colder than it was today. right now winds out of the notorious at 12 miles her power -- hour. they're going to be busy tomorrow but settling down as we look at monday. worcester already down to 40 degrees. a lot of temperatures are going to go through the 30's and into the up ir20's tonight. a lot of people have asked me, is this a little early? well shall it is. off to the west we typically get our first frost freeze about october 20. and if we do get freezing conditions in boston it will be on the early side. it technically does not include the city of boston or the cape. however, if you are worried about keeping those plants alive you might want to cover them or bring them inside because it's going to be really cold. really close. you have to be out at logan airport where the official reading is taken. if you are out to the west a

so here's the way it looks tomorrow. our futurecast, 8:00 a.m., lots of sunshine. as we advance the clock into the amp, a few cloud out there but not really looking for any precip out of that. then once the sun goes down the skies will clear and that means another cold night coming our way. if you are headed to the bay to check out the head of the charles regatta, the only bad part is that wind is going to be a little bit gusty like it was this afternoon. 12 out of the northwest. monday morning if we don't get freezing conditions tonight we certainly will on sunday night into monday morning because look at these low temperatures, again back down into the 20's. we start to warm up a little bit and thursday we actually have a chance of seeing some rain in the forecast. it will be warmer before it gets here but there will be a chance of showers on thursday and in the morning and again in the amp hours.

there say little more to this game for him. if the patriots run the ball, run it a lot, run it well and run it in the red zone, then they're simply following the formula for success that has worked so well the last three times they've played the colesdz -- colts. in the last three games against the colt the patriots have rushed for over 200 yards twice abandon scored 13 rushing touchdowns. rush more is not jut a mountain with chiseled presidents' faces, it's an effective strategy against the colts. meanwhile, brady has only averaged five passes a game. if he throws in the neighborhood of 50 passes tomorrow night we can reasonably deduce he had vengeance on the brain even if the patriots say otherwise. >> every week we just want to win, so that's what the motivation is. coming in, preparing the whole week and going out there.
when you prepare all week, you put everything out there on the practice field, your in film, you're preparing your body mentally and physically. you just don't want to go out sunday. >> look, it's the same questions every week. we're getting ready to play a game on sunday. we're doing the best we can to prepare for it. that's what we do. bob: can they do it well? dan -- donte high tower will miss tomorrow with a bruised rib. and tyrell brown is on injured reserve. the clemson tigers, the verb clemsonning was created to de note their history of blowing easy games. memphis hasn't beaten a ranked
