weather and i'm going to take out and temperatures so close to freezing that within the hour see the threat dissolve. in the boston area, worcester area, shading so light here most of the drying before it ever gets down to the ground, but the gist of it here, rain already in place, check out boston at 41 , we got cloudy skies, winds running at 12 miles per hour now and gusts later today will be up around 35 miles per hour even strong and her evening thunderstorms and 44 and 49 at 1:00 p.m., get into the 50s this afternoon but we see the heavier rain pop up a little bit later on. i'm thinking and 3:00 and 5:00 kids coming home from school as well as the evening commute. keene at 37 . we got clouds, a little bit of light rain out that direction but 41 at 11:00 a.m., lower 40s will rise into the middle 40s by 3:00 this afternoon. by 9:00 p.m., see how late we
by 9:00 p.m. we are up around 50 and got the risk for all day rain, and at that we will see heavier rain out across southwestern new hampshire, so through 10:00 this morning, i mean the drizzle a little bit underdone in northern massachusetts and southern new hampshire and northward, by 1:00 starts filling in, drifting further south and east and downpours and on top of that we will have the breeze, that's why the evening commute bit more concerning and showers coming through and i don't know if you noticed the blast of red on map 8:00 p.m., that's potential for thunderstorm out there and way that's lining up even indicates we could see a squall line here and we will have to watch for a couple pockets of heavier wind within those.
showers will linger into tomorrow morning out across southeastern massachusetts as the rest of the region dries out, so north and west of boston and so slow and even on the cape chance for snow and rain on friday and all day 30s and partly sunny over the weekend and slight risk of snow, better chance here on tuesday, that one coming together somewhat stronger storm system with rain and snow. back to you guys. >> daniel: big personality taking on biggest game of the
