this is the temperature compared to 24 hours ago. 10 to 15 degrees colder than it was last night at this time. it's down in the 20's in our areas north and west of boston as you can clearly see. right around the freezing mark down on cape cod. notice the temperatures are down in the teens when you get to lebanon, laconia, new hampshire, burlington, vermont, and just above the border low quebec. just enough of that cold air is getting in so that when our next storm begins it will at least be cold enough for snow. by the time that storm is completely done with us we'll be incredibly mild, windy, and wet. another massive turn-around. but these are the temperatures to start the day off tomorrow. then we'll move to 35 to 40 in. pretty impressive area of rain trying to slide up the coast. it is the first batch of precipitation, another storm out close to denver and that's going to be part of the storm that when it gets us we'll be on the warm side of that and will give us the heavy rain. let's time this out for you. storm number one. there you see it. storm number two right over

valley, in the worcester area out toward the berkshires with freezing rain. notice some of the heavier rain into worcester county late on wednesday and later wednesday night into thursday morning strong lines of downpours, maybe even thunder with strong or damaging winds likely. the first part of the storm, the snowy part, almost nothing toward the cape. i say i-95 north and west, 1 to 3 inches of snow for tomorrow evening before the mix takes over. the reason for the winter weather advisory is because of the the freezing rain on top of the snow over inland locations. when we get to the heavy rain part of the storm overnight wednesday night into thursday morning, very high chance of a heavy rain, high chance of some strong, damaging winds. low chance of coastal flooding and even a chance there could be a thunderstorm involved. in terms of how much rain this could produce, check it out. we're talking a good 1 to 2 inches of rain. we get 1 to 3 inches of snow i-95 north and west and the
heavy rain and warmer temperatures. thursday starts very, very warm. in the 50's and windy and colder. it is the start of the weekend, probably a milder finish later in the weekend. a chilly, calm start tomorrow morning and a bit of a snowy finish for tomorrow evening. cindy will have the latest on the eye opener. >> some star burst customers are a little steamed tonight. >> the changes to the starbucks p the new caramel macchiato from dunkin' donuts. r let hand-crafted layers of espresso, milk, p and a caramel-flavored swirl uplift your mood. indulge in a hot or iced macchiato today.
