still way below average for the year. you know, inch or two of rain certainly is helpful. look at the days that have been above normal so far. so the month, a couple of degrees above the average. that is going to continue for a few more days. probably kind of through saturday. then, change is coming. 51 now. westerly breeze in boston. in the 40's low 50's around the region. we still have some pesky cloudiness around. we have some at times tomorrow in the morning.

easier temperatures tomorrow. look it is mild. these are highs today. midwest really mild. 71 today. st. louis, 80 in memphis. even minneapolis, 61. chicago with 60. detroit, 59. so that is why i say the next couple of days will be pretty mild around here. enjoy being outdoors considering it is already the second half of november. back down again, so they are going to be pesky overnight into tomorrow morning. especially here in eastern mass. i think as we get deeper into the day, we will have more in the way of sunshine particularly over location. friday looks like a nice day. there will be clouds near the
11:20 pm
and clear and going to be a pleasant air mass and a great day to be outside. that is friday. and we may squeeze in saturday kind of because then we will see moisture back to the east and approach from the west. but really, it doesn't look like it is a factor until we get to saturday night or sunday. so that is where we got three decent days. now by sunday morning, a storm trying to develop and not going to get the act together until it is beyond us. the main purpose is that it will draw colder air in beginning sunday and especially sunday night, monday, monday night. now in northern new england,
11:21 pm
showers, squalls and some accumulation. i am not expecting that here in boston. look at these temperatures. now, how warm it is in the middle of the country. but now you got some subzero air when you go far enough north. a piece of that comes down obviously not that cold. then, that is what we'll feel. as i mentioned for sunday, sunday night, early monday. it is the area. the elevated areas that could get some snowfall and that is good news. bill fine, president and general manager here at wcvb, has been named 2016 broadcaster of the year by the massachusetts broadcasters association. maria: it's the highest honor the association gives. bill has led our newsroom as president and gm since 2005, but he's called wcvb home since 1982. wcvb was also recognized with other awards, including station of the year. ed: he worked at the same stags i worked 25 years ago. maria: oh. a little trouble there. congratulations. ed: we toll you earlier.
