5:19 pm
hayley: you can make out a very distinct eye in the last few frames of the sat right. this is over the last six hours. here are the latest data from hurricane matthew, and it has winds of 140 miles per hour. so that means that it is officially a category 4 hurricane. it's moving to the west southwest about 9 miles per hour. but it is expected to make a turn up toward the north. and that's where places like a jamaica and getting into the eastern half of cuba. and then of course it does look like it's going to possibly ride up toward the either coast of the united states -- the east coast. looks like the timing of this, by the time it gets to the bahamas would be wednesday of next week, so we still have many days ahead of us to be tracking this thing, to see exactly where it may go. we will of course keep a watch on it. in the meantime we do have some rainfall coming our way. this is good, beneficial rain,
5:20 pm
already fill in across the state that's been happening all day long. here's the band of some heavier rain showers, just getting into boston now and eventually into the southern communities of new hampshire, i'm expecting some of these lighter showers to overspread into the southern community of the state and then try to work its way northward, but there's a lot of dry air on top of us and that's going to impede that line from getting as far north as we would hope, but that will change overnight tonight. gh you're going tie football game or a fair, you need a jacket, hot cocoa or coffee with temperatures in the 50's across the state right now. overnight is going to be cool, about 40 degrees in berlin, 43 in littleton, 48 in concord. so here's the timing of the showers. this is probably what you're looking at to make all of your plans with over the weekend here. so overnight tonight, scattered showers will start to overspread across the state.
5:21 pm
and looks like most of the state will likely have some light to moderate, maybe some pockets of heavier downpours moving through. tomorrow during the morning looks wetter. in the afternoon there will be more scattered showers moving through. but really the name of the game throughout the weekend is at any time a scattered shower or downpour can move through and then there will be dry times in there. sunday does look like a dryer day where we'll have more spotty showers, maybe some drizzle. and then at other times we're drying out. so maybe sunday the better day backup plan for the rainfall that may come down. this is going to be beneficial rain. you see some places of getting upwards with of a half to full inch of rainfall. this is going to be good, we need it. temperatures in the 50's tomorrow, a cool raw day with the showers moving through. a big weekend at the deerfield fair of course and there's the big old pumpkin that they weighed yesterday, there's a look at the forecast, so some
5:22 pm
