5:18 pm
look at hartford, jumped to 57. berkshires, pittfield, 55 degrees. we may have a record before midnight. the record for today is 59. predicting 58 but it's possible we could get to 59 or 60. worcester's record is 57. predicting about a 54 as we climb but they could break a record, too. the wind gusts are picking up 30. in worcester. look at providence, gusting to 36 miles per hour. so raincoats more than umbrellas will probably help you. see the temperature rise as we get to about 10:00. even rising into the wee hours of the morning. then that front kind of gets close and then the temperatures ample down but very, very slowly. very warm start to your day tomorrow. temperatures will be pretty steady in eastern mass during the day, in the 50s. it will be another very mild day before chilly air moves in. the chilly air that moves in overnight tomorrow night and friday morning, is going to coincide with a second storm that will bring moisture, especially in southeastern mass
