this morning, we really rebounded. >> we rebounded by 30 to 35 degrees in spots. >> i like that when it happens. >> a chilly morning and feels so nice in the afternoon. i know there's rain on the way but we could actually use it. the sun is shining but for the month of november, we have not had a drop of rainfall for the month so far. so we are over an inch under a deficit for the month. today we'll go down as a dry day as well. this is obviously after a dry couple of months here where we're in a deficit by about 5 to 6 inches in some communities. we'll talk about the rain for a second. for now just enjoy it. 57 degrees in boston. the dew points in the 30s. the wind out of the southwest at 9 miles per hour right now. a lot of spots running in the 50s. if you're stepping out for your afternoon lunch, looking good. just shy of 60 in taunton right now. middle to upper 50s from chatham to falmouth 57 rchtion. 52 worcester. may come up another couple of degrees. the skies are clear. wispy clouds just to our south. then you encounter the rain
virginia right now, down through the carolinas. some of this moisture continues to move north. now it will kind of split. what i mean by that is a lot of the moisture is going to pass out over the ocean. it's going to be more to our west, too. so we're kind of sandwiched in between. what does it mean for our forecast? the rest of today we're final. tomorrow morning's -- fine. tomorrow morning's commute will be fine, too. rain will arrive from south to north tomorrow afternoon. see what i mean? a lot of moisture out over the ocean. so the south coast and cape cod may see some of the heaviest rain from this tomorrow evening. nice pockets of rain will continue. it all consolidates into an ocean storm. so the wind around it, you guessed it, blowing off the ocean for wednesday morning. so any veterans day plans you may have, going to be a little bit soggy with the steadiest rain in the morning tapering in intensity and coverage during the course of wednesday afternoon. wouldn't be surprised to see a break of sunshine inland by the time we get to the second half of wednesday. so in terms of projected rainfall here, keep in mind this is one depiction. kind of paints the picture here. the purples indicating an inch and a half to two and a half
inches. i think the heaviest will be out over the cape and islands. again the steadiest rainfall is tomorrow evening and night into wednesday morning. now, the wind also going to be coming in off the ocean. strongest wind comes tomorrow night into wednesday morning. we may see some gusts to top out 35 to 45 miles per hour on the cape and the islands. the rest of us in eastern massachusetts a few gusts may hour. so that will pile up the waves. thankfully the high tides aren't too astronomically high but nonetheless the seas are going to build 10 to 15 feet. we may see just a bit of minor splashover tomorrow late evening but i'm more concerned with late morning high tide on wednesday where we may see a little bit of minor splash over the typical spots here as we head into wednesday late morning. overnight tonight 43 in boston. 30s in the suburbs. we had 20s this morning. so it won't be quite as cold. the clouds will be on the increase. high temperatures tomorrow once again in the upper 50s before the rain moves in. if you're heading out early
tomorrow morning, it is going to abdry -- to be a dry start. have the umbrella with you. we lock in the clouds on wednesday. only the upper 40s on veterans day. another round of showers moves in west to east on thursday. steadiest in the evening. nice little rebound around 60 to end the week. the weekend looking mostly dry although there may abbrief shower here or there on saturday and saturday night. then turning cooler again, sunshine, upper 40s on sunday. >> sounds good. thank you very much, danielle. we appreciate it. coming up, making it right. >> how voc wagon -- investigation wagon plans to make good with its -- volkswagen plans to make good with its drivers after the
