4:59 am
weather will be dry. so we won't be tracking any more rain even though we really do need it. we're still in a moderate and severe drought from across central mass up the north shore and into southern new hampshire. so any rain you can get this morning is some welcome moisture. if you're getting ready to head out the door. 7:00 a.m., scattered showers for the morning commute, temperatures in the upper 60s. highs today partly sunny. a peek of sunshine later on this afternoon and high temperatures again in those upper 70s. so another day of temperatures and we're warping things up as we head into the rest of the week. more on that as "today in new england" starts right now. >> sarah: a warning for women not to travel to part of one u.s. city. people on alert after ten new zika cases. >> christa: and driving into danger. one person behind bars. another on the run after a couple's dash cam captures them getting caught in the cross fire in a shoot-out in roxbury. >> sarah: trouble on the trail for donald trump.
