two places. i'm giving this a little higher amount just because it's like a vigorous shot of snow that will come on through, but it will be brief and not around long enough to accumulate any more than that. your seven-day forecast, bringing temperatures up near 50 degrees. chasing 50 on saturday and sunday. come back in a few minutes and i'll show you the latest thinking on potential for a storm next week. helicopter crash caught on camera from just feet away. >> you won't believe how close this was. take a look.
