5:12 am
full v.i.p. treatment from us. just head to our wcvb facebook page to enter. i think today is the last day. cindy: what? randy: to enter. olessa: saturday is okay. cindy: dry and colder. compared to last year. but it won't be raining. that's a good thing. let me show you the big storm in the middle of the country right now. you can see it all wound up. severe weather from texas into the plains today. look at that snow flying around denver. blizzard watches are up through the rockies. this is quite a powerful storm but it will take a few days before it gets here. it will impact us in the form of rain here especially later thursday into friday morning. i think friday morning commute is going to be impacted by some heavier rainfall. so the end of the week is when we'll get into that. ahead of that system, it will be bright today but cooler than yesterday. we get to 61 in boston yesterday. today we're not getting out of the 40's. it stays dry and cool through wednesday. then some of that beneficial
5:13 am
rainfall which we need around here comes in on thursday. in the meantime it's pretty quiet. you can see that system running into high pressure by is nosing out of canada this morning so this weng of dry air working on in. and a flow around that high is from the north and northeast. so what it's doing basically is generating these ocean-effect clouds over the cape this morning. that is why the temperatures down this way are a little bit milder. you can see the winds aren't terribly strong but enough wind with that cold air mass in place to generate those clouds. you can see the temperatures are holding in the low 40's on the cape. 43 even up to marshfield. once you get into boston mid 30's. worcester just 31. in between lots of 20's from norwood to bedford up to nashua. just 25 degrees in nashua right now. and out through the worcester area, temperature s are going to be holding near the freezing mark through about 8:00 this morning. by 11:00 a.m. we're in the lower 40's but despite the sunshine during the afternoon, we're going to keep our high temperatures in the 40's pretty much all day long. looking for a high today of just 45 worcester. 47 in boston. and even on the cape we're in the low 40's now its going to
5:14 am
hold in the mid 40's all day long. it's a cooler day. back down into the 20's and the 30's but the skies are still clear tonight. we'll wake up to a lot of sunshine with high pressure still in control on wednesday morning. we're going to have mostly sunny skies throughout the day. notice by 5:00 p.m. just a few clouds starting to enter western new england but here comes this frontal boundary and the clouds are going to be increasing through 8:00 a.m. but notice on thursday it's a milder southerly flow so we're only near 50 coming up tomorrow. but we jump into the upper 50's on thursday. that rain really not a big issue for the morning hours. it takes all day to get in here. by 5:00 p.m. worcester on west i rain. the rest of us see that heavier rain come in thursday night and it's with us through at least the first half of the day on friday. now we've got quite a deficit going in boston in terms of the rain. we're about nine inches behind for the year. this system looks like it easily gives us about an inch of rain here by the time it winds down later on friday. could see a little bit more than that in some spots but we're drying it out for the upcoming weekend and cooling it down. mid 40's on saturday with the wind blowing it will feel colder
5:15 am
than that. olessa: how about this morning? today was the first day i was like winter is coming. thank you, cindy. so far it's a quiet start. all the overnight construction is out of the way. if you're heading out the door allston/brighton. problem free both directions. let's get over to the maps. roadwork picked up on 93 south at the zakim on the expressway northbound as well. near the o'neill tunnel and then also cleared away that construction near neponset circle. good to go as you travel 128 by 59 and a problem free ride on the pike. that roadwork hassles cleared for the early morning hours. 128 by route 2a construction picked up there as well. so far the trains and the bus s are starting the morning on emily. a "5 investigates" exclusive. the new england center for for many homeless veterans in need. but some believe the center that leaving our soldiers behind. "5 investigates" obtained records showing hundreds of calls to boston police from the shelter involving illegal drugs, assaults, and illegal firearms. there were also more than 400
5:16 am
last year alone. center is infested with bed bugs. there are roaches in the kitchen, rats in the basement, and mice. records show 32 men who live or work at the center are registered sex offenders, most of them level 3's, who are considered the most likely to re-offend. >> many veterans who really need help do not go there because. conditions are so bad. >> if you look at the general condition of our living areas, you will see that they're certainly not luxurious. they're not palacial, but i think they meet standards of sanitation. emily: the center, which provides a variety of services to veterans, began a major $32 million renovation project in may which they say will address many of the issues raised in the "5 investigates" report. banks in massachusetts have the least happy customers. a research firm asked thousands of people about quality of service ranging from tellers to interest rates and mobile apps. bank of america-- the
5:17 am
survey. the second-biggest-- citizens-- scored a 70. wells fargo came up with the top national score of 75. emily: when it comes to a cuisine everyone likes, it's hard to argue with italian. this week we're going into the kitchens of some of boston's newest and hottest restaurants. randy: erika is back now with seasoning secrets from the chef at "la motta" in the south end. erika: "la motta" is the newest offering by the aquitane restaurant group. the chef behind the roman-inspired italian spot cinquecento now going for a less formal feel and offering us some tasty tips. step into a "time gone by" in boston's south end. chef: it's the homey, family, "your grandmother is in the back" cooking. erika: actually chef justin winters is playing the role of grandma serving up tummy-warming italian. chef: some of the familiar flavors presented a little bit more elegantly.
5:18 am
erika: up for sharing some secrets, we were welcomed into his kitchen to make some roasted cauliflower with a kick. the key here-- seasoning. chef: fried capers and golden raisins and some spicy bread crumbs. erika: fry the capers first, add cauliflower pre-roasted in the oven, then the raisins, salt and parsley. a tip-- it's not just for decoration. in fact, chef winters boasts the modest parsley is one of his favorite herbs. the prime ingredient to what he calls the perfect topping for fish. chef: you pick some parsley, a lot of it actually, celery leaves which are one of my favorite-- these guys right here really underused-- some chives some basil and it's one of the best things in the world. erika: back to the cauliflower. add the parsley, plate. finish it off with spicy bread crumbs, chili oil, and celery leaves. then voila! it's delicious. thank you. i love cally flower. it was really good. emily: who knew about parsely?
5:19 am
erika: another thing about parsely, it freshens your breath. great for date night. emily: we can start munching parsely here on the eye. erika, thank you. has love run out in your relationship? relieve the stress of breaking up. that's ahead in eyepoppers. randy: new at 5:30. in minnesota shuts down a highway. the message from protestors. sera? sera: emotional testimony expected today in the trial of philip chism. the witness set to take the

5:28 am
this morning as well. when you head down to the cape got lower 40's out there. we've got ocean-effect clouds that have been generated here on the cape especially closer to the canal. that's pulling the temperatures up just a little bit. this north-northeastly wind flowing around cool high pressure draining out of canada that is bringing those clouds and certainly some cooler temperatures today. but overall outside of the cape, it is a sun-filled day. we're going to be cool this morning not coming up to about 40 degrees until 9:00 a.m. we spend the afternoon in the 40's so no lower 60's like yesterday. 47 the best we're doing in boston. maybe 48 from saugus up to middleton, nashua as well. framingham in the upper 40's this afternoon. mid to upper 40's here out through worcester county and south of boston not much better. maybe nudging toward 50 degrees in taunton but still spent most of the afternoon in the 40's. 47 from duxbury to plymouth and mid 40's on cape cod today as well. at least we have the sunshine today. mostly sunny skies. in middle of the week, we'll talk about when rain moves in coming up.
5:29 am
let's get you out to the roads and see how we're looking out there. olessa: no problems in both directions on 93 in somerville. southbound side just a little bit of volume starting to build. the rest of the area is quiet. all the construction now gone. if you're heading into boston problem free. south of town you're in good shape on 24, route 3 as well. no problems on 95. the pike is wide open. route 9 nice and quiet. no problems traveling down 93 from new hampshire all the way down to the leverett connector. the trains and the buses also on schedule. randy: thank you. breaking overnight. russia now says a homemade bomb brought down an airliner over egypt last month killing more than 200 people. russian president vladimir putin vowed to hunt down the terrorists responsible. he's offering a $50 million reward. morning. french airstrikes hit more than a dozen new targets in syria overnight. french police also conducted more than 128 new raids in france looking for anyone involved in the deadly paris attacks on friday. randy: right now a beverly man charged with trying to kill his
5:30 am
estranged wife. police say axel scherer choked the victim so severely she's now in critical condition. emily: right now jurors are bracing for what will be an emotional day at the trial of a teenager accused of raping and murdering his teacher. randy: the eyeopener's sera congi is in salem to set the stage. sera: randy and emily. in just a few hours the mother of the beloved danvers high school teacher will take the stand and face the accused killer in court. phillip chism was 14 when even his own lawyers admit he attacked and killed 24-year-old colleen ritzer. his defense is laying the groundwork for an insanity defense arguing that he is mentally ill. but prosecutors say chism planned the attack and knew exactly what he was doing. a topsfield police officer says chism was unphased shortly after his arrest. >> he appeared to be staring off into the distance. >> yes.
5:31 am
dazed? >> he wasn't understanding. sera: chism has pleaded not guilty to murder, rape, and robbery in the 2013 attack. we will be in the courtroom bringing you updates as they happen. and you can watch live on wcvb.com and on our wcvb mobile apps. live at the salem courthouse, sera congi, wcvb, newscenter 5. randy: lawyers for the man accused of kidnapping and raping a girl from new hampshire are fighting to have the pornography he owned excluded from the evidence against him. nathaniel kibby will be in court for a hearing today. prosecutors say pornography gave him the idea to kidnap a girl from conway, new hampshire, two years ago. his lawyers will argue it's irrelevant and can't be used against him. emily: right now, police are thieves who carried out a well-orchestrated break-in at an army reserve facility. the worcester city manager says investigators are searching for one unidentified man. we've learned thieves got away with six m-4 assault rifles and
5:32 am
ten handguns from the lincoln stoddard army reserve center. federal investigators say the break-in does not appear to be tied to terrorism, but state and local officials call it a cause for serious concern. >> we're not sure if it's local or if it's something bigger than that. i think the timing of this breaking in to the arm ore was a difficult time particularly in light of what happened in paris. emily: a military official tells "5 investigates" a burglary of army's 5,000 stand-alone armories. randy: new this morning, a federal judge has ruled the boston police department discriminated against minorities while using a 2008 exam to select seargents for promotions. "the globe" reports the written portion of the exam was skewed in favor of white candidates. and it skipped over critical skills and abilities, including reasoning and judgment. just 5 of the 33 sergeants promoted to the rank of lieutenant over the last six years have been black. emily: right now state leaders are preparing to take a vote that will impact students across massachusetts.
5:33 am
is live at the state house with what's at stake today. todd? we're talking about a test that will be taken by thousands of students across the state. obviously it has major implications. it's been a huge debate in schools for the past year or should massachusetts replace the mcas with the new parcc test which is aligned with federal common core standards. some schools already used the parcc last year, and some reported problems and computer glitches with the test. today state education leaders will vote on a proposal to create a new hybrid test combining elements of both tests. it would take effect in 2017. but there are still a lot of questions including what the new test would look like and how much it would cost. for parents and students, this is an even bigger concern since the results of the statewide testing is used to rank school districts.
5:34 am
we'll keep you posted. as we get new details. reporting live from the state house, todd kazakiewich, wcvb, newscenter 5. emily: the number of international students studying at colleges here in the bay state is at a record high. massachusetts ranks fourth nationally in the number of foreign students in the state, with most of them studying at northeastern and b.u. more than 32 percent of those students are here from china. administrators at those schools say they are increasing the number of foreign students intentionally as a way to prepare students to work in an increasingly global society. randy: a new jersey mall changing its tune after getting tons of public backlash. emily: the visit to santa that would have added up for parents. health alert. new benefits to that cup of coffee. the discovery from researchers at harvard. randy: and ahead in news to go, police officers off the job this morning after this video surfaces. the attack, their defense, and
