5:48 pm
mind. 75 in boston, 76 beverly but you see the low 80s away from the coastline. there is a big difference from yesterday to the tune of about 5-10 degrees cooler. generally speaking. then our 90 degree temperatures yesterday. we do have a good healthy sea breeze in metro boston. 10-15 miles an hour sustained winds. it's warm and must go i for us tomorrow. sun then clouds moving in and we could get more 90 degree readings for us but we've already on record for boston. it was warm across new england this year. we're very likely going to secure this top spot as well. the driest summer meteorological summer june, july and august on record. we'll see when our next chance of rain actually arrives for us. high pressure sliding farther to the east. we turn our attention to this front that will sweep through overnight wednesday into thursday. but that is also when we turn the page on the calendar into a new month
5:49 pm
that would be meteorological fall. when does the rain show up? the timeline gives us a chance of maybe getting a spot shower or isolated storm overnight wednesday into thursday morning but it's looking more likely that the wet weather arrives in scattered nature as we get into early thursday, this is the forecast model trying to pick up on what is now tropical depression 8. the bulk of the system being pushed out to sea by this cooler air behind the front sort of a preview of fall but i don't think the seasonable temperatures stick around with us. more summer-like warmth on the way for september. we'll focus on and cross our fingers for this 30% chance of rain as we get into thursday. as i mentioned before scattered in nature. isolated thunderstorms, isolated downpour could be included. look at this downward slide it's just close to average
5:50 pm
it could be a shock to the system. as ryan mentioned before a lot to keep an eye on in the tropics. we've got category 2 hurricane gaston, not an issue for us but churning up the owian swells t.d.9. d.9 will be something to watch but right now churning up the ocean to give us the risk for rip current. that's a moderate risk. t.d.9 wre closely and the most updated track from the national hurricane track brings the cone of uncertainty up to close to home. this will be in the timeline of sunday into monday. that does not guarantee that it makes it in our direction, we could use the rain but we don't want a storm but we'll watch it. it could throw off this entire forecast as we head into labor day weekend. >> jadiann: if you have a dog of your own, you know
5:51 pm
friend. there we go but have you ever had a dog look into your eyes then you think they know exactly what you are saying. >> ryan: there is proof that our pooches are capable of canine communication and understanding the meaning blind human language -- behind human language. dogs have many ways of telling us how they're feeling from happy to not so happy. maybe even a little embarrassed sometimes. now there is evidence dogs can understand humansoo researchers in hungary trained dogs to sit very still in a functional mri scanner. in a good boy voice then in a neutral voice. brain scans showed the dogs processed words correctly regardless of tone meaning they understooded meaning of the word. the theory is the dogs understand that the words good i would are a good thing when they're setting a
