rain this hour from new bed forward to chatham, continuing to the cape and islands until 2:00 a.m. to our north the leading edge of that cooler is hit or miss showers. most of this will stay to our north thechlts showers are fizzling out as they're moving out. can't rule out a sprinkle in keehn or a few in manchester the next hour. for those areas slight chance of rain this evening, but a much better chance later on as we head through our holiday weekend. saturday night into sunday morning, there you see the time on your screen. got actually two fronts heading our way sunday that gives us two opportunities for rain, first again will be very early sunday morning, more like pre-dawn hours sunday morning. could be a good soaking. probably get a break in the action middle part of the day. second front arrives late in the day towards dinner time that one likely to bring us another round of showers, so two opportunities for rainfall through our sunday.
5:43 pm
through, much colder air finally makes it in here, more typical of derx probably the coldes air we've seen so far rolls into here sunday night into monday. that will make monday and tuesday some of the coldest days of the month so far, not that that's saying much but still looks like that cold air will be still around when our next storm system arrives begins to move in here tuesday morning. looks like it's not going to be cold enough that the rain won't be falling as rain but begin as snow before changing over to rain. so how much snow we are expecting, lots of uncertainty but so one possible fairio. i -- scenario. i think from boston south an east it will change to rain and probably wash away accumulation. this is just one possible
5:44 pm
another thing to consider, it's been so warm, the ground is so warm, the snow may not be able to stick that could reduce our accumulation. this is just one computer projection, an this is kind of the extreme on one side. the extreme on the other side says that it will be too warm and this will be almost all rain everywhere and we may under with no accumulation, so take this with a grain of salt because there is a lot of uncertainly. meantime, 50 degrees tomorrow afternoon for your saturday, chance of rain late saturday night, more like early sunday morning. brief break in the action sunday. another round of rain sunday night. breezy cooler monday and looks like snow changing to rain tuesday, finally winter weather for the beginning part of next workweek. >> and we are continuing to follow breaking news. ahead, a tense standoff in an everett home. we will show you more from an
