wet snow for awhile lang the coast or perhaps may hin door accumulation baits is so wet. we get this tomorrow evening. then we have better opportunity to accumulate. that is true down on the cape. that is important because they precipitation. for them. here is a look already. what is going on. you a can see it is snowing in new york city. really, not a far south of long line. not that part far south of the island. is going to move upon the south coast first and make the way northward during the course of tomorrow morning. once we wind out. you see the deeper purples here. very heavy know to philadelphia and the nation's capital and thork city. just getting to the steady snow now. storm center in the position. the track of the storm is just a a little bit too far south to really give boston the traditional big snowstorms when the type of storms come a little bit closer that is why i think washington, baltimore, philly
hefty amounts with you the southern part of our area meaning providence and points south couldyon the club through reasonable degree in terms of accumulation. here we go tomorrow. 1:00 mass pipe. notice it is snowing hard over the south coast and southeastern massachusetts and doesn't do any thing to the north it is a struggle to build to the north and going up against dry air in vermont new hampshire and maine. the snow bands may work to boston and little bit north and west and during tomorrow afternoon, into tomorrow night before they start retreating the other way. how long will they be ins about son in not quite make it. 3-4-6 hours that makes a huge difference because for that period of time it does reach boston, it could snow at good clip. everything whistles out to sea quickly early sunday. we get clearing during the morning and sunshine for the afternoon. now, i want to show you one computer model what it is predict. notice the drop-off north of the pipe. you got three inches in
5 in boston. you build though south and drop-off sharply to the north. there's another computer model very similar in you bring the snow around lunchtime during the afternoon. a little bit north of boston then it goes the soth and moves on out to sea. even thought is similar. amounts are dif rerent. they are are lighter. only an inch or two and bopoff north and build up south t. the yesterday is pretty much there and it is a matter of a degree. sometimes we get even bigger differences and even smaller. but rating now, the best bet is one or two inches snort of the pipe and nothing above route 2. 2 to 5 inches immediately south of the pipe. 5 to 9 to marshfield and points south. we have rong winds, the strongest will be around the cape and the islands with the storm. look at some of the peak wind gusts a z we go through this. look at atlantic city and lack what could happen as we get to tomorrow night. because we're talking about so much wind, that begs issue of the coast.
high tide around 11:00 tomorrow noon. for the south shore, as well as the cape, these are the places to watch for at least flashover, probably minor coastal flooding, a few pockets of moderate coastal flooding. we have to watch places like scituate, nantucket to meanings few. the morning area, plum eye in la will well weal watch for beach erosion. also the next seven days. as they said, we cleared during sunday. mild next week. a few hows with on tuesday. much colder wednesday and thursday. both cindy and cannial in for the eyeopener tomorrow. any change in that track tapped lifting or dropping of those snow areas will be right on top of it. i prom misyou. heather: i know all of you will be. ed: harv back here tomorrow
