5:44 pm
in a package just yet. but put to the this graphic yesterday to show some months, some years rather where we've seen hardly any snow throughout the month of december and then how that turned out for the season total. it looks like last year really that anomaly. what we need to focus on too is neither of these years were el nino years and we are again under a strong el nino pattern so when we look at el nino winters, we get more snow in december but still most of the years, most of the seasons do turn out about average or below average for the entire season. now it only takes about one storm to actually see this much snow or more than that and that can still happen again. it's only december 4. however, we're in this pattern right now where the cold arctic air is locked up north. we need that to meet up with the storm track that is staying to our south and that's just not happening at this point. we really have dry conditions for the weekend insuring the sunshine. the warming trend is on the way
5:45 pm
weather really does continue for us. current temperatures in the mid 40's for most. low 40's for worcester, 41 right now and a nicer day for us because we didn't have the wind. we had yesterday. bit of a president as you can worcester, 12 mile-per-hour winds in boston. out of the west for the most part but we will see those winds continue to calm as we head through the night. and the clouds that have moved in for us, keeping mostly cloudy skies above the bay state right now will keep the temperatures from free falling overnight tonight. so temperatures i think may be staying in the mid 30's for most as long as those clouds stick with us for longer than i think. i think we'll keep them into the morning hours and you see a few of those snow showers are popping up in northern new england. that does not make it into our neighborhood. we have high pressure that's mov moving in for us and that will again insure that we have the dry conditions and the sunshine for us and we'll also help to boost temperature as we're under a southwest flow this weekend.
5:46 pm
tonight to mostly clear tomorrow morning and that may be a little too slow for those lows but i think generally speaking we're above the freezing mark in most locations. then tomorrow sunshine, milder temperatures, 47 to 55 for those highs so this is what we're looking at for saturday. low 50's for most, we will see a bit of a sea breeze so i think coastal areas will be the cool coolest, especially cape cod and into sunday look what happens with those temperatures. breaking 60 degrees in some spots, we've got the sunshine, it's warm upstairs, southwest flow, why not? it could happen. then as we head into next week there is a storm system that wants to come in but the bulk of it stays to the southeast of us. might be a ing blow of some light showers and also some breezy conditions but that looks to be it for now. i have put a rain drop on the all that confident. i don't think most of us see it. also pats forecast for us really mild for this time of year. we were watching that game in
5:47 pm
