it is going to be slick. temperatures in the teens in a lot of spots. we have a dry and seasonable weekend though after we get done this morning. the snow returns only after monday. an unsettled week looks to be ahead. i'm going to have the 7 day straight ahead. must round up the final snow reports for you. the worcester airport 12.5. that was the highest total we could round up. boylston had 11. quincy had 9. plymouth as well. norwood, 8 and a half a little better. and boston logan airport, 6.8 inches when it was all said and done off the snowboard there. snow this year, we're still running a little shy. 8 inches below normal in normal. 13.6 below normal in worcester. where the official records are kept. keep in mind, with a storm like yesterday, 6, 12 inch totals just one event can take us right back to even. even though we're e.r. off to a slow start with a relatively dry
6:19 am
february, we're starting to pick back up and high gear with snow chances on the way. let's talk right now, currently we're at 13 in norwood. you can see why the icy conditions are going to be a concern. good thing is there's no wind, skies are clear, but that's a recipe for cold numbers this morning. we'll have some sun this morning. and by 10 in the morning, 33 degrees, seeing some melting, especially with the sun hitting the black asphalt. the asphalt absorbs the heat more readily. so the roads may improve a little quicker than the air temperature climbing above freezing. either way, caution through 10:00 a.m. trying to get near 40 degrees. check in with boston here, 25. so going to see those milder conditions as you get closer to the water. temperatures here climbing up above freezing just after 10 in the morning and topping out there in the upper 30s. right there around the boston area today. now let's take a look at future cast. we do have a couple of flurries

for the ski resorts northern vermont, new hampshire. we stay dry. we stay dry on sunday as well. just passing high clouds. then we're watching two storms, ocean storms coming up the outer banks, looks like it's going to go pretty far off to the east. accumulating snow with it, but not a direct hit. then we have the next storm coming out of the great lakes. this one is likely going to induce the surface circumstance could you larngs down here that could impact us on tuesday. so we've got a couple of chances here to get accumulating snow. let me show you the european model very conservative here, only half an inch to an inch. are the other model much more aggressive, 5 to 9 inches in the similar location. so the take away is, areas south of boston and eastward, better chance of accumulating sun, just
6:21 am
saturday and sunday weekend always in view. looking pretty good. 45 today, 42 tomorrow ahead of that system. and then the seven-day forecast. monday, a few inches of snow likely. tuesday, i think a better chance overall for accumulating snows. wednesday, things kind of taper down. but we're going to leave at least an isolated mention of a snow shower or two. even on thursday and friday, you see that unsettled pattern with cold temperatures. winter has its grip. back to you. >> heather: all right. jason. well, all morning long we've been keeping tabs on the power outages and crews working to restore power to thousands of people who remain in the dark this morning. but we can tell you in the past 15 minutes, those numbers have actually climbed. with he can tell you now more than 47,000 people are without power. that's the combined number for all of the major utility companies in the region. we'll keep tabs for you all morning long and keep you posted on their progress. >> blair: those outages all thanks to situations like this right here.

west newton at 6.5. so we are finished up here for the weekend. but by monday, there's a new chance for snow beginning to develop. so we're trying to get caught up here. let me show you the average season snowfall as it works out over time. typically we get 9 in december. 13 in january. we come up way short for the front end of the season. but here in february now, beginning to pick up steam, we've had more than half of our monthly snowfall at logan airport at just one event. you can see how we could get back to even pretty quickly with a couple of coastal storms coming by. that chance coming up this week. let's start out with icy roads, though. look at the teens we're seeing this morning. right now, lawyer wednesday at 15 degrees. the good news is, there's not much wind, but we have the clear skies and those icy conditions early on. due to all of the refreezing of the very wet heavy snow that we've had. there will be some sun today. that will help temperatures come
6:47 am
keep in mind, the black roads absorb heat more readily. that should allow roads to improve more rapidly than about 10:00 a.m. i want everyone to be extra careful, the driveways and sidewalks that haven't been treated yet. 15 right now in plymouth with the fresh snow packed. clear skies, temperatures here coming up with freezing there, taurpd noontime and topping out in the upper 30s. most spots this afternoon. boston, 35 to 39. your afternoon high temperatures, winds out of the southwest, 10 to 15. not, particularly strong. but a few gusts this afternoon. so be careful if you're out plowing or scraping up the snow or playing. there still could be some tree limb issues. we do have an unsettled pattern upon us. coming up by sunday night, there's a slight chance of precipitation breaking out. but it's really monday, tuesday, and even lingering into wednesday here, with a couple of shots at some low pressure tracking by to help bring a snow chance back into southern new england again.
