5:14 am
much of today and even early tomorrow morning as well. here's a breakdown of what we're seeing. zoom in. boston is dry. this extent of the very light rain is trying to make its way to 128. a lot of this isn't falling yet. keep that in mind. it's mainly as we move into this dark green color that we're seeing the rain falling. that's much of worcester county just west of 495 and extending westward. that's where we're seeing the steadiest of showers along the mass pike as well, moving westward where we eventually see that snow line in. mainly for the berkshires. that's where we see the likelihood of heavier accumulations of snowfall, especially for elevations above 1500 feet. that's where the winter storm warnings are really going into effect where we could see upward of half a foot of snow if not more, especially extending through the green mountains. low pressure in place. that's circulating that cold air along with that snow chance. if we see anything outside of the mountains, likely just a few flakes, something we're watching for later on today.
5:15 am
degrees in boston, 30's as we push westward with pittsfield at 32 degrees. you're heading out right now. that's as warm as we're going to get today. temperatures are going to struggle to get any warmer. we're topping out in the low to mid 40's. those winds gusting near 40 to even 50 miles per hour will make the temperatures feel like it's just about 30 degrees out there. and that will be the case throughout not only today but much of tomorrow as well. here's that rain track. it's pushing into downtown boston as we inch closer to the 6:00 a.m. hour. the question is where's the snow? and at this point most of that is staying west into the berkshires. as we move toward the late morning to early afternoon, notice how some of that rain/snow mix extends out toward the worcester hills. so some of the higher hills could see some grassy coating with that snow pushing eastward. notice how that sticks around into the evening as well. dry along the coastline onto the cape. some of those lingering clouds
5:16 am
early tomorrow morning. could see a few flakes moving toward some of the lower elevations, but most of us will be missing out on accumulations. so we're talking about a few wet snowflakes as this rain comes to an end. heavier accumulations as you push westward and those mountains seeing closer to even 8 inches of snow on the highest of elevations. your seven-day forecast, we are cooling down to 40's tomorrow, feeling like 30. we h single digits for much of tomorrow. now we inch closer to thanksgiving. with that we do see temperatures staying on the lower end of the scale. highs in the 40's. and, in fact, for thanksgiving day, our next chance of rain approaches the area and likely sticks around for much of thanksgiving weekend as well. antoinette: it is cooling down. kelly ann, thank you. 5:16. taking a look at some of the other stories we're following right now. doug: two people under arrest in connection with the killing of a

5:20 am
build that material using 3d printers. >> the robot on the left when it lands bounces much less. mike: the printers change how impact is absorbed. here, the black robot has a special skin that prevents bounce and gives a more precise landing. >> we added liquid to it. the liquid basically helps absorb the energy and keep it in to the design process is using tiny drops of liquid throughout the material. >> here's a standard material. bounces pretty normally. here's our augmented material. mike: the work in the lab is focused on robots, but the more mainstream use, better protection inside helmets, stronger cell phones, and in space, m.i.t.'s material could help a rover land on target while reducing impact on electronics inside. >> we're still dreaming about
