of this storm. here in chicago, we're bracing for the worst. the snow began falling late last night. it's not expected to pound the area until later today. now already, at chicago's airports, more than 1,000 flights have been canceled. crews are working hard to try to keep those runways clear. this could be the biggest snowfall of the season for the chicago area. part of the big problem, the strong winds. possibly blizzard-like conditions expected here later today. authorities are asking people, if you don't have to be outside today, don't. stay inside. rob? >> let's get right to where this storm is and where it's going. mentioned this snow there across parts of chicago. this storm is just massive. look at the satellite picture here. kansas city through chicago and stretching across the northeast. where this storm is, now, it's pretty much all snow, north of i-70. look at the stretch of winter weather advisories. winter storm warnings. i mentioned the blizzard warning. that takes effect this afternoon. the winds will crank up later. the storm will intensify.
7:03 am
let's time it out for you. the snows continue through this afternoon. really through tonight. getting into new york by 7:00 a.m. tomorrow. you notice the rain-snow line. the stronger this storm gets, the problem is, the more warm air it pumps in. we get the mixing. i think that will suppress some of the snowfall totals for new york city. it's still going to be a mess for the morning commute. probably higher amounts for the northeast. all right. we're looking at probably 6 to 12 inches, i think possibilities of more than that in some places. a wide swath of 6 to 12 inches. notice the tight gradient there across new york. just north of the city, significantly more snow. sleet and freezing rain mixing in at times. tomorrow will be a slick go. dan? >> all right, rob. thank you. we want to remind everybody to keep it here on abc for the latest on the storm. as it marches across america. we move on now to the latest on the measles outbreak. now 84 cases reported in 14 states. this morning, new questions and concerns about the college student who may have exposed

7:07 am
the 66-minute videos the japanese journalist. kenji goto on his knees. with the masked executioner, jihadi john, a knife in his hand, announcing the execution. >> let the nightmare for japan begin. >> reporter: isis had demanded the release of this failed suicide bomber. the handover was supposed to take place at a border check point with turkey. jordanian officials called off the deal because they had no guarantee a second isis hostage in the swap, a captured jordanian pilot, was even still alive. this morning in japan, outrage over the respected television journalist. the drama captivated the country, as goto's mother and wife issued emotional appeals for the release of the father of two young children. >> our baby girl was only three weeks old when kenji left. i hope our oldest daughter, who is just 2, will get to see her

7:15 am
bulldog. he has a lot of people buzzing online. some saying the doggie hybrid isn't real. but it is real. allegedly photoshopped. >> he looks real in the video. >> animal handlers in georgia, at the local humane society. he's there right now. they say they have never seen anything quite like him before. this photo shared so much online that rami has its own facebook page. the 1-year-old pit/dachshund mix is up for adoption. sara. >> yes. >> the shelter says they've gotten hundreds of calls. if you want it, you can still get it. >> chihuahuas. >> would be great to go with chihuahuas. >> they're old. they don't welcome new comers. if you know what i mean. they rule my roost. but that dog is so cute. >> and if you can't rescue him, you can rescue another animal. there are hundreds of thousands out there. this is, as everybody knows, america's secular holy day, super bowl sunday. and it's not just about seeing your friends and binging on carbs, which even sara haines may actually do today. there will be an actual football game apparently.
7:16 am

7:17 am

7:18 am
still trying to get a ticket to get in, look to pay some big bucks. $9,000, the cheapest ticket available so far. and the most expensive one? $35,000. paula? >> for one ticket, right? one ticket, amy. >> reporter: one ticket. >> well, glad you have the media pass. enjoy the game tonight, amy. and the seahawks headed to a big game after a stunning come from behind victory over the packers. in the nfc championship game. i think the packers are still recovering. now the seahawks are looking far back-to-back super bowl crowns. the patriots have claimed the title three times. haven't hoisted that lombardi trophy in a decade. time to bring in espn football analyst, former nfl quarterback, and can we say, a "gma" favorite, jesse palmer to the show. jesse, first and foremost, we have been inundated whether we like it or not, with deflate-gate. the patriots are painted as the villains. will they use the us versus them mentality to their advantage? >> yeah, paula.
7:19 am
i think it's an us versus the world mentality that they're going to use. it's the rallying cry they'll use to their advantage in the game. i think they feel slighted in a lot of ways. the last few weeks hasn't been about the special season the patriots had, the run down the stretch, or the fact that they blew out the indianapolis colts in the afc championship game. it's all been about the deflate-gate. they're the villain in the super bowl. they're the team a lot of fans are cheering against. this us versus the world mentality, certainly a rallying cry they're going to hope to use to their advantage tonight. >> playing with the chip on their shoulder. so break it down, jesse. what are the keys to this game? >> two huge keys, paula. these teams have to run the football. they have to play great defense.
7:20 am
we know marshawn lynch, from seattle. legarrette blount from the patriots. they have to wear down the defenses. i think defensively for the seahawks, they want to be able to get pressure on tom brady with only four guys. so they can keep as many guys in coverage as they can. the patriots have to keep russell wilson in the pocket. he's the most dangerous quarterback in the nfl when he gets outside the tackle box. running the football and defense, two huge keys. for both of these teams tonight. >> patriots favored by one. who is your pick? >> paula, as a former quarterback, i can't believe i'm about to say this. >> uh-oh. >> but defense wins championships. the seahawks, the last three years, have been the best defense in the nfl. i think tonight, that comes through and shows up. i think if they win tonight they can honestly make an argument to maybe be the greatest defense to ever play in the nfl. i expect tonight to be a close game. i think the seahawks win. i now have to find a $35,000 ticket. so i can watch the game. >> jesse, with all due respect. i know you played football. i have never been close to a gridiron. ever. but you're wrong. the patriots are going to win. my hometown team will win. but we still love you. >> i am laughing in your face if seattle wins. >> jesse, thank you so much. enjoy the game. >> he's going to be laughing in my face, perhaps. let's get to rob for another look at the weather. good morning, again, sir. >> by the way, the forecast for
7:21 am
that area, inconsequential, as paula mentioned yesterday. >> they have a dome. they may not use it. >> and a retractable field. it's amazing what they can do. we take you to lincoln, nebraska, no stranger to good football. go corn huskers. snow there. around that area, about five inches as this storm got cranking yesterday. and now it's in chicago. and will probably be an all-out blizzard. at least for chicago for a short time this afternoon. here's what we're thinking when it gets towards the northeast. we haven't talked much about this. watch the numbers. as the storm approaches. getting over the freezing mark by tomorrow morning. that's why we think we'll see a wintry mix. philadelphia, pretty much all rain. locals right over the area. right over all the populated areas. that's where the forecast gets a little bit interesting to say the least. this is for sure. it's cold behind this system. frigidly cold through the middle of the
7:22 am
