5:17 am
mostly cloudy skies. and you will see a lot of clouds around today. i expect that the clouds will be a bit thinner during the morning hours. 45 at 7 a.m. in boston. 47 at 9:00 this morning. we worked up to temperatures in the upper 50s this afternoon. and we have got a slight risk of a shower out there. i am seeing somewhere like new bedford with a better chance of getting in on some of those showers later on today. it really is later closer to the evening commute with the showers that pop up. a couple of spots that stay cooler like keene at 30 degrees. parts of new hampshire only getting into the upper 40s later this afternoon, so there will be some cooler spots. bull i think overall even our cooler spots are a good 15 degrees above average. so temperatures are going to feel like april today. noontime comes along, partly sunny skies expected. the clouds thickest north and west of boston to get those thicker clouds developing in the boston area by early afternoon. 5 p.m. with a best chance a shower far south of the mass pike.
5:18 am

5:19 am
