new at 10:00 the u.s. hitting isis right in the wallet. take a look at this declassified bomb videoing from a bombing raid. the bombs hit the building in the center of the screen and then as the smoke clears you can see a lot of cash fluttering in the air. the u.s. central command says they've hit several other cash stores recently. isis needs the money to pay the fighters and to recruit new ones. the army says it will not decide right now about whether to award sergeant bo bergdahl medals for his time in captivity. bergdahl is accused of walking off his base in afghanistan in 2009. he was later captured by a taliban affiliate group and held for five years until the u.s. negotiated his release. bergdahl was eligible for a prisoner of war medal and a purple heart. the army says it will make a decision after bergdahl is court-martialed. starting at 11:00 tonight the precipitation isn't going to come probably until 2:00 in the morning.
10:32 pm
what it means for all of you out there tonight and into tomorrow. just clouds over us right now starting to see some showers approaching southern new england. a lot of dry air over us though so these showers won't make it in here directly. look where it's coming off the coast here right off the virginia coastline from norfolk that means it's coming a little closer to the shoreline. any time a storm does that it brings even more warm air farther north in new england. and that means less of a chance of snow and ice. that's certainly some good news if you don't like that kind of precipitation. here's the storm center tonight coming just southeast of nantucket. it's still far enough away you're not going to get a direct hit. let's go in a little more closely and find that rain through the monk hours. if you remember at 5:00 and 6:00 if you were along for the ride you know that initial precipitation was setting in up here with some icing. it's farther north along the massachusetts border that's
10:33 pm
to be with this first patch -- batch of precipitation. temperatures will be at or just below freezing. as the storm gets closer to us they will push that warm air on in here. yes there's still some snow back here but it's going to be very elevation dependent. the air above us is mostly cold enough for snow at least at the beginning and certainly on the back side of the storm system. there's the snow in southern vermont again in the elevation. you can really tell its elevation by what's happening in western vermont. see that rain getting into the valley location coming in off of the green mountain. the mountains have the snow the valley locations do not. here in southern new england same idea. southern vermont into the berkshires not anywhere else tomorrow morning. so a little bit of icing possible at the very on set north of the pike. in massachusetts. but it would just be some spotty icing the way it looks to me right now then
10:34 pm
the back side of the storm. by 3:30 just about done with this. and certainly by 4:30, 5:00 we have no rain around or snow or anything so the patriots game no issues paul for that. in fact clearing during the course of the game. here's some expecting for snow totals. i pushed this back a little bit right along 495. with town two inches in that strike in here for that snow that can can form especially on the back side of this system. it's back here in the elevations we'll keep it at three on six inches. perhaps the northern worcester hills getting as many as three inches. no doubt we're getting a storm. the question still remain what kind of precipitation how much you will be getting. rain looks like a guarantee to have some heavy stuff especially in southeastern massachusetts taking you past noon time over half an inch. here are your threats. rain a high threat from this one. snow a moderate threat.
10:35 pm
ice a moderate threat and again north of the pike north and west of interstate 495. temperatures tell the story in the 40s here in southern new england. but only freezing back here in manchester, fitchburg into worcester as well. here's the seven-day in view. there it is temperature 41 on average tomorrow colder north and west. warmer to the southeast. on sunday some light snow showers especially on the cape in the afternoon and around on monday but that won't be anything that will be a big storm the way it looks right now. latest information coming in highlight at 11:00. >> the l kevin we'll see you in just a bit. the coast guard jumping into action today off the coast of cape cod. stay tuned for the fox 25 news at 11:00. the life-threatening problem on board a fishing boat that sent coast guard members into the rescue. but still ahead at 10:00 the seizure in the middle of an eye exam. unanswered. >> first they called from their answer no answer. i dprald my cell phone again no answer.
10:36 pm
tried calling and nobody picked up. what the operator was dog that 9-1-1 line instead of answering the phone. first more people are
10:37 pm
than into there are two democratic visions for regulating wall street. one says it's okay to take millions from big banks and then tell them what to do. my plan -- break up the big banks,
10:38 pm
