8:08 am
better to go ahead and paint all snow on this map. there's monday morning. waking up with some scattered snow showers. as far as of amounts, it looks like a coating to 2 inches is likely area wide. but notice where we're seeing the higher amounts, the higher terrain north and west, possibly parts of southern new hampshire, but also a bit of a bull's eye here, the vineyard and the cape because that coastal trough may set up a difference between warmer and cooler air and that could help to bump up some of the those snow totals in that area. waking up tomorrow morning in the mid to low 20s. it's going to be seasonably cold and the winds will start to kick in after sunrise tomorrow. so 2:00, 20 miles an hour winds area wide. so we're going to start seeing wined chills become a problem, especially midday into the afternoon tomorrow. there's monday at 4:00 on our holiday monday. we're seeing wind chills in the single digits. pretty much area wide. and then subzero wind chills

8:32 am
here. and a few heavier snow squalls possible in the higher terrain out west. and you see here, a coating to two inches is likely area wide. but the higher amounts likely going to be along the shore line, possibly in the higher terrain and back over southern vermont as well. and monitor if any bands set up around the cape as well. we can see locally higher amounts up 3 or 4 inches in those locations. for tonight, back in the 20s, low 20s, framingham, upper 20s boston. even nantucket below freezing were and then winds start to kick in after sunrise tomorrow. so a windy monday, a very chilly end to our holiday weekend. in fact, there's 4:00. look at the wind chills that i'm showing you, going into the single digits as far as the feels like numbers. you want a lot of layers, especially monday, into the night tomorrow night. watch these wind chills just

8:55 am
>> we would match those homes with young people, young and maybe not so young, to come and clean those paths. >> reporter: the city still has to term did how it would pay shovellers. the fine for an average resident who doesn't clear the sidewalk within three hours is $50. one idea is to use that money to fund the program. jackson says the plan is a neighborly one. >> they took care of us when we were young and we're going to take care of them when they're in need. >> reporter: elizabeth hopkins, fox 25 news. >> heather: more details now on those snow finds. we reached out to the city to find out how many businesses and homes were fined just after the snowstorm on december 29th, remember that, the week after christmas, the code enforcement office tells fox 25 there were 973 violations at commercial properties and 289 violations at residents. just on that snow day alone. that would add up to more than $14,000 in fines from those homes alone. a hearing will now be held on jackson's proposal.
8:56 am
>> posted. >> jason: good morning. this sunday. but we're already watching our next snow maker to be in here as early as this evening and even lasts until tomorrow. and then wind behind that system will mean wind chills. we're going to have to watch that very carefully heading out to wrap up our holiday on unin. bitter. and i'll have a look at how low we'll get. already seeing high clouds move in after a bright start a few hours ago in boston. now beginning to see those high clouds, 35 degrees, a light northwest wind. so very little wind compared to what we'll be seeing as we get into tomorrow. let's take a look at norwood. currently 44 degrees visibility just fine. up in the upper 30s for the most part of the day. not going to warm up a whole lot because clouds are thickening up.
8:57 am
evening, a few flakes flying. possibly early vineyard here. 37 degrees and warming up just a few more degrees and that's about all today. and then by 5:00, a chance of a few snow showers already appearing for the island. so afternoon highs in the low to mid 30s from worcester to boston. we'll be up to 34 in lawrence and clouds starting to build in. so it's just going to feel like a chilly afternoon for us. here comes our first system. that's going to pass by largely to our south. but i do think as early as about 5, 6:00, a few snow showers brushing the cape and islands. and then our next system comes in overnight from the great lakes. and that really helps to get heavier bands of snow going. and we'll watch carefully because along the coast we could see a trough set up where winds are meeting up and looks locally higher ams of snow. so overall a coating to two inches is likely. but you see how the model is painting higher amounts along the eastern shore line, possibly down towards the cape and islands as well.
8:58 am
so cold enough for snow everywhere. temperatures in the low to mid 20s in most locations. waking up tomorrow morning, it's cold but the indiana winds don't the morning. early afternoon. winds, 20th, 25 miles an hour tomorrow. that's going to cause wind chill issues. look at these wind chills dropping through the day. 4:00 tomorrow. single digits feels like numbers. and then waking up on tuesday morning, it's going to feel like below zero in most spots. so really going to of to put the layers on, heading back to it on a tuesday morning. the windy conditions arrive. scattered snow showers, and then dry for the better half of the week but then tracking our next weather maker by the end of the week into next weekend. still too early to tell the timing and the exact location. but right now, the models are indicating something coming by in the form of a nor'easter, guys for next weekend.
