meteorologist shiri spear joining us now. unfortunately that fog not going to let up quite yet. >> shiri: no, fog and rain here to stay for the day ahead. we have had mostly light rain impacting the area this morning and you can see it is nice and broken up but we still got all of this to go so we still got so many showers to get out of the picture before we can finally dry out now. we are catching a little bit of a break here along and really outside of 128. it is not going to be long lasting though because by lunchtime i'm seeing widespread rain again. so 42 right now in boston. we got clouds, we got drizzle, we got fog ongoing through the rest of the day and see how slow temperatures are to respond, 44 by 11:00 a.m., upper 40s during the afternoon hours. i actually expect that we are going to hit the high for the day very late, so probably about 11:59 tonight we get today's high and tomorrow the high probably at midnight tonight and then you will start to cool down so future cast here by noon time today, we got the showers filling back in, it is going to
for any of the lunchtime plans and we just stick with on and off all throughout the afternoon here. even into the evening hours we are going to have to watch for a couple pockets of heavier rain embedded within the light stuff. though most of what we see today is going to be light to moderate showers, pushing offshore by the time you get up on thursday morning. all we are left with whole lot of cloud cover and even couple sprinkles down across the coastline here. it is not going to be a lot of wet weather tomorrow morning. more than anything we deal with partly to mostly cloudy skies, increasing winds, winds will be gusting 30 to 40 miles per hour and also when i see a set-up like this where it is a little unsettled, it is very blustery. we got a good situation here to get some flurries, even where you're not seeing them in southern new england. northern new england that's where we get some accumulation here. no accumulation for the day tomorrow. it is just some flurries. so high temperatures today do work their way up to about 48 in
in keene, new hampshire, lower 50s from plymouth down to the cape and islands and so those temperatures as i said, i think it is going to take awhile to get there and even though it looks similar for your highs tomorrow, here is the deal. keep in mind that it is going to be cooling down and turning windy through the day, so even though boston is going to start off the morning around 50 at 6:00 a.m., we drop it to 48 by. >> amy:j and lunchtime 47 and by 4:00 p.m. about 45 . now, it is going to be back into the 40s on friday, nice and bright and it is going to be bright into the weekend as well. kind of tough pick of the weekend because both days looking equally gorgeous but if looking toward warmer temperatures look toward sunday when roll back into the 50s, 5 cooler for saturday afternoon but the sun continues into monday and eventually we get those increasing clouds back in the picture by tuesday. back to you guys.
