cover caused a school bus accident. last year a springfield truck driver was killed in new york when a manhole cover flew through the windshield. now manhole covers can become dislodged for any number of reasons and sometimes it's because of issues underground. back in 2005 a study in massachusetts showed an average of 69 manhole incidents per year of course most of those do not impact the roads. lauren leamanczyk wbz news. >> thanks stay with wbz news as we learn more about why this accident happened and we will bring you the latest as soon as we get it. we have more breaking news tonight out where police are investigating a hit-and-run. boy was on his bike when i was -- when he was hit on lawrence street and the driver kept going. he is hospitalized with severe injuries and police are trying to track down the driver. we are tracking dangerous cold this weekend we are looking at wind chills as low as 25 below zero.

6:13 pm
18 in worcester and 19 nashua. chilly for the most but the cold stuff the source of it is up towards the arctic and that air is making a move towards us tonight and arrives around midday tomorrow. and right now you can see the arctic front lined up with the great lakes and a storm system along the delmarva peninsula bringing snow up across the area during the overnight hours. so chance for snow showers and best chance for a period of steadier snow say cross the cape and islands. not expecting big total but slick travel possible during the overnight. it's gone by tomorrow morning. accumulations of a coating to a couple inches and scattered coatings inland is what we expect overnight when it comes to the snow. some just brushing it aside by tomorrow morning. overnight low temperatures in the single digits. and then tomorrow we track the arctic front as it crosses the region. so many have asked if i will run with the boston marathon running who would i go outside tomorrow morning. it's not going to be pleasant but it will be in the teens. but the wind is not strong yet. i would finish by noon because
6:14 pm
winds start to funelling in from the north and west and temperatures fall during the afternoon when usually we have the highs. and by the evening we are on either side of zero by 8 p.m. and that's without the wind. so it's going to be very cold night for any of your saturday night valentine's day plans and when you add in the wind we are looking at wind chills from 20 to 30 below zeroch the worst is tomorrow evening -- zeroch worst is tomorrow evening tomorrow -- zero. the worst is tomorrow evening tomorrow night into sunday morning. the winds will start to decrease and as we head past lunchtime wind chill values are closer to zero. not nice but the danger not nearly as high on sunday afternoon. looking at air temps. well below zero region wide on sunday morning. only area that stays above zero lower outer cape as well as nantucket and only by a couple degrees. and the high temps in the single digits to lower teens on sunday. so indoor plans a great thing certainly and if you are taking care of the pets let them outside briefly and get them back inside. looking towards president's day
6:15 pm
we will start off cold and the clouds will increase and there's a chance of snow by the evening. and the next storm system that we are tracking is a potent one but the track looks to bring snow to ice and rain on tuesday as many areas will be warming through the 40s. here's the accu-weather 7-day forecast and next week a chance to thaw out from a high of 10 on sunday and 46 on wednesday. so ups and downs in the forecast. david and paul. >> that's the opposite of what you think. you think tomorrow is cold but that's when he says you should go running. because then it's going to be too windy. >> we can make it easy i am not i mean. >> we won't have to worry about that but hockey weather. >> levan reed the only -- reid on tv. >> i won't run outside either. that never will happen thanks paula.
