time of year. now, as we take a look at those current temperatures, though, pulling back quite a bit, once the sun went down, temperatures able to drop. 39 in bedford. 43 in norwood. we have clouds moving inch partly cloudy skies we'll call it overnight tonight, and then tomorrow, it's more sunshine than cloud cover. again, i mentioned those temperatures. getting a boost. we're still into the 50s as we head into tomorrow. overnight tonight, a cool one, but not as cold as this morning. 29 to 39, and there's still that potential for some of the patchy freezing fog, like we with saw very early this morning. mainly in the western part of the state, but do keep that in mind if your travels take you either north or to the west. tomorrow mostly sunny. still mild for us. 54 to 59. but then those temperatures are out and these temperatures are in. and this is much closer to where we should be for the middle of december in the low-to-mid 40s. that happens on tuesday. that's also when we see the clouds increasing, as well, so
6:19 pm
it's out of here. clouds start to creep in from the south as we head into the overnight hours monday into tuesday, and you can see this system, it's trying to pull itself together, but for the most part, it does head out to sea. now i'm giving it ten to a 20% chance of some showers and also some wind as you get out on to the cape and also for the islands, but that looks to be a very slight chance for even those areas. this system looks like it will be mostly to the southeast. we wait until thursday to see any of those drops of rain. no snowflakes in the forecast, even those temperatures will be closer to normal tuesday, wednesday. we're on the up and up as we get into next weekend. jetstream? we're looking at stormy weather near the great lakes, central part of the country, and we're on the warm side of this once again. degrees. very possible as we head into next weekend, and the sunshine is back as well, so quite a temperature swing throughout
