fall. by early tomorrow morning, 40's and lower 50's. with any developing sun, which we will certainly see, we could hit near 60 in a couple spots before cooler and dryer air builds on in. you will notice back to the west, scattered snow showers, a lot of this will work off to our north and west, so once the heavy rain exits we have to wait until early sunday to get in on a little precipitation that will fall in the form of snow in the mountains and maybe a rain or snow shower farther south. look at the timeline, rain, mostly light through again 9:00 or 10:00, then it begins to pick up. heavy downpours at times, can't rule out an isolated rumble of thunder in extreme southern parts of new hampshire, then it's a quick mover by tomorrow morning, 7:00 or 8:00 a.m. it's gone, clearing skies develop, a little breeze out of the northwest and that will start to drive in cooler air. but before that happens we make a run well into the 50's, possibly near 60 in a few spots. things are looking up in terms of those temperatures through

back to reality beginning later tomorrow night. showers early, then heavier rain late tonight, areas of fog, low 40's far forth, near 50 south. it's a mild friday after rain ends early. again, 7:00, 8:00, so you'll want to have the umbrella for the morning commute. after that looking dry until early sunday. snow showers in the mountains, maybe a rain or snow shower south. a nice but cool stretch for monday through thanksgiving which includes of course a big travel day on wednesday. so hope it holds here. jean: you're a big basketball fan, check out what audiences laugh last night at the game between the raptors and jazz. josh: third quarter, this flair threw up a shot and the ball got stuck behind the back board, so he grabbed the broom, started poking it and when it came loose, swish. it went in.
