live drive time 228 to the split and 12 minutes on 24 from 106 to 128, 14 minutes on the expressway from the braintree split to columbia road. meteorologist shiri spear joining us now. no 50s on the map today, shiri. >> shiri: no 50s today but go into the 40s which isn't too bad this time of the year, julie. temperatures still above average and problem is we are starting close to freezing this morning so along with passing clouds we have potential for black ice on the roads until about 9:00 this morning. i think most of us are going to be nice and warm -- well warm relative, above 32 by 9:00 a.m. and then we got a light wintery mix coming into town friday night into saturday and that's basically our next system that we are watching. 35 right now in boston, a little bit of breeze, winds only at 10 miles per hour and not too worried about those wind, just keep in mind wind chill now at 27 and winds so much lighter than they were yesterday, gusting this morning up around 20 miles per hour, 9:00 a.m. 36 , 11:00 a.m. 40 ,
7:49 am
afternoon, brightest time of the day is going to be right around lunchtime and early afternoon. and weak, weak disturbance that's coming through this morning and did stir up flurries across western new england, not getting much along with it. there's not a lot of juice behind the front. bringing us clouds this morning, not much else. this front kind of the same story. not going to have a lot of umph when it comes through tonight, 10:00 this morning, want to break down we have partly cloudy skies continuing, does look pretty good throughout the day with sun and scattered clouds as you could see here at 2:00 p.m. with future cast. then during the evening hours we see uptick in the cloud cover, but we are keeping any flurries into central northern new england, even western new england. no snow maps needed with this because you will see the flurries essentially fall apart on their way into southern new hampshire or massachusetts or rhode island, so i will keep it dry tonight. mid-40s we will do this afternoon with 44 in boston and plymouth, 43 in lawrence, 42 up
7:50 am
cool spots include orange, worcester, keene, where temperatures today really are limited to the upper 30s lower 40s down across the cape and islands and no, not the 50s of yesterday, but still above average. temperatures tonight back into the 20s. here is my concern. the fact that we will see some additional melting today and possibility that it freezes up on the roadways, especially the sidewalk and steps here into the overnight hours. so again tomorrow i'm going to remind you about black ice. so temperatures tomorrow, mid-30s, so about 10 cooler than it will be this afternoon, we got 34 in boston, here is 7-day forecast with the weekend always in view because as i mentioned that next weather maker going to come in friday night into saturday. here you can see that we just got a patchy mix on the way. that pink is mix and with the high of 49 anything we get out of it, middle of the day or afternoon would be just couple sprinkles, increasing sunday clouds, high 48 again, and another round of light mix here
