couple single digits out there too. nashua seven degrees, 25 in boston, taunton 12, 21 in chatham, the fresh snow pack overnight and a clear sky allowing for most of the heat to escape from the atmosphere. that's the way temperature -- that's why temperatures are so brutally cold. wind chill temperatures running in the teens and single digits here. feels more like seven degrees in worcester, 16 in boston. and later today, we'll get a little bit of a wind shift coming from the southwest, helping to increase temperatures just a little bit. but also, helping to keep the wind a little bit gusty later today. feeling a little uncomfortable at times, hour by hour forecast, temps in the 30s, 36 degrees by noon and high temperatures will be in the mid to upper 30s across the board. lows tonight, back in the 20s with some teens likely in the suburbs, again some icy spots expected. and our next big question: when are we going to see snow and from what system? it looks like we have two chances in your hour by hour forecast.
