breaking and boston was 3 below on the 16th. two below on valentine's morning. seven below in worcester and that should match what it was during february last year on the 24th. that's the last time. close to records. maybe breaking it in places. we have to watch some additional snow squalls that could come in tomorrow. another disturbance at high levels. wind picks up tomorrow and it will be a colderer day day than what we've experienced right now. >> temperatures, mainly in the 20's with a good deal of wind to deal with tomorrow, as we check out the next seven days. harsh, cold air coming in. we also have to watch overnight, first thing saturday, maybe a dusting of an inch or two. the rest of cues see a few squalls saturday morning as the bitter cold gets ushered in. tuesday next week, mild enough for snow or rain. big change is coming. i'll see you again at 7:00.
