9:15 am
>> reporter: if you got tickets to the pats home opener, i wouldn't worry too much. showers north of the pike. i'm expecting that trend to continue at least through the morning hours. no problems for the t with the humidity, though. the humidity levels more florida-like than new england-like. and can't entirely rule out a spotty shower during the game. the best chance for rain will be while you are driving home from the game after things wind down. in fact, the chance of rain increases a little bit later on this evening. a little more worried about the sox game. even still, i think they will get hopefully, the sweep in of the yankees without a problem. but can't entirely rule out a brief rain delay here and there. i think they will get the game
9:16 am
late tonight into the first half of the day tomorrow. it is really tomorrow when we are likely to see the bulk of the rain. so far, on the radar here, these showers, when they hit the new england line, or rather new york line, when they cross the new york state border, they are fairly heavy. as they get further and further east, they start to fall apart here. and if i put the radar into motion, you get the trend. they are moving more northeast than due east. so far, all the rain has been north of the pike and i'm expecting that to continue. i zoom out on that even more. make it into southern new hampshire. then we have a big break in the action. and then another batch that's way down here in kentucky. so in other words, get some showers rolling through morning. probably see several hourls of dry weather during the middle part of the day. maybe another round later on this evening. it is part of a front that is a really slow-moving front. it is going to take a couple of days to get out of here. probably won't be until tuesday before we see a real nice sunny day. very, very hilt or miss showers this afternoon. again, the green areas will be areas that are likely to see
9:17 am
a little bit better chance of rain tomorrow morning into tomorrow afternoon. and then there is that front. still hanging out tomorrow evening. again, we are still looking at some clouds lingering around on tuesday. finally, things start to clear out. temperature-wise, already well up into the 70's. quite a bit warmer than we were yesterday: again, a little bit on the muggy side today. or humid side. that will continue overnight tonight and into tomorrow. best chance of rain late tonight into early tomorrow afternoon. and that is when we rain. clearing out tuesday afternoon. plenty of sunshine for wednesday. and the first day of fall coming up on thursday. >> nancy: much-needed rain there on the way. the first day of fall. >> kris: we need a party. >> nancy: i think so. pumpkin spice lattes. >> kris: pumpkin spice everything. let's just do it that way. >> nancy: sweaters. coming up, a south shore community gets creative to help find a cure for cancer.

fayetteville, north carolina when it crashed into an overpass saturday afternoon. . >> it veered off from its lane of travel into the median. forecast it did miss the concrete columns that basically, support the bridge which is where we are at now. but it did strike a guardrail. >> nancy: the side of the bus sheared away. some passengers were ejected from the bus as it ran off the road and into a median. there were 46 people onboard, including students and coaches from they were on their way to a football game. >> unfortunately, and sadly, as a result, they didn't make it. we had this tragedy that occurred here. >> nancy: family members, relatives, and friends were following the bus when the crash happened. no other vehicles were involved in the violent collision. >> this is probably one of the most tragic accidents because i put it in this context. you have young people. although they are in college, they are just starting their life out.
9:23 am
complete. the north carolina highway patrol is now saying it looks like the bus blew one of its front tires, causing it to swerve into the median and hit that guardrail. >> kris: a wild scene out in arizona. a plane full of sky-divers crashes into a house. we will hear from witness who is described what they saw. fios is not cable.
9:24 am
differently. thanks for calling fios, this is ryan. you can't tell me this cord isn't in, i know it's in, it's in but it's not working. i'm sending you a link to the my fios app that's going to let me see what you're seeing. really? yes...mr. mcenroe. see that cord? just plug it into the connector on the right. so you can clearly see what's in and what's out? oh, absolutely. i like that.

9:31 am
i expect that to continue through at least the morning hours. because if you kind of watch the direction these showers are going, almost all of them moving to the northeast. got another batch in albany that will be passing through southern vermont and into new hampshire. and then afterthat, got a nice break in the radar. this is not going to be an all-day event whatsoever. some spotty showers this morning. maybe another round a little bit later on today. in between a cloudy but little batch of rain. heading twarld ipswich and other hampton, newburyport. most of the rain, again, across the north shore. south of boston. still getting some sunshine this morning. 74 right now in boston. lots of humidity in the air. a muggy feel. generally, cloudy skies. very, very hit or miss showers. possibly a rumble of thunder as we get into the afternoon hours. again so, hit or miss. i would not cancel any plans whatsoever. we will talk about that and the rest of the 7-day coming up. >> nancy: rob, thank you. chaos in manhattan after an explosion goes off in the crowded neighborhood of chelsea. right now this is a live look at the scene. roads still blocked off there.

metal. >> right now i feel... i'm scared. i don't know what happened. because if you live here, like, the other guy said, it is going to be scary to walk around just to get groceries now. >> reporter: it is still unclear what motivated the blast. right now officials are frantically searching for the suspect, hoping surveillance video from some of the area businesses can help. amaka ubaka, 7 news today in new england. >> kris: both presidential nominees weighing in on the explosion. donald trump supporters that it was a bomb that went off as details were still being confirmed. hillary clinton said the investigation still needs to unfold. >> i must tell you that just before i got off the plane, a bomb went off in new york, and nobody knows exactly what's going on. but boy, we are living in a time... we better get very tough, folks. we better get very, very tough. >> we have to let the investigation unfold. we have been in touch with
9:35 am
the mayor's office in new york, to learn what they are discovering as they conduct this investigation. and i'll have more to tell you about it when we actually know some facts. >> kris: officials have yet to determine the exact nature of the cause of the explosion. >> nancy: this comes hours aftera device went off not too far away in seaside park, new jersey. no one was injured. it happened just before thousands of people were set to run in a marine corps charity race. th officers dressed in tactical gear. they secured the area. a blast went off inside trash can with debris spread thousands of feet. >> kris: 62 syrian soldiers are dead after a botched air strike in syria on sarpd. now, the u.s. is expressing regrelt for the deaths. military officials say the u.s.-led coalition thought it was hitting isis. but it struck syrian government troops instead. an official says the u.s. told russia in advance where the
9:36 am
but russia is still blaming the united states for failing to coordinate this air strike. >> nancy: also on 7: a small plane crashes into a house saturday night in arizona. two people were inside the house at the time of the crash. luckily, they were not hurt. the pilot was rushed to a nearby burn center. and is now in stable condition. officials say the plane was also carrying five sky-divers for the annual constitution fair and all survived the crash. >> by the time he hit lark spur here, he was in too seen the of a dive. i thought he was not going to make it. >> nancy: an investigation is under way. >> kris: now about that deadly shooting rampage in philadelphia. police have identified it is gunman who they say shot two veteran police officers and killed a woman. now there are new clues into this suspect's motive.

9:38 am
see the blood. >> i heard a bunch of shots. then i came to the door. i seen a bunch of cops on the street. running. >> kris: the suspect ran for two more blocks and fired into a white car, wounding a man and killing a woman. finally in, an alley, glen was shot and killed by police fns. but not before wounding another officer. police say the rambling leter found at the crime scene may provide some clues to the shooting, but the motive still remains unclear. >> nancy: a gunman causing trouble on the t darius palmer spent eight hours in a standoff with police after he barricaded himself on an amtrak train friday night. a passenger on the train noticed he had a handgun and called 911. nearly 200 passengers were evacuated. police shut down the tracks in both directions. evechlly, police were forced to use tear gas leading to this man eels surrender and arrest. witnesses say he was yelling loudly and sounded like he was on drugs.
9:39 am
in alabama could lead to rising gas prices right here in our backyard. because that line stretches from texas all the way to new york harbor. it was severed last week, spilling more than 250,000 gallons of gasoline. officials say the pipeline is responsible for 40% of the east coast gas. so price increases and supply issues are expected across a number of states. >> nancy: still ahead, tb 12 may not be on the field tonight. that is not keeping him from the game of football. we will tell you wh spent some time prak ticking...
9:40 am
9:41 am

>> the corner of the end zone! leaping catch for the touchdown! >> kris: tom brady throwing touchdowns this weekend at his alma mater. michigan. the pats quarterback took to facebook to share this video of him throwing a touchdown pass to his son on friday. future receiver in the making, maybe. brady currently serving a four-game suspension but made his way to his alma matter at university of michigan to be team's honorary captain as they squared off against colorado and then beat them handily. >> nancy: our next quarterback
9:43 am
there. keeping that in check, rob. looks like also some nice weather... decent weather for today's game. >> reporter: i would go with decent. not a beautiful day. it does look like the rain will hold off for the most part. not going to be a washout by any means. we are keeping an eye on the tropics. giving us a hint as to how much rain we might get. lots to talk about. we have tropical depression julia. tropical storm karl. we have this disturbance near the coast of africa. the hurricane center has a 70% chance of becoming our next tropical depression. av works. meantime, karl, barely a tropical storm at the moment. could become a hurricane later on this week as it passes south of bermuda. we are interested in julia. this time yesterday, it looked like julia had only hours to live. amazingly, it is actually held together over the last 24 hours and actually, looks healthier now than it has in the last couple of days. the hurricane center believes it will not only hold together but may gain a little bit of strength as it drifts north towards north carolina.
9:44 am
anybody up and down the east coast. for us, we were hoping it would fall apart and some of the moisture would get pulled up to the northeast. that would actually increase our chances of rain tomorrow and increase our chance of beneficial rain. if it holds together as a steady entity or its own entity, i should say, that moisture stays stuck down there. we don't get as much rainfall. but in the meantime, got some generally fairly light showers across parts of the north shore and also parts of the seacoast of new hampshire. again, another batch here towards albany moving across many of those same areas. then there is a nice break in the action. bottom line, the rain that is out there now, this is not going to be an all-day event. spotty showers, mainly well north of the pike this morning. then a break in the action. then possibly some more a little bit later on this afternoon or evening. all part of a front. there is the front. there is what is now julia. and again, we were hoping julia would fall apart and get absorbed into this front and some of that moisture would head this way. now it looks less likely that is going to happen.
9:45 am
of rain a little bit. we are hoping we will get a half an inch when this is all said and done. green areas are likely to see rain. nothing around foxboro. i think we will be okay. a little bit later on, 8:00 this evening, the red sox game. a little bit more spotty green in the boston area. so maybe a brief shower. maybe, maybe a brief rain delay. i still think they will get that game in without any problems. best chance of rain late tonight into tomorrow morning. and that chance of rain goes into tomorrow afternoon. still kind of cloudy lat early part of the day on tuesday. before things finally clear out. temperature-wise, we have upper 60's, low and mid-70's out there. kind of a warm and muggy start. especially compared to the last couple of days. it will be humid through the day and into tomorrow. clearing out tuesday afternoon. lots of sunshine on wednesday. and thursday is the fall equinox. >> kris: we are planning the fall party. nancy is bringing the pumpkin spice everything. we need pumpkin spice cleaning

dear fellow citizen, i know what it's like to live a full life. but living for today doesn't mean forgetting about tomorrow. most people spend more time planning their vacation than they do for retirement. but i like to think of retirement like it's a 30-year vacation. don't worry. it just takes some planning. and i can help. so if you have a question about retirement, ask me. sincerely, bernard tynes

>> reporter: no question, this team can only go as far as the pitching can take them. th aftera rough first three months. the pressure as of late falling on the bullpen which showed up in a big way on saturday. sox down 5-4 in the 7th. mookie betts with the high chop in front of the plate. gets over short. allowing xander bogaerts to score. we have a new game here with things even at five. later in the frame, betts on third. warren unloads the wild pitch. betts scores the go-ahead run. the sox relievers never

10:16 am
humidity. best chance for any showers will probably be when you are going home from gillette stadium later on after the game is over. a little better chance of rain this evening. even then, we will still be hit or miss. at most, i'm thinking a brief rain delay. they will get the game in and hopefully, get the sweep in against the yanks. right now, we are some real spotty showers. mainly across vermont and new hampshire. and mostly north of massachusetts here. looks like we've got, i think in new york city. is that right? i'm going tos to it back to nancy and kris. let them get to that. >> kris: all right. we are looking at a live picture of new york city. the man on the right is governor andrew cuomo. the governor of new york. he is getting ready to address the media to update us on that explosion that happened last night. in the chelsea neighborhood. 29 people injured in that blast. they are doing some introductions here and briefing the media on what's happening here. we are going to listen in to the governor when he speaks in
10:17 am
>> nancy: this happened last night. this has been raising a lot of alarms. a lot of people on the streets when this happened. a busy chelsea neighborhood. an explosion. and then causing even more alarm was this pressure-cooker that was found, a second device found blocks away. and they are looking into that because it had wires as well as a cell phone attached. and here is new york governor andrew cuomo. >> thank you very much. first let me begin by thanking frank and ronnie and the whole team at the mta. responders who have done an extraordinary job since this explosion happened yesterday evening. as everybody knows, it was an explosion on west 23rd street. there is significant property damage onworth sides... on both sides of the explosion. 29 people were injured. there were no fatalities. that is something to give thanks for today. when you see the amount of damage, we really were very lucky that there were no
10:18 am
we just inspected the subway station, the station in the immediate area to see if there was any damage done from the explosion to the subway station, the tunnels, et cetera. and we are happy to report that there was no damage. so the m.t.a. is ready to be up and running as early as tomorrow to return to full service for those stations. and exits that are closed. depending on where the investigation is at that time. but we will keep you up to date on that. there is... i have been briefed by all the relevant agencies. at this time, there is no evidence of an international terrorism connection with this
10:19 am
early in the investigation, aened it is just starting. the f.b.i. has brought the evidence, that they have collected from the site of the explosion as well as the bomb that did not detonate. they brought that to quantico. they will be studying that. there was also an incident in seaside park, new jersey. they are also taking that materi that material also. i spoke with governor christie this morning. and we are coordinating resources between new york and new jersey to see if there is anything we can learn. the main coordinate mechanism is something called the joint terrorism task force. and that's up and operational.
10:20 am
jersey appeared to be different than the ones that were in manhattan. as i mentioned, the response by the first responders was extraordinary. you know, you drill all the time. and you run exercises all the time. it is still different when it happens. i spoke to mayor de blasio. the nypd did a great job. the f.b.i. has done a great job. homeland security, new york state police, fire deme everyone really worked together and is coordinating on the investigation. fbs we have no reason to believe at this time, that there is any further immediate threat. but just to be cautious, we will be deploying close to an additional 1,000 new york state police and national
10:21 am
subway stations. again, just to eron the side of caution. i want new yorkers to be confident when they go back to work on monday that new york is up and running and we are doing everything we need to do. and i feel comfortable that this additional deployment will help do that. and is prudent on this occasion. the bottom line number one, whoever placed these bombs, we will find and they will be brought to justice. period. you have the finest police agencies in the world when you come to new york. and we will find who planted these explosives. and they will be punished. number two, we will not allow these type of people and these
10:22 am
life in new york. that is what they want to do. we are not going to let them do it. this is freedom. this is democracy. and we are not going to allow them to take that from us. so feel safe. everything that needs to be done is being done. and more. and we are going to enjoy new york and we are going to go back to work tomorrow. just like we do on any monday morning. >> can you clarify what devices were taken to quantico? the pressure-cooker and then the device in the dumpster. as far as you know, were they both sent to quantico? we were told they were sent to rodman's neck. >> the evidence that is now being gathered is going to quantico. i believe to seaside park. the bombs are en route to can't co. the unexploded device from new
10:23 am
to can't co. i'm not sure. >> we know there was a pressure-cooker. >> they were both similar in design. let's let the f.b.i. do their investigation. again, this is very early. they are just getting the devices. they are just starting the investigation. so once we get the investigation, we will have all the facts. then we can speak intelligently. >> the mayor said last night that there was no evidence this being connected to terror. what are you hearing? >> i believe the mayor was saying there was no connection with international terrorism. and that is correct. no one has taken credit. there have been no international groups that have put out any statements that are connecting them with this action. now, it depends on your
10:24 am
is, obviously, an act of terrorism. but it is not linked to international terrorism. in other words, we find no isis connection. et cetera. but a bomb going off is generically a terrorist activity. that is how we are going to consider it. and that is how we will prosecute it also. but the mayor is correct. there was no link, ats stage, to international terrorism. >> nancy: that is new york governor andrew cuomo giving an update after that explosion last night in new york's chelsea neighborhood. the big headline of that, the update was that there is no evidence at this point, of international terrorism. but this investigation is still very early. >> kris: the governor wanted to stress it is very early in the investigation. they don't want to jump to any conclusions.
10:25 am
gathered up the evidence from the chelsea neighborhood. as well as the evidence from seaside, new jersey. they are taking that evidence down to quantico. both of the device, the pressure-cooker that we saw intact and the one exploded were similar in design. that may give them some sort of clue that they are probably connected. >> nancy: they are going to be looking into why that second device did not go off. they will be looking for the person who is responsible for planting those devices. but they are also saying, of course, that the big in a trash can right before a marine corps charity race, thankfully thorx one was hurt in the incident. they are saying these incidents do not seem to be connected. a lot to follow there.
