>> to the radar and a winter blast on our door step tonight a blizzard warning will soon go into effect for parts of massachusetts. some spots could see a foot of snow. good evening. >> boston public schools are closed tomorrow and many more listed at the bottom of your screen. we begin with the weather center tonight and harvey leonard. >> want to show you where the blizzard warning is in effect along the waters of the south shore, southeastern massachusetts, and the cape, and the islands. 4:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. because this is the area that is going to get the combination of the heaviest burst of snow when this moves in as well as the strongest winds. stuss tained 30 to 40 malice an hour there could be gusts especially on the cape it could be 60 miles an hour. risk of power outages all over again and tree issues. for the rest of eastern massachusetts it is a winter
inches or more of snow. further back, slightly less snow amounts so a winter weather advisory in this region. now, here's the deal. if you look closely on satellite imagery, we have a very, very potent ocean storm. but the track of the storm is going to be such that most times would not be a big player for us but it is such a large circulation and kind of interacting with high pressure eastern canada that the western fringe is going to get into our area. timeline about 5:00 a.m. almost to boston so south shore, southeastern mass, the cape is under way. by 7:00 in the morning it's a little to the north of boston and quickly going north and west after that. it is a snowy day with snow continuing well into the night but down to scattered flurries by early tuesday. my best estimate on snowfall amounts would be around cape ann as well as the south shore, southeastern mass, and part of more. boston 6 to 10. outside of 495, 3 to 6 inches of snow is likely.
pick up out of the northeast. these are the potential gusts we'll see. the temperature has been flying up because of the ocean wind. as the wind becomes more north-northeast tomorrow look what's going to happen with the temperature. it is going to start dropping and will drop steadily through the day right on into the evening. it is going to be snow even if it begins as rain. >> take a live look at the zakim bunker hill bridge. the timing on the storm will be tough on commuters. mike? >> a real tricky deal tomorrow morning. for the commuter impact if you're inbound from the north if you leave very early in the morning the impact is low. between the 7:00 to 10:00 a.m. period it is going to be a problem and even for the evening commute as well. let's travel out to the west. if you're traveling from worcester through framingham toward boston for the early part of the commute a medium impact but, boy, it ramps up quickly during the morning commute and will be a problem
we'll still have a high impact storm as we talk about the 6:00 p.m. commute. through the south shore you see as you start coming up through the cape where the storm is coming from. unless you're going to be driving almost to the middle of the night you'll be running into problems. the early and late commute very high impact and even toward evening still a very high impact. now along the coast we're keeping a close eye on it. we have two high tides tomorrow, one in the morning, one late in the evening around 11:00. there as surge out there, waves 10 to 14 feet, but the real issue is only going to be minor to moderate coastal flooding during the high tide and the areas most affected also toward nantucket. up through the north shore a coastal flood individuals through boston. once you go south of boston we start to talk about this. a coastal flood warning. from hall down through plymouth and through the cape we have the coastal flood warning which is going to be centered around the 11:00 a.m. high tide. one we'll be watching but
seen out of some storms in the past. >> it's taken two full days to recover from friday's heavy, wet snow. some people are just getting their power back today. we'll go live to bridgewater where the new storm will bring new challenges. >> some people here have only had power back for a few hours. now they wait and see what tomorrow will bring. the trucks are rolling in ahead of monday's impending storm. >> power outages are at the top of our concerns. >> throughout the boston area especially south officials are preparing for a round two hit of heavy, wet snow. >> we expect power outages will occur. >> in brockton where we found national grid crews restoring the last bit of power cut off by friday's storm the state of emergency is set to take effect at 5:00 a.m. monday. >> we certainly had a lot of tree limbs coming down and taking wires with them. >> in the canton area where outages were just a symptom of what led to tragedy --.
>> crews from as far away as quebec have been working around the clock to remove trees from power lines. evidence of why there is concern here tonight is not hard to find. north main street in sharon, this tree came down in friday's storm. you see branches still dangling from the power lines. 49 crews we met up with canton were sent to return home sunday but a familiar call -- >> we're asking national grid to keep all the crews here so they can go right back to work tomorrow morning when this storm hits. >> they'll be staying a bit longer. >> they told us we might be stand by a for a little while. >> what do you think about that? >> it's okay. >> more than 500 state troopers will be on the roadways tomorrow. they're asking you to stay off of them and let them do their jobs. they are also asking you to report any downed trees or power lines. newscenter 5. >> potential blizzard conditions will have emergency crews on alert. our todd kazakiewich is live in
rough one out there. >> 12 hours from now we could be seeing blizzard like conditions here and making matters worse is that those conditions could coincide with high tides, higher thap normal. and all of that is happening just before 11:00 a.m. tonight scituate town plow trucks are fueled up and ready to roll. the salt pile was depleted by friday's snowstorm but it is still big enough to tackle the storm arriving monday. a storm that could bring blizzard conditions including minor coastal flooding. >> our concern now for the storm is certainly the tide cycle tomorrow and what the trees are already weakened from the previous storm. >> the storm coming in tomorrow is not expected to bring conditions strong enough to threaten the scituate sea wall or the historic lighthouse. sunday was a mild day on the south shore. most of the mess from friday has been cleaned up. power has been restored. but the storm monday will
>> we just ask residents treat all, down lines as live. >> there will be more power outages tomorrow. no doubt about that. captain monahan offered an important reminder to home owners with generators. make sure that the generator is properly ventilated to ensure no issues with carbon monoxide poisoning. reporting live in scituate, todd kazakiewich, wcvb newscenter 5. >> we will have extended storm coverage all day tomorrow starting with the eye opener at 4:30 a.m. we'll have up to the minute forecasts. you can always turn to our wcvb mobile app. >> right now a teenager is hospitalized after high levels of carbon monoxide filled a hamilton home. investigators say something was wrong with the fire place in the bridge street home. a 15-year-old was taken to beverly hospital as a precaution. >> commitment 2016 and the
tuesday's primary is looming very large. >> we begin tonight with the democrats after a virtual tie in iowa. hillary clinton and bernie sanders are both looking to make a statement. julie? >> both candidates now have less than two full days to win support here in new hampshire ahead of the first in the nation primary. even so, hillary clinton spent most of today, some 700 miles away from new hampshire. >> i'm really glad i went. obviously it was tough taking any hours away from new hampshire. >> hillary clinton returned to manchester tonight after a campaign detour to michigan. clinton answered the call of flint's mayor to bring attention to a crisis she describes as immoral. >> i am here because for nearly two years flint's water was poisoned. >> even though the clock is ticking ahead of the first in the nation primary political analysts say candidates must seize the opportunities to reach voters elsewhere.
february the shortest month of the year there is a major primary or caucus so you have to be able to walk and chew gum at the same time. you have to look at the other states. >> former president bill clinton did campaign on his wife's behalf today and when she returned she admitted she has an uphill climb. >> i'm asking people to really consider that the job interview, who is ready to do the job on day one? who can be president and commander-in-chief? who has the most vetted, tested plan? >> democratic front-runner bernie sanders may have a strong lead in primary polls, but he told voters in fort smith tuesday's results are going to come down to who shows up. >> to bring about the changes that the american people want, we need a political revolution. >> now, new hampshire is a same day registration state, which means while candidates may be running out of time to sway those undecided voters they have until the last minute to
live in manchester, new hampshire, wcvb, newscenter 5. >> for the republicans it is the night after their big debate. for some candidates an opportunity to build momentum. for others a chance to move beyond it. >> thank you, sir. i enjoyed the debate last night. >> a tamer tone today on the trail. >> the hundred miles breakfast with you. >> wow. >> following a fiery night on the gop debate stage. >> stand by those words? fpblets let me talk. quiet. >> out of time. >> front-runner donald trump moving up even more in the polls today and standing by some of his most controversial stances. >> water boarding immediately is okay and if we can get much worse that's okay too. >> new jersey governor chris christie is talking about his debate takedown of marco rubio calling the florida senator's speeches rehearsed and over repeated. >> the race is so unsettled now. you can't trust senator rubio to be the candidate of this party. >> mocked by these robots while campaigning but he is not backing down.
and i'm going to keep saying it because it is true. >> senator ted cruz is coming out against women being made to register for the military draft which some of his rivals indicated they would support. >> the idea we would draft our daughters to forcibly bring them into the military and put them in close combat, i think, is wrong. it is immoral. if i am president, we ain't doing it. >> jeb bush for his part has rolled out a new ad featuring his brother former president george w. bush. the poll showed trump ahead in new hampshire but a four way battle for second between kasich, rubio, bush, and cruz. newscenter 5 is your source for complete primary night coverage. our team of reporters and analysts will have the candidates covered as the results come in. our coverage starts tuesday at 4:30 p.m. and we'll take you all the way to midnight. you can watch live on the wcvb mobile app. >> he didn't get to put on the pads but pats quarterback tom brady did make an appearance at

there are those who say we cannot defeat a corrupt political system but i believe we need to lift our vision and look to the american horizon. to a nation where every child can not only dream of going to college, but attend one. where quality healthcare will be a birthright of every citizen. where a good job is not a wish, but a reality. where women receive equal pay and a living wage is paid to all. t an america where after a lifetime of labor, t there is time for rest and grandchildren. r a nation that defends our people and our values, r
so much of that burden alone. i know p if we listen to our conscience and not to the pundits and the naysayers. i'm bernie sanders. i approve this message, and i ask for your vote. >> in a matter of hours we'll be hit with another storm to commute. blizzard warning in effect for plymouth county, the cape, and the islands. momentarily. >> caught on camera a stunning explosion on a london bridge. a movie stunt that is now getting mixed reviews. this happened on a quiet sunday morning and in a city that has known the trauma of terror attacks on buses it brought back some chilling memories.
crossing the bridge suddenly bursting into flames. debris flying into the air. >> oh, my gosh. >> the scene so realistic, so terrifying, many didn't know what was happening. >> it was quite a drama. >> sophie was at a nearby morning. >> i really thought what i was looking at was possibly a major event. >> the explosion just a stunt for action star jackie chan's new film "the foreigner." nigel huddlestone catching it on camera. clearly, aware it was staged. the production team sent out this flyer alerting the public. the explosion is controlled. but not everyone was informed. bringing back memories of the other time a london bus was targeted. the deadly terror attacks in the summer of 2005. some finding the similarity
city leaders reassured the public it was just a stunt but for some the explanation fell short. >> new york's mayor is putting into place new crane safety precautions following the deadly crash in new york city friday. one person died and three others including a local easton man were injured. there will be new restrictions on the cranes during windy conditions and fines will be double if crews fail to safeguard equipment. the city is still investigating how the accident happened. a funeral was held today for harvard grad david wichs who was crushed by the crane while walking down the street on friday. he was reportedly a math wiz who worked on wall street. >> well, a day out turns to disaster for wisconsin festival goers. >> they thought a lake was a good place to park their car. probably typically is. people who attend the festival say they park on the frozen lake every year but this year has been warmer than usual. turns out the ice gave way, 15 vehicles plunged right into the chilly water. emergency crews crawled on to the thin ice to save what they
>> all within arm's reach of one another, a lot of weight for 10 inches of ice. >> the minute you drive a vehicle on the ice you are rolling the dice. >> 10 cars total but the good news is no one was hurt. >> always a good reminder no matter how much snow is out there, always be careful. >> park on pavement. >> even walking on the ice. harvey, i know we have another storm that's coming in after friday's mess. >> remember two weekends ago when we were on the edge and new york city got buried and philly and washington and baltimore? from marshfield south that did qualify as a blizzard and now we have blizzard warnings for the same exact area. and what qualifies as the blizzard, we'll see if it makes it. you need the visibility to be a quarter mile or less for three hours in a row with frequent wind gusts over 35 miles an hour. that will happen in falling, blowing, or drifting snow or a combination of all three of those. all right?
in terms of blizzard conditions. here's where the blizzard warning is, that exact area where the snow will be heaviest and the combination of wind with the snow will give the most severe conditions. we have a winter storm warning for just about all of eastern mass. once you get east of worcester or worcester east, 495 east. still a winter weather advisory beyond that for several inches of snow and very slippery going. especially the coastal flood warning. remember high tide is around 11:00 a.m. tomorrow. minor with pockets of moderate coastal flooding. as mike alluded to it is a coastal flood advisory north of boston but it is a coastal flood warning south of boston where the winds will be stronger, the wave action will be stronger as well. and again, just like late last snowstorm. today was incredibly gorgeous. 44 in boston and it is still mild now. the reason it's mild now is because the wind is off the water at 21 miles an hour. and the ocean water temperature is in the low 40's. you might say, hey. storm.
going to go from east to northeast and northeast to north-northeast. if we look in that direction there is cold air up there. just above portsmouth it drops off quickly from portland all the way up to bangor where it's in the teens. single digits to the north of that. 20 in burlington, vermont. that's going to get drawn southward as the storm makes its approach. now, it might begin briefly as rain on the cape before it flips to snow. by 4:00 a.m. boston is down to 34. by 7:00 a.m. it's down to 32. look what happens. it keeps falling during the day and during the storm. but being near 32 it's going to be a heavy, wetter, pastier snow on the cape with the most powerful winds so they are at the greatest risk of additional power outages from the storm. notice the temperatures staying cold once we get into the storm and beyond for the next several days after that. now the storm, itself. look at that. looks like an eye. it's going to take a track far away from us but is a very large circulation so we're going to get into it. as it interacts with a cold high to the north so we'll get
significant snow beginning early tomorrow through the day into tomorrow night. another storm on tuesday looks like it'll stay south of us so i don't worry about that but actually another one not too potent may give us a few inches of snow tuesday night, wednesday or wednesday night time frame. the biggest threat is what happens tomorrow. about 5:00 a.m. getting close to boston. leading edge. notice it's already gone over to snow on the cape. then it starts to budge north but notice eastern mass, southeastern mass is in the heaviest bands the longest period of time. figure to get the most snow. right through the commute and even well into tomorrow night before tapers off very late at night. and even along cape ann on the south shore there may still be some ocean effect flurries lingering into tuesday. but the significant accumulation would be over. want to zoom in our areas north and west of 495. it looks like three to six inches of snow. once you get inside 495 to boston anywhere from 6 to 10, higher amounts should be closer to the coast. somewhat lighter amounts further north and west.
once you get around the blue hill area, broxton, to then, all the way down to maybe falmouth could be 10 inches or pockets of more because as the cold air passes over the warm water it may enhance the snowfall. there could be a few bands significantly higher than that. 6 to 10 for the outer cape. 4 to 9 for nantucket. one thing about the wind coming out of the northeast it'll be picking up. these are the gusts that will be achieved. most likely 50 to 60 or higher in the blizzard warning area. then bitter cold is going to arrive for the end of the week and next weekend. there's your next seven days. the focus is all on tomorrow and tomorrow night. there could be some lonely snowflakes for the primary in new hampshire but not a snowstorm that day but a few inches of snow could occur tuesday night, wednesday, or wednesday night. we'll probably be adjusting the temperatures down ward for next weekend as it does look like the bitter cold air is coming in. we've of course been focusing on the storm coming up into tomorrow. stay safe and they'll take you
>> new at 11:00 gas prices are down again. >> we haven't seen prices this low in seven years. the lundberg survey finds the national average $1.82 per gallon, an eight cent drop over the past two weeks. the report finds that crude oil prices
may be finding their bottom soon. so we'll expect prices to drop not much further. >> sports center 5 with mike lynch. >> if you believe that defense wins championships this one was for you. now cam newton knows what tom brady felt like during the a.f.c. title game.
broncos the super bowl title, 24-10 the final. from santa clara, california lady gaga kicked things off with a national anthem in one of the most memorable renditions of the anthem at a super bowl game. von miller was m.v.p. cam newton touchdown. 10-0, denver broncos. the story of the day. the former patriot had a number of personal foul penalties called on him and one time set up the panthers for a one-yard plunge here which made it a three-point game. 16-10 denver in the fourth quarter. watch the pressure again. von miller coming from the outside. knocks the ball away from cam newton. cam newton doesn't dive on the ball. ball gets down to the 4 yard line and then after pass interference penalty in the end zone they punched it into the end zone making it 22-10. they decide to go for two.
i would have won $500. that's the way the cookie crumbles i guess. 24-10 is the final. is this peyton's last wrode rohde yo? he won't commit after the game. before the game tom brady was introduced. listen. from super bowls 36, 38, and 49 for the new england patriots, tom brady! >> look behind him and see all the orange jerseys. they are broncos fans and they don't like tom brady. they don't like anybody who doesn't play for the broncos. celtics at the garden today tough. 25 from avery bradley. he had a dozen points in the first quarter alone. celtics scored 46 in the first quarter. 74 points by halftime as isiah thomas had 22 points and nine assists. rondo back at the garden, triple double for him.
15 assists. sacramento cut the deficit to six points with 8:30 to go but the celtics went on a 15-6 run including two threes by avery bradley. celtics have their track shoes on and scored 33 in the first quarter and win 128-119. they go to milwaukee to play the bucks on wednesday night. much more on the super bowl. the voice of the bruins will join us. and bubble bob. if you don't know what that is or who that is we'll have it for you. >> that's a tease. thanks, mike. harvey and mike wankum coming up.
there are those who say we cannot defeat a corrupt political system and fix a rigged economy. but i believe we need to lift our vision above the obstacles in place v and look to the american horizon. to a nation where every child can not only dream of going to college, but attend one. where quality healthcare will be a birthright of every citizen. where a good job is not a wish, but a reality. where women receive equal pay and a living wage is paid to all. t an america where after a lifetime of labor, t there is time for rest and grandchildren. r a nation that defends our people and our values, r but no longer carries so much
of that burden alone. v i know we can create that america p if we listen to our conscience and our hearts r and not to the pundits and the naysayers. i'm bernie sanders.
and i ask for your vote. i do everything on the internet. but, it's kind of slow. my friends say i should get fios because it's the fastest. i just downloaded 600
photos in 60 seconds. that's seriously better. (husband) we're out of 2%! i wonder what else could be better around here?

take it away. >> i just want to show you that though it is clear in boston the edge of the storm is now showing on our doppler radar rain. almost to nantucket where it is currently 42 degrees. it may start as
rain, maybe very briefly on the cape but then flip over. cold air will get drawn down from northern new england. those are the amounts expected. highest in eastern mass. 6 to 10 even in boston and the highest amounts of all likely to be around the southshore and cape ann. the blizzard warning, mike. >> we'll keep a close eye on high tides tomorrow morning by 11:00 a.m. right now minor with perhaps pockets of minor flooding but not a big event. just in case. the wave action will come up winds. >> and starts as west snow. >> thank you very much.
