5:17 am
nantucket had 50-mile-an-hour wind gusts, rockport 48-mile-an-hour wind gusts. these were strong winds. the other thing is we were looking for snow. it's january. we're trying to find some. the snowfall totals as you realize were not that heavy out there. generally about an inch to an inch-and-a-half. you can see fitchburg picking up about an inch of snow. where was it? you had to go to the north. now this is a good thing to point out because it told us yesterday we had just enough cold air that we supported snowfall totals like four inches in portland or even up to a half maine. all we need is the cold air. now we have cold air that we get to talk about. also by the way yesterday rainfall totals anywhere between an inch to two inches of rain across the area. well today we don't have that much moisture but we do have the colder air to talk about. right now in boston it's 34 degrees. westerly wind at 14 giving us a wind chill index or how it feels out there of 25 degrees. check out these temperatures. a lot of places are below the freezing mark. a little bit of patchy black ice out there. not a big issue. we had all that water from yesterday.
5:18 am
the drain to we have a couple of spots that are slippery out there. temperatures to the south are still above the freezing mark. so we have morning sunshine this morning and afternoon clouds. high temperature today about 32-38. that's cooler than yesterday. and then tonight cloudy skies. some snow showers. 20-26 with a northerly breeze. so what's going to happen? let me give you an hour-by-hour breakdown. you'll notice as we go through the day today by this afternoon we have a lot of clouds and temperatures just barely above the freezing mark. watch this area down here to the south. starts to lift its way north ward. that is storm system which is way off shore, but it's got enough energy that it's throwing just a little wave of snow at us. this is 8:00 tonight. and then it kind of tries to fold its way back in overnight. this is the way the map looks at midnight. we have this area to talk about and another area out here to the west that wants to come sweeping through. two areas that are going to impact us over about the next 18 hours. by tomorrow morning at 6:00 a.m., we have some snow showers. look at that line forming right through there. that's a snow shower. snow shower is when you get a burst of snow and then it moves
5:19 am
that process you can pick up a quick inch of snow. eventually we do clear things out later on tomorrow night. how much snow? i think because you have really two events that will be affecting the coast i'm going a 1-3 category. inland probably a dusting to an inch. through the berkshires scraping off a little more moisture will put it back up to 1-3. these are not impressive snowfall totals but we haven't seen much snow this year. we've only had 1.2 inches of snow so far this season. today is 36 degrees with fading sunshine. that snow coming in here tonight. snow showers tomorrow especially during the morning commute. high temperature only about 28 degrees. you know, on tuesday, it's cold but it's the wind that will be the issue. the wind is 15-30 miles per hour. wind chill indices in the morning on tuesday will be about five degrees below zero. temperatures will modify a little bit and then we look for our next chance for some snow. this will be on saturday of next week. the interesting thing about this one was yesterday it was looking like it was staying to the south of us.
5:20 am
saying maybe closer to us than we we were orming naturally expecting. we put snow in the forecast for your saturday. it's still several days off. i think more importantly watch where you're driving later on tonight and tomorrow because we could see slippery spots out there tomorrow as well. antoinette and doug. doug: thank you. 5:20 is your time right now. a look at some of the stories we're following right now. antoinette: we're learning more about that deadly raid at hotel in the western african nation of burkina faso. an american missionary's mother now confirming her son was among those killed when al-qaida militants attacked the hotel and cafe. at least 28 people died in the attack. the victims were from 18 different countries. doug: the white house has declared a state of emergency in michigan freeing up to $5 million in federal aid to immediately assist with the public health crisis there. the drinking water in the city of flint and surrounding areas is contaminated with lead. fema will step in to coordinate responses and cover the costs

5:43 am
december was above average and so far the month of january is running above average. we had a high temperature yesterday of 40 degrees, but i think the week ahead is going to show up with more blue days as we start to talk about chilly temperatures moving back into the forecast. 34 degrees right now. westerly wind at 14. wind chill out there right now is 25 degrees. a little cool because of that wind. but otherwise it's really a pretty nice morning out there. we have a few temperatures outside the city which are below the freezing mark. watch out. there might be a little patchy black ice. all that moisture left over from yesterday. if you're traveling south of the city, i think most of the temperatures are above the freezing mark so not a big issue but not nearly as warm as what it was yesterday morning. yesterday morning we had temperatures in the 40's. so what do the high temperatures look like today? generally into the mid 30's for highs. look what will happen. in bedford tomorrow only 26. tuesday only 26 degrees. and, yes, there is a little snow in the forecast as we talk about tomorrow's forecast as well. over towards worcester, 31 degrees today. but you know it's going to get cold. tuesday morning down to the single digits, and the wind chills will be below zero on tuesday.
5:44 am
talking about. south shore, temperatures generally in the mid 30's today. bridgewater a high temperature on monday 28. only 26 degrees as we look at tuesday's forecast. and the cape, this is the best opportunity for seeing some snow. it's not only tonight but also tomorrow as well. you'll see the temperature dropping off but not quite as dramatically as what we've been seeing inland. overtonight tonight, we will be seeing the lows dropping off in most locations into the 20's. that's just the beginning of the cool air coming in. we've also going to talk about snow. this system here and this system here. both of them are pretty weak. but as they move through or at least this one is going to be well off shore. so it's going to give us a little bit of snow. here is the timeline. a lot of clouds this afternoon. by about 8:00 we start to see moisture working its way in off the shoreline. you see what happens. it pushes its way inland. it may be mixed with a few sprinkles. it means we get this band setting up along the coast around midnight which would mean snow from cape ann to cape cod and include the city of boston. we wait for part 2 of the storm and that comes through tomorrow
5:45 am
we have two events that will be happening. but when you add them all up together they don't amount to a whole lot. about 1-3 inches of snow along the coast. you have to watch this. this type of situation sometimes you get these little bands that can set up. you can actually get a little bit more than that. also because they're very difficult to forecast, you might not get anything out of the whole deal. then inland a dusting to an inch. 1-3 mainly because of those snow showers moving through. here's your seven-day forecast. we'll show you what will be happening. today 36. tomorrow 26 degrees. watch out for snow showers especially during the morning commute. it's cold on tuesday, and it's windy which will make it feel even colder out there. we get plenty of sunshine back for wednesday, thursday and friday. but another system may impact us a little bit on saturday. that could give us some rain or some snow. yesterday-- now it's starting to look more like it will get us. we'll keep a close eye on that one. that's not until next weekend. antoinette: thank you, mike.

this morning we are highlighting our new series spot-lighting local people and companies on the cutting edge of their fields. mike: first up new state-of-the-art technology that can help save lives in a mass shooting. mike: on the battlefield knowing where an enemy gunshot comes from saves lives and cuts through the fog of war. using special microphones, it was proven hundreds of times in iraq and afghanistan. chris connors: knowing that potentially we could save lives here in the u.s. as well as doing it overseas is something that's quite rewarding. mike: chris connors is c.e.o. of raleigh-based shooter detection systems. they took the technology they used in the battlefield and brought it in to the classroom. it was first installed in methuen school and went through two years of testing. now this technology is in a few dozen buildings across the country. connors: the gunshot detection sensor that we install in the schools are either in the ceiling or on the wall. mike: this is all they are. connors: this is exactly what it
5:48 am
very benign. can't notice it. in fact, when we walked in, i don't think anyone even saw it. mike: we had to ask where it connors: that's the intent of the design. mike: it uses both infrared and audio sensors. the company says it's 100% reliable with no false alarms. here's how it works. this is only a drill. a gun is fired. instantly the sensor identifies the location. that information is quickly sent displaying on a map of the building. it shows the exact location of the gun fire. dispatcher: second floor room 226. mike: simultaneously a warning is sent to all responding officers on their cell phones. police know what's going on inside cutting down on the confusion. they don't have to wait to enter a building. precious seconds that can save lives. chief joseph solomon: how long does it take you to hide and get on your phone and call 911. you're emotional. the dispatcher calms you down. you're three, four, five minutes into the call where instantaneously, like that, when the alert goes off, we know where it came from. mike: average cost to retrofit a school is about $25,000-30,000.
5:49 am
antoinette: you have to wonder how parents are reacting to having this in the school. mike: i was surprised at first as well. once parents learn about the detection system they want it in their schools of it's been installed in convention centers, courts, utility companies and soon it will be announced in a major sporting facility as well. antoinette: very interesting. we look forward to your next piece, mike. doug, back over to you. doug: top of the line bicycles made in mass. i found out what's so unique about the must-have bikes coming out of this watertown company. in the meantime, the city cam. it's still dark. is snow in the forecast?

5:53 am
ever the same. rob: the attention to detail achieved in several ways. rob: one of them is through experience. a lot of people back here, as i said before, have been building bikes their entire adult lives. doug: another example of the craftsmanship can be found in something as simple as a weld. rob: we're going for what they call the stack of dimes which is like a stack of dimes just pushed over. it takes years of practice to be able to produce that. doug: to date this local company with 35 employees has produced over 30,000 one-of-a-kind bikes. they want these locally built bikes to be owned in every one of the seven continents on "the globe". so goes the name seven cycles. right now, about 40-percent of the company's bike sales are overseas. one of the largest markets is south korea. custom bikes do come at a premium -- prices start at around 4,000 dollars. antoinette: they're all one of a kind.
