>> staying on top of this winter blast. heavy wet snow all across the area. a lot of schools are closed. for those who are headed out if you have to work, you will need some extra time as we take a live look at boston. as we have more live pictures, snow continues to come down. drivers have to take it slow and easy. sara flinch. big wet storms coming down. and live look outside at newton
let's begin with jeremy reiner. >> the snow has picked up in intensity. it's been snowing several hours in the roadways. for a few hours, the radar is losing the snowflakes. travel has been a real problem, even the main roads themselves, saw the pictures outside. again getting a little squirrely. if you have to travel between now and 4:00 p.m., factor the extra time. it certainly is going to be the slow go. the deep shades of blue really tell the story. they tell us when they have the heavy plumes of snow. there's several batches of the heavy snow, and back into metro west, the colors of blue become dark again and also in the connecticut river valley and western hills. snow line has made snow progress across the cave. here's the storment again, it
eastern seaboard. back edge is in the city. and we anticipate the back edge of the snow moving through massachusetts during the afternoon. several hours of accumulated snow. beverly at 32. at these temperatures, it will be easier for the snow to accumulate on main roadways. we have concern for poor travel out there. with temperatures around 31, 32, 33, it's a heavy wet snow. it's not like an arctic blast of cold air, with so many storms last winter. this is a storm that's behaving more like you would find in the month of march, than february. the concern here, with five to eight inches of snow, it's a heavy wet snow. that has already been leading to tree limb damage. tree limbs coming down. trees coming down in the case of going through power lines, it's a lost of power. that's the concern, perhaps
destruction. the winds will pick up. the heavy wet snow clinging to the power lines, likely to continue the threat of power destruction as well as poor travel. chris. >> taking a look at the wind speeds 20 miles an hour, sustained in the city of boston. 10-15, out through much of metro west and gustier winds in the cape and island. it's adding to the stress as the cold air continues to gust. and 38 in plymouth. you add the pushes of wind, that's sagging with the heavy wet snow, and seeing scattered outages across the area. especially the 5-8 inches of heavy wet snow in the forecast. in terms of the timing of the snow ending, generally between 3-5, from west to east, across the state, later, the sea winds down. it drives overnight tonight, it cools down.
afternoon, running in the upper 20s and lower 30s. once the snow shuts down, get outside. at 6:00 p.m., 31 in boston. upper 20s in worcester and watch the numbers fade off back in the mid to upper 20s by about midnight and down to the teens and lower 20s by day break tomorrow. we'll be a much colder start to your saturday morning. a far cry for the mid to upper 50s yesterday afternoon. it's a cooler start for the weekend. we'll get a little melting tomorrow afternoon, temperatures back in the mid to upper 30s. really in the heart of the storm right now, at least in the next 4-5 hours. boston, we find our 7 bri edwards, storm coverage, on top of the government center. how does it look? >> you heard jr say it.
every once in a while, you get a gust that comes through here and it starts blowing the snow around. and visibility, definitely reduced at this point. we checked about an hour ago, and things were a lot clearer. at this point, visibility down to a quarter of a mile, half a mile, and the roads are finally accumulating the snow. i seen quite a few snow plows coming through here. the big message today, pack your patience. it will take more time than you think trying to head out. if you don't have to go anywhere, stay inside. maybe enjoy a nice cup of cocoa. it's soupkind of day. live in government center, downtown center >> and it does sound nice, bri. if you can't get in front of
