5:21 pm
morning so air temperatures really don't mean a whole lot when you have that wind kicking like it is, sustained winds right now in worcester 25 miles per hour, 20 miles per hour in bedford and gusts are getting close to 40 miles per hour and those winds will strengthen into tomorrow. you can see to our west that the logan airport snow machine is kicking pretty good and it's taking those lines of snow all the way through new york state and into western mass but we even have a few snow showers that have popped up along the mass pike just south of worcester. i saw a brief snow shower report of one near north millford so that could be the case as we head through the overnight hours as those winds keep craiging out of the west northwest it could bring just enough moisture in and instability to pop a quick snow shower or snow squall. i think most likely we'll be south of the mass pike. overnight tonight windy and cold nine to 18 for your air temperatures so while we do see these temperatures on the thermometer reading this is what it will feel like and that's
5:22 pm
ten below in worcester. four below in boston. heading how tomorrow to the bus stop might be a shock for kids that had today off of school. those wind strengthen into tomorrow afternoon where they were gusting between 30 and 40 today they will be gusting between 40 and 50 miles per hour tomorrow and wednesday still a bit blustery but not quite as winnie as today and tomorrow. all day tomorrow we do have that wind advisory in effect and for the rest of tonight that wind advisory is already in effect for cape cod and islands. now the big question is, what's up with this weekend? i know you wish i could give you more details but it's like i'm driving from point a to point b and i tell you i will be there from 45 minutes but i just don't know how how many times i will hit traveling careful lot could saturday. track still to be determined, line. where does that set up. how much wind do we see. one thing i'm certain of is there is a full moon on saturday so that could lead to coastal manifest. but we are going to continue to
