winds at 125mph. hurricane warnings posted all the way to the florida coastline through the bahamas. this is going to be a major storm for the bahamas here and very close to the east coast of florida, the eye of the hurricane. and the national hurricane center is predicting that it will be either three or category four going through the bahamas and very close to the coast of florida. it makes all the difference in the world whether you get that eye very close to the coastline or over it or if you can keep it, you know, 100 or you know, hopefully if there's any adjustment to the track, it would be to the east and not to the west, but potentially a very dangerous situation along the east coast of florida by the time you get into friday here and eventually into saturday morning. a little bit further off the coast. then we get into sunday and monday. you notice how far south this track was? yesterday we showed you the national hurricane center forecast that extended the cone all the way up to new england. it's been suppressed quite a bit
5:16 am
now yesterday there was a lot of model disagreement showing different solution, different scenarios. one of those possibilities was having it come up the coastline. it's more likely now that that chance for it to come up the coastline after it's shut down, the reason for it, not only the models, the american model, but the euro model, not only do these two models agree, but a lot of this is coming off the carolina coastline and maybe looping around off the southeast coast. the front we talked about, it's going to be important how it's oriented weather. it's south to north. so it's positioned to grab it and pull it north, or it is more southwest to northeast. not only does it look more southwest to northeast, this comes in even flatter here. so it builds in the the high pressure behind it, and it suppresses the storm to the south here as we go through the forecast period. now, can we still get a little rain out of it? it's a possibility here late saturday into saturday night.
5:17 am
just some rain out of it. we're not expecting any strong winds or anything like that. temperatures right now in the 30s and upper 40s in the cool suburbs here and clouds off to the east of us. a couple scattered clouds may work into the forecast. but overall expecting mostly sunny skies to prevail as we go through the day. the high pressure still nosing in. so we have some beautiful weather ahead of us not only this afternoon, but tomorrow afternoon and again on friday afternoon as temperatures do go from 70 plus. so not as cool today as yesterday. 60s. mid to upper 60s inland, near 60 at the coastline. a clear and cool night tonight with temperatures running down into the mid to upper 30s in the cooler suburbs. on 7 forecast, great-looking weather thursday and friday. see how much moisture we can get in here across southern new england from matthew up along that front. could have some rain getting in here late saturday, saturday night. but i think most of sunday, monday right now looking dry.

florida as it skirts its way northbound. notice the trend, though, on day four and day five. that cone well south of new england. and there's a reason for the adjustment well to the south. the trough that's coming in with this front, it's faster and flatter, meaning it doesn't reach down and grab it and pull it up the coastline, so there's not a lot of support for this. there's a lot of support pushing it down to the south. now, maybe you see a little rain out of it. it's possible that some rain could get pulled up along that front some time late saturday or saturday nig, point as we head through the holiday weekend. guys? >> sarah: time now for fast track traffic with danielle gersh. >> danielle: thanks, sarah. good morning, everyone. we're watching an overturned truck. this is in marlborough. all lanes are blocked here on 495 northbound. and this is right at route 290. so the ramp from 290 eastbound to 495 northbound is closed because of. this all traffic being detoured on to exit 25. no word on when they're going to clear this up.

6:02 am
through the center part of the country into the east coast looks flatter. so instead of picking it up, it looks like the front will come on through, and then the high pressure kind of suppresses it and keeps it down to the south. there's a lot of good agreement with this. so i think we'll have minimal impact from it across new england. we may catch a few showers running along the front here late saturday, saturday night, but that should be about it. 49 in boston right now. we do enjoy quite a bit of sunshine the next several days. coolest at the coastline this afternoon, guys. >> sarah: we have a lot of back-up, danielle. >> danielle: all lanes are blocked in marlborough 495 northbound at route 290. and this is an overturned tractor-trailer blocking the road. and the ramp from 290 eastbound to 495 northbound is closed because of this. all traffic being detoured to exit 25. so no word on when they're going to clear this up. so probably an area you'll want to avoid this morning. your ride into town on the pike looking good. we're still watching this crash.

6:16 am
this. but chris has been tracking this from the very beginning. chris, what's the latest? >> chris: a lot of concern over the east coast of florida as we get into later this week. the latest on matthew. winds 125mph moving north. this will work through the bahamas, a major hurricane, cat 3 or cat 4, with sustained winds close to 130mph on thursday and look at how close this comes along the florida coastline now. the eye moves along the coast. or it moves inland. and you are talking about a damage up the florida coastline here as it parallels the coast. if it does move a little further off to the east, you're still expecting some nasty weather along the florida coast, but the impact wouldn't be as severe. so you hope that if there is any trend, it's a little more to the east versus off to the west. the last couple days we've seen this edge dangerously close to florida. so no question about it. these folks do have to prepare across this point across the
6:17 am
northbound, you know it's going to be limited how far north this can get. and you look at the forecast from the national hurricane center. this is considerably south of where it was yesterday. and that's good news for southern new england. it does look like we'll be limited by the effects of that hurricane. upper 30s in a lot of suburbs right now. 49 in boston. cool tart to the day. we do enjoy more sunshine and clouds throughout the day. the high pressure nosing in. so it will be a little cooler, especially at the coastline today, in the low 70s. system of the 70s you see back here. that will arrive on thursday and into friday and then the front behind some of this warmer air that comes on in will actually help prevent this from coming up the coastline. we talked about this front yesterday. and i said if it was more oriented from south the north, then it could help pull it up the coastline. and if it's going to be more southwest to northeast, chances are it will stay north south of new england.
6:18 am
this area of high pressure building in quickly. that is why this thing gets squashed to the south of us. along that front, we still may see a few showers getting in here some time late saturday and saturday night. small chance and a heavier patch of rain. i think most of the weekend will turn out just fine, as it looks as of now. it starts the cool off by early next week, by monday at 61 degrees, and the best chance of showers right now, it does look like it would be late saturday and saturda >> sarah: fast track traffic. a tractor-trailer rollover causing a lot of back-ups, danielle. >> chris: yeah, sky7 just arriving on the scene. >> danielle: all lanes are blocked on 495 northbound because of that overturned tractor-trailer. let's go to the maps. this is at route 290 on the ramp from 290 eastbound to 495 northbound is closed because of this. all traffic being detoured on to
