snow in the month of november. look at the climatology for the month of november. on average we do get just over an inch of snow. on the first day of the month our average is in the mid 50's. by the end of the month on average we are down in the mid 40's but anything but average this week. look at the forecast high temperatures today across the country. you see those 70's from chicago back to kansas city. that is some of the warmth that will be working in our direction. so we've got a warm week ahead. near record highs here by the end of the week. all the while our mainly dry weather pattern does continue. now there is some rain on the eastern seaboard down from norfolk back to raleigh. direction. it's having little success in doing so. we are seeing high, thin clouds especially from the pike on south ward. high pressure building in from the north will keep this rain away today. we are looking at dry weather today and actually a fair a.m. of sunshine. we've got a little bit more cloudiness from the pike on south ward. notice we are running in the lower 50's. boston 54.
and west where the skies are clearer, it is a little bit colder for you. down to 35 in orange. we're running in the mid 40's back toward keene. so some thin cloudiness around this morning. by 8:00 a.m. most spots running in the lower 50's. by your lunch hour today, we'll call it mostly sunny as again just thin cloudiness around. should be right around 60 degrees with a west-northwesterly wind today at 10 miles an hour. the sunsets at 4:37 you're going to be heading home probably in the dark with temperatures in the mid 50's. lauren to boston to marshfield, 61 hyannis and near 60 up through the hilly terrain in worcester county. you can see some of that high, thin cloudiness around. kind of here and there throughout the day. the trend will be for us to clear it on out tonight. we will drop back a little bit colder by tomorrow morning. these are your low temperatures tonight. lots of 30's north and west of town. mid 40's boston. mid 40's down on the cape as well. high pressure begins to shift eastward tomorrow. what that will do is allow a subtle shift in the wind to the southwest.
that will start to open up the door to let some of that warmer air move on in. so we're talking about high temperatures in the lower 60's today. by tomorrow, high temperatures coming up into the mid 60's and keep in mind that average high temperature for us this time of year is only about 57 so we're looking at readings a good 5-10 degrees above the average coming up tomorrow with mostly sunny skies. a little bit of a sea breeze taking hold on wednesday so mid 60's once again over the interior but near 60 at the coast. we head towards thursday and friday and these will be our warmest days this week. we're going to be up near record highs. the record high for worcester is in the lower 70's. i think we'll get close to 70 and the record high for boston is in the upper 70's. i think we're looking at lower 70's. we might not beat the records but still lower 70's on thursday. near record highs again on friday but on friday more clouds around. maybe a spot shower in the morning and then the trend for temperatures is down here especially by the end of the weekend looking for highs by sunday only around 50 which is really not too far from average
but after being in the lower 70's thursday and friday it's going to feel chilly. olessa: unbelievable. i think we're all very happy. cindy: pretty good looking search-day out of the gate for the month of november. olessa: thank you, cindy. so far a quiet start on the roads this morning. a live look at the pike here. eastbound moves away by allston/brighton. construction is what you will bump into. that is about it. let's check the rest of the ride. there's that roadwork 93 southbound approaching the zakim bridge. also on the expressway as you head towards storrow drive and then once again over by freeport street. there's also construction on the ramps by furnace brook and the same story 95 northbound by 128. some roadwork in place by newton corner. both sides of the pike. if you're traveling north of town, 128 southbound construction from route 3 down to route 2. we're expecting the trains and the buses to start the morning on schedule. randy: thank you. commitment 2016. republicans are calling for changes in the debate format. representatives for some of the g.o.p. candidates, including donald trump and ben carson,
