5:00 am
>> now on newscenter 5's "eyeopener." mike: we'll be talking about the rain moving through this morning. along with it gusty wind. looks like a pretty stormy sunday coming our direction. antoinette: breaking overnight. no winner in last night's the eyepopping jackpot that is doug: and ice rescue in brockton. two children stuck in a frigid pond. what it took to get them out. boston's news leader. good morning! this is newscenter 5's "eyeopener." doug: good morning, everybody. sunday, january 10. i'm doug meehan. antoinette: and i'm antoinette antonio.
5:01 am
prize. we're still here this morning. doug: we're here. antoinette: there was one ticket sold in boston that is worth a million bucks. doug: a measly million, mike. mike: i'll check my tickets now. there is a lot rain starting to move its way up. not only is it just rain. it's wind and record heat. we'll show you when the rain will get here. by 8:00 you'll see what's happening. scattered showers. then we really get hit later on this morning through the early afternoon. these are downpours we're talking about. possible. we finally wind things down later on tonight and the cold air comes roaring back in here. before it gets here, we've certainly got temperatures which are warm enough to support all rain. look at this warm air coming up with this system. already in the mid to upper 40's in some spots. we do have a couple of pockets of colder air. even though we have a little drizzle out there i'm not worried about any ice this morning. these temperatures just keep climbing and climbing.
5:02 am
that is a record for boston. that's why we say this is going to be a very unusual weather pattern. don't get used to it. look what happens tomorrow. high only 36. maybe bump up a little bit on tuesday. even colder temperatures on wednesday. winter is coming back. i'll detail how much wind you can expect and those wind advisories will be out around the area. all that coming up in a few moments. antoinette. antoinette: mike, thank you. breaking overnight. $1.3 billion. that is the new prize after no one won last night's powerball jackpot again. doug: that was billion-- with a "b." that's even bigger than the record $950 million prize that caused a frenzy of ticket sales across the country. one of those purchases-- here at the clarendon wine company in boston-- was lucky. the massachusetts state lottery says a customer there won a million dollars. not too shabby, but nothing close to the full jackpot. those winning numbers were 16-19-32-34-57 and powerball 13.
5:03 am
depending on how you look at it. you have to get all of them in order to win. again nobody picked those numbers. not even one of the 1,300 people in derry, new hampshire, who went in on a huge pool. no one was allowed to buy more than one ticket to keep things fair. but it was always a long shot. the odds of winning were about 1 in 292 million. the new billion dollar drawing is coming up on wednesday. we'll have the winning numbers on newscenter 5 at 11:00. antoinette: and we following more breaking news overnight. worcester police make an arrest in connection with a deadly hit and run. a man was struck and killed on a city street early yesterday morning. 21-year-old vincent green of west boylston is now in police custody. he is facing charges including leaving the scene of an accident and homicide by negligent operation. right now a boy has serious injuries after falling through thin ice.
5:04 am
water behind a school in brockton. the eye's juli mcdonald has more on the fast moves to get help >> we had called an blns. everybody was calling the fire department. calling the police. you know, he was still under. all the commotion. he's still under. juli: brockton neighbors describe the terrifying moments waiting for the second of two little boys to be pulled from an icy pond behind a school at plymouth and crescent streets. they said it all started as a dare while the young group was playing football nearby. >> one of them went on top of the ice and then the other one said if you go, i'll go. and then the nine-year-old fell in first and then the 12-year-old fell in. that's when my brother and my cousin went to go look for help. juli: one of the kids ran into traffic to stop an oncoming car for help our partners shared this photo with newscenter 5. the woman called 911. the man jumped into the icy water after the kids. >> the first individual who was like nine came out. he was fine.
5:05 am
a little bit shaken and blue in the face. a little bit of water coming out of his mouth and it was fine. juli: the neighbors said it wasn't until brockton firefighters arrived that the older of the two was rescued. they thought he was underwater 5-10 minutes longer. >> it was too cold so he had to come out. the other was still in. juli: there is a fire station just a block from here on crescent street. neighbors said when the firefighters did arrive the rescue was amazing. unfortunately though there were several minutes when the friends of these boys were running door to door trying to get help and for someone to call 911. in brockton juli mcdonald, wcvb, newscenter 5. antoinette: boston firefighters want to know what caused a three alarm fire in jamaica plain. the flames broke out at an apartment complex for the elderly on centre street. everyone inside was ordered to evacuate the four-story building. several streets in the area were also closed. one resident was taken to the hospital for evaluation. more than a dozen people have
5:06 am
doug: new this morning. an injured boston police officer is determined to get back to work. that's according to "the herald." it's reporting officer kurt stokinger is feeling better after being shot in the leg on friday in dorchester. the suspect, grant headley, will face charges tomorrow. police say he is a suspected drug dealer and was driving without a license when he was pulled over. that's when they say he got out and fired at stokinger. antoinette: the suspect in the ambush of a philadelphia police officer is now charged with attempted murder. edward archer is also charged with aggravated assault and is being held without bail. police say he ran toward officer jesse hartnett's patrol car last week while firing gunshots and even reached into the driver's side window. the officer was hit three times but survived. police say hartnett confessed saying he did it in the name of islam. >> i don't think he had anything to do with isis or the islamic state or anything like that. i think this was an impulsive act by somebody who wanted to make a mark for himself. antoinette: the attacked officer
5:07 am
was still able to chase hartnett. the suspect spent some time in egypt in 2013. but they are not calling this an act of terror. a new york city police officer is also recovering after being shot early yesterday morning. it happened while that officer was responding to a fight at a party in the bronx. police say a 19-year-old suspect with a long criminal record shot the officer four times hitting him in the leg. the shooting happened just three hours after he was released from jail on another charge. doug: the man accused of killing the girl once known as baby doe is due in court tomorrow. michael mccarthy will be arraigned on a murder charged in the death of bella bond. mccarthy is the boyfriend of bella's mother; she is charged as an accessory in the case. the body of the toddler was found in a plastic bag on deer island back in june. investigators worked for months to identify her remains. an anonymous tipster who exchanged letters with convicted killer aaron hernandez before
5:08 am
credible. that's according to a judge who just denied a defense motion. hernandez's lawyers wanted to further examine the tipster's claims that a juror was involved in a discussion about the killings. the former patriot was convicted of the murder of odin lloyd. he's awaiting trial on separate murder charges in boston. antoinette: commitment 2016 with new support for hillary clinton. today planned parenthood will formally endorse the democrat at a campaign event in manchester, new hampshire. it's the first time the nonprofit group has backed a candidate in a primary. that announcement follows some celebrity endorsements for clinton. soccer star amy wombach has been campaigning for clinton and joined her at event on friday. wombach says having a woman in the white house would change what young girls believe is possible. republican presidential candidate donald trump is also visiting the granite state. tomorrow morning he'll be at the castleton banquet and convention center in windham for a rally.
5:09 am
just less than a month away. doug: in fact, that first-in-the-nation primary is coming up on february 9. are ramping up their campaign strategies. it goes without saying this final push is critical for presidential hopefuls. if you live in new hampshire and haven't yet crossed paths with a primary candidate, that's all about to change this month. >> we're going to find candidates literally bumping into each other. people are going to be able to find candidates in the local businesses, the big rallies, pretty much anywhere. doug: for opportunities candidates can't scoop up, expect surrogates to be ralliyng in their place and volunteers to be making that one-on-one connection. the state. you'll hear those volunteers making more phone calls. they'll be knocking on your doors so that part is going to doug: plenty of voters still haven't made up their minds. so for the packed republican field, candidates will be working especially hard to
5:10 am
that matter to granite staters. >> that's jobs and the economy. that's national security. that's probably the heroin epidemic. those are the kinds of things that the candidates have to talk about in order to make those final connections. doug: experts also say negative tv ads will start coming on strong funded primarily by candidates' super pacs. but it's getting people to the polls that matters the most especially for the republicans. >> in a campaign on the republican side where the difference between second and fifth could be a couple of thousand votes, getting out the vote matters. doug: after new hampshire's primary, the republican field is expected to narrow down. experts say candidates who come in sixth or below likely drop out soon after. antoinette: the match is set. the patriots will host the kansas city chiefs next saturday in the afc divisional playoff game. and that is the result last night's ugly game between pittsburgh and cincinnati. here's the fourth quarter. this fumble gave the steelers
5:11 am
bengals. jeremy hill loses the ball giving the steelers some hope on the heels of two bengals touchdown. then personal fouls at the end put pittsburgh within field goal range. here's the kick with just 14 seconds left. the steelers win, 18-16. tough. doug: the kansas city game not much either. antoinette: that was a blow-out. the "t" is looking to take cost-saving action. doug: the audit that's sparking a crackdown on spending and where the transit agency is looking to cut. and a domestic flight to denver ends up landing across the border. the safety concern that diverted the flight. antoinette: severe weather down south. the storm system that's causing all kinds of damage in the region. mike: a warm but stormy today. but winter is making a comeback. my timeline for our next blast of cold air. doug: and breaking overnight. no big winners in last night's record-breaking powerball game. the jackpot now $1.3 billion dollars.
5:12 am
there was a $1 million ticket sold in boston. we will have more on the blockbuster jackpot all morning long on air, online, and on our mobile app. governors. but which governor won national praise for tough leadership handling nine hurricanes? which governor made his state number one in job creation? which governor led the fight to stop obamacare expansion in his state? and which governor laid out a tough plan to destroy isis months before the paris attacks? jeb bush. right to rise usa is responsible for the content of this message. and quit a lot, but ended up nowhere. now i use this. the nicoderm cq patch,

5:15 am
doug: welcome back. severe weather is causing some worries in the south. the national weather service confirms a tornado hit southwest florida late last night. the twister touched down in cape coral knocking out power to thousands of people and damaging some buildings. fortunately there are no reports of any injuries. antoinette: mississippi is also dealing with storm damage this morning. heavy rain and wind made a mess in marshall county. one trailer home was destroyed; another came off its foundation. fortunately no one lived in either of those homes. no one was hurt. doug: in missouri there's snow to deal with. forecasters say there won't be accumulation from any additional flakes. but cold is on the way there. wind chills were expected to bring the temperatures down to the single digits. we kind of know what that is is like. antoinette: we almost forgot. mike: all that stuff you're talking about is all headed this way. that's what's going to be giving us the rain today. it shows you how unstable the atmosphere is. antoinette: when do we have to duck and cover from the wind and the rain.
5:16 am
that's the heart of the storm. visibility. if you've walked out you probably noticed there's a bit of drizzle going on. we have visibility in many spots down below a half mile. in boston right now, 43 degrees. the temperature just keeps coming up because these easterly winds are starting to go in a southeastly direction dragging in warmer air. also we've got wind issues to deal with today. we have high wind warnings cape ann and cape cod. we have wind advisories inland. this is where we look for winds that gust 45-55. we could see gusts up here up close to 60 miles per hour. notice the high wind warning doafnt go into effect until 11:00 to 7:00 p.m. we're focusing on the afternoon for strongest winds right near the shoreline and especially as you look down toward the cape. martha's vineyard is tucked in that you won't have the stronger winds that you do in nantucket. where is this storm? there it is just on our back-doorstep. this thing is racing its way north ward dragging with it a lot of warm air. that's why today we'll have a
5:17 am
highs. but notice how you get a few scattered showers and then you get the downpours. not out of the question this afternoon we could have a rumble of thunder. let's break it down hour by hour and show you what's going to happen. 8:00 this morning we're start to go see scattered showers. most of the rain is really toward the west. then we go towards 10:00 this morning. notice what's happening here. downpours just starting to move in to the city. to the west you probably have already experienced it. by the way we're going to see 1-2 inches of rain out of this. i'm not looking for any river issues. that much water on the roadways you know there will be ponding going on. be careful. there's a big puddle there. you might want to slow down just a bit. by noon we're looking at downpours coming across the area. it stays that way through 2:00 this afternoon. around 4:00 or 5:00 most of this is pushing its way off shore. we'll start to taper off the rain inland but it will still on the windy side. by 6:00 the last of the showers are really working their way through. eventually we head into the overnight hours where the skies clear away. tomorrow lots of sunshine but it
5:18 am
highs only in the 30's. here's that rain i'm talking about. 1-2 inches possible especially as you get one of those downpours. you could pick up a couple of inches of rain out of this whole thing. do keep that in mind if you're driving around. the winds will be out of the south east at 10:30 this morning. the gusts will be stronger than that. as we head to this afternoon we're talking about steady winds of 30-40 miles per hour. those gusts potentially getting up around 60 miles per hour. the winds will start to switch around later on tonight. tomorrow they usher in the colder temperatures coming in. let me break it down for you in our search-day forecast and show you what's going to be happening. we have temperatures out there right now which are holding into the 40's. that's why i say we'll be dealing with conditions today where once again we'll be seeing high temperatures climbing up pretty much near record highs this afternoon. we'll be back into the 50's. something to keep in mind as we travel down the road. the fact that we may be seeing a little bit of light snow as we get into tuesday's forecast. tuesday's forecast tuesday night with a little bit of light snow but i think it will be working
5:19 am
we won't be dealing with too much of that. something to keep in mind for wednesday morning. there might be a few slippery spots out there. this afternoon we're talking about a lot of wet on to the roadways. antoinette and doug. antoinette: mike, thank you. 5:18. other stories we're following right now on the eye. doug: the mbta is now launching an audit into overtime payments and procedures. that review is expected to take several weeks. it comes after the mbta revealed payroll data showing the agency paid out $75 million in overtime last year. that's up from $61 million the previous year. more than 1,500 "t" employees earned six figures last year, including overtime. antoinette: a threat forcing an the united airlines flight was supposed to land in denver yesterday. but a few hours after takeoff, the crew decided to divert the flight after getting a threatening message from one of the passengers. there's no word on what that message was. but a person was taken into custody. doug: immigration is under fire in germany where anti-islam demonstrators conflicted with other protestors yesterday.

inland we have the wind advisories. the southeastly wind will start kicking in here later on this morning and especially this afternoon. we'll see the gusts perhaps up to 60 miles per hour. inland though it will be gusting around 55 miles per hour. the problem we have with this is that if a tree limb or something comes down because of that wind, falls a power line, you may lose power as you head through the day today. keep that in mind. otherwise we have this coming at us. it is just rain on top of rain. by 8:00 some scattered showers but by the time we get to noon we've got the downpours coming in. they'll be with us most of the afternoon. possibly even a rumble of thunder. i think the heart of the storm for boston right around 3:00 to 4:00 this afternoon. then we start to taper things off as we head toward the evening hours. eventually clearing things off. but, boy, the temperatures will really warm up nicely across the area. right now we're seeing 30's and 40's. look down to the south. you're already seeing temperatures near 50 and then nantucket is at 51 degrees right now. as the day goes on in the city of boston, i think we'll be going for that magic number of 56. that is our record high temperature for today.

but after months on the run, special forces finally catching up with joaquin guzman and the attorney general says that is thanks to el chapo himself and a healthy dose of vanity. apparently after his escape last year, the infamous criminal wanted a biopic made about him to his people reached out to local producers and actors. those communications helped track him down. the final showdown playing out in his home state. mexican marines raiding the house, killing five of el chapo's men and seizing these weapons including 50-caliber sniper rifles and grenade launchers. they finally caught up with guzman after he ran through vehicle. caught. mexican officials quickly declaring "mission accomplished." the u.s. department of justice calling the arrest a victory for the citizens much both mexico and the united states.

u.s. districts for murder and drugs but so far no word on extradition. el chapo could possibly be tried in federal court in concord, new hampshire. "5 investigates" found he was one of several people indicted following an elaborate f.b.i. sting involving cocaine. doug: police now say the mother of the so-called "affluenza" teen withdrew $30,000 before running off to mexico. they also say tonya couch cut ties with the boy's father. couch and her son ethan were arrested in mexico last month after he missed a meeting with his probation officer. ethan couch killed four people in a drunk-driving crash in 2013, but the defense argued he was too coddled by his rich parents to know better. >> now your storm team 5 forecast with meterologist mike wankum. antoinette: okay. 5:43 this morning. 45 degrees outside. you know, it's january. mike: it's january.
5:41 am
mike: you look towards detroit and milwaukee, it's snowing out there. what a mess. we have a lot of wind coming with this thing as well. antoinette: hold on to your hat. doug: winnie-the-pooh day. mike: the visibles are down. once the winds start kicking up, we'll get the visibility going up. if you're driving around this morning, you may ran into visibility issues because of the patchy fog and drizzle out there. that's early this morning. we'll have the wind blow it out of here. temperatures are above the freezing mark at almost every location. because of that, we're not worried about ice. yesterday morning we had a little bit of ice kind of going on with this. i think by the time it gets here it will be in the form of rain. nantucket is already up to 51 degrees. most of the temperatures down as you look toward the cape are already in the upper 40's. that's the warm air that is surging its way up. actually coming from an unusual direction from the southeast. in boston, looking for high temperature right around 55. the record high for today, 56. it has stood since 2000. the record high for worcester is 53 degrees. we're going to be very close to it as well. it will only take a minor wind
5:42 am
about record heat this afternoon. speaking of wind shifts look at what we've got going on. we have a wind advisory in here. this is where i'm looking for the southeastly winds to be 45-5 5 miles per hour gusts. if you're looking at cape ann or cape cod near the ocean you have nothing to resist that wind. so you get those very strong wind gusts perhaps as much as 60 miles per hour. could be scattered power outages as we head through the afternoon. here comes the main storm system. as you look at it, there's the leading edge already starting to make its way into hartford and springfield areas and lifting its way up along the south coastal areas. for most of you it won't be very long. you'll start to see it ramping up as we head towards 8:00. more scattered showers coming in. 10:00, it's just really wet out there. if you're going to be doing any kind of outdoor activity, maybe you want to go for a jog, do it right now. as we head through the morning and into the afternoon it's downpour after downpour coming through. by noon the heavy downpours. by 2:00 there's heavy downpours. here you start to see the end of it.
5:43 am
there will still be a little bit of it hanging around in the evening hours but basically winding the rain down as we head into the overnight skies. the skies will clear away. tomorrow lots of sunshine. i wish we had the sunshine today with these temperatures but tomorrow with the sunshine it will be chilly out there. rainfall totals will run from 1-3 inches. the biggest issue is ponding on the roadways. be careful you don't hydroplane the car. the winds ramp up as we head through the morning hours into the afternoon hours. watch how they switch around and go to a westerly direction. that ushers in the cooler air that we're talking about moving in for tomorrow. let me break it down for you in the search-day forecast and show you what's going to happen. 56 today. only 36 degrees tomorrow. then on tuesday i've got a chance of seeing some snow. i think the day is fine on tuesday but this little alberta clipper comes through. perhaps tuesday night we could see a little bit of light snow or light mix out of the whole thing. a little bit on wednesday morning. then the cold temperatures come right back at us thursday and friday. plenty of sunshine but only in
5:44 am
so look at the temperatures. today is 56. the rest of the week we're into the 20's and 30's. that's why i say winter is on its way back. vengeance. snow. just that little bit tuesday night into wednesday morning. right now it looks like it will develop more off shore than anything he will. we'll keep you posted on that one. doug and antoinette. antoinette: mike, thank you. it's 5:47. other stories we're following right now. doug: upset in kosovo. protestors threw petrol bombs at capital yesterday. police responded with tear gas. the demonstration was against an e.u.-brokered agreement on improving relations with serbia. that deal gives greater autonomy to serbian cities and towns antoinette: president barack obama has invited a syrian refugee to attend his state of the union address. 55-year-old refaai hamo-- who now lives in detroit-- will sit with first lady michelle obama. the move is meant to show the president opposes republican efforts to slow or block refugees from entering the country. you can watch the state of the

mike: temperaturewise today is really looking like a very nice day but we've got a lot of wind-driven rain to go along with it. i don't think you'll get a chance to enjoy it. tomorrow the sunshine is back but the temperature is only 36 degrees. we do have snow coming in tuesday night. it looks like a quickly moving alberta system. it moves very quickly so i don't look for any major accumulation out of that. maybe just a dusting more than anything else. we start to head towards the end of the week. by the way, doug, you were talking about the game being messy. the game this week coming up on saturday don't look very mess uwe but it does look cold. 28 degrees. it's technically a day game because the sunset is after the start of i. antoinette: slightly after it. it's been said that an army marches on its stomach. the right diet can be as important as a rifle when it comes to winning on the battlefield. lab is looking for your help designing the next high-tech

meatballs and marinara sauce. chicken with tomato and feta cheese. these m.r.e.'s or "meals ready to eat" sound good and tasty but how good are they for fueling our fighting forces? >> it's not about taste. it's about continually improving the nutritionally qualities of the m.r.p.'s. doug: dr. phil karl is heading up a study at the natick soldier research, development, and engineering center. the goal-- to determine how m.r.e.'s like "mango peach applesauce" can affect the nutritional needs of our soldiers sailors and airmen. the lab is looking for 40 volunteers between the ages of 18 to 62 willing to eat these prepackaged morsels and then record how it affects their system. >> what we'll do with that information is tart to get an understand of what's going on. then we can identify more targeted approaches for nutrients to add to the m.r.e.'s in ways that we think would be beneficial. doug: something to keep in mind
5:52 am
these m.r.e.'s are the only thing you'll be able to eat over the course of that study. that's for 21 days. not bad. dr. phil says all of these meals already meet the highest of nutritional values. they're just trying to improve on that. >> nurturing the body starts in the gut. the gut is really the first line of defense for anything being ingested. we want to maintain that barrier and keep it as strong as possible for soldiers on the field. antoinette: you said not bad. doug: not great but not bad. what's interesting is they actually, they load 'em up with a lot more calories because of the strenuous activity of being a soldier. antoinette: 21 days though. doug: water and black coffee also the only thing you can drink. we have a link by the way if you're interested in taking that study we have a link on our we
