with, we see a little bit of denver. that's the storm in its infancy. you can see it circled there. it has a future. overview. you can see the idea of the timeline. afternoon. saturday night, and first thing on sunday, that's the time to watch, the potential of snow and what's still critical is how far north the storm will track. if it takes a truck a little further north, this is not the most likely scenario, that's a closer pass and we have a greater potential for heavy snow and also the winds would be even stronger but if it takes a path more to the east which keys it further south then we're only on the northern edge of the snow around boston, so we don't get as much snow. not quite as much wind but we can still get a good deal of wind even without getting that much snow because the storm will be pretty potent. here's how it gathers the moisture in the gulf and the snow area. that's 3:30 friday afternoon so it will get into washington
midnight in philadelphia, by dawn in new york, and then it's going to have a struggle to get much further north than that that's where the ball game will be played. this time we're on the edge. it's an easier forecast in a general sense for washington. they are going to have major snowstorm but for us, look at saturday afternoon. know around southern connecticut. begins to lift northward during saturday afternoon. but how far north does it get? before it then retreats to the east. that's where the game will be played? right now my thinking is north of the mass pike, smallest amount of snow, possibly very little if any. then you may get a little sout of the pike but the greatest chance of getting some meaningful snowfall accumulation as of right now would be from hartford to providence, to marshfield, from there south, the greatest chance i would say right now of getting a few to several inches. if the track lifts northward then it could be more significant than that. if it stays where it is, or where it appears to be or even
get shifted further south. so that's where we are right now. you can see where the heavy snows will be. nation's capitol is involved and that's why there is a blizzard watch in effect for them. it will be a big snowstorm for them. no two ways about it. for us, we still have some wind gusts that are pretty impressive. impressive enough so that it would be windy on saturday because we now get a northeast bend with the storm. what i wanted to show you, look at the wind gust to 40 on block island. we still get significant wind with this. especially the coast, south coast and cape, so we'll watch places like plymouth and chatham. the most critical high tide is the one around 11:00 a.m. on sunday. that's when we would have the biggest amount of water. let's check out the next seven days. quiet until then. breezy and cold tomorrow. saturday afternoon, saturday night and early sunday, the heaviest snow would be south of boston potentially, wind on the coast.
it all winds down sunday morning so sunday afternoon will probably be nice and sunny here and there is still a chance there could be a touch of snow. i'm not positive about that for the patriot-denver game. temperature probably in the 30's. an update at 7:00. meteorologist, harvey leonard. >> sports center 5 with mike. >> hi, everybody. many coaches work their whole career to compete in just one conference championship game. belichick is in double figures in the pennsylvania -- in the penultimate game. he's won six, all with the patriots. and reaching this point, never, ever, ever gets stale. >> number one seed, beat us earlier in the year.
-- need our best game on sunday. working toward preparation and execution, the very best it can be. that's what it will take. >> wednesday is patriots day in foxborough which is where bob halloran has been camped out all day. what do you have for us? bob: top quarters of all time, tom brady one and peyton manning, two. around here, a lot of patriots fans like to claim that peyton manning is overrated, and that he's now aging, and the new one is that he's noodled arm but he looks pretty good beating them two years ago, 400 yards passing and the patriots are not about to start underestimating peyton manning. >> i think playing someone 17 times is pretty cool especially someone as great as him to play against, those pms led teams, you've got to play 60 minutes and you'll be in for a tough game. >> after each game you look back and usually you see two
plays throughout the game in different situations. give their team chances, and, you know, being on the defensive side, it's our goal to try to make sure tom looks better at the end of the game. >> two great football players with a lot of history. you respect the things they have done, but, you just try and focus your best on what you can do, to play well. >> and as much as tom brady has dominated the head-to-head match-ups, in the playoffs, they are just 2-2 against one another, so sunday will be the tiebreaker. back to you. >> every time people -- connecting with some of the other titans of sports. chamberlain, frazier, and, of course, around here, bird magic. >> grew up a huge larry bird and fan. had some of those old posters of larry and magic in short-shorts. i just, like i said, i've felt very fortunate to
years like i have, and i know how hard i've worked to play this long, and so when i look across at the new england patriots and see tom brady as the kwufrt i know how hard he's worked as well. >> always says the right thing, doesn't he? >> he's not even humming the nationwide tune. >> we're going to hitch up our team and head out to denver and live into monday morning. >> we look forward to it. we look forward to it. very good. elevated that tune. >> patriots play in denver this weekend. >> coming up on newscenter 5 at 7:00 -- >> i can understand why pregnant women are scared. >> a new virus spread by mosquitos and the government is now warning pregnant women countries. >> new at 11:00, the new push to
marco rubio. rhe ran
for senate sayingr he opposed amnesty... then he flipped, chuck schumer to co-author the path he threatened to vote against it. and then voted for it. he supported his own dream act and then he abandoned it. marco rubio. just another washington politician you can't trust. jeb bush. he's a leader, so you always know where he stands. right to rise usa is responsible for the
belichick said. never underestimate peyton manning. >> he's got to get on the plane and get out there. >> he'll be fine. >> i think we should be talking about this off-day. >> anyway, for us, we'll watch saturday afternoon, saturday night and early sunday. that will be the storm's closest path. the biggest effects will be south of us. >> a little warm-up next week. >> early next week looks mild. >> there are two democratic visions for regulating wall street. rone says it's okay to take millions from big banks and then tell them what to do. vmy plan --
