DAVID WADE: Thank you for joining us. I'm David Wade with a WBZ News Update. Our top stories, a fire burning at a Revere home. The heaviest of the flames coming through the roof and the attic there. Firefighters opened a large hole in the roof to try to get it under control. But you can see a lot of smoke and extensive damage. We don't know the cause yet or if there have been any injuries.

New Bedford police are investigating a deadly shooting. Police say a man was shot on David Street this afternoon and rushed to the hospital, where he later died. Investigators are searching right now for a suspect.

The TD Garden will no longer require fully vaccinated fans to wear masks. Masks were still required at the last Celtics game and the last two Bruins games as well even after the state dropped its mandate. But the Garden is now dropping that requirement. Fans who are not vaccinated are recommended to wear a mask.

Let's get a check of the forecast now here with Eric Fisher. Eric.

ERIC FISHER: Hey there, David. It was a beautiful day today. It'll be pleasant tonight. See mostly cloudy skies, pretty mild. We'll hold up in the 50s. We are tracking some rain, though, for the end of the week.

First round arriving as we head into Thursday morning. Best chance would be along a line from about Boston to Worcester south and east during the morning and first half of the day. And then in the afternoon and the evening, we'll switch it around. The best chance of rain there will be for areas north and west into Worcester County and into Southwestern New Hampshire.

But we'll look at a lot of cloud cover, a muggier day. Clouds will hold the temperatures down close to 70 degrees in most spots. And then a little bit milder for areas north and west across the interior, coolest across the South Coast and the Cape with high temperatures in the 60s.

Front approaches on Friday, and with that, a chance for a few more scattered showers and thunderstorms, especially on Friday afternoon. As that front settles offshore, it's going to usher in a much hotter weekend. We're talking 80s and 90s from Saturday right on through next week. David.

DAVID WADE: That is steamy. All right, Eric Fisher, thank you so much. I'm David Wade. This has been a WBZ News Update. Thank you for watching. Have a great night.
