5:53 am
the west and lingering snow showers to the east will get your snow totals into a half a foot plus category to slow you down and see the school closings and hear about delays as well but delays for you behind the wheel evidence of that right now right? >> you are right. let's first begin with the bronx there is now several accidents the first blocking two lanes on the southbound side of the thruway. it's hall place for you and also an accident at 233rd street delays back to mcclain avenue so stick with the parkway as you navigate through the area. it's still a slow ride but better than if you are taking the major deacon. also a southbound accident at barto avenue back to pelham avenue. 45 miles per hour speed restriction in place between the delaware memorial and

5:55 am
>> i'm glad it's happening on a friday. a lot of people are just going to take the day off. unfortunately i got to get into the city so hopefully the snow will stop in time so i can get home on the long island railroad. >> how are the roads so far? >> getting bad in a hurry. it's really not that good out there. it's heavy and wet so icing up real fast you know? >> what is the warning for drivers hitting the road this morning? >> drive slow and make sure you have a lot of coffee. [laughter] >> definitely some good advice. we also want to show you video much the southern state parkway. we shot that just a few minutes ago and you can see conditions there not much better. the lanes also packed with snow. it's also sticking there and it is slick so if you are heading out this morning the message is just be prepared for some tough conditions. you want to leave early and take it slow. we are live in bay shore this morning ilana gold cbs 2 news. >> be careful out there.

trip down to the jersey shore. my concern for them is you are going to see it linger a little longer and bigger totals when it's all said and done but dr. frankie has got 7th graders with a two hour delay opening. not everyone reversed their pajamas. remember that old trick? 31 in lin brooke and we are seeing heavy wet snow beginning to stick and i want to share this picture. kind enough of elainea to send this from brooklyn. this is really start to stick on elevated surfaces. roadways starting to get slippery and sidewalks as well. that change is under way so slow things down, factor in extra time, make sure your lights are on and get ready for more accumulating snow. this is our view outside our front window and we have wet sidewalks but that's going to
6:03 am
33 with some fog in the area as well. numbers cold enough for almost a total snow now that south shore happening onto a bill lit of rain but that's mixing in. north and west we have numbers that are actually a little warm warmer where the potential is there for icing as well reflected by the pink but watch that retreat and change over to light snow. it's light to moderate snow through parts of new jersey, middlesex and county seeing heavier snow. more of the south shore has caked over to snow for you as well. problem is it kind of sits there for hours. you are the last to clear out this afternoon and that's why we anticipate the bigger totals for you possibly 6 to 8-inches right there the bulls eye so to speak. but 4 to 6 flirting with the city in fact parts of brooklyn and queens. staple deal. remember the last storm from staten island into the bronx there was a big changes far as totals. now that focus more from east
6:04 am
north and west a trace to maybe an inch or two. don't forget it's very cold this afternoon so with those cold air settling in tonight we could see refreezing and saturday and sunday look a lot better, cool and quiet tomorrow after an icy start. very nice for your sunday. questions about next week the period late monday into tuesday. big low very close to our area looking at the possibility of more accumulating snow but it's accumulating right now and slowing us down. right alex. >> you are right john especially if you are traveling here we have the right lane blocked on the northbound side due to a car stuck in the snow there. no real delays through the area yet but hopefully this isn't an indication of our morning commute. give yourself plenty of time because if you travel further south in the bronx there's an accident blocking two lanes on the southbound side of the thruway and continuing your ride south another accident at 233 233rd street.
6:05 am
