9:14 am
out there. we'll keep the sunshine today. a lot of sunshine. that helps us out and really that will ring true over the next few days. temperature close to thirlt degrees. windchill factor 15 to 20. for more on what goes on the next couple of day with the windchills over to danielle. danielle? >> we'll stay. low 30s for the wind. the temperature will slightly below average for this time. the wind not as bad today. it is still breezy and lit stay that way for much of the day. this afternoon we are still dealing with the westerly wind gust anywhere from 20 to 30 miles per hour at times. they are starting to die down overnight especially out toward western mass then as we head into the overnight hours for tomorrow it's still breezy but the winds turn a little bit northwesterly and the wind are right around 20 miles per hour for tomorrow. what does that do to your windchill. this afternoon it feels like the teens and as we head into tight it's staying in the low teens. by tomorrow morning back to the single digits. the air is certainly cold enough

9:16 am
north does it travel. there's a huge sharp cut off in terms of precipitation from north to south on the northern edge where you have little snow to higher totals if you drive down about 50 or 75 miles. there's a modest risk of heavy snow especially across southeastern mass. if you go from the north shore of boston, worcester points south and east that's the best chance to see at least heavier snow through southeastern mass. of course this tight gratiant if the track changes by 50 tore 75 miles either way that would have big implications on the forecast. even if we don't get a ton of snow. the high tides to watch. 11:00 p.m. saturday. 11:00 sunday morning. because the northeast to north wind will continue to increase. there could be pocket of minor moderate coastal flooding and beach erosion. the north and east facing coastline of the south shore in island. it's something to keep an eye on

9:40 am
22 degrees in boston that wind driving down the windchill factor of five. winds coming in out of the west northwest about 20 to 30 miles per hour. we're in the upper teens out into worcester at this time. it looks like the cold will
9:41 am
22 in post. 23 in norwood. 22 plymouth. expect the wind gusting now 25 to 30 miles per hour to continue to gust 25 to 30 through the afternoon. that's driving the wind chill values down. down to one in worcester feeling like 11 degrees in the north. at least we have a lot of sunshine in store. that's true here over the next few day. quiet weather wednesday, thursday into friday. we do battle the breeze this afternoon. windchill at time. there's more on that over to danielle. the good news it's not as windy as it has been the past couple of day. still breezy as we head into the next two days. temperature low 30s. just a few degrees below where they should be for this time of year. let's talk about the wind as we head into this afternoon. they are staying with us. notice between 20 to 30 miles per hour. westerly wind not as bad as yesterday. as we head into tonight you can see the wind dying down toward western mass. they are staying with into tomorrow as well. still in the 20-mile-an-hour
9:42 am
your windchills not as bad as the last couple of day. out there today. for. and as we head into tomorrow morning we're back into those single digits. we get a late start as far as the snow goes by this time last winter we had over 5 inch of snow in boston. this year not the case just over 4 inch but we're keeping a close eye on the possibility of changing. for more on that back to you. we're adding the snow total here depends on how much, though depending on the track of the storm. this snow that's sliding to the south and east through the ohio valley. this is energy we're watching now crossing into the rockies dyeing into the southeast. there's not a lack of cold air to the north. you need cold high pressure to north to get a big snowstorm for the mid atlantic into the northeast. the question is how far north does the storm track. it's a powerful ocean storm major coastal flooding jersey through the virginia coastline and heavy snow through the mid atlantic.
9:43 am
heaviest will stay just to the south. in terms of the adjusting and looking at the risk potential for a lot of heavy snow the highest from southern pennsylvania down through the mid atlantic down through appalachians there all the way down to north carolina. for us there's still some risk of some heavy snow especially south of the mass pike. there's a big gradient in terms of snowfall different totals here from hardly anything to the north and then you can drive 50 to 75 miles and pick up on snow totals. where does that gradiant set up. further north. if it's further south then you put higher totals offshore. i think it's more likely we see some heavier snow near the mass pike down through southeastern mass at least enough to have to get the plows back out on the road. certainly would be the case through southeastern mass looking at current set up. if it's just further south and north that would be the game changer. high tides to watch. 11:00 p.m. saturday and 11:00 sunday morning. especially that sunday morning
9:44 am
to north wind may have pocket of moderate flooding. the storm would have to adjust further to north to get coastal flooding than that. looks like major coastal flooding. keep an eye on the storm as we go into the weekend. guys? >> sunday afc championship will see two long-time rivals go head to head. this will also be the latest edition in a sibling rivalry for family in colorado. the weeblers named their first son brady after that pats won bowl. then they named payton. brady roads for the pats. >> we definitely already have four underneath belt. how many does he have? >> two. oh, yeah that's right.
