5:14 am
it was 60 degrees officially in boston. 53 yesterday. we had extremes this month both up and down. the month as a whole we are running about a degree above average. temperatures starting out on the mild side this morning. from boston where it's 36 all the way down to the cape where it's closer to 40 degrees. but north and west of the city, look at beverly at 32. worcester at 32 and there are some 20's here across northern worcester county. and notice how the side skies are beginning to clear out around the worcester area now. we're going to hover in the upper 20's until 8:00 this morning. we'll start to climb again but only close to that 40-degree mark as we head into the afternoon. we have a couple things happening. first of all, the winds have shifted around to the north. as you look to the north, you see how much colder it is across quebec. that's the air mass that is trying to drain on down. as we watch one storm system head out to sea and high pressure nose on in. we're clearing out today with sunshine. this storm came close enough to kind of just brush south eastern most massachusetts with a little bit of light rain through the
5:15 am
you can see how the clouds are beginning to break apart. to trend continues here through the morning hours and i expect bright sunshine through the afternoon as temperatures come back up to around the 40-degree mark boston out to worcester. may sneak into the lower 40's from nashua down to taunton this afternoon. average high this time of year is 40. certainly more seasonal today. the night skies mainly clear. we'll fall back into the teens and the 20's. it's colder out the door tomorrow morning but still pretty quiet. the midweek period though things change in a big way. we're watching not one but two systems that are going to work in our direction so the weather really starts to go downhill after tomorrow morning's sunshine. let me step you through it. we're in the mid 30's for highs on tuesday. morning sunshine and then clouds come at us from the south and in off the ocean. during the evening hours, we're going to watch a little bit of snow work up from the south. initially this starts out as snow with an easterly wind. it changes to rain pretty quickly so it the wednesday morning commute will be a little bit messy with rain near the coast but some lingering
5:16 am
north and west especially outside of 495. that is that first system coming on in. the second one is the one that is going to have a lot more moisture with it. this is a storm that is going to track to our west and pull up a lot of warm air. so wednesday night into thursday, we're talking about another slug of potentially very heavy rain with embedded downpours. can't even rule out some thunder. that could lead to poor drainage flooding and strong southerly wind gusts as well are going to push those temperatures on thursday up into the mid 50's. both the wednesday morning commute and the thursday morning commute are going to feature some welt weather. by friday though we're clearing things out. look at the temperatures trending back down a bit into the 30's by next weekend. so a little bit more up and down the way it's gone once again this week. olessa: what else can we expect? a quiet start on the roads this morning. a live look outside. here is the expressway. that's by the gas tank northbound side moves to the top of the screen. let's get to the maps and check the rest of your ride. so far not seeing any volume. no real issues and all that overnight construction we had
