large grass fire when it started swirling like a tornado. do you see how the rotation there, with the flames going upward? it can be a frightening scene but thankfully no one was hurt. firefighters say a lawn mower by the way started that fire. often called fire-nados when you get that vortex of flames. meteorologist: first of all, fire in and of itself is terrifying. then you see mini tornadoes. gusty winds around there. of course the no storms going on, so it's not that type of a situation. nonetheless, certainly catches your attention and obviously fire's serious in the first place. very serious. you remember late last saturday night, but early last saturday morning, it was nine below in boston. this sunday, i'm forecasting a high of 52. just a little bit of a difference from one weekend to the next. classic new england. but before we get to the warm stuff, we may have to put up with just a little bit of snow. radar's been kind of filling in over western massachusetts. now what's happen something the air is very dry at ground level.
5:46 pm
way down to the ground and saturate the atmosphere. it's probably going to take a little longer to do it. then it's going to start moving eastward and the possibly we'll get a little band of snow to move through here later on tonight. that's how it could be projected. around 10:00. a few more bands. but those additional bands after midnight would be rain showers in boston. because we'll be warming after midnight as the wind picks up. but in the higher terrain, north and west, they could get a couple of brief rounds of snow. maybe an inch or more in the highest elevations of worcester county. look at this, some sunshine for saturday afternoon. that's when we can enjoy the milder temperatures. as for tonight, a coating to an inch of snow is possible. in a quick hour or two burst of snow later on. that if it is does accumulate, it would certainly melt off easily tomorrow. because that's when, instead of this chilly 30's being with us, we're going to jump into the 50's. it's even warmer than that right now in detroit. and cincinnati, it's much warmer than that in st. louis.
5:47 pm
almost summer-like, 72 degrees, so we've got a couple of mild days coming up. where boston should top 50 both days. then temperatures go back to normal early next week and then we start a stormy period with a lot of different types of precipitation probably around the middle of next week. right now in boston, as we check the skies, thicker clouds to the west, 34 degrees. breeze off the water, 10 miles per hour. it's in the 30's but with the air being so dry, there's room for the temperature to drop a little bit, when that snow does come down. then very late tonight and tomorrow, the temperature of course is going to respond upward. so to give you an idea of what really we're talking about here, as we talk about the next bunch of days, tomorrow, milder. getting into the low oose. i'd up this to estimate a 55-degree high in boston. won't that be nice with some sunshine as well? sunday's mild during the day. there will be a small little storm passing south of us sunday night. it might be too far south to give us anything. but if it does clip us, the northern edge of precipitation
5:48 pm
somewhat colder. so rain or a mix could turn over to a period of snow, maybe a small accumulation along the southern new england coast. it's just a possibility. but it may also track too far south to even do that. or it may not get cold enough quick enough. but it will be turning somewhat colder for both monday and tuesday. so we'll keep an eye on a chance of sunday night mix. colder temperatures coming up on monday with highs only in the 30's, so being colder it means the setup as we get into our next storm, if we have a lead storm kind of as early as tuesday night, early wednesday, we would be cold enough most likely to begin as snow, but then we probably wouldn't stay cold enough to be show. it probably would go to rain on the coast and maybe a mix inland. if we get a second strong storm or one that goes west of us, then we'll actually warm up a lot and that would be a milder rain storm. if that happens. so either way, looks like a long duration, starting with some snow, sleet and rain. but right now the odds of it
5:49 pm
storm seem pretty small as it does look like certainly a significant part of the time warmer air's going to come in at higher levels. we'll have to see how much comes in at lower levels especially along the coast. j.c.: thank you. check it out. mcdonald's testing out its own version of a southern classic, chicken and waffles. the sand witch is called chicken mcgriddle. right now by the way, not served here. just in ohio. mcgriddle could go national, depending on customer reviews. phil: actress angelina jolie is back in the spotlight tonight for what she's saying about motherhood. the actress revealing she never thought of herself as a mom until a 2001 trip to cambodia changed her mind. we explain how it changed her life. reporter: angelina jolie's rough and tumble performance in a 2001 movie not only put her on hollywood's hit list,
