eye on the the storm new england getting rade for a messy morning commute and quite a lot of snow. >> doesn't seem like there would be a record that is kept for this sort of thing but from temperatures like this to accumulation like we will see tomorrow, very odd. >> it's odd and it happened many times before but it's not something we see every winter but it's one of the the things that's tough to believe until you are in the
middle of it and then you go oh. it's interesting where whoa live is a fascinating place when it comes to the weather and what we are watching is a 180 from the past few days of 50s and 60s and biggest issue is the snow the accumulation and visibilities. significant totals across the area. wind not as strong as the
but with a heavy wet snowfall power outage are going to be a potential problem
for tomorrow. and something if you can be tomorrow snow event. so we have winter storm warnings out here in pink where the higher snow totals will be. winter weather advisory into new hampshire and toward the cape and south coast totals may be lower due to rain at the onset. temperature wise we are in the 50s from boston south and east. colder air off to the west. but marginally colder air. this is going to create some of the cold as the rape falls through the air -- rainfalls through the air cooling it down to flipping us to snow. see the area of moisture up theeast coast from the gulf of mexico some of the first showers up along the cape and southeastern massachusetts and it stays wet through the evening. no snowfall over the next several hours many if you have to run out it won't be icy or snowy. heading towards midnight, inkind -- an increasing a rainfall and we bring in the
occurring. first across worcester county with elevation and notice temperatures. even as it starts to snow for a couple hours at least, it is going to be above freezing. and that's why we have the very wet snowfall clinging to everything. and initially having a little difficulty accumulating. but heading deeper into the morning and 5:30, 6, that's the snow line pushing across the south shore all the way into plymouth county and towards new bedford by 7:30 and this should be very heavy snowfall rates that could be one to maybe 2 inches per hour from essex through boston and providence. this is going to be the main main corridor. during tomorrow morning temperatures are still above freezing here so it's wet snow and heading through the morning, the snow line continues to move down across the cape and finally exiting the cape heading into tomorrow evening. so snow totals it's 4 to 8 inches yes it's an increase from yesterday for sure. and the storm system tracking farther west than expected yesterday. worcester is in the 4 to 8 and
north and west of worcester 2 to 4 inches turning more light and fluffy here over time. it starts wet but colder temperatures in this part of the state. then towards the cape and nantucket it's a few inches of wet snowfall but a lot of rain the storm. eventually. the biggest impacts is the storm all about tomorrow morning. it's going to be a really sloppy go if you with work from home there could be a pretty good idea. maybe school districts will end up seeing the first snow day of the year. and by tomorrow evening conditions improve. and in terms of the winds peak gusts at 20 to 40 miles per hour again sometimes the biggest storms are 50, 60 and 70 miles per hour but it's the wet snow combined with the wind that creates the issue for power outages. temperatures staying in the 30s all day tomorrow. and things quieting down tomorrow night and weekend very peaceful no weather issues and bright skies on saturday and into sunday and maybe a place like frsh snow and colder
on saturday and the low 40s on sunday. now next week, winter is in action for us. we've a chance for a coastal storm on tuesday and that's the time frame to watch and cold all next week and through next weekend and you knew the change was coming eventually. school yard shout out barry burbank visit st. agatha in milton. school moth theo celebrate christian mothos and excel in education. well behaved kids. >> and they could be getting a snow day maybe tomorrow right? >> it's the best chance so far this year for sure. so check out the website cbs boston.com. the opioid epidemic is taking lives each and every day and so far there's no perfect solution. >> there's a group staying clean with something that's laced their sneakers and tonight i go in their shoes. >> >> reporter: early on a saturday. >> great day for a run.
