has fallen so far, on cape cod where a blanket of 7-10 inches of snow is what is on the ground. everywhere. the very heavy snow is over but there are still bands. this will stick around well into the night. what we are going to see is the snow covering the entire region. even by 9:00 and by 11:00. by 11:00, it is finally weakening. when it is done, and we are left with snow showers for tomorrow, we will have this amount of snow. 8-12 inches along the cape and 5-9 inches in the boston area, somewhat less further to the north and west. there is also the cold to talk about. maria: we will be waiting for that. the storm moving in right as an astronomically high tide hit in plymouth.

7:02 pm

7:04 pm
tide this morning, combined with the high winds, would lead to flooding and downed power lines. that didn' t happen. the next high tide is just after 11:00 tonight and by that time, the worst of the storm will have passed. ed: brockton trying to keep ahead of the snow. as all communities are trying to do. driving is always tricky. the city has 180 pieces of snow removal equipment making the rounds. brockton will remain in snow emergency at least through overnight. that means no street parking, police are aggressively towing. maria: boston is missing the brunt but it is still on track to get five inches. kids, you had a snow day today but he will have school tomorrow. ed : delivering the bad news already. the wind gusts are still going.
7:05 pm

ed: it is the eve of new s first in the nation primary. new at 7:00, we' re getting our first look at the final wmur/cnn poll before the vote. the one-time democratic underdog, bernie sanders, remains a heavy favorite with 61% support to hillary clinton' s 35%. despite these numbers, a sizable pool of democrats in this poll have yet to settle, 36% are still undecided. now to the republican side. heads into the primary election the clear favorite on the republican side, and that' s the closest thing you' ll find to a sure thing. marco rubio, ted cruz, and john kasich round out the top 4. the bottom tier of jeb bush, carly fiorina, chris christie, and ben carson are all bunched together within the poll' s margin of error. but there are even more undecideds here 54% of likely republican voters are still on the fence. marie: let' s talk to our analyst, here we go maryanne marsh for the democrats. and pat griffin for the republicans.
7:07 pm

7:08 pm
because one of the governors will do well and will go to south carolina. so it is anybody' s guess. i think it could go anyway. do not believe any of the polls because right now it is like trying to catch a snowflake. >> we were talking about that the other day. we see bernie sanders who is dominant and hillary clinton is slightly closing the gap. does she leave new hampshire being second and still claim victory? >> we will see. they are expecting a record turnout tomorrow, 70%. the bigger the turnout, the better for bernie sanders and donald trump. we will see if they can close that gap. i retreated today all the polls from 2008 and they all were wrong. so you have to wait and see. for hillary clinton, the smaller

maria: 80% of law enforcement and public safety officers in massachusetts wear blackinton badges. and next time you' re flying at any airport in the u.s. check out the tsa badges. all of them are made right here in massachusetts. ed: are they really? harvey, i would imagine that 80% of the viewing area is getting hit by snow. harvey: it is snowing everywhere but the warning has finally been taken down. but we do have a winter weather advisory. we are talk about another 1-3 inches of snow until midnight. all right, that is the deal. here is what i want to show you. we do qualify for part of our area as a blizzard because we get wind gusts above 35 miles for our frequently with snow and blowing snow and drifting snow and that is what happened for three hours or more in nantucket
7:17 pm
that is pretty much where the blizzard warning was. the visibility is still down the coast there is still light snow that is a cumulative. it is still cold and it is a light and dry powdery kind of snow. the wind gusts are slowly coming down along the coast and the cape. that is almost at 30 miles per hour. even with that, the wind chills are in the single digits. some late reports into us so let us share that. along the north shore, we have 3.5" is. natick at four inches. we have three or so inches in souks very. and about three inches in surely. boston logan airport, 4.7 inches. it increases as you go through the south shore. six in south plymouth and most of the cape is up around 7-10
7:18 pm
storm, it almost looks like a hurricane. general lower visibility with region. in the cold and fluffy snow that we are getting, it can still pile up. that will go on between now and midnight before it comes to an end. it is study is along the north shore and south shore. here you can see we get to just past midnight. most of it is done. this misses so we don' t have to worry about the second storm. these should be the final amounts. 5-9 inches in boston. in the cape ann, lesser amounts but i have to let you know that the incredible bitter cold will move in this weekend. it will be the coldest we have seen so far and even boston could be below zero early sunday
7:19 pm
that would be pretty cold stuff indeed. so there is the deal. if we get more snow showers, i don' t expect big accumulations until after midnight. >> now, sportscenter 5 one minute drill. >> super bowl 50 is history and it may have included the end of an historic run by one of the class acts in all of sports, peyton manning. #18 has been non-commital each time he' s been asked if this is it? and if it was his last rodeo he went out bustin broncos and punching doggies. t yesterday' t fallacy. in mid november out with plantar facitis his season and career were on life support he came off the bench to beat san diego and lead the offense to post season wins over pittsburgh, the patriots and the mighty panthers. he is the oldest quarterback to win a super bowl and the only starting quarterback to win a

he is polite and well mannered and still says yes ma' am and no server. when he came into the nfl in 1988 -- in 1990 eight, his colts won three games and the next season they were peyton manning 13. doesn' t need to throw for 400 yards and 4 touchdowns to be a leader. denver was in danger of missing the playoffs heading into the final weekend of the regular season until manning took off his cape and his body language to load, follow me, men. peyton manning is a winner, not just because he has two super titles, what fueled his success is that he always placed we well before me. a skill to many national football league quarterbacks never master. including the one who lost yesterday. >> i can think of one who comes to mind. that was nice to say. >> tom brady heard it from the bronco fans yesterday. maria: we didn' t.

7:23 pm
after coming to the aid of a woman in distress officer keith perry discovered that she didn' t have a place to live and had not eaten in quite some time. so he bought her some groceries and helped her get a hotel room to ride out the snow storm. the seekonk police department says perry epitomizes the meaning of public service. that is personal public service. maria: i love that. he didn' t have to do that. ed: a look at the stories will be following for you all night long when we come back. maria: and remember, we want to know your good news. send us your video and pictures of people making a difference and doing good in your community. share them on the wcvb facebook page. or email them to ulocal at
