12:44 pm
week. right now, mostly sunny skies. we have a couple of clouds moving in from the west. high-level clouds pushing into western massachusetts. cloud cover is going to thicken up from the west to the east. as we head into the overnight hours. winds largely calm for most of us. a bit of a sea breeze in boston as well as plymouth. that has mod rated temperatures for us. take a look at some of us. nashua at 60 degrees. 63 in norwood. 62 in worcester. unbelievably comfortable weather for this time of year. our high today, right around the mid-6's for some. boston looking close to around 60 degrees as today's high. we cool down tomorrow with those showers as well. temperatures tomorrow in the mid-50's. we are closer to average for tomorrow's highs. calm winds, it feels great. a look ahead what the to expect. our next frontal system starts
12:45 pm
west to east. we are talking about the chance for scattered showers. i do expect that for tomorrow, for the morning commute, we all could be seeing that. the bulk of that activity should be further in western massachusetts. as we head into the lunch hour, that is when i think we stand a better chance of widespread scattered showers. and again, these aren't going to pack a punch when it comes to moisture. a couple of tenths of an inch at best. showers continue through eastern massachusetts across the cape into the early evening hours. you can see most of this does as we head into the later evening hours. a quick check on rainfall totals with the system. not a whole lot. a lot of us seeing a couple of hundredths of an inch of rain. i do think some of us could see about a quarter of an inch of rain. especially across the cape. but again, scattered showers kind of bringing if...
12:46 pm
dry into the end of the week as well. today, mostly sunny skies. mild conditions. we already have that sea breeze going. that is going to continue through the afternoon. for us, temperatures closer to 60 degrees. upper 50's. you can see further inland, temperatures already in the mid to low 60's. a great day to get outside and vote. no excuse with the weather. winds still very light. and very comfortable. not going to be nearly as cold as what we woke up to this morning. temperatures in the upper 30's. we could see a little patchy fog as well especially in southeastern massachusetts. that shouldn't be widespread. definitely something to watch out for on your morning commute tomorrow. by friday, i think we have the slight chance for some showers for your veteran's day
12:47 pm
