44 in that freezing mark and 9 below freeing. if you wonder about last year it's the opposite. almost all the numbers are exactly the same but just reverse to the cold side. so you know a lot of times we see a season where it gets on the extreme end of the envelope. something as cold as last winter usually there's a react to the other way a lot of snowiest winters have dud seasons that follow a lot of warmest have the coldest right after. and so sometimes weather is seeking a balance. we are seeing that this time. it's 40 degrees in norwood tonight. 38 in worcester all tolled a nice evening with mainly clear skies and we are watching the next storm system developing along the gulf coast. that is severe weather maker over the next couple days to the south but locally we have a tonight mainly clear and temperatures in the teens to low 20s a chilly start to the day tomorrow. and clouds will start to thicken as we head towards midday. just a gray and raw afternoon. and our snow arrives between 4 and 7 tomorrow. notice the snow starting to
drive, temperatures will be borderline but i think it will stick eventually and certainly visibility will be a bit of anissue. as we head towards midnight the snow will change over to freezing rain and freezing drizzle and that's what many of us get into wednesday morning. and i talked about it and this type of set up. the numbers at computer model comes up with are always too warm in this situation. so i think anywhere just outside 128 weeps morning we are at or below -- wednesday morning we at or below freezing and we will linger throughout a large part of the day on wednesday. i don't think we will warm as fast as that model is showing. now in southeastern massachusetts, you will warm up cape island and south shore heading through wednesday. a little bit. tuesday know a -- snow a isolated incidents eye depth cal to the storm last week where we started with a little snow and went over to the freezing rain and we got into the warmup. so i think most of wednesday is spent in the 30s. and away from the immediate coastline. it's going to be a raw day. as we head into wednesday
air moves northward and we switch over to heavy rainfall on wednesday night. so i think the tack away especially for interior location, doesn't watch away. snow or ice until we get to late wednesday night. it will stick around. then heading through thursday a spike in temperatures heavy and i and strong winds on thursday morning also. we are looking at 1 to 2 inches of total rain coming through and there could be street flooding for thursday morning's drive and we will be tracking the winds. again, just like last week. when we get the heaviest rainfall early on thursday morning we will get the strongest southerly gusts and some could top 50 miles p per hour so there could be more scattered outages and going to be a pretty nasty thursday drive all considered no winter precipitation around but the wind and rain that will have an impact. as we move past the storm a. windy chilly friday in the 30s. weekends close to 40 both days. there's going to be a surge of arctic air to the north but it is stuck short and never gets here in song southern new england. >> whoa say keep out. >> yeah. >> you stay -- we say keep out. >> yeah.
