so i think we'll be close to friday. all thanks to the jet stream which still has the bubble of warmth here building through the east this week. this pattern will change over the weekend. the jet stream is going to briefly dip to the south so it gets colder this weekend and then start to build the warmth back a it looks like through the first part of next week. a temporary cooldown coming this weekend. 39 in bedford and 40 in nashua. you head out the door and need the jacket. you can shed is later. lots of 50's on the cape but notice there are pockets of that colder air norwood to tauten. skies are clear. there might an patch or two of develop that. otherwise it's clear now with a big area of high pressure on top of us this morning and will dominate our weather today. off the to the west the warm is surging and the wind shift to the southwest and you see the bubble of warmth.
the lower 60's in st. louis and that's what's going to start to surge back at us later this week. so in the meantime, we'll have those light winds throughout the day. notice they don't get higher than 10 miles an hour and will develop a sea breeze to develop along the coastline. boston with a busy southwesterly wind got to 73 and we'll hold to 60 and reach that high likely before lunchtime and temperatures hold steady with a wind off the water through the afternoon. cape ann to cape cod, 65 in nashua and we have a south to southeasterly wind that will bring in lower cloudiness in the overnight hours and could be fog overnight with temperatures falling in the 40's to near 50 degrees tonight so not as chilly overnight and tomorrow. here comes that warmth again but notice throughout the day tomorrow, more clouds around and as we head into friday morning there could be a spot shower and kind of the tradeoff
the a the end of the week. bright sunshine today and more clouds tomorrow but mild again tomorrow. let's take a closer look at friday because we wake up friday morning to a lot of clouds and can't rule out a spot shower. the thought process is once we get beyond late morning to midday, the skies may brighten a bit depending on how much sunshine we get and when i think we'll get close to the record high temperature and late in the afternoon the cold front approaches with a gusty southwesterly wind and that front could produce a spot shower friday evening but behind the winds turn to the southwest and cooler over the weekend, 60 on saturday and upper 40's to near 50 on sunday, a cold start to next week but look at that, around 60 by next tuesday. a brief cooldown for the weekend. emily: thank you, cindy. so far it's a quiet start on the roads with the exception of one crash.
