8:15 am
with that, while most of us see a very cool and breezy rain, some of our western locations, especially through western new england, so the berkshires and even through the green mountains of vermont, will see some snowfall early tomorrow morning. we're watching that as we head into the afternoon and evening as well. things are mainly dry. we have those clouds and gusty winds as well. you'll notice things will feel quite a bit cooler tomorrow. with that cold blast in place, there is a chance for a few snowflakes to fly even outsi tomorrow evening. here's that big system we're tracking. you can see that stretch of rainfall making its way through toronto through west virginia and then behind that the winds are bringing blizzard warnings through much of the great lakes, bringing that next chance of snowfall for areas of new england. right now things are looking relatively dry and clear, but look closely what we're seeing in the southern portions of the coast right now moving out into the cape as well. there's a very light cloud deck
8:16 am
low clouds hinting at the clouds that will continue to develop as they push westward throughout the afternoon forecast today. that's something we're watching mainly on the coastline today. those clouds keeping our temperatures just slightly cooler along the coast when compared to inland locations. right now 46 in boston. plymouth at a warm 49 degrees. perfect conditions for kicking off the opening ceremonies today. also as we move inland, there's those 30's. it's quite a bit colder to start this morning. as i mentioned, with that sun massachusetts today, that's where we see the likelihood of a high near 60 degrees in pittsfield. quite a bit warmer than the low to mid 50's we're expecting for boston and much of the coastline for this afternoon as well. low pressure off the atlantic is bringing clouds onto the coastline for this afternoon. we're watching what's next, which, of course, is that big system bringing that rainfall. that moves in with a cold front as we move into late tonight into sunday morning. with that, we do see the high likelihood of showers.
8:17 am
snowfall? that will try to wrap behind the cold front bringing the chance of snowfall more likely to the mountains, but we could see flakes elsewhere. here's a look at that. the worcester hills sunday night especially could see a very light coating of snow trying to push through. in the lower elevations, where many of us live, possible flake or two, but really mostly staying outside of that snow chance. moving into the berkshires, though, that's where we see that close to 2-inch mark as we head into sunday n evening as well. your seven-day forecast includes big changes heading our way. we're going from the 50's down into the 40's tomorrow. and just about 40 as we head into monday as well. thanksgiving day, of course, all eyes are on that. temperatures will stay cool in the 40's, but that's also going to bring our next rainmaker. so with that pushing in, doug and rhondella, we see the next chance of a few snowflakes moving into the area. rhondella: thank you, kelly ann. the time is now 8:17.
