yesterday 59 miles an hour wind gusts it's brutal out there. >> reporter: it was brutal. snow. it was like ice crystals coming off the ocean hitting you in the face. but you can see the winds are still here. `let's be honest so the seas are still acting up. it's not the heavy gusts of winds we're experiencing yesterday and the snow has completely stopped. so it was a wet snow. it weighed down a lot of the lines. but i got to tell you crews were up all night and into this morning so if we could look at video we shot around 5:30 this morning. you can see crews were out all across the island here on martha's vineyard clearing the roads making sure people were able to get out so they've done a good job. also with the wet heavy snow we received yesterday and the high winds we had power lines down so we caught people, they were' scraping off their wind shields
these guys hot coffee because a lot of the crews have been working all day yesterday and throughout the night. we even found a guy who was out doing it the old-fashioned way. >> i've been out all night long. >> what it has been like? [laughter] >> it has been rough. you know, drifting, flowing. you can't see, whiteouts. you know, stuff like that. you know. >> who needs a snow blower because i'm, i've 2 o 0 snow blowers right here. old-fashioned. snow shovel gets right down to the bare surface. that is the bottom line. >> reporter: that is not a power line but this is a phone line down but that gives you an idea of the yesterday. power crewhave a problem because yesterday at one point there were more than 500 houses here on martha's power.
lost power for maybe a half hour or hour then the got bauer pock but a this morning probably about 45 minimums ago we could see only about 50 households are still without power here on itself island. so that is good news for a lot of people trying to stay warm and out of the wind. the latest live on martha's vineyard i'm brandon gunnoe, 7 news today in new england. >> thank you. let's go across the water and head to falmouth. >> that is where we find susan tran live in one of the hardest hit areas, some of the snow piles around you are, what is it? a got cousski plus a brady. >> no, we're going to do math because it's game day. i'm superpsych sod this is the jackpot. we're in falmouth. plenty of snow. the most in massachusetts, i'm going to call this a malcolm butler minus a ryan allen. 15 inches of snow in falmouth. as we drove over we went
the roads were superclear then as we got down route 3 it got a little slushier. by the time we got to 28 it was a little more slushy but we did speak with a plow driver. he said for much of the evening they went 24/7 to make shored roads are as you can see pretty darn passible. not as bad. but that took a lot of work. so much snow in the areas that you can see that have not been plowed, plenty of it. this is a street sign here. that you can see all of the snow has been plowed into the area. so there is a lot of it. it is a heavy so that it does hang on the trees and the wires. when we speak to some officials they did say there was some power outage at the height of the storm around 10:00 but it has been back and folks are in a good spot here in falmouth. most of the folks if you are waking up you are likely going to clear off your drives and the roadways. it's going to be a lot of cleanup but we can actually
it's good news. by the time we get to game time and you are done with all of your shoveling we should be all set. so 15 inches of snow here in falmouth which i'm now calling it a malcolm butler minus a ryan allen. susan tran. >> you know you live in new england when there is patsman -- pats map -- >> we know 12. >> 12, we know 11. that is all we god for know. moving along, the cape to sandwich, last night the area saw treacherous conditons. >> john cuoco is on the scene assessing the damage. you are not getting whipped by the winds like you were yesterday. >> reporter: no, kris, not nearly as bad as it was yesterday. the main worry we've been talking about it is that coastal flooding. if you take a look behind me the water is insuring closer and closer. people will keep an eye on
but you are right. the winds were bad last night. they've kept up today. i'm sure you can see it pushing me forward but sandwich is in cleanup mode. snow blowers and plows like mario's clearing the way bright and early sunday morning in sandwich. >> heavy wet snow, it was tough to drive around. it was tough to see. it kept sticking to the wind shield and the mirrors and so forth. a lot of slipping and sliding. >> reporter: on saturday high winds sent heavy snow whipping off the beach along town neck road. >> insane. it's crazy. >> hope we keep power on because it flashed. i'm hoping we have a generator. >> reporter: the intense wind and snow did knock out power in spots across town. fortunately people were ready for that. >> typical thing, make sure that the house was stocked with, you know batteries and wood and the whole bit.
the road saturday were taking things slow. snow continued to pile up and visibilities became worse, plows like mario doing their job and the snow winding down the big concern now possibly coastal flooding. >> are you worried about the tide. you worry about the water coming up. the high tide tonight and tomorrow will be interesting. but that is the price you pay when you live down here by the water. >> reporter: that is the word this morning, interesting that coastal flooding, that is the really the big concern. big worry for the folks here especially some of the houses that are down this way. i want you to follow me over here. some of the houses we're talking to some of the people last night, they're really worried about the coastal flooding, they're worried when this tide does come in. so for now we're live here in sandwich, john cuoco, 7 news. >> thank you. >> makes sure to keep an eye on that. we'll continue our storm force coverage as we track conditions across the state. >> live look in boston, boy,

of the snow that is left behind here. j.r. but quite a mess still. >> that is a good point because a year ago this weekend the snow blitz started. in between the monster storms we had nothing but arctic air so you get two feet of snow. wouldn't melt. two more feet of snow won't melt this. is not happening. this is difference so i'm not saying that spring is coming at us and you can whistle dixie but we've clouds and snow showers that will depart and then as kris will talk about it warms up this week.
into the 40s, upper 40s on tuesday which will get rid of some of the pasty cement and there is a lot of melting to be had. mashpee a foot of snow. marcheston mills a foot. then you come off of the cape and work all over southern new england. the numbers impressive between 4-8 inches of snow. new bedford 8 inches in the city of boston officially 6.1. hudson you go north of the mass pike you will see that here. numbers drop off so this was the jackpot if you will. the sweet spot between 10-15 inches. 6 had ever 10 inches of snow. metro boston about 5, 6, 7, 8 inches of snow. dudley 2 so there is the sign of the dryer air doing what it was supposed to do in boston but it did a good snob northwest of town. snow, bolton, hudson about an inch of snow. lexington a couple of inch, tops field three inches of snow. storm system moving away. high pressure taking it place for the difference between the high and low
that is what we have to contend with. these are the peak gust yesterday between 55 will have 75. not nearly as windy as yesterday. hyannis gusting to 40. plymouth at 24679 the wind chills are cold. when you are out there shoveling, it feels like 4 in boston. it feels cold out there. bedford feels like 6 and with the north wind we do watch the concern of coastal flooding especially nantucket. chatham the high tide coming in at 11:00 am and provincetown also some the risk of some minor coastal flooding, mid day high tide, so this is the concern here. from metro boston down through sandwich. possibility of moderate coastal flooding in sandwich, minor in switchate and minor in boston. for more on the forecast, and that advertised warm-up kris, your town. >> reporter: we like seeing the sunshine. yes it's a cold start. temperatures in the teens in
north wind about 5-10 miles an hour, the wind as nearly as strong as yesterday. sunshine working in from the north and from the west. forecast model taking you through the day. a few patches of clouds overnight and back into some sunshine for month and even into tuesday. do expect sunshine to start after. going to be a front off to the west of us area of low pressure as well on tuesday. this is going to zip right through here tuesday night. there maybe a passing shower on tuesday but the theme is quiet weather diminishing winds which is noise on a sunday. clean up this morning an get ready for the pats game. all about the pats this afternoon. temperatures warming up to the mid 30s partly cloudy to mostly cloudy tonight. temperatures in the deeps to lower 20s and getting meting down. no arctic air on tuesday, 47 for the high temperature. >> love that warm-up that we have. no chilly weather between storms, still to come we're tracking the snow fallout.
