7:03 am
here's what's going to happen. the timing of this. we come out this morning on into later this evening, as the low pressure makes its way up the coast it intensifies, it continues to deepen. we're looking at snowfall rates 2 to 4 inches per hour. thunder snow possible. that's how intense this will be. wind gusts of 65 miles per hour. in order then as we go through tomorrow morning into tomorrow afternoon, boston you're involved, by 1:00 you've got 2 to 4 inches of snowfall per hour. the thunder snow continues, white-out conditions and look at winds, wind gusts of 80 miles per hour. that's why we're worried about major coastal flooding, power outages a big possibility. look at the snowfall totals. you add those winds to snow from 12 to 25 inches of snow, some areas as much as three feet. you could be looking at drifts of snow, guys, anywhere from 4

7:32 am
nbc's tom costello is at washington's reagan national, tom, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. we have a lot of rain, win this morning. it's going to turn in snow later in the afternoon. them as it does, as it hits the mid-atlantic and the northeast corridor we've got several airports that are going to likely be hit hard over the next 48 hours. washington, baltimore, up to philly, of course all three new york airports likely affected, hartford into boston, then all the way into maine. you go west, residual effects in columbus, ohio, pittsburgh, likely chicago as well. and amtrak also worth watching because 720,000 ride every single day. amtrak says they are going to watch their 457 miles of track, 1200 bridge, it's possible they will have to close down certain lines and cancel certain trains over the course of the next 48 hours. so, this may be as calm as it gets before the storm. they were expecting snow in
7:33 am

7:34 am
other tips, you want to have an emergency kit. make sure it's full of water and blankets in case your power goes out. you need flashlights, battery, non-perishable food and the manual can opener. you want to make sure that you keep heaters and generators well ventilated so you don't start fires or carbon monoxide poisoning, make sure your car is filled with gas now. and in case your power goes out the pipes can freeze, so keep a little drip in your fau street relieve some of the pressure so your pipes don't burst. and there is a good thing to note. keep this and write this down. if your power goes out for an extended period of time and you feel unsafe text the sherd shelter to 43362 and they will give you a list of the nearest shelters. and one more thing. if you've got one of these laying around, a good old land line, get it out now, make sure you have a land line set up in
7:35 am
your phone because if your cell phone goes dead you can't reach out. so this is always a very good classic standby to keep yourself safe. >> all right, dylan, thank you so much. we'll talk to you in a bit. so, let's take a look. as far as snowfall here in new york city, record events, well, the number one storm was february 11-12, 2006. almost 27 inches of snow. the blizzard of 1888, matt and i remember that, 21 inches of snow. what actually constitutes a blizzard? here's what it takes. this is boston also. look at some of these top five amounts. we're looking at that. 27.6 inches. a blizzard defined. we see a blizzard as having more than three hours or more sustained wind and gusts 35 miles per hour, blowing snow, dropping visibility, less than a quarter mile, and we expect that to happen. first of all, we're going to get from 1 to 2, maybe 3 feet of snow from bangor to hartford, boston, new york city.
7:36 am
and we've got coastal flood watches and warnings, why, because as this system winds up, the winds are going to be such a massive problem with this. we have hurricane force wind warnings, just off boston all the way to nantucket. these winds will be really strong, there's going to be a lot of blowing and drifting snow, drifts up to 4 to 5 feet of snow. so coastal flooding, hurricane force wind and heavy snow. it's a bad combination. stay off the roads starting in 7:36. good monday morning to you. i'm meteorologist christina loren. live look at the san francisco bay, beautiful painted sky overhead. look at how pretty you're waking up in point reyes this morning, just spectacular conditions. another beach day if you can get out there. temps will climb into the upper 70s at some of your beaches especially down in santa cruz. we'll hit 67 in san francisco, and 70 degrees in the north bay. as we get into it tomorrow you might need to bring your umbrella south of the golden

>> yes. >> think about it. you were going to go for the fried calamari the burger with all of that special sauce on top with the top bun with a lot of fries without the vegetable. you probably would have had the second glass of wine and the dessert. >> i would have. >> you saved maybe more than 1,000 calories. >> that's incredible. she would love it. i'm sure he would love it. joy, thank you. >> all right, ladies. good job. if joy was not sitting right there? >> if i was in my fat pants, i would order everything. >> it's simple and allowed you to experience a delicious restaurant but at the same time you saved major calories. >> moving the fries was critical. it's like a shaming thing. >> now we are going to go into

8:41 am

8:42 am
extending their hand for to you shake. what do do you? >> it's a subject recently covered by reader's digest and matt's diary. what's the best way to handle the situations? we go to natalie, an nbc news medical contributor. we have two perspectives. the health perspective and the should you, shouldn't you. the sick coworker. what do you do when you have a coworker who is sneezing and coughing? >> you want to be the good samaritan. you have cough drops and cough medicine nearby and hand sanitizer to share with those who are sick. you are helping to prevent the spread of germs. >> stay home? >> you are sending a message as you say you shouldn't be here. >> you are. if you are the boss definitely say go home. if you are saying i want you here go home. you are doing us a favor. >> i immediately start to be the
8:43 am
detective and i will walk over and say how long have huh that cough? do you have a fever or a sore throat? i find myself taking a medical history. am i more concerned about them or their ability to spread the disease to everybody else. it's more the latter. i want to gauge their level of infectivity. >> you are on a plane and the person next to you as i had runny nose. do you say something about it? do you turn and do what i do and put your back to that person? medically speaking, how dangerous is that? >> you are not sharing utensils or anything other than the arm rest. it's ft because my first instinct is to turn away. the way that person will infect you is if they cough and it gets into your mouth. you keep your hand sanitizer there and use it over and over and over again so anything they touch or sneeze on you don't touch and bring it to your face.
8:44 am
>> woo he a funny thing happen to us at the globes. somebody said they are sick and want to shake your hand. >> a very well-known actress gave me a hug and kiss and held my hand and -- >> she said i had the worst flu and have been throwing up and we did the entry. i said thank you so much and good luck. she said i shouldn't shake your hand i'm sick. she and matt had already. >> as a person who is healthy, you never want to refuse but you get yourself to the wash room to scrub up so you don't spread it to others. if you are sick i don't feel well today and i don't top the get you sick. >> protect yourself and do it in a way that has an element of class. >> don't give them the cold shourder because they have a cold. >> what about the double dipping. >> it's super bowl weekend.
8:45 am
>> with friends and family i draw attention to the fact that i flipped my carrots over and double dipped. have everyone take it on a pleat and make an announcement if somebody is sick in the room. >> thank you so much. coming up next the dos and don'ts of getting a new dog. first, this is "today" on nbc.

8:48 am
right time for you for the next 10 or 15 years. that's how long you hope a dog will live at least. >> how much can i spend and you are not talking about money. you are talking about time. >> a lot of time with initial training and ongoing training and veterinary care and grooming and giving them love. the initial idea of getting a puppy is charping, but remember that they rely on you for all their needs. >> it is costly. pets are costly. the vet bills and the feeding. >> at least $700 a year and probably more. often times there is emergency vet care that rizs that greatly. >> i will talk about adopting in a moment. if you are looking for dogs the american kennel club divides them into the toy, terrier, herding, hound working, sporting and nonsporting group. how do you know what's right for your family? >> start with a wish list.
8:49 am
sit down and paik hay list of what their dream dog will be. things like the activity level of the dog. a dog to go running with or hang out with or are you into grooming or spending monogrooming? you can start by going to local shelters and going to dog shows and talking to people about the dogs they admire. >> know the make up of your family when you decide between a puppy and an adult dog. >> people want puppies, but this is a 9 week old and they are adorable but there is a lot of time spend on training where as if you consider adopting an adult dog, they think well how long am i going to have the dog? you know what you are getting and know their personality and the dog is house train and you can give them a loving second chance.
8:50 am
>> you want to transition your home. you have things you have to think about. >> a few things people have to get. bowls and leash and collar or harness, but toys that are sure to keep your dog busy when you can't occupy their time. these toys that are foodstuffable are great. cheeseburger appreciates this. have an appropriate confinement space. a lot of people feel uncomfortable with crates, but if you feed your dog there, they are likely to enjoy that. >> my dog loves the crate and thinks it's a safe haven. >> cheeseburger you were a hit. natalie, first this is "today" on

25 inches or 9:12. good monday morning to you. i'm meteorologist christina loren. taking a live look at sunol. this is a time lapse. you can see when i take it live, it is still a little on cloudy side. tomorrow at this time, we're going to see a mostly cloudy sky across the board. enjoy the sunshine today. 68 degrees in the tri-valley. 71 degrees in the south bay. showers creeping from the south to the north into this afternoon. a better chance as we head through tomorrow night. that's your latest weather. >> ready for this? let's hold our breath. i do that because it may be one secret to not getting sick this winter. we will reveal the trick doctors
9:14 am
and nurses themselves use to stay healthy. tricks of the trade after in a race, it's about getting to the finish line. in life, it's how you get there that matters most. like when i found out i had a blood clot in my leg. my doctor said that it could travel to my lungs and become an even bigger problem. so he talked to me about xarelto®. >>xarelto® is the first oral prescription blood thinner proven to treat and help prevent dvt and pe that doesn't require regular blood monitoring or changes to your diet. for a prior dvt i took warfarin, which required routine blood testing and dietary restrictions. not this time. while i was taking xarelto®, i still had to stop racing, but i didn't have to deal with that blood monitoring routine. >>don't stop taking xarelto®, rivaroxaban, unless your doctor tells you to. while taking xarelto®, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto® may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto® can cause serious bleeding, and in rare cases, may be fatal. get help right away if you develop unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling.
9:15 am
if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto®, watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto® tell your doctor about any conditions such as kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. xarelto® is proven to reduce the risk of dvt and pe, with no regular blood monitoring and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto® was the right move for me. ask your doctor about xarelto® today. tonight, every dish came out of the cupboard. literally. can this mess be conquered by a little bit of dawn ultra? yes. one bottle has the grease cleaning power of two bottles of this bargain brand. dawn, it's amazing what a drop can do.
