cold windy day. 18 in boston. it's a stinging win. minus five the wind chilled worcester. 1 in boston. winds gusting over 40 miles per hour at times with the current gust right out in at 38 in boston. 39 in worcester. the winds frequently gusting 40 to 50 miles per hour during the day. because of that there's a wind advisory in place for those strong wind gust until 7:00 this evening. still windy tonight. just not as powerful and overall it's a cold day with gusty wind throughout the afternoon as temperatures slowly struggling to warm up into the mid 20s. what are we expecting over the weekend if we do get a major storm. i expect it to be saturday into sat day night. with the snow and wind potential there. in terms of the storm forming it's a blockbuster down through the mid atlantic. the question is how far north does it track. more northern track would bring some significant snow and wind in here to southern new england.
stays more to south. that would minimize impact. something to consider as we head guys? >> time now for fast track traffic. >> good morning, everyone. happy tuesday to you. here's the pike. still slow this morning. let's go to map. a lot of red. if you are getting ready to head tout door give yourself some extra time this morning. slow drive all the way into boston. we have a abled vehicle on the pike eastbound right at newton corner. north of town on 93 you are stop and go from 495 to 128 then 128 on boston 93 southbound really a slow drive. some delays on route one as well. south of town from the braintree split into worst. that drive over half an hour. part of the reason for this the hov lane is still closed this morning. route 3 some slowing as you approach the braintree split. 24 you're slowing down as you approach 128 as well. let's take a look at the drive times if you are getting ready
25 to 26 minutes on the expressway from the braintree split. over half an hour still on 93 southbound from 128 to zakim bridge and then on the t we have minor delays on tread, blue and green lines. back to you guys. a bitter blast hitting home and that's worry for mbta who face a lot of problems last winter. >> nothing like a slowdown that we saw today. but this time they were really ahead of the cold. they were prepping the tracks long before the sun even came up. let's check in with jennifer eagan in dorchester. jen? >> good morning. there's been some disabled trains this morning on the red and green line. mbta right now are saying that those problems are under investigation. they are not necessarily blaming them on the cold. the bitter cold has caused some problems in the past even the recent past including the rest line. to try to get ahead of any possible problems the ts running trains overnight on the red,
we saw the train with no passengers onboard running on the red line overnight. crews also kept track which is working all night to prevent them from freezing up. that's on january 5th. if you remember we had a very cold morning. temperatures dipping down into the single digits. caused big problems first in andover around 4:00 in the morning a train slipped off of the tracks. that's blamed on warping. no passengers onboard at that hour. it effected service for much of the day in the same day the red line train broke and that case also attributed to the cold. again, overnight to try and prevent any problems the t was running trains on some of the tracks to try and get ahead of potential track problems because of the bitter cold. we're live in dorchester this 7news "today in new england." 7news now airport employees demanding change at logan. they protested outside the airport and several were arrested. victoria warren live at the east

maybe later this afternoon more sunshine back into the picture. but the theme here is i don't expect any significant precipitation over at the next few days. right through friday. remaining dry. windchill factor. five to ten degrees this afternoon. so it will remain cold. it will remain windy. with air temperatures running into the lower-to-middle 20s. and occasionally we see the strong gust close to 50 and for more on that over to danielle. earlier this reported a gust over 50 miles we're hour at 55. and worcester gusts around 46 miles per hour. here in boston. 41 miles per hour. new bedford. plymouth. 38 miles per hour. the winds are not over yet. they will continue as we head into this afternoon. 4:00 this evening still those gusty westerly wind around 40 miles per hour from the drive from work. as we h head into the overnight wind at 50. this wind starts to die down. tomorrow morning look breezy out there.

what the question is where does the track after hammering the mid atlantic off to the east and sliding south or does it move to the east northeast and give us a significant snow and wind event. that track one we bring in significant snow wind and coastal flood threat. track two further south would escape to the south of us with minimal impact. that's something to watch. do favor right now bringing in snow and wind on saturday. the height of the storm would be saturday into saturday night ending early sunday. still ahead this morning. already onboard with possible changes for the mbta. when you can make your voice heard about a proposed fair hike and late night service. why a woman who said she's

and to the east they could slide impact. something tugging toward the fact we're get snow or wind in here on saturday. saturday night. how much snow and wind to be determined still about five days away, plenty of time to watch it but certainly on the look. a pelican flying into trouble in south florida a fishing hook getting the bird all tangled up. and the police officer noticed the pelican in distress he rushed in for this wild rescue. now investigates hope to get the bird back on the wing. >> reporter: it wasn't your typical monday morning beach rescue. he was patrolling a south point park when he spotted a pelican shaking. >> when i approached the animal i can see that he had embedded a hook on the wing and wasn't able to fly. i could also see he had a fishing line wrapped around the wing.
