72 in boston, well above the average of 64 not close to that record though set back in 2011. but temperatures will be dropping overnight tonight. in fact, we're still quite mild 64 degrees the dew points in the upper 60s. we have some lower clouds out there. we notice that wind direction now out of the west. really breezy all day gusting over 40 in some spots. but now we're starting to see that wind out of the west northwest. starting to pick up and it will remain active overnight tonight helping to clear out the clouds and bring in some cooler air. also, pushing the rain away. this is all that's left now just a few showers pushing off of nantucket as well as so we're starting to see improvement heading our way. we'll continue to do so overnight as those winds will break apart the cloud cover. so anticipating to see sunshine when you wake up tomorrow. it will just be on the cooler side in fact we're going to be talking about temperatures mainly in the upper 40s and 50s for the cape. but back to the north and
winds will still be out of the west northwest about 10 miles per hour but then dying down as we continue through the day. so it's going to be very comfortable in the afternoon. it's going to be cool. perfects starting in the 40s climbing into the 50s by 10:00. getting stuck in the 50s in boston by the afternoon. some spots though could touch into that 60-degree mark. definitely going to feel like fall. but as winds fall light it's still going to be a really nice day. the warmup heads our way as we head into sunday and even monday. so temperatures in the 50s on saturday. we jump into the 60s with a few more clouds out there. as high pressure will continue to push to the east. in fact, one thing i want to point out before we get to this warmup overnight saturday into sunday temperatures are going to drop it's going to be a chilly night with high pressure in control light winds with clear skies. we could see some temperatures early on sunday into the 30s so there could somebody patchy frost very chilly start. but then that wind comes out
of the southwest and warms us up quite nicely. so that's we're anticipating that jump back into the 60s. so all around the new england area if you have plans this holiday week looking pretty fantastic. we're finally starting to see the foilage turn across southern new england. a little bit later then we usually see but peak conditions out through parts of vermont and we're looking at some good color through parts of maine as well as parts of new hampshire. if you are traveling of this holiday week the cape and islands perfects in the 50s and 60s. lots of sunshine on saturday on your sunday. if you are travelling northward that's when you will see that jump from the the 70s. in fact, i want to take a forecast for you. you will see that in the boston area, too. anticipating temperatures right around the lower 70s. remember, we are usually right around 64 for this time of year. so your monday forecast goes like 60s for the cape, 70s elsewhere. our next chance of showers arrives late on tuesday. then you will see
temperatures drop back to where we should be a few more clouds in the afternoon through the rest of the week. there's the latest look at your forecast. >> all right, sarah. former red sox aces duel it out in the playoffs. i'll have those highlights plus, a preview of b.c.'s next test. but the headliner is mike mullins in our fox 25 game day.
well, there's a reason why tom brady and the patriots are very good and seldom have letdowns. coach belichick refuses to let his team overlook anyone even though a team who is missing its best two offensive players. >> we got off to a decent start this year so you all got to keep it going. we got to sustain good practices, good games, good weeks see if we can just keep building. this team could easily be 4-0 they're playing at home. got a lot of good players very talented team. teams in football. >> these type of games that's what you look forward to as a football player. good competition. >> reporter: all right, some playoff baseball action. the cubs cardinals lester versus lackey tonight. john lackey was a bit better than lester. lackey he also had five
strikeouts on the night. but lester also goes seven and third with more strikeouts nine, but lester also gave up more hits including this monster shot. nine hits on the night he gave up. lackey wins the battle of the johns. the cardinals win the game 4-0. game two of the blue jays in the rangers. toronto the highest scoring team in baseball. a lot of home runs but it was with with the rangers getting it done together. go ahead single. rangers add another take a 2-0 series lead with a 6-4 win. now, the eagles back at it versus b.c. will definitely do well if they give some good play from the quarterbacks the two headed monsters. >> they're just working hard just like all of us out here. they're really just trying to do whatever they can to help this team. they're trying to step up and trying to be a leader. >> they're talented young players but then again
they're young you can really see them maturing they bounce back and make a play themselves. they're doing good. they're doing fine in my eyes. doing fine in my eyes as well. tonight game day geo dub our first affair. cheerleaders were troopers pregame out there in the rain. town celebrity mike mullins hung out then sang the national anthem. a good one out there. homecoming for the hillers. quarterback jack baret had himself a night beautiful pass. hillers were no chump they came back stan layman he's no lame man, nice run though. 21-7 hillers kmrping back but matt liner look-alike mr. barrett to everett holliston wins this one 35-14 and they remain undefeated on the season.
