6:16 am
we have light winds, but still it's coming out of the northeast, and later this afternoon, coming out of the east off the cool ocean water and that will keep our temperatures a touch cooler today. majorly cooler than where we were yesterday, topping out in the low 80s yesterday. today low 60s along the coastline and inland into the mid to upper 60s. it will be warmer the more south that you get, because we do have a warm front that's going to work in from the south. and eventually overnight tonight it actually gives us a good boost in you can see what comes along with those warmer temperatures, and that would be some wet weather and, of course, the clouds that i talked about. so running through the time line here, it takes until the afternoon for the clouds the really move in and thicking in, and then later on this evening, maybe a pop sprinkle, a light scattered shower. the bulk of the wet weather is arriving for friday and overnight friday enter saturday. however, tomorrow it's on again/off again scattered shower activity. so plan on having the rain gear
6:17 am
some ons and some reds coming in here. this particular forecast model. what that tells me is there is a good potential for us to see some embill welded downpours. so while i expect a widespread half an inch to an inch of rain, there is that potential to get between 2 and even 3 inches of rainfall if we can really tap enter some tropical moisture. now again, i do think that system of those showers will linger into saturday. just how long on saturday, kind of a question at this point. we have the head of the charles i think the main headline for the weekend will be the windy conditions and the cooler temperatures, and then as we get into the beginning of next week, wow, look at those highs topping out in the upper 40s. >> christa: let's check out fast track traffic. danielle gersh monitoring conditions on the roads. >> we have a couple new accidents to tell you about. let's head outside. take a look at 93 as you make your way through somerville. it's moving, but it's certainly slow out there. we're watching a accident north

6:25 am
two games. now he's starting to elevate the other guys around him. that's what we're seeing now. rob gronkowski is on fire. martellus bennett has had some really good games. pittsburgh's pass defense is one of the worst in the nfl. julian edelman hasn't elevated his game since tom brady has been back. only 28 catches on the year, still without a touchdown. i think he gets one this weekend. >> jadiann: sounds good to me. steelers down to their back-up quarterback. probably don't want to take landry jones against the pats' defense. >> trey: no. antonio brown best receiver in football. not sure he's going to be able to get him if ball. but look at the runninge. you have an inexperienced quarterback going up against a solid difference, pretty good coaching staff. d'angelo williams played last year in the season opener. he lit up the patriots. he got the bulk of the carries. not seeing that this time around. right now they'll give the bulk of the touches to d'angelo sit him down. >> jadiann: and the steelers the worst in the league. >> trey: new orleans and oakland the only two teams worse
