8:40 am
morning woke up to frosty start in many locations and it is still pretty cloudy in boston and got lower visibility and temperatures right now 38 and with the wind it feels like it is below freezing, so bundle up again, have the layers, but having fairly mild day, compared to normal and usually december, boston, this time of year, in the 40s and we are starting off cold, 20s and 30s, but we have milder conditions for the cape and islands right now. we have some clouds thinning out to the north and west but i have been tracking fog all morning long, really watching for the possibility of freezing fog which is just fog at the -- in places where temperatures are below freezing and cause slippery spots, and keene still continues to report very low visibility but seeing improvement in places like norwood, limited down across the southeast but expecting not too much in the way of any problems due to the fact that temperatures are above freezing in those locations.
8:41 am
climb through the morning through the 40s with breaks in the cloud cover, partly to mostly sunny skies this afternoon and we will get into the 50s. now, once the sun sets at 4:11, temperatures will take a dive but notice what happened around 8:00, clouds back into the region and that's ahead of a coastal storm i'm tracking that will bring risk of showers to some locations. so today enjoy the mild spring like conditions. i guess you could say as temperatures will be in the 50s. winds out of the southeast will turn to the north and then tonight find temperatures 30s and 40s the most part and still wouldn't be surprised to see a few upper 20s, further north and west you go, below freezing places like manchester to worcester and even though we will be dealing with cloud whyer whyer -- cloudier skies and best chance of showers likely for the vineyard and nantucket while the chance will increase tomorrow across the southeast. you notice tomorrow too a lot
8:42 am
highs dramatically different in the 40s. but this is where we should be this time of year. this is actually the average high. so i guess it is what we can expect for early december and risk for showers that i had be tracking because high pressure will move to the east and notice this area of rain right here, that will be coastal storm that will be mainly offshore but it will increase the threat of showers especially across the cape and islands tomorrow and then it will move on out of here and break in the action and then a weak cold front come on through on thursday bringing better chance of shower to the region as we will be watching that closely. mild conditions this afternoon with sunshine as high pressure scoots to the east and here we are watching the system develop off the coast, most of it pushes offshore, so we are really lucking out with the system and northwestern edge of it likely to graze southcoast cape and islands with few showers and notice by tomorrow morning that's where we can anticipate clouds around and first few rain
8:43 am
hour, watch how they will go and latest timeline coming up on the fox25 morning news later on tonight and i am expecting most of the moisture continue to push offshore with improvements late in the day. of course, wednesday i mention mix of sun and clouds but here is weakening cold front. not a lot of moisture with it from this particular projection but we will have to watch it closely as it heads our way thursday and likely bring us risk of showers and boy, do we need the rain. we are well below average as closing out the last month of the year and still in moderate drought for the region. so taking look at 7-day forecast i want to show you weekend always in view because it does get better. although today temperatures in the 50s we take it, drop back to near normal conditions with slight chance of showers southeast, less than tenth of inch and wednesday we dry out, thursday we could see showers up to quarter of inch in some spots and really have to watch the trend by the weekend
8:44 am
