split to -- braintree split to the pike and morning great time to get tickets and fight with any of the snow that maybe coming down in the evening. >> sara: this is why it is going to be easier to run errands and broken cloud cover and partly sunny skies this morning, lunchtime we will be into the clouds by the afternoon and evening commute and we are going to be into the snow in for some of you into the showers. 22 in boston now, got a lot of those high, thin clouds blotting out some of the blue skies and tomorrow with wind chill back into the single digits for the time being 26 9:00 a.m. in boston and 33 at 11:00 a.m. and we make it into the upper 30s which is why initially boston getting rain drops here at 5:00 p.m. but look at what
talking snowflakes and make the changeover in most spots pretty quickly, noon time there's the clouds i was mentioning, but initially things are going to start out very, very light and between three and 4:00, start to see a couple of the showers pop up along the coastline and southeastern mass a couple rain showers and inland in the form of flurries or some snowflakes and this is when kids are coming home from school but as kids head home from work, couple hours later in the evening commute and when things start to get sloppy because we have snow and pockets of heavy snow forming by 7:00 in the evening and during the evening commute and also we have a little rain mixing in for perhaps north shore, south shore, cape that's going to be rain for the evening commute, in and around the boston area points north and west, it is snow, going to be sticking, going to be sloppy out there, continues only through about 10:00 p.m. and this is not a very long duration storm, pretty fast more. the problem is the intensity of
could bring in some vast reductions in visibility and, of course, it could pile up kind of quickly. this is it for snow totals, expecting inch of snow, coating to inch here in southeastern massachusetts, west of 128 and 95, one to two inches as we do get a couple snow squalls in here, could see a couple spots three inches and best bet for that parts of southern new hampshire and southern vermont. so this afternoon i got boston up around 40 , norwood 40, plymouth 41 but 30s to the north and west and that's why we will start with snow in most of the spots and tonight it is cold enough for snow for everybody, we got temperatures back in the 20s, snow wraps up around midnight and tomorrow we move to 30 and comes with partly sunny skies and because it is going to be so windy here tomorrow, wind chills are going to be ongoing issue here. in fact, the winds tomorrow probably will be gusting around 40, 45 miles per hour as you can see throughout the day just
we will see a couple flurries as a result keeping it dry thursday to friday and then for the weekend we are going to see period of rain on saturday change over to snow and on sunday there's a potential for lingering flurries, sunday pick of the weekend because even though colder looking a lot dryer. back to you guys. >> gene: 7:51. most of us christmas tree went out to the curb last week but instead of throwing them in the trash or town picking them up, good use in coast and protecting homes from future storms.
