your weekend, a 30% chance of an isolated shower saturday morning and sunday morning an isolated shower. but to really get out of this drought, it's going to take some work. it just doesn't happen in one afternoon with a downpour or even a couple of davis of rain. we need a pattern where you're offered a fair amount of wifed spread rain every four or five days for several weeks and that's not happening. allergy forecast, ragweed really jumps by the end of the week and mostly on friday and backs off a little bit on saturday and but warm and humid conditions through the weekend. these temps right here that's not overly crazy for this time the year. the normal high in the city is about 75. 72 is not too shabby but the dewpoints, it's humid out here and uncomfortable and that is the indicates overnight tonight and really for the rest of the week and in response, it's because much hermine just sitting well south of new england and just a pinwheeling moisture up off the atlantic ocean and into southern new england. mainly in the form of clouds and
showers, but no widespread rain. what that southeasterly wind has been doing in response to the remnants of hermine is adding human to the air. and that is going to be with us for a few days. there are a few showers south of the pike, south of boston and i think that's where they're gonna stay put. if you have any outdoor plans for the rest of the afternoon into this evening, the highest chance for any shower or downpour activity will be down through portions of eastern connecticut and even in those locations and counties, the chance is minimal. so this fades away and heads northeast, dying a slow death overnight tonight and through the day tomorrow. kind of sad but out you go, hermine. and here comes a cool front that will move into new england. it doesn't have any cool air. in fact, if anything, it allows even hotter air to arrive on friday. you're thinking how does that happen. well, with a west wind behind that weather system it does not mean a sea breeze on friday. that will allow temps to cook.
80s with weather that was basically going to be similar to what we had today. morning clouds and partly sunny in the afternoon. upper 70s to the low 80s, dracut 82. boston around 78. concord 82. terchs on friday near 90 degrees. but again it will be a breeze going through the day on friday. saturday and sunday there are some raindrops there but i think only an isolated shower each morning. looks like right now both of those afternoons should be dry. see you at 5:30. >> see you then, jr. maverick on the mend and getting a second chance. this canine forced to chew off part of his leg in order to save his own life. his former owner is charged with animal cruelty. >> now he has a new family who's happy to give him a home. 7's byron barnett has more on maverick's recovery. >> reporter: running freely around his new backyard, maverick, the loveable 2-year-old german shepherd, has gotten a second chance.
