>> reporter: unsettled weekend ahead of you, what we're seeing what we get at least through the next 24 hours, if not the next 48 hours. travel conditions though not bad. especially as temperatures warm across southern new england. we're talking more wet than white as far as the weather goes.
6:17 pm
a catch. could be beneficial rainfall as we wrap up the month of november and kick off december. so here is a look at new england. really throughout this hour we're seeing that snow staying in the ski resorts and the berkshires picking up a little bit of snow. this is light snowland light rain working through the area. a lot of moisture is available and we'll see patchy fog forming into this evening and overnight hours. if you take a look at northern worcester county, are seeing flakes and sleet pellets mixing in with the rainfall, but if you take a look at the temperature, 38 fitchburg we're above freezing. so as far as any icy spots to form overnight, i think your best chance will be well northwest of 495 in the higher terrain of worcester county and into southern new england. jaffrey sitting at 34. overnight tonight not really expecting those temperatures to drop to freezing.
6:18 pm
fog will be with you, mid 40s to low 30s and the clouds stick with us tomorrow as well. so it's a damp and dreary day ahead of you, if you are headed out black friday deals you'll need the hood or perhaps umbrella but temperatures getting closer to average for this time of year. mid who's to even low 50s that could be in store for you, as temperatures warm and we work through the timeline you will notice that the snowfall and rain/snow line is going to retreat far into central and northern new england and we're just left with the little green blobs. that would indicate late rain showers and some drizzle that stick around on again and off again throughout the day tomorrow. possibly again on saturday as well. but this is not a lot of moisture that is in the atmosphere that we can take advantage of so it's not a lot of rain on the way. .1 of an inch to a quarter of an inch wide spread is what we can counseled on. maybe better news for the
6:19 pm
especially the farther north you get. a possibility of 3-5 inches. travel across country tongs i think things mostly quiet for us with the exception of the pacific northwest. here is a look at the 7 on 7 forecast. i mention the temperatures getting a before the but it comes along with wet weather and it could be beneficial rainfall on the way for us. we'll cross our fingers for that. stay tuned. >> 7 sports with joe amorosino. >> reporter: football and thanksgiving go hand in hand. even for the patriots who are pressing pause on their preparations for the jets. to enjoy some found family and hopefully heal up in sometime for sunday's kickoff at the meadowlands. whatever happened in foxboro today tom brady was not part of it. he missed a second straight practice with a knee injury. bennett also not practicing. he has an ankle injury. still too early to panic
