right there and i can't believe it's flying away but you get the idea. swimming away. >> anchor: it's monday. pete, good news there and the forecast warming up this week . >> anchor: it is eventually. we'll get into that. i think that was his plan all along just to sun himself on the beach with the tide comes in. it was a sunny day but a cold one to be on beach. that's for sure. highs only in the lower 40's. mid 45 out provincetown and 45 hyannis but 37 in worcester, 38 in orange for highs today. yikes, we should be around 49 for a high in boston. now 37 in winthrop and melrose. we're less to freezing just a few degrees above it in wellesley. tyngsboro just about there, 34, 36 boxford a ground hardening freeze tonight. this is one that will go deep into the group. not a whole lot of frost because dewpoints are so low. the dry sterling at freezing. so is shrewsbury then down to south shore. 38 scituate. 40 west wareham right now. low 40's through the cape and islands. the game tonight as you might expect cold.
4:19 pm
average temperature although as we get later and later into the second half i think that may dip down to 27 or 26 degrees. light northwest wind steady but light, just enough to in my opinion at you but it's not going to be all that nasty in term of wind. wind should settle down in many cases as that high begins to move in. clouds on the move. legislate, there is some lake effect there but a lot of those clouds start to manufacture our way going into later ton and tomorrow they will be with us. big dip in the jet stream allows the cold air to go down into the mid-atlantic so this is a cold snap not just for new england but for a lot of folks in the mid-atlantic and great lakes too but this is temporary. just a little bump in the road. then we rebuild high pressure in here, we warm it up once again, we'll be prone to more cool downs now but it does look like we'll go back and forth. no real pattern establishing here in the next 7 to ten days. warm then cool then warm but
4:20 pm
none of it really could with a big storm system. just fronts passing by. tomorrow's high temperatures in the lower 40's, even 39 at chilly temperature in worcester, 44 in plymouth and about 45 in west barnstable. so tonight, clear start then clouds late. 16 to 28 with a light northwest wind. tomorrow not much of a rebound despite the fact that a southwest win is around. i know i have said southwest winds are warming winds but not always. this might be one of those cases cases. 38 to 44 not really tapping into the warmth. that doesn't happen until we get into friday. there is your 7 day forecast with a semimild thanksgiving. i mean, it's not like 60 like black friday but it's definitely milder than it will be over the next two days. we might have some rain late friday night and saturday morning very early. but i think i'm going to keep that off the 7 day. better chance for wet weather going into monday as temperatures moderate a little bit. i will see you at 4:30 . >> anchor: time now for 7's fast track traffic. here is joe staple ton with a check of the roads . >> anchor: thanks very much, liz beth. getting a look right now around
