5:14 am
winter storm warnings are in effect for much of the great lakes and now even starting to extend into areas of vermont heading out to the green mountains. so it's not too far from home. doug: they can keep it in the mountains. kelly ann: keep it in the mountains. that really will be the case for much of the snowfall moving in this weekend. the mountains could see a low accumulation, but here in the lower elevations, many of us will be missing out on that accumulating snowfall chance. we're talking about the rain impacts as we move into the weekend ahead, and the next chance of rain is moving in for tonight. itl scattered showers expected at most, especially for late this evening for that travel. tomorrow morning, that's when we see the best risk of showers tracking through the area. that will be moving through rather quickly, though. so as we head into the late morning to afternoon, those shower chances start to decrease. then we're talking about the chance of a few flurries heading into sunday night and into early monday morning. temperatures right now are mainly in the 40's. as you can see, especially heading out to the coast and the cape, 45 degrees in boston.
5:15 am
at this point. so definitely feeling nice and mild for heading out early this morning. a bit colder as we move inland where we see temperatures down into the 20's even. springfield at 27 degrees. so big range going from inland to the coast. that is going to be the case this afternoon as well as we see some clouds moving in for coastal locations. that will keep a lot of us in the lower to mid 50's. boston expecting a high of 51 degrees this afternoon. marshfield at 52. 50's to near 60 as we move out toward pittsfield. inland locations where the clouds will be slower to move in, that sun will help to keep us just a bit warmer for this afternoon. here's what's in store for today. we have beautiful sunny skies to start for early this afternoon. but notice by the midmorning we see coastal clouds making their way westward onto some of our far coastal locations. downtown boston, don't be surprised if you see clouds
5:16 am
and afternoon. no signs of rainfall just yet. so we're staying dry for much of today. even with those dinner plans for tonight. it's by late this evening we start to see some spot shower chances making their way onto the coastline and also approaching from the west. and this is a system to the west that will be bringing the best chance of rain as we head into tomorrow morning, skirting right on through the area. notice how we see heavier showers with travel and that chance of snow as we move westward into areas of new york and much of vermont and those higher elevations. even the berkshires seeing the chance of snow for early sunday morning as well. we see things drying out sunday afternoon. they won't last long as we see very cold and windy conditions moving in for your sunday afternoon. the chance of a few snowflakes cannot be ruled out as we see snowfall chances moving into
5:17 am
missing out. as we move westward and the higher mountains, we will see low accumulations of snowfall, 2 inches toward the berkshires. seven-day forecast, we will be seeing temperatures staying on the lower end of the scale. doug and rhondella, the next area of concern is monday with strong and gusty winds expected. rhondella: okay. thank you, kelly ann. well, the time is now 5:17. checking some of our other top stories happening right now. doug: the man who fired at police during a standoff in norton is behind bars. heatmu inside his john scott boulevard home early yesterday. a woman and a young child managed to escape from that house during the standoff. he held police at bay and did open fire, hitting the police car there. this is what the window of that home looked like. you can see it's full of bullet holes. police found guns, ammunition and knives inside that home. >> i see you are here just a few

5:19 am
as the golden state warriors. but durant and company have too much firepower. and the celtics were without al horford and jae crowder once again. there's a look at durant doing a little bit of everything. the running, one-handed floater give the warriors the lead. a couple of nice passes. durant with 23 points, 10 boards, and seven assists. celtic fans getting a good look at what might have been. and it was excruciating. just to highlight of the night for the celtics, terry rozier finds avery bradley with the half-court alley-oop. celtics trailed by 7 at the break. still a game, but they got blown out in the third quarter. warriors on an 18-0 run. this is durant for the finish. the warriors outscore the celtics 31-9 in the third. and that's all she wrote. coming up, zaza pachulia hits a "j" and then dances a little. that's not cool. the celtics fought hard till the end like they do. but in the end, they fall 104-88. harvard football looks to make 10 straight wins over yale in

>> this is an editorial by wcvb channel 5's president and general manager bill fine. >> the traditional benchmark for evaluating a new president is after their first 100 days in office. with donald trump, we've already learned old rules don't apply. the clock is running right now on his new administration. his choices will draw extra scrutiny with no past track record to weigh. will president-elect trump surround himself with more reince priebus, former rnc chance, or more political operatives like steve bannon, his new chief strategist? it's unclear. the transition team is in transition. we should know soon. what is clear, trump is reaffirming some of his campaign promises and already softening others. reflecting consistency with his campaign pledges, he'll put pro-life judges on the supreme court. the second amendment seems safe

but the wall, he says, now might actually be a fence in sections and imprak instead of doparting all illegal immigrants, and target the criminal element. he may not try to throw hillary clinton in jail. will he drain the swamp or simply restock it? depends on your definition and point of view. and instead of throwing out all of obamacare, he's opened the door to reform rather than repealnd both his supporters and detractors are not quite sure what president trump will do. rethinking or moderating a large must be of his campaign promises -- number of his campaign promises, however, would be a

5:46 am
then it's that sunday nighttime period where we could see a few snowflakes even into the overnight and into monday morning as well. right now, things are dry and clear. really not a cloud in sight. that will change this afternoon. we will see clouds especially moving onto the coastline which will play a huge part with our temperature forecast for today. right now, our temperatures looking nice and mild. we're at 45 degrees in downtown boston. plymouth at 50. te 54 degrees. that's playing a part with those coastal temperatures this morning. you move inland. that's where we see a few 20's on the board. pitts field, 28 degrees. kite a bit cooler inland, the opposite this afternoon because clouds that move onto the coast will keep our temperatures in the 50's. as you move inland where that sun will be a bit stronger, that's where temperatures could inch towards 60 degrees this afternoon. so colder for the coast.
5:47 am
hour, clouds are building in and temperatures will fall into the 40's. right now we do have a storm system which is off the coast, really not a huge impact for us, but it's that wraparound air that's bringing some of those clouds right onto the coastline for today. that will continue to be a concern through the evening, but then we're watching that cold front with that rainfall, which pushes right through as we head into the overnight hours tonight and into your sunday morning. as that pushes through, we see that chance of snow initially just hanging out in the vermont and even upstate new york. but by later sunday afternoon with that cold air in place, some of that snow will try to inch its way even toward the worcester hills. we're talking about a light coating at most as we move from the saturday night, sunday timeframe. inland, that's where heavier snowfall accumulations are expected. most of us missing out on this, including downtown boston, where at most we'll see a snowflake or two. seven-day forecast, well,
5:48 am
