>> anchor: wet there has worked its a in and it's sticking around with us throughout the better part of this weekend. 58 right now in boston, we still have the persistent wind out of the northeast and that will be the case for the next couple few days. let's talk about that wet weather. i was just looking at trey daerr's live shot at fenway and rain has falling. we have more moderate rainfall along and just south of the mass pike moving through some steadier rainfall, dorchester as i mentioned fenway getting it right now. i we can still get a game in tonight but it may take a while i'm lot of delays there but we have to wait and see what happens. along the south shore and also provincetown getting out of the heavier rain at this point. also southeastern mass, lakeville getting hit pretty hard, middleboro all of these heavier bands that indicated with the yellows and orange
line right here just moved through martha's vineyard and nantucket. but there is some breaks behind it so it's we widespread scattered showers on again and off again you can expect at times there could be heavy rainfall and then that heavy rainfall moves on out so running through the time line you can see scattered showers possibility breaking a part a little bit into litter this evening and then into the overnight this heavier rainfall becomes more widespread. i think our wettest time through the wed tomorrow and then breaking apart some of those scattered showers late tomorrow afternoon into more of a scattered showers drizzly activity that will be the case for sunday as well. we have a chance for rain not only through tonight and tomorrow but really through the next couple of few days, even into tuesday a possibility for some of those scattered showers. but we need every drop we can get so how much can we squeeze out of this action? it looks looks by sunday evening
a half to even closer to two inches in some of those areas that get hit the hardest. again we need it. the unfortunate part is it's happening on a weekend and there are a lot of outtook acticket that are happening and i think heaviest rain tomorrow morning and then wet, damp and drizzly as we get into sunday. saturday looks to be the rainier of the two. wind direction as i mentioned before out of the northeast and this has been relentless onshore winds that are keeping our temperatures cool and ry right windy along the coastline into tomorrow so something that we'll be watching closely as well as wet weather. game day forecast for the sox for fenway again a wet one tonight, tomorrow as well expecting those scattered showers hopefully by sunday we can speed it up a little bit. this is baseball heaven's way of saying good-bye to big papi. hurricane matthew also a very powerful storm category four hurricane at this point. we have to talk about that in more detail which we will get to this evening.
