5:13 am
>> christa: welcome back. 5:13. this is what you're going to be encountering as you wake up. downed leaves and you mix those with a little water, it could be slick. leave extra time. it's interesting the way the rain can coming down. it's like a fine mist. not a heavy downpour but a misty feeling. >> jadiann: and leaving puddles on the roads. rich kirkland reporting concerns of hydroplaning. a good idea to give yourself extra time. >> absolutely. it's a raw feel for sure. a good description as i headed out this morning. in the city it wasn't bad.
5:14 am
the winds not even packing a punch yet but that could happen. i'll show you why. we're just at the beginning of this system starting to push through. just some showery, drizzly spots in metrowest. the moderate bands of rain are setting up along cape cod and for the islands. where they have been through last night as well. another good clip through pepperell at this time. the main concern at this point of the morning commute, all the leaves that have been falling down the last week or two are clogging the drainage areas. so still seeing ponding on the roads even though rain totals haven't been impressive in most locations. providence, boston, worcester, beverly, less than a half inch. hyannis, more than an inch of rain at this point. that looks to be where the heavier rainfall will set up for today. you can see this right along the south coast, also for cape cod, the islands, even the south
5:15 am
northeast as we get into the later parts of the morning hours. closer to noontime. then what happens as we eat lunch and head outed in the afternoon is just that raw feel. the winds will be with us but it will not be as wet. the rain will ramp down past about noontime. wet and windy for the morning and i would gander to say this is more in the good category for the afternoon but we have to wait for the ponding to dissipate as well. rainfall totals as we make it into later this afternoon, maybe closer to a half inch through boston then again that bull's eye, south shore and south coast, cape cod and the islands. a wind advisory through 7:00 p.m. for gusts between 25-35 miles an hour plus. again, the more east you get, the stronger the winds will be but as we get into the evening, the winds die down. tomorrow not really an issue for us. it's one and done with this system racing through 30-40 miles an hour.
5:16 am
those mid 40s for most locations. closer to 50 for the city of boston and they don't move a lot today. so don't expect the temperatures to spike in the afternoon. the 60-degree days are gone for now but the pattern hasn't changed, staying in the seasonable temperature categories. low 50s. a look out west, our next concern, winter storm system moving through the rockies. we move through the timeline and get rid of this system then that system, though it heads to the north of us, drags through a front into the later parts of tomorrow. so that could set us up with showers as we get into the afternoon and evening hours. nothing like today but wet weather ahead. 45 to 51 as temperatures fall. for the parades today, in brockton it's going to be wet and windy for us for the morning hours. not as bad in boston for the afternoon as showers do taper to more of a drizzly, raw feel.
5:17 am
look for a warmup because the pattern hasn't changed completely. a little windy, crisp for us this weekend but then 60 degrees, back in the forecast, close to it on monday and hitting it on tuesday. >> jadiann: thank you so much. new details on the deadly metro jet crash in egypt. u.s. investigators could soon get a chance to look at physical evidence from the crash believed to be caused by a bomb. a person with knowledge on the matter say egypt accepted the ntsb offer to help investigate. the ntsb is now reportedly waiting to find out when and he where the plane's engines will be examined. >> christa: crews will be back on the scene of the deadly plane crash that happened in ohio. they'll work to recover the bodies of the people killed when a small jet slammed into an apartment building. let's go to nancy chen. incredibly no one on the ground was hurt. >> absolutely. neighbors say it was terrifying. as many as nine people were onboard the plane. no one inside the building was
5:18 am
hit but there were plenty of people nearby. a fiery crash site, thick black smoke in the air and the shell of what was once a home to several families. this is what left after a plane plows into an apartment building. >> we have a plane into a house. >> it happened just before 3:00 tuesday afternoon. witnesses say a ten seater business jet fell from the sky tripping utility lines and crashing into this home that houses several apartments. the debris set the neighboring building on fire. people near say it was terrifying. >> i just heard a loud noise and the plane fell out of the sky and veered left and right into the duplex. it was a massive explosion. >> another neighbor was video chatting with a friend when the plane suddenly flashed by her window. oh my god. >> second engine company. i need to go to the street directly south.
5:19 am
>> no one was in either building at the time but no one onboard survived. investigators will be looking at if the weather played a role in the crash as it was rainy and foggy in the area at the time. nancy chen, "7 news today in new england." >> christa: thank you. up next, what a new hampshire goodwill store employee did after finding a big chunk of cash accidentally left in a wallet being donated. >> jadiann: why the mbta is reversing course after releasing the results of a poll to pick

5:21 am
>> a wet and windy start to this wednesday more many of us but not all of us. as we get off into worcester county, barrel any shower activity. boston now more of a light shower activity or even drizzle. the moderate bands of rain across cape cod and the islands and south shore where the bulk
5:22 am
of the rainfall will be today and the stronger winds. wind advisory packing a punch. there's the storm system. it's out of here by the afternoon. the showers taper by 2:00 p.m. this evening, some cooling and clearing and temperatures will drop. today they don't really go a whole far away from where they are right now. we'll get to that extended forecast coming up in a little bit. good morning, eli manning has a flair for the dramatic. the giants have a coach and quarterback who can compete with bill belichick and brady. coughlin and manning won three straight vicaries and belichick says watch out for the giants. >> good quarterbacks, good receivers, those guys really catch the ball well and
5:23 am
so they do a good job of making catches when the ball's around them and the ball is usually thrown pretty accurately. >> the celtics in milwaukee last night. down 12 early on but heating up. kelly olynyk off the dribble and gets it to go. that capped off a 13-2 run and the celtics were within one. david lee will kick it out to isaiah thomas with a team high 20 and the celtics led 46-42. sullinger 11 points, 10 boards then turner off the steal going coast-to-coast. he throws it down and caps off a 16-0 run. celtics cruise to a 99-83 win. celtics tonight at the gashed hosting -- garden hosting the pacers going for a third straight win. >> christa: a change coming to youth soccer in opens of
5:24 am
preventing concussions. new with guidelines now prohibit kids 10 and under from using heads to hit the ball. kids 11 to 13 only will be allowed to do headers dug games not in practice. the move resolves a class action lawsuit charging groups including u.s. soccer were negligent for not addressing the problem. concussions a huge issue in youth football. we just saw that piece about a new blood test to detect tell me. >> jadiann: right. a color controversy. why there may be a problem with the results of the poll to pick the t designs. >> booking your trip home for

5:26 am
that's banking reimagined. what's in your wallet? andrew: the one thing about soccer that i like the most is when i put my uniform on, the age just leaves me. the ages leave all of us. we simply become kids again. i think all of us play for that very reason. it makes us the child we once were. the years just glide away, and i'm back to where i was. you are that little andy guy who used to be down in me, and i get to be that person all over again. my name is andrew,

5:29 am
what a nor'easter is. we're dealing with the wet weather and winds so today not necessarily a day for umbrellas, dress like a gorton's fisheman. not impressive with the shower activity metrowest, boston to worcester. dry in worcester at this point but the more moderate rain showers are across cape cod and both the islands where they have been through the night. i think that's where the bulk of this sets up for today. here's our storm system moving along to the northeast at a pretty good clip. nevertheless it will affect the morning commute. through the timeline, you can see that shower activity the more moderate bands and heavier downpours. it will set up along the south shore, southeastern mass, cape cod and the islands through the afternoon. past lunchtime we could see breaks in the cloud cover. maybe some peaks of sunshine. the winds keep whipping through evening hours.
5:30 am

5:32 am
governor asking the wage to go up to $15 an hour. >> once at the statehouse, loud cheers as the group heard from a state senator that the push for the higher minimum wage made it out of committee and moves to the senate and the house. >> real loud, so everybody can hear you. for $15 an hour.

5:33 am

5:39 am
focused across the south shore, southeastern mass, cape cod and the islands. that's where the bulk of the rainfall will stay. here's our system moving through at a pretty good clip. by the time we hit this afternoon, the winds lingering but the rain should be gone. still a raw feel but moving through the timeline, you can see more moderate bands of rainfall focused across the southeastern part of the state. then past lunchtime, maybe some drizzle in the air but we are not talking about downpours. so the worst part of the commute for today will be in the morning time. for the afternoon, puddles on the roadways and into the evening commute, things looking much better. maybe some more rain tomorrow. more details in just a few minutes. >> jadiann: look at this. a news paper ad for gain laundry deterry gent has a grandmother upset. the product says smells like yeehaw.

>> christa: 5:45. it's wednesday and a rainy start so we're kicking off your day with "know and go" here. >> jadiann: everything you need to know and go. first, let's check in with bri eggers. good morning, rainy but windy. winds craning out of the in order to northeast at 18 mile-an-hour in the city. this is a coastal storm to the southeast so those two locaters telling us where the bulk of the activity with this storm system will be to southeastern mass. that's where we'll see the heaviest rainfall and stronger wind gusts. as we're moving through the morning, showers are starting to
5:44 am
bloom a little bit. storm system racing off to the southeast but it can give us extra lift with a wrap around air flow so we'll continue to watch that through the morning hours. what we're seeing right now. with the areas of heavier rainfall across cape cod and the islands is where we'll see the bulk of this as we get through the entire morning. running through the timeline, we get into 9:00, 10:00. the showers ramp down past noon. it will just be a light shower, drizzly afternoon for us but the winds keep cranking into the evening hours. how much rainfall? closer to a half inch. i'm not super confident about an inch for bedford and nashua. the bulk of this focused in the purple area, possibly closer to 2 inches in the south shore and cape and the islands. hyannis has more than an inch from the rainfall. wind gusts between 25 and 35 miles an hour at this point. i think that's where we'll stay. wind advisory in effect through
5:45 am
minor power disruptions are a possibility, downed tree branches as well. current temperatures in the low some locations. they don't move a lot so bring that jacket. i don't necessarily think it's an umbrella type day. maybe more hood. clearing overnight. also very cool temperatures with that clearing. maybe more rain on the way tomorrow. we'll get a look at that extended forecast. i'll bring it up here. it just takes a second. there it is. we see temperatures rebound back closer to 60 as we enter the beginning of next week but that's after a brisk and windy but dry weekend. see you in a bit. >> jadiann: let's check in with rich kirkland for a look at the roads. >> rich: good morning. a pudly look, a splashy look. no flooding but watch out for the far left and right lanes where the puddles are.
5:46 am
it would be bumper-to-bumper at this time any other day but not today being a holiday so volume's down. driving conditions are not the best so it will take time and patience. we've had a couple spinouts but that's all. no accidents. things in pretty good shape. the t says despite the weather and slippery leaves on the rails, they're doing all right. >> christa: thank you. let's go to our top story. the new york state attorney general organizing the two largest daily fantasy sports companies, fanduel and draftkings to stop accepting bets. >> jadiann: he says the games constitute illegal gambling under new york law. nicole oliverio is in boston with what the companies are promising to do this morning. >> reporter: in a statement draftkings firing back saying that they're going to allow new york residents to continue gambling while they persue all legal options at the new york attorney general put a cease and desist order for the
5:47 am

that aren't even seeing the rainfall. that doesn't mean it's not windy. the kids aren't at the boss stop. a moderate band of rain but it comes and goes and it's not anywhere year downpours. same story into cape cod, the south shore, where i think the bulk of the moisture and also the more strong wind speeds will be. so here's our storm system to the southeast of us and it's a coastal storm. both those locaters give you an idea of where the action is with this storm system. moving through the timeline, the forecast model, i think overdoing it a touch. however, as the storm system moves off to the northeast and wraps around that wind, the wind coming in off the ocean can sort of wring out that proverbial washcloth and bring rainfall. south shore and cape cod and the islands, those will be the areas we expect most of the rainfall.

pike from boston to worcester. metrowest hasn't seen a lot of rain. less than a half inch, closer to a quarter inch but some bands have more moderate rainfall turning on and off across the merrimack valley and more steady rain across the south shore, southeastern mass, cape and the islands and the islands. through the timeline, this is forecast models so you can't take this for face value. however, it does show us where most of the action ends up. that will be closer to southeastern mass, specifically the south shore with that rain and also the stronger wind gusts. you can see plymouth gusting close to 40 miles an hour at this point. that's why the wind advisory is up. cape ann to cape cod, also nantucket and the vineyard until 7:00 p.m. as far as travel goes today, it will be a little tricky in morning. again, even though there hasn't been a lot of rain in some locations we have leaves clogging the drains and the leaves can be slick. something to watch out for in
