the sunset on sunday, just around 4:30 in the afternoon. the temperatures are going to be trending down a bit this weekend. it's going to be a mild week. yesterday we were in the 60s, and closer to average today in the mid 50s so look at your weekend, especially on sunday. we may not get out of the 40s so a bit cooler feel heading into the weekend. not terribly chilly out the door. we're running in the mid 40s in worcester. boston 48, south shore plymouth and around 50 on and you can see it's cooler in this direction and this is where the air is flowing out of, so with that airflow today, despite the sunshine the temperatures are not going to climb that much, and you can see that there are some clouds out there this morning, particularly from worcester on westward, a few more clouds to the south, as well, and clouds will be thinning out this morning. bright sunshine lunchtime through the afternoon, but look at the winds, they start to pick up after sunrise, and during the afternoon, sustained winds around 15 miles per hour, could

6:16 am
to the polls, and it looks mild, too. we could be at 60 by tuesday. so up and down temperature-wise, but mainly dry for the weekend. >> ok. >> got a little busier on the roads, a live look. this is in wilmington, 93 northbound, and there is a truck accident with the fuel spill. it's hard to see. the right lane is closed, and again, this is all happening on the northbound side of the roadway, so if you are traveling through this stretch, expect some delays and everyone on the southbound what's going on. let's check out what's happening. that crash involving a truck with a fuel spill by concord street. and then just north of there, there is also a disabled car, so give yourself a few extra minutes, and we have got an accident on route 3 south side by trouble cove road, those delays back. once you get past those so far, not too bad. 93 south down as you travel towards the lever connector. the pike is a 15-minute ride. and heading south some delays on

6:26 am
flexibility for those with inflexible work schedules and eliminates the need to stay in line for hours. sometimes during inclement weather, and factors, which also lower the turnout. and there is a risk, early voting cuts shores the vetting process and late developments in a campaign may impact our choice up to the last minute. do we really have a firm grasp on clinton and trump's views or are we inundated to the very end on their personal failings? considering the record dog eat dog, it is a considered risk for the majority of americans. record early vote is an acceptance for change, let's hope the discussion on increased reforms occurs before the first
