l.a., where it was 66. mild, mild weather here. we get one more day, sort of. not quite as brilliant as today but a little bit cooler. remember, we're only supposed to be about 40 degrees. today we are 20 degrees above where we're supposed to be. tomorrow, we'll probably only be about 10, 12 degrees. 49 degrees, all courtesy of that southwesterly wind. it's been pushing that warm air all day today. the sun came out and what a spectacular day we had. still into the upper 40's. a few places holding on to the 50's at this hour. tomorrow, partly cloudy, very mild. 34 to 40 tonight. tomorrow, we start with sunshine. we get a few afternoon clouds. and late tomorrow night, it looks like we could see a little bit of light mix. i think primarily this is going to be down toward the cape. but the threat will be out there. highs tomorrow, about 48 to 56. so let me break it down, what's going to happen. 4:00 tomorrow afternoon, you see the temperatures, upper 40's,
a lot more cloud cover. 8:00, 9:00 at night, you start to see showers developing. but notice where most of the action is, along the south coastal areas, closer to the cape. the temperatures at this point are just too warm to support anything but rain showers. there may be a mix before it finally winds down. colder air coming at about 3:00 in the morning. but by this time, most of the morning is out of -- most of the moisture is out of here. so let me break it down for you and show you what's going to happen. tomorrow, enjoy it. 52. we've got that little bit of mix or mostly rain as we head towards sunday night into monday. monday's tuesday, tuesday's high, only into the thursday. wednesday, this system by the way, is lowing down a lot. i don't think anything is going to happen until wednesday night. first part comes in with a little bit of wintry mix. but i think it's going to be quickly changing over to rain as you look at the coast and perhaps just along the coastal
inland we could see a little bit of ice going on. this fades away late wednesday night. this one, when it comes in, it is dragging some incredibly warm, moist air with it. that's why the high temperatures, as you look at thursday, are going to be well into the 50's. but you're not going to enjoy it much, because it is going to be a wind-driven rain out there. we could see over an inch of rain after the whole thing. cooler air starts coming in, the end of next week. into the weekend, we'll see highs back where they're supposed to be this time of year. watch out for the ponding on the roads on thursday. in terms of mix, it may happen a little bit wednesday night before it changes over to rain. out in the berkshires, might be a little bit of ice hanging on. tomorrow is looking like a beautiful day, with temperatures in the 50's. >> thousands attending funeral services for the late justice antonin scalia.
>> supreme court justice antonin scalia, remembered today as a man who loved god, country and family. the mass capped two days of morning. scalia's son, paul, led the service, for the conservative father of nine, who died unexpectedly last weekend. among those in attendance, vice president joe biden and all eight sitting justices of the supreme court. >> literary legend harper lee laid to rest in alabama. she was the author of "to kill a mockingbird." the service was attended by a few dozen family members. >> all right. it's all about -- >> the bruins tonight. >> are they getting stronger? >> yes, i think they are. they played a very good, balanced game in dallas, at the end of a road trip. we're going to show
>> now, sportscenter 5 with bob halloran. >> final game of a six-game road trip against the third-best team in the nhl. a win in dallas would tell you something about the bruins' legs and their heart. claude julien said this would be a huge win, and it was. gotta tell you, i didn't like this call. not saying the refs got it wrong. just i didn't like it. rask makes the save. the refs said the puck was going in before the post, so it's a goal. that made it 3-1, dallas. second goal of the night for marchand. a 30-goal scorer.
it's kevin miller. his fourth of the year. and the game was tied 3-3. here's another goal that got reviewed. also in the second period. erikson kicks the puck in the crease. but then he swats it through the pads. that's also correctly called a goal. erikson's 21st. david makes it 5-3. bruins hold on to win, 7-3. they finished the road trip, 4-2. a bigot little bit of pittsburgh. kris letang, he takes the stick away from him own. he gets the stick. for unsportsmanlike conduct. a little bit of hockey history. jaromir jagr tying brett hull for third place on the all-time goals list with number 741. it did not take him long to get number 742. old. his mullet, only 36 years old.
to luke skywalker, david price is to eduardo rodriguez. may the force be with both of them. price and e-rod going through virtually every spring training drill together. meanwhile, the guys who closes out their games is getting comfortable. >> the opportunity, like i said, to get to know my teammates. >> all right. kimbrel is coming off one of his worst years in the bigs. his 2.58 e.r.a. was a career high and nearly a run more than his career average. his 39 saves were a career low, since he became a closer in 2011. but he was still among the leaders in saves and strikeouts per nine innings. during barry bonds's career, he hit more home runs than any man, alive and dead. he said even god knows he belongs in the hall of fame. unfortunately for bond, sports reporters are not god, and they're the ones who vote.
league baseball,here's not one player or coach that would -- that ever said i'm not one. until you guys decide to make that final decision, then that final decision will be made on your terms. but in my heart and soul, and god knows, i'm a hall of famer. >> good luck to you. third round of the northern trust open, dustin johnson sends this one high up into the trees and knocks that one stiff. he's a shot back at 11 under. rory mcilroy played himself into contention. he finished his day with a putt, just long enough for par. he's two back. and your leader, bubba watson. missed the green. left on 18. but he shows his softer side. bubba watson leading at 12 under par. the bruins with a big win tonight. their back home to play at the garden, finally, for the first time in about two weeks on monday. that's sports. >> thank you, bob. all right. final look at the weather. >> 52 tomorrow.
