5:14 am
towards dallas, houston to areas that really don't need the rain. in fact, here's the latest motion. by monday morning, they've to seven inches. we're going to ad four to eight inches on top of that so see the bull's eye here for the houston area, dallas area and all this moisture. it is associated not only with patricia but also this cold front that is stalled out over the area. and this whole system is headed in our direction. it's going to take its time getting here throw so for today high pressure dominates our weather giving us at least dry conditions, not necessarily tons of sunshine. in fact, i think a lot of clouds are begin to begin to build in first from the east to the west and then from the west to the east. from our approaching system. we are going to talk about some rain. in fact, rain is entering our forecast tomorrow. it looks like on the medium side especially in the morning hours. i think by afternoon though we're going to get some clearing. we're dry monday and tuesday and then some of those remnants of
5:15 am
patricia associated with that frontal boundary could come into our area and give us a good chunk of rain. we really do need the rain. we're down over 7.5 inches for the year. down over two inches for the month of october. so i know we don't necessarily love to have it. it the catchens a lot of our plans outside but really do need it. now this morning, we're starting out in the 30's in boston. 34 worcester. it's chilly in keene and concord. you're checking in this morning in the 20's. nantucket, you're the warm spot at 50 degrees right now. and today with the wind out of the north and east and then shifting to the south and east, we're really going to warm up into the low 50's. 51 in boston. 50 worcester. maybe the mid 50's on nantucket. again, we're looking for increasing clouds through the afternoon. i think we'll see some sunshine at least this morning. you can see that indicator on the future cast. notice these clouds pushing in from east to west. and then these other clouds moving in from west to east. and that's associated with our frontal boundary that is going to give us the rain.
5:16 am
leave showers in the forecast and some showers early tomorrow. but then we will see some sunshine, i think, by the afternoon. notice those temperatures warming into the low 60's because they're associated with a warm front. so here we go for sunday morning we start out with some showers as early as 7:00 in worcester county. southern new hampshire. they move towards boston and the north shore by about 9:00 or so. we're going to leave them in the forecast until about 12:00. notice they're trail to go the south shore and the cape you're going to get it last. a lot of us may not get as much as we'd like. then we start to clear out through the afternoon and see more sunshine. sunday. i want to reiterate that but we could see some early showers. that means if you are headed out to the pate roes game it doesn't look so bad actually. you may have one or two showers if you're tailgating earlier. by the end of the game we're looking at mostly cloudy skies with some sunshine sunshine breaking through the clouds and temperatures in the lower 60's which we will take. as we go through the workweek we start to cool off. we look for the next chance for significant rain coming
