(car alarm sounds)
it's 5:12. welcome back. lake geneva just
swallowed up about a dozen cars using the icy surface as a parking lot. doug: probably the first mistake. the eyeopener's frank holland back now to explain what went wrong here. it looks like a lot. frank: doug and antoinette, that's absolutely right. plenty of people out to watch an ice sculpting competition nearby, parking their cars on the ice; but this year just
those cars. about a dozen cars fell into a barely-frozen lake geneva. dozens of cars parked closely together. right after the ice broke, laurie oberhelman's honda c.r.v. getting pulled to shore-- a decision she says she regrets. laurie: i think it's stupid to park on ice. now i won't do that again! but live and learn, right? frank: a tough lesson learned there. luckily no one was injured. temperatures were just above freezing, but wisconsin has seen a fairly mild winter. and many lakes in southern wisconsin are dealing with poor ice conditions. doug: really? you need a thermometer to tell you that. antoinette: we for the most part aside from a couple days ago had a very mild winter. just stay away from the ice. danielle: especially today as temperatures warm well above freezing into the 40's. you see behind me it's a very active radar, folks.
we have two storm systems we're watching. the first one looks like the bigger punch coming in tomorrow, into tomorrow night, into first thing tuesday morning. that's why i have the high risk of snow starting on monday going to a medium chance on tuesday because that storm system should push out of here by tuesday late morning. then wednesday there could be lingering showers from that second system that comes on through although that one looks to do more of a glancing blow. this one, the first one, coming closer now. that's why boston, worcester, you're now included in the winter storm watch. looking for some snow as well as some ocean-enhanced snow especially folks down in southeastern mass near the cape cod canal. you could see the greatest totals i think from this system. we have a one-two punch. the first one coming in overnight tonight into first thing tomorrow morning down here. then a second storm we're watching that will come through late tuesday afternoon into first thing wednesday. this one down to the south though, remember we talked about it. yesterday it wasn't even on radar. now look at it. very impressive.
mexico. it's starting to flip over to snow as that real heavy rain comes down in with the cold air out ahead of it, it turns into the snow. future cast for us. here's what happens. today we're dry. we're looking at sunshine but the clouds increase overnight. the snow is going to start flying. by 5:00 a.m. around the cape cod canal and then pulling south and east. there could be a little bit of mixing on the onset of this. i think it turns very quickly over to just plain old snow as temperatures start to cool down overnight. by 8:00 thoi in the morning, it's in boston. it's in worcester. and then by 11:00 or so, snow is flying everywhere tomorrow. and then it continues to come down at a pretty good clip. it may lighten a little bit for the ride home from work. you notice a couple of breaks in there. still heavy snow in worcester in boston going to make for a tricky commute into work but also on the way home from work. then it's really going to fill back in overnight monday into first thing tuesday. it looks like even tuesday morning's commute could be a snowy one.
from this, we're looking for 4-7 inches you see in this deeper blue color. that does include boston to worcester. lesser amounts outside of 495 and outside of worcester county. only about 2-4 inches for you folks. and then i do think there's going to be an area somewhere in here with the ocean-enhancement that could see seven inches or maybe even above that in some locations. it's not just the snow we're talking about wind and the potential for coastal flooding high. we have northeast winds ramping up tomorrow gusting to about 45 miles an hour over cape cod. and then we're watching the high tide coming in tomorrow at 11:00 a.m. and 11:00 p.m. this is the coastal flood watch from these areas so if you live by the beach you want to be careful and be aware of that. so this system going to come through and impact us all day pretty much monday into first thing tuesday. here's that second system coming in but notice it goes farther off shore so really i think it's more coastal snow and just light snow showers we're talking about through tuesday afternoon. on wednesday though there could
notice the temperatures right around the freezing mark so some of this snow could be again some heavy, wetter snow as temperatures are borderline freezing but then a cold blast of arctic air is going to come in. next weekend we're talking temperatures 10-15 degrees below where we should be. antoinette and doug. antoinette: we'll ramp up for it, danielle. thank you. the time is 5:17. a check of stories we're following right now. doug: in a special announcement read on state-run north korean t.v., the announcer says the country has put a satellite into orbit on a successful rocket launch. it's believed that technology could carry a missile targeting the u.s. this launch after north korea claimed it tested a hydrogen bomb last month. officials in south korea say they have agreed to begin talks with washington on a possible deployment of a missile defense system in south korea. antoinette: to taiwan where rescue missions are continuing this morning after yesterday's devastating earthquake. survivors still being pulled from the rubble as the death toll continues to rise. more than two dozen people were
quake. doug: chipotle is closing all of its chains to host a national employee meeting tomorrow. the company will thank employees for their work implementing chipotle's new food safety programs in their restaurants. they're also outlining steps that have been taken to make chipotle ingredients safer after a norovirus outbreak plagued the chain. more than 100 people were sickened at the cleveland circle location. >> now sportscenter 5 with bob halloran. bob: maybe the magic is back at the garden. not long ago both the bruins and celtics had losing records at home. the c's have won six in a row at home. last night the b's win with a brad marchand penalty shot in overtime. things looking better there. bruins and sabres for the second time in three nights. krejci takes the puck and gives it to pastrnak. erickson finishes, his first goal in nine games. wewelcome back to him. rookie sam reinhart's 14th
in overtime tied 1-1. they're skating 3 on 3. brad marchand with the break-away opportunity. nice of the refs to say that. a penalty shot. not the game-winner. announcer: mar shard with the game on his stick. overtime the penalty shot. he scores! bob: nine goals in nine games for marchand. the bruins win 2-1. they host the kings on tuesday. the celtics back in action playing the cousins and the 1:00. that's a look at sports. have a great day. doug: will do. thank you. take a look at this. pizza hut getting ready for today's big game with some bling. the national chain setting the cold standard of pizzas in honor of super bowl 50. they've created a pizza that is topped with 24karat gold. you heard me right. the limited edition pie is the new pizza topped with dollars 100 worth of edible 24-karat
golden anniversary. customers in seven states including rhode island can win one of the 50 pies. antoinette: really? i want a meat lovers pizza. i don't need gold. doug: pepperoni and mushrooms is fine with me. while we're talking food, we have some pretty stunning numbers. antoinette: just how many chicken wings will be gobbled up today? and a stomach-churning look at the other items in super bowl spreads across the country. and a new twist may complicate a tax scam alert. the changes the government is making, and how it could give thieves an edge. doug: we're heading outside at 20 minutes after 5:00 in the morning. our city cam. it's still dark and still kind of cold. danielle has your snowy forecast
i have asthma... ...one of many pieces in my life. so when my asthma symptoms kept coming back on my long-term control medicine, i talked to my doctor and found a missing piece in my asthma treatment. once-daily breo prevents asthma symptoms. breo is for adults with asthma not well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. breo won't replace a rescue inhaler for sudden breathing problems. breo opens up airways to help improve breathing for a full 24 hours. breo contains a type of medicine that increases the risk of death from asthma problems and may increase the risk of hospitalization in children and adolescents. breo is not for people whose asthma is well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. once your asthma is well controlled, your doctor will decide if you can stop breo and prescribe a different asthma control medicine,
danielle: welcome back. we're talking about a dry day today and actually a mild one. should be some melting out there as we see a lot of sunshine and temperatures warm into the 40's through the afternoon. now clouds increase later on this evening. the winds start to turn to the north and east overnight. from our approaching winter storm. it's a coastal system. and it's going to bring snow in here by 8:00 a.m. it is flying in boston, worcester points south and east. everybody is is seeing the snow through the day. then we watch another system come by, but notice the latest track swinging a little farther off shore.

reporter: apartment.com has jeff gold bloom sailing a high rise building to bump into more famous folks. >> is that george. reporter: talk owe bell is taking a different tack using mystery to advertise something new. >> don't know what it is. reporter: the ads star a green brick and avocados of mexico have aliens touring a museum. >> and this is a dress that caused the civil war. reporter: g.m.a. behind behind the scenes for the making getting a glimpse of the game day pressure. >> it's weighter sitting there. you watch the super bowl spot. you wait for ten seconds to see what twitter says. you're like, oh, gosh. we're good. reporter: in super bowl dollars, just a minute or so of ads is worth about $9 million of air time. that's because a 30-second spot during the game will cost advertisers up to $4.5 million. lawrence lis ter, abc news, los angeles.
here. americans are expected to eat a lot during the big game. how much? 1.3 billion chicken wings will be consumed. that's enough for every man, woman, and child in the u.s. to have 4 each. i'll have much more than that. 11.2 million pounds of potato chips. it's estimated 325 million gallons of beer will be consumed. and antacid sales are expected to rise 20 percent tomorrow. rightfully so if you get the extra hot wings. doug: or just take the preventive antacid. antoinette: bernie sanders takes his turn on "saturday night live." doug: his cameo appearance and why he says it was huge. and new details on that deadly crane collapse in new york city. the investigation and an update on the condition of the easton man hurt in that accident. antoinette: a live look outside this morning over the zakim bridge. we are getting your sunday

have any sign of infection, have had cancer, or if you develop any new skin growths. do not take stelara if you are allergic to stelara or any of its ingredients. alert your doctor of new or worsening problems including headaches, seizures, confusion and vision problems. these may be signs of a rare, potentially fatal brain condition. serious allergic reactions can occur. tell your doctor if you or anyone in your house needs or has recently received a vaccine. in a medical study, most stelara patients saw at least 75% clearer skin and the majority were rated as cleared or minimal at 12 weeks. stelara helps keep my skin clearer. ask your doctor about stelara

ocean-enhanced snow to come with because the winds will be coming out of the north and east tomorrow. here is system number one. this one will give us more of a direct shot. we're going to expect more snow monday into early tuesday and then this secondary system coming tuesday afternoon through wednesday morning will just kind of graze us bringing us snow showers. but right now we actually have mainly clear skies out there. a couple of flurries up through northern new england. that's really about it. temperaturewise, we're starting in the teens through orange, 20's in worcester. actually 31 degrees in boston. and today it's actually going to be a mild day as temperatures warm up into the low to even mid 40's with a lot of sunshine. the clouds will begin to increase though by 5:00 here from our approaching system. as we head through the overnight hours, that snow starts flying for the cape as well as the islands. it may start as a mix before turning over to all snow by 5:00 a.m. it gets into boston though by 8:00 in the morning. that morning commute will be messy. the ride home will be messy.

that's seriously better. (husband) we're out of 2%! i wonder what else could be better around here? (husband) i heard that. switching to better internet is now easier than ever. only fios has the fastest internet available, with uploads

thing or two. we are farmers. bum-pa-dum, bum-bum-bum-bum antoinette: just about 5:42 on your sunday morning. the i.r.s. back in business this morning. the agency has resumed processing 2015 federal tax returns following a hardware glitch. the failure had knocked some computers out of service. refund wait times do not seem to be affected. nine out of 10 taxpayers will receive their refunds within 21 days after their tax returns are received and accepted. but right now there's a new warning to taxpayers. officials saying scammers are working the phones to steal your money. doug: those suspicious calls and threats cost americans millions. the eyeopener's frank holland is here to explain how you can protect your money. frank: this morning, the i.r.s.
are threatened if they don't pay right away. >> we'll put you behind bars. frank: that's the sample of the type of call victims get, someone claiming to be from the i.r.s., demanding payment of back taxes. the i.r.s. telling everyone to be on high alert. the agency is also getting the word out that the i.r.s. generally makes first contact by letter, will never demand immediate payment, and does not threaten force. but starting next month, it may get harder to tell a scammer from a legitimiate tax call. a new law requires the i.r.s. to hire collection agencies to collect taxes, and those agencies may call taxpayers. steve weisman: in the future, when collectors are actually calling on behalf of the i.r.s, people will be more likely to fall for that scam. frank: since october 2013, 5,000 people have lost more than $26-million to telephone scammers. >> now your storm team 5 forecast with meteorologist danielle vollmar.
quiet day today as high pressure really dominates our weather, but we're watching two systems-- one to our south that's going to influence us and bring us some snow beginning tomorrow morning. and then another system out to the west that's going to develop another area of low pressure to bring us more snow beginning tuesday afternoon into wednesday. now this first system i think has the bigger punch though because its track will be closer to our shoreline. you can already see it has a lot of moisture as it moves in to parts of north carolina. this is going to track though up the eastern seaboard headed in our area. so today is dry. we'll see clouds increase later on this evening. and overnight the clouds really fill in. the rain or excuse me the snow starts flying around 5:00 a.m. it may actually start off as a mix or some rain on the cape and islands. but then we'll quickly transition to all snow. here. it is snowing from boston to worcester and points south and good clip.
it could be a mess he a one especially south and east of the mass pike. as we head towards 11:00 now, you folks up in new hampshire are involved. western mass, the berkshires. everybody seeing some snow. and it continues through the afternoon. may lighten up a bit on the ride home from work especially to the south but notice worcester, boston and even the cape still involved by 5:00. and then fills right back in overnight and continues for first thing tuesday morning. notice this is the back edge of it starting to dry out in connecticut by 5:00 tuesday morning. when all is said and done from this first system, we're to see 2-4 inches outside of 495 and outside of really the city of worcester but in this deeper blue area you see from boston to worcester, north shore included on this, 4-7 inches. the outer edge of the cape also included. nantucket as well as the vineyard. but then here in this little area here, i think because of ocean enhancement we could see search inches or more in some spots so be aware of that.
only snow trouble but we're talking about the potential for strong, tbufty winds from this storm. that could lead to even coastal flooding especially during high tide and of course some commute problems. the wind gusts will be in excess of 45 miles an hour on the cape and islands. and even maybe cape ann. inside of that we're talking 30-mile-per-hour wind gusts pretty much all day long tomorrow. the other thing is that wind is going to pile up the water. tides are astronomically high so we're watching that 11:00 a.m. high tide. could see pockets of minor coastal flooding from this system. so here's the first one. it comes in and then it moves out of here by tuesday morning. and then this second low pressure system forms off the back end, but notice its track is farther off shore so that throws some snow, some coastal snow, that is, for tuesday night into first thing wednesday. but it looks like this track may actually miss us or at least parts of western mass as well as new hampshire. so here we go. i'm showing you future cast one more time. here comes that area of low pressure.
support snow but it's a weaker system tracking farther to the east. not talking about as heavy as accumulation as we're talking about for tomorrow. behind that though we turn very cold by next weekend as an arctic blast moves in. doug and antoinette. antoinette: danielle, thank you. just about 5:47. here are some of the stories we're following right now. doug: somali officials confirming it was a bomb that blew a hole in a jetliner forced to make an emergency landing on tuesday. somalia's transport minister announced yesterday that investigators suspect a suicide bomber with ties to al-shabab extremists may have tried to set off the explosive. one person was killed. six people have been arrested in connection with the the blast. the investigation is continuing. antoinette: tragedy in austria. police say five skiers were killed after being buried in what's being described as a massive avalanche. the victims were all visiting from the czech republic. investigators say 17 were caught in the avalanche; two others

were punked by "punxsutawney phil" and they issued this warrant for the groundog. the rodent predicted an early spring this year . that, of course, does not seem to be the case. antoinette: danielle is backing up the police on this. danielle: i told you guys. i do not like that road ept. he's not a forecast caster. he's a rodent. if you look behind me, you see winter is not over, folks. in fact, we have snow chances each and every day this week. monday, tuesday, wednesday. the highest chance coming on monday from that approaching storm system. i do want to show you this for today though. we do have a dry forecast in store. we should melt some of that snow from friday into the mid 40's. lots of sun shine and clouds increase later tonight from storm system number one, and then we watch storm system number two. that one looks a little weaker and a little farther off shore. number one is our biggest
