an ocean breeze kicking in along the coastline. overall, i do expect a ton of sunshine throughout the day. we will hold steady close to 60 in boston. 62-64, 65 away from the coastline. the future forecast looking good. the pattern is quiet with lighter winds out there. and very little rain ahead. maybe a spot shower on thursday. late day or into the evening hours. we will talk more on that ahead. >> kris: we are learning this morning that suspects were arrested outside of a wal-mart in lexington, virginia. they were found inside of a u-haul. the victim's family reacted to the news. >> they get away with murder today. i hope they don't.

when i was one year old, i was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer on my spinal chord. but i spent my whole life fighting back. so you can imagine what i thought when i saw donald trump say... "i don't know what i said, ah, i don't remember!"
"that reporter he is talking about suffers from a chronic condition that impairs movement of his arms." i don't want a president who makes fun of me. i want a president who inspires me, and that's not donald trump.
the outside corporate interests bankrolling
question two are trying to deceive you. here's the truth: every time a new charter school opens, it drains money from the existing public schools. that's 400 million just last year - according to the state's own data. which means real cuts to our kids - in arts, technology, ap classes, pre-school, bus service and more. that's why question two's opposed by the massachusetts pta and school committees all across the state.
>> kris: all right. it is 12:1. chily a decent day. >> christa: perfect fall day. minus the morning. the rest of the day is phenomenal. >> chris: we subtracted the wind we had yesterday, too. overall, this is fantastic. the sunshine warmed us up. look at some lows this morning. 26 in norwood. 31 in taunton. we were in the 40's in boston. 44 in boston. no frost or freeze in the city. a cry from that. it was the coolest day since mid-may.
this chilly outside. this was the first time below freezing this fall. look at the bounceback, though. this is the characteristic of the dry air mass. you get these dry air masses. like, hardly any humidity. you watch temperatures tumble at night. but warm up quickly in the day. we have gone from 20's and 30's to near 60 degrees. there is hardly sky. from southern new england to northern new england. up across southern canada. that will be the case for the most part through the rest of the day. now, a couple of patches of clouds late overnight tonight. early tomorrow morning. otherwise, mostly sunny again on wednesday. do expect some more clouds to work on in late wednesday night. into thursday. i think we will start off thursday with clouds and patchy drizzling. mid to late afternoon, part little sunny. toward the end of the day, there could be a brief passing
you are in the upper 60's to near 70 thursday afternoon. back into the upper 50's to near 60 on friday with the breeze. we will also have clearing skies once again. as high pressure works. in that is going to be the theme here as we go through the next several days. we will be high pressure dominating the weather. forecasting a hurricane off-shore. this one way, way off-shore. going to come close to we are mu damplt right now it is a tropical storm. for us, bottom line, limited rain ahead. gusty breeze on friday. a bright dry weekend ahead of us. here is nicole. a tropicst forecast to become a hurricane. likely will do so. very close to bermuda. as we get into thursday. then it continues to race off to the north and to the east. 60-65 this afternoon. coolest along the coastline with sunshine. not quite as cold tonight. i think some of the cooler suburbs, mid-0'ses if f mid-30's and upper 20's. then tomorrow, any patchy clouds we have in the morning will shake off. mostly sunny in the afternoon. there is the forecast.
notice not too many rain-drops out there. just a spot shower late on thursday. >> christa: all right, thank you. hurricane math yum's effects are still being felt in north carolina this week. in fact, most of the city of lumberton is underwater. >> kris: such a serious situation. hurricane matthew caused rivers there to burst their banks. as the town of lumberton filled with water, desperate neighbors fled any way they could. 1,500 neepded national guard, and fema have all arrived. >> there is a significant problem here without a doubt. >> reporter: thousands of homes may be swamped. and more in danger. overnight evacuation centers were brimming. with no count of the missing, there is little sign of relief. the flood waters are rising and the death toll from matthew could also climb.
by the rate that the water came up. and the force of the water. the moving water is relentless. >> reporter: this morning, lumberton has been declared a disaster. but officials warn it may not be the last place to flood. many rivers are still rising and a string of communities could be next. >> everything is gone. >> kris: a tough situation for them. lumberton is without power and basic utilities right now. it could be days, even weeks until that is restored. >> christa: still ahead, gloucester's police chief talking about the allegations of misconduct and his pending retirement. >> kris: an elementary student winning a class election with winning a class election with the promise to special interests that oppose question 2 claim district schools lose money to charter schools. that's "absurd," says the boston herald. "outright lies," reports the lowell sun. charter schools "don't siphon off state dollars"
in new hampshire, maggie hassan cut taxes for small businesses, protected education... created jobs. in

chief campanello should no longer be employed by the city of gloucester. three days later... >> i'm taking this opportunity to announce my retirement. >> reporter:... the city agreed to let him retire. >> do you think you were treated fairly? >> it's been a trying few weeks. report t public drama started weeks ago when leonard campanello was put on paid leave while the city looked into allegations of misconduct. >> as a result of these complaints, the city began an investigation of all allegations. ep campanello misled investigators about the whereabouts of his city-issued cell phone and deleted evidence in the form of text messages he exchanged with at least one of the women. but the city has now closed that investigation, saying campanello's initial termination had nothing to do with his personal relationships, but rather, with his alleged destruction of evidence. and while the essex county district attorney's office says it's still reviewing the
criminal. >> we haven't been informed of anything going on with the district attorney's office. we have no among the of. that and i would be surprised if there was any type of action taken by the district attorney's office. last year, campanello was thrust into the national spotlight after starting the angel initiative. it is a program that advocates treatment over arrest for people struggling with addiction. the gloucester police became the first department in the country to adopt that policy.ca it is a cause campanello says he is still passionate about. >> i am going to continue to push very hard for reform and addiction recovery. and how the system treats people with addiction as a moral, ethical failing versus as a disease. >> reporter: campanello has always believed in not judging people. he says he has nothing but respect for the members of the gloucester police. >> i think like any place you
i'm going to miss terribly. then there are people i'm not going to miss at all. and so overall, the experience i had in gloucester, especially with the police department and the citizens of gloucester was fantastic. in the control room, cheryl fiandaca. >> kris: next up at noon, going solo: the duchess of cambridge hanging out on her first forei >> christa: a dorchester may the ty raising her voice on
