us. we'll have pressures rising rapidly this afternoon and that's going to mean a lot of wind. how about the temperature, will that rise much? we don't see it rise much. it's going to level off in the middle 40s by late this morning and holding there to about mid afternoon, then after that it starts falling so we'll be down about 38 in boston by 7:00 this evening. these -- these are your current temperatures up in england it's in the 40s. floating with 50 over southeastern mass. there is a storm which is developing right in here and the cold air is whipping around and coming up at us. we don't get our coldest air when it comes this way, we get it when it comes from the northwest and north. so we're looking alt those highs today across the nation. even down in florida, it's going to be chillier. yesterday was 80 or so in
air across the northern states. here is the low center developing right now over northeastern connecticut and moving across the border into south central massachusetts, heading toward northeastern massachusetts with its narrow swath of rain which has been post rotting through rather quickly. we have snow on the backside, it's going to amount to a few inches there in the higher elevations in the berkshires extending to the green mountains of vermont. the highest amount be in northern vermont. scattered coatings are possible into the higher hills of the wooster county area, just a few scattered snow showers or flakes of snow possible around here as this whole thing sort of whips along. most of the action is going to be occurring farther and farther north of boston where snow showers will fall and not much close to the coast. we'll have some breaks of sunshine from time to time. that will last right on through tomorrow. now wind advisory up from the
because of the strong winds which will occasionally spike up to 30 to 45-mile-per-hour out of the west today and tomorrow, and a few scattered snow flurries, times of clouds and sunshine. fewer clouds on tuesday but still windy. much less wind on wednesday but still breezy. the outlook for thanksgiving is a shower maybe a touch of mist sometime in the afternoon. it looks like not too much wind up to 47 for a high on thanksgiving. well a friendly sea critter is getting some tlc ahead of the holidays. coming up, the medical condition that has this sea tur am at the new england aquarium. >> student athletes suspended at an ivy league school. find out what some wrestlers were caught saying. >> it's the birthday of our vice president joe biden he is 74.

warfarin interferes with vitamin k and at least six blood clotting factors. xarelto? is selective targeting one critical factor of your body's natural clotting function. for people with afib currently well managed on warfarin, there is limited information on how xarelto and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking you may bruise more easily, and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. if you take certain medicines. xarelto can cause serious, and in rare cases fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto tell your doctor about any conditions, such as kidney, liver or bleeding problems.
. with the holidays nearing, some folks on the southshore want to make sure troops serving overseas are feeling the love back home. volunteers converged in weymouth yesterday to wrap around 500 care packages destined for all around the globe. el the packages contained treats, warm clothing, and personal letters written by area

massachusetts. this is likely the warmest part of the day happening right now because the temperatures are going to starts falling. it's going to fall off a few degrees and then level off through mid-day, early this afternoon. then let's this afternoon, start to tumble more significantly down in the upper 30s by -- i would say around 6:00 or 7:00 in boston. so here is the upper 30s out here. again, as massachusetts with this snow falling it's 31. here is all the cold air to the west. it's spreading out. we've got some teens and single phubs numbers up in canada. it is g t next several days. we've had lots of warm weather this past week. the high today happening right now. again falling temperatures later today. and much of the nation is cooled off quite a bit. that includes all the way down to the gulf coast, texas, down in florida it's cooled off. it's still pretty nice out there but cooler than it has been. the only place in freedom. high pressure is really in control in much of the country. here in the northeast we've got this developing low which is
eastern massachusetts now. it's continuing to develop but it's moving off very rap lid -- rapidly. it's moving on through. we had brief heavy downpours on spots. we have some precipitation rolling around, sort of circulating around in here. we might have a couple of showers passing along here as the day goes along. but light, brief showers with the snow continuing to fall on this blue shading extending up into the northern portions of new england where they will get a into vermont. scattered coatings possible later tonight. just a few flakes closer to boston in some of the northern and western suburbs as we see that happening. so again, watch most of the action out here as the temperatures go down this afternoon and looks like we're going to have good traveling here for the thanksgiving holiday week across motion of the nation. it does look like we are in for
thanksgiving day, i think clouding over in the morning with maybe a couple of showers or touch of mist in the afternoon. buff the road races and the football games should be in pretty good shape with a light breeze on thanksgiving. so here is the trivia for this hour. it's all about thanksgiving day. and we've had some cold thanksgiving days in boston. and the coldest was in 1901 when the temperature was what? did it get up to 14, 19, 24, or 29? >> "c". >> just take a guess. you guessed pretty well. >> they say you should always go with "c" when you're not sure. >> 24 degrees. >> that was the high temperature for the day. >> wow. >> it will be a lot higher than that this thanksgiving. >> thank goodness. it's going to be a chilly week. thank you, barry. well a beloved jumpist remembered yet in washington, d.c. more on the service for gwen ifill coming on -- coming up on

i'm hall of famer jerry west and my life is basketball. from leaving me at a higher risk of stroke. that'd be devastating. i took warfarin for over 15 years until i learned more about once-daily xarelto... a latest generation blood thinner. then i made the switch. xarelto? significantly lowers the risk of stroke in people with afib not caused by a heart valve problem. it has similar effectiveness to warfarin. warfarin interferes with vitamin k and at least six blood clotting factors.
for people with afib currently well managed on warfarin, there is limited information on how xarelto and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking you may bruise more easily, and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto can cause serious, and in rare cases fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto tell your doctor about any conditions, such as kidney, liver or bleeding problems. to help protect yourself from a stroke, ask there's more to know.elto. xarelto.

good morning. thank you for joining us. somewhat like -- as you know, we pretaped the segment in advance, in this case on friday which happens to be the eve of the first installment of an ongoing discussion of race in the city of boston. initiated by and i guess moderated by our guest of this morning, boston mayor mayor -- marty walsh. welcome. >> thank you. >> it is hard to talk about what is going to happen at an event that has not occurred but by the time this occurred. what you expect to achieve? >> really what we are going to do on saturday -- we are going to begin the conversation about how we are going to frame of the race conversation in the city of boston. it is something that i heard it during the campaign when i was running in 2013, something that we have been building towards in the first couple of years of my administration. we have had conversations around the neighborhood. what we are going to be doing on saturday is going to be talking about how we're going to be going out into the neighborhood that having these
we are looking at -- it came out of the conversation that happened during the campaign of a woman who questioned me on what i thought of races of in the city of boston and the state of racism in boston and i stumbled on the answer. we went back and said we need to raise the dialogue. >> let me start the dialogue a little bit early have you directly addressed the hundreds of black and latino families in boston who came to a decision that their children were receiving inferior education in the public schools that they were attended? ed -- they went out of their way to get on the waiting list to get into a offer a better opportunity. but they are now. -- not going to get that opportunity because you and other opponents are lifting -- you prevailed on election day. why don't you speak to them? >> they are going to get the
>> there are hundreds of people on the waiting list. >> there are thousands. one of the things about the ballot question that was on the ballot last tuesday is that the aggressiveness of at raising up to 12 schools per year into the future -- i felt that there does it was aggressive. there is a way that should be done in the legislature and there needs to be funding but that question last tuesday -- question 2 -- it was not a question against charter schools but it was against a lifting the capital city of boston. i made it perfectly clear that i support charter schools and parochial schools and i support private schools. i support our boston public school system. we should not be putting scol that question -- that ballot question was not saying that we want to get rid of charter schools in the city boston. i think it is contrary. we have some of the best charter schools in our city and i think the people need to understand -- what i'm saying is that we need elected officials and hopefully the legislature will be able to address this issue paws -- properly -- 12 schools is to aggressive and i think it would have heard the charter school movement and the boston public schools. there was not a mechanism for
families are out of luck. >> in the meantime the families have an opportunity to go to our schools. >> but they have already judged that it is in severe -- in fear. >> i would not say it is inferior. >> why are they applied to a charter school? >> they are looking at options. >> why do they want to pursue options? >> you have some families that have kids in parochial school, charter schools and public schools. it is based on some of and the schools for different reasons but i would not say that i would not discredit -- again, this feeds into the argument of -- it is charter school versus public schools but it is all one -- it is really one system and we have to approve all of them. >> we have to take a break, but you have been a staunch supporter of charter schools. >> i am in the a board member. >> they do great work.
the teachers association particularly under the leadership hates charter schools and sees them as an existential threat to the union. if they thought that they could get away with it they would like to wipe out charter schools. what is your message? >> the wrong way to go. when i talk about adults putting schools and could against each other, don't do it i am a strong union supporter and i am a union member but i am also a very proud supporter of charter schools. >> okay. we will take a break and consider -- continue our conversation with boston mayor marty walsh in just a moment. please stay with us. at fallon health we realize that no matter where you are in life
between you and governor charlie baker? >> we are okay. we are back. >> you were on the same site in question for mac appearing the marijuana but you were opponents on question 2. >> we had a disagreement. >> a few weeks ago you were part of the commons unit, anti- privatization rally where you characterize baker as mom -- modest efforts to restore financial order and confidence to some areas that need them as a, quote, fix on th working people. what is that about? >> you cannot do that but i have had conversation. >> you cannot do privatization? >> it is not going to work. by taking an entire bus transit system and putting it on the street because in the long run -- >> that is not what he is proposing. >> you mentioned privatization. >> it is changing the whole scheme of what happens at business.
that has been privatized and the first contract is beneficial to the commonwealth, city, government and the next one is -- it blows out of control but i think there's an agreement to be made. i think that i have had conversations with the governor and i've talked to the head of the community. i think -- i encourage both sides to stay at the table and work through this and come up with compromises that work in the long term even though workers -- they need a fix because they need -- to preserve their jobs so there has to be -- there is middle ground somewhere and i hope and i think that they will get to it. >> you consider what the baker administration has on the table now as far as privatization to be talking about privatization, it is a big word and it has been -- it has been unclear what that means but i think it has been blow to the point where people are fearful of basically taking the system in place today, moving people out and bringing in a new system. i do not think that is on the table.
election there is a lot -- as always, a lot of soul-searching by democrats, seth maltin, for congressman has joined other voices and calling for a shakeup of the house democratic leadership. we just elected a new state party chairman in the massachusetts democratic party. in your view, what is wrong with the democratic party? >> i think what is wrong with the system is -- in washington dc is that the republicans and democrats need to think about bipartisanship and a lot of this backlash was felt on the inability for congress and the senate and washington to get things done but i think th sides is too much and i think the american people are frustrated. i think that people does you talked about the romance -- people like the fact that that we get along and we talk. we might have disagreements --
slap at each other. i think that washington needs to take a chapter. >> reporter: you are telling democrats to look for common ground with the donald trump administration. >> i am talking republicans and democrats but there are a lot of republicans that did not support donald trump so that is interesting. >> it is good to see you. mayor marty walsh, mayor boston. back to my colleagues for more wbz news. thank you so much. barry burbank is here, telling us that we have got to get ready. what are we -- a breaking out the you must? is it th need a tomorrow morning. it is going to feel like 20 degrees when you go outside it will feel like that -- the teens in central massachusetts. things are really changing. >> reality is kicking in. >> in the week that went by, the week that was -- a look at all of those red squares and really nice weather, even yesterday and some of the suburbs, 60, 64 degrees and along the coast it was cooler. that is november and things are going to change. we will have a lot of please squares in the week ahead and the mean temperature will be going down from its present high near 3 degrees above

going to be producing too much so i think 47 degrees will do it on thanksgiving day for a high and it is going to turn cloud in the morning with a chance of a mist were a few sprinkles and after the the rest of the forecast shows the wind over the next few days, simmering down, on wednesday, with the most of sunshine and that we get ready for more showers on friday and saturday. we have no choice. thank you. there is no substitute for the decades weather expertise but for the rest of us, a new tool to help us better understand and predict the weather is on its way to space.
