from 106 to 128, 17 minutes on the expressway from the braintree split to columbia road meteorologist shiri spear joining us now. shiri, if you think minus eight is bad, you're saying negative 25 for wind chills on sunday morning. this is -- just getting ready today. wind chill warning, we got wind chills potentially 20 to 35 below zero for saturday afternoon into sunday morning. a little less certainty we will make the criteria across the cape and islands in the southcoast, which is why it is still a watch there, expect the warning will be extended into southern new hampshire as well and different offices that issue the warnings. 8 in boston, eight below wind chill. you know what, i have had those same numbers on the map since 4:00 this morning.
7:49 am
, 16 by 11:00 a.m., 21 by 1:00 p.m. and slowly clouds start moving in and eventually end up thickening up, don't like when dress matches the map, real cold out there, 20 in rutland, 21 in worcester today, 21 in gardner and 25 in boston norwood and 24 in plymouth, 25 portsmouth, new hampshire, so cold because those temperatures are normally what we would expect for lows this time of the year, but the lows this morning are much closer to zero. over the weekend we got highs getting up to 17 tomorrow in boston, 12 in worcester, 18 in foxborough, 15 in nashua and we have to drop by self more degrees as we hit the sunday forecast. we have some snow that will pop up late tonight, see just increasing clouds through 5:00 p.m. today, but between seven and ten we got snow starting to fall from plymouth down to the cape and islands and
7:50 am
of that and couple of flurries and unsettled pattern and lots of clouds, possibly some flurries. one to three inches of snow expected for plymouth southward, just patchy coating elsewhere, because as it gets really cold it gets really dry as well, so don't think we will be able to squeeze out snow showers in the afternoon, winds gusting 50 miles per hour for the cape for tomorrow afternoon and on top of the arctic temperatures where we get the wind chills down to 30 below and although we brighten up here during the second half of the day, it is going to be hard to get much of warm-up. real bad stop orange and keene and as low as 35 below, 20 to 30 below most of the area saturday night and sunday morning and 15 to 25 below zero here down across the cape and islands. even though you see those temperatures in the teens and we got the next weather maker with rain and snow, late monday and early wednesday. back to you. >> sara: new at 8:00, picture
