9:15 am
double-edged sword. this debate was a slam-dunk for clinton. because at a time when national security experience is suddenly at a premium, she standard. bernie sanders and martin o'malley really weren't losers. but when it came to foreign policy, both came across more as supporting actors than potential presidents. neither challenged clinton's views very aggressively. but big challenges will come from the republican party. and that's why this debate was also a win for the republicans. paris will trigger a full-throated debate over clinton's role in porn policy and president obama's. and they are both vulnerable. the last thing this nation needs is another issue that divides us. but that is exactly what paris presents. will it be full-speed ahead or we are going to have to choose. i'm andy hiller. and that's my instinct. . >> there is much more coming

9:18 am
50's early this afternoon. 39 in worcester right now. 43 out in fitchburg. anything over 20 miles per hour with gusts shows up on this map. we are seeing some of the 20-mile-per-hour winds down through hyannis, down through the vineyard and over toward nantucket. from boston up to worcester, generally, closer to 15 miles an hour. again, not as powerful as yesterday. at times, a breelz or gust. 20-25 miles an hour. you see that on the forecast model here into the afternoon and early evening hours. those winds subside into the evening hours. on. not a whole lot. it is quiet. track. we have some patches of clouds that mix in and dim out the sunshine at times. ly call it partly sunny dale overall. you can see some more clouds through the north and west of us. across southern canada. and occasionally, this will spill into southern new england and central new england. seasonable weather. the average high temperature this time of year, in the lower 50's. we will be close to that in boston this afternoon. and again, tomorrow afternoon.
