BOSTON MARATHON ANNIVERSARY-PKG


PKG SCRIPT:

SOT

"IT'S A BEAUTIFUL DAY FOR BOSTON"

Yesterday, the annual blessing of the runners. and a pasta dinner.

Heather Abbott, who lost part of her leg in the attack, will run the last

half mile with the woman who found her on the ground and helped save her

life.

SOT Heather Abbott

"I CAN ONLY IMAGINE THAT IT'S GOING TO FEEL VERY INVIGORATING AND SORT OF

LIKE A SENSE OF CLOSURE."

Along the marathon route, anywhere from 500,000 to a million spectators are

expected.

Security is unprecedented.

Underground, in a high-tech control room, officials are monitoring feeds

from 100 cameras.

SOT Kurt Schwartz

"ANYTHING OF TROUBLE AND ANY PERSON THAT'S PRESENTING A CONCERN TO US MAY BE

MONITORED VERY QUICKLY."

In addition, some 4,000 police officers are out on patrol, 500 of them

undercover.

SOT Ray Kelly

"IT'S IMPORTANT TO NOTE, I THINK, THAT THIS RACE GOES THROUGH EIGHT TOWNS,

INCLUDING BOSTON. SO THAT MEANS YOU NEED A LOT OF COORDINATION AND A LOT OF

COMMUNICATION."

Boston police got an early test last Tuesday when a man left a backpack

containing a rice cooker and confetti near the finish line.

It turned out to be hoax, but it brought back painful memories of last year.

NATS - Announcer at Fenway on Sunday

"to the land of the free and the home of the brave"

Last night, before the Red Sox game, Boston remembered those who were killed

or injured, and honored the first responders.

FORECAST-WXWALL


THIS WEATHERCAST HAS BEEN PREPARED BY THE ABC7 WEATHER STAFF.

IT IS NOT A VERBATIM OF WHAT IS BEING SAID, BUT IS THE FORECAST FOR OUR AREA."Gradual warming trend"

Despite some lingering cloud cover yesterday, it was a pleasant and dry end to our holiday weekend. As we start the new week, we'll see a gradual warming trend with more sunshine.

Our morning will start off seasonably cool with temperatures in the lower half of the 60s. A few patchy clouds will get the day going, but overall expect a mostly to partly sunny day across the area. Over the weekend, daytime highs managed to stay in the upper 70s, but with a bit more sun during the afternoon temperatures will climb into the lower half of the 80s. A light breeze from the northeast will keep humidity values low, which will result in a rather comfortable day.

Mostly clear skies will prevail tonight as temperatures settle into the lower to middle 60s.

Not much will change as we head into Tuesday and beyond. We'll see a few more high clouds drifting in for the west, but ultimately our forecast stays mainly dry. Temperatures will warm up quickly through the week with afternoon highs in the middle to upper 80s. Our skies will stay partly sunny through the end of the week, with a slight uptick in our humidity levels as winds turn to the southeast. Return to index of stories...

FORECAST-WX WALL


THIS WEATHERCAST HAS BEEN PREPARED BY THE ABC7 WEATHER STAFF.

IT IS NOT A VERBATIM OF WHAT IS BEING SAID, BUT IS THE FORECAST FOR OUR AREA."Gradual warming trend"

Despite some lingering cloud cover yesterday, it was a pleasant and dry end to our holiday weekend. As we start the new week, we'll see a gradual warming trend with more sunshine.

Our morning will start off seasonably cool with temperatures in the lower half of the 60s. A few patchy clouds will get the day going, but overall expect a mostly to partly sunny day across the area. Over the weekend, daytime highs managed to stay in the upper 70s, but with a bit more sun during the afternoon temperatures will climb into the lower half of the 80s. A light breeze from the northeast will keep humidity values low, which will result in a rather comfortable day.

Mostly clear skies will prevail tonight as temperatures settle into the lower to middle 60s.

Not much will change as we head into Tuesday and beyond. We'll see a few more high clouds drifting in for the west, but ultimately our forecast stays mainly dry. Temperatures will warm up quickly through the week with afternoon highs in the middle to upper 80s. Our skies will stay partly sunny through the end of the week, with a slight uptick in our humidity levels as winds turn to the southeast. Return to index of stories...
