6:17 pm
coastline. that's what happens when you see that transition to a nor easter on the coast, but heavy snow pounding the d.c. area through baltimore, virginia, seeing ice through the carolinas into raleigh, points north and west of there seeing snow. what a mess for the south with this storm system. now it's trying to do the same to us. we'll have clouds all night long. notice how it's clear in that's where that the high pressure is. the high pressure means sinking, drying air. it also acts as a wall or barrier, not allowing this storm to go further north. if it's strong enough, and it looks like this one is to keep the heaviest snow at bay, doesn't mean there won't be heavy snow. there is a storm coming an shore on the south coast first thing in the morning. by noontime getting close to the pike and early afternoon through boston. points north you'll get the northern fringes of this, but the steadiest and the heaviest snow staying in southrenmost new england. this rolls out of here sunday morning, the last of the snow showers through noontime. most of us already seeing some sun.

6:19 pm
and limit that visibility. that's a criteria for the blizzard conditions. here's the seven-day forecast. your weekend always in view. temperatures will be in the 30s this weekend. in fact, since the weekend is most affected, we should probably look at that more closely. i guess i'll this that later, but the forecast for this week includes some warming air coming on tuesday with temperatures in the 40s and some rain. we have to get through this storm first. we'll talk more about the coastal flooding potential coming up in a few minutes. ism kevin, see you in a bit. emergency landing in new york with local people on board. later on passenger describes what happened in the air. >> >> reporter: the one name hillary clinton didn't mention during her visit to rochester,

atlantic are expecting more than two feet of snow. >> vanessa: fox25's chief meteorologist kevin lemanowicz has been following the system for us all week. he's in the storm tracker weather center now with what we can expect. kevin? >> kevin: it's been a long week of tracking this one from a baby storm in the pacific ocean to gaining strength as it crossed the country. it was expected the blow up and it's certainly doing that. there is our first snow into southern new jersey and pennsylvania. heavy snow into the d.c. area. it's going to be a blizzard for them. it will come off the coastline and hit us hard in some parts of the area. future cast shows that storm coming up the coast. it's begrudgingly going the make it on shore during the morning hours. it will come down lightly at first and pick up in intensity during the mid-day. the leading edge of the snow makes it to the mass pike and tries to get into northern massachusetts and southern new hampshire but having hard time because of dry air up there. that the high pressure is acting as a wall, keeping the the heaviest snow to our south, eating away the northern fringes of the snow. that's why there will be lesser aims in those areas.
6:29 pm
get much of anything as far as know flakes falling, especially for you in southern new hampshire. but the way this is playing out is for the lighter amounts anyway to be up that way, a border and southeast new hampshire, up to two inches in boston. so you go south of the pike, especially south of... then on the south shore, south of the braintree split, you're in the 3 to 6 inch range. along the coastline of scituate and marshfield, as well. plymouth and south of there, that's where your best chance of 6 inches plus. there. there's also the winds that get involved with an intense storm like this, 30, 40, 50mph wind gusts at the height of storm, even 60mph plus possible. that means you could have some power outages and also the possibility for some coastal flooding. a high wind warning is in police for those areas, and the coastal flooding thanks to the waves getting piled up against the shoreline, most likely from scituate southward toward cape cod. we'll talk more about that possibility and take this forecast step by step right through the storm. >> mark: for the first time in years the subway system in d.c.
6:30 pm
from 11:00 tonight through sunday, the metro will be off limits. our kylie campbell explains why the d.c. metro says it's necessary. >> reporter: we reached out to metro officials today. they told us the last time they shut down the metro was during super-storm sandy in 2012. we are at the union station metro stop when people were leaving town shortly after lunch. the main reason metro is shutting down is to hopefully be ready to go for the monday morning commute. metro says it will protect hundreds of rail cars by storing then in the underground tunnel during the storm. with no metro service, people are left with few options to get around d.c. if they need to. officials already warn they will not start clearing snow from the streets until after it starts falling down saturday night into sunday. so some people may attempt to walk from point a to point b, but with about two feet of snow expected and 30 to 50mph wind gust, officials say people could just stay inside all weekend.

6:43 pm
mid atlantic may get two feet. fox25's justin gray is live now in washington, d.c., where the snow has already started falling out there. justin, are people out and about tonight? we know you guys had an awful lot of trouble with about two inches of know yesterday. >> yeah, vanessa, they told people at 3:00 to find a safe place and stay, there but you can take a look at the roads. there are some cars out here. there's also some people standing in the road over there. we're seeing fewer and fewer people out here, which is good. they want people to get home and to stay there throughout the weekend. as you say, we had trouble with two inches. people were stuck on the road for hours. right now 3 to 4 inches. we're expecting to get up to two feet. if you have problems with two inches, you can imagine the mess out here with two feet of snow over this weekend. >> mark: justin, i'm struck by the lack of people in cars behind you. i can't get over it because i last saw you in september when we covered the pope down there in his visit the washington, d.c., and it was a mob scene. >> reporter: right. well, mark, this is a very busy
6:44 pm
you can see we're right by the capitol, very busy intersection here, and right now very few cars out. we also have union station on the other side of the camera. it is also very slow out here tonight. and even the metro, the subway and bus system is scheduled to shut down at 11:00. that's unprecedented for washington, d.c. they're shutting down public transit for the entire weekend. they're taking this very seriously, really strongly encouraging people to just go home and stay home. >> vanessa: all right, justin. we want to know what your plans are for the weekend. what are you going to do to hunker down? >> reporter: well, my car is staying right here. who knows when i'll be back. i'm going to try to hit the metro before it closes down, and we'll see how that goes. we'll see how it's running. but that's my goal, when i'm done talking to you to, take the metro on home and see how long >> vanessa: all right. you better get there fast. thank you so much for your live report. >> reporter: that's right.
6:45 pm
weather alert. >> kevin: well, he seem awfully happy about the blizzard, doesn't he? got to keep a good sense of humor in situations like that. you also have to keep safe. that's what we're trying to help you do with the know moving in and the wind and the celestial concern, too. those are the clouds over us. i want to get you an idea of what it will be like tomorrow as far as temperatures. it will be cold enough for snow no matter where you go tomorrow. for instance, 28 dedham, 30 in natick tomorrow afternoon. here on the north shore, 30, 31 degrees beverly. rockport 31. below freezing. should be fine for snow. worcester 22. auburn 24. but you're getting into the dryer, colder air back here and not as much snow. where it will come down hardest to the south shore and the south coast, new bedford 33, plymouth 34. that means you'll get some wet snow, columbiay snow. it will not blow around as much, which cur tails any blizzard conditions. blizzards mean you have to have blowing and drifting snow to cause white-out conditions. the snow is too heavy and wet to blow around, you're not going to get a blizzard no matter how strong the winds are, just the
6:46 pm
know falling in southern jersey into philadelphia. you saw justin in d.c., it's coming down hard. ice and snow in the carolinas, heavy rain at the coastline where the storm will come off and make a run at us. it's going more east than north. so we're on the northern fringing of this track. but the snow will come along the south coast by 11:00 a.m. it's slowing down a bit. this is updated from what i was showing you before. i expect this because the reason is there is plenty of dry air to our north. it's away the leading edge of the snow. it will eventually make it to boston by about 3:00 p.m. it will try the make it to the north shore and on to new hampshire. notice southern new hampshire back the northern worcester county, they may be shut out of this storm. it's something we'll be watching closely. they're getting the lesser totals anyway, but you could be shut out. the the heaviest will be south coast and the south shore of massachusetts and it blows on out of here. we're back into the sunshine by sunday afternoon. so from tomorrow morn, we'll be watching the snow creep in through sunday morn, prime time for the storm. but particularly in the afternoon for boston.
6:47 pm
i'm expecting a coating to two inches that. shutout being pitched to the north and west. that could come further to the south. seas can meander north and south. my thinking is stay firm to what we're looking at last night. with 3 to 6 inches on the south shore, you may say that's gone up. i had 3 to 5 inches. 3 to 6 is a slight adjustment. that has to account for some of that ocean-effect snow along the coastline, 7 to 12 inches from plymouth to providence over through places like maybe manchester, connecticut, and then southeast into cape cod and the islands. 7 inches to a foot of snow, that's where the the heaviest is going to be. it's also where the strongest winds would be. expecting gusts over 40, 50, even potentially 60mph. that's why the national weather service has a high wind warning if these locations. that can cause some branches to come down and power lines, too. power outages tough this time of year when it's so cold. tough any time, but especially when it's cold. prepare ahead of time. get the wood in if you have some
6:48 pm
pellets to heat up, any kind of secondary heat source, get ready for that now. vineyard. winter storm warnings in place where the the heaviest snow will be along the coastline to our south. here's a seven-day forecast. this weekend, showing you the snow that's coming on in. 32, 33 degrees. then we're clearing it out sunday afternoon into monday. keep in mind, there are coastal flood watches in place too, especially scituate to plymouth to sandwich. >> reporter: all right it. the celtics are getting back at it. i'll preview their matchup at the garden tonight.
