and groton and -- shirley and groton and an inch of show on a deck. the closer you get to the coastline it's raining in essex but the snow line will make eastward progress and in the southeast part of the state, we have snow coming down in some places like taunton where we have made the flip and the farther south and east you go mainly rain at this point. but we will transition over and pamela gardner has a closer look at the hour by hour timeline. >> it's mainly where that freezing line is going to be. throughout the duration of the morning, through the afternoon the freezing line sinks to the south and east. hour by hour going through the next several hours, you see we have all snow from boston to bedford and taunton. plymouth is when you start to see that rain changing over to snow. the wet heavy snowflakes will be pasty with the accumulation amounting to added weight to the tree limbs and trees and power line as well. 10 a.m., starting to see the

morning on 93. the being pressway north is slow from the braintree split to columbia road because an earlier accident. 16 minute delay right now and an earlier spin out in sharon is still causing delays on 95 north. north of town volume building on 93 a it's slow going on route 2 through concord and route 16 the mass pike is a speed limit ride. so good there at least. chris and kathryn. >> thanks very much. speaking of the mass pike here's boston. you can see speed limit right into the city but we are dealing with the deteriorating thestate. >> it's going to get more and crews are checking out conditions in number of areas including boston and natick. chantee lan it is live in copley square nicole jacobs is live along the mass pike and nicole. >> reporter: still coming down and i can tell you it's getting colder out here.
what we are seeing in the parking lot is slushy but lock here on the grass. you can see we are starting to get a little bit of accumulation. so we can actually see the snow sticking now here in natick. along the roadways we are told by massdot that the roads are still above freezing. so they are not saying seeing much freezing or impact on the roadways yet. i imagine slushy as we see here in the parking lot. but certainly, commuters are going at a normal clip. that could change as the commute picks up. we know the weather will pick up as well he. the snow will pick up -- as well. the snow will pick up and perhaps massachusetts state police will lower that speed limit to about 45 which is what they normally do. we know there are over 1100 pieces of equipment that massdot has on the roadways. they are telling us they are chemically treating the roads inpreparation for what's
in other parts of the state. so certainly we will keep you updated here in natick for sure but elsewhere as well. that's the latest in natick. nicole jacobs wbz this morning. >> thanks for the update. boston is just one of many cities and towns where students will get a long weekend because of the snow. >> isn't that nice. see the closings and delays at the bottom of the screen. all morning long chantee lan it is live in copley square and too. >> reporter: that's right. it's coming down and a little mix with rain and it's not quite sticking yet. we are waiting for that but you may see kid out here later because they won't be in school. this happening after wofton -- boston mayor walsh announced the schools will be closed in preparation for the storm that is happening right now. the mayor says he doesn't want to take chances. the public works department will have 500 trucks

and dr. ben carson and businesswoman carly fiorina has 3%. for democrats senator sanders has a 24. lead over former secretary of state hillary clinton 57 to 33%. these results are consistent with other polls in the last few days. but the large number of voteers who say they still have an open mind means the rankings could change dramatically. starting at 5 this afternoon on wbz, we will get you closer to what new hampshire voters are saying they like and dislike about candidates. what issues are top of mind for them and we will point you toward the keys to understanding where this unpredictable election is headed next when we dig deeper into the details of the exclusive wbz, umass amherst poll. jon kel are at large wbz. a boost for chris christie this morning. wbz learned that massachusetts governor charlie baker will be endorsing the new jersey
each democratic candidate for president urged the other attacks. but that doesn't mean last night's debate lacked fireworks. >> i am very proud to be the only candidate up here who does not have a super pact. >> i think it's time to end the very artful smear that you and your campaign have been carrying out. >> oh come on. >> a lot of debate focus on which candidate is best positioned to act as an independent voice away from the lobbyist and special interest groups that populate dc but addressed income equality and foreign policy. >> i said we will not send american combat trips to sear yoia or iraq that's off the table -- syria or iraq that's ousts table. but we've special force and trainers. >> i think our great task is to make certain that our young men and women in the military do not get sucked in into a never

this is a live look in lexington. conditions have been deteriorating. >> we want to check in with our team of meteor gist pamela gardner but first danielle niles. >> the roads are more wet than white. and we anticipated that to be the case until the snow starts to come down harder. and we are seeing road conditions deteriorate across central massachusetts now. notice moisture extends to the south and west. so we have a ways to go before this storm is said and done. zooming into the live radar. temperatures dropping all morning and we are 34 degrees in the city of boston. and have made the change over to all snow in the city. that rain snow line just south of town. now coming through quincy with wet flakes and extends through bridgewater and brockton into taunton. and in some deeper yellows and oranges that's where we are seeing precipitation come down harder and wet snowflakes mix in as well. new bedford back up to plymouth
so gib or take. north and west of boston this is the band we are concerned within terms of steadier and moderate snow from the city of worcester back up to paxton so marlboro is back up through lowell and drake so along 495. this will shift a little bit farther to the east over the course of the morning. so we will watch the rain snow line closely and, of course, the wind thankfully pamela not a big issue with the storm but it's a little gusty this afternoon. >> yeah. the wind does pick up later today. but we want to first go to the hour by hour forecast because temperatures play a huge role and looks like we will have some snow transitioning to rain even for our fren to the south. as we get towards the later part of the morning. so that snow will start to pile up in boston in bedford and taunton especially where we get the heavier snow bands. visibility will watch that be reduced later on today. 8:30 in the morning the snow line that freezing line right
to the south and east. and then moving towards the outer portions of the cape and islands but it's going to be a very wet snow. it's going to compact a lot and with more rain expected that's why totals will be a little less as we will show you. but boston and bedford and taunton we are getting so much snow in long period of time it will pile up and we have higher totals. 2:30 p.m. we will see things clear out from west to east throughout the later part of the afternoon this evening and that evening commute a little easier although a few linger snow showers expected on the cape and islands. in for snow totals we expect anywhere from 4 to 8 inches in boston and 4952 to 4 inch rain to the north and west and lesser amounts to the south and east. wouldn't be surprised if we did see an isolated location getting 8 inches or higher but factor too. >> and it's the west pasty consistency. you mentioned there may be isolated outages that result and 20 to 40 miles per hour at
see the hour by hour forecast so not strong enough to be a damaging wind threat and there's gust playing through especially from cape anne to cape cod. speaking of tonight we drop into the teens and 20s. so anything untreated is going to ice up overnight tonight as the colder air comes n storm departs weekend still looks good. sunshine a few clouds mixing in for saturday. looks like a nice winter day. gets a little gusty saturday night. sunday here comes a cold front and not a lot of moisture and brings a few passing clouds late in the day. next storm to watch look at that. out over the ocean on monday. this may graze us into monday and then there's another disturbance back to the west that we may have to watch into the tuesday time frame. so a active stretch in the middle part of next week. upper 30s for tomorrow. 42 boston for sunday.
