8:11 am
antoinette: good morning. welcome back. after last year's painful and historic winter, getting ready this year is a big priority for a lot of people. and this morning we're putting the focus on your home. where to start? newscenter 5's emily riemer had a local handyman show us the spots to check now. larry: first of all, the leaves are on the ground. get them out of the gutters. emily: and while you're up there, check for any loose shingles or damage to the roof. larry luddecke says you also want to make sure your attic is properly vented. larry: if the attic is cool, you'll have less ice dams because the heat of the house isn't melting the bottom of the snow. emily: many people learned about those ice dams the hard way last
8:12 am
often. consider buying a roof rake now before they sell out, and use it often once the snow starts. larry: as soon as you can. the way the snow came last year, every other day, it would be great if you could use it in between snows. emily: next, check all your windows. make sure the storm windows are down and the upper screen is locked. larry: it's not about security. it's about making the window nice and tight. emily: keep out the cold? larry: keep out the cold, bingo. emily: if you use your fireplace often, consider getting it professionally cleaned before that first fire. and also have a pro come check your heating system. maintenance now could save you hundreds later. antoinette: that was emily riemer reporting. she also leaed this is also a great time to check all your smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors. test them, vacuum out any dust, and replace the batteries as needed. frank: great advice. but i'm hoping we don't need a roof rake or a snow blower.
8:13 am
antoinette: sorry we had to remind about winter this morning. danielle: we're on the way up. the warming trend is on the way. temperatures today starting today in the 60's. by the end of the week, the 70's. now it does come with a little bit of rain today. but we will take that because we could really use the rain. so i do have a medium chance of some rain. we've already seen some this morning in some locations. that's really the trend as we go through the morning hours so we have hit-or-miss spot showers out there on radar. some of them moving through parts of southern new hampshire. you saw some earlier this morning too. others through worcester county. some even collecting here along the south shore, moving towards the cape and the islands. some of this is actually finally making it to the ground. some of this has not yet made it to the ground as it's raining in the upper atmosphere, evaporating because we have such dry air out ahead of this. it's all associated with an area of low pressure as well as this upper-level low. it's pin wheeling this moisture at us. so we are going to keep the clouds in the forecast and the
8:14 am
showers at least through the morning hours. once we get towards lunchtime, watch this future cast. you'll see what will happen. through. this might be a little overdone, i think. but we will have hit-or-miss showers through about lunchtime. at. the skies are beginning to break apart a little bit in terms of the cloud cover. we will call it mostly cloudy becoming partly sunny by afternoon. now through the afternoon, there may be one or two showers, but that is mainly up through southern new hampshire as well as southern vermont. other than that, i think everybody else is dry. so feel free to plan to do anything you were going to do outside. you can see rainfall amounts have not been that impressive. that's the trend through the morning hours and into the afternoon. only picking up 2/100ths of an inch of rain in orange. we could really use the rain. you notice most of this area in the tan color under a moderate drought. boston down over 7.5 inches now for the year. worcester down over six inches
8:15 am
so we are looking for the rain but a dry forecast is in store as we head through the workweek. we're also warming up. by thursday and friday, we could be near record warmth. i know everybody is looking forward to that. temperatures today only going to warm up into the upper 50's, low 60's because i think we're going to hold on to the clouds a little bit longer today. tonight though the skies are going to clear out. the winds calm down just a touch. temperatures through the merrimack valley in the low 40's. upper 40's boston. low 50's on the cape and the islands. and then tomorrow a lot of sunshine. it's a dry forecast and temperatures once again in the upper 50's and lower 60's for highs. we're going to continue to warm up as we head towards tuesday and wednesday. the big trend with this is basically the jetstream. it is really pushing and lifting to the north allowing for the mild conditions so we're mild on wednesday with high temperatures in the upper 60's.
8:16 am
friday, notice we rebound even more, into the lower 70's. our record high temperatures could be in contention on thursday as we have a record high of 73 in worcester and 79 in boston. and then there's a chance for some showers on friday. that will pull temperatures back down over the weekend. hey, enjoy the warm week. frank and antoinette. antoinette: 70's, danielle, thank you. time right now is 8:17. stories we're following right now. frank: at least nine people are dead in an violent attack at a 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 u.n.-backed government, claimed responsibility for the attack. antoinette: tragedy in new york city this halloween. three people were killed when an out-of-control car slammed into a group of trick-or-treaters. one of the victims was a ten-year-old girl. several people were also hurt

danielle: good morning and welcome back. i'm meteorologist danielle vollmar. this morning i'm tracking a couple of hit-or-miss showers. they will be moving out of here pretty quickly.
8:24 am
once they do, we should see some breaks of sunshine. we really do need the rain though even though we're only picking up maybe 1/100th of an inch of rain in most locations because for the month of october we were down over two inches of rain. for the year we're down over 7.5 inches of rain. we just funnished out the month pretty warm. as we go through the next couple of days temperatures really warm up. by tuesday mid 60's. frank. frank: thanks a lot, danielle. thousands celebrated halloween in salem this weekend. it is the witch city's signature holiday. children and adults took part in the fun. of course, everyone was in costume. >> we're going ape. this is salem, the halloween capital of the world. reporter: what are you dressed up as this year? >> a vampire. reporter: are you a scary vampire or a nice vampire. >> a nice and scary vampire. >> everyone in costume having fun. antoinette: of course, first responders were in on the action making sure everyone had a good but safe time. police set up towers to stay

8:26 am
google, asking the federal aviation administration for permission to test drones for deliveries and other business purposes. in the eyes of many drone hobbyists and entrepreneurs, the sky's the limit when it comes to the use of drones from aerial photography to drone racing, from the delivery of emergency supplies to the delivery of that "must have right now" consumer product. there is much potential for fun and efficiency. there are also threats to safety and privacy. according to the u.s. department of transportation, the f.a.a. receives daily reports of potentially unsafe drone operations. pilot sightings of drones doubled between 2014 and 2015. other incidents include a drone crashing at the u.s. open and, most recently, a drone carrying drugs and hacksaw blades crashing into an oklahoma prison. so last week's announcement by the u.s. department of transportation and the f.a.a. to establish a drone registration process seems like a logical and much-needed next step. the wild west days of drone use are quickly coming to an end.
8:27 am
when the government clearly outlines acceptable guidelines for drone use, innovators will finally have a defined framework from which to push drone technology to new heights. hand-crafted...layer by layer. r the new macchiato from dunkin' donuts. experience the flavor of fall with a new hot or iced pumpkin macchiato. hey mom, i could use some basil. oh, sure thing, sweetie. r life is eating out of a flower pot. wait where' s the? right. it' s being a food paparazzi. rhoney, your rump roast just broke the internet. as it should. and a takeout romantic. dessert! happy anniversary. life is mucho, and grande. life is eating, laughing, loving

8:29 am
month of november with some warm weather. we may even hit record highs by the end of the week. antoinette: a small town mourning a young life lost. the fatal crash that killed a high school senior. frank: donald trump rallying for reform. the plan he's proposing to overhaul the department of veteran affairs. >> you're watching wcvb, boston's news leader. good morning! this is newscenter 5's "eyeopener." frank: good morning. hope you had a great halloween. it's actually 8:1. it's really 8:31. i had daylight saving problems myself. it is 8:31. i'm frank holland. antoinette: and i'm antoinette antonio along with danielle vollmar. we woke up on time today. we had a conversation via text last night. if i set my alarm at, will it go off? we were all here on time. danielle: i got up an hour early because i was used to my time. anyway, let's talk about what is happening this morning weatherwise because i know everyone wants to know. you don't need to know about my sleep schedule. let's talk about those showers. there's been a couple of them all morning long. it's really hit or miss. not everyone has woken up to showers. everyone has woken up though to a lot of clouds out there. and milder temperatures.
8:30 am
showers now inside of the city of worcester. southbridge seeing some too. leominster. down along the south shore moving towards the cape now, hyannis getting in on a couple of showers. the vineyard too. all of this is is shifting to the east. it's associated with an upper-level low disturbance. right now that's spreading this energy towards us. notice the bulk of it is now lifting up towards the north and east. so it's mainly going to be northern new england later today that continues to see the threat for showers. as for boston, we are socked in with the clouds right now. but as antoinette mentioned, that sunrise coming up really early this morning. 50 degrees. the winds are out of the south at about nine. and you're going to feel those winds out of the south and west at about 10-15 through the afternoon. so we are going to leave showers in the forecast through about lunchtime or so. and temperaturewise through the afternoon with some breaks of sun should warm up into the lower 60's and even a few mid
8:31 am
live. concord. upper 50's nashua. 60 in boston. low to mid 60's though along the islands. it is a mostly cloudy day but dry conditions are coming as well as a major warm-up. so we'll talk about when we could see the 70's in the antoinette? antoinette: danielle, thank you. we have breaking news on the cape right now. north falmouth. as you can see the fire destroyed the fishing boat named "good grief." the flames sparked about 5:30 this morning. firefighters used foam to keep the fire from spreading. no one was hurt. a cause is under investigation. frank: flames spark inside a townhouse complex in danvers overnight. you can see the fire shooting through the roof. firefighters worked to put out the fire quickly. everyone made it out safely, but two dogs are unaccounted for right now. damage is extensive. antoinette: right now navy searchers say they have located the wreckage of the
8:32 am
missing cargo ship "el faro." the teams made the discovery near the ship's last known location. 33 crewmembers were on board when it sank last month; three with ties to massachusetts. frank: a group associated with isis is claiming responsibility for the downing of a russian airliner in egypt. all 224 people on board were killed. russian investigators say the isis claims are not credible, but the cause of that crash is not known. several airlines have decided to stop using that airspace until more is known. antoinette: the search is on for the suspects who stole three puppies from a kennel in holliston. it happened friday night at the owner is seeking the public's help asking people to keep an eye out on sites like craigslist for the pups. shock and sadness in a small massachusetts town. a high school senior full of promise killed in a car crash. 17-year-old madeline lamson of medway was a daughter, an athlete, and a friend. frank: as reid lamberty reports,
8:33 am
single-car crash. reid: roadside sorrow melts into tears as classmates of a teenager killed here last night leave behind flowers at the scarred base of this tree. madeline lamson was alone when the car she was driving violently smashed into the tree just before midnight. >> there was a big, big boom. i looked out the window. there was a big fire over there. reid: witnesses tried to pull the 17-year-old from her car, but the resulting fire pushed them back. just a few miles away, a steady stream of students flowed in and out of medway high school speaking with grief counselors. school principal tim mccarron says in this building of about 800 students, maddie stood out. principal: one thing maddie was excellent at was making individuals feel good, laugh, share in her joy. we need to find that as we move together. reid: maddie was a three-sport student athlete, captain of both the field hockey and hockey teams. the school spent the morning meeting with her field hockey teammates who were preparing for next week's state tournament

8:35 am
johnny cole: the sign was here in front of our fence. that sign in the public right of way. an attorney representing an anonymous concord resident contacted the town to complain matter" sign here violated the town by-laws. chris whelan, town manager: in concord, of course, we value free speech. it's very important to us, but we also want to make sure our protected. todd cole: i think they were upset about the message and the sign. frank: town manager chris whelan says his office has no position chris whelan: we're trying to be fair and completely content neutral. frank: but the town has strict laws on signs in the public right of way. political or election signs can only remain for 14 days. contractor signs must go after the work is completed. for-sale signs permitted until the property is sold. chris whelan: the by-law makes very clear that a sign in the public right of way has restrictions on it. five feet away on private property, there would be no restrictions at all. frank: the coles moved their sign, but the educators hope people still pay attention for the sake of our country and their kids. johnny cole: it is very personal for us for sure. todd cole: we're trying to send

9:05 am
prosecutors had claimed the 19-year-old took part in a hazing ritual back in 2013 while at the camp in the berkshires. mondol denied the accusations. his lawsuit against the city alleges several leaders, including mayor joe curtatone, engaged in a witch hunt to have him charged. he's seeking $1 million. antoinette: new concerns this morning about the rapid growth of casino gambling he in the northeast. the hollywood casino in bangor, maine, got off to a great start but is now demanding a property tax break now that business has slowed down. casino observers here in massachusetts tell "the globe" they expect a similar situation could happen here if the plainridge park casino continues to see a decline in its revenue. right now, plainridge pays about $1.5 million a year in local property taxes and has not asked for a tax reduction. frank: massachusetts is getting two new courts specifically aimed at helping military veterans in legal trouble. veterans treatment courts will start hearing cases in holyoke and lawrence this week. the courts only deal with

9:08 am
antoinette: i know you don't want to see all of this just yet but after last year's painful and historic winter, getting ready this year is a big priority for a lot of people. and this morning we're putting the focus on your home. where to start? newscenter 5's emily riemer had a local handyman show us the spots to check now. larry: first of all, the leaves are on the ground.
9:09 am
there, check for any loose shingles or damage to the roof. larry luddecke says you also want to make sure your attic is properly vented. larry: if the attic is cool, you'll have less ice dams because the heat of the house isn't melting the bottom of the snow. emily: many people learned about those ice dams the hard way last winter with so much snow, so often. consider buying a roof rake now before they sell out, and use it often once the snow starts. larry: as soon as you can. the way the snow came last year, every other day, it would be great if you could use it in between snows. emily: next, check all your windows. make sure the storm windows are down and the upper screen is locked. larry: it's not about security. it's about making the window nice and tight. emily: keep out the cold? larry: keep out the cold, bingo. emily: if you use your fireplace often, consider getting it professionally cleaned before that first fire. and also have a pro come check your heating system. maintenance now could save you hundreds later. antoinette: that was emily riemer reporting. she also learned this is also a
9:10 am
monoxide detectors. test them, vacuum out any dust, and replace the batteries as needed. this is a great time because of the time change. danielle: replace those batteries. frank: sorry to interrupt. but recommending roof rakes or snow blowers like that. danielle: we're not talking about snow in the forecast. we're talking about warm temperatures which we will like. how about near record highs by thursday and friday? we will take that. the other thing we do have with us is some rain today. and there is a medium chance of some rain through the morning hours. it should be dwindling by afternoon though. you can see why. local live radar is picking up a couple of showers here moving through parts of metro west now down along the cape, too, you're seeing some of these. very light in nature. ground. may be raining in the upper atmosphere and then evaporating as it hits the dryer air.
9:11 am
a couple showers along the cape moving towards nantucket. it's all due to this upper-level low disturbance that is really bringing in heavier rain up through northern new england. as we go through the day today, it's a cloudy start out there. it's kind of a cool start too. but we will see she's showers start to dissipate. we should even see breaks of sun. the future cast here i think is is a little overdone in terms of the moisture. but there could be one or two showers, i think, through about lunchtime. then after that notice we start to see breaks in the cloud deck so it will become mostly cloudy and even partly sunny by afternoon. now through the afternoon hours, we can't rule out one or two showers up through southern vermont, southern new hampshire. but i really think that's the extent of it. other than that, we should see more sunshine today. that's going to warm these temperatures up. in terms of how much rain we're seeing, not really much. about 2/100ths of an inch in orange. 3/100ths of an inch of rain in concord. not much rain. we really do need the rain. unfortunately not getting much today.
9:12 am
as you can see this area in tan here, this is actually a moderate drought. we are down 7.5 inches now for boston for the year down over 6 inches in worcester for the year in terms of rainfall. so we're looking for the rain. now. be wrapping up. we're warming up and dry this week. we'll be near record warmth thursday and friday. temperatures in the 70's. wow! that's nice for november. today. low 60's in boston. mid 60's maybe along the south shore and the cape. and then tonight with clear skies, allowing those temperatures to drop back into the 40's through the merrimack valley. 44 in worcester. upper 40's in boston. and then tomorrow we'll see full sunshine. it's a dry forecast but with light winds we could even have winds coming off the water. that's going to keep temperatures in boston at least near 60 degrees. but a lot of areas may see the low to even mid 60's tomorrow. so we're sunny. we're mild.
9:13 am
we have tons of sunshine through about midweek. i do want to talk about thursday because thursday is when we get really close to these record high temperatures. you can see the record high in worcester is actually 7 3w set back in 1994. the record high in boston is 79. i think it will be hard to break boston's record. worcester could be pretty close to that. friday we're still warm in the 70's but there is a chance for some showers. those showers are a cold front so it will actually cool temperatures back over the weekend into the 60's but this week it's really warm. so enjoy the sunshine and the warmth. antoinette and frank. antoinette: we will, danielle. thank you. time now is 9:18. 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 u.n.-backed government, claimed responsibility for the attack. antoinette: tragedy in new york

9:35 am
home. the cole family taking a stand. johnny cole: both our kids are kids of color. an african-american daughter and a latino son. they obviously matter a whole lot to us. we just want to bring awareness. frank: this demonstration getting a positive response, but not everyone so supportive. johnny cole: the sign was here in front of our fence. frank: the coles originally put that sign in the public right of way. an attorney representing an anonymous concord resident contacted the town to complain that having that "black lives matter" sign here violated the town by-laws. chris whelan, town manager: in concord, of course, we value free speech. it's very important to us, but we also want to make sure our historic and rural character is todd cole: i think they were upset about the message and the sign. frank: town manager chris whelan says his office has no position on the message. chris whelan: we're trying to be fair and completely content neutral. frank: but the town has strict laws on signs in the public right of way. political or election signs can only remain for 14 days. contractor signs must go after the work is completed. for-sale signs permitted until the property is sold. chris whelan: the by-law makes very clear that a sign in the public right of way has restrictions on it.
9:36 am
five feet away on private property, there would be no restrictions at all. frank: the coles moved their sign, but the educators hope people still pay attention for the sake of our country and their kids. johnny cole: it is very personal for us for sure. todd cole: we're trying to send a message that it's important for our family and that we would love discussions to be had around the dinner table every night about these matters. >> now your storm team 5 forecast with meterologist danielle vollmar. danielle: it's a cloudy start over boston. you can see it right here. lots of clouds. it's all associated with some showers. i do want to show you what is going on currently. i want to show you that the rain totals down over 7.5 inches for the year. the month of october, we're down over two inches so we really do need that rain. and, in fact, we are going to see those showers continue as we go through the day. i want to show you this on the future cast if i can. these showers we've been seeing on the south shore, the cape and
9:37 am
off shore by lunchtime. and thereafter, we should see some breaks in the cloud deck. close breaks in the cloud deck will allow for some sunshine. that sunshine should hopefully warm up the atmosphere. one area i'm concerned with is up through southern new hampshire and southern vermont where you could see one or two showers through the afternoon but other than that, everybody else is beginning to dry out. again as i said before, we really do need the rain. temperatures are on the way up. yesterday's high was 52 degrees. today we're going for a high temperature of 61. tomorrow is 62 and by tuesday, 65 degrees. our average high temperature for this time of year should be around 56 degrees. so we will take the warmer temperatures. as you look over boston, those clouds are there. it's 5 degrees. the winds are out of the south of southeast at about 8 miles an hour. and you're going to notice those winds today. they're going to shift from the south to the south and west at about 10-15 miles an hour through the afternoon.
9:38 am
highs in worcester. upper 50's through nashua. low 60's in boston. and low to mid 60's along the south shore, the cape and the islands. and again we're looking at mostly cloudy skies. now tonight the skies begin to clear out. with clear skies and the winds turn to go the west and starting to calm down, temperatures are going to drop into the low 40's through the merrimack valley. mid 40's in worcester. upper 40's in boston and low 50's on the cape and the islands. and then tomorrow with a lot more sunshine, dry conditions, light winds, temperatures start to warm into the upper 50's in worcester. upper 50's boston. low 60's lawrence. and low to mid 60's along the south shore, the cape and the islands. next seven days we are dry. we are sunny. and temperatures continue to climb. so 62 for your monday. 65 degrees on tuesday. and by midweek, we're in the upper 60's. now thursday is the day i'm watching very carefully.
9:39 am
we could be near record high temperatures. the high temperature in boston is actually 79. the record high temperature in worcester is 73 degrees. we're going to get very close. may not break it. but be close enough. then on friday, more clouds into the forecast. there there is a chance for some showers friday afternoon into early saturday. and behind that, we cool temperatures back into the 60's, but this week is warm. so enjoy it. antoinette and frank. frank: thanks a lot, danielle. this week's high 5 takes us to watertown. antoinette: mike lynch hockey team who has redefined dynasty and perfection all the while doing it with class and dignity. mike: when you live in celebrations cross gender and age groups. so it was when the field hockey team broke the national record on october 21. it was a reason for a very large family to share the joyous occasion together. the 2015 team is another squad in an assembly line of

9:41 am
before that. >> 10, 15 years maybe. mike: for three decades watertown field hockey has been the fabric of so many young women who are still tethered to the program throughout their professional lives as well as motherhood. do you think the streak will be going on when she gets here? >> i hope so. i think so. you know, with a different name on her back. mike: when you wear that uniform, you're family forever. we salute the watertown field hockey program past, present, and future as this week's-- >> high 5.

9:48 am
great day. >> this is an editorial by wcvb-tv channel 5 president and general manager bill fine. bill fine: there have been a number of news reports on the rapidly growing use of unmanned aircraft systems or drones here in the united states. drone use is at an all-time high with industry estimates of 500,000 drones flying in u.s. airspace for both recreation and limited commercial use. walmart just joined amazon and google, asking the federal aviation administration for permission to test drones for deliveries and other business purposes. in the eyes of many drone hobbyists and entrepreneurs, the sky's the limit when it comes to the use of drones from aerial photography to drone racing, from the delivery of emergency supplies to the delivery of that "must have right now" consumer product. there is much potential for fun and efficiency. there are also threats to safety and privacy. according to the u.s. department of transportation, the f.a.a.
9:49 am
operations. pilot sightings of drones doubled between 2014 and 2015. other incidents include a drone crashing at the u.s. open and, most recently, a drone carrying drugs and hacksaw blades crashing into an oklahoma prison. so last week's announcement by the u.s. department of transportation and the f.a.a. to establish a drone registration process seems like a logical and much-needed next step. the wild west days of drone use are quickly coming to an end. when the government clearly outlines acceptable guidelines for drone use, innovators will finally have a defined framework from which to push drone
