6:38 pm
that is what the pink color indicates here. that could also be sleet, freezing rain, a possibility. that mixes out, though, and changes to all rain as those temperatures get a boost by midday wednesday. and then again, as we make it into thursday, we keep that wet weather around. wind-driven rain is in store for us. now, i mentioned tomorrow, back to normal for us. there is your brief boost in temperatures with our wind-driven rain day on thursday. but those cold temperatures are back for us as we get into next weekend. we will have to brace for that roller-coaster temperature ride, it continues. . >> pablo sandoval rolling into red sox spring training today. the sox' beefy third baseman says he did not weigh himself at all this off season. he is not concerned about his weight. he says he just wants to be better at his position. along with sandoval's weight, the red sox are keeping a close eye on hanley ramirez and his transition to first base. fns after showing up to camp
