6:19 am
and coming through and lasting very long. but i did want everyone to be aware. we could have sprinkles moving into manchester shortly of over to nashua after 6:30. these are hanging around in western worcester county. so we're getting a bit steadier activity in athol up toward keene as well. steadier light rain. nothing is going to amount to maybe more of .10 inch of rain. pretty quiet. as you go to the going to be tougher and tougher to receive any rain today. let me show you future cast. this is right now, the initialized version and it looks overdone. you see the green painted all across the area. we're going to take it with a grain of salt. but the theme to bring showers through any time during the noontime hours. plan on that shot shower. west of boston a better chance. here's the cold front i showed
6:20 am
through northern new england. out ahead of that, a better chance of a couple heavier showers through the afternoon. again, north of boston a better chance to get damp. all right. let's take a look at those numbers. not bad right now. lower 40s to the upper 30s as we're starting out the day. and our winds are calm. so it doesn't feel as raw as it did. in fact, yesterday, our temperatures in the 40s in the afternoon. with all of the winds, we had, made it worse. the winds mu turned out of the southwest, hour by hour, planner for worcester, temperatures out of the 30s and 40s, up around 50 degrees by noontime, climbing into the low 50s. still a lot of clouds around. again, that spot shower chance. but overall, a milder day compared to yesterday afternoon. into boston we go, there will be that rain chance out there, only about 30% and temperatures climb near 50 this afternoon and continue to climb into the middle 50s between 2:00 and 4:00
6:21 am
afternoon. all about that wind direction. remember that warm front coming by and we get a southwesterly wind flow today. despite the clouds, seasonal temperatures in the mid and upper 50s. overnight tonight, around 50 degrees most spots. with a chance of a shower early tomorrow in the morning hours with the front. and then the front installs to our south on sunday afternoon. so i do have to mention a slight chance of rain favoring our sunday squares on sunday afternoon. it all clears out for monday. breezy, clearing, mid 50s, with some cool readings for trick-or-treaters. back with more coming up. >> jason: speaking of, a little boy becomes a rock star every year. the new ride that gets a lot of attention this halloween.

7:21 am
the proulx. but that will be replaced by clouds. then wrap up in the afternoon. depending on the next batch that comes through. over all trend, southwesterly winds, middle 50s, milder than yesterday despite lots of clouds and chance for rain. overnight, not a cold night. here's a look at future cast, this warm front is a chance for showers to come through the boston, a better chance to get wet this afternoon. then it's dry this evening for your night time plans. dinner time and that kind of thing. tomorrow morning, with this front right on top of us. the model not showing any rain. but i do want to mention a slight chance of a shower on sunday morning. i'll be here to watch it for you. and on sunday afternoon. with this low pressure swinging by to our south, it might be later but i do think it might be a chance, 30%.

9:09 am
now a top aid to clint the only. clinton says she has no ideas what those e-mails contained. a political expert tells fox 25, the e-mails likely won't taint clinton's campaign, they could spark new accusations that the election is rigged. >> i think a lot of democrats will come to the conclusion that this is a political move. that in a sense, the fbi has been weaponized by the republicans. given what donald trump has already said about a fixed election, now we'll have democrats saying it's a r is the big loser today. >> heather: whalen says this is a prime example of why it's important not to just like the presidential candidate but also like their running mate when you vote. if clinton wins the election but were to be indicted, of course tim cane would take over as the oval office. as the news of the latest fbi probe broke, donald trump was taking the stage in new hampshire. he told supporters there, the
