the storms. chief meteorologist kevin lemanowicz watching it for us, kevin, you talk about the snow moving in and that's been happening. >> kevin: looking at snow pushing in here, far out to sea, amazing the center of the storm and intensity of it, you can tell almost like an eye of the hurricane out there, doesn't it? but over 400 miles away, and still close enough, because it is so huge, to produce snow here and incredible wind gusts across southeastern massachusetts, and we are just getting started. live stormtracker radar, report on twitter for middleborough, snowflakes out there and flurries ahead of it starting to show up here around i-95 corridor, going to fill in fairly quickly, i do believe, and timeline slower than what's happening because the models haven't caught up to what's going on, sandwich to falmouth to wellfleet to provincetown as well, accumulating snow on martha's vineyard to lightly we are not talking about feet of snow just yet, won't ever talk
foot of snow in south shore certainly possibility. future snow clearly up here, so it is a good hour behind it looks like. so by nine -- 9:00 hour into boston along i-95, seen flurries already, going to fill in northern part of the north shore and boston and worcester as well in short order and taking over the state into southern new hampshire. so through the afternoon and into the early evening, the snow will continue to fly. sweet spot continues to be the south shore, expecting up to a foot of snow and part of the story. meteorologist jason brewer, you have been tracking strong winds as well. >> jason: absolutely. wind gust in excess of 50 miles per hour in few spots, the islands, higher terrain, right now running 40 to 45, plymouth, nantucket, boston logan airport and just going to get worse. going to see winds gusting up in excess of 50 miles per hour, most spots throughout the day, and then by tonight, after midnight, the winds will subside

gene and sara, back to you. >> gene: snow was just starting to fall in the south shore and flakes in middleborough as mentioned. >> sara: michael henrich live along the coast in plymouth and you have actually had to move the live shot for safety reasons >> michael: wind gusts topped 50 miles per hour, but since the last report, since we established here on the other side of the little harbor, the snowflakes have started to fall. plus the water left is already starting to rise, guys. i took a picture about 20 minutes ago, and see the first little ridge of rocks there sticking out next to the sea wall, the water is now up against it, right? tweeted the picture out 20 minutes ago, the water was about 10 feet further away. so this is quickly creeping in, we are going to see the water level continue to rise and that is one of the reasons we have this coastal flooding concern as
into blizzard type conditions in the plymouth area. we are keeping a close eye on that, working to find out more information about how the local authorities here are responding to it and we will have an update for you in 30 minutes. for now live in plymouth, michael henrich, fox25 news. >> gene: something going to be wrapping up from south shore to middlesex county. we continue the team coverage in newton where jessica reyes live on 128 and people are being told to stay off the roads. traffic behind you, looks like people are actually heeding that advice at this point. >> jessica: they are. traffic picked up a little bit since the last time we saw you guys, and snow working way to newton's this morning, but once it does get here as kevin and jason has been saying, it is going to stick around quite sometime, and run into things at the tail end of the morning commuted. fortunately people seem to be heeding the warnings to stay off off the road ahead of the storm this morning.
couple minutes ago, and they tell us they have 938 crews treating with it clearing the roads in the east and southeast parts of the state. positions are different depending where you are right now, but crews are seeing everything from dry to wet and slush covered roads. now, the snow hasn't made its way everywhere quite yet, not in newton just yet and going to stick around for much of the day once it does get here, and we will be out here all morning long, keeping an eye on things, taking another look what you could expect in 30 minutes. for now live here in newton, jessica reyes, fox25 news. >> gene: there are 120 departures canceled since we went on the air at 4:00 and another 117 flights headed for boston has been canceled.

in the boston area around 9:00 a.m. and already seeing some around the cape and islands. >> kevin: flakes around the main body, reports all responding to me on twitter, appreciate getting the reports. karen says flakes starting to fall, that was in middleborough, handful of flurries -- that's michael in plymouth and snowflakes over in middleborough as well, so that was from last time. storm way out in the ocean here continuing to turn away, pushing snow back out to the south shore, cape cod, that's heaviest band of snow right deeper blue coming right across the bridges and canal southern plymouth county and live stormtracker good indication where these and outer cape as well and report getting from the braintree split
talked a few minutes ago and broken flurries before, going to increase in coverage and meet up with this one across the boston area this morning. so the snow is coming, just taking its sweet time developing but will fill in here and timeline is slow, so going to be not noon time before it is all in the north shore but certainly at least an hour before that and sea coast of new hampshire and not only closer to storm but winds blowing in bands out to the south shore as well from the northeast ocean effect if you will. eight to 12 inches of snow, south of boston, boston in five to eight inch band, worcester in that as well, north shore into the sea coast of new hampshire, couple questions changed the snow totals since yesterday and sara and i collaborated on this yesterday afternoon and he has us on at 6:00 yesterday and kept it the same way and that is because we don't see the storm
widespread across the area and anything worried about it pulling too quickly out to see and heavy bands coming in, up to foot of snow, cuts off to the north and west and lesser amounts here and globby snowball snow squishes together and don't measure as deeply as fluffy snow to the north and west and fluffy snow blows around days like this. >> jason: winds 65 miles per hour at times for plymouth, barnstable, nantucket and dukes county and that's why the blizzard warning is up, visibility so poor, so low with issues there and with the winds as well, power outages, more tree limbs, especially with the gloppy snow you talked about, kevin, south and east, winter storm warning in pink and back to lower totals like you showed us.

above the obstacles in place 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. an america where after a lifetime of labor, there is time for rest and grandchildren. a nation that defends our people and our values, but no longer carries so much of that burden alone. i know we can create that america if we listen to our conscience and our hearts and not to the pundits and the naysayers. i'm bernie sanders. i approve this message, and i ask for your vote. building a better bank starts with looking at something old, like this... and saying, "really?" so capital one built

storm way out in the ocean, amazing and this far away in southern new england and how far it will go, messing up the plans in the roadways. >> sara: right now mema bracing for more damage as strong winds make their way throughout the area. >> gene: joined right now with peter judge with mema at bunker in framingham. peter, folks are still in the dark, and what is the concern. >> 3,000 outages and with the strong winds, that be the issue, heavy wet snow, this is going to be the winds potentially can take wires and trees down, particularly the closer to the coast more dangerous that
>> sara: any shelters, warming centers for people impacted by the storm? >> not yet at this particular point. usually those start to open up later in the day when people sort of got the idea that they are not going to get the power overnight. we want folks to check with the communities and, if they don't have power call 211 and it will let them know where the nearest shelters might be. >> gene: don't take matters into your own hands. >> treat every wire as live wire and don't try to be a hero. >> gene: stay away and if nothing else remember that. peter, we know you will be busier as storm moves in and morning moves along.
>> you're welcome, be safe. >> julie: so far many of you are heeding warnings to stay off the roads and that's why we are seeing a traffic map like this, not a lot of red which is the typical volume and traffic flow denoted in red at the time of the commute. slow spot the expressway, average speeds 33 miles per hour, route 193 south and 128 locked good. over to live look at route 1 in saugus, usually jampacked so please, stay off the roads and thank you for doing so, keeps everybody so much safer. 23 minutes on the pike eastbound from 495 to mass ave. nine minutes on the expressway
to the pike. >> kevin: band right across the canals now, inching its way through sandwich and falmouth the last couple hours, buzzards bay, mattapoisett, onset, southern plymouth county and this is a band that's really coming down hard, inch an hour snowfall rates and reports if you're watching and send report at k lemanowicz
and if you're still watching send anyway and leading edge of the light but steady snow working in and boston flakes, already seeing snow in the boston area anyway, middleborough, notice coating of snow, fresh snow on the ground in middleborough, this is own stephanie, brutal in scituate, beautiful pictures cents us too and daniel miller low on route 3 through the stretch where the snow starting to come down and
to p.j. wigs to 75 and this is from dorchester with snowfallen there as well, so definitely in the boston area now, continuing to spread through to the north shore, through the lunch hour, everybody getting snow to the early afternoon, starts to peel off. now, the heaviest shield of snow is right in here, but snow behind it going to keep on going and dynamics in the atmosphere will keep the snow flying
and winds coming off the water will enhance on south shore, why we have eight to 12 inches of snow expected south of boston along the south shore to cape cod, five to eight inches and gloppy stuff smushed down on cape and nantucket with another five to eight everyones i-95 corridor boston to providence and boston, worcester, lowell, nashua, new hampshire, all in five to eight inch band beyond there and new hampshire and big primary don't want a lot of snow anyway, going to cut off pretty quickly and biggest concern because it
snow over 400 miles away and producing incredible winds, isn't it. >> jason: right now winds blowing snow around and getting visibility problems already. that's why there's a mr.izzard warning in cape and islands and half mile falmouth half mile out to chatham as well. let's take look at wind gusts 40s boston logan, 43 plymouth, 46 nantucket right now, and they are not going down any time soon we will continue to have wind problems right through the day today. after dark we begin to see the wind subside but won't be until tomorrow morning, wake up and more normal wind pattern there. look at coastal flooding threat and warnings around the time of high tide today, so starting really now through 1:00, high tide will be causing some minor
area and moderate red highlighted area and water coming up into basement in those areas. cold, windy, upper 20s feeling more like the teens and wind is with us all day as well as the snow increasing right through the mid-morning and late-morning and lunchtime hours. overnight tonight, teens and 20s, cold night and frozen up on the roads and keep that in mind for morning drive time tomorrow and look at chance for snow throughout the week. we still have it, still out there and flurries on friday because very strong arctic front will move in and look atly temperatures by the end of the week, we are in single digit territory, so definitely february and having a chance to play catch-up on snow deficit we have been having the last couple months. gene and sara? >> gene: going somewhere warm
happened after the game many >> gene: denver is super bowl champs for a third time. broncos never trailed to the 24-10 win. after the game disappointed newton made headlines but walking off the podium instead of answering questions about the loss. crowd went crazy saying he was a sore loser. as for manning, he is not sure if this was his his last game. >> i want to kiss my wife, kids, celebrate with family and teammates. drinking a lot of beer,

massachusetts and daniel miller driving around and things are expected to intensify today. >> gene: snowing monday morning, february 8th, i'm gene lavanchy. >> sara: snow is falling wind is real concern. michael henrich is in plymouth and stephanie coueignoux is live in scituate for us. updating commute and team of meteorologist in the stormtracker weather center giving us very latest and, kevin, watching all weekend and worst is really what to come. >> kevin: forecast we have right now and we are sticking with it and watching storm intensify wait offshore and look at incredible center of the storm, almost like hurricane out there in the ocean and blowing
storm force and also producing storm and deep blue band through the wareham and mattapoisett, sandwich, heaviest snow continues to come down right now and accumulating snow and live new ones and most of them between half inch and two inches of snow and martha's vineyard. northern extent last time talked to milton to norwood to medfield and north of that creeping through bellingham here on 495 and into the dover area, also northward through dedham and needham and boston seeing light snow falling as well. so really encompassing the area by 10:00 along the pike, north shore by noon time into southern new hampshire as well and afternoon and snow band from the ocean on land through the afternoon hours and evening and pushes
off to the north but northeasterly winds keep the snow bands coming at the south shore. that's why we have the enhanced snow down there, eight to 12
five to eight inches boston and westwood ward. i will be honest with you, this is the area i'm most concerned about not having as much snow we are looking at just because northwest extent of the snow not entirely sure
that's going to make it all the way back here, but seen this happen before, not going to give up that storm just yet. looks like the snow will come down heavily enough to get to these amounts, back here watching very closely track to the north and west, wind chills are a problem too, feels like four in worcester and eight in bedford and mentioned tropical storm strength and they are blowing that hard. >> jason: wind gusting 60, 65 this afternoon and already seen very low visibility around half mile to quarter of mile in that red highlight area and that's
with wind advisory north and west, farther west you go more totals are and look at the visibilities right now half mile hyannis down to quarter mile earlier so bouncing around the criteria there on the cape look at wind, 40, 45 miles
per hour boston, logan to plymouth, over to nantucket, a little bit lighter as you go inland, but they will increase throughout the area throughout the afternoon and winds are totally gone. check out rival times on the steady snow shield as it makes its way northwest ward, waltham 8:56 and wilmington by 9:30 as well, so as kevin said coming up the pike right now and only migrating northward. let's go to julie now and get traffic. >> julie: things look good on route 1 and 93 south and so far people really paid attention to the warning to stay home and
little bit of slowing along the expressway and this is volume we do not see at 8:30. 23 minutes eastbound 495 to mass ave and 20 minutes on 93 south from 495 to
the leverett connector. sara and gene, back to you. >> sara: fox25 michael henrich live in plymouth where we have seen it rise two hours. >> michael: standing there 30 minutes ago in last live report and now you can't see it. it is underwater and we look up
and here since the 6:00 hour in this particular position and splashing up against the sea wall and visibility decreased and strong winds with gusts over 50 miles per hour and continue to swirl around and larger boat that's where we originally were and when first moved to the location, we could see past that and much of the coastline and pushing back a little bit and winds pushing back trees and that is something that we will keep a close eye on as heavy wet snow does continue to fall and wind continues to whip trees around and power outages, in addition to the coastal flooding concerns that i just highlighted and check the eversource website two minutes before coming on for live report and more than 500 customers were out of power in
watch that closely and continue to update you on these increase ingly worsening conditions. live in plymouth, fox25 news. >> gene: drivers urged to 128 if possible and continue the team coverage on fox25 in newton and, jess, despite the warning, plenty of drivers on the road but certainly not the volume you would expect at this time on monday morning. >> jessica: light on 128 and has been since that. been looking like this since 6:00 this morning and biggest issue that we had here in newton so far this morning is winds certainly and continues to pick up here and state police and
the roads, because not only will conditions be dangerous but they will fear the roads much more efficiently when they are not bogged with traffic and braving roads to get to work and making best of it but playing it safe. >> 2:30 so might be rough driving and take your time, drive slow. >> jessica: within the last hour state police pointed out there's a parking ban in revere, winthrop, keep in mind and snow expected here soon, we will check back in with you in an hour and live in newton, jessica reyes, fox25 news. >> sara: all right, jess. head out now to fox25 daniel
south where in the last hour we have seen the visibility deteriorate, daniel. >> daniel: that's right. see from live pick here headed toward plymouth visibility you can barely see in front of you as well as those signs to tell where you you are. notice the couple of drivers actually gripping steering wheels as they drive infrared the cape here. just want to give you information from massdot tweeting last 20 minutes that they are and east and southeast of the state and plan to have additional crews that they will put out on the roads and visibility in front of us here and dealing with strong winds, so if you have a low profile vehicle and high-profile

strong winds too and report from falmouth and reliable report three and a half inches and vineyard couple hours ago this morning, so snow it is higher than that now, and heavier snow band sandwich and wareham and continues to push off toward the northeast, middleborough snow as well, carver getting into action as well and plymouth coming down hard. the northward extent is through boston now and just about to waltham, back here approaching hopkinton, mildford right now as well, so up here where boston is, seeing some of the snow come down, it is not the heaviest of the snow seeing here and at least it is snowing all the roadways in boston and charlestown, westward to cambridge and watertown and charles river to the pike and this is the extent of the snow 10:30 this morning 11 and noon time and north shore and southern new hampshire and everyone snowing early this afternoon and staying that way
later on tonight we will see the snow start to break apart, especially during the evening hours as storm raises away from us and strong northeasterly winds continuing northerly winds too blowing snow bands across cape cod and south shore and for that reason we have enhanced snowfall band there, eight to 12 inches and snow bands will continues later on play into the night, lesser amounts off to the north and west, five to eight inches, along the pike to worcester, northward to lowell and nashua, new hampshire and sea coast and cuts off traumatically there and problematic part of the forecast right now and going to be tracking that to make sure numbers will pan out. bottom line is snowy afternoon for you and winds are incredible and that's the biggest problem right now how they report of tree down in halifax already jason and trees are going to be a problem with winds so hard. >> jason: 50, 50 miles per hour winds and higher terrain
we have a lot of snow coming down but also because winds in excess of 35 miles per hour and creating whiteout conditions, plymouth, barnstable and dukes county. six inches more 12 hours and winter weather advisory and idea the trend southeastern parts of the state highest impact, check out visibility right now, request of the to half mile, plymouth down to the mile and reduced visibilities don't want to be on the roads if don't have to, winds gusting now anywhere along the shoreline in particular going to be a lot higher. so as we go into the afternoon, winds are with us, 45 to 50 miles per hour gusts, even localized 65 miles per hour gusts in that blizzard warning area. and then as we get into tonight, going to gradually see some improvement that really won't be until after midnight and into
