4:45 pm
there is a lot to talk about. first and foremost let's talk about the here and now. we have scattered showers and thunderstorms. we will come in tighter along the pike. looks like we have a thundershower -- actually just passing to the eastern side of palmer right now. these are potent downpours and we have another one toward south hampton and they are snea t decent rainfall. we have had close to half an inch of rainfall, am hurst and close to half an inch of rainfall. and that has come down on short order. expect visibility to be dropping pretty quickly down there. no problems in boston right now. it is gorgeous. 64 degrees and a little cool though. that's because we have a wind out of the east at 10 miles per hour. the pressure is holding steady
4:46 pm
right now the temperatures area wide are cooler along the coastline. 64 worcester and 69 in orange. down in the cape and island mid60s down there. the water temperatures are in the lower 60s. that's important because with the wind coming in off the water the coastal temperatures will mimic the temperature in the water. here is what we have going on right now. if you look carefully do you see the spin going on? there is an area of low pressure that has caused these te cold air a lot of and warm air at the surface. the warm air wants to rise and in some cases isolated thundershowers. the high pressure will be building in tonight and that means a couple of things. dryer weather, but it also means that wind persistently is coming in out of the north and east. and it also means patchy fog and areas of drizzle later tonight. 50 to 57 degrees on average for tonight's lows.
