will be required to post their grades in their windows. >> mark: the drought is getting worse and it's hitting hard. typically this time of year, the herring are finishing their run back out in to the ocean, but as fox 25's robert goulston found out in weymouth, the herring run has come to a stop. >> the reporter: the water is running but it's more of a trickle. >> usually this is flowing over the top of this. >> the reporter: george, weymouth a's herring warden, shows us the dry conditions stopped the fish migration from whitman's pond out into the bay and the ocean. >> this is pretty bad. every single rainstorm it comes, it splits, goes north and south and we don't get any. many fish made it out before the drought hit hardest, but there's a lot of fish waiting in whitt man's pond for the water level to come back up. at certain times of year, this is what the herring run looks like. today it's barely running.
6:46 pm
the system. >> the reporter: according to the u.s. drought monitor, severe drought conditions are now in 75% of the state, which is impacting drinking water levels. >> when we see that the water level is getting precipitously close to the trigger, we will supplement the supply with the two wells. but the water quality is not as good, which have why the town is urging people to conserve. >> we have gotten almost through the summer without having to trigger those bans. we'll see what happens in september. >> the reporter: for the survive, but if fewer make the run, there could be an impact to marine life. >> that's what they are, food fish for everything out there, which is the more herring we have, the better it is for us, for the fish we eat. >> the reporter: as we transition to fall, the hope is that the water levels in whitman pond go back up, so they can get the herring run going again. in weymouth, robert goulston, fox 25 news. >> kevin: you're saying you want some rain.
6:47 pm
right now, there are some showers out there, but dinnertime temperatures are hottest here in the merrimack valley. boston is at 83 degrees. norwood, 80. and there is no rain in southernmost new england right now. hey, sorry to spring this on you, but it's almost fall and look what's happening. today will be the first time the sunset is before 7:30 p.m. yesterday was the first day the sun didn't come up until after 6:00 a.m. daylight is wasting. by october 16th, it will be going down at 6:00 p.m. in the you. there are some showers out there in places that need it here in southern new hampshire. wilton to manchester, but it's light. kittery getting a shower. showers back through the hudson valley and berkshires. this one is trying to flare up just outside of albany. doesn't look like a big concern for me. out there, the black sabbath show, 77 degrees with sunshine, at 7:00 p.m., the show kicks off, staying in the 70's throughout the duration of this and while you're in traffic getting out of the xfinity
6:48 pm
these are the showers in the hudson valley by 8:00 a.m. we'll see if that happens. i'm not optimistic we'll see those showers though. which is a good thing, i'm optimistic we'll stay dry. a few clouds around tonight, a couple showers try to flare up to the south but not a big concern, not until the middle of the day tomorrow when the cold front cuts on through with more showers and storms moving across the area. late morning for the south shore. lunchtime for worcester, into boston, 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. in the afternoon. south shore and cape cod for dinnertime and out in fact, it's going to be a pretty nice looking weekend ahead. lunchtime in the mid 80's. 80 degrees tomorrow afternoon for a high temperature. lowell, billerica, hitting 90 degrees. cape cod in the 80's as well, so a very warm and sticky day coming up tomorrow. so what we're looking at now is for some rain and to get rain, we need tropical air to move on in, but both of the systems
6:49 pm
we could use the rain. this is gaston, gaston is a tropical storm now, flared up into a hurricane late last night after we went off the air at 11:00 p.m., or 11:30 p.m., but it's now weakened a bit. it's forecast to become a hurricane one more time. category 2. check this out. bermuda, east coast of the u.s. is back here, not even close to us, curling out to sea. won't get any rain from gaston. this system had a little more promise, across the state least it did yesterday. this one is weakening though and look at what all the computer models are doing now, pushing it we'd have to wait until next week, this is next week at 8:00 p.m. from this date, for this to get in to the gulf of mexico if it becomes anything, and then get some of that moisture to come pushed up here. that's a lot to ask of the atmosphere for us to get out of our drought. but here's what we're looking at going in to the weekend. a shower and storm threat tomorrow, something you need to be aware of, especially during the middle of the day and afternoon tomorrow. make sure you have the fox 25 weather app handy and tune in to me, i'll be sure to track them all for you and keep you safe. beyond that into the weekend,
