6:25 am
it kind of tells the story from coastline. look at this, nantucket and hurricane forces at 73 miles per hour gusts. rock port picking up gusts over 50. given the strength of the wind i'm surprised there wasn't more outages. winds are still gusting but it's not nearly as strong as yesterday but still adding chill. we just had about a half hour ago can, they are doing a great job and most are without power. next thing we're going to watch is the tide if it comes up for minor pocket and coastal flooding. back to you ! all right. thank you so much. half a foot of snow in boston is enough to cause slick streets. most people took this storm in

the system, waking up to a clear and cold start to the day. satellite radar pictures show everything out by noon. near freezing for the high temperatures, but it's deceiving sunshine because it's so chilly. the winds subside a bit, a little bit of a gust to the north stays, especially on the cape and islands. danielle is live in sandwich. that's where we had the jackpot zone, but you're also tracking the wind and concern for coastal flooding later on. >>reporter: it is a snowy scene, pamela, absolutely. we've got a foot in parts of the cape, over that in a few communities.
