5:19 pm
for tomorrow afternoon's commute. it is arriving during the commute and probably around the middle portion of the commute around boston. the snow will begin with temperatures above freezing and could even be mixed with some rain. so the initial impact looks greater to the north and west because it will be colder especially the higher elevations of worcester county and comes in earlier there. that's where it could adhere to the services and make it trickier. look at city cam. it is shaking in the breeze a little bit in the strong wind. you can see we have a little daylight out there and that's encouraging. 31 and below freezing in boston. there is a steady wind of 18 miles an hour. and it is in the 20s in all areas north and west. tomorrow it will be up a few degrees at this time to what you are seeing, but it will still be below freezing north and west and below freezing south and east. the impact will be grayer to the north and west. we are still getting wind gusts, but no longer 35, 40
5:20 pm
now it is about 20, 25 miles per hour except nantucket. we have a windchill of 8 and 19 in boston. the teens in the cold spots and 20s in boston. look what happens if we get to 4:00 p.m. if we look to the i-95 corridor it is in the midto upper 30s. it doesn't mean there will be snow. but the ground will be warmer because of the temperature being above freezing. but it is freezing and below 495 north and west. the temperatures don't change that much. they drop a little bit. and after the precipitation ends. after that we get another cold shot on wednesday. the temperatures could be in the 20s to maybe near 30 all day long. so that's going to be another cold day. a little cooledder than today. the system i am talking about is just developing out here around the lower great lakes. we have a storm system and it is going to be tracking to the
5:21 pm
we briefly get into it tomorrow evening and into tomorrow night. so we will see thickening clouds tomorrow and may get partial sun early. notice 7:00 tomorrow night, kind of a mix or wet snow in boston, but snow to the north and west where it could accumulate some, and then we see it until about 10:00 or 11:00 at night and then it ends abruptly and then we go back to cold weather. anywhere from almost nothing to an inch in and around boston especially on the grassy surfaces, but it could be one to two inches outside of 128. the amounts will build a little bit to northern new england. if you are looking to ski or thinking about that, notice it is a wap -- walloping. bangor, maine could get eight inches of snow. you can see the story into tomorrow night. it is windy and very cold on wednesday. what i want to point out are the wind gusts are all over again. look at these gusts. 40 miles per hour or greater is coming up on wednesday.
5:22 pm
cold day, but not as windy. the temperatures moderate a little on friday. how much? that's very important. the next storm looks like it moves in by dawn or so on saturday or even late friday night and lasts into saturday afternoon and it could be a mix meaning north and west may get snow and the boston area could get a mix and south and east could get rain. certainly way too early to fine-tune that. we have a large patriot playoff game on saturday. phil: thanks. jc: you could be worth close to a billion dollars if you win the powerball jackpot. phil: and the prize is growing. coming up, how winning could mean losing in the game of life. jc: and a sick little girl's dream come true. the nurses who went above and beyond to bring snow to her at the hospital. phil: and punishment handed out after a funeral home
