anyone with information or courage to call the -- are encouraged to call the f.b.i. ed: everybody's talking about what's to come. it's like 50 degrees. heather: i love it. i thought today was beautiful. the weekend is looking even better than ever. meteorologist: it's going to get warmer and warmer which is kind of nice. that's not going to be permanent by any means. but at least it's going -- coinciding with the weekend and at least it's in complete contrast with what we had to endure last weekend. early this morning i know it was cold when you stepped out. around 20. this was a little bit colder than average today. and for the month, we're running just a shade below average with all of our ups and downs. here's the tip-off of the warmup for tomorrow. look at cincinnati. right now, and st. louis. i mean, it's warm. it was over 70 in st. louis last hour. so that mild air wants to work its way in here. and i think most of us should see the 50's because i think we will see some sunshine tomorrow. but notice it's in the 30's now. so there has to be a separation, when you have a quick jump. that's known as a warm front. a little band of precipitation
6:17 pm
so boston, 37 now. wind is around to the south which shows eventually is going to warm up. but for now, it's just cold enough to support some snow. so we see some on radar. but i keep checking the reports, they're not reaching the ground because the ar i had ground level is still quite -- air at ground level is still quite dry. it's going to take a couple of hours to saturate the low levels. the first patch might not make it. might take the next narrow strip to move eastward and then perhaps snow. if it happens before midnight there could be a coating even around the boston area. if it takes the second patch after midnight, then we're going to start warming with that south wind and you'd have to probably go north of the pike and especially into the hiller terrain of worcester county. that's your best chance of maybe getting an inch or two of snow overnight. rest of us have maybe a dusting to an inch. that's not even a guarantee. then we see the clouds start to part tomorrow with a mild westerly wind. that's our ticket to 50-plus in most areas. but a little bit later tonight, a coating to an inch of snow is possible.
6:18 pm
mass pike. for the most part. what a contrast. how can you get a bigger change? we showed you earlier this week, from one morning to the next afternoon, springfield, massachusetts, jumped 72 degrees. from 17 below to 55. something almost as big when you compare one weekend to the neck. early last sunday morning in boston, you remember the nine below. now looks like about 52 for a high in boston. worcester, 16 below with a high of about 46 for sunday. that's not too shabby either in terms of change. how about tomorrow's temperatures? showing you one of the computer models which takes us about 50 and i think there's room to go a couple of degrees higher than that. on sunday we're mild by day, we'll start to turn colder at night. at the same time, a little wave of low pressure passes to the south. it may be far enough south that we don't get any precipitation. but if we do get onto the northern eng as it turns colder, it could mean a period of snow. maybe even a small accumulation overnight sunday night and over by monday morning in any event. once more i'd say still 50-50
6:19 pm
even do that, so we have a possibility of a sunday night mix ending in snow. but over by that morning commute. then monday, we are colder in the 30's. that starts to set us up for what's going to be happening after. notice, later on tuesday night, snow could break out. once we get into that later tuesday night period, here's the deal. if the storm and one storm stayed offshore, we could have snow or mix, a real winter-type storm. if it tracks closer to the coast, which is more likely, we're not going to be able to stay snow. it will turn to rain on the coast and an icy mix over the interior. it is way too early however to get into the specifics. but the possibility is there for a somewhat long duration, meaning sometime tuesday night to begin and maybe lasting into thursday with different forms of precipitation at different times. so we'll continue to follow that. i'll see you next hour. reporter: even with their many question marks, the red sox still have exclamation points
6:20 pm
up the middle, and in the benoit. so they're going to be good period. of course that comes with the asterisk, if they stay healthy. today was the first full workout for pitchers and catchers and only right-hander joe kelly was absent. his wife just had a baby. so he's excused. all the red sox position players are already down there. except for pedroia, ortiz, sandoval and young. so they'll all be getting there long after mike lynch. >> welcome to fort myers. first day of red sox pitchers and catchers workout. it's also our first opportunity to meet the red sox's new closer, craig kimbrel. >> i do better in big situations. i love seeing people in the seats. i love the crowds getting loud. i think that's just a great atmosphere to have. i know as a player i feed off of it, the entire team feeds off of it. i want that ball at the end of the game. i want to wrap it up and let everybody go home happy. so the more opportunities i
6:21 pm
put in that are tight situations, i think that's good. because hopefully more times than not, we can come out on top. i asked that from the guys around me and it usually works out pretty good, i think. i care about the guys in the bullpen. we don't know always know who those guys are going to be yet. especially this time of the year. when that bullpen comes together, i care about those guys. they're part of the time. i care almost more about how they do than i do. because i like to see guys succeed. because everybody feeds off each other. reporter: sox pitchers and catchers continue workout tomorrow. our coverage begins sunday night at 6:00. reporter: and 2 1/2 hours up by 75, the yankees opened camp in tampa. c.c. sabathia, who only won six of 29 starts last year, spent part of his offseason in a rehab facility for alcoholism. he says the experience was great and being alcohol-free should help him perform better. >> my body definitely feels
6:22 pm
i'll be able to go out and, i'll be 36 this summer, so any little thing that i can to stay healthy and kind of feel good is going to matter at this point. not drinking alcohol is probably a huge thing for me at this point in my career. reporter: also tonight, david lee, a member of the celtics for such a short period of time, and a player with so little impact, you may not even know -- that's not him. this is david lee. the guy who hasn't played a minute in the celtics' past 18 games and waived by the sell today. because the sell -- celtics agreed to a buyout with lee, he'll be able to sign with another team and the dallas mavericks are front runners there. he averaged seven points per game, but with a 15.-- $15.4 million salary, he was a big disappointment. celtics who went into the all-star break winning 10 of 12 games opened the second half of their season tonight in utah. we'll have the latest for you tonight at 11:00. ed: i said, that's not david lee. i kept saying, that's not david lee.
6:23 pm
reporter: couldn't fool you. heather: what was your first clue? ed: the golf shirt. reporter: new tonight at 7:00, analyzing d.n.a. with a portable and less expensive system. the invention that's helping everyone. and then, new at 11:00, we investigate digging into a multibillion-dollar building boom at the university of massachusetts. but the other things that are being put off during all the work and who's footing the bill on that. we'll see you then. ed: dining on the street. hanging at the hemingway museum. swimming with the dolphins on grassy key. and catching the sunset in malory square.
