day but we've got clouds both days. rain primarily tomorrow afternoon and again wednesday afternoon. still in the darn drought. this willtic a while to kick the drought out of here. one to two inches of rain by the time it moves out wednesday night again this won't happen tomorrow and again on wednesday but by the end of the rainy event here we're thinking one to perhaps even more than two inches of beneficial rain. 30's and 40's right now. crisp and chilly and you notice some colder numbers here orange in jaffrey i think for some of you perhaps tomorrow morning. there may be a little bit of patchy freezing drizzle in those normally colder spots. the nooks and crannies of southern new england where cold air can be kind of tough to wedge out and dislodge which cold air is this time of year. but essentially this is a rain maker heading for southern new england. clear skies right now. clouds will taken up overnight tonight. chilly, 30 to 36 from this storm system right here and again it's wound up something fierce with snow on the backside but even up
and wisconsin it's rain for those folks. twin cities today we're up into the 50's for a time this morning so there is a warm system. and we will essentially be on the warmer side of the weather system although you may look at the numbers tomorrow and again on thursday and say not all that warm heading this way. that's the case. so here you go, we have one batch of rain coming at us tomorrow afternoon from this little area of low pressure even though the main low remains out there but it will spin off these little baby lows then here comes another wednesday afternoon. so each afternoon will offer the rain and at times rain may be briefly heavy late tomorrow afternoon and again wednesday afternoon. i think the worst part of that will be the fact that it's occurring during the evening commute tomorrow and again on wednesday. the morning commute each day will just feature clouds and some patchy drizzle tomorrow morning then as we work into the afternoon rain and showers. temperatures 40's to oddly enough the warmest part of the day for the city of boston is late in the afternoon and more likely tomorrow evening.
34 been through the worcester hills route 2 corridor there may be a little bit of patchy freezing drizzle in this pinkish coloring in here. not to say that everyone will experience that. even if you do it will be very light. not like it's heavy freezing rain event but it doesn't take much to foul-up your morning commute. just be mindful of that. then the numbers tomorrow afternoon will climb into the 40's. metro boston upper 40's, the seacoast merrimac valley, middle 40's with rain tomorrow afternoon. even ith monadknock region, low 40's tomorrow and out on to the cape and islands probably the one area that will reach the 50's tomorrow will be the cape and south coast so that's rain number one on the way for tomorrow afternoon. then on wednesday morning there is a break then here comes the second batch of rain into new england on wednesday afternoon and then this will move out of here wednesday night. so how much rain? again i think most of us one to two inches of beneficial rain and even some numbers above two inches of rain possible with a couple of downpours stacked up
we work toward the end of the week thursday is a nice one. little breezy but mild. friday lots of sun, less wind, near 50 on friday. >> anchor: thanks so much, jr. football fans looking forward to tickets to the super bowl for life. bud life is handing out 37,000 of these colden cans hid men case as cross-country. if you find one and take a picture and post it on social media with the given hash tags there you can head to the super bowl every year leading up to the big game. six winners chosen per week to get season tickets to their then from that group the grand prize winner will be picked. imagine that, every super bowl. >> anchor: don't go anywhere. you run out of the house. it's like i see a movie in the making. still ahead on 7 it's time to see who did it better. break bri eggers tackling a challenge with the patriots great. see who scored in it food fight. >> reporter: concerns after a break in the at a marblehead school. two people arrested.
