5:50 pm
drizzle and chilly wind. temps between 54 and 59, not noing all that much from the afternoon. -- not moving all that much from the afternoon. and tomorrow, a lot of clouds and pockets of drizzle and mist but i do think we're gonna see some sunshine tomorrow afternoon. especially the farther north and west you travel from the coast. so you notice here during the morning hours, the timeline still indicating the gray in the city of boston and clouds and even a couple of sprinkles and spot showers possible on the cape. there's no cloudiness from and jaffery and even down into worcester. so that's the drier air. and that will chew away at these clouds as we work in to tomorrow afternoon. in fact, might even get into some disenltd amount of sunshine in the city of boston tomorrow afternoon. so there's potential this could state your name into a nice fall day with fair amount of sunshine north and west of town. south of town a lot of clouds and we'll have the chilly wind, so temps upper 50s to the low 60s. north of town, this is where you get into more sunshine, and you
5:51 pm
southern new hampshire. low to mid 60s. raymond at 64... fitch but at 63. worcester at 61. and out on to the cape and the islands, you hold on to the clouds. mashpee 57 and nantucket at 58. then this storm system, which is a slow-mover slowly begins to approach the eastern seaboard by the end of the weekend. friday we'll start with sun and then clouds will show up in the afternoon. likely to be a couple of s temps on friday in the upper 50s. and then as this area of low pressure breaks down, falls apart, it will wobble across new england and the northeast. so that's likely to be our highest chance of some showers saturday and sunday. but again it won't be all day widespread rain. so outdoor activities, i think they're doable this weekend if you just have the rain gear on standby. right now it's a little too far away to time exactly when the raindrops happen on saturday, sunday but the risk is there. see you at 6:00.
