let's get back to meteorologist rob eicher because it will not below freezing tonight is there even more snow in the days to come? >> no, absolutely not no. no snow nothing even close for the next week and probably even longer than that. in case you're curious, joy the first flakes usually flight right around november 4th. the earliest july 10th 1955 but the few fleur questions we have today -- flurries we have today by no means a record. boston logan did not see the flurries so as far as the record books go for official boston concerns this would not count. today did not count. with redone with the flurries and sprinkles for tonight again for the next couple days. except out at the cape where we could see some showers. the big story will be the temperatures late tonight by tomorrow morning. hard freeze just about everywhere. milder weather finally returns by the time we get to the middle part of the week. take you through some of the temperatures here. again if you look at the radar a little bit of rain falling on the outer cape
1:27 am
right now with the cold wind blowing across a relatively warm cape cod bay. that will create some ocean effect showers. water temperatures are rather air temperatures in the low 40s out there so mostly liquid but again not out of the question you can see a flake mixed in did get a twitter report that there were a few flakes out there will not accumulate though. 35 the current temperature. winds at 37 right now in boston. look at worcester already 30 degrees really won't get above freeze until about 9:00 or 10:00 tomorrow morning. talking almost 12 hours solidly below freezing again hard freeze likely by tomorrow morning. there's the radar and again, few showers likely out at the cape for the next couple of hours. i zoom on out big area of high pressure in control of the weather there it is actually way over here centered over the midwest. it's clockwise winds around the high that's generating that northwesterly wind that we had out there today. as the high moves in tonight then eventually out into the atlantic our winds will become calm later tonight then gradually over the next couple days start to shift from the northwest to the
1:28 am
southwest that means the warmup is. on but look for the twoinds really kind of lighten up through the overnight hours. the exception will be out of the cape where again a little bit of a breeze remains that's enough to generate some clouds maybe a few showers. by tomorrow morning it's just plain bitter cold. again the winds will be light so not much of a windchill factor but still awfully chilly. good that it's sunshine tomorrow. unfortunately, the high temperatures really not that much warmer than today. but at least with plenty of sunshine and lighter winds should feel a little bit more comfortable tomorrow afternoon out in the sun than it did out there this afternoon. weak front arrives as we head into tuesday. that may take off a very, very isolated shower. the green areas indicate areas likely to see rain. not a whole lot of that but can't rule out an isolated spotty shower tuesday afternoon. by then again winds will have shifted around and temperature also be very, very mild so no concerns about any winter weather. down to about 31 tonight in boston.
1:29 am
out at the outer cape 36 in ptown and 36 in nantucket those are the really two areas not expected to be below freezing. brockton down to about 24. so low to mid-20s in some spots later on tonight. high temperatures tomorrow upper 40s maybe one or two low 50s really not that much warmer than today. but again with sun line should feel a little more comfortable. then you can feel comfortable to 63 on tuesday. next cold front due to arrive on thursday behind that lightly cooler it does not look like a repeat of this past weekend. the pennsylvania mother at the center of a multistate amber alert will be in boston courtroom in the morning. >> tonight her family is breaking their silence. they tell fox 25 stephanie that mom did nothing wrong and just wanted to save her son. >> reporter: this family of tiffany told me this mother knows loss all too well having suffered two
