>> anchor: reading moon nearly full from christine tamer and boston. this is the tobin and distance. wow, good shot. if you have a chance get out and check out. it's a big, bright one too. it will i rule nature the night sky. perfect conditions for radiation radiational cooling with those temperatures falling back in the suburbs. in the city we should escape the freeze and frost but still a
chilly one for us. maybe back over the common, back bay, we'll be in the low 30's but at logan airport mid and upper 30's. anyway, stormy midweek, whip, rain and mile air. whole stew of kind of autumn weather for us. we haven't seen a storm like this in quite some time and it will give us a good dose of rain which we badly need. nashua now at 50 degrees. 48 worcester. 45 in far shall field. 47 new bedford. and 45 in chatham. 44 in portsmouth by the way. so our temperatures are already looking down. now tomorrow is a gray day but we're already facing this. a storm system here in the deep south. the remnants of patricia are in here somewhere in spirit i guess because the moisture is here. circulation is not the same. it's a broader area of low pressure. great day tomorrow. just like today. underneath high pressure, temperature in the mid and upper 50's or mid 50's i should say. i'm not going to go 58 or 59 will be the extreme. low 50's along the coastline with the sea breeze. this high pulls away and we
might see high clouds move in from our storm system tomorrow afternoon, tomorrow evening. as far as rain, holing that off until wednesday it will go through the mid afternoon it will come in lightly and then step up its game as we go through the night. warm front will pass and we might even get some thunderstorms in here late on wednesday night or very early on thursday morning. they exit quickly. this is a very fast moving weather system. it's no going to linger very long but what we do see of it on wednesday night and early on thursday will be a lot of rain. one to two inches maybe pockets of two to three possible in any downpours or thunderstorms. a guffy wind with winds enough enoughing over 30 miles per hour hour. maybe even 40 plus on cape cod and the islands. badly needed we're over two and a half inches below normal for rainfall. compare to that to last year at this time. 5.83 in that particular month and thursday game does not look like it will be jeopardized by any wet weather. 62 very mild degrees and as far as the forecast for sail especially over the next two days, 53, that's the pick of the
the first part of the day will be dry before we get into the rain and halloween looking way ahead. saturday night 49 degrees, cool, doesn't look all that bad in fact. don't forget we're turning our clocks back. back on halloween night or you can wait until 2:00 a.m. on sunday morning. however you want to slice it. our temperatures are in the 50's both days. see you tonight. >> reporter: preparing for a divisional game is never easy but try getting ready for two of them in a span of five days. that is the latest her el for the patriots halfway home after taking out the jets yesterday. now it's on to the dolphins on short rest on thursday night. tom brady overcoming 11 drops from his receiving corp, six of them from brandon la fell to engineer a pair of touchdowns scoring drives in the fourth quarter. not much time to celebrate that 30 to 23 win though because miami comes to town riding a two
coach dan campbell. tre dare has more on pats turning the page front oh. >> reporter: the miami dolphins have a towly new identity under head coach dan campbell. under joe philbin, one sack in four games. now they had ten in their last two macing it even more difficult to prepare for a bit of unknown on a very short week for the patriots. >> reporter: they a whole new team from the beginning of the year. it looks like they are playing good ball right now . >> reporter: there is some great things that come along with the thursday night games but at the same time, there is some challenges physically for the guys that out there playing the game. i don't think that's any mystery you guys are not hearing any new information. it is what it is. >> anchor: sort of time to prepare. just have to be mentally ready. just make sure you are sharp. the walk throughs on film, just we're really flying through plays. woe know what to do because we get full speed reps at them because of the short week. i will just be mentally and physically prepared and put all
into this game. >> anchor: dolphins giving patriot problems in recent years years. they have won two of the last three games they played against new england. recording inside gillette stadium, trey daerr, 7 sports. >> anchor: despite their slow start to the season, there have been positives early on for the unit. their 27 goals is tied for fourth most in the league. now if they could just do something about that 0, 3 and one record at homement b's get another chance to grab win number one on the guard nice tomorrow against the coyotes. still no word on whether mat bol boleski will be able to get back into the lineup but regardless of who is in or out, something must change when it comes to . i felt like we played 40 minutes pretty good hockey game and for some reason the other 20 was not as good. so we played really well for 60 minutes, just trying to upset
so at home we have to take the same approach. >> anchor: first base coving hires rarely make headlines but then again those hires rarely are former general managers. rubin ama are o junior goes from running phillies to hopping into the coach's box at fenway park. hardly the usual career trajectory of those front office types. i guess it is unusual but i always had an itch to be back on the field so it's always been something that i thought about quite a bit and i was afford a wonderful opportunity when john called about 8 or ten days ago. had it not been the red sox, frankly i probably would not be doing this. >> anchor: vikings and lions, teddy bridgewater here looking way up top for the ricky wide out stephan digs, how is this for your first career touchdown? digs stretches way out to make
