5:13 am
when i listen to families across new hampshire, all i hear is that washington is locked into a system where the special interests come before people. where drug company profits come before affordable medicine, the koch brothers and big oil come before clean energy, and powerful corporations beat out entrepreneurs looking to grow their small businesses. i'm maggie hassan. washington won't change overnight. but sending a new senator who puts your priorities ahead of special interests can make a difference.
5:14 am
5:15 am
you, but it was spooky driving into work. it was so foggy out. >> christa: got you into the halloween spirit. slow going morning out there, so take some time. >> bri: not only with the fog, but keep in mind, with the leaves on the ground, wet leaves can make the roads very, very slick. pay attention. be cautious, go slow, pack your patience. a few showers today. a windy weekend ahead. that's the big headline for saturday enter sunday. boy, it gets chilly next week, not to mention we this keep some of that breeze and the wind around with us enter the gi which will make conditions feel much more like fall than it did feel like summer a couple days ago. we have a few light, spotty showers. just drizzle and mist out there at this point. not going to pinpoint exactly where that's happening because it will move out and something new will move in, but really it's a lot of soup that you can expect heading out the door this morning. you see the fog that's all across the board for us reducing visibility to underneath a mile in most locations.
5:16 am
so something to pay attention to, maybe just tack on a few extra minutes the that morning commute. look how mild our temperatures are to start this morning. we're in the mid-50s outside of boston. 61 inside of the metro area. 65 in plymouth. 66 in new bedford? what's going on? a warm from the moves through last night and boosts those temperatures up. despite the fact our temperatures are mild today, i think into the low 70s for some, it could be an indoor recess as we get into the school that's around for us. heaviest rainfall is still off to our west and our north west. this is our system. it boosted that warm front through overnight last night. that's why our temperatures didn't drop but rather they rose through the night. and eventually we'll see some of that heavier rainfall working into the picture for us. so running through the time line, we keep the cloud cover around, though there could be times we get some peeks of sunshine. if we do, we'll warm the temperatures up enter the mid-70s for some locations. that's not out of the question.
5:17 am
it is very tropical. dew points are up, as well. here we go with yellows and ons showing up this afternoon on this forecast model, which would indicate some heavier rainfall and even some embill welded -- embedded downpours. the other thing we can't rule out, a rumble of thunder and an isolated strong storm. jeremy reiner will be here starting at 4:00. make sure you tune in for that. that line of heavier rainfall could shift further to the east or further to the west. so to really this evening and through the overnight hours, it's tough to call. so how much rainfall is on the way? i think we can still go with what i was saying yesterday. a half an inch to an inch widespread, but there could be some areas that exceed those amounts. they get closer to between 2 to 3 inches of rainfall. that will be very isolated. for the weekend, i think some showers linger enter saturday morning, but then it becomes all about the gusty wind and we keep the wind around with us to start
5:18 am
temperatures tuesday, wednesday, topping out in the upper 40s, fall is certainly here. >> sarah: it's time now for our first class act of the season. what a classic kid we have today. >> christa: this group went the extra mile, quite literally, and through all their hard work, they helped get people in need enter some brand-new housing. yes, they are this morning's first class act of the season. what does building a house in length of cape cod have to do with one another? answer: it's all part of the efforts of the senior class at providence christian academy in west peabody, and they're our class act. >> it was more challenging than i thought it would be. i was like, oh, my goodness, it's going to be really hard. >> christa: these 11 seniors made it their mission to raise money for habitat for humanity, which builds houses for the poor. they challenged themselves.

5:20 am
about these people who need these affordable homes. >> not only was it a culmination of the money, but the effort we put in. >> christa: doing good work, and i love the fact they got to bond during that whole thing, as well. this is the first big service project at that particular academy. there will be more. so the class of 2017, they've got the bar set pretty high for a lot of other people to follow that. >> sarah: inspirational kids, definitely. if you know between sixth and 12th grade doing something outstanding in school, sports or in their community, it can be one student or a group of students, please nominate them online at whdh.com. >> christa: coming up next, the boston bruins win a nail-biter. see how they were able to come from behind to get the victory on opening night at the garden. >> sarah: a retail giant about to get a little more posh. victoria beckham expanding her
