kris anderson, you have to make the run later. i'll look at the radar for you and tell you when we're if between showers. you can make the run across government center. good morning. look at this, a wall of snow back through the berkshires out through the litchfield hills into connect connect. this is where -- connect -- connecticut. this is where the bulk of the snow is. certainly a lot of cold air in place. in terms of rainfall totals don't expect much.we early this morning. a couple of spot showers out there close to framingham, natick that is going to lift north of the mass pike. a brief light shower in boston coming on through. then you work into worcester county and you know the colors are changing here on the radar as cold are air works in. some of the rain showers will start to mix in with some wet snow flakes out through the worcester hills over the next couple of hours here. this area of low pressure is quite potent and behind it we have a very strong gusty
it's also pushing in colder air. new york city is down to 39 degrees. we're 48 in boston. temperatures not so bad this morning. but that will change through the day and i think that 48 is more like 42 or 44 as we get to the afternoon. combine that with a strong breeze. temperatures going on the colder side. it'll feel much colder. closer to home, 38 worcester so you are beginning to see the change in worcester county. that is why i expect especially across the higher terrain t flakes mixed in. there the wind is out of the east-southeast but it turns back to the southwest down into plymouth, back to the west in worcester. then ironically it's out of the southwest but there is some cold air wrap around this system. so cooler air is actually going to work in from the west-southwest as we go through the afternoon. also later this morning into this afternoon, still passing rain to snow shower out there. but it's not going to be constant. the best chance of getting some of the snow showers will be out through worcester county but even
a passing flurry or a brief snow shower overnight tonight as the temperatures cool and we still have this unstable air mass in place but the bulk of the snow will fall back to the berkshires and up to vermont over the next 24-hours or so. tomorrow cold and windy day, high temperatures mid 30s in worcester. near 40 in boston. the best we can do. it's going to feel a lot cooler than that thanks to the strong wind that will gust 40-50 passing shower. the snow totals piling up across northern berkshires up to vermont so it's quite the drop-off in terms of snow totals the farther east you go. i don't expect much here in central mass in eastern mass. worcester hills there might be minor accumulations later today and tonight as we get more snow showers working in. cold and gusty tomorrow. wednesday look like the pick of the week which coincides with a big travel week so that looks good. few showers rolling in on
