6:18 am
boston at 35 degrees. take a quick look at boston there because most of the cloudy skies, we have a little bit of light fog in the city. 8 a.m. 39 degrees. 10 a.m., 48 degrees. clearly we are still warming up and will get further and further away from the icy concerns. still want to be careful in the boston area. you are just a little too close for freezing for comfort and heavy rain moving back in during the evening commute. like manchester, new hampshire, or i think we are actually take you to to lawrence here, 30 degrees. we are still freezing in this particular location. visibility down to one mile. the kind of fog that we are dealing with, at 8 a.m., we are still only at 35 degrees, and, again, close now have -- to the potential for icy spots still here in lawrence at 8 a.m. that's why the winter weather advisory is going to go until 9:00 this morning there, because at that point, we will see temperatures warm up nicely see temperatures warm up nicely. 9 a.m. we are talking temperatures mostly here in the upper 30s and lower 40s with patchy lighter showers from time to
6:19 am
same deal here at noon. not intense rain, but still going to be damp, still going to be foggy and mild with temperatures getting into the 50s this afternoon. we get another round of heavy rain. this will be on our cold front coming through during the evening commute. so between 5 and 8, you will see this blast on through. temperatures in the 50s. i am not worry i am not worried about ice. what i am worried about is going to be the downpours on the local roadways, also some heavy fog at the same time, and some of those damaging wind gusts coming through along with that. so all things considered, we have -- this morning because of the icy concerns this afternoon because of the wind, the rain and the fog. look how much rain is in the forecast today. anywhere from half an inch of rain over southeastern massachusetts all the way up to an inch and an inch and a half of rain the further north and west of boston you go. there. high temperatures today regardless, even if you are starting out in the 20s this morning. we will all bump you up into the 50s. mild around here later this
