those are winter-like october. this is really unusual. we're going to warm things up quickly on tuesday. 36 degrees right now, northwesterly winds, 10 miles per hour, but the wind chill index makes it feel like it's 28 degrees outside. heading to the bus tomorrow morning, make sure you have some admit tens with you, a cold start of the day. the winds are out of the northwest, but not as strong as they were earlier today. the thing about tomorrow, the today. the temperatures will be cold, we'll have sunshine, less wind, i think it will feel a lot better out there. boy, it feels cold in medford, fitchburg to jaffrey where it's 28 degrees right now. south of the city, almost everyone now is below the freezing mark. boston is still, still has not reached the 32-degree mark. last night we got within a degree of it. tonight we'll get below 32 and that will end officially then the growing season. the snow shower activity is gone. we're looking at clear skies out there. that is chilly. that's the reason for the
you'll notice what happened, inland we had the freezing once. now we got just along the coast, that's the only place left and i think we're already starting to see the temperatures very close to the freezing mark there as well as the south shore, the cape in the 32 degree range. nantucket sitting out here with relatively warm ocean waters around it may not get to the freezing mark. clear and cold tonight, 24 to 32 degrees for the overnight low, tomorrow, lots of sunshine, but chilly sunshine, 46 and a few spots may actually hit the 50-degree mark. the winds will be down making it feel a little bit better out there. 48, 49, a few 50's showing up here or there. worcester had a high temperature of only 40 today. you'll have about a six-degree advantage for tomorrow and tuesday warming up close to 60 degrees. we have a few showers coming in as we start to talk about thursday's forecast. we need some rain. it's not looking like a big rain event, but we need the showers that will be moving
their way through. from the south shore to the sea, about 48, 49 degrees for high temperatures and most of the cape tomorrow will have temperatures into the upper 40's as well. here is the way the satellite picture looks tomorrow morning. this is 6:00 a.m., clear, watch what happens in the day, we don't see the puffy clouds screlling like the last couple of days. the clouds won't come in until tomorrow night. you don't have to worry about the snow and rain showers like we saw today. with the cold temperatures, the peak area is sliding its way southward, spectacular colors within the city in the next couple of days. over the next seven days, cold start tomorrow, we still rebound to 48 degrees. look at that warm-up that we have coming on tuesday. we're going to warm up that fast because the winds are going to come around to the southwest. they're going to get strong. they're surging that warm air up in here. that's why we get to 62 degrees. because the warm air is coming in, a slight risk for a shower later in the day there is a threat sitting out there. there are the showers on thursday. look at the temperature, it's
mild with this, 66 degrees, perhaps a few showers in the morning, a few showers in the afternoon. unfortunately, not a soaking rain, we could really use a soaking rain out there and the next chance for rain on sunday's forecast, that again looking like spot showers. the next seven days, not much rain to talk about, but certainly a big warm-up coming towards midweek and the cooldown isn't as dramatic as what we went through. ed: a family reunion more than 100 years in the making. heather: a cool story. the relatives who never knew that part of their family tree was hanging t[ duck quacking and wind whistling ]

we stand right now, patriots in control of this game, 34-21. all right, around the rest of the national football league, let's go to seattle, marshawn lynch back to russell wilson, he let fly and it's six points for seattle. but it wouldn't be enough because the carolina panthers came to the great northwest and with time running down, under 35 seconds to go, cam newton throws the eventually game winner, 27-23 carolina wins it. they're unbeaten and so are the green bay packers. aaron rodgers threw a touchdown pass, 17-3 was the lead and look at this, first and goal from the 3-yard line, four straight plays, the packer defense came up huge , philip rivers, attempted 65 passes, the pack stay unbeaten with that win. and the new york mets are going to head to wrigley field with a two-game lead in their back pocket. the mets win 4-1, the final. three in the first inning, two
