5:17 am
where it's 30. and a lot of clouds here with mid 30's in southeastern massachusetts. you can see the wind is coming out of the north and the northeast. i point that out because that flow of air over the ocean is creating some cloud cover. you can see how those clouds are kind of working on in backing in from the coast. not out of the question that there could be one or two flurries that develop here. we've got high pressure to our north. that flow is coming around it. notice on future cast as we go through the morning hours here, clouds are most prevalent here right along the coastline. there might be one or two snow showers or flurries that develop here. they're not going to amount to anything but don't be shocked if you see a few flurries flying in the air right through midday into the early afternoon that threat is is with us. some of those clouds may back up well. not expecting a whole lot of sunshine today. a fair amount of clouds. maybe a break or two of sunshine. we'll call it partial sunshine. it's chilly with those flurries possible at the coast. look at these highs. upper 30's through worcester county. closer to 40 degrees right along the coastline. below average today. chilly tonight.
5:18 am
we're down most flee the 20's to around the freezing mark. and tomorrow we do actually sneak back up into the mid 40's so not as chilly tomorrow but that warmth comes in with this system right here that is going to bring in some rain. notice that rain is with us right on into wednesday as well. so we've got wet weather to get i don't think it's a big impact commute. notice how that rain is pushing in on the lighter side through the afternoon hours. the heaviest downpours may come in tuesday night. on wednesday we'll see the rain in the morning diminish and then a break andate a band of showers may come in in the afternoon. maybe half an inch to an inch of rain through wednesday. we'll clear it out on thursday. breezy. cooler by friday. notice next weekend there, see what that is on sunday. randy: bam. cindy: 50 degrees once againment it's like after a brief cooldown, a little milder. kevin: this morning chilly out there. a couple extra minutes. warm that car up. monday back to work, back to school. you can see those cars coming up the expressway here.

5:22 am
