the warm air to come in. once the warm air comes in, the wind will ramp up, too. but right now warm air seems to be stuck across connecticut and back into rhode island and out through cape cod. it's tarting to move in there. just over the last couple of hours, it's coming together pretty good. you can see that out on route 2 through gardner all the way to brookline, new hampshire. starting to move into metro west, at least on the 495. wet methuen and wilmington, heavier rain through stow and clinton, mass. look at the line. how distinct is this. it's like a straight line right now. it looks like just outside of needham, right over dover and then down into almost the area. it's marching eastbound. here it comes in stoughton. too. you can see that back through worcester. the rain translates east. there will be a window of a couple of hours where we could get a gust to 30 miles per hour.
it's also at that time that temperatures should spike. we should run right up to 60 degrees and be right there by morning. so our wettest time is now until about 3:00 a.m. and starts to drop a little bit by 6:00 a.m. and then by 9:00 a.m., we're dry. so early morning commuters looks like we'll have the best chance for seeing rain. that being between 4:00 and 5:00. but after about 7:00, it get better and better and better. if you can delay it, it's even better. now rainfall amounts close to an inch. although i'm a little bit more optimistic at seeing that out through in -- in addition -- nashua and fitchburg. kind of just reflects some of the wind. the wind is just off the surface, just above skyscraper level and waits for the continues to rise, too. look at the 63. a lot of 60s through jersey, greater new york. that comes up with that front and with this weather system and
tomorrow. 60 degrees it's up to you for lunch. isn't it always. the front is offshore. and the front is taking with it the clouds. but not really hitting us with cold air until we get into the weekend. we have to wait for this guy to pass through with a morning shower and then the cold rushes in. that's sunday. 50 degrees. monday you feel it. 471. normal high temperature about 50 and a breeze, too. downpours and wind possible with periods of rain tonight. early rain and then clearing. mild tomorrow. 57 to 62. winds turning northwest. we step back a little bit on saturday. 53. cooler at the coast. maybe 40s with the on shore wind and then sunday 50. and then it's quiet next week. yeah, travel looks good. thanksgiving looks good. a slow warm-up. we'll see you tomorrow. >> kim: all right. thank you, pete. it was show time tonight at the wang theatre in boston for a special presentation of elf the musical. >> adam: kim and i got to kick off 7 news night in support of a great cause.

>> announcer: and now time for 7 sports with joe amorosino. >> the bruins entered the night with the worst home record in the atlantic division and keeping some sad company near the bottom of the stands, they needed a win tonight against the minnesota wild and thanks to a loui eriksson hat trick, they got one.
the swede coming in with six goals on the season. he'd pad that total in a big way tonight. game tied at up with, eriksson centering the pass, kim -- kicks off the skate. later in the period, bruins power play still rolling. patrice bergeron digs off the loose puck. eriksson there to tip it in. 3-1 bruins. the wild would get back into it, though. jordan schrader is there to redirect the pass. and the bees led it, but it was cut to one. and here we go. eriksson's night. he was unstoppable. third period, converts with david krejy leading the bruins to the win. all right. the way he talks about the patriots, rex ryan sounds like a jilted ex than a guy who has beaten bill belichick four times in 14 career match-ups. >> you know how i feel about him
and things like that. but i'm always dumb tired of saying, you know, he's the best. yeah, no kidding. and anybody who says he's not is full of whatever. with that being said, i'm going to say he's not very good. [laughter] >> stopping rob gronkowski is a defenses. but sometimes it's the guys in the striped shirts who do it for them. don't expect him to switch his game up, though. >> no. i ain't doing anything wrong. >> do you feel that? do you feel that way? >> yeah. he ain't changing my style. >> how frustrating has that been for you? >> we're playing well as an offense. it's not that frustrating when i get the penalty and someone else makes a play on third and long. that definitely helps out right there. >> college hoops. b.c. hosting central connecticut state.
