6:48 am
those locations into tomorrow morning. snow and ice into the morning commute tomorrow. that is some of the biggest concern right now because that means that we are going to have dangerous roadways and travel conditions. heavy rain on wednesday night into thursday, and strong winds as well on thursday morning. so we have got two systems. kind of a one-two punch. one that comes no tonight as pretty chilly out there. the snow changing over to rain and freezing rain and this is the one that will bring us heavy wednesday night and thursday morning rain, but the calm and quiet before the storm. 28 degrees. we have increasing crowds in and around the boston area. you will see a couple of thin spots in the cloud cover, but here. turning mostly cloudy today. 36 degrees at 10 a.m., by noontime, 35 degrees. we should peak closer to 40 in boston. 39, 40 degrees there for your high. 41 in beverly down into shirley. worcester, 39 degrees. 44 framingham down nor wood.
6:49 am
40 from marshfield down to plymouth. 41 in sandwich. 43 in bridgewater. everybody gets those clouds and mostly dry weather today. really not until later tonight that we have the first of the snow moving in. i can see some of that snow pushing in between 5, 6, 7:00 this evening, which means it is going to be moving during the evening commute, especially areas south of the mass pike. you may be able to get home before the snow office in. by dinnertime snow overhead. by 10:00 tonight, already changing over to some rain over the cape and islands and going to be a slower process the further north you go. so we got that rain-snow line up to about the mass pike by 1 a.m. it continues to track north ward, after we get minor snow accumulation, we got rain and freezing rain on top of it. inland is where you have that best chance of getting some ice best chance of getting some icy conditions. so although we have that quick slip to rain over of the cape and islands, from the south shore into southeastern mass, the boston area and north
