randy: cindy needs a little water. cindy: you know, there's some rain, a little water, coming on us. emily: what do you think? cindy: i think southeastern massachusetts has the best chance, but a lot of us will see a shower today. grab an umbrella as you head out back to work back to school after the long holiday weekend. here's a closer look at the radar right now. most of us aren't seeing anything just yet but that whole area of rain is lifting north ward. there's even been some thunder. you can see the lightning strike in the waters just east of the tip of long island. not out of the question that there's a rumble this morning especially down along the south coast and the cape. we do have that shower threat today but it's still mild. the cooldown begins toward the middle of the week. and it gets progressively colder into the weekend so that by monday morning, there could be a hard freeze across the area. the coldest air of the season will be working on in. contrast that to what you're
run inning the mid to upper 50's to around 60 degrees. clouds have come in and more of a southerly wind. the temperatures aren't as chilly as they have been the past few mornings. that southerly wind has brought in a little bit of fog. we're seeing fog reducing visibility. down on the cape and the islands especially but there are patches of fog elsewhere. just use caution as you're heading out this morning. you see how the clouds have been spreading up from the south. here comes that little area of rain. it's a low pressure center that is racing north ward pretty quickly. this isn't the only thing we're tracking today. off to the west you can see there's another line of showers. this is actually associated with the cold front. this is going to be pressing toward us this afternoon and this evening. on the other side of that front, look at the temperatures. we go from the 50's and 60's down into the 40's back toward minneapolis so there is some cooler air that's going to start to build in behind that frontal boundary. today is a mild day. even though we've got a lot of cloud cover with that southerly wind about 5-15 look how the temperatures come up into the low 70's in most spots. 73 boston. upper 60's for you with that wind off the water on cape cod.
let me take you through the timeline. you watch that area of showers come up from the south this morning. notice how it is focused mainly in southeastern massachusetts but this whole area will be lifting north ward so eastern massachusetts through about 10:00 or 11:00 this morning, that is your window of seeing a shower from this first batch of moisture. it moves out by lunchtime. clouds with breaks of sunshine through most of the afternoon. by 5:00 p.m., that line of showers off to the west still off to the west. as it moves toward us this evening, a lot of the showers are going to fall apart so there is the risk of seeing a shower early tonight especially before midnight and then the winds shift to the west behind that front. temperatures drop into the 40's and 50's overnight. and no more 70's coming up tomorrow. 60's. a blend of clouds and sunshine. and the wind shifts more to the evening. that will bring in even cooler temperatures by thursday. so we're stepping down in the mid 60's tomorrow. only near 60 on thursday. and look at that on friday. upper 50's for highs. another front is going to approach the area. this one is likely going to
bring in some showers during the afternoon and evening hours. behind it, you've got it. the coldest air of the season working on in. high temperature on saturday with a gusty breeze. lower 50's. bright sunshine only in the upper 40's for highs on sunday. likely some frost sunday morning. but by monday morning the potential for a hard killing freeze across the area. yeah, these 70's one more day. enjoy it. we won't see them again for a while. olessa: what a great thing to wake up to. if you're heading out the door right now a live look outside. zakim bridge. leverett connector. not seeing any overnight construction we're used to. that's a bit of good news. it is a quiet start so you're in good shape right now heading out the door. no problems into boston. south of town nice and quiet. 24, route 3, 95 all getting by at the speed limit. problem-free ride along the pike well. from new hampshire. trains and buses are expected to randy. randy: topping economic headlines this morning.

incident. randy: a response to a traffic accident in tennessee is getting a lot of attention on social media. sarah ray's wedding day took a very unexpected turn. her mother snapped plenty of pictures that day, but the one that stands out is a moment that was never planned. after her grandmother's car collided with another on the way to the reception, ray, a paramedic, hiked up her dress, rushed to the scene and climbed aboard the ambulance. >> i just have to laugh because i know the face i'm giving my mom like, "really, mom? are you really taking a picture? randy: sara's 72-year-old grandmother was sent to the hospital while the reception went on. she says she didn't do anything special. she was just making sure her grandmother was okay and just happened to be in a wedding dress. emily: just do her thing. randy: this morning we're following breaking news out of missouri. emily: two firefighters were killed while battling a fire in kansas city.
