, partly to mostly cloudy and give sun and scattered clouds here at 2:00 p.m. if having early dinner at 56 and 6:00 this evening, of course, dark out there and temperatures falling back into the upper 40s with just a few clouds, great thing is even though we got clouds don't have any rain, don't have any snow in your local forecast or across the northeast so if you're driving see family today, the only thing that you would have a little bit of cloud cover and even that's going to be broken up by sunshine. but with warmer weather streaming in we have also got some more moisture which is cover. you can see win directions coming up from the south which is a warmer direction for us here a little bit breezy across the cape and islands with winds sustained 15 miles per hour to the vineyard and nantucket but like i said, not a big one, not going to worry me too much at noon time future cast mix of sun and scattered clouds, rewind, repeat, say that exact same thing through the afternoon and into the evening we go with the
quiet weather continuing but with a little bit of cloud cover it is going to help us out and keep temperatures above average and mild for those overnight hours. hey, just want to break it down for you if you are traveling in and around boston, 54 in the city today, 55 in quincy, 54 in brooke like and watertown, and not too much variation in temps today, some of the warmer readings will come out of southeastern massachusetts with norwood and new bedford at 56, 54 in plymouth, middle 50s across the cape, up to lawrence at 54, framingham 54, same in fitchburg, manchester, new hampshire 50 this afternoon with the mix of sun and clouds. overnight tonight it is going to be back into the 40s, these are going to be wake-up temperatures tomorrow morning and for those of you going out shopping before the sun even comes up, these are the temperatures that you're going to be dealing with. 40s which is nice. not freezing, not teens and 20s that we had earlier this week and during the afternoon i have a feeling out in norwood 63
short sleeves shirts here tomorrow afternoon and it is just lower 60s and lawrence and fitchburg and cooler in worcester tomorrow at 56 but even boston getting real close to 60 , not record breaking heat but it is well above average and so here is game plan for tomorrow. at 5:00 a.m. about 45 with a couple clouds noon time 59 and looking fairly bright and at 3:00 p.m. 62i expect clouds will be increasing and you can see the clouds will be drifting from north to south here but mostly really rolling in and bringing us potential of rain after midnight friday night and into saturday morning. saturday morning really the wet timeframe with scattered showers now and some of my latest information actually has those showers pulling out a little bit slower which means saturday afternoon is at risk for being wet especially area south. that is trend that we will continue to watch very closely and sarah wroblewski is going to have an update on that starting at 5:00 p.m. tonight and see saturday up to 50, 47 on sunday
