inches of snow. all the way up to cape ann and parts of plymouth county. it lookses like a coating to an inch. the cold is widespread for everyone before temperatures start to warm up midweek. we'll time out just how cold it gets right now as the "eyeopener" continues. >> now on newscenter 5's "eyeopener." randy: new revelations expected today in the case of a babysitter accused of the unthinkable. but one thing has to be decided first. the factor that could change the entire case. emily: a rough day for the patriots won't keep them out of the playoffs. but they're not in the spot they'd hoped for. the fallout from yesterday's loss. randy: a militia occupies federal land in oregon. the cause they're fighting for as they defend arson suspects. it's on the eye for this monday morning. >> you're watching wcvb, boston's news leader. good morning! this is newscenter 5's "eyeopener." emily: also on the eye this morning. it's cold enough out there for this. crews at the blue hills ski area were making snow overnight. but these brisk temperatures
5:01 am
won't last too long. good morning. i'm emily riemer. randy: and i'm randy price with cindy fitzgibbon. it's going to be cold for a little bit. cindy: you need cold to make snow. we have plenty of that to go around the next couple of days. you don't want to dress for what you're seeing this morning out the door because these are probably going to be our high temperatures for the day. right now it's not so bad. it's in the upper 20's to around the freezing mark. and the winds aren't all that active just yet but they are shifting around to the north and that is going to start to pull in much colder air. there are a couple of flurries out in the western part of the state right now. but these are associated with an arctic frontal boundary that is moving on through. this is the leading edge of much colder air. sing single digits near zero to our north. that's what is coming in as the day wears on. temperatures hold steady this morning. by late morning and noontime we're down a few degrees. it's noble the mid 20's by early this afternoon. sunshine this morning with some built-in clouds at the coastline this afternoon. look at the wind chill as we head towards this evening.
5:02 am
it is down in the single digits and teens. you want to dress for those dropping wind chills as the day wears on. those wind chills going down below zero tonight. in terms of any snow today, there will be some but it will be very localized right along the immediate coast and the cape as those northerly winds set up ocean-effect snow bands that will hover through plymouth county and also on the cape especially the mid and outer cape and nantucket. that is where we do have a winter weather advisory. it gets started late this morning and is with us through tomorrow morning. there could be several inches of snow which will create reduced visibility and slipper erodes down this way as well. the cold is a concern for everyone this morning. let's get you out to the roads. you're going to want that heater going as the day wears on. jeff larson in for olessa this morning. jeff: good morning, everyone. it's a quiet start to the commute in terms of instance dentsz but here's the promise. it will be a very busy rush hour this morning. if you're going to work give yourself that extra time that you haven't needed over the last couple of weeks because everybody is coming back to work and school this morning. we can already see that here as we look at the southeast expressway.
5:03 am
not jammed but an indication of that heavier volume we're going to deal with this morning. 93 southbound is a speed-limit ride at the moment. 10 min fritz 128 to downtown. across the zakim bridge. and that expressway ride is also only 10 minutes again at this point. that will get much busier and quite soon. route 24 and the turnpike are both moving very nicely. the mbta is is starting off with no reportedelays as services get underway. randy, back to you. randy: jeff, thank you. right now we are preparing to learn new details about a truly bizarre case. a babysitter accused of snatching a little girl right out of her home in the middle of the night. and that was just the start. emily: in just hours that suspect is expected back before a judge. the eyeopener's todd kazakiewich is live in newburyport with what we hope to learn. todd: emily and randy, good morning. we are hoping to learn where this bizarre case goes from here. as you may remember at the arraignment back in november, abigail hanna was ordered to undergo a psychiatric evaluation after her arraignment in november to determine if she's competent to stand trial.
5:04 am
at that time, a court clinician said she was experiencing hallucinations, expressed thoughts of suicide, and could not participate in her own defense. as you may remember, hanna is charged with kidnapping hamilton home, beating her, then dumping her by the side of a road. a couple driving by found the toddler even as a desperate police say she had cigarette burns on her body. the little girl's parents told police hanna had babysat for them before they fired her. we hope to learn more about this case in court today. reporting live, todd kazakiewich, wcvb, newscenter 5. randy: right now president obama is preparing for a critical meeting on gun control. today the president will meet with attorney general loretta lynch. he's expected to discuss potential executive orders to strengthen the nation's gun laws. that includes beefing up background checks required for gun purchases. on thursday, the president will participate on a town hall
5:05 am
virginia. emily: several developments to watch for today in the race for the white house. republican front-runner donald trump will hold a rally in lowell tonight even as he takes aim at a big name hitting the campaign trail. former president bill clinton will kick off a push in new hampshire on behalf of his wife. trump calling it the worst thing she could do as the war of words between the two front-runners heats up once again. hillary clinton took shots at trump over his comments on muslims in america. and trump fired back brushing off his appearance in a recruiting video for the terror group al shabaab. clinton: you hear all of this muslim americans. it's not only shameful and offensive-- which it is is-- it counterproductive and dangerous. trump: hillary clinton created isis with obama. emily: trump's rally at umass lowell is scheduled to start at 7:00 tonight. as for bill clinton, he will be in nashua at 11:30 this morning before heading to an early evening event in exeter. also today, the trump campaign
5:06 am
will hit the airwaves for the first time. "the washington post," which has seen the t.v. ad, says it focuses on islamic state militants and one point promising trump will, quote, "cut off the head of isis and take their oil." trump has vowed to spend $2 million a week airing the ad in early voting states like iowa and new hampshire. randy: six minutes after 5:00. right now a tense standoff on federal land in oregon. an armed militia taking control of a wildlife refuge. the eye's erika tarantal joins us with the move today that may ease tensions. erika? erika: randy, that's right. the takeover began saturday to rally support for two oregon ranchers facing extended prison sentences for arson. those ranchers are expected to turn themselves in today peacefully. the armed militia says this is a battle over federal land. some want it freed from federal oversight after dwight and steven hammond were sentenced to prison for lighting the land on fire to protect their own property from invasive plants. the government says they were
5:07 am
trying to cover up an incident of poaching the armed protesters say they want to restore rights to the people. >> it is the duty of the people to put that government back in its place. >> bringing in a militant view saying we're going to rise up if we don't get our way, we're going to used armed resistance, that's just not right. erika: it's unclear if the ranchers' move today will stem the issue. protesters say they're prepared to use force if necessary. schools in the area are closed for the week, and the sheriff is urging people to stay away. randy? randy: today the mbta control board will be talking fare hikes. the group already voted to allow fares to be raised as much as 10 percent. but they haven't settled on a final number which is expected this month. activists and lawmakers argue a 2013 law was intended to cap fare hikes at 5 percent every two years. house speaker robert deleo is making a pledge for the new year-- no new taxes.
5:08 am
he tells "the globe" the house won't propose any additional taxes or fees for the upcoming fiscal year. the state is facing an estimated billion-dollar budget gap. but deleo says residents should not pay more for state services. emily: the patriots are moving on to the postseason, but they're doing it in the number-two spot. and that loss to miami was painful. just ask tom brady. number 12 is now on the list of pats players who will have injuries monitored during the bye week. another thing we learned last night-- that first playoff game will be january 16 in foxborough. and some big additions could come with it. doug meehan will be live with that part of the story in our next half hour. a connecticut man arrested outside of gillette stadium with a slew of weapons is expected in court today. police say matthew bromson was drunk and acting suspiciously friday in an off-site employee parking lot. they found a stun gun, a sword, and a slingshot inside his car. bromson, who was was also the
5:09 am
charges. randy: thousands of bags of a more lethal batch of heroin are off the streets in western massachusetts. 9,000 bags of so-called "hollywood heroin" were seized this weekend in springfield. police say they were hidden in a fake car bumper. police had stepped up patrols after eight people overdosed on that batch of drugs. a massachusetts man is dead after this crash on a new hampshire highway. 24-year-old eliecarmiche alvarado of rockland was killed saturday night after he veered off route 89 in grantham and crashed into several trees. a female passenger was airlifted to the hospital with serious injuries. a child in a car-seat suffered minor injuries. emily: right now in waltham, investigators are trying to figure out what started a fire that damaged several businesses on moody street. the flames broke out yesterday afternoon inside a laundromat. firefighters say the fire moved quickly through a space in the ceiling. at one point firefighters were
5:10 am
because it wasn't safe. >> my daughter and i were over at shoppers cafe to watch the football game. the next thing you know, we saw the fire trucks pull up. the smoke was so thick billowing out of the building we couldn't even see the building from across the street so it got ugly kind of quick. emily: crews eventually got the fire under control. no one was hurt. right now a lawrence man is behind bars accused of dragging a state trooper with his car. police say it happened during a traffic stop along 93 south in medford. that's when the driver robert aybar allegedly took off dragging the trooper for a short distance. the trooper -- who was not seriously hurt -- jumped back in his cruiser and managed to chase aybar down. randy: the new carrier for "the boston globe" says it could take four to six months for home delivery to get back to normal. readers are angry after the paper shifted to a new delivery vendor. many subscribers haven't gotten a paper in over a week. "the globe" emailed customers,
5:11 am
listing more than 100 zip codes with delays this sunday. a half-dozen zip codes were in boston even after "globe" managers and staffers volunteered to take on the deliveries themselves. even neighbors have a story to tell. >> my neighbor got one on saturday. right after christmas. we didn't. i'm not quite sure what's going on. >> now it's eight days, and i'm just wondering if we're ever going to get our paper again. randy: in a statement, "the globe" says a.c.i. media took new staff of 600 carriers who need to learn new routes and new addresses. emily: 5:11. this morning we're getting a first look at the tragic "el faro" shipwreck. randy: the images from 15,000 feet under, and the mission they could revive. an armed robber gets the tables turned on him at a 7-eleven. the handy object a customer used to defend the store. emily: new this morning. germs where you least expect
5:12 am
them. restaurants' dirty secrets ahead. cindy? cindy: i am expecting some snow for the cape today. how much in those localized bands and the big cold blast on the way for everyone. that's ahead. first take a look at what you can expect when you head out the door this morning. temperatures in the 20's to around 30 degrees. don't dress for that. as the day wears on, wind chills will be dropping down through the teens.
5:13 am
is the economy rigged? well, the 15 richest americans acquired more wealth in two years than the bottom 100 million people combined. i'm bernie sanders, and i approve this message. my plan -- and the ultra-rich provide living wages for working people, the middle class unless we level with your help, as president,
5:14 am
>> from norwood, good morning, "eyeopener." randy: you've heard "sweet caroline." well, that's sweet callahan. awesome job, kids. emily: very creative. you can always sing your own tune in your own wake-up call. we appreciate that. just go to the front page of wcvb.com and upload it in the u-local section of our website. if you're singing something this morning, it would be something like brrrr. cindy: all right. this isn't so bad this morning, but by this afternoon, brrrrr. coldest air of the season is moving on in right now. it is going to send the temperatures dropping and wind chills below zero tonight and into tomorrow morning. all the while, that northerly wind bringing in the cold is going to help to induce some
5:15 am
will likely set up most prominently here on the cape and nantucket. that's where we do have a winter weather advisory, reduced visibility, slipper erodes, all the result of this snow that gets going later this morning. on radar this morning a can couple flurries west of worcester through the berkshires. not amounting to much at all. it's associated with that arctic front that is pushing through right now and and allowing that wind to shift around to the north and pull down much colder air. it is nine right now in syracuse. we just dropped below zero up in ottawa. and that's the cold that is going to pour on in. this morning not so bad. it's in the upper 20's in worcester. 31 in boston. 29 in beverly. it's got mid 20's in plymouth. we're right around freezing on the cape. not a lot of wind yet though. that wind is going to increase from near 10 miles per hour this morning up to close to 20 miles per hour this afternoon. that wind is just pulling in the cold so the temperatures hold steady or drop a few degrees as the day wears on with a mixture of sun and clouds. the wind chill is really what you want to dress for because by
5:16 am
is down in the single digits and teens. that's where it holds through the afternoon into the evening hours. during the overnight hours, this is 8:00 tonight, notice that wind chill is dropping below zero and that's what it will feel like out the door tomorrow morning. yes, serious cold coming on in. you can see by late morning, it's a blend of sun and clouds for most areas but there are clouds along the coast. and these are those ocean-effect snow bands setting up here mid and outer cape. as the wind goes more northerly, they may start to pivot back. cape ann, coastal parts of plymouth county and of course the cape and nantucket especially going to see these bands through the overnight hours and they'll really hang on at times into tomorrow morning as well. so that is going to allow the snow to accumulate. i think it's just a coating to up to an inch. cape ann through most of coastal plymouth county. once you get on to the cape here to the outer cape and nantucket, there is where we could see one to possible up to four inches of snow and localized bands. low temperatures tonight single digits around 11 in boston. 20's on cape cod. the cold is with us first thing tomorrow morning and that high
5:17 am
pressure settles right on top of us by wednesday. that is is going to shut the winds off and allow the temperatures to start to moderate as we head towards wednesday afternoon. we should be back up around 40 degrees gefnlt it's a milder stretch here through the end of the week. i just want to show you tomorrow morning out the door first thing wind chill s are are going to be sub zero. and through about 9:00 a.m., wind chills are still in the single digits. it's going to take us until noontime tomorrow to push those wind chills into the teens. so cold stuff throughout the entire day on tuesday. cold morning on wednesday. and then the warm-up begins. we're going to warm it up to around 40 degrees here by the weekend. we've got another system coming in so this one could bring us some rain mixed with snow especially in the higher elevations, something we'll watch. looks like a messy weekend after the cold blast the next couple of days. jeff: back to work for everybody on the roads too. cindy: that's one shock to the system. i think the weather will be the other one, jeff. jeff: look at the heavier volume on the expressway. it's been fairly light the last couple of weeks through the holidays. it's back to work, back to school and folks are hitting the roads. there's the southeast expressway. it's not a bad ride. we have no incidents to talk
5:18 am
about this morning but there's going to be a lot of company so keep that in mind if you're heading out this morning. you may need extra time since that's the case. now the ride at the moment on the mass turnpike is still in good shape. there aren't any delays of significance. it hasn't started to slow down too much. there's a lot of company out there. same story on 28 from 93 down to the turnpike. only 15 minutes which is close to the speed limit and route 3 is in fairly good shape as well. at the moment no incidents to talk about. again we can promise you a very busy commute as things get underway. emily, back to you. emily: jeff, thank you. in the right place at the right time. an armed robber at a convenience store in new york had no clue what was coming. as he's demanding cash from the clerk, a customer with a large flashlight rushes into store and starts hitting him in the head. this was all caught on camera at a 7-eleven just outside of buffalo. the robber managed to stumble away; police eventually caught him. randy: we are getting our very first look at the "el faro" cargo ship on the bottom of the atlantic ocean. this is new video of the wreckage, 15,000 feet deep in
5:19 am
the waters off the bahamas. the ship went down after the engine lost power during hurricane joaquin. 33 crew members were killed. the ntsb released the footage of the debris last night. cars that were part of the cargo are seen twisted and crushed along with office equipment on the sandy bottom. the video was captured by a deep-water, remote-controlled sub. three crew members with local ties were killed when the ship sank-- jeff mathias, keith griffin, and mariette wright. the ship's black box was never recovered. federal investigators are considering a new mission to try to find it. emily: economic headlines this monday morning. asian stocks plunged today, forcing markets in china to stop trading for the day. weak manufacturing data and tensions in the middle east weighing on the markets and driving up oil prices. right now u.s. stock futures are
5:20 am
down more than 250 points. randy: health insurance rates around the state are on the rise right now, and some premiums are soaring by rates in the double digits. "the globe" reporting that blue cross/blue shield premiums will go up an average 5 percent this year. fallon health premiums could go up as much as 17 percent. this comes as more and more insurers are dealing with the cost of expanding coverage under the affordable care act. the division of insurance will hold a public hearing on the issue next week. trying to stay social and healthy this new year? if you're dining out, here are three surprisingly dirty places in your favorite restaurant. first, the table. experts say significant numbers of bacteria, including e-coli, can live on tabletops. second, ice. cold drinks can be refreshing, but ice makers aren't cleaned nearly as often as they should be and may harbor bacteria. last, table condiments. things like salt and pepper shakers and ketchup bottles are
5:21 am
and if they are, it's usually with a rag used to wipe tables and seats. emily: i think i'll be dining in for a while. randy: very discouraging emily: you've heard of christmas sweaters, but one guy is upping the ante when it comes to festive and fuzzy. randy: the accessory he grows himself, ahead. morning. erika? a wedding ring lost at store has some distinctive features. the markings that could get it back to its rightful owner. and new information on the boy who fell off a ski lift this weekend. his father's claims about the safety risks at the mountain. and police say this man's license has been suspended 88 times. how he's accused of trying to p find your sweet spot today with dunkin's chicken apple sausage sandwich.

"hashtag watermelon boy" started trending on twitter. and of course there are not plenty of memes. who knows what it tastes like. i don't know if anyone else has ever eaten it. this, not and tieing. it's either very disturbing or very clever. an idaho man is raising money with his back hair. mike wolfe has his back shaved to match the month of the year and then creates a calendar. here the month is january.
