that we will see. >> i am wondering because there was so much rain beforehand if it's going to take a while for the flakes to stick danielle. >> you make a good point which is you saw the road and flakes were coming down and it's more wet than white and that's the case for the next couple hours until the snow starts to come down harder then the conditions on the roads are going to deteriorate as we head between now and let's say mid-morning in the heart of the morning rush hour. doppler radar shows rain and snow. we are tracking the rain snow line and temperatures ares 37 in boston. 32 in worcester. there is some colder air in our -- and our temperatures will continue to drop by a few more degrees between now and mid- morning for most of us. light snow falling in worcester. same back up to fitchburg. blue represents snow green the rain. however, when you get into eastern massachusetts there have been some wet snowflakes mixing in. more like flurries light consistency in southern new hampshire. but where you get the deeper
and 128 the rain and wet snowflakes but it's not accumulating on the road yesterdaye yet. 39 in plymouth and areas of rain all the way back down to the cape and islands. we are thankful for the weather watchers every day but especially on storm days. pamela gardner is standing by and we have had several reports from people up this morning pamela. >> yes we have. some reports in there are extremely he helpful because weil we can go ground tooth on what you are experiencing. 35 according to brian in shirley and so far no this time. that's key information but once we get the colder air to move in than we will see more of the transition and that snow will continue to pile up. south here. john in hanover has 37 degrees with rain. .14 inch of rain since midnight. and that rain will change over to some snow for you too john. we will keep you posted on the weather watcher reports and that change over.
on the timing. >> that changeover you talked about happens from west to east later this morning. let's go through the timeline hour by hour. between now and 6 and 7 the temperatures drop so the rain snow line moves south and east as colder air works in and precipitation comes down harder. mid to late morning that occurs down near the cape cod canal. it takes longest for outer cape probably not until late morning or midday. and notice that, temperatures right around freezing at that point. so conditions on the roads will deteriorate. anything that's untreated will be slick and the snow will taper off gradually from west to east. we have slowed down the timing ever so slightly through early afternoon and we will linger longest with left over light snow on outer cape until early evening. clearing comes in after that and problems overnight tonight is icy on anything untreated because we dropped back into the teens and 20s. so no change in terms of our thinking of snowfall accumulations when you get to
chatham to nantucket. 2 to 4 near the canal and a ramp up a sloppy 4to 8 inches of wet heavy snow. there may be outages that result and the northern worcester hills through southern new hampshire the amounts taper off after that. tonight, teens and 20s. and so anything untreated will be slick and then the weekend no change. looks beautiful. near 40 tomorrow with sun and clouds and 42 on sunday. and a nice winter day and the next storm to watch is for the beginning of next week. we may get grazed on monday and tuesday a chance of snow will still be in the 30s through the middle part of the week guys back to you. >> thanks very much for the update this morning. super bowl 50 is almost here and it appears tom brady will be at the big game in his hometown. >> steve burton has details from super bowl city in san francisco. >> good morning. big news in san francisco the big patriots news is tom brady will attend super bowl 50nfl confirmed that.
