7:50 am
into the 1:00 p.m. time slot here so between one and three the best bet for showers in boston, i expect by 5:00 they will be out of the city and this afternoon, really, really warm near 60 in norwood, would not be surprised to see you guys get up to 60 there, 56 in boston and lawrence, 51 in worcester, 50 in hyannis, it is balmy. tonight 20s and 30s back, we got passing clouds and then tomorrow and 42 in boston, 45 in lawrence, 48 in norwood, 53 in worcester, so almost 10 cooler tomorrow afternoon. notice we have high pressure sliding away and that means we are going to see increasing clouds during the day as we head late into tuesday night, we have the potential for icing mix and pretty quickly on wednesday, 56 cooldown the end of the week and highs close to freezing thursday and friday and chance for snow as we look at friday night but
