5:14 am
in the mountains, so you can go skiing. >> bri: all of my friends back home in boise were posting pictures of our ski resorts getting snow, and we're in for summer to make a comeback here. warm week ahead. near 80 for the next couple days. that really depends on your location. then late-week showers. much-needed rainfall on the way. we can hope so. fingers crossed that it's a good soaking thursday into friday. and drying out for the weekend. good timing there. temperature trend putting it in perspective for us. normal high for this time of nearing 80 both tuesday and wednesday. dropping back down for a time on thursday, but then getting another boost as we wrap up the work week. we have wet weather out there to start this morning and even some embedded downpours laying down some quick rain. you can see south shore getting it right now, scituate even some minor coastal flooding due to the high tide and the high astronomically high tides right now. and also near norwood, bridgewater, anington right now
5:15 am
up around route 2, west of 495, laying down some quick rain, not the good soaking that we desperately need, but just over one-tenth of an inch in boston right now. almost up to one-third of an inch in norwood. we'll take it. every drop we can get, especially when the timing of the wet weather is like it is today. it's going to move out of here by about 7:00 a.m. here's the bigger picture for us. low pressure system well off to our northwest. but we've got this warm front that will eventually move through the question is: how fast does that happen? that really sets the stage for the entire day ahead of us. we will eventually see clearing. it does become breezy. how fast can that southwest breeze bring us warmer temperatures. forecast models for this morning are saying not so fast, especially after the merrimack valley, southern new hampshire. you may not actually see those temperatures reach near 80 degrees. you see boston topping out at 73 here. 80 degrees in norwood where we
5:16 am
quickly. so i'm going with a forecast high for boston, 75 today. that's pretty far from the record for today of 82. worcester coming close to 80 degrees, but not so close to that record of 85. dew points right now running right around 60 degrees. so there is some mugginess out there. the frizz factor, it's actually factor today. so this is another reason why it feels more like summer than like fall. there is a bit of mugginess out there. but i put together the forecast for you, if you're hitting the links today. i know someone who it. it is a good day for it tomorrow, as well. partly cloudy overnight tonight. it stays breezy and mild. 61 to 66. as cool as it gets overnight. and into tomorrow, mostly sunny and it's warm again for us. so running through the time line here, sort of series of fronts that we get as we move throughout this week. and by thursday evening, showers working into the picture, does this front make it through to actually boost those temperatures up again? that's another question that we have to answer. current foliage looking
5:17 am
england. so enjoy it. send those pictures to us. we'd love to see them. a look at my 7 on 7 forecast, again, exact timing and how much ran we're expecting thursday, friday, still some details we need the nail down. >> christa: sounds good, bri. thank you. now to a page owned to help reopen a g.o.p. building in north carolina that was firebombed. the page exceeded its goal in $10,000 raised in just officials are now trying to figure out who threw a bottle fill with flammable liquid into this office and spray painted a threatening message on the side of the building. >> it's an important election but it isn't so important that we have to take lives and try to purpose down property or hurt other people. >> christa: in the meantime, g.o.p. officials working at the office have set up folding chairs and tables outside and continue to work on the campaign. >> sarah: officers in california say they shot a man after he attempted to attack them inside a starbucks.

5:23 am
>> bri: good morning. starting off with wet weather, but it won't last for much longer. by it's proved on out of here. eventually this warm front will track northeast. temperatures getting into this afternoon. so clearing out, i think slowly for northeastern massachusetts, we're thinking merrimack valley, probably not warming up as quickly as southeastern mass, but 74 to 81 for highs this afternoon and becoming a little bit breezy, as well. >> christa: bri, thank you.

5:26 am
>> bri: i'm honestly shocked because i definitely did not do it better, but i solicited some help from my mother and her quilting buddies. so next week i am having a baby doll challenge, we should clarify. i'm going one on one with celtics' star jae crowder for a baby boot camp challenge. we'll see who leaves crying for their mommy, but to be honest, this is the most adorable two minutes of your week next week. >> sarah: i can't wait. oh, my g how cute. >> christa: all right. bri. we'll see "who did it better?" coming up next monday. and coming up next at 5:30, michael phelps trading his bathing suit for rubbing shoes in boston. why he's leading a morning run on the esplanade. >> sarah: plus hold on. on hold, rather. what a federal judge wants to know before deciding whether sal dimasi should be granted compassionate release from prison. >> christa: and a pregnant woman and two young children are
