for more of region as we go through the night. nothing like what we're seeing down south it is same storm jr. it is drawn out storm system. part of the storm right now only part of storm that features winter precipitation. even that is kind of splintered and broken up into jigsaw puzzle pieces here. one on one the route two corridor some patchy light snow up near quabbin as well. then you find another patch out near the north shore cape anne. city of boston couple burst lighter snow earlier this evening now shut down. then second wave of presip working up through the south coast. heading for city boston. as that second wave comes into metro boston stone in form of rain drops there left over cold air this will be concern overnight tonight is instead of rain it will be in the form of some freezing rain. that's case even a 5:00 a.m. tomorrow morning. might be a little bit left over cold air for patchy freezing drizzle for most of morning commute will just feature wet
extra time rain can slow morning commute down. we'll have rain on and off through the day tomorrow. cool and raw day. but no threat of wintery precipitation tomorrow. temperatures tomorrow morning in the upper 30s. tomorrow afternoon the numbers jump into the upper 40s. as the warm front gets closer to us warm front kind of excuse the pun snakes down to main event down here. south. this is where they have seen evening. numerous reports of tornadoes. perhaps as many as 19 tornadoes across the gulf coast states. one right here earlier this complex of thunderstorms producing a tornado along i 10. now just a line of severe thunderstorm activity. so that storm system, that moves up into new england overnight tomorrow night. now it's not going to produce tornadoes. because the storm system itself weakens. but i think there's going to be some left over wind energy with this weather system. very late tomorrow night and early thursday morning. the thursday morning commute might be a little bit dicey because we will brief heavy rain.
morning. gusts between 40 and 50 miles per hour. then just like that, it's gone by 10 o'clock thursday morning. sun comes out. it's still mild with temperatures on thursday starting near 60 and will hang out 50s for much of the day. then much cooler air seasonal weather arrives as we work toward friday and the end of the week. so, a bit unsettled for few days we're talking periods of rain through the day tomorrow. a brief shot of heavy rain late tomorrow night and thursday morning most folks pick up an inch, inch and a half of rain. then we get into the sunshine by warm. look at that, temperatures on thursday in upper 50s. warm again this weekend. 40s on saturday. 50s on sunday. >> all right jeremy. so, he might be i don't know you can call him a party animal in his own habitat. close. and passengers arrive home early today. tonight we're getting a fist hand account of what it's like to party with gronk. there's plenty of video to prove
