from the latest democratic debate. >> from the channel 4 studios in boston, this is wbz this morning. >> good morning to you it's 5:00 on the dot. i am chris mckinnon. >> i am kathryn hauser. we appreciate you being here on this friday february 5th. get ready for a messy commute. you can see the flakes are falling in lexington off 128. conditions changing dramatically in the last 45 minutes. let's get the latest right now danielle niles is tracking theforce. we have team coverage with danielle and pamela. >> you are right. we will track that rain snow line as it continues to press eachward-- eastward and you saw on the roads they are wet but those roadways will deteriorate really across southern new england. so let's zoom in a little bit. temperatures in the middle 30ssomewhere north of worcester
and that rain snow line has been coming inside 128 now so you get near andover up 93 and we have been mixing with wet snow neighbors back into the merrimack valley. in boston 37 at logan airport and get just west of town inside 128 we are seeing some of the wet snowflakes mixed in and it happens when the precipitation starts to come down harder. we are seeing some of the rain transition over to snow. back down near franklin seeing some of the snow mix in as well. that will continue to press south and east from brockton back up to quincy over the next let's say hour and 20 minutes or so. north and west of that, it's all snow and coming down lighta at light clip and rain in southeastern massachusetts. so that rain snow line will continue to work south and east and winter weather advisories and winter storm warnings that are up until 3 p.m. this afternoon. the winter storm warning does providence. it's widespread plowable commute. rain changing to snow between
widespread 4 to 8 inches for many of us and because of the consistency of the snow heavy and wet, there may be isolated outages that result in the heaviest areas of 5,6, 7-inch. pamela is standing by and we will watch the rain snow line closely. >> we are and we will see that snow pile up. it will continue to pile up for the next several hours through the afternoon. here's the hour by hour 5 a.m.starting you off. freeing line over boston. -- freezing line over boston and more snow from fitchburg and bedford in boston 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. the freezing line pushes as far south and east as the cape cod canal by 9 a.m. heavy abe ex-- rain expected with a rain snow mix on the outer cape and islands. we expect lesser totals there. so the snow continues in boston and taunton and plymouth through the afternoon but slowly tapers off from west to east late this afternoon. that evening commute should be
few lingering flurries not out of the question on the cape and islands from 5 to 7 p.m. all clear overnight and watch out for icy patches as we get into your weekend forecast. snow today 4 to 8 inches in boston and inside 495 outside 495, 2 to 4 inch rain. lesser amounts because of the rain and temperatures above the freezing mark for a long period of time on the cape and islands. and we wouldn't be surprised if we did see a couple locations getting 8 inches or more. we will keep track of the latest updates coming up for now traffic and weather together. >> i feel compelled to say halfy weather person's day and it's snowing we have a couple important traffic reminders. mass d.o.t. says hov lane on 93 will not be opened to vehicles this morning right now there are more than state roads. they say the road temperatures
very wet and that's the case on the mass pike looking live at alwayston look at that you can see the sheen on the road looking at the it. so be sure to use caution if you have to go in and drive in the rain or snow to work today. >> susie thanks very much. on this storm. >> we will check the conditions for you across the area. chantee lans is live and nicole jacobs is live. let's begin with nicole and conditions changing in the last half-hour or so nicole. >> reporter: absolutely kathryn. we are seeing the steady snowthat feels wet as danielle snow. if you look here along the mass pike you can see it's not the point. we do know according to mass d.o.t. there are d. massdot this are

friday morning. look outside, this is natick. mass pike you can see the snow is falling and it's definitely moving our way. >> and it is sticking too. you can see the ground looks more white now. changing minute by minute here. let's check the forecast. danielle you have been a busy woman this morning. >> the conditions you are going to -- are going to deteriorate. it will come down hard enough and the conditions will go downhill on the roads. here's live radar we have been tracking the rain snow line. temperatures 32 in worcester. 37 in boston. and we have 35 to the lower 40s in the the cape where colder air will take longer zooming into the rain snow line right now. coming over the station. in through fenway park. boston logan airport will see some wet snowflakes mix in. but it's now into alwayston and brighton and extends up along 93.
in in southern now ham sheer from chester to derry and nashua. more rain drops the closer you get to the coast. wet flakes will mix in and when the the precipitation comes down harder we are seeing the flip over from natick to lexing on and -- lexington and now south and east of boston. so where you see some of the deeper oranges and reds we are seeing some wet snowflakes mixed in too. brockton stretching east on the south side of scituate and mainly rain over southeastern massachusetts including the cape. but that rain snow line watch what happens presses south over the next our and can be hour and a half -- hour and a half and takes a little longer on the mid and outer cape to late morning to change over and continues to snow right on through the early afternoon. so we have slowed down the timing ever so slightly until about 2:00 we wrap up the snow in worcester and at 3 in the boston takes a little bit longer in the cape until about 5:30 or is 6. but intensity will taper off and clearing
so things will freeze up heading into overnight tonight. no change in the snow accumulation map. 4 to 8 inches a wet pasty snow. more like 2 to 4 where it takes longer to make the change. so cape and islands maybe more like a coating to 2 on nantucket and northern worcester hills the amounts will taper off the farther north and west you go. so there will be impacts and pamela gardner is standing by with more on that. hi. >> hi. it's the timing of this that's making it a higher impact event. this morning because it's hitting during the morning commute, the snow accumulation impact event. wind at the coastline not as bad as the last storm that pushed through. but the wind will make an issue for us damaging winds outages because of that wet and heavy snowfall on the power lines and on the trees as we get that transition from rain to snow later on. wind gust projection 10 to 20 miles per hour in boston and inland. but right along the coastline
miles per hour at times coming from the north here. so that's how we can expect some of the power outages out there. danielle back to you because temperatures are a big issue too. >> they are a big issue. because the colder air continues to come in tonight. anything untreated will be slick. overnight lows teens and 20s. the weekend still looks good as the storm departs and high pressure will build in this weekend. sun and a few clouds up around 40. and a little weak cold front on sunday doesn't mean a whole lot for us. maybe a few building clouds and we turn our attention to the next storm and you will see it in the 7-day. watching the time frame of later monday on into tuesday and we could be grazed by a storm with periods of significant snow on tuesday and then still on the 30s through the middle part of the week. one storm at a tight and -- time and for now a school visit. barry what blast with 180, 3, 4 and 5th graders from the school in wednesdayy massachusetts there. school mascot the bears. and they are proud to be peace

southeast with the rain snow line. 5:30 this morning we continue to 6:30 and the freezing line right there, starts to push towards the cape and islands. keep in mind we will get more of that wet rain and snow mix with that heavy snowflake accumulation in hyannis and that's not going to be until later. that will affect your snow total. for us fitchburg and taunton we see the snow accumulating throughout the morning into the afternoon. here's 11:30, past the lunch hour by 2 p.m. dealing with light snow. most of the accumulation is over except for on the cape and islands. we will see light accumulation and some compaction because the snow is going to be so wet and so pasty. all the snow moves out by the evening commute except for outer cape and islands where we expect snowflakes to linger's tad longer. 4 to 8 in boston and inside 495, 2 to 4 inch range right along the south coast cape and islands due to the rain.

indication of how cold it is getting. i can tell you massdot says the roadways are still above freezing. so we are not seeing much of an impact on the the roads. you can see certainly traffic moving just fine. we foe there are over 1100 crews on the ready out there on the roads ready to go when the peak of the storm hits which of course as we have been saying is right in the miel of rush hour -- middle of rush hour. the fast pace going on the mass pike is likely to slow down quite a bit as the conditions worsen throughout the morning. of course we know massdot lowers the speat limit as things worsen but we will monitor it here in natick. for now back to you. >> thanks very much. kids in boston getting an extra many schools closed. scrolling at the bottom of the screen because of the snow as nicole was showing you.

(cell phone rings) where are you? well the squirrels are back in the attic. mom? your dad won't call an exterminator... can i call you back, mom? he says it's personal this time... if you're a mom, you call at the worst time. it's what you do. if you want to save fifteen percent or more on car insurance, you switch to geico. r it's what you do. where are you?r it's very loud there. are you taking at zumba class? new england's energy comes from a pool of energy producers. eversource buys it at a set market price and delivers it to you. but that pool is shrinking,
it is a messy commute on this troy morning and jon keller wants to make sure you get to work in a safe and timely manner. >> we all do right so he put together a check list of things to do before you hit the road. >> reporter: good morning. wait, what is that stuff outside your window? why it's snow. small ice particles known to fall from the sky during winter in new england and sometimes during fall and spring as well. we have not seen much snow this season and we had more than our fill last winter let's face it, memories are short. and there may be some of you new to the garden of eden unfamiliar with snowstorms. so, here's a quick reminder of what snow does and how to deal with it. first if you plan to drive to work this morning leave extra time for several reasons. you must thoroughly remove all
you take it on the road. not just a grapefruit sized hole in the windshield to pier through. failure to do so is against the law and will earn you the utter contempt of other drivers. especially the ones who get the snow on your roof deposited on their car when you hit the brakes. then, there's the driving itself which will be slow going. snow is wet and wet roads are slippery roads. trust me on this. if you are planning on taking the t you might also encounter delays. see the mbta has been designed and maintained to run smoothly in all weather conditions. that might occur in san diego. new england weather not so much. and a final tip. when you shovel, lift with your knees not your arms or back and get it cleared away fast before it freezes. and don't think you can leave it for spring to take care of. there's no telling when that may arrive.
firstname.lastname@example.org or via twitter at keller at large. >> call this one another win- wynn state ending the battle over the wynn project. they approved a deal between the city and the las vegas casino giant. under the agreement boston dropped the lawsuit and wynn will pay an extra 400,000 dollars totaling 2 million in compensation each year. lawsuits from somerville and revere are pending. rhode island says fantasy sports sites are legal under state law. the attorney general reviewed the rules of the sites like fandueel and draftkings found there's enough chance and skill and other states determined the online games to be illegal. it's 5:41 and it's snowing outside. here's a live look in natick along the mass pike. >> a messy morning. stay with us. you are watching wbz this
from postal workers to nurses... he's been endorsed for real change: bernie sanders. endorsed by friends of the earth action as "a bold, fearless voice for the planet." the nation endorses bernie saying, "you can trust sanders because he doesn't owe his political career to the financial overlords." the nashua telegraph declares: "he's not beholden to wall street money." the valley news says, "sanders has been genuinely outraged about the treatment of ordinary americans for as long as we can remember." i'm bernie sanders
>> yeah we have been watching the rain snow line all morning and it's pressing south and east now. so we have just seen a report that came in from the national weather service based in taunton and they made the changeover and it's all snow and sticking on grassy surfaces and colder surfaces like windshield of cars. temperatures at 39 on the east side of taughton at taughton the colder air is coming so the rain snow line will continue to press south and east here so bridgewater and plymouth is next. precipitation comes down harder, too, we are getting wet snowflakes that mix in and that may be the case east of there as well. snowflakes coming downright here at wbz studios and some of the deeper blues indicate where the snow is coming down at a steadier calypso have an e-mail from mark that said an inch of snow on ground and we are talking about sterling to clinton back up near boxboro and that's where we have the moderate burst of snowch
anticipating conditions to deteriorate on the roads over the next several hours as that band shifts east and that rain snow line continues to transition through mid to late morning on the cape. we have had reports all morning coming in and pamela gardner is standing by with the weather watcher reports. we are always thankful for these. >> they are valuable especially when we are dealing with the rain to snow transition. brian in belmont new hampshire reporting 32 degrees snow picked up in intensity quickly since it started and now a coating is on the ground. but heading to the south and east here, we are experiencing more rain according to denise in plymouth and it's a wind driven rain. but soon denise you will see that freezing line head your way seeing the transition from rain to snow. for more on the timing of that transition we go back to danielle. >> that rain snow line you mentioned coming into plymouth in the next hour or so. you are seeing the wet flakes mix in southeastern mass by 8 a.m. the rain snow line by thecape
in the upper cape and then transitioning last from nantucket it may take until midday until early afternoon. snow continues on through the early afternoon. so deeper blues
burst of moderate and at times heavy snow as much as an inch per hour at times and the clearing comes in snow as in worcester around 2 gib or take. 3 in the city of boston and then farther south of east and intensity tapers off. snowfall total accumulation 4 to 8 inches and big swath from mass. 2 to 4 taking longer to make the transition over the cape and islands like a coating to two on nantucket and well north and west of the boston. well outside 495 and that's where amounts will taper off from 2 to 4 and coating to two.
teens and 20s. anything untreated will be slippery as we head into the morning hours tomorrow. keep that in . but we will get -- in mind. but we will get melting. upper 30s tomorrow a nice sunday. highs will top out a little afternoon. accu-weather seven-day, the into tuesday. we may get grazed by a storm on monday and periods of snow on tuesday. should be out of here by the middle part of the week. temperatures will be chilly running in the lower to middle 30s. traffic and weather together susie how is it looking. >> reporter: oh getting busier by the minute. massdot saying hov lane on 93 will not be opened to vehicles this morning. right now there are more than 1100 snow crews treating state roads and road temperatures are still above freezing but very slick out there. two lanes are blocked by the accident on the expressway north we have been talking about at columbia road. you are stop and go from freeport street.
