2 people have been arrested in connection to the shooting of former red sox star david ortiz. The baseball legend is recovering in boston after undergoing a second surgery -- following a sunday shooting in the dominican republic that left him severely injured. Ortiz took his first steps on tuesday afternoon following that second procedure.

Here is your latest forecast from First Warning Meteorologist Dan Brown: 

It was a cool, crisp start with temperatures in the 40's.  Temperatures will be coming up quickly today though. High pressure is in control, so expect a dry, warm afternoon with tons of sunshine. High temperatures will climb into the middle and upper 70s with a light southerly breeze as high pressure moves offshore. It will be a fantastic day! Get out and enjoy because things go downhill tomorrow. 

Clouds will increase tonight ahead of our next round of rain, which is set to arrive tomorrow morning. Low pressure will move through the Great Lakes and pass to our northwest, meanwhile, a second low will move up the coast. A classic set up usually we see in the winter. 

The steadiest rain tomorrow will pass through during the mid morning and early afternoon. By the evening, scattered showers taper off as a cold front passes through. It will be cool tomorrow too. Temperatures will only reach near 60.

A few showers rotate through on the back side of departing low pressure Friday, but we will also get some sun in the mix. Temperatures will be more seasonable on Friday, but still below normal with highs near 70. 

The weekend begins dry and seasonable with a cool start Saturday morning, then a sunny, warm afternoon with highs around 80. Saturday is looking beautiful! Humidity increases for Sunday and Monday and so do shower chances as low pressure passes by. Father's Day is looking a bit unsettled but most of the day it will not be raining.
