in manchester, new hampshire. there are two confirmed cases and three pending. all of them are players on the men's hockey team. symptoms of the virus include fever, severe headache, sore throat, and vomiting. while nearly all college students are vaccinated for mumps, the vaccine is only 88 percent effective so it's still possible to get sick. any future cases are expected to be mild, but doctors want to be proactive to protect those who are more vulnerable on campus. >> we do want to prevent this from spreading to other individuals who may not being totally immune, people who may not be able to get the vaccine. that includes pregnant women or people compromised which can result in more serious infection. saint a's students are now off campus for spring break. typically the mumps incubation is 25 days, so the school is in that window now which does help lower the risk factor. karen: thanks, frank. for anyone on spring break, danielle and doug are here right now with a look at the weather.
doug, you go over and hang out with danielle. will you? danielle: and i've got this on. it feels like spring break because it's warm. doug: isn't it nice. danielle: i'm enjoying it. we are in the 50's or going to the 50's, not there yet. we will be for this afternoon. i do want to talk about something though. with the mild air comes the chances for some rain. the first chances actually coming tomorrow late morning into early afternoon. then again late night on tuesday. this will become steady, heavy rain on wednesday. widespread too so everybody is impacted. and it could even end as some light snow especially the farther north and west you are. more on that chance a little bit. but first that rain for tomorrow morning coming from this cold front. this area of low pressure you see right now. we already have some snow showers ongoing in parts of northern vermont. closer to southern new england, just some clouds out there today but we're going to see these clouds break apart later this
that should lead to more sunshine by, say, 2:00 or 3:00. but a cloudy start out there over boston. 38 degrees. the wind out of the south and west at 11:00 so you see that camera shaking just a bit. if you're stepping outside right now, it feels more like 30 degrees. we have wind gusts in excess of about 20 in beverly to about 23 miles an hour in hyannis so pretty strong winds out there today. the temperatures though will warm up into the low 50ings in worcester and orange. low to even mid 50's along parts of merrimack valley and the north shore. boston 52. 52 in taunton. in the upper 40's on the cape. then tonight eighths mild night. we only drop back into the 30's and 40's. we'll have a partly cloudy sky and tomorrow as that frontal system comes through, we are leaving in a chance for some rain. it will be hit or miss though. not everyone is going to see it. notice we stay in the 50's closer to the coast. the only exception is the interior could stay in the upper
will get to you sooner and cool back the temperatures so here we go. 8:00 in the morning. vermont seeing a couple of showers. by 11:00 though it's in worcester county and metro west, i think. by 1:00 probably boston. by 2:00 or 3:00 exiting the cape and the islands. and then here comes the second cold front. this second cold front is going to bring in a little bit of cooler air but not cold by any means. and then we're watching this area of low pressure out to the west. you see this one here. this is going to gather some moisture from the gulf of mexico so as this gets to our area overnight tuesday into wednesday , it's going to bring a bit of heavy, steady rain. that will continue pretty much all day wednesday and may turn over at the tail end especially north and west of worcester i think through the berkshires into a little bit of snow. not looking for anything in terms of accumulation but in terms of rain totals from this one anywhere from about a half an inch to an inch does look likely from this system. and then on friday, this is the big thing.
because not every model is indicating this yet. it's still several days out. there is one of our models that we trust in the wintertime. it is showing the potential for a coastal storm to develop and strengthen and it will be cold enough to support all snow pretty much for our area. this could be accumulating snow starting friday afternoon into saturday morning, the best bet, of course, was the coastal storm would be southeastern mass. of course, as we're still seven days out we're going to continue to fine tune that forecast. in the meantime let's just settle in on those 50's. karen and doug. doug: a good idea. karen: we'll take it. 8:17. stories we're following right now. doug: three middle school girls in florida are now charged with trying to poison their teacher. police say one of the girls distracted the teacher while the other two put crushed red pepper in her soda. after taking a drink, the teacher began choking and experienced shortness of breath. police say the 12-year-olds were angry because one of them was disciplined by that teacher.

cost of annual passes. >> now sportscenter 5 with bob halloran. bob: good morning, everyone. the celtics fighting for home-court advantage, and finally home court is an advantage. back in january, the celtics' home record was a game under .500. now they've won ten straight at home. their win over miami yesterday gives them a two-game lead over the heat for third place in the eastern conference. marcus smart with the pass to evan turner. turner tying the game at 28. turner with 14 points and nine assists. here is his alley-oop to jae crowder. the celtics trail by three at the break though. stays close most of the rest of the way but the celtics gradually took control of the game. marcus smart underhanded in a good way. celtics led by 5. and at last tied the game 82-82. from there celtics 22-7. zoeller with the dunk, and the c's win 101-89. the bruins are in tampa bay, if they were in tampa bay, they'd be all wet.

hollywood. mark rylance, up for best supporting actor for "bridge of spies," is a supporter of palestinian causes. rylance says he won't accept any gift; but most other nominees have been silent about the swag bag and the controversy. and of course, you can watch it all right here tonight. coverage of the 88th academy awards starts at 7:00. >> now your storm team 5 forecast with meteorologist danielle vollmar. doug: i know we're going to be talking weather but i'm rooting for sly stallone tonight. i'm hoping he wins. danielle: he needs the spotlight. all right. we know what else we can pick is this weather. it's fabulous. this morning there's a little bit of clouds. it's cooler. but by the afternoon, folks, you're going to thank me. 52 degrees to the mid 50's in some locations. mid to upper 50's for your monday. tuesday right around 50 degrees and in the upper 40's on
remember, we should be running around 31 degrees this time of year. so anything above that is above average. and in the month of february, we've been above average. in fact, running about two degrees above average. even though yesterday was below average. today we'll make it up for it as well as tomorrow. probably going to finish out this season pretty warm. for that winter. as you look at boston right now, it is shaking, the camera, that is, because the winds are out of the south and west at 11. you can feel those winds pretty much all day long. creating a bit of a wind chill so it feels more like 30 degrees in boston right now. but as we get towards, say, 2:00 or so, more sunshine appears. that should help warm our temperatures up into the low to even mid 50's in a lot of spots. 55 waltham. 54 degrees in burlington. 54 in lowell. in fact, in bedford, it will be 54 degrees and tomorrow around the same temperature. then on tuesday still in the low 50's but notice there is a chance of some rain tomorrow. we're going to talk more about
now, through the interior, we're talking low 50's to mid 50's. low to mid 50's along the south shore, too. the only exception is the cape and the islands may stay in the upper 40's today but it's a mix of sun and clouds becoming more sunny as we head through the afternoon. here is that next rain chance, i talked about for monday. it's a cold front, area of low pressure. so it kind of looks like this but 8:00 in the morning a couple of showers maybe out in western mass, southern vermont. but by 11:00 or 12:00, they've now entered metro west. boston is up next around lunchtime or so, 1:00. then southeastern mass may see a couple more through the early afternoon hours before we clear out. then we watch this second cold front. this will bring in cooler air and turn those winds to the north and west for tuesday. you're going to feel them because they'll pick up in intensity. then we watch this area of low pressure here to the south. this is going to be gaining some strength and a lot of moisture from the gulf of mexico so this
maker coming in overnight tuesday into wednesday. so let's time everything out for you. again you notice i say mostly rain because what happens is it's going to start off as rain as it goes right over us. then the second wave will develop along it, bringing in a more steady period of rain but also bringing down colder air which means i think north and west of boston or actually worcester, i think, is where you could see a brief period of some snow at the tail end of it. not looking for much. if anything at all in terms of accumulation. then on friday, we are watching the potential for some snow accumulation. this is from a coastal storm, of course, remember, this is five or six days out now. a lot can change. not every model is indicating this. one of the ones we do trust is showing the potential for a strengthening storm to come by our coastline and as it does it will be cold to support snow. looks like maybe friday afternoon into saturday. it could be accumulating snow, believe it or not, for some.
not over just yet. let's enjoy the 50-degree temperatures this week end. doug? doug: all right, danielle. let's talk hoops. the celtics fighting for home-court advantage, and advantage. back in january, the celtics' home record was a game under .500. now, they've won 10 straight at home, and their win over miami yesterday gives them a two-game lead over the heat for third place in the eastern conference. turner with 14 points and nine assists. the c's beat the heat 101-89. karen: the denver broncos will reportedly be seeking out a new quarterback.
