11:00 am
good morning, erve. eleven:00 now, the nor'easter paying us a visit this morning and into the afternoon boston dealing with snowfall today. a live look at government center, areas expecting up to a foot or more by the end of the storm and we're also of course keeping a close eye on the roadway, we know you have a lot of places to go. this is 93 in stoneham. hundreds of crews working to stay ahead of the storm and the traffic, they're trying to keep the roads clear for what is setting up to be a chaotic commute tonight. good morning, everyone. this is the second storm in less than a week.
11:01 am
making the call to close this afternoon. and the storm is still moving in. it is going to stick around throughout the day. a long duration event. here is jamie ryan err. we have the blizzard warning in effect, plymouth, city of boston back toes what worcester hills. steady snow right now until 4:00 p.m. and there will be the occasional burst of heavy snow, but i don't think this is a storm where we have widespread heavy snow at any time. so road crews should be able to do a pretty good job of staying out ahead of the snow especially boston north with lighter snows happening after 4:00 p.m. until midnight tonight. right now the high tide is happening as we speak. doppler radar showing bands of heavy snow. most of the activity has been focused throughout southeast mast off of buzzard's bay up the south shar. you do get these breaks in
11:02 am
and a good way to really find where it is snowing steadily is to use the visibility. half mile visibility boston. only a third mile visibility south shore and the cape. here is our storm system right here wound up. it is at the point where you call a warm air seclusion where the warm eair suts itself out, when that happens you is a powerhouse storm. there it is on the radar through the afternoon. patches of snow which at times will back away late this afternoon into the evening to just light snow and flurries. and then the flunt brunt of the snow is over tonight. anywhere between five and 9 inches of snow, downtown boston six or seven inches of snow. south shore, south ocape up to a foot of snow by very early tomorrow morning. chris. high tide big concern along the coastline as we spack. a coastal flood warning in place through one:00 in the afternoon to.
11:03 am
us and we've had many reports of coastal flooding from hull to scituate. marshfield, nantucket and portions in the north are dealing with coastal flooding. this will be the case over the next couple of hours until the tide cans recede far enough so water can get pulled back into the ocean. do avoid the near shore roads flooded out by the ocean oh the next couple of hours. per hour. gusting 50 to 60 coastal plymouth county through the cape and island and strong winds as we go throughout the afternoon. although they do subside here less than this evening and overnight tonight. snow. or leans ability an inch nature of and tauton at .1 inches of snow. this is part of the story, too, the elkington delete s really cold air 18-degrees in boston. twenty in nord, a lot of us this is a drier snow and has eless water content to it. it is easier to push around. on the flip side with the colder
11:04 am
the battle the cold wind chill values running close to zero, barely above it in boston. feeling like 1 degree right now. -one in worcester and wind chills will be down zero to five throughout much of the afternoon. and as jr mentioned still expecting a good dose of snow through the mid to late afternoon hours. you definitely want your head lights on, wipers going on a day like today. marshall wear iy is this. 93 northbound getting onto 128 north. there will be a number of things you need when you head out if you head out on the roads. you're going to need peansz and caution and let me be a cautionary tail, you're going to need windshield washer fluid which we have run out of, we're going to get some, but you can see we've used up an entire jug this morning, we've already gone through an entire tank of gas. so if you're headed out, it will be slow and dirty and you're going to want to keep it slow and keep it cautious. live from behind the wheel, seven news.
11:05 am
how about the storm in the city. let's check in with bree eggers she's been live for us in boston any change? i'm not that impressed with how quickly the snow is piling up. it is not doing so. we've been see steady snow falling for the last two to inch of accumulation. we had a couple of guys that came by and they shoveled all of minutes. that already gives you an idea how different this snow is from what we saw on friday, the light powdery snow that is not like the wet heavy stuff. we're still hurting from shoveling on friday. so it is blowing around pretty good with those gusts as chris mentioned between 35, 45 miles per hour from time to time. and again, temperatures already 18 degrees in the city of boston. so that's why you can see the consistency of the snow. it is not necessary to wear waterproof gear today, but you'll definitely want to bundle up with the wind chills running

11:27 am
>> welcome back, everybody. 11:30 or storm force coverage continues this morning. here's a live look where a nor oon easter is moving in. some areas expecting up to a foot of snow by the end of this storm. we're keeping an eye on the roads. this is 128 north in beverly. look at that snow. hundreds of crews working to try to stay ahead of it. so take it easy and slow. i'm sarah french. many schools are closed as we deal with yet another storm. let's take a look at boston. throughout the day. just starting to snow? boston.
11:28 am
track closely. let's send to jeremy reiner with more. >> if you look closely, you can see a few deeper shades of blue. one west of interstate 95 moving back into the hills. and another deep shade of blew down through the south. those are areas of heavy snow. they'll be coming in from the ocean moving from southeast to northwest, working up the south shore. a good way to find these heavier snow bands is to use the visibility. when it's down under half a mile or less,s that avenuey snow as well as strong winds. orange, 10-mile visibility. for you guys it's much ado about nothing. there is the center of the storm. it's not going to move any closeer to new england, but even as far away as it is, it's such a massive storm that it can reach out into new england, and
11:29 am
at time that will wind down around midnight tonight. when it's all said and done, late tonight, plan on five to nine inches of snow. again, north and south shore. and more so as you work down the south coast. upwards of a foot of snow. and on to the cape the numbers about 5 to 10 inches of snow. chris. >>jjr, some of the totals coming up. down close to five to nine inches. boston, metro west with the higher totals down through southeastern massachusetts. what we're worried about now continues to be the coastal flooding. a lot of rors of moderate flooding and the near shore roadways pretty much shut off because of a lot of water there. watch out for the closed roads along the ocean drives here through the south shore. we've had a lot of reports from essentially stretching from hull down through marshfield.
11:30 am
1:00 this afternoon. and then as the tides do recede, we should lessen that problem this afternoon. the other issue has been the wind. still gusting 30 to 40 miles an hour, occasionally we've seen a few gusts going higher than that. west, yarmouth picking up five inches of snow. want to show you this too. look at these temperatures. we're talking about a drier, enoughyer snow away from the immediate coastline of the south shore, including the city of boston. 18 . the windchill is close to 0 from boston out through wister. >> thank you, chris. a check on the roads now. our marshall hook is on the traffic roads this morning. the roads look snow covered? >> reporter: yeah. when we judge innd land on 93,
11:31 am
not as much stuff on the roadway or snow in the air. as we have gotten out more to the coast now in beverly, you can see that has reverted to form. we have heavy snow in the air. plenty of accumulation here on 128 at this point. obviously we're keeping the speeds down, just a little over 30 miles an hour. we're headed up to where there's heavy bands moving through. we're going to see what there is to see out there also, as we were down in plymouth earlier we saw what the ocean looked like. as we're going now, still heavy snow. limited visibility and high winds. if you are headed out, you want to bear all of that in mind. live from behind the wheel, i'm marshall hook. >> thank you, marshall. we'll stay with you all morning long giving you updates. if you can't be in front of the tv, remember to get your updates
