6:18 am
about how it is better to get a head start from this because it will continue throughout the commute you. . >> shiri: yeah, not waiting until 10 a.m. and thing will get better. things will get worse. snow will win this one out. weed out the rain. on top of that we will watch out for winds because gusts at 35 miles per hour with this very dense type of snow can create power outages and downed tree and limbs. the big picture is we have this disturbance that will ride along that front, and that means that we will actually see things get more intense and amplified during the morning hours and eventually ease up this afternoon. this cold air is eventually calling that switch out for everybody. zoom in here and take a closer look and we have got that rain snow line across the south sore over to somerset. heavier snow in taunton, rehoboth, even where we have some of of the shade.
6:19 am
some of the -- with the rain. we have some of our first snow reports coming in right now. a snow report in lunenberg of an inch. but we can peek outside and we can see we have snow building up. waiting for some official reports. you can send them to us facebook and twitter. send them to me and sara. let's take a look at the timeline for this whole thing. through 7:00, the rain snow line from plymouth to the new bedford area, south of that although heavy rain, don't be surprised to see snowflakes mix on this. 7 a.m. heavy snow, eastern mass 7 a.m. heavy snow, eastern mass, eastern mass, southern new hampshire. take you to the next timeframe 9:00, the rain snow line down to the cape dealing with heavy rain if that location. the heavy rain can pull down snow and cooler temperatures as well. noontime is next. noontime temperatures will continue to drop and hold steady in the lower 30s. heavy snow at noontime and eventually by 3 p.m. which is
6:20 am
got things that are easing up. that means boston, snowfall rates will be lightening. wine wining down out toward worcester. still snowing on the cape and check out what happens by 6 p.m. by 6 p.m., the snow over the kawrp and next slide will show we are still going with 4 to 8 inches around the boston area, south shore, north shore. and as you hit new hampshire 1 to 4 and the cape, mixing right now 1 to 3. the northern fridge of that will watch for any adjustment that we will have to make. right now let's get you over to sarah wroblewski because she has the latest often what you guys are saying. >> sarah: a lot of folks trying to chime in. starting to wake up. starting to see the conditions out there. we got this report saying still rain in haverhill right now, but we are seeing the changeover to snow just started in dorchester and not only are we getting reports but getting questions. hard to see and i will read it for you. is the surface temperature of the ground going to reduce the amount of snow because it is not frozen. very good question.
6:21 am
days. the last few days temperatures in the 50s. average high, 37. yes, when that snow first initially comes down because temperatures are in the 30s, it is going to allow for some melting to occur, but as it comes down steady and heavy, we will see some accumulation and will come down at a pretty good clip. shiri was showing that as temperatures above freezing and down in the 40s across the cape down in the 40s across the cape. day planner, what you can anticipate throughout the day today. those temperatures falling. the mildest conditions likely happening right now. watch and see temperatures fall throughout the day as those winds will pick up, create low visibility with the transition all to snow. by the afternoon, that snow is tapering, and by the evening hours, will start to see some improvement. if you have plans, should be okay, should be dry i should say and notice the winds may be gusting, gusting as high as 25 to 35 miles per hour. notice by the afternoon, they are coming out of the northwest colder air. any areas of wet conditions, some slush likely going to freeze overnight as
6:22 am
into the teens and 20s. but tomorrow, we get those temperatures right back up into the upper 30s and by sunday, into the lower 40s as we will have high pressure in control. looks fairly dry and could see a few flurries, a few snow showers with the weakening front coming through northern new england over the weekend. as we take a look at the bigger picture, we will be watching two systems as we head into next week. one area low pressure to our south and another system pushing through the great lakes by sunday is where we will be the interaction of these two systems that will bring us the risk of some potential snow as we head into early next week. that seven-day forecast, today is the day pretty snowy and wet at times and dry out throughout weekend and early next week, our best chance i think of seeing one system brushing us will be on tuesday with those temperatures in the 30s and colder weather will surely follow by late week. there is the look at your latest forecast. >> gene: hello there. 6:22 this morning. a fan bought thousands of dollars of tickets for the super bowl received an empty
