arrowhead at minnesota, a snow storm continues. we will see the heavy snow in southern new england -- we will see a big change in air mass and that storm will take the cloudiness from this ocean system which has been producing some swell towards cape cod and the storyline. it will bring the low clouds and. you can see that the line is about on chatham right now. you will see those moving westbound. across southeastern massachusetts, the islands, into boston harbor and towards the cave. inland, you have a beautiful day. we will be -- be dealing in and out of the clouds for many areas of eastern massachusetts tomorrow. tomorrow night, sunset, the clouds is extend inward and we were talking about and overcast night with mist and fog and we are going to bring in the colder air for sunday. well into the 50s inland, brighter skies tomorrow, gorgeous in northern new
cloudiness. all told, not a bad day and a good day to get out in the yard and take care of business. tomorrow night of the tree lighting looks excellent, clouds, mist of the harbor and temperatures in the 40s. we go towards sunday morning, the change time, band of showers moving through on sunday morning and after that the temperatures hold in the middle 40s, the colder air will start moving in and the wind will pick up. a lot of cloud cover on sunday and a chance for the best chance if you want to wet your snow appetite will be a trip west of the berkshires, 2 inches to 4 inches in northern berkshire county, and i think northern vermont will do really well with this. throughout sunday and monday. scattered cody, snow showers in
eastern massachusetts. next week if you are traveling, it is about the cold monday and tuesday but it will be dry in the eastern corridor and dry on wednesday as well. the accuweather seven day, monday, cold, wendy, tuesday, blustery, mid-40s, wednesday mid-40s as well but dry. thursday, thanksgiving, we are watching a chance for a possible storm. we will update that as we get closer. i'm sure that you are asking the question what will this winter bring? the team is breaking down what we are looking at for the season and tonight was a little bit of a seinfeld twist as well. 2016 chevy suburban. this allows us to be live from anywhere in the country. -- this is live real-time data back from inside the storm. i am eric fisher and this is -- what do you think? we have got some leafless trees showing up. the emails are starting to come in. >> i do not think we will get off as easy as last year. >> no. >> not all lining up like the
this winter. i mean, some winters it is clear. you kind of have a good strong gut feeling and this is not one of those winters. >> i feel like last year was clear-cut. we had a strong el ni?o whereas this year it is shifting into a weak el nino which typically means below average snowfall and slightly above average temperatures for doing that although it opens the door to cold air coming out of canada, out of the northern tier of the united states and that links up with moisture, some storms, and maybe a more active pattern? we are not looking at anything shifts back to more the typical winters. >> christmas eve that is not 70 degrees. this year with the weak el nino that we seem to have -- we -- we tend to have a storm track coming down across the northern tier of states, northern across the great lakes. >> more clippers.
i think that the main take away is kind of like a classic new england winter. we have not had that in a while. >> we are not going to have all fluff storms like two years ago. we are going to have a variety of different type of density snows. >> that is important when it comes to the drought. we had average precipitation. >> what is the water content? >> yeah. sloppy snow could be a good thing this year. >> it is the hardest part of the seasonal outlook. the mountains. a boston is more than 55 be. >> i am thinking more from west of boston since it is more of a classic new england winter. closer to 60, 70 inches. >> that sounds about right. >> and interested in the islands. they have got big winters. >> this year we are going to go slightly below everyone else which is typical. >> around 30 or so. >> putting snowflakes up in northern new england. what do you think? >> the northern that storm track potential, possible blowup storms on the coast. you have got to go with more than they had last year. >> closer to a more typical winter and probably not the end
pass we had last year. cheers. >> cheers. >> and a mosh to comedians and cars -- they are little bit funnier on some of those episodes. we argued here but we will take up the take away is that temperatures are going to get up averaging out to close to a normal winter, not as warm as last winter and above average snowfall is what we are going for. >> i think that might take away is that everything about weather sounds better with a good cup of coffee. >> great posts. next in sports, kevin durant at the garden. >> anything but golden for the celtics and their fans. monday on wbz this morning, ready, set, go. >> smoother holiday travel. >> a storm could impact her thanksgiving.
after watching philadelphia be atlantic the week 10, do you think that the eagles will play like they did to start the season or continue to be up and down? i will tell you that they are a playoff worthy team. assuming that carson wentz does not turn the football over and start playing more like prescott in dallas. thank you for tuning into boomer between the games is sponsored by xfinity. xfinity x one will change the
wbz sports is driven by bmw. test drive a wbz today at your massachusetts pnw center or visit us at the website. you keep thinking if i look at the score, it will have changed for the better. >> over the summer we were dreaming about kevin durant playing at the garden. he was there tonight. >> he played and the celtics did not pick a big night at the gardens and the celtics host of the golden state warriors. for golden state, it marks the first time that kevin durant was playing in boston since he said no thanks as a free agent to the big green, and hello to
not the warmest of garden welcomes for kevin durant. it did not seem to bother him. a nice little run a, 23 points, 10 boards -- golden state up 2- 1 -- celtics hung with them for a while. isaiah thomas led with 18 points, boston within 7 at the half. golden state took charge in the third as the celtics klay thompson, 28 points on the evening and how about this? he hit the jumper and then watch what he does, adding his own brand of celebration. they were up 30 early in the fourth. when they cut it to 7 late in the game, steph curry put it out of reach, 64 him, 104-88 at the final and at least one celtic did not appreciate the warriors celebrating during the game. >> i felt it was a little disrespectful. when he was doing what he was doing. you know? i did not think that was too
but they won the game at the end of the day -- of the day. the next time -- punch them in the mouth -- figuratively. >> we understood. the patriots already in san francisco tonight the rob gronkowski and chris hogan are both back home inactive for sunday's game. if there is a week to go without rob gronkowski this could be the one as they take on the 1 and 8 49ers. knocked the wind out of him and it knocked him out of practice all week and sunday's game. the question going forward is how serious this injury might be. reports earlier this week said that he should only miss one week so we will see when he returns to practice. wide receiver chris hogan is also out for sunday's game. he missed last friday's practice for the back problem that is bothering him.
three targets. how about good news for the offense? diablo is did make the trip and could see his first game action come sunday. tom brady is ready to go despite a hit that had him limping sunday night. this is his first game at home against the team that he brooded for growing up there will be a lot of friends and family there. he is still focused on business. >> the reason that we are going out there is to play football games. there is nothing that is more important than that. it is easier to compartmentalize. a lot of preparations and getting ready, settled in for the game. and getting the game plan tightens up. tried to go out on sunday and let her rip. at sunday morning starts with pages game dan 11:30 am, and they go -- metellus bennett's. and the kickoff for 20 5 pm at trial -- at wbz and the post game show is on my tv 38 after the game. college hockey tonight, number 11 harvard over number 3 bc -- 5-2 -- a good night. the only concern after the game is isaiah thomas said that we
that you do after the sports cost anyway. >> yours is celebratory. >> [ laughter ] >> thank you. tonight the cast and crew of cbs blueblood pay tribute to a crew member who recently passed away. he was a big alabama fan and he always sported his fan gear on the set. to the crew -- they all died alabama shirts and they tweeted this photograph in his memory. >> for a good old time. >> the mannequin challenge has been sweeping the nation. >> the competition is truly
pennsylvania has perfected the mannequin challenge. he sits perfectly still while baking, eating, watching tv and even play dead. the video has gone viral. it took 10 minutes to film. >> [ laughter ] but the owners plan to film a new video this weekend. >> my favorite might be the door you know in the mouth. right? how many dogs and hold it real in his mouth? >> he is awe.
