ahead, but a dry end to the week. dry this morning into the afternoon and even through tomorrow, it is saturday afternoon into sunday morning that the nor'easter arrives. too early to tell the exact track, and as we know the exact track of these it is critical but set up a fine rain and snow line and some set up something and others getting more. the storm is back over kansas and nebraska and down into parts of texas. so it still has to wind up and get across the deep south and the mid-atlantic and eventual the mid-atlantic and eventually off of our coast eventually off of our coastline. still time to keep tabs on things and mostly clear this morning with chilly temperatures. 15 mem lynn administer. boylston at 17. and over toward manchester 21 under a few clouds. 22 in boston. walpole at 17 degrees starting things off. we have temperatures in the load to mid-20s for the cape and islands with mostly sunny skies for the afternoon. check in with that boston planner, lunchtime upper 20s.

almost nothing for places like nantucket, almost nothing for southern new hampshire. and southern vermont. so we still have to at least consider that possibility as it still a long way away. even the national weather service noting that they will be happy if they be happy if they zero in 12 hours out. until this gets here saturday morning near the outer bakes hard to determine where it is headed. the european model and its uniform counterpart the gfs both trending farther off shore. the european seems to be consistent tampa seems to be leading the charge. so many times when the european can latch on. of course that can change but right now kind of like that model if i had to pick one. snow totals much more limited. all snow no rain mixing in but an inch or two with the higher amounts to the south as that storm moves offshore. seven-day forecast, of course all eyes on the weekend. still things to iron out. stay with us. i will update you as new
