6:15 pm
57 miles per hour. logan airport, 47. cambridge, 54 and blue hill, 54. it was just very windy, as you know, everywhere. it's still windy, not as windy as it was earlier. thankfully. our temperature is 25. the dew point is -- air dry with the westerly wind. barometer is rising. add in a little elevation. gets colder. that's why we see 18 in worcester. 20 in orange. but it's just cold because it's a cold air mass. the winds are gusty but not as ferocious as earlier. no longer damaging and the trend will be for the winds to ease more during the night. tomorrow might be a little on the breezy side but nothing at all compared to today. so that in itself should make you feel better. right now, wind chill is four degrees above zero in worcester. one above in pitsfield. 14 in boston. and we'll keep those numbers pretty much through the night. the temperature will drop a little bit this evening but may level off overnight.
6:16 pm
some clouds in here by morning. tomorrow's high temperature could approach or touch 30 in some spots. a little bit of improvement. tomorrow night, not as cold and then friday, much more comfortable because the high temperature will be somewhere on either side of 40 by a couple of degrees and the wind will be very light so that will make a huge difference in how it all feels to us. now, as far as the next 24 hours are concerned, watch this little area of snow that's moving through portions of ohio and michigan. i doesn't look like that will be strengthening as it moves eastward. so the clouds will be in by morning. snow showers in the berkshires and maybe a couple in and around the boston area before that morning commute is over. i'm not expecting accumulation. perhaps a feather dusting in a few spots. then we may see some sunshine for tomorrow afternoon. and we should have at least some partial sunshine for friday. but then we'll be watching a storm for late friday night and saturday morning that will be
6:17 pm
the clouds will rethicken later friday and friday night could. be a little touch of drizzle or even freezing drizzle over the interior of friday night. you see those warm temperatures on friday are very important because the atmosphere looks like it's going to be a little bit too warm to support snow with that storm threat. very late friday night and saturday morning. but you still have to watch it because it's still fairly close and if there is intensity or elevation, if it does bet into the worcester hills of new hampshire then there could be some wet snow involved but there is some indication the storm may be just a little further east than the heaviest precipitation and strongest wind might be confined to the coastline and cape cod. so we'll keep an eye on that it looks like it will trend faster. here before the pacers game, trending warmier which could mean some rain and possible mixture. saturday, it's the first half of west side. i
6:18 pm
patriots play that storm will be over. temperature around 32 degrees. right now, northwest wind at 10 to 20. maybe a bit gustier than that. look at what i put up on sunday. a chance sunday night there might be some snow. a storm will be developing in the ocean as we turn colder. probably too far out to be a big player but it's a slight chance that it could affect especially the coastline line and cape. keep an eye out on that bitter cold weather will be with us for the first half of next week. then a gradual moderation. i'll have an update on all that i said tonight at 11:00. i'm meteorologist harvey leonard. now sports center 5. >> if chandler jones had a bad reaction to using synthetic marijuana as it's confirmed, could he be suspended by the national football league? assuming jones he's not already in the league's substance abuse program he can't be subject to sauce suspension because he would be considered a first time offender. jones is on the practice field today but he was

6:20 pm
>> i don't know. i don't feel strongly one way or the other. >> the does word in the locker room today was distraction and history tells us the patriots are masters of it. so a few nonfootball related questions aren't likely to throw them off their game. >> to be honest with you, ignore it. i think coach belichick does a good job with that. to let you know that certain things we need to care about and certain things we just need to let be. >> we support all 50 or 60 guys on this team. we have their backs. regardless of the situation. and it's no different with chandler. so he has our support. >> for a team that doesn't say much, that says it all. the patriots are circling the wagons around their teammate. sports center 5. >> bob, thank you. unlike yesterday, rob gronkowski was spotted on the practice field and like jones, he was listed as a limited participant
