as we go deeper in to the morning hours and certainly by lunchtime, we're going to find more numerous showers here breaking out. that continues all afternoon right toward the evening commute. when you get under one of these, it is a quick burst of snow. similar to what we have in the summer time. you get a shower to pop up. when you get down, a coating to maybe up to an inch of snow is possible. it is not a lot. it is enough to make the roads slippery, especially if it comes down hard enough. we will wind down. tonight we're falling back in to the teens and 20's. the cold. tomorrow only around 30 degrees. it will be a windy day. then saturday the temperatures actually fall. we'll start out close to 20 in the morning. they fall all day long. in fact by sunday morning we're talking about the temperatures below zero in a lot of spots. that's only part of the story. the wind is going to be blowing. on valentine's morning look at

forward. it is going to be a very, very difficult fight if they are best way to describe politics, i suppose. talk about briefly john kasich members. what did this mean for him as he moves forward? >> governor kasich has a very, very good night last night. he's headed south which is certainly been some problems. what to do with that? can he transfer that in south carolina? it is going to be tough. i think we're going to see senator cruz and governor bush and marco rubio still in this all packed together. nothing is going to be easy here. it is all going to be ground game and who can raise the money and put it to work. randy: bush is pushing hard in
any surprises there with the win for kasich? >> cruz is going to be the only really challenger to donald trump. even then he's not going to be able to prevail in many states. the number of consecutive states isn't enough. this is a trump-cruz race going forward. yes, bush has the money to go to south carolina. he got lucky because rubio collapsed. he paid dearly for it. at this point, the bush donors are going to defect. if that had happened, the bottom would have fallen out. he goes on to south carolina. i think this is now pretty much a trump-cruz race. emily: thank you for your insight. get warm and get some coffee. randy: thank you both. the mbta police sergeant is now retiring.
