>> we go to st. joseph's elementary school in needham. we'd just like to say good morning, "eyeopener." randy: good morning. why are these kids so excited? they got to learn about weather from cindy, of course. cindy: the guys were so well behaved. they were a great group. i had the pleasure of going out a smart bunch. had a good time. i think i generally had more fun than they did. emily: we'd love to see your wake-up call. get everyone together and record your own eyeopener wake-up call. just go to the front page of and upload it in the u-local section of our website. cindy: we've got rain coming in. the evening commute will have a little bit of impact. tomorrow morning's commute not going to be so nice. snawl dry roads this morning. emily: get out there now. the rain will hold off until the evening hours. heaviest comes overnight into tomorrow morning. that's why the morning commute on wednesday, of course, it is
5:12 am
is veterans day, is going to be impacted. we're talking about a half an inch to an inch of rain which is great. heaviest amounts likely in southeastern massachusetts. here is the rain here to our south. notice how far back to the west it goes. this is all lifting north ward in our direction. for the moment, it's running into high pressure. so all we've managed here is to bring in some clouds. these will be thickening up through the morning hours. temperatures are running in the mid 40's boston, lower 40's on the cape. some pockets of 30's in between. norwood one of the cooler spots at 34. north of boston, werfel at 41 but lots of 30's showing up in northern worcester county and into southern new hampshire. big bubble of high pressure again slowing everything down. so it's going to take some time this morning before we start to see things change. so clouds will be thickening up here after a little bit of filtered sunshine this morning. and before those winds turn in from the water, i think we'll manage temperatures coming up into the mid and upper 50's, closer to 60 by this afternoon down on cape cod. let's time things out for you. this is your lunch hour today. notice southern new hampshire, filtered sunshine.
5:13 am
as you get down toward the south coast and the cape here we're seeing a few showers. the steadier rain will be creeping north ward. think along and south of the pike we're start to go get into the wet weather. overnight that rain will be filling in. the winds pick up. temperatures mostly in the 40's overnight. your veterans day tomorrow is going to start very wet. it's a windy and raw day with temperatures either side of 50 degrees so here you see that rain filling in overnight. by tomorrow morning, look at this. the area. perhaps some heavier downpours as well. that rain is going to stay fairly persistent through about lunchtime tomorrow and then it will start to move on out as we get into the afternoon but some drizzle may kind of linger. so here's a look at some rainfall totals for you. just one of our computer models giving you a really good idea of a general half inch rainfall. less to the north and west. a little bit more closer to an inch likely here in southeastern massachusetts but as this storm approaches and gets a little bit stronger off shore, the winds start to ramp up. so that's the other component with this system. overnight tonight into tomorrow, look how the winds along the
5:14 am
coastline could be gusting 30, 40 miles per hour. we've got a wind advisory up and down the coastline here for that gust potential to about 50 miles per hour. that could be enough to bring down some tree limbs. we'll be watching for those impacts tonight and through the day tomorrow. so it is a wet, windy and raw veterans day. tomorrow. then we get into thursday could be a few additional showers moving on through. timing looks good though. friday looks mild. and then we're cooling it off but seeing a lot of sunshine here for the upcoming weekend. let's get you back out to the roads right now. kevin: overall we're in pretty decent shape. not too bad. the top end of the expressway looking pretty good. you are start to go seattle volume pick up between braintree and columbia road. no heavy delays yet. we do have troubles out to the west though. if you're heading into town from the west this morning, let's good to the map. we've got a crash out in the charlton stretch on the mass pike right near the charlton rest area. last check just one lane was getting by. eastbound delays are solid right back to route 84 so keep that in mind if you're heading in this morning. down or up to the north we're looking pretty good.
5:15 am
93 new hampshire down into somerville same with route 3 and 95. south of town no troubles here on routes 3 or 95 heading up to 128 and 93. 24 northbound sounds like a new traffic pattern down in that construction zone by route 44 in raynham. already start to go see some slowdowns there. if you're taking the trains we're starting the morning on time. that's your traffic. i'm kevin brennan. are you ready for the roads and the rails? >> stop, stop. randy: dramatic body-cam video of a police-involved shooting in oklahoma. police say stacy bunsey led officers on a chase in a stolen car. she eventually rammed into a police cruiser as the officer inside fired two shots. neither hit bunsey but police eventually used a taser to get her into custody. bad news for some comcast customers. the company says the email addresses and passwords of about 200,000 customers were stolen and are up for sale on the so-called "dark web." those are networks that require
5:16 am
special software and are not available over the public internet. affected customers are being told to reset their passwords and information. a new uber service is trying its first full week in boston and across the u.s. uber events lets event hosts buy rides for guests. uses have to go to the uber website not the app. they then choose an event code, and the host chooses a maximum the guest can spend per ride and the number of riders. emily: this morning, we continue our mission to get fit like the pros. today, how to train like a soccer star. we're on the practice field with the new england revolution to find out how they perform at their best. kelyn rowe, a midfielder for the revs, spends a lot of time on the move. kelyn rowe: we're attacking and then all of a sudden it's an 80-yard run and we're defending again. emily: endurance and agility are key. so a typical training day includes some time in the gym, then an extensive warm-up and activation exercises. kelyn rowe: on our hamstrings, on our quads, on our calves.
5:17 am
to make sure everything is pretty much tight and ready to go. once you finish those, go across your body. emily: the team's fitness coach, nick downing, is also focused on their power and speed. nick downing: we do a lot of jumping, we do a lot of core exercises so any sort of plyometric stuff, any sort of resisted running, hill stuff. emily: and there's really no middle ground when it comes to "soccer fitness." >> that's just because their sport, soccer, is very high intensity or very low intensity. emily: but the best part of practice? >> we're like golden retrievers, you throw a ball in front of us, everyone is going to go attack it and start running around and have some fun. >> i'm not going to call you dogs in my piece, if you don't mind? >> thank you, thank you. your take away? try adding some high-intensity interval training into your routine. push yourself to the max for short bursts to build your stamina and power. tomorrow train like a figure skater. we're getting the fitness secrets from a world championship synchronized
5:18 am
skating team. and that means working on and off the ice. randy: boy, we're really getting into is agility forms of exercise. emily: no, i'm not wearing ice skates. randy: i was hoping so. emily: i know you were. randy: that would be a great moment. we'd all watch, wouldn't we? a prank using the likeness of a well-known new york city rodent. emily: and unsolicited dance moves have police searching for two women. both ahead in eyepoppers. erika? erika: new at 5:30. a spike in the number of missing prescriptions in massachusetts hospitals. changes are coming to the way boston restaurants are inspected. the new move to make sure they make the grade.
5:19 am
randy: good morning. you may have seen this pop up in your social media feed. doug meehan, a familiar face to many of you, is joining the newscenter 5 team and the eyeopener family. emily: doug has been working in phoenix but is coming home to boston next month to join antoinette antonio on the weekend eye. and, of course, you'll see him during the week, too, which has cindy pretty excited. cindy: yes. it's going to be great to have him back in boston. he, of course, grew up on the cape and he's coming home. so happy to be working with him again here. he'll be arriving in december. you'll see him on channel 5 on the weekends and here with us on the eye occasionally as well. notice to the south there is some rain that is working in our direction. it's going to take until the
5:20 am
evening hours for it to get here. it's going to move in from south to north. we're starting out dry. may see a little bit of filtered sunshine this morning. we'll come out of the 40's into the mid 50's this afternoon. that rain gets in here this evening. it's going to be with us into your veteran day so it is a rainy, windy, raw start to veterans day. rain lingers with some drizzle into midday. we will slowly dry it out here by the evening hours tomorrow but some wind and rain on the way. the full timeline just ahead. randy. randy: cindy, thank you. time for eyepoppers. erika's back with the video you have to see. erika: and it starts with some criminally offensive dancing. we're not kidding. these ladies are wanted for dancing on a man they did not know. this happened in washington, those women could be charged with sexual harassment. randy: oh, my gosh. okay.
5:21 am
(screaming). erika: you know the farmers market at union square in new york city. remember that beloved subway rat to scamper off with an entire piece of pizza? this one is actually a robot. some pranksters tried to replicate with what looks like a fake remote-control rat. people with justifiable fear of vermin were understandably freaked out. there is times square. you know, taking a tour. randy: probably new yorkers weren't responding. these are all tourists. erika: there are so many rats unfortunately. but being that close, it would scare anyone. randy: okay. emily: still ahead, a proposal to change how the mbta program that assists the disabled operates. the idea to get uber and lyft in the mix. only on 5, a high school football star back on the field after he was attacked. his message for those standing behind him. >> this is an editorial by wcvb-tv channel 5 president and general manager bill fine. bill fine: how can a teacher have an illicit relationship
5:22 am
face criminal charges? in massachusetts, it's all about timing. this week, "5 investigates" uncovered the disturbing story of andrea clemens. when andrea was 14, a teacher, robert baker, befriended her and gained her trust. andrea clemens: i had been groomed for two years, and he didn't kiss me til like the week after i turned 16. that slow pace thing quickly turned into such an aggressive sexually abusive man that i was terrified all the time, and i had no voice to say no. bill fine: but because andrea was 16, baker's behavior wasn't considered criminal. sadly, baker targeted other students too until he finally pleaded guilty to charges in 2002 and is now categorized as a level 3 sex offender. but he never faced charges related to andrea. so how unusual is andrea's case? "5 investigates" discovered in recent years, on average, licenses of 15 massachusetts educators are suspended for sexual misconduct each year. but there aren't always charges.
5:23 am
older, by law, sexual misconduct amazingly isn't considered a crime. it's time the state toughened consent laws and recognized the obvious-- the teacher-and-student relationship is not an equal one-- and those in a position of authority can too readily exert power over young, impressionable teens. andrea is now working with advocates to change state law, making sex between a teacher and student a crime until age 19. age of consent bills have been filed on beacon hill and hearings are scheduled for december. it is hard to conceive of any reasoning preventing legislators from taking tougher action so stories like andrea's result in

5:29 am

5:31 am
at a meeting monday, officials pointed out the savings if rates were raised from $3.00 to $4.20 a ride. back in 2012, the "t" tried to hike fares on the door-to-door service for the disabled but had to roll them back after pressure from advocates. there are other proposed changes that could also save the agency money. that includes allowing ride-sharing services like uber and lyft to transport disabled passengers for a savings of $16 million, more training to help disabled riders use the twhich could save $11 million, or reducing the service area for the ridefor $12 million. advocates say many who use the service consider it a critical lifeline. no decisions have been made. todd kazakiewich, wcvb, newscenter 5. >> i consider myself very lucky. i'm really happy to be here today to be standing here right now. emily: only on 5, the everett high school football player who was attacked while breaking up a fight is back out on the field. he spoke to newscenter 5's mike lynch last night.
