6:06 pm
but clinton wound up winning by 2.5 points. to pull off a similar reversal against sanders would be an even more impressive chore. sanders is a senator from neighboring vermont. he has a strangle he had on young voters and 10 to 30-point lead in polls. clinton has not questioned sanders' adeals, but she and her husband have proposed his fixing unachievable, calling him pipe dreams. while he frames himself as a democratic socialist, she describes herself as a progressive who can get things done. we are outside the field house here at southern new hampshire university. this is where the clinton campaign will be setting up shop tonight. now the secret service is inside doing their customary sweep.

6:14 pm
all across the city, road cones, chairs, crates, all of them brought to south boston. dartmouth police posting this picture on their facebook page of a wanted fugitive named jack frost. he's suspected of creating a system of interconnected tunnels all over southeastern massachusetts. they say you should be on the lookout and not for nothing. that's a little spooky, you know? he'll be back tomorrow. let's check in with eric. >> you read that story like you're reading to your boys before bed. the voices. that's critical for good story telling. not too much snow. but the snow capital of new england so far is cape cod. more than concord. more than albany, more than burlington. more than cleveland and detroit so far this winter. we're still below average for snow across much of the area. temperatures tonight falling back through the 20s.
6:15 pm
and another winter system starting to approach. we missed another storm today. that's off to our south and east. you see it in there, to the east of nantucket. another piece in the mid- atlantic, we're watching for tomorrow. another one in the great lakes, and that arrives thursday. tonight overnight lows mid-and upper teens. tomorrow morning we'll watch the snow showers arrive. i think most of them begin around mid-morning. shouldn't be a big impact for the morning commute. it's a smattering of snow showers, but they're convective, almost like thunderstorms. so the biggest concern for tomorrow is not big snow or issue for shoveling, but more about driving around. you get into a heavy snow shower, snow stacks up quickly
6:16 pm
coating to as much as 2 inches. likely from boston southward. be on the look out. if you are traveling around, could see poor visibility. high temps tomorrow, low to mid- 30s. not terribly cold to go with that snow. southerly winds tomorrow. thursday another cold front passes through. more scattered snow showers likely. on friday a quiet day before the next front arrives. that is an arctic cold front and that one we are all going to feel this weekend, no question about it. if you were thinking back to last winter and the fond memories of february, this is the type of air we're talking about. we'll keep a close eye on this. the trend has been farther east, giving us a few snow showers, but something we have to monitor. behind it all the cold air pours straight down out of the arctic and we could see sub zero numbers even into boston. it's only happened nine times in the last 21 years. sub zero temperatures region-
