4:47 pm
now 13 miles per hour. readings are in the 30's. still just cold enough. especially above us to support snow if we were to get some precipitation during the first half of tonight. even though the winds are coming from the south. eventually we'll warm up tomorrow. but before that warmup, one narrow little strip of snow could just make it to the ground a little bit later on so something like this around 10:00 and a couple other bands north of the pike could follow. but eventually it's going to become mild by tomorrow morning or milder and then with breaks of sun tomorrow, i'd like to say the sky is the limit. but certainly in the 50's i think is a good bet for many of us unless there is an area where just is socked in with clouds. how much snow could we get in the little burst tonight? a coating to an inch is possible. in some areas, might not stick to roads and the temperatures will actually be rising some toward tomorrow morning. if we do reach these low temperatures, it would be
4:48 pm
quick little burst of snow. as i mentioned the temperatures will start to inch up, you know, hey, good thing. worth seeing twice, right? like detroit 61, cincinnati 65. it's really mild out there. st. louis is 73 degrees right now. chicago is 54. so it's that tongue of warmth that comes in here for us tomorrow is a projected high temperature but i think we can add a few in most cases. sunday. let's break down the seven-day forecast a little bit. there's tomorrow. about 55 degrees. that's what i'm forecasting for boston. breaks of sun. now on sunday, although the day will be mild, a little disturbance, you might catch the northern edge of it overnight sunday night. it could mean rain changing to wet snow or a little mix changing to snow. maybe even a small accumulation by early monday before it quits but i'm not sure if we'll get enough precipitation or if it will come down hard enough or get cold enough quick enough but it is something to keep in mind for a sunday night mix
4:49 pm
of bigger significance is what happens down the road. we turn colder on monday and then anywhere from tuesday night to thursday we're going to have to be on our toes for what is probably going to be a big mix of a lot of different types of precipitation. which would likely start as snow. right now i'd say sometime overnight perhaps tuesday night and then go to either icy mix or rain depending on location. sometime on wednesday. there may be a second part of this that continues things going in one form or another into thursday. we may have a long, drawn out situation. we'll certainly be staying on top of that. meantime, the weekend, you got to love that. >> absolutely. okay. we're focusing on your health now. the new zika virus concern tonight. >> the c.d.c. confirmed two cases in the united states linking the virus to a paralysis disorder. the condition known as g.b.s. causes the immune system to attack the body's nerves. the paralysis is temporary. in some cases the disorder can interfere with breathing. researchers have already
