5:48 pm
and this is a lot of rain that is associated with this tropical system. something that we sure could use, but obviously not all at one time. speaking of chances of rain, we have that in our forecast. a little bit lower for the day tomorrow, but still, spotty drizzle is likely in some spots and by friday into saturday, we'll be watching for morsteadier rain to arrive and that may linger into sunday, because we've got a lot going on in the atmosphere. got a roadblock goin and on drizzle through this week, with steadier rain arriving through the weekend and finally, that pattern will break, as we head in to next week, but of course, we'll also be keeping an eye on the tropics, so what we've got going on. high pressure to our north, dip town tonight into tomorrow. provides sunshine to the north and west. we a frontal system to our south that is trying to advance northward. it won't tomorrow, but once we get in to friday and saturday, it will bring some of the rain that's pushing through the
5:49 pm
upper level loaf out to the west, so really where this system goes, it's going to really have an impact on exactly how much rain we could see from this front and how close it will get. a lot going on, but this is how it looks like it's going to play out, at least right now. lots of clouds out there. winds off of the water, keeping temperatures mostly in the 50's. and we do have some areas of drizzle, so it will be intermittent type of previous description, a few raindrops here or there on the windshield, you may need if you're going to be headed out shortly t in boston, the wind out of the northeast, 21 miles per hour, gusts out there, have been reported over 20 across our coastal locations and over the cape and islands. tonight, we will see winds relax slightly, but still persistent, so a bit breezy with the temperatures. not falling back too much in boston, but to the north and west, we could see temperatures falling back into the 40's. hour-by-hour, another cool day on tap as highs are only going to be in the upper 50's to near 60 degrees with that cloud cover
5:50 pm
so that means more chances of spotty drizzle here and there. with a little bit of sunshine to the north and west, high pressure tries to dip ton down, we could see a little bit of a bump in those temperatures to the 60's, but the further south and east you are, better chance you're going to see the clouds as well as that spot drizzle. let me show you through futurecast. this is 7:00 a.m. in the morning. noticing northern new england, you have high pressure in control, so better chance of sunshine. how far does that sunshine reach, does it make it to the boston area? i think it might be hard with that wind o breaks develop. then the clouds increase again on friday and steadier rain looks to arrive as we head into the second half of the day and that will continue into saturday as well. some areas as we head on over the next several days could see anywhere from one to two inches rain as the chances will linger into monday, but by mid next week, looks as though we should start to see some improvement. there's the latest look at your forecast.
