7:19 am
playing a factor this morning. although it is 19 in boston, that wind out of the northwest about 14 miles per hour making it feel like just 6 , so single digit wind chill values as we head through the morning hours. good news is the winds will lighten up through the afternoon and temperatures in the 20s and upper 20s, low 30s by the afternoon and noticing to the clouds filling on in, mainly high, thin clouds and still see some sunshine through the afternoon as kids come home from school and before the evening commute and any dinner plans for friday night, we are looking just fine as temperatures will fall back into the mid-20s. so today highs a little bit cooler than it was yesterday but the winds will actually make it feel a little bit nicer, upper 20s to low 30s with mostly sunny skies but it is going to be a big change as we head into the weekend. we got a winter storm watch for the southcoast, the cape and islands as well as southern rhode island and connecticut. this all begins tomorrow at 7:00 a.m. until sunday morning
7:20 am
so our weekend storm headlines while we are missing the brunt of the storm, we will still be impacted with the heaviest snow to the south, there will be very sharp cutoff further north you go and strong winds too will be quite gusty, 50 to 60 miles per hour for the cape and islands and that could lead to some scattered power outages, maybe perhaps isolated damage too and those winds churning up the seas will bring some of the waves on shore as we head toward the times of high tide, late saturday night and then again sunday morning. could see minor coastal flooding, pockets as well as some beach erosion too. so this is our storm system really beginning to take shape now, snow spreading from the mississippi valley, tennessee valley to the carolinas, heavy rain too to parts of the southeast and continue to track into the mid-atlantic and this is where we are going to see some of the most intense snow and winds. that's why we have blizzard conditions in places like d.c.,
7:21 am
island. noticing the time stamp, this is late on friday, we are just doing with clouds and by early saturday morning as the system finally pushes pushes off the coast, noticing brunt of the storm to the south and this budges about 50 miles, we could be talking about higher impact across the south and high pressure to the north really suppressing the storm to the south, so by saturday expect to see the snow will begin to arrive from south to north through the lunch hour toward the mass pike and as we head into the evening hours, we are watching some of the snow bands steady across the southcoast and one thing we notice with the trend, biggest impact going to be saturday night and sunday morning before we finally see improvements and breaks in the clouds. so while the jackpot will be near the d.c. area, we are expecting to see anywhere from coating to couple inches in boston, ocean effect could allow for the coastal locations to see higher amounts, three to five and best chance of seeing six inches will be down across the
7:22 am
forecast with weekend always in view, get ready, we are going to be talking about snow, wind as well, we will see temperatures moderate as we head into next week with a chance of showers on tuesday, but, of course, we will take a closer look at some of the new data coming in and bring that to you live and have update in a few minutes. >> sara: pair of adorable dogs stolen from a local home and still ahead on the fox25 morning news, while the owners think where they took the dogs to play made them a target. but first, popular brand of infant car seats issuing major

8:19 am
notice the snow starting to arrive along the southcoast and getting toward the mass pike around the lunch hour as the system pushes to the east. slight jog to the north, bring steadier bands of snow into southern new england and looks as though we are going to be dealing with snow along the southcoast, cape and islands, during the evening hours and continuing overnight through early sunday and we are just really going to have to watch how far north the northern edge goes. winds too barreling across the coastal locations. so the 7-day forecast does feature the change heading our way this weekend temperatures moderate as we head into next week. we will also be watching the cold front bring chance of showers by tuesday. we will take a closer look at those hour-by-hour winds coming up next half hour. >> gene: 8:21 this morning, burglar after more than just money and jewelry when hit local home. coming up a family's plea to get their pet dogs back and video that caught the burglar in the act. we have heard a number of
