5:17 am
school where it's 44. the temperatures are about the same as they were yesterday morning at this time. how about november so far? we actually did sneak out a red square yesterday. it didn't seem like we had above average temperatures at least in the boston area, north and west. but in boston south we added up with a plus two. so the median temperature for the month is plus.113. last week we had red squares and most of the week it's been on the chilly said, that's for sure. and it still looks like we have somech in the next few days. doesn't look to me like it's going to get up to 48 like it did yesterday, not too far away. i think it's going to be 46 today. in the lower 50s to 50 on cape cod yesterday. got barely to 40 in the north and west of boston. those were your highs. today it will be a little bit higher north and west of boston, but not much. we're starting out mostly in the 30s, as you can see. we go to the north, mostly middle 30s and all these checkpoints coming down into massachusetts, upper 30s northwest of boston, 40 at logan airport, low 40s, then
5:18 am
it's overcast and it's pretty much foggy everywhere, and the visibility is very poor in many locations, but not in every single spot, for example taunton has a visibility of 10 miles, but bedford has a visibility of 3/4 miles. much of the fog is northern new england and down into massachusetts and a few pockets over southeastern mass as well. so the high temperature today across -- the high temperatures today across the nation, well, 40s to the north, so a little bit warmer in chicago today than it was yesterday. some 50s and some phoenix, brownsville, texas and orlando, florida, 75 to 80 in those spots. the weather map is kind of nonscript, not that much going on. in upper levels of the system coming along here that will give us a couple of chance of showers or a little mist today. so let's break it down for you as we go through this saturday morning. we got temperatures which are going to be going up. now, the fog is going to be lifting. it's not going to be dense fog all day, but it's not going to turn out to be nice and sunny
5:19 am
system out west, a little rain over southeastern mass, but it doesn't look like a big deal, just some scattered showers and much of the time it will be rain free but feeling still that damp feel to it. tonight it'll stay cloudy as well. and by morning it's going to start to clear up, break up as the storm develops offshore, a little thrust of dryer air in here should mean tomorrow we see a decent amount of sunshine, patches of clouds may be around, but for the most part it's looking good. but tomorrow we get a lot of wind and the breeze will be out 25 miles an hour. here's my accuweather forecast. fog lifting but staying cloudy today, a shower or touch of mist can't be ruled out, partly sunny tomorrow, sunny all day on monday. monday we get breezy weather in the morning, and, by the way, tomorrow it gets rather windy. rain arrives here tuesday afternoon, and it's wet on wednesday, wettest weather will be late wednesday into thursday morning, and then we get sunshine back on friday. so about the same temperature almost every single day there

5:46 am
35. let's go down to the cape and say hello to the folks down in booster at the stoneybrook elementary school, it's 43 this morning, so the temperatures are very similar to what we had yesterday morning across the route, but we have a lot of dense fog this morning, particularly so across much of northern massachusetts and southern and central new hampshire. there are pockets of fog south of the mass pike, but doesn't look like it's quite as widespread as it is to the north. so be aware of that and allow extra time for travel if you're going out early this morning. these are of course, chilliest at the summit of mount washington where it's 21 there. we got some 30s and 40s on the map here, some 20s to the north and we got to give our wave up there, wave to folks up at baker lake, 9 degrees up there this morning, not as chilly as it was last weekend when it was subzero there. how about the nation today? not doing too bad in terms of temperature, not terribly warm, but, hey, this is the end of november here, so we're not doing too bad. could be a lot worse. we got 40s and 50s here, as you can see.
5:47 am
beautiful weather out in the southwestern part of the united states. warm to the south, we got readings around 80 degrees or so in parts of florida today, about close to 80 in orlando. well, high pressure is governing most of the nation with the exception of this wet weather system which produced quite a bit of rain in a couple spots in places like oregon yesterday. high pressure is really sprawled out and not much is going on. so if you're traveling today or tomorrow back to your destination, back to home or going wherever from the th like pretty decent traveling conditions coming up. there is this weak system here which is going to spill some showers into parts of the region. you can see it's most concentrated in new york state now. it's moving in this general direction, so the showers will be pointing right up into parts of massachusetts, especially northwestern part of massachusetts. this other area of rain down in here looks like it's not going to expand as much as we thought yesterday it would be expanding up over southeastern mass to give this area some rain today, but it doesn't look like that's the case.
5:48 am
state into the berkshires, probably some snow there this morning. and then sort of weakens with time and just loses its identity as this area of rain comes up over parts of extreme southeastern massachusetts. there may be a couple of scattered showers or spots of mist which form during the day, but the idea is the fog which we have is going to lift, but the clouds really aren't going to clear out to give us nice sunshine. but we should start to have some tomorrow as low pressure does develop offshore, the wind downsloping, we get drying, we get sunshine tomorrow. in fact, we may have the sun out first thing tomorrow morning, even if it's out, we may have a few patches of clouds forming. but it looks like finally we get some sunshine for the second half of the weekend. high temperatures today around 45 here to maybe as high as 48 to 50 down toward the cape, lower 40s off to the north and west, and your low temperatures tonight middle 30s in boston to lower 30s off to the north and west, to the upper 30s on cape cod. and tomorrow we get wind.
5:49 am
there won't be much today, but there will be tomorrow, 12 to 25 miles per hour winds and the temperature tomorrow should be in the lower 40 nz boston, middle 40s on cape cod. you can see that in my seven- day accuweather forecast. and temperature isn't going to change too much over the next several days, mostly in the middle 40s, a little chillier tomorrow as noted. the sunshiniest day will be monday, rain starts here for the afternoon commute on tuesday. it's going to be drizzly and wet and dank on wednesday morning, in fact, all day and then it gets wetter late wednda night and thursday morning, and then it dries out later next week. so that's your seven days ahead. let's go to the trivia for this hour. with all the fog that's around, here's the trivia. the poem titled "fog" was written by carl sandberg, robert frost, william shakespeare or how about roger kipling? >> going with carl sandberg on this one, barry. >> you knew this one, kerry. >> you taught me this.
