was driving down the pike trying to find an open dunkin' donuts. there was a sign that said watch out for falling snow coming off the sign. the stuff is frozen up there. danielle: that's right. it was that real wet snow. it stuck to the trees. it's like pulling the tree branches. antoinette: the trees are so much lower this morning. danielle: a lot of power outages at this hour. we are concerned with that. all that snow. we are going to melt it later today when we get above the freezing mark. but it will take its time so i just want to talk about the amount of snow we saw because we saw anywhere from over a foot in worcester to about 10 inches in leominster. these were the highest totals. boston picking up about 6.8 inches of snow from this. so in terms of where we are so far this season, we're at 17.2 inches of snow. last year though we were already at 54.2 inches of snow. our normal pace is 25.2 inches of snow. yes, we may start to catch up with our normal pace or go above week.
5:14 am
monday and tuesday have a medium chance of some snow. that will continue into wednesday. basically we're watching a series of systems. depending on which one goes first and where it goes will depend on what the second one does. let me tell you all about this because basically ware watching a system down to the south that still has to develop off this stationary front. it's going to be a coastal low pressure system. and it's going to ride up the coast. but it's all going to determine where that track is, how close it gets will then influence our second system we're watching out. here. it's a clipper system but it is going to redevelop after this one and it could potentially impact us too. of course there's a lot of question marks with this. we're going to go step by step with that in just a second. first i want to talk about today because today is going to be a good melting day after we get through this morning. as high pressure really dominates our weather which will give us a lot of sunshine at least through most of the day. there will be some clouds working their way in. right now over boston of obviously still dark. 25 degrees.
5:15 am
nilg that was wet and left untreated like sidewalks, parking lots, there could be some areas of black ice this morning. please be careful. the other thing is with a little bit of wind, it feels more like the teens out there. now as we go through the day, we are going to heat up into the upper 30's, low 40's. i i think that's a too high because of the snow pack. i think we'll stay in the upper 30's. tonight we'll drop back into the 20's and tomorrow a little more sunshine out there. we should warm into the 40's tomorrow. then notice those winds start to turn to the north and east and the clouds increase. here we go. sunday we are dry. here comes that system. it develops pretty quickly. look at the strength of this. track. right now it looks like it may fringe our coastline and potentially give southeastern mass the best chance of seeing some snow. however, areas inland could still see some snow too. in fact, from this. we're going to watch this second system develop an area of low pressure. that could be another chance for
5:16 am
afternoon into wednesday. monday's chance, the best chances for the snow totals going to be again southeastern mass, medium chance in boston. outside of 495 though a real low chance of seeing anything from this. again, this is still a couple days out. every model run is doing things differently. we're going to fine-tune this forecast for you because it could completely miss us. we may not see anything at all on monday. that would system number-two on tuesday a better chance of giving us some snow. either way you look at it, it looks like we're in for an unsettled pattern. temperatures are cold enough to support pretty much all snow. doug and antoinette. antoinette: danielle, thank you. time right now is 5:17. checking other stories happening right now. doug: the death toll is rising in taiwan after a 6.4-magnitude at least seven people are dead; hundreds are injured. 10-day-old baby is among the dead. the quake hit southern taiwan toppling a complex of two high-rise residential buildings. more than 250 people have been pulled from the rubble there and

danielle vollmar. antoinette: we are off to a morning. after all that snow, i know it can be a big pain but sometimes it leaves some gorgeous sights. danielle: indeed. last night, you know, that sunset? antoinette: amazing. danielle: it was incredible. i saw it. i know a lot of you did. i love all the pictures we're seeing on twitter and facebook. if you have some that you haven't tweeted or facebooked danielle vollmar. this one coming from susan in westborough. you can see the sunshine glistening over those snow-covered tree branches. notice it was a heavy, wet snow. that did take down a lot of tree limbs. it is still causing power outages at this hour. please be aware of that. be careful with that. and in terms of the snow, how much we picked up in boston. well, yesterday 6.8 inches fell. so far we're at 17.2 inches of snow. for the year in boston. on average for month, we get about 11.2 inches.
5:43 am
snowiest month on record for boston, picking up 64.8 inches of snow. so we are dry this weekend. which chances of snow enter the forecast beginning monday. it looks like tuesday and maybe even into wednesday now. we're going to talk more about that chance in just a second. first this morning, the concern with temperatures dropping below the freezing mark. any water on the sidewalk or on the back roads left untreated could freeze in form of some black ice. please be careful out there this morning. there. once we get through about lunch lunchtime we warm up above the freezing. that should lead to melting today especially with sunshine out there this morning. so that could help melt some of that snow-covered trees that we're seeing and roads and branches and all of that. now as we head towards tomorrow, we warm up even more. today we'll be in the upper 30's but tomorrow we're talking low to even mid 40's. we'll have a southwest wind that eventually turns on the north and east tomorrow night

system we're watching. basically it's a system that has yet to develop so the track is really unclear at this point. i know it's two days out but we're still flip flopping in terms of the models. right now here it is. it's a coastal low. then we're watching the second system up to the north. this one is going to redevelop behind this one. and bring us a second storm on tuesday. let's talk about the first one. as we go through monday morning, it looks like it may start snowing and there may be a mix on the cape and the islands to begin. quickly flipping over to some snow and then as we go through the day, it continues to blossom. now this model is bringing the snow all the way back to western not necessarily the cape. a lot of the other models tracking it farther off shore meaning the biggest impact for some snow would probably be southeastern mass and the east coast of massachusetts. but it's all going on depend on that first track and how it develops because then we're storm. if that one goes off to sea, this one has a chance of developing into an even stronger storm.
5:45 am
to more parts of the area. that storm on monday though right now, the best chances for the snow not giving out totals as of yet because that track is still uncertain. here are the bands we're talking about. high chances for some snow look likely on the cape and islands in southeastern mass. medium chances in this blue area. basically you get outside of 495, we're in a low chance for some snow. i mean you could still see it but it would be very light in nature. however, there is a chance that none of us see much if anything at all. just a couple of flurries as it goes off to sea. again we're watching that one. then we're watching the one on tuesday. this one is that second one that is going to redevelop just like the first one off the carolina coast. it's going to ride up the coast. that track is very key too to determine whether we see substantial snow or whether we see just flurries or any kind of grading our coastline. there are big question marks in this forecast. either way you look at it, it is cold enough for it to be mainly snow monday and tuesday and even into wednesday before we dry out
