america apart from every other nation is that we, ordinary americans, believe in possibilities, unlimited possibilities. the possibilities of a kid growing up in a poor neighborhood, the possibility of speaking alone. a kid like jill and i, to be able to be anything we wanted to be, to do anything, anything,
that we want. that's what we're both taught. that's what the president was taught. it was real. that's what i grew up believing. and, you know, it's always been true in this country. and if we ever lose that, we've lost something very special. we'll have lost the very soul of this country. when i was growing up, my parents in tough times looked at me and would say to me and my brothers and sister, honey, it's going to be okay. they meant it. it's going to be okay. someone said go back to your old neighborhood, they successful. there are too many people in america, too many parents, who don't believe they can look
with certitude, honey, it's going to be okay. that's what we need the change. it's not complicated. that will be the true measure of our success. and we'll not have met it until every parent out there can look at their kid in tough times and say, honey, it's going to be okay. and mean it. that's our responsibility. and i believe it's totally within our power, the nation has done it before in difficult times. i've had the very great good fortune and privilege of being in public service most of my adult life, since i've been 25 years old. and through personal triumphs and tragedies, my entire family, my son beau, my son hunter, my daughter ashley, jill, our whole family, and this sounds corny,
we found purpose in public life. so we intend, the whole family, not just me, we intend to spend the next 15 months fighting for what we've always cared about, what my family has always cared about, with every ounce of our being, and working alongside the president and members of congress, and our future nominee, i am absolutely certain we are fully capable of accomplishing extraordinary things. we can do this. and when we do, america won't just win the future. we will own the finish line. thank you for all being so gracious to jill and me, for the last six or eight months and for our whole career for that matter. but i'm telling you, we can do so much more. and i'm looking forward to continuing to work with this man
thank you very much. >> anchor: there in the rose garden vice president joe biden making the announcement we have anticipated for so long, whether he was going to be in or out in the race for the white house. the word that came down today is he is out, he will not be running for president. he spoke very directly and from the heart. he talked about family losses and how it's taken his family so much time to get to the point where they can smile about their son beau who passed away back in may. that was one of his wish, that his father run for president, but he said he did not have the time to mount a successful campaign for the presidency, but he also said he wouldn't be silence on the sidelines either. >> anchor: that's right. he was flanked by the president and by his wife. he even said, and i quote, "beau is our inspiration. this has been a three-month-long decision. he will be on the sidelines, but
he won't be absent for this decision or for what will happen next, talking a lot about family values, the middle class, his inspiration for who will be nominated on that democratic ticket for president. i believe we have a live reporter here to talk with us about what we just heard the vice president say. nikole, are you there? >> anchor: we'll be getting back to that, but we are going the take a break from this and we are going to follow some breaking news locally. a west bridgewater cheerleading coach charged with one teenage girl he was training. prosecutors say the 14 year >> anchor: that's right. the man from brockton now faces several charges. here is nicole oliverio with breaking details. >> reporter: that 26-year-old faced the judge on monday. 26-year-old nicholas johnson used to be a coach at the full house all star cheerleading gymnastics, but apparently according to the district

i think it will be that type of an afternoon where we go back and forth between the rain showers and the clouds. sun. it's a weather system draped right across massachusetts. you notice here, nothing up there in northern new england. rhode island. but that weather system does extend back into new york state. it's a front, it's the dividing line between cool air up across northern new england and warmer air to the south down through connecticut and rhode island. so this weather system doesn't hours. weaken. so that's why i think chance of showers will start to fade away by the middle and certainly the end of the afternoon. and early this evening. so no real major issues in terms of roads or evening commute. if you're thinking about yard work, i cannot guarantee the afternoon stays dry. i think there will be a few showers. temps right now 50s north of boston including boston itself. south of town, south of that front, that's where you find the warmer air. plymouth at 66, new bedford at 67. for the afternoon, a wide range
in temps. temps basically mid-50s to the low 60s. warmest again south of the mass pike. for tonight, a lot of clouds. a few sprinkles, lows 45 to 50. tomorrow still lingering clouds. and still the risk of a few showers i think tomorrow afternoon more so than tomorrow morning. kind of the opposite of today. it is milder tomorrow with temps expected to reach the lower 70s. normal high is 60. boston tomorrow 71. norwood 71, as well. worcester at 67. reason for the showers tomorrow afternoon, a cool front. that will give a nice shove to all these clouds and the shower threat out to sea. so we have a lot of sunshine coming at us on friday. and it will be a little cooler despite that sun. temps on friday into the mid-50s. much the same on saturday. saturday will be the brighter of the two weekend days. sunday is not least to rain, but i think a couple showers sunday morning. we can get them out of there in time for the patriots-jets game at 1:00 at gillette.
