we can get big storms end of february into march. we get spring forward in march. we have baseball starting down in ft. myers as well as spring officially arriving on the 20th and by that point we're talking ability sun set close to 7:00 p.m. all right, let's deal with reality in the near-term here. east falmouth almost a foot of snow. 11 inches there. milford picking up 8.3. boston at 6.3. this is slow and steady buildup. boston through metro west. a lot of town picking up about 5, 6, 7, inches of snow. at no point was it overwhelming in the city of boston. once in a while you get the click conditions on the roadway. 25 in plymouth. it's cold this morning. couple of scattered snow failures out and about. nothing major to deal with this morning. there was scattered lighter snow through central new hampshire. don't think it will slow many folks down.
9:46 am
this is slowing folks down, down through harrisburg in baltimore, maryland down into d.c. complex set up. bits and pieces swirling around from the ohio valley into the mid atlantic through ocean storm offshore. by the way that ocean storm is staying offshore but complexity of everything has to lift through new england. there's enough instability tomorrow to trigger scattered snow showers and few heavier snow squalls and you note the nature of this as you go from tomorrow morning into the afternoon it's in and out. it's scattered about. you watch in the afternoon. you see some of the darker blue beginning to show up. and some of these heavier snow squall. you could get a coating to an inch of snow. so not at all day thing. i think one or two inches more localized than anything else. temperature low-to-mid 30s. not a major storm to talk about. but we do have some snowflakes
9:47 am
couple of flurries. couple of degrees either side of 30. then tonight up with l of degrees either side of 20 with couple of snow showers arriving late overnight tonight. i do expect it to be dry through the evening. mostly cloudy seasonable tomorrow with scattered snow showers and snow squalls. one thing for certain. even though we don't talk about ton of snow over the next several days. we have made some inroads here trying to catch up to seasonal averages. it was a slow start as tim caputo was saying december and january no problem. we were dealing with snow. close to seasonal levels in the city of above. more over to danielle. >> warmest december on record. now our snow totals are getting close to where they should be by this time in the season we're only about 3 inches off. we 23.6 inch so far. we're still about 10 inches below normal. but a big difference this year from last year by this time last
9:48 am
hard to believe. in worcester, 92 inches of snow. 53.7 fewer in boston. i think we'll take it. as far as temperature i mentioned the warmest december on record. then january was mild. february been off to pretty mild start as well with temperatures. about 10 degrees warmer than average last year was the second coldest february on record. now we're starting to see some of that cold air return as we head into the weekend. temperatures in the teens. those are high temperatures. we haven't seen that in a while. we haven't had since february of last year. this year the coldest we've seen is 25 degrees. we've waited 350 days for this and for more on the cold sending it back to you. >> i don't think we've been wanting it to come back anytime soon. you have to remember after all of the snow we had second coldest month. this will be a couple of day

all the snow from the past few day sparking creativity all around in this particular case. a family decided they wanted to go above and beyond building a snowman in their front yard. instead that melt a snow dragon. it's gone from small frame to this giant winged creature. and now itten has some color. the dragon whopping 10 feet long and five feet tall. didn't they say they named it carl. >> such a common name for an uncommon sight there in someone front yard. >> hopefully he doesn't breathe fire. he will melt himself there. you put that effort in it. you want the cold to be sustained. you don't want 60-degree weather to see him melt away. i think can carl here for the duration here. at least for the next couple of week. we have a cold pattern ahead of out.
