commute as well. we'll begin with jeremy reiner. >> reporter: i think it's messy at best. so the that sums up tomorrow morning's commute. it is a tricky forecast because temperatures are in the 50s, the storm makes its own cold air and drags cold air into the storm and timing that out with the amount of precipitation falling is the headache. we have a winter storm warning in effect for tomorrow morning, city of boston down to the south coast and the cape. winter weather advisory, temperatures running in the low 50s. the city at 53. hard to believe we have a winter storm warning with you will a the leftover warm air from yesterday. here is the storm blossoming down through carolina and this scoot up the front offshore but close enough to us that we're talking about know on the way. because it's so warm right now, when the storm first gets into new england around midnight it'll take on the form of rain at midnight as well as the first parts of the overnight then flip over to a wet snow because 4:00

5:32 pm
about 2, 3, 4 inches of snow possible by the time it winds down and the outer cape about 2 inches of snow. this is actually supposed to be your forecast. what did i do here? >> reporter: can i go over the 7 on 7 with you. from spring into winter for us and for the weekend we've more sunshine and also some melting in store for us. we'll get -- can you keep me on track? perhaps, winter storm warning typically between 6 inches and above and the advisory between 3 to 6 inches of break, to break it down. the rain back in late tonight from the southeast then the rain changing to snow after midnight tonight. steadiest snow for us in the boston area as well will be from 5:00 am to noon. again very messy fried morning commute. we've had a little bit of snow this for but the timing of this storm system is really what is problematic here arriving just in time for the drive into work tomorrow. things improve in the afternoon with a little bit

5:49 pm
if you have travel plans even up until about midnight no travel issues on the roadways. they'll be rain but nothing more and later on as the storm system is travelling up along this front, it starts to drag in some slightly colder air from northern new england and the storm is going to make his own snow. so the rain does change over to snow between 3:00 and 5:00 a.m.tomorrow. temperatures this evening in the 40s then overnight to the middle 30s tomorrow, snow during the morning hours, that will taper off early to mid afternoon probably in the city of boston 2, 3:00, but poor travel tomorrow morning with temperatures 31-35. this is how much snow is on the way. a large area. basically around 495 what snow. you go up to southern new hampshire are new hampshire and 2-5. raymond to amesbury and at
5:50 pm
of snow. city of worcester itself about 5-7 inches of snow. just south of the mass pike norwood, down to wrentham and foxboro, about 7 inches of snow. then you come down to deeper into southeast mass, this is where we had yesterday more snow because we thought the storm track would be farther away but the storm track is closer to you folks there is leftover warm air. so it will be a real fight between the warm air and the colds air charging south during the storm. how fast it changes over but plan on i would say 4, 5 inches of snow likely close to the water's edge new bedford. westport, mattapoisett about 5 inches of snow then on the cape near the canal about 2, 4 inches of snow then out to brewster and chatham about two inches, it's a tricky forecast down here because a couple of degrees makes a world of difference with how much snow you get. it will be a heavy wet snow, tough to show and plow and
5:51 pm
when the tire is going over the roadway, it's squeezing moisture out and it creates a film of water compared to arctic snow where you can drive over it and it's, you are going -- even when you walk on it you hear the snow breaking down the snowflakes but there is no moisture so it's even more slick to drive on west versus dry snow. into the afternoon hours, there is slow improvement. there is much improvement we're going to melt snow for you. but also a great weekend to take the kids skiing. and cross country skiing and sledding. mostly sunny skies on saturday. no bitterly cold air, sunday middle 40s and there is the threat of another snow event late next month night and tuesday. >> jadiann: next a marathon mom han orred in -- honored how this superstar runner is making history. >> kim: i'm kim khazei.
