the morning, you don't see very much popping up on future cast because it will be primarily just a little bit of mist that comes with the fog, but after about 1 p.m., southeastern massachusetts will be the more likely area to see some showers reaching up to about boston, so for the evening commute, mass pike southward is where you have the best rils can of showers, but there is that slight chance all the way up to the mass new hampshire border as you hit the evening hours and things start to wind down. as you make your way into the 7 to 10 p.m. thyme frame, i expect the showers to push offshore. heaviest rain from the cape and islands where there is a potential for half an inch of rain in boston itself. we are probably talking between 1 and 2/10 of an inch and trace amounts to the north and west where it is much, much lighter and we see far fewer showers. we have more breaks of sunshine we have more breaks of sunshine, in fact, the further west you go. you may want to go to keene at 44 and orange at 44 to see
worcester should see a couple of breaks in the clouds. and 50 in plymouth and that's where we will have the rain. southeastern massachusetts, sorry, you guys, going to be another wet day. highs over the weekend, at least we dry out tomorrow. we are likely going to stay dry versus inland areas which we will see a couple of flurries. highs lower 50s cape and island both said as we travel a little bit further northward. lower 40s up and down the coastline. a lot more cloud cover tomorrow and then further inland door sunopee, laconia, why we will look out for some of the flurries that we will be mentioning. the next chance will be pittsfield out toward the berkshires and will mining noon southern vermont. i could see a couple getting through southern new hampshire to the worcester hills. not going to be able to stick to anything and as we move into the sunday forecast, things brighten up very nicely now. more cloud cover out west again because a little closer to our
