coastline and develop into a storm and we have the arctic front from the west. this is what happens between now and the evening the cloud thicken. it's between 9 and 10, 11 that some areas get snow. southeastern massachusetts clip us around midnight. it is overnight tonight and a scattered snow shower for the rest of us. tomorrow morning mid to late morning it sweeps through that the front itself. see the deep blues don't be caught off guard if you see reduced visibility briefly and a quick coating on the roads. even in community including boston metro west. during the morning hours as the front comes by. but the fluffy snow tonight and it will be fluffy is cold and will be oozy to move around. a inch to plymouth and three for the mid and outer cape of nantucket. so plows will be out. overnight tonight we dip into the teens andn boston but single digits in suburbs and we don't get out of the teens tomorrow. but the highs are going to be
day and that blast of cold air comes in. so sunday morning records to beat. record cold temperatures 11 below zero we are forecasting we tie that. 3 below in boston we forecast 4 below and that would break the old record set in 1934. and keep in mind that's without the wind factored in. you bring in the wind that's gusting 25 to 45 miles per hour and number one you may get isolated pockets of damage and number two, it creates the real feel running 15 to 30 below zero late saturday evening and night sunday morning 9 a.m., feeling like 17 below in boston feeling like subteens back down to the cape. so that's why the national weather service has issued the wind chill warning. it comes into effect late tomorrow afternoon. and last until noon on sunday and it's a wind chill watch along the south coast to cape cod. sunday afternoon, we don't improve either. we come up to about 10. and then next week, a quick rebound. cold comes in and out and it's not like it will stick around for a while. next storm is on tuesday.
