9:01 am
until about 3:00 this afternoon, out into the worcester area, you could see the shades lightning up and that's where showers are starting to dwindle toward boston and expecting that around 4:00 this afternoon, snow will come to an end and this evening for the cape, between six and 7:00 p.m. and cape two to four inches of snow expected, two to four in parts of southern new hampshire and closer to the close down to the north shore, boston, south shore central massachusetts and that's our jackpot, pretty big jackpot at four to eight inches and working snow reports so far. let's get you over to sarah wroblewski though because you have a close eye on visibility which is really struggling. >> sarah: with rain and snow accommodating, tricky travel from worcester to bedford to beverly, less than quarter of mile, so take it easy because we will continued to see the visibility rates reduced as the winds do pick up, gusting over 20 bedford to worcester, over 30, now 45 on nantucket. so really windy conditions,
9:02 am
outages isolated as the heavy wet snow on the branches may cause some problems out there, but as shiri was mentioning the rain-snow line collapsing toward the coast, so hour-by-hour in places like hyannis with rain and snow mixing in expect to see the see the snow midday and see snow lingering through the evening but places like boston, you will see improvement as we head into the evening hours, but the temperatures, they will be dropping, talk more about that, plus show you some of your viewer reports coming up. let's get check of traffic now with julie. >> julie: visibility means very bad for the commute and troublesome, 128 accident in burlington and approach tobin bridge with accident there. pike visibility very low and these are the traffic cameras i monitor for you every morning as you can see really on the gas -- one in the bottom left-hand corner with the expressway,
