4:30 pm
line only slowly drifting to the north. we have that blocking high pressure in northern new england which will not give ground meaning that this red line, the center of the storm, does not come barreling up into southern new england. in fact, i want to show you the ocean temperatures here. if you notice this deep, red coloring right there is the gulf stream and the thinking is that the center of the storm is going to go right over the gulf stream park itself then these tropical systems they feed off that warm ocean water so sit there is going to likely hurricane, something we'll have to watch but the thinking still even if she does -- the word i'm searching for here, get back into i ahurricane is that it would not be able to directly affect new england. so tomorrow we're talking sunshine, sunday breezy conditions with monday scattered showers and that wind dying down and again we will detail your forecast coming up in a few minutes. >> anchor: all right, thank you
