81678 plymouth 84. the city reached 90 degrees this afternoon but unlike the last few afternoons where the temperatures were in the 90's the dew point does were down foot 50's so not nearly as humid as it has been. here is that muggy air dc at 75. these are dew point temperatures. cincinnati 73. and this humidity is creeping and it's going to start working back up into new england during the day tomorrow because of this storm system right here which will pass to the north of us, but this warm front tied to that storm, that will come tomorrow bringing humanity as well as more clouds and the risk of scattered showers and storms and some of the storms may be feisty. overnight tonight no storm threat tonight, 66 to 71. tomorrow a lot of clouds and a few peeks of sunshine, a scattering of showers and storm again so some of you may go most of day and not hear one rumble of thunder. there will be one of those after i think but it will be a day we all feel more humidity. once again through sovereign new england 82 to 87. so your time line tomorrow
morning, i don't think it's a big deal early in the day and then here comes that warm front and as the warm front is moving through southern new england, it is going to pop scattered showers and storms and sometimes these warm fronts will interact with these thunderstorms and try to energize them and give them a little more energy and so we may have a couple of strong to severe thunderstorms. more so i think western new england than our part of the world but even late tomorrow afternoon and into tomorrow evening there may be some stronger storms that approach the coastline. the te think is the heavy rain because again the air is turning tropical with all of that moisture so there may be some locations where you get a quick two or three inches of rain and just a short apt of time. we saw that on saturday in shirley. wind might be an issue as well. hail not as much of a threat and again there is a slight chance that one or two of these storms may try to rotate. i think the best chance of those rotating storms will be back through western new england but that's not to say one or two may try to find their way up into our pat of the world late tomorrow afternoon.

things going on in practice. you have a million things to worry about about yourself. ifyou see it, you see it of it just kind happens that way. you think about so many things what the next period is, what happened if the last period and it's just tough to see everything i guess. >> anchor: so gronk status a bit up in the air one thing that is sure to not change the patriots almost certainly going to be very cautious with him moving forward just as they have all preseason. recording outside gillette stadium, trey daerr, 7 sports. >> anchor: red sox hit the road this week plg four cities. boston, chief land, baltimore and detroit including today's makeup game against the indians. david ortiz getting a hug from terry francona during a pregame ceremony honoring big papi. tito not feeling too friendly after this though. top of the six ortiz erasing a one run deficit with one swing of the bat of a two run home run off josh tomlin. his 17th of the season red sox up 2-1. two batters later jackie bradley junior follows papi's lead. he launches one dope and gone to
