idea to protect you from that this morning, and notice through noon, no big improvements. you are going to need patience today but lingering clouds with us through lunchtime, and then during the afternoon the skies do brighten up and the temperatures will respond to that. so by lunch type maybe a few breaks of sunshine. we're in the 70s. and then during the afternoon we're going to jump into the 80s. about 80 to 85 on average. inland, nashua 85, but right along the coastline, in the 70s, with the light we're waiting for are the remnants for hermine to kick out of here, and once they do, this front off to the west, becomes a focus of what we're dealing with. there are showers and storms lined up and that's going to work on in, so tonight it stays very sticky, upper 60's to 70, and if you have evening plans, you are ok. and during the overnight as that front goes through there is a small chance that we get a passing shower or a rumble of thunder. once it crosses the area less
6:16 am
brighten up, and it's going to heat up. temperatures making that run to 90 degrees coming up on friday, and it is going to be not quite as hard of hearing over the course of the weekend. saturday and sunday there is going to be one more front that crosses the area. so saturday is dry. cooler at the coastline and on sunday this front crosses probably in the more hours, and there might be a spot shower and behind it wow, look at that. less humid air and a little taste of fall settling in next week with sunshine and low humidity, but it is very sticky out there this morning, and t >> lots and lots of delays. thank you, cindy, a live look at the expressway, and there is a check by the gas tank, and you can see the northbound side is very slow heading towards the bottom of the screen and also the travel times. 93 south is heavy out of methuen into andover and we're watching a crash on 93 south by 128 where one lane is closed, and those delays are back into wilmington. and once you get past that heading south side not too bad.

6:26 am
country. the body cameras eliminate disputes between police and citizens on interactions which go south. they protect the police as well as citizens. they resolve the disputes before escalation. in boston where the police have successfully navigated troubled waters affecting other waters, it has improved the version of two shootings and maintained order. boston remains just one heated and disputed incident away from the civil unrest that has afflicted other communities after unwillingness to wear cameras even in a limited test form sends the wrong signal. it is in contrast to the admirable community outreach programs conducted by the police department and is more likely to chip away at favorable relations between boston's residents and a police force that has worked
