and do what's necessary if need be. >> reporter: it's images like this that have many on plum island worried about hurricane joaquin. >> it was 2012, 2013 when that house went in and the house on the other side went in and our deck was ripped off. >> reporter: the winds off plum island are pretty intense. this has homeowners preparing for anything that comes their way. >> pull them up so they don't wash out and get all the things that can blow under cover but nothing much you can do. except hunker down. >> reporter: those living on the island say they don't want to relive these images. >> there's nothing that can prepare you for that kind of feeling of losing your house or losing your belongings and everything that's, you know, you have sort of built up around you. >> reporter: over ins exthese two brothers tell fox 25 they're pulling in town girl for the season and afraid she'll get

and up through plymouth, some of the moderate rainshowers, same thing for worcester, extends through middlesex county around lowell up toes sex and that plum island why are. this is just some rain from the front yesterday bowing back northward toward us as areas of low pressure ripple along that stalled front. nothing to do with qua queen, but we are gonna talk about that storm in just a moment. there's more rain to our south, will come along this front and you'll expect a wet day tomorrow. heaviest will be south of boston. you'll see that with futurecast but the rain will come farther north from time to time. kind of going back and forth over us but eventually the front lifts right into southern new england pictured early saturday morning where there will still be showers around monday morning and we'll see through with rain gear in hand but a raw feel to the weekend. we will dry out sunday and things look better. winds are whipping out there coming in at 35 miles per hour
piled up against the shoreline and next flood advisory tomorrow afternoon although there is a high tide in the early-morning hours, just a minor splashover there. look at, this temperatures in the 50s with rain tomorrow all across the area. quincy 54. bridgewater 54. a chance of breaks of sun the farther north and west you go. but still 57 in attleboro and loudoun and 51 in worcester with likely rain tomorrow, this is joaquin. major hurricane, still hitting the bahamas, still has winds at 130 miles per hour, jogging to the west at 3 miles per hour. >> tuesday evening it won't matter. yes it will send some big waves toward the coast, swells towards the coast and likely give us rough seas that, would be the extent it on a track like this or farther east like the
the effects become more. of course we'll monitor future tracks and the movement of joaquin and let you know if it's going to become an issue but all of the computer models have been congregating more out here. so this track i think is no longer in play. the one that's farther out to sea is the one that's most likely from here on out and the one that's we're going with as center. here's the seven-day forecast with that good news in there. weekend. but saturday is northwest of boston and worcester and really into vermont and new hampshire, otherwise, temperatures staying in the 50s and into tuesday case joaquin came close. up next, tom brady finally gets some love from the nfl. i'll explain and the bruins address the ridiculousness of coach julienne's status and how 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, and bluecross blueshield has me. there's a better way to specialized surgery that's right for you: lahey hospital and medical center. cardiac teams pioneering innovative treatments... and neurosurgeons at the forefront of spinal surgery... america's largest live-donor liver transplant program... right now. and quality outcomes among the nation's best... the right outcomes... for who matters most. lahey hospital and medical center specializing in you. here in vineland, home of progresso, we love all kinds of chicken soups... but just one kind of chicken. white breast meat chicken every
single in to run, 2-1, the sox. top of the seventh, same score, run on first and he almost gives the sox the lead with one swing of the bat. the yankee add a couple more, get the win 4-1 and clinch a play-off spot. the red sox managerial update, the word is john ferrel will be the sox manager next season if he's healthy despite a bad season 28 didn't 16. kind of a head scratcher but the sox lasted 2014. this season they were last, 14 games under 500. torres led the team. the most shocking set fourth worst under pharaoh and fourth best under novello. i know what else brady is other than a corn ball with a hot
brady's numbers are listed ridiculous, 11,112 and 9 touchdowns. 0 picks. hasn't won a behavior the week yet this season. so now looking deeper. no other quarterback has over 950 and brady has 92 completions which is an nfl record in 3 games and the player of the month is his eighth tied with peyton manning for most all time. a lot of pressure for the black and gold but for the first time in julienne's tenure he's coming off a season that the bs did not make the play-offs. so he's in the hot seat already?
he'd like to see the team play. the coach could be on the hot seat at some point. it's unclear. >> kind of crazy. the steelers, ravens tied right now and the bruins opened up the season october 8th at home versus winnipeg. should be pretty cool. can't wait. >> and weather-wise you can definitely feel it's a season for that. there's the storm piling on too. >> i had someone tweet me earlier saying it's freezing outside. not quite. but it is chilly. >> it is going to be cool. temperatures in the 50s for high temperatures, right through the weekend. major hurricane joaquin is in doing damage tonight. that's an immense storm. they're getting hit hard. fortunately, i suppose if you want a silver lining this is some of the lesser inhabited islands, not some of the major islands but still that's a ridiculous storm right now. 130 mile-per-hour winds.
but getting we mom this is hugely important. is there anywhere in your house i can get a good signal? anyway, you were saying. it's a tragic love story. i love tragedy. what is that noise? what? i'm on set. what movie? i'm shooting a movie about laundry. leave slow internet behind. a movie about laundry? yeah the 100% fiber optics network gives you the fastest wi-fi available when you need it the most. get out of the past. get fios. well, well. if it isn't the belle of the ball. you look well. what's new, flo? went missing last week. name your what, now? it gives you coverage options based on your budget. whoever stole it knows that it only works at progressive.com. so, you can't use it to just buy stuff? no. i'm sorry, gustav. we have to go back to the pet store.
