the first land falling hurricane in 11 years, almost. then it -- weaknesses, the tropical storm moves offshore and whirls around for days, and days and days and gives us tropical sort of rain and wind here. sort like a nor'easter here on monday with some high surf and gusty winds, especially on the cape and islands. so any forecast, 82 northwest of boston. tomorrow, partly sunny and 78. nice dry air, boofrl day on saturday, clouding -- beautiful day on saturday. monday will be the stormest with rain and wind. traffic and weather together. >> well, it's still smooth sailing out there. this a live look at the northbound lanes of the expressway by columbia road. so you have in company. it's still a ten-minute drive from the split to downtown boston and the pike exit. and check out north of the city. route 131, 28 and 93 are all great options this morning and the t and commuter rail are both running on time. we have some good news about the longfellow bridge project.

from four years ago. . welcome back. thanks for joining us. >> time to flip the page on the cal tar. it's september 1st. >> i can't believe it's september already, barry, we are looking at some major weather coming at us. >> possibly, kate. it still feels like august here on this september morning because it's so humid out there. but we have hermine and there it is with top winds of 60 miles per hour. we have a hurricane warning on parts of the florida coa near apalachicola to cedar key. a tropical storm storm warning from near of the north of daytona beach up to south carolina. the storm is starting to move and should become a minute ma'am hurricane on landfall early tomorrow morning and then it moves in a position like this and sits there and whirls around to the south of new england. so that gives us spiral bands of rain coming on in here and some stronger winds right now some gayles are possible on the northeast. most of that will will be happening -- would be happening on sunday night into monday. so that's it.
the heaviest will be in southern new england. it's too early to be precise on the exact impact on new england at the present time. so we'll leave that for the next couple of days as we fine-tune this whole forecast. most of the rain today is going to be south of the mass pike. some of the heavier rain there is going to be clearing out off to the north and west. so this morning we have the rain and we've got it clearing out eventually so the showers south of boston, a warm 73 this morning. midday we'll be up around 76. scattered showers southeast. and then for this partial clearing off to the northwest, lower 80s. that's it. traffic and weather together. hi, brianna. >> checking the eastbound lanes from the pike from our cameras in brighton right in from western mass, looks great. to the south and northbound lanes on 24 and route three are both wide open. we are starting to see slowdowns though on 128 around the brain tree split around exit six. you can see the red arrows there. so it is slow and go from the split to exit nine. the t and commuter rail are
chris. >> thank you very much. it is 5:33 right now. checking our top stories. police are stepping up patrols in shirley after a woman says she was approached by a man in a van while jogging. that woman says the man pulled up next to her and offered her water around 10:00 tuesday morning. the woman ran away and notified the police. officers say she described the vehicle as a large green van with a massachusetts license plate that had the numbers 930 on it. counselors will be young boy recovers after being shot in the face. officials say the 11 year old is at a boston hospital right now and is in stable condition. that shooting happened at an abingdon home yesterday afternoon. investigators say two 11-year-old boys were inside and somehow got ahold of the gun. the d.a. says the gun was legally registered. police officers who responded are also receiving counselling. new overnight, president obama arrives in hawaii with a message on climate change.
not immune and all countries have to work together. hawaii is hosting the world's largest conservation event, an environmental conference which begins today. and we're just over two months away from election day. and for many the decision on who to vote for has already been made. well, this morning our jon keller looks whether the candidates can do anything that would make us change our minds. >> reporter: good morning. today is september 1st, which means there are exactly 68 days to go until election day. will anything that happens over these final ten weeks really make a difference to you? for instance, in february of 2011, 22 months before the presidential election, is trial match-ups between president obama and mitt romney showed obama with a four-point lead. early september of 2012, the polls on average had obama with that same four point lead. on election day, obama beat
points. of course, there were fluctuations over time. the polling down the stretch suggests a dead heat race. but you could argue that almost two years before the election, enough voters had fundamentally decided they liked obama well enough to give him the second term. and that short of some cataclysmic event nothing was going to change that. this time around, there is no incumbent rinning, although hillary clinton has cast herself as an extensi era. and donald trump certainly represents a dramatic change from what romney saw. but even as we obsess over each day's news, is her ethical issues, his tight rope walk on immigration, what this poll or that poll means, is could it be that in the end, little to none of it will really matter? i would offer one caveat, a disastrous meltdown by either candidate in that first debate could be impactful, although
debate with romney without lasting damage. but short of that, voters already have ample information with which to make a decision. too bad we have to wait another 68 days to see what it is. attorney general will submit her recommendations today on the state's new transgender rights law. it aallows people to use the bathroom or locker room that corresponds with their identity. however anyone t improper claim to gain access to a bathroom could be arrested. healey wants to education businesses. the law takts effect on october 1st. starting today, somerville will be one more place your groceries wouldn't come in plastic bags. the city is phasing in its bag ban which means only the largest retailers will have to stop orring -- offering sing-use bags today. the other stores will have until december 1st. brookline and cambridge already

. long before tom brady was one of the quarterbacks of all-time, he was a kid watching sports. and now brady says he wants to translate t as a kid into the small screen. >> according to the holly reporter, he is teaming up with former new york giant, michael strahan to create a television series called religion of sports. brady hasn't said whether he will have an on-air role, but we can hope and pray for sure. please, please, lees. >> you're saying reality show, brady bunch. >> tom, call me, i have a plan for you and giselle. it will be amazing.
so i'll give you her number. >> absolutely. absolutely. all right. barry, it is a thursday morning kidz are back to school, most of them, and we are so happy. >> she's so happy. >> kate seems really, really happy this morning. don't you think, chris? she seems really, really happy. >> she has a little extra pep in her step today. >> good morning, everybody. and welcome to september. the official beginning of fall. meteorological fall as we call it. the meteoric yesterday. so what can we think of and what is ahead? we expect it to be cooling off. it's not going to stay warm forever. the average highs go from 77 to 67. the surn set gets earlier and earlier. 7:17 today but 6:0027 by the end of the month and fall foliage begins far northern new england will be seeing some good color as we get toward the end of september.
