6:15 pm
commute has been very challenging for many. you could almost draw a line right now through boston. heaviest rains from boston northward. it's still raining south of boston but in general it's somewhat lighter and getting a little more sporadic, but there are still a couple of developments going on here. just look at this, south of nantucket at the end of the loop. that's a downpour. maybe even a thunderstorm. next few hours. so yes, the steadiest rains will be lifting northward but a couple of embedded downpours in eastern mass, and western mass you've seen the heaviest rain you're going to see from this. here's a close-up look. you can still see from manchester all the way across to portsmouth, heavy rain, and the north shore of boston very heavy rain as well. beverly, just still see from manchester pouring at this particular time. it continues along the water down toward scituate and

6:17 pm
in effect from 10:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m. so if you're around boston, even though it's not expected to go above flood stage, we do expect there will be some inundation, probably not as much as happened today, and make a little bit of splashover as well. a similar situation in scituate, revere and salem. 53 in boston. very poor visibility, in the wind and rain, it's mild from southeastern massachusetts to southeast connecticut but cool to the west as the storm is in this position and tracking up like that. few hours. these are your temperatures, by morning, and then tomorrow it will be at least in the 50's and could touch 60 if there is some sun in some spots in eastern and southeastern massachusetts. there you have it. tomorrow, a day of improvement. relative to today. but a much bigger improvement coming thursday and especially on friday. it looks like a great day but the pattern is going to change. saturday, increasing clouds. probably the better of the two weekend days.
6:18 pm
stream will take a change and put us on the colder side and once that happens, it looks like a change that's going to last a while. so next week for thanksgiving week, it does look like it will be kuwait bait colder. it does look dry in the early part of the week, but possibly not as we get toward thanksgiving but it's way too early to really say too much more than that. but the rains, well in moving northward overnight tonight and much of the rest of the week into the start of the weekend will be nice. enjoy it while you can. >>wi tonight we street you to check out the new it's an upgrade that's designed to deliver breaking news and weather not only faster, but using new technology to give you a better experience every time. the latest weather conditions and alerts, front and center on every page because we do care about the weather. that's for sure. best of all, our app and website now have the same streamlined look. if you're already using our app
