out of the burning back seat. >> totally running on adrenaline because he was in the front seat of the car. he had to grab the two kids out of the back seat and get them out to safety. >> it increased rapidly. the flames began to swell. thick, flack smoke filled the air. the attendant stopped the flow of the gas which kept the fire from spreading and everyone involved is okay. >> we're tracking the tropics. important as we head into the holiday weekend. as much as i love hurricane is not great and i'm not too thrilled about it. harv: i think it may be tougher for some other than us. if you're along the florida panhandle, even though this is before labor day weekend, they will take a direct hit from probably a tropical storm, it could be a minimal hurricane. it goes inland to about the maryland coast and then offshore but notice that tropical storm sign changes to a low pressure area. >> i was just going to say that could be good news. if it does jog a little west and
5:17 pm
over water. >> it will also interact with a few fronts so it may not act as a tropical system. the question is will the rain or any wind get far enough north in our area for the second half of the weekend? that's the tricky part of the forecast. >> always. >> but there is the storm. it's in the gulf of mexico. now 45 mile per hour tropical storm. the name is hermine. the track is definitely, as models, it's clustered to take it inland across the southeast to the carolinas. it's pretty much, you can see here, if you go all the way left or right, the average point certainly seems pretty fixed. after that kind of diverges because it's probably going to run into a blocking pattern and it's probably going to get so far north, and then trouble not get any further north than that. this could be far enough north to give some effect meaning some rain, which, of course, we could dearly use especially in
5:18 pm
and maybe some gusty winds especially on the south coast and cape. the idea is in this position it's probably going to be what was a tropical storm and partly kind of an ordinary storm, or extratropical cal, and probably the winds wouldn't be super great at that time, but again, this is still many days away and we kind of have to see how this formulates as we go along. here's the actual track, taking it inland, converting has a lot of rain with it, especially in this area, and some wind and taking it off the coast and meandering around here for the second half of the holiday weekend in. terms of rain, i think we have a front coming through late tonight and tomorrow, so a medium chance of getting a few showers. just the slightest chance of a spritz on friday. dry on saturday. and a medium chance sunday and monday. not like guaranteed that we're going to get rain. we're in a drought.
5:19 pm
prevent rain it has. on the other hand, sometimes it's tropical systems that tend to break a drought in. terms -- actually, this is not what i wanted to show, didn't prepare that that's wrong so forget that. the winds i'm talking about so far, doesn't look like it would be a real serious situation. just gusty winds on the south coast and cape. i also want to let you know we're many days away. that could change to some extent. 81 in boston now. it's become more humid around the region. the temperatures are in the 70s and low 80 s. restricted somewhat by the cloud cover. higher humidity extends to about the great lakes. there is a front on the way. that's how we have chance to get a few showers or thunderstorms, while we have the muggy air through tomorrow. less humid air comes in on friday and it's with us on saturday as well. only dropping to 70 in boston. 70s to around 80 w. some cloud cover and the risk of a few storms. beach and boating, you've seen the story. keep an eye to the sky, though, tomorrow, because there could be
5:20 pm
around. doesn't look like the risks tomorrow will be that high. showers off to the west-northwest. a gap in between. as the front presses closer overnight tonight, there is a chance for a couple of showers or thunderstorms wandering through and if we don't get any overnight tonight there is a chance we'll get a couple tomorrow. tomorrow is a better chance. and then the drier air flows in on friday. stays with us on saturday. i did want to point out that saturday starts out with sun but filtered sun as his clouds come up from the south and that's ahead of what will be left of tropical storm hermine at that time. so saturday is your best of the three weekend days the way it appears now. with both sunday and monday probably featuring clouds, pablt of some rain possibly of some gusty winds for the south coast and cape depending on how close it comes to us. if it stops at a certain point, doesn't get any closer, then maybe most of the rain and gusty winds will stay south.
5:21 pm
along. >> harvey, thanks. >> police officer coming to the rescue of a curious cat. take a look. the officer came to the rescue. after a few tugs the officer is able to remove the cat's head, runs off, just a little hungry, that's all. cute. >> and free, everything is good. >> saving money on school lunches. the changes that add you will. >> new 59:30, the story behind this wonderful gesture, the mover made by a college football player.

>> best practices for packing lunch for back to school, easy wa you buy and the packaging you put it in. for example, we compared buying bags of chips to popping your own popcorn. not only do you save calories, 110 calories in a bag of chips versus 70 in two things of popcorn, choices add up. more savings in this guide to packing lunch. a piece of fruit three times a week instead of individual fruit
5:25 pm
of pre-packed, twice a week, saves you $95 a year, and packing in a reusable container instead of two sandwich baggies a day saves $11. >> the initial cost is a little bit but as long as the it can brings them home it is a very low cost thing that's not contributing to landfill waste. >> have kids bring their own water saveings more than a hundred dollars per year. >> more back-to-school coverage begins tomorrow morning on the eye opener. a whole new way of learning that's really catching on. >> the school superintendent in west bridgewater giving her staff quite the welcome back. check this out.

four hundred million dollars. that's how much charter schools will drain from four hundred million siphoned from local districts that desperately need it. four hundred million that won't fund more science and technology, arts or preschool, counseling, or smaller class sizes. four hundred million unavailable to the ninety-six percent of students who don't attend charter schools. let's improve public schools for all students, not just a select few.

5:30 pm
harv: a fringe effect seems a likely scenario for part of the week, that's the best estimate i have at this particular time. it's way down to the gulf of mexico. it's just become a tropical storm. the highest winds 459 miles per hour. the greater impact is likely to be felt around the upper florida coast. that's because you're going to get a storm surge down there. heavy rain and the gusty winds. it will probably be a strong tropical storm or a minimal hurricane when it makes landfall. then it's over land for a while so it ob but it will still have a tremendous amount of moisture. it will make a somewhat closer path to us later on in the holiday weekend but notice it may get to about this position and may struggle to get any further north. so will it be close enough to give some appreciable rain and some gusty if not strong winds to part of the area? >> the rain chances probably pick up on sunday and continue into monday, at left a medium chance. as for a gusty or strong winds, a medium chance sunday and monday, south coast and the cape
