pittsfield and all the way towards springfield. all of this is traveling to the east very quickly. there is a little bit of a line heen behind this in central new york. it's associated with this area of low pressure. it's an upper-level low and a cold front. so all this is going to come sweeping through as we go through the afternoon so the future cast looks like this. we're going to get through that one batch of rain and then by 8:00 this line will make it into western mass. notice as it comes across the state it kind of falls apart. the best chances for any showers additionally are really i think north and west of the mass pike. really southern new hampshire, southern vermont getting in on some of this action. as we head through the afternoon, notice the clouds start to thin out just a touch. we will then see breaks of sunshine. that's going to lead to our temperatures becoming more mild through the afternoon. in terms of how much rainfall we've seen, only 2/100ths of an inch in orange. 3/100ths up in concord. that's what we're expecting. not much in the way of rain. we'll take any of the rain we
can get because as we finish the month of october out, you notice we're down over 7.5 inches for the year in boston. for the month down over two inches so we could really use that rain. so here's what it looks like for the next couple of days. hit-or-miss showers early today. we're warming up. we're drying out this week. and by thursday and friday, we could be near record high temperatures. so we're talking about very warm conditions. the other thing, you know we have that extra hour of sleep. well, that sun is going to set very early and rise even earlier this morning. in fact, it's coming at 6:17 this morning and then eventually it starts to build up and it becomes later as we get towards january and february. temperatures this morning in the upper 40's, low 50's. for today, we'll warm into the mid 50's in worcester and the low to mid 60's along the south shore, the cape. so it's a mild afternoon. it's a mostly cloudy afternoon but will be some breaks of sunshine. it does not like a washout in terms of the showers. tonight we fall back into the
40's an we are clear out. for tomorrow we do it all over again. with light winds, temperatures should warm up once again into the low 60's and upper 50's. so it's another mild day on tap. in fact, we're mild up until tuesday and wednesday. the reason why, jetstream is really lifting to the north of us. that's taking back the cold canadian air and pushing it back into canada where it belongs so we're warm tuesday. we're even warmer wednesday. by thursday and friday look at that. we're talking temperatures in the low 70's. it could be near record highs. antoinette and frank. antoinette: we like that, danielle. thank you. time right now is 5:18. stories we're following right now. frank: at least nine people are dead in an violent attack at a hotel in somalia. police say islamic extremists attacked the hotel in the capital of mogadishu. a suicide bomber detonated a car with explosives at the gate, and then gunmen on foot opened fire. al-shabab, the islamic extremist rebels waging an insurgency against somalia's weak u.n.- backed government, claimed responsibility for the attack. antoinette: tragedy in new york city this halloween: three

nashua, greenfield, concord, new hampshire. you're seeing some rain. also back through western mass in springfield now. this is very light in nature but altogether though worcester county, you will be up next for a couple of showers and there is more back towards the west over central new york. it's associated with an upper-level low and a cold front so this energy is going to swing through the morning hours meaning that we could see more chances for showers, say, around 8:00 in western mass, southern vermont. but notice by 10:00 most of these staying well to the north and beginning to fizzle out by lunchtime. and then watch the cloud cover. it begins to thin out just a touch through the afternoon. so i do think we will see some sunshine by, say, 1:00 or 2:00. it will be mostly cloudy. partly sunny type of day though. in fact, in terms of the rain we've seen about 2/100ths of an inch in orange. 3/100ths of an inch so far if concord. that is what we're expecting. not much. we will welcome any rain we will see because we're still under a
you see in that tan color down over 7.5 inches now for the year in boston. down over six inches in worcester. so we're looking for the rain. unfortunately though this week after today is very dry. but also mild. that's the big story the temperatures are going to trend on the way up. so much so that by tuesday we're in the mid 60's. believe it or not by thursday we could be in the 70's, near record highs. here is why. you can see in the last 24 hours our temperatures have already bumped up about 10-20 degrees warmer than this time yesterday. we're starting in the 40's in worcester, upper 40's boston. low 50's already on the cape and mid 50's on nantucket. so that's the mild air that is already in place. as we go through the afternoon, temperatures should warm into the low to even mid 60's along the south shore, lower 60's along the north shore southern 60's upper 50's. tonight with clear skies the winds beginning to calm down, temperatures will drop back into the 40's through the merrimack valley.
40's also in worcester. then tomorrow light winds, lots of sunshine tomorrow. temperatures pretty much in the low 60's for highs. still a mild day. we should be running around 56 degrees for this time of year. we're going to keep it all the way through the workweek. it's also very dry. we are watching a storm system that will stay well to the south of us as it gets to monday night into tuesday. as we get towards thursday do want to talk about thursday because the day where we could be close to record high temperatures. the record is actually 73 in worcester. 799 in boston set back in 1994. not necessarily we'll break the record in boston but we could get close in worcester. on friday there may be a chance of some showers coming friday night into early saturday. what that will do is turn temperatures cooler by next weekend. antoinette and frank. frank: thanks a lot, danielle. time right now is 5:48. more top stories right now. antoinette: a gunman shoots and kills three people in downtown colorado springs. police say the gunman was marching down a street carrying
several weapons when he opened fire saturday morning. officers quickly responded and got into a gunfight with the suspect. he was killed. no word this morning on a motive. frank: the navy has honored a marine killed in the line of duty. on saturday, the new destroyer, the u.s.s. rafael peralta was christened in maine. sergeant peralta was killed in 2004 when he covered a live grenade with his own body during fallujah. he was posthumously awarded the navy cross for saving the lives of his fellow service members. success for rescuers in southern california. they managed to free a humpback whale entangled in hundreds of feet of fishing line. the giant whale was first spotted on friday. rescuers spent two days cutting away about 100 feet of rope and buoys, possibly from a lobster trap. the whale still has some line in its mouth, but it didn't appear to be in distress as it swam away. antoinette: howt work and working out. two things a lot of us don't have time for or don't want to make time for. but newscenter 5's erika
timeand even have some fun. >> let's do one plate at a time. we'll squat down. erika: where most people see a kitchen, lee nor sees a home gym. the key to working out is getting your heart rate up. that doesn't only happen at a high-priced fitness center. >> i like to think of myself as someone who is deep in chase. erika: next time you put off your workout because you have so much to do at home, consider doing both at the same time. >> let's say you're waiting for something to come out of the microwave, add squats. erika: she recommends changing into gym clothes, setting up a timer and maybe create a housework play list. >> be the best dancer when you're alone in your home. erika: and the best basketball player in the basement. >> you're squatting down each, tossing articles into the washer one at a time burns more calories than cramming in one big pile. >> you want to get really exciting about it? you can add a jump to this as well. you can do like a basketball
like slam dunk into your washing machine. any time you're adding jumping, that's really getting your heart rate up. erika: whatever you do with your left side, you should always do with your right. >> raking, shoveling, i'll count to ten and i'll do ten pulls and i'm thinking about pulling using my arm muscles, using my abdominal muscles and then i make sure i switch and do ten the other way so i'm not creating muscle imbanses. erika: use the stairs between chores. >> take one extra minute and run up and do one thing and run down. do the next thing and run down. that will increase your heart rate pretty quick ee. >> at the dishwasher. >> you could make this into something that lasts one or two minutes longer by doing one thing at a time instead of stacking them all up and putting them away. the quicker you move, the more your heart rate is going to elevate. erika: she cautions if it hurts don't do it. check with your doctor or a physical therapist if you're concerned about specific exercises. erika tarantal, wcvb, newscenter 5.

"chronicle" takes us to mexico this sunday-- mexico, maine, that is. antoinette: who knew there was a place? j.c. monahan takes us there and teaches us about the town's history. jc: it's time to saddle up and head south of the border, canadian border, that is. >> i'm very proud of being from mexico. when people ask me where i'm from and i say mexico. jc: we find cheryl briggs a state rep from mexico at the town offices. >> the reason for naming the town mexico is obscure. one account has it that inspiration was derived from the valiant mexican spirit in their deeds of gaining independence from spain. jc: briggs tells us there's not
a whole lot of mexican in today's mexico. indeed, a quick look around confirms this paper mill town is no margueritaville. but briggs refers us to a colleague down the hall. >> just amazes me that no one has capitalized on the name of the town and associates that with a restaurant or something to do with mexico. jc: the town manager likes to keep a few festive touches in his office. other than that, he says the speedy gonzalez logo on the police cars is as close as mexico gets to any mexican flavor. >> it amazes me that there's not even a taco bell in town. antoinette: tomorrow on "chronicle," the colors of fall look their best in vermont where j.c. monahan takes a bike tour. plus, ferrying across the border, an animal kingdom. and apples? really? vermont's champlain valley. main streets and back roads
