we'll be able to scour some of those out. as the warm front moves through it will will increase the humidity soon, that tomorrow and more so on friday. dewpoints climbing into the low 60s. once the front crosses i think it will be fair game for a spring to pop up tomorrow late and also early on friday. but, again, this little blob of moisture is problematic in the forecast. but it's minor, too it's not like it's gonna create a lot of wet weather and it's certainly rainy day. it passes by and then scoots off, and we wait for this cold front to pass ahead of that we soar on friday, by the way. and yes, it is colder behind this front but no it doesn't england. so the details, tomorrow still 70, or worthy of it in windham, epping and new hampshire and middleton, mass and down through waltham, framingham. 72 degrees. i see a lot of sun and then an increase in clouds and maybe some heavier clouds out through the cape, as we move into the low and mid-60s, too. this is how it ali involves tomorrow.
up close to 70 and backs off as we go into the evening hours. now, the temperature trend, where should we be for this time of year? normal high temperature is 55 degrees. and it's gonna be amazing because it looks like as we go through the weekend our morning lows will be close to the highs for this time of year. normal high temperature boston on friday, about 75. worcester about 71. 73 in boston and 70 in worcester. no cold to speak of. the coldest locked up around the north pole as we look down on the north pole right here. you can see the jetstream kind of holds it, correspondencele a it is and keeps it close to the north pole. you say, well, that's a good place for it. typically this time of year some of that colder air comes down into the lower 48. it's just not happening so we'll stay on the mild side of things,
you know, with any change in the wind direction or a couple of dry days together and a lot of sun, 70 could be within reach once again. >> see you at 5:30. >> see you then, pete. still ahead on 7, cleaning up a sticky situation in seattle. and new at 6:00, the royal losing more than just the game last night, we'll have the latest on chris kelly's outlook
