4:30 pm
it is l going to abvery tricky call. possibly into the storm, itself. but check out the radar and you'll see that is a wall of snow on radar, already into southeastern pennsylvania. on the ground, it's snowing hard as you saw. in washington it has reached baltimore and will be moving into philadelphia to start before too long. now, i want to give you an idea what to expect with a timeline. there we are 11:00 tonight. snow has likely commenced already in new york city. they're likely to get hit hard as well. then we get to about 7:00 tomorrow morning. the northern edge of the snow is hartford to providence. that snow is going to get up to about the mass pike. then it is going to struggle to move northward from there. we keep telling you about being on the northern edge. the deeper purples you see, southern half of connecticut, that would be the heavy snow. right along the coast there might be a little mixing for a while because of the easterly wind. eventually it should be straight snow there as well.
4:31 pm
somewhat heavier to the south. 11:00 tomorrow night snowing hard over southeastern mass and the cape and that can continue into the wee hours of the morning sunday. latest thinking on how much to expect and whatever you are looking at here could change and second of all we may have an even sharper change in amounts over a smaller number of miles than we can forecast. right now north of the pike, north of boston i'd say 1 to 3 inches of snow. south of the pike and south of boston 3 to 6 inches of snow. from about providence to plymouth or marshfield on south 6 to 10 inches which includes the cape and the island. even more for new york city, philadelphia, boston, and washington. part of the area on the northern edge of the snow and part of the area on the northern edge of the heavier snow. it is still a very fluid situation that could change as we get closer to and even into the storm itself. we will stay on top of it for you. >> people living on the cape
4:32 pm
let's get to newscenter 5 live in sandwich with the concerns. >> they expect significantly more snow here but it is not the snow but the wind and the surf that is a concern. this beach has been eroded in the last decade. this sand has been placed into the system and will erode in time. i don't think we'll lose very much but it is going to get moved around a little bit. in the long run we'd like to be able to predict that. >> town residents spent nearly $3 million rebuilding the dune here at the beach and now we're -- they're using monitors to try and see how the weather is going to affect the beach

4:34 pm
d.c. up through new york and fairly close to us. d.c., 18 to 24 inches of snow. you get the general theme. everybody is going to get probably a foot, someplaces two feet of snow. this is going to be incredible because you remember washington, d.c., their record if they get to 28 inches is the most snow they have ever seen in their entire history. these are pretty impressive totals we'll be talking about and many more details as we continue. >> because of the cities involved the storm is having a major impact on travel. a united airline plane sliding off the runway in chicago's o'hare airport this afternoon. that plane with 179 passengers onboard. then got stuck in the snow. no one was hurt. but right now hundreds of flights have been canceled. the rails are also expected to be impacted. let's go live to logan right now. >> the ripple effect will snarl travel this weekend. today lots of passengers were rushing to reschedule flights.

>> we are closing in at quarter to 5:00 and you are looking live at the traffic. the traffic going through the ridge into town, those headlights are moving fine. you can see the tail lights are not. it is obviously friday evening. slowing traffic. the feeder roads on the left are also busy so traffic is as it normally might be. let me hit the update button. you can see what is up around here. you know the drill where it is red it is slow. it is red through the city. more and about the same, 128, maybe a little tick left. moving okay. 95 the newton corridor a little bit, the tolls will slow you a little bit but a good 20, 20 plus mint ride from the weston tolls to 495. that's traffic right now. the old northern bridge in boston is coming down. the coast guard says it is
4:46 pm
collapse and worry about the potential collapse comes as the city prepares to spend $100 million to build a new bridge tied to g.e.'s relocation to boston. the current bridge is considered historic and the city is looking for ways to preserve pieces of the structure itself. let's take you live around aret ya as we bring harvey leonard in here. it snows in washington but i understand the president is hunkered down and everybody is being prepared for what could be an historic snowfall. >> it does look like if i had to ballpark it i'd estimate about two feet of snow which is not bad. maybe two or a little more. >> it is still going to flirt with us. >> that's a good way to put it. people watching us from southern new hampshire, watching from us cape cod, new hampshire may never see a flake of snow. martha's vineyard is under a blizzard watch. the further north you are the less the effect. the further south the greater the effects. that is the general idea. let's show what we're talking about with all of these wasmsfwaffs and warnings in effect all over the place.
4:47 pm
nation's capital you can see they're under a blizzard warning. also long island is. much of new jersey. and then when we get into our area, very interesting. right over here, the vineyard. the idea is the southern part of our area is going to get the heaviest precipitation. therefore the heaviest snow which will reduce visibility the most and the vineyard is furthest south. why isn't nantucket included? because nantucket may get more rain mixed with snow at times which will raise visibility. the visibility requirement may not be met. on the vineyard there is certainly a chance the three hours or more visibility could drop to a quarter mile or less, winds frequently gust over 35 miles per hour, and it would be in periods of heavy snow. for much of the rest of the area you see in pink which is the southern half of rhode island, southern connecticut, southeastern mass, the cape, the waters of the southshore, that is a winter storm warning. so that is still a significant situation. then we have a winter weather advisory for amounts more modest but still significant.
4:48 pm
rhode island, and the rest of interior southeastern mass. notice not for boston or points west. very, very close call and any subtle shift, even 10 miles is going to mean a several inch difference in the amount of snow you could get with the storm. that's what we're talking about. big changes in small number of miles in our area because we're near the northern edge. part of our area, the northern edge of the storm, part of our area the southern part in the northern edge of the heavy part of the storm. there is the snow filling the air in washington. moving northeastward. soon to be touching the ground in philadelphia and later on tonight in new york. now, if you're getting up early tomorrow and you're in the northern rhode island or southeastern mass, you may already be starting to see flakes. the other thing is if you're right around boston or just inland of boston, you may also start to get some snow flurries which would be a little ocean effect as the wind becomes northeast to east. but in terms of the actual storm, the moisture from that, probably around noon time. this is 1:00. it would be lying right along the mass pike to boston.
4:49 pm
north but then will be a struggle to get further north into the very dry air across vermont, new hampshire, and maine. this is not a snowstorm for vermont, new hampshire, and maine at all but you will see the heavier bands here, south of the pike, parts of rhode island, and connecticut. and if there is a mix for a while along the coast it should go over to snow as the wind turns northeast and then eventually northerly. but here you are seeing the purples over here, the heaviest snow. southeastern mass. this is toward dawn on sunday. then everything will rapidly move off. so either if you start the day with clouds on sunday, probably going to be a lot of sunshine. it may even start clear in places like worcester, become sunny in boston later in the morning, rest of the day looks sunny. it'll take most of the day to clear down around the cape and the islands. my best estimate on the snow, please stick with us here. been trying to tell you all along, this could be updated with time up to and even into the storm because of such a big difference in the small number of miles. but i say if you're north of boston, north of the pike, my best bet is about 1 to 3 inches
4:50 pm
you probably don't get any snow at all. but right along or just south of the pike quickly move up to 3 to 6 inches. providence to plymouth, points south, 6 to 10 inches. that is the best estimate right now. then there is the wind which could gust to over 50 miles an hour for the cape and the islands. also very gusty along the coast. especially cape ann and the waters of the south shore and even boston. look at the wind gusts building during tomorrow and look how strong they get tomorrow night. look at that. could be gusts of 60 miles an island. stays windy through the night. even into sunday morning. sunday afternoon the wind starts to relax and drop off a lot by the time we get to sunday night. especially for high tide around 11:00 a.m. to noon on sunday, two hours before to two hours after that, especially watching all of the waters of the south shore, the cape, and the islands with that situation. we'll certainly be telling you more about that as we go along.
4:51 pm
once the storm exits sunday morning more pleasant weather will move in and in fact it is going to be mild early next week. that's pretty good news. a few showers will come in roughly around tuesday. somewhat colder weather will follow after that. much more on the storm at 5:00. >> an uber driver attacked by a woman and the whole thing caught on cell phone camera. actions are being taken against her. cape may, new jersey, the winter blast in several states. take a look at the numbers on wall street after trading
