5:11 am
>> good morning, eye opener! randy: all right. thank you so much. good morning to the fifth graders of lincoln elementary school in winchester. they got a weather lesson from danielle and they're ready to come in and help cindy with the forecast. cindy: oh, good. come on in. we'd love to see what you're up to at school. record that wake-up call and go to the front page of wcvb.com and upload it to the you local section. the past model runs there's been a trend and we like to say the trend is our friend. the trend has been farther south with the worst of this storm. emily: this is good. cindy: it is good but look where the energy is now for our weekend storm that's just come onshore in the pacific northwest and we have time to watch this still. looks like it will be impacting our area saturday afternoon
5:12 am
the time line here, a little later than we were thinking 24 hours ago. the track remains critical to just how far north that area of low pressure comes and that will really determine the extent of the impact here, how much snow, when, and coastal impacts but it appears more and more likely now the targeted area for the heaviest snow with this storm is going to be down through the mid atlantic states, d.c., philly, baltimore area. southern new england will be on the edge of this. look at the sharp cutoff. i don't believe northern new england will bring much of anything out of this system but there will be travel impact heading down 95 throughout the weekend for sure. in the meantime we have cold air in place. look the a the temperatures, teens to 20 degrees right now. the wind is still kicking up. not as strong as yesterday, gusting close to 50 but still gusting over 20 miles per hour. obviously that's creating a wind chill. you want to dress for the wind chills in the single digits this morning, boston, lawrence, orange feels like it's below
5:13 am
digits in the cape as well and come up only in the teens this afternoon. a little better than yesterday but notice we will have sunshine and the actual temperatures recover to about 30 degrees this afternoon and may even touch the freezing massachusetts. high pressure giving us a quiet day today and also will direct this little disturbance here spreading snow throughout the ohio valley to our south tonight. with that going by to our south tonight, a few more clouds, temperatures hold in the teens to around 20 degrees. you see that period of clouds coming through the overnight hours but we aren't seeing snow out of this system and will start out with clearing skies tomorrow and a lot of sunshine in the forecast for thursday. pretty quiet throughout the end of the week but we'll watch the energy dive southward tomorrow morning and over texas picking up gulf of mexico moisture and by friday morning it's starting to get more intense and is interacting with the colder air spreading snow the northwest side of it in the wee hours saturday morning and well to our south but snowing in the d.c. area and snow spreading back all the way to tennessee and perhaps north georgia with
5:14 am
from this point, the question becomes how far north does it come before it head out to sea? our g.f.s. model, the american model, showing the highest snow totals up closer to new york city. the european model which is reliable has the heavy shows farther south and what i think will happen around here is we'll miss out on the heaviest of the snow but here locally the highest amounts will favor southeastern massachusetts and rhode island so we'll of course keep you posted on that. the other thing of importance with this storm coming up to the south and high pressure to the north it will give us the easterly wind and that's a concern because we have astronomical high tide due to a full moon and likely will be beach erosion and threat of coastal flooding due to the increased tides. lots to watch with the system and exits sunday afternoon and warms up early next week. did you see the 40's? emily: i did. some of the snow might melt. thank you, cindy. . olessa: so far a slow start, problem free ride in both directions.

5:17 am
for now until a court diseases on their legality. draftkings said the a.g.'s comments are based on fundamental misunderstandings. your health and stress this morning. there are some signs that tension is harming you more than you might think. like frequent headaches. they're often the result of clenching your jaw, grinding your teeth or tensing your neck, and we all do that from time to time. all things to watch out for. also keep an eye on body aches. could be a workout strain or could be your body increasing muscle tension because of stressful situations. and finally, that itchy skin might not be winter dryness. intense stress can actually increase skin inflammation, particularly on your arms or parts of your face. a number of things to watch out for. emily: good to know. still ahead, a city that can be entirely folded up and recycled. randy: ahead in eye poppers. erika? erika: new details on general electric's move to boston. the changes planned for the

in a lot of spots. the wind chill feels like 5 and below zero in worcester and wind chills mostly by the single digits in the morning. but by noon time will feel like they're in the teens and the wind chill holding in the teens around 20 this afternoon. look at that, up to 30 degrees by 3:00 this afternoon. so not as harsh as yesterday. high pressure is going to allow this disturbance to our south. kind of will slide by us tonight. the energy for our weekend storm is back here. there's plenty of time to watch this thing but looks like it will impact us later. later saturday into sunday morning. the track, critical in determining how much of anything we get but it is trending farther south nonetheless, snow, wind and coasting a impacts all a concern. let's get you to the roads and see how we're doing out there. olessa, quiet? olessa: so far so good. the southbound side moving in the distance and looking good in both directions. let's get to the map and check your ride. problem-free heading into

5:37 am
district. emily: donald trumpled picks up a key endorsement. first cindy with your forecast and tracking the weather coming this way. cindy: you want to talk about the wind and cold or this weekend's storm threat [everybody is like tell me about the weekend. the storm is not on the map yet and it's not that. that will stay to our south and it's the energy in the pacific northwest that doesn't look like a whole lot. just came onshore and watch where it heads. that energy will be diving south and over the next 24 hours it heads down towards texas so by tomorrow morning starting to pick up gulf of mexico moisture and by early friday morning it's blossoming with a storm interacting with colder air and look at the storm north and west of center. from here we shift to saturday morning at 3:00 a.m. and look where it is. very far to our south but it is snowing in the d.c. auerbach to the north and west and perhaps back to tennessee and georgia. from this point the questions are how far north does it head before it heads eastward?
5:38 am
trying to figure out at this point. the latest trend with our computer models are saying this is tracking farther south so the greater impact with the snow are likely going to be south of new york city down towards d.c., baltimore, philadelphia. this looks like southern new england will be on the edge of this and will be a sharp cutoff to the north so northern new england may not get anything out of this but certainly will be travel impacts if you're heading south on 95 through the upcoming weekend. for us locally the highest amounts of snow appear to be targeting southeastern most massachusetts but heavier, much heavier south of there and the amounts drop off the farther north you dough. it's not just the snow but will be wind concerns and especially beach erosion with the hot, full moon coming up as well. we have temperatures very chilly this morning. teens to around 20 degrees. the winds are still gusting over 20 miles an hour. wind chills throughout the day. single digits this morning, dress for wind chills in the teens this afternoon but notice the sunshine and we'll keep the sunshine going into tomorrow
5:39 am
but notice the temperatures don't change much. the winds die off by friday. let's get you to the roads now, olessa. are we quiet out there? olessa: we're watching a couple of things. 93 in sommerville, southbound side moving to the bottom of the screen and the volume is building. let's check the rest of the ride, 93 southbound looking good and watching a disabled car with one lane blocked by 125 in wilmington and so far you're in good shape. there's police activity with emergency crews taking out one lane at 128 northbound. but not causing much of a headache and so far the expressway is 20 from braintree to boston. trains and buses doing ok. randy? randy: breaking overnight, at least 21 people are dead and many students after gunmen stormed a university in pakistan. the attack led to a gun battle with police and army troops as well. the table has claimed responsibility for this attack

5:41 am
two men were shot in the violence. here's what we know, it happened around 2:30 yesterday afternoon. witnesses say it started as an train. a 29-year-old man was shot as he was exiting the train. the violence then spilling out on to the platform where a 43-year-old man was struck. train service was suspended between airport and boden for about two hours yesterday. police are now combing through surveillance footage hoping to identify the suspect in this who is still on the loose. we're live in east boston this morning, antoinette antonio, wcvb newscenter 5. >> there's an old saying, g.e., it brings good things to life and apparently it's also bringing big changes to boston's waterfront and it starts with the reopening of the old north avenue bridge. more specifically, the city is going to be kicking inasmuch as $100 million to get the old bridge up and running again. this money is beyond what the city already stated publicly it
