5:16 am
and that sunshine will get to work quite nicely and quite quickly today, warming us up through this afternoon. looks like i'm showing you a blk. map. that's the forecast model saying, not much in the way of cloud cover or rain across new england. that's a different story by tomorrow. we start to fill in the clouds. there may be a sprinkle or two outside tomorrow morning. mid-day enter the afternoon, though, better chance of picking up a few showers working on in. not a tremendous amount of rain. most towns picking up one-tenth of an inch or less. so this a little wet weather certainly a possibility on wednesday and then once we get late enter the week, what we're watching is this second front that's going to come on through. this looks dark and moist. so maybe a passing sprinkle in a few towns. but i don't expect much out of it. friday is a breezy day. it's almost more of a cloud producer and wind maker than anything else. then you get on the other side of the front, one quick shot of cold air. 24 hours in new england, and then it's out of here. we start to moderate by the
5:17 am
sunday morning and saturday, not that saturday will be a bad day. it's just that sunday we start to moderate back into the 50s after being stuck in the mid-40s on saturday. and again, a bit of a breeze on friday to usher in that cooler air. we have this milder trend today. then we shut the door on that and push it off to the south as we get into saturday. but it's just a brief shot across the northeast section of the united states. you can see it on saturday. still a . of mild air across a good chunk of this will start to work back on in sunday and monday. so look at the seven-day forecast, you'll see that moderating trend as we get into early next week. 57 to 63. so a few degrees either side of 60 this afternoon. the cooler side of it along the coastline thanks to that sea breeze kicking in, a lot of sunshine and light winds. a very enjoyable afternoon. not as cool tonight. 38 in some of the cooler temperatures. 48 in boston. i think by day break, the clouds start the move on in, a lot of these mid to upper 30s start
