7:18 am
temperatures still hovering close to freezing. inland towns and cities may still be freezing. cool, cloudy sums it up and 1:00 p.m. 42? and going to stick with just the clouds and at 5:00 for dinner 39?. slight chance of some drizzle or some flurries. i could say that throughout the day, very slight chance out there, best bet actually going to be tonight to see some wet weather. 46? in boston this afternoon, 47 in plymouth. how about near 50? in new bedford or hyannis vineyard. cool spots today will include the merrimack valley, southern new hampshire and worcester hills and barely get up to 40 this afternoon. there you go. a little blast as i mentioned flurries and sprinkles possible during the day. that 1 blast coming through between about 9 and 11:00 this morning between worcester, boston and north shore. not really going to be list anything, folks and little flavor of wet weather out there, so just theths heads up.
7:19 am
and not a lot of rain showers and showers turn in again and potential that we will have some mexing with some snow. too warm for anything to stick outside of the mountains here. so we will be looking at monadnocks, green or white mountains for accumulation here but overnight tonight the transition over to just plain rain continues. so we kind of weed out the light snowflakes in favor of some drizzle here to friday we got showers on and off throughout the day so already planning to hit the shops early tomorrow morning i got midnight temperatures here in the 30s, chance for rain around most of us should stay above freezing or just watching northern worcester hills, southern new hampshire for couple icy spots. 7:00 a.m. 40? and dry breaks between showers tomorrow, so not a complete washout, but drizzle chances here at noon at 47 and at 5:00 in the evening you're going to actually find the rain
7:20 am
friday evening. keeping very close eye on weekend forecast because watching in latest update actually brings coastal storm even a little bit closer here. the closer it gets the heavier band of rain will be right over the coastline. so big concern here will be heavy reason at the coast, inland more like mountain snow on saturday and as it starts to pull away on sunday we could still be dealing with a little bit of moisture. if whole thing tracks a little further out to sea though what you will find is ends up being mostly missed. surrounding the weekend forecast right now and can tell you we are watching the coastal storm, we are here to bring you latest, updates every couple hours. today watching for a little bit of drizzle, a little bit of flurry action, most of the day dry at 42, those 40s are going strong straight through the weekend, even into next week. monday finally our next bright day. back to you, gene. >> shiri, 7:20 now. christmas tradition lost bit of sparkle and investigation underway to find dozens of

7:48 am
chance for getting couple sprinkles and flurries and talking worcester hills, merrimack valley, southern new hampshire, and hour-by-hour look with future cast. 9:00 a.m. rolls around. we are still going to help with freezing in worcester and upper 30s in boston and we got 40s on the cape and you can see the clouds not going anywhere. i wanted to pause things up at 11:00 and can see slight risk for some snow, some rain certainly out there, boston it would tend to be probably a lawrence or bedford and nashua and it would end up being a couple flurries. temperature a little too warm to get anything to really stick. so 1 or 2 wet roadways but honestly most of the day is dry, do watch out though if you're driving home later on tonight because starting at about 5:00, 6:00, showers picking up, spotty showers and actually continue overnight and best chance for snow though will continue in southwestern new hampshire. couple snowflakes could still be
7:49 am
or nashua, even here at 6:00 tonight. but as i mentioned not really going to do any sticking so, you know, wet roadways. tomorrow morning we do have temperatures just above freezing but we have also got rain in your forecast tonight and into black friday. overnight low in boston 42. so obviously not concerned about any icy spots there. spots like keene, new hampshire or orange, see how close we are to freezing and those are communities and northern worcester hills and southwestern new hampshire and in particular watch fo a there and most of us are going to be too mild to really see anything lock up on the roadways tonight, tomorrow we got temperatures and mid-, even upper 50s, a little warmer than today, but we do have the chance for some spot rain continuing into your friday. now, as we get into saturday, risk for rain really starts going up. we got a coastal storm we are watching, still uncertain exactly the track of the system and if it comes closer, that batch of heavy reason is going to be right across eastern mass and eastern new hampshire.
7:50 am
heavy reason, along the coastline, some snow mixing in in mountains and lingers into sunday we could see snow mixing in eastern at the coastline and also the potential it is going to move a little bit further out to sea and end up as mostly miss and ton to iron out with the weekend forecast and want you to be aware right now there's a weather maker out there and it could impact the local forecast. temperatures expected in the 40s over the weekend, should start a little bit milder here on saturday and then cool down on sunday. 7-day forecast with the weekend always in view, jst overnight tonight and into your friday, we do have spot rain, temperature in the upper 40s tomorrow, 48? on saturday with heavy rain possibly and couple flurries and even sprinkles into your sunday. and next sunny day you're going to have to wait until monday of next week. back to you guys. >> sara: 10-year-old boston girl home for the holidays after

8:49 am
new hampshire. no widespread isis expected right now. of course, watch temperatures closely. tomorrow 42 to 50?, some spot showers here for your friday. said don't have a ton of rain today or tomorrow. this weekend that could change because this coastal storm attracts close enough this band of heavy rain and plant it right over eastern new england and potential definitely there and problem is we are not certain of the exact track this will take if it inches offshore a little bit more and end up being a mostly miss. still a lot to weekend forecast. right now i do think we have the potential of heavy rain along the coastline. temperatures will be stuck in the 40s. i do have a little bit of warm-up though. got to go a little bit far down the line here and you could see temperatures warming into next week. both days over the weekend risk for showers, best chances saturday, sunday i'm going to keep some flurries, sprinkles and that forecast a little bit cooler with high of 44. 48? on monday as we finally get a bright day in the forecast.
