10:19 pm
to our 50-degree days or higher this winter. most on record in boston. we have now picked up 34. last year we only had nine. typically it's about 12. worcester now coming in around 27 as well. it's still mild out there out there. we have some temperatures into the 30s in the interior 40s though across the coast. and we've got that wind that's active out of the southwest ahead of a cold front that's going to be pushing eastward and it's really got itself together pushing through the great lakes and ohio valley. but it will lose some of its steam as it pushes through our area by tomorrow. noneless this is what you need to know. those winds out of the southwest are going to keep us mild through the overnight hours. so despite seeing mostly clear conditions you're waking up to temperatures what we should typically see for highs this time of year. upper 30s to low 40s. so not a bad start in the city of boston. we'll see some sunshine as well. but those clouds will increase through the mid-morning with the risk of some scattered showers
10:20 pm
i'm thinking anywhere from 10:00 to 3:00 p.m. we could see a shower or two. then we'll see clouds break apart. but take a look at those temperatures once again well above average as we close out february. highs in the 50s across the area. winds will turn out of the west with that front coming through. could be gusty at times. gusts as high as 30 miles per hour are upon possible. by noticing through the interior here is that front and the green indicating some of the scattered showers that will begin to fall apart as this front pushes eastward. but again they're going to be hit or miss you may want to have that umbrella just in case. now to the north and west of that front notice by 4:00 we're already breaking back into the sunshine through the interior. we're going to end the day with mostly clear skies. so not too bad with the temperatures in the 50s tomorrow. it will get a little bit cooler as we head to the polls on tuesday but it will be dry out there. by wednesday we're tracking yet our next system.
10:21 pm
precipitation moves in it may be just cold enough for the interior we could see some icy conditions early wednesday for the morning commute. but it's going to change over to rain it and will be a rain event in boston as this front comes through it will be windy and wet during the afternoon and evening hours of wednesday. but notice there may be some cooler air on the back side of this system that may allow for some mixing to some snow. some of the latest models are indicating that moisture might be just off the coast before we see that changeover. something we'll be watching. that seven day forecast does feature the warmth wednesday. but once that system comes on through we drop back into the 30s. we'll hold onto the clouds friday into saturday as the system will be passing to our south. we'll have to watch it closely if it does get even closer it could bring us the over to you. a major security summit is set to take place tomorrow here in massachusetts. >> next at 10:00 the one thing you may use every day that this congress mane
