8:15 am
really to drop overnight. in terms of how much rain we're talking about, not that much. only about a tenth of an inch to two tenths of an inch. we could really use the rain though because we're down over nine inches of rain for the year in boston. down over eight inches of rain for the year in worcester. you see this tan area here, that is an area that is under a moderate drought at this point. as you look over boston, it is cloudy. it is raining right now. 57 degrees. those winds temperatures shift to the north-northwest. >> that: will usher in the cooler air so the 12-hour timeline in boss top. by lunchtime we're dropping back into the 40's and by later on this evening, back into the mid 40's and even upper 30's in some spots. in fact, tonight overnight into first thing tomorrow we're waking up to temperatures in the 20's and mid 30 sos it's a chilly one. make sure you grab a coat if you're headed outside. then tomorrow through the day we're only going to warm up into the mid to upper 40's. we're going to see a lot of sunshine though tomorrow. that's one change and one added bonus but it's cold sunshine and
8:16 am
it's cold sunshine not only for sunday but also into monday. monday we start out the day in the 20's in most locations. and these are your average high temperatures for the day. so upper 30's, low 40's for highs. now that doesn't last too long because as we head towards tuesday and into wednesday, we turn milder. in fact, 50 by tuesday. 53 by wednesday. of course, that does come with some rain. it looks a good soaking rain tuesday night into wednesday morning tapering off into wednesday afternoon. behind that, we are going to turn colder as we head towards thursday and tbrie fry. frank and antoinette. antoinette: danielle, thank you. a check of the stories we're following right now. frank: police say four black lives matter protestors were arrested and one officer was injured during a rally in seattle. hundreds of people marched through the streets just as black friday shoppers swarmed stores in the downtown area. police say they stopped protestors from entering a tree-lighting ceremony was being held. that same ceremony was disrupted last year. antoinette: some of the
