>> now your stormteam 5 forecast with meteorologist mike wankum. antoinette: we had just a fantastic day. you were sleeping. it was perfect. low humidity, sunny. and today we're getting that rain. mike: finally. remember the sunrise yesterday morning? just gorgeous. todd: saw it on tv. [laughter] mike: so did you. we still have a sunrise this morning, but not as dramatic as yesterday. it will be overcast. sun rise in another 15 minutes or 17, it goes to 7:00 a.m. we're still losing about two minutes and 49 seconds of daylight every single day. today we say hello to rain. we have showers starting to build up. notice this line has developed in the last hour or so. it's light stuff. one or two of us are getting decent rain. it's lining up just to the west of 495, drifting eastward. no lightning or thunder.
6:16 am
boston, and we have cloud cover. a little peek of sunshine here or there. there's more rain out to the west. today's rain really kind of scattered showers more than anything else. a shower here, a shower there. can't guarantee it's going to happen. a lot of us won't get anything out of it. there's better opportunity for seeing steady rain. that threat will be with us all the way through tomorrow morning. that's our best opportunity for seeing scattered showers out humid air is really flowing in here. you notice that. it's muggier than yesterday morning. a cold front out to the west. showers out ahead of it. until that front passes us late tomorrow, we have chances of rain in the forecast. we head to the morning today, we get a lot of gray skies in here and a few breaks in it. this afternoon we get more scattered showers starting to develop. hit or miss variety. have to wait until later on tonight before we see a good line of showers and thunderstorms develop.
6:17 am
way in. that's why i think overnight tonight you may have a rumble of thunder and that chance for showers will be around as we talk about most of your monday as well. a gray day. a few nice showers out of the whole thing. 1/2 inch to an inch of rain will be falling in this thing. we have a southwesterly wind at 13. there's that dew point into the mid 60's right now. today,re here or there. temperature around 80 degrees. tomorrow, thunderstorms in the forecast. the best chance is going to be during the morning hours. here's the way it looks at 6:00 in the morning as we head through the day. notice the showers push eastward and move all the way across the area. then as we head towards tuesday, maybe a spot shower left over early. about 82 degrees. wednesday, humidity drops off. you know, it's very muggy out there right now. it will stay muggy tomorrow and then really drop off into a very comfortable range when we talk
6:18 am
and i made a mistake earlier in the newscast. the autumnal equinox is not in the afternoon. it's in the morning. 10:21, meaning equal day, equal night. 12 hours of each. after that, plenty of sunshine back into the forecast. could be a spot shower on friday with brings in cool air. next weekend looking like it will feel more like fall with temperatures barely getting 70 degrees. so we have some rain in the forecast. it's not a drought-buster, but it's welcome. keep in mind, tomorrow the rain threat out there. todd and antoinette? todd: thank you. back 18. we're following more breaking news. antoinette: at least eight people are injured after a stabbing attack at a minnesota mall. the attacker was shot and killed by an off-duty police officer. the eight injured suffered nonlife-threatening injuries. the attacker made references to allah. the motive is unclear. they have declined to call it terrorism. todd: a charter bus crash in

6:46 am
thunder. but this line will march eastward. those of you who have sunshine, it will fade away as we get to the cloud cover this afternoon. a break and another batch starting to come through the berkshires. widening out the view, not only do we have these two bands here. we have developments in parts of pennsylvania. this is also lifting its way up. yool see spot showers. there's a better opportunity through tomorrow morning that we get more steady rains across the area and perhaps overnht humid air is flowing in over the top of us right now. there's a frontal boundary way off west. this is all happening out ahead of it. that's going to be with us all day today. we have a chance of showers again tomorrow and it may linger into tuesday morning. that is welcome news. it only looks like 1/2 inch to an inch of rain before it's over with. you see the cloud cover thickens up as we head to the afternoon. i do think the shower activity we see right now is going to fade away as we head to the afternoon.
6:47 am
there. then we start to heat things back up again as we head towards 4:00, 5:00 this evening. midnight is when you see activity off to our west start to march its way eastward. tomorrow morning during the commute, we'll be seeing downpours. that may slow travel down just a little bit. the threat of showers lingers into tomorrow afternoon. the trend is pushing down to the southeast even though out west there could be a few showers. rainfall totals not real impressive but better than we've most areas. again, just one of those areas where you might get an inch there and 1/4 inch there. but overall, i think all of us will be seeing some rain over the next 48 hours. here's the way it looks over the next seven days. tomorrow is a high-impact weather day because of those downpours and the morning commute may slow down. a few lingering showers on tuesday giving way to sunshine and the first day of fall arrives on thursday. 76 degrees. low humidity.
