the whole question for us, how far north is the snow shield going to get? especially the heavy snow shield before it gets shunted east. the trends have been more to the south with time so i'm gaining confidence that at least boston and points north will probably not be involved in the heavy snow from this storm. it's not a definite thing but i do want to say within our area the highest amounts are likely across connecticut, rhode island, southeastern mass, closer to the south coast but even there, i'm not talking about anything resembling what's likely to fall much further south around washington and baltimore. the smallest amount of snow would be north of the pike. very little or close to nothing. there are also winds and tides to be concerned with. >> another wild day trading the dow dropping 249 points after all the turmoil. at one point it was done more than 500 points following

5:17 pm
especially raleigh, and a lot of snow in portions of virginia. a lot of virginia will have a big snow as it moves north. notice as it continues to move north it has a big easterly component to it so for us, this time we're near the northern edge. the easier forecast in a general sense is washington and baltimore. they are going to have a major snowstorm. there is no two ways about it but will it be connecticut and rhode island and southeastern mass and not boston or will the heaviest snow stay south of the entire southern new england coast? those options are still open at this time. in terms of actual official watches and warnings, check this out. this is actually a blizzard watch which includes the nation's capitol and baltimore, and that's going to go into effect not now, of course, as the storm approaches and will stay until 6:00 a.m. on sunday. otherwise, we have this purple area here or pink. that's a winter storm warning but the blue area is a winter storm watch which probably will

warning over time that would include philadelphia and possibly new york. now here's one of our computer models showing snowfall accumulation potential, as the storm is over by sunday evening for sure. but notice where the jackpot area is. a lot of virginia, a portion of west virginia, up to about maryland or so. notice there is still heavy snow around philadelphia. new york city gets a decent amount of snow but on the edge. gets into southern connecticut moderate amounts and tapers off rapidly to the north so north of the pike there may be next to nothing in terms of accumulation. that's probably what we'll be dealing with. a sharp cutoff in accumulation from south to north. this is a look at it closer up. this little area may just be some light snow or flurries that may occur in part as the wind increases saturday out of the northeast and into saturday night. but again, if you're talking about traveling, and you're planning on traveling toward the new york city, philadelphia, or washington area then you will run into potentially different

significant there likely than here. that's the snow part of it. but there still will be some wind and some tides to be concerned with especially along the coast south of boston so places like scituate, plymouth, vineyard, chatham and nantucket, two high tides, one is saturday night roughly around midnight. the other one is sunday in the late morning. it could be the sunday tide that would be more problematic because it's higher astronomically. we'll watch the entire coastline as we go out in time. in the meantime, right now it's 30 degrees in boston. 24. we have a wind chill of 16. we want to show you the next seven days. it's breezy and cold tomorrow. about 30 and it's bright and dry on friday around 30. it is then saturday afternoon and saturday night, centered on saturday night and early sunday, it will make its closest us. there could be snow especially south of boston and it's even possible around the cape and
5:20 pm
component to the wind. we still have many factors but the leaning is that we'll be on the edge, instead of being in the heart of it. >> it will be very interesting to see how d.c. handles it because we know they shut down with an inch or two. >> it will be tough. it's never good to mess around on the job. >> unless you're allowed to but in this situation, the move a valet made that ended up with the lam be rgini. >> new at 6:00, donald trump continues his dominance in new hampshire but tedything nature's promise is so wholesome... and it doesn't take the whole paycheck. stop & shop's exclusive nature's promise. eat well for less. my stop & shop. shop with ease at peapod.com use code: tv2016
