6:16 pm
front. 20s and 30s in the great lake states. most of this cold air does not swing right into new england. it will pass to the north of us grazing northern new england and southern canada. that's why the numbers set back a little bit tomorrow and thursday air. overnight tonight relatively mild. i think for overnight low it's will be close to a normal high of 36. tomorrow morning mild and in through the day a sunshine. bit of a westerly breeze in the afternoon so that might add a bit of a cool feel to the air. boston tomorrow afternoon 44. lakeville at 45. north of town, merrimac valley, lower 40s can back into the worcester hills, a mix of clouds and sunshine. worcester at 41 and out on to the cape and the islands melting more snow tomorrow. edgartown 44. province town at 45. sunny skies. a nice winter day on
6:17 pm
out there, pleasant. temps on thursday close to tomorrow in the lower 40s. on friday we have another cool front that drops out of canada. once again this is not an arctic front. last night i thought this front might be able to reach out over the ocean and grab this ocean storm and pull it closer to new england. i don't think that's going to happen. i think we can say good-bye to that low pressure system out to sea and for us the cool front on friday will generate clouds. there will be a couple of flurries and maybe an isolated snow shower but nothing significant. saturday mostly cloudy skies, upper 30s. great day for skiing. even sunday up in ski country the numbers will be near 40 but closer to post upper 40s sunday and back into the low 50s early next week. have a great evening. just one game to go before the bruins hit l all-star break and that six day layoff comes

6:19 pm
when you have guys playing good around you, that helps. >>reporter: bruins won 5 of 6 break. a game that carries a little extra meaning for matt beleskey. >> i'm sure it's going to be fun playing against some of those guys. >> he's not afraid to go to the net. he's gritty. he gets his nose dirty. that's been a good blend for a hockey club ropt for the first time this year beleskey gets the chance to show his skill team. >> i think they know i'm going to hit them. that's part of it. it's going to be a fun game. >> 7 sports. celtics keeping pace with the bruins. the smallest guy on the floor could be the biggest reason why. isaiah thomas make his case for a trip to this

6:21 pm
i mean the execution, balance and the running game. i mean it's all part of it. i wouldn't put it on any one guy or any one situation, one position. just in the end we came up short. >> and with matthew slater backing out of the pro bowl, none of the seven patriots selected to this year's nfl all-star showcase will actually make the trip to hawaii. that's sports. >> all right. thank you, joe. 7 news at 6:00 will
