5:17 am
over the next 24 hours, some of you along the coast that will end up with rain. i don't see that as a huge weather threat. certainly not as much so as the slippery conditions that we will see develop. we have got cloud cover scooting up from the south right now and you can see boston at 27 degrees. still looking mostly clear to the north of the city but with partly cloudy skies. and now we end up turning mostly cloudy by r here by in just the next couple of hours. 7 a.m., 29 degrees. 9 a.m. 35 degrees. and highs up to about 40 degrees in an around 9 degrees in an around the boston area. a couple of cooler spots. 41 to boston and beverly and 42 in plymouth and bedford. 39 in worcester. 41 in nashua 40 in hyannis. you can see it is truly rolling in as we travel into the afternoon. by 5 p.m. though, we have indication that there will be snow out there. the greatest impact during the evening commute will be out across western massachusetts,
5:18 am
a risk say 5:00 this afternoon that will start to see a couple of snowflakes in boston especially when we hit about 7:00 tonight. there will be snow showers around. by 10 p.m. though which is where -- future cast. we are already seeing the snow mix out with rain over the cape and islands and got that rain and islands and got that rain-snow line from the mass pike by 1:00 in the morning and that is the time that we will start to see rain and freezing rain form. so by the time you wake up tomorrow morning, still not going to be snowing and a layer of ice points north and west of boston. and it will be slippery for that reason. a coating and a quick changeover of rain from the cape and islands. a coating to 2 inches on top of it from southeastern massachusetts from the boston area to the north shore. once you hit the merrimack valley, central massachusetts, southern new hampshire, that's where you could see a couple of spots get as much as 3 inches of snow and on top of that the potential for a quarter-inch of ice. now that is the kind of travel condition that has me worried here for the wednesday morning commute.
5:19 am
traveling, you got to budget your time. it is going to be nasty out there. hopefully the roadways are treated any time we have a freezing rain situation, there is certainly danger in that forecast. the threat is going to last us through noontime tomorrow. that is when we should scour out some of those freezing temperatures in favor of an afternoon warm-up that takes us well into the 40s here. by 5 p.m., downpours forming again and pockets of heavy rain into the thursday morning commute. thursday morning not ice and snow but downpours, wind and down across the south coast, splashover and minor coastal flooding on top of that. a very sloppy next couple of days in the works here. thankfully thursday afternoon things start to break apart, quiet down a bit and a couple of lingering showers. look at these rain totals. we are getting anywhere from one and a half to two and a half inches of rain. that is a lot of rain so do expect we will have pretty big puddles out there especially
