. welcome back to everybody. it is 6:15.
6:15 am
it will be on wbz live at 8:00. but i was asking barry, give us the dirt on the weather for everybody headed out there. >> i think it should be no problem. it will be overcast, probably holding in the 40s. so not going to be all that cold. it shouldn't be raining. it might be just a touch of mist at some point in the evening. but for the most part it will be after the -- the. >> lighting. >> when it's all over. it is one of my favorite groups there. >> it's going to be a great you don't want to be freezing. >> i don't think you'll be freezing. there won't be too much wind tonight either, kerry so it will be good for tonight. let's go to the wbz weather bug network and go to the -- >> let's go to the "c"'s. >> let's go to cambridge. it's 40 degrees this morning. let's go not too far away to chelsea the mary brook elementary school, it's 43 this morning. the vocational technical high
6:16 am
are down in the 30s because we find mainly clear sky across the region. even some 20s out here in the connecticut river valley. but we've got all 30s here enter southern maine into new hampshire and down into massachusetts as you can see. it's still clearly in beverly. it's still clear in boston. it's still clear at norwood airport where it's 29 there. it's 33 in taunton with just a few scattered clouds. then you go over to plymouth where it's mostly overcast at the airport there. it's overcast in new bedford. 50 degrees on cape cod. so this cloud bank, it's a deck of lower clouds, it's going to start pressing westward slowly today. but we'll see a lot of sunshine. the farther west you live, the longer the sunshine is going to be lasting. high temperatures across the nation, that chunk of chill out of canada will only make it 32 for a high in minneapolis today. the cold air has been charging southeast where they had such
6:17 am
weeks and weeks of warm weather. they're finally getting the cold shot here. but the cold air hasn't made it down to florida yet. it will be 80 in orlando today. here's the cold front on its way with the milder air ahead of it. a narrow sliver of showers which we will experience first thing tomorrow morning. it won't last long. it will come down mostly light but a few pockets within that line of light rain. we'll have moderate showers and then it's done. but behind it we'll have the -- a lot of wind and a lot showers in the mountains of western northern new england where it will accumulate. here is this bank of cloudness that is slowly pressing westward. it will be in a line of just east providence, almost up to boston. so mainly close to the i-95 corridor by 11:00 to noontime. and then slowly that will try to press westward but won't make progress until late afternoon. it's just here that it's going to be cloudy all day and right
6:18 am
then we might have some specks of mist coming in from the ocean and may be a sprinkle or so this evening. but that will be it. it should be nothing more than that. note during the night, this bank of showers comes northeastward so in the early morning hours that bank of showers will come through boston. the snow showers in the mountains and we'll stay 9040s for the most part during tomorrow and then we're looking at the snow which may accumulate up to several inches, two to four inches possibly and then higher elevation in the ten inches in far north vermont and new hampshire. as far as going for halloween travel, it's looking pretty good to me across much of the eastern part of the nation. for us, for thanksgiving, some more sunshine a late day shower is possible. it should be a pretty good day overall with a temperature around 47 degrees for thanksgiving day. then there will be some showers on friday. so this week is going to be much colder than last week was. it's going to be a lot of wind starting tomorrow morning.
6:19 am

activity was out here, did you feel in danger? >> i was very nervous. i had no clue what was going on. it's the first time i've been here when something has hammed. >> reporter: the caller said he was barricaded in room 420, but it's just open stacks on the fourth floor, that number often used as slang for marijuana. as police try to scare the call, b.u. students were taking the hoax lightly. >> it puts a will the of stress for students, especially with it being a hoax m police say the number was. >> reporter: plus say the number was blocked. it was unnerving for police and the campus and now the job of trying to trace it. west high in manchester was evacuated on friday when a chemical smell made people sick. 1,000 people filled the football field there. the fumes came from a chemical used on the gym floor. 30 people were treated. one student and a faculty member

closer and closer. so let's see what's going to be happening on thanksgiving day. it looks to me like it's going to be starting out with some sunshine, at least partial sunshine in the morning, getting cloudier late in the day. but right now, it appears it's going to be on the dry side, especially here in the boston area, west and north. so we'll have the thanksgiving day forecast coming up for you and that leads us to the trivia for this hour. it goes like this, the probability of having a white thanksgiving in boston, that means one inch or ground, is what? what's the probability of that? 4%, 12%, 20% or 28% chance probability that we would have one inch of snow on the ground? i'll have the answer in my

6:49 am
washington. it is 40 degrees up there indicative of the warm air that exist as loft so it's 46 and it's hardly any wind blowing at all. it's like three miles per hour. the visibility of 120 miles, what a nice start to the day. great day to be mountain biking and hiking. it's 58 in the buffalo, 55 in pittsburgh. but that's being squeezed as we get the cold air rushing in from the west. the temperatures out here, look at this, 18 in winnipeg right now. hi everybody up there in baker lake. 70 degrees in morning. just not too far away from zero up there. so the folks are getting ready for winter for sure. we're looking at the highs across the nation today being close to 40 in chicago. only 32 for a high in minneapolis. the cold air has punched southward as well. after weeks of beautiful weather here, all this fall, they finally got the cold snap moving south into dixie. 80 in orlando today.

7:45 am
spectacular. you can see the temperatures as we go through the evening hours. it looks like it will be just fine and all around boston and fall slowly into the upper 40s. it will be essentially cloudy. how about november so far? well this has been one warm week for sure, especially with yesterday's low middle 60s, we have red squares all across the board there. that's for sure. so the average -- the mean temperature for the month is just short of three degrees. so that's pretty impressive. we're going to have a cold week coming up just had. we have lower 50s. but farther inland it might be a couple of spots that may touch 60 degrees. here is all the cold air sweeping across the nation. orlando today will be 80. it will be 82 out in phoenix. so this front is on its way. it's been producing all that heavy snow, especially minnesota, now some snow maybe a few snow showers near chicago.
7:46 am
this swath will only be around for a short period of time. what's coming in today is this cloud bank which is all overcast. the cape, the cloud bank now up through about hanover not quite to randolph yet. but it certainly is all overcast in taunton, moving off to the north west as such and will continue moving in that general direction. so we're looking at the cloud cover to just slowly press into the western suburbs and then most of the region is going to be on the sunny side today with the showers coming in later to so we have a brief burst of showers. out there it's going to be a brief burst of snow in the berkshires and green mountains. this will lift up quickly tomorrow morning. it's not going to last long. we'll see bursts of sunshine but also a lot of clouds rotating on through. the snow showers will be rather pronounced as we go into the mountains. so we'll see a few inches out there, especially northern -- in northern new hampshire, for
7:47 am
snow showers possibly on monday. on thanksgiving day it should be a nice day. my forecast showing that it's going to be about 47 for a high. we'll start out with some sunshine. it turns cloudier as the day goes along. but overall, thanksgiving is looking good. traveling weather next week should be good here in eastern -- in massachusetts and much of new england and, in fact, not too bad over much of the country. except some stormy weather out west. but a lot of wind and cold the next few days. >> oh, boy, barry. all right. still m we'll be right back.
