6:48 am
passing through until tomorrow. that means today ends up being dry, 8:00 a.m., 71 in boston, upper 60s, lower 70s in the 'burbs. still looking mostly sunny. by noontime, clouds scattering up, in particular north of botch. temperatures by lunchtime 77 in boston. 81 in lawrence, 77 in worcester. lower 80s in norwood. mid 70s for the outer cape and then into the afternoon we go. and you sue he a little more of that white on the map and that's going to end up being more of the scattered clouds all things considered, it's going to be a bright day. we've got 80s inland, we've got in 70s at the beaches here and even if you're out on sunday night at 8:00 p.m., i've still got temperatures in the low to mid 70s. so still writ approximate warm out there under partly cloudy skies. so let's check out some of the highs for today because it does end up, depending on where you are, it ends up being a little cooler than yesterday. spots like boston, yesterday, at 83 degrees, today, it's going to
6:49 am
well. 70s over the cape and islands. step away from the coastline and go further west, we've got upper 80s in norwood. in fitchburg today, nashua, new hampshire about 86 degrees. it is going to be warm today. it's going to feel summer like with the moderate humidity and then low temperatures tonight back in the upper 60s mostly with increasing clouds. i think most of us end up staying dry tonight and into the day tomorrow. but there will be some spot shower half of your monday. it's also warm and it's muggy tomorrow. the humidity is rising. we've got about 90 possibly in norwood. upper 60s in spots like boston and lawrence, over to worcester at 83 degrees. probably low and mid 80s for the cape. and that warm, muggy, up ahead of this cold front. so this is 8:00 tomorrow morning. this cold front is going to stir up more in the way of clouds than showers. but keep in mind for the morning commute and even lunch time tomorrow because the front is in
6:50 am
ahead and along it. there's not that much moisture out there, though. so what i think is going to end up happening, i think by the time the front moves through, the moist air is going to be pushing out. we've got a situation where it's not going to be good to get a lot of showers out of it. it's probably going to end up drying up in most towns and cities. by 4:00 p.m., as the front is moving off shore, skies clearing out. late monday actually turning brighter, turning more comfortable. today, tomorrow, partly to even mostly cloudy skies at times with a chance of a showers in the morning and middle of the day. 80 degrees on tuesday, looking nice and bright, the next chance of showers rolls in on wednesday evening into thursday morning. then it feels fall like by the end of the week with lows in the 50s on friday and saturday. and highs only in the 70s. back to you consider. >> a community in the south gathers to remember a pair of
