    A heat advisory remains in effect for Boston and surrounding areas through Thursay evening for another day of high heat indices. Actual temperatures will be in the 80s with dew points in the 70s, leading to heat indices in the mid-90s.

    Morning thunderstorms brought significant rain to Cape Cod, up to 5 inches of rain in spots. Street flooding occurred in Orleans, Eastham and Chatham. Isolated thunderstorms remain a possibility this afternoon, mainly along the Cape and through Maine.

    Humidity finally starts to drop into Friday, with dew points back into the low 60s for most. Temperatures will still be in the 80s, but will feel more comfortable thanks to the lower humidity.

    The weekend brings some big changes; temperatures drop back into the 70s but off-and-on rain returns both Saturday and Sunday.

    Clerk Pulls Out Machete on Would-Be Robber

    [NATL] Clerk Pulls Out Machete on Would-Be Robber

    A would-be robber armed with a knife had a surprise in store when an Alabama store clerk pulled out a machete in defense. The two's brief knife fight was caught on camera before the clerk runs out to damage the robber's car.

    According to police, suspect Seth Holcomb walked up to the counter to make a purchase. He leaves the store and then comes back in as if to make a second purchase. Then, he pulled out a knife at the counter. What he didn't expect was that the clerk would pull out a machete of his own.
