very slow speeds of 9 miles per hour as the average speed stretching back to route 9 in framingham. but things will open up and reflected in the drive time a little bit slow on route 9. people got the memo to use that as a detour because pike was so slow. the drive time at 6:33. we were at 41 minutes. but things are looking so much better. we are down to 23 minutes. so moving in the right direction. meteorologist rob eicher joining us now. at least we didn't have to deal with any sort of fog in addition to that accident this morning. >>rob: no, no fog. when the sun comes up after 7:00, we will have wall-to-wall sunshine. despite the sunshine, it will be a little cooler. flurries on sunday. 70s yesterday. in case you are curious, 59 is where you will be this time of year, and a couple of degrees either side of that. sunday is the warmer day and comes with a threat of some hours. if you were headed out to the fox25 high school football game of the week, 48 degrees in
middleborough this evening. now that thank is when the game gets going at 7:00. when the game finishes up earlier on in the evening 41. temperatures will cool quickly later this evening. keep that in mind if you were headed out for a high school football game or any plans you have out on the town. much cooler if you are coming back then when you were getting out to whatever event you were going to. low 50s for saturday and low 60s on sunday pretty much across the board. again sunday definitely the warmer day of the two weekend days but comes with that threat for showers. spotty showers. hit or miss across the area and, again, that will be mainly on sunday morning. currently 50 in bourne. 52 in the vineyard. 58 in nantucket. 51 currently in boston. 43 in foxborough and 43 in brockton. 42 in fitchburg, and 44 in worcester. now nose numbers not all that cold for october standards. nothing to write home about, but those numbers will hold steady.
yesterday, temperatures jumped 20 degrees from the morning through the afternoon. today not so much. a few spots get colder in the middle of the day despite full sunshine. nothing to show you here on the local satellite and radar. no rain to trap it. no fog to track this morning. the showers that we did have yesterday were courtesy of a front. into the atlantic behind a cold front as you might expect. got a little cooler and hence tonight. clear skies for a couple of states and there is our next chance of rain currently over in nebraska. that is the next front. that will get here on sunday morning. that front that brings us that next chance of rain. a little breezy through the first half of the day today but the winds will calm down this afternoon and be almost dead calm by this evening. that is the problem. anytime you have clear skies and calm winds, temperatures plummet as soon as the sun sets plummet as soon as the sun sets. that is what we are expecting and lead to a cool start on the day on saturday and many of us waking up in the 30s.
clouds roll in later month day. mostly sunny in the morning. kind of partly sunny in the afternoon hours as clouds coming in advance of our next chance of rain, and there it is chance of rain, and there it is. a little bit of green on the map. green indicating the rain. not whole lot of green, so not expecting a whole lot of rain on sunday but the good news is mainly sunday morning as the front sweeps through, clear keys roll in and cooler weather to start off the early part of next workweek. 55 today. 54 on saturday. if you were going to the game. pats versus -- versus the jets. hard to get that word out and you can understand why. 60 degrees at 1:00 on saturday. rather on sunday and rather the chance of rain in the morning hours and not expecting any rain to impact the games. a little bit cooler for the early part of next workweek. best chance of rain in the seven-day forecast will come on thursday. well, rob, one thing we won't be seeing anymore, snow farms the things of the past in boston. public works commissioner
