all right, boston, here it comes. this is the snow. this will be our event right here. back into western new england, hartford already winding down. this will be our chance to puck up accumulating snow and foul up roadways. i do think it's going to go back and forth, boston unparticular,
5:51 pm
warm air. you might have one of the situation where it's snowing in the city and 12 minutes later it's back to rain and back to snow. the air is cold enough from ground to sky where it's just snow flakes but there's been enough warm air to come in off the ocean so the lowest 1,000, 500 feet where it's just warm enough but it's such a vigorous weather system that it can grab cold air up in the cloud and overtake that mild air at the ground. so it will be battling back and forth for the snow and rain in the city of boston. farther inland it's all snow and for everyone it's all gone by 9:00, 10:00 tonight. i should say gone in the sense that accumulating snow is gone. that ain't going anywhere because the cold air is coming right behind this weather system. just west of interstate 95, west of 128.
5:52 pm
corridor, might be one or two bursts of steadier snow. and also in this white shading here, i've got coating to an inch, i wouldn't be shocked if one or two of you ended up with or two inches of snow. boston 37 right now, worcester 29, fitchburg at 29. auburn and new york at 29. toronto 1, buffalo at 20 degrees and that's the cold arctic air that takes hold. clearing skies later on there midevening with temperatures in the 20s. wind chills heading down into the teens and they will stay there for the day tomorrow. tomorrow blustery and skies. air temps 27 to 33. but it's more about the wind and the wind chill through the day despite the sunshine you'll have a wind advisory in effect. winds gusting in the metro around 40 miles per hour.
5:53 pm
minor power disruption at times and for everyone those wind chills are in the teens all day long. for thursday a mix of clouds and sunshine. not as windy on thursday with attempt in the lower 30s and then for friday, partly sunny skies milder on friday. the numbers on friday in the upper 30s to around 40 degrees. our next weather system comes at us on saturday. that is also tricky because again there's going to be just enough leftover mild air for friday that i think we actually start as rain in boston and the south shore, south of the pike and them as we work into the afternoon hours we'll see that rain change to and end to snow. is everyone okay over there? what happened? something get knocked over. you guys okay? worry about you guys. i'll see you guys at 6:00. hopefully everybody's healthy. >> it's all good. thank you. >> and there is some serious business in the news today.
