>> announcer: this is a fox 25 storm tracker weather alert. >> weather alert continues tonight as the storm clears out. wind and waves continue on the coast. good evening everyone i'm mark ockerbloom. >> and i'm vanessa welch. the concern also turning to the chance of dangerous ice on the roads just in time for everyone to head back to work and back to school. so we have team coverage for you tonight of this storm. our reporters fanned out across the area bringing you the latest conditions. let's begin tonight with our chief meteorologist kevin ken in the storm tracker weather center. we are still under a winter weather advisory right now. >> the snow keeps coming down until that gets on out be in place of course there's that danger of icy roads. yes everything is getting treated and plowed off there tonight but it's just so cold that anything left on those roadways and walkways has a danger of icing up. the snow is still coming down in some places coming down pretty good. like here in the south shore still some accumulating snow happening.
10:01 pm
of purposing off to the north in stoughton it's still snowing. to the north shore we're seeing that as well. this will continue to wheel its way on out of here after midnight tonight. we'll have to watch for some ocean effect bans out there. oak bluff at 9.8 and centreville at 8.9. then into the south shore area plymouth at 8.1, there's west wareham at 8.9. then finally east bridgewater 7.50 inches of snow same thing for brockton many up here wilmington at 5.6. lynn at 4.4 back here to worcester county four inches of snow in worcester also we've been seeing the towns around the boston area finally picking up some snow late tonight. for instance in boston 4.7 inches of snow has fallen so far that's official. but it could go up later on tonight. here's sarah wroblewski she's been tracking what these numbers mean for boston so far. now boston's total 21.9.
10:02 pm
inches below the average under five at least. worcester also picking up some snowfall for the day today about four inches. so still below average but we still have more snow to go. and the one thing i want to point out this storm it was a blizzard why we had falling and blowing snow. reducing the visibility down on to a quarter mile less for three hours at least. nantucket, hyannis, all qualified and it was an official blizzard. now the visibility looking okay right now. it's still low so if you're headed out be careful. the winds definitely not as gusty as they were coming up the winds really piling up the water now our eyes are turnedded to the coast. we have another high tide coming coming soup we're in that cycle now we have that coastal flood advisory potential. so it's northeast facing
10:03 pm
south shore out to cape cod there will be some minor flooding not to. it won't be as bad as it was earlier today because the winds have come down and the seas have calmed down a bit. oceans have a memory. so there's still some big waves out there and there's going to be some splashover in those coastal areas again tonight. we'll track that snow on out of here tonight and talk about those icy roads more coming up. >> to the south shore now you can see the waves hitting and then running right under these houses in scituate. that's where we find fox 25's malini basu tonight. malini? >> reporter: mark, high tide is just about here. a little while ago i checked with the police they tell us there's nothing major to report. but in neighboring marshfield a home was nearly washed away and luckily no one was hurt. le onman winter just isn't giving up in scituate. the snow keeps falling and falling and falling. >> staying ahead of the snow really because we have a big roof. trying to keep the trees clear.

10:07 pm

10:28 pm
>> reporter: according to federal statistics, it is likely the guns that were used to kill her relatives were illegal and it's also likely those guns came from across the state line. fox 25 investigates and massachusetts has some of the most stringent gun control laws in the country, those laws cannot stop the tide of illegal weapons pouring into the state. >> the majority of the firearms recovered here in massachusetts crime guns are sourced from other states. they were purchased initially from another state. >> reporter: dan kumar is a special agent in charge of the boston office of the federal bureau of alcohol, tobacco, and firearms. a.t.f. estimates 60% of the guns involved in massachusetts crime come from out of state, mostly vermont, maine, and new hampshire. kumar says those states have more lenient gun laws, criminals know that and they often use other people to gunshots. >> massachusetts requires permits in order to purchase
10:29 pm
states like new hampshire, that's not a requirement. >> reporter: consider the life of this .9-milimeter pistol. this is a gun used to kill m.i.t. police officer sean collier in cambridge. the gun was originally bought at a maine gun shop. but over the years it made its way to this man stephen silva who lent it to convicted boston marathon bomber dzhokhar tsarnaev. indeed, the week before the boston marathon bombing attack tsarnaev brothers travelled to a new hampshire gun range to practice using it. the a.t.f. shows me a table full of crime guns taken from the streets of massachusetts. most on of these guns originally came from over the state lines. >> the majority from this case the majority originated from being purchased store purchased from gun dealers in new hampshire. >> reporter: mendez is now a peace activist. part of her mission to stop the supply of illegal guns reaching neighborhoods like hers. >> we can stop that. america is a powerful
10:30 pm
we try to stop everything but can we stop the guns? >> for fox 25 investigates, i'm bob ward, fox 25 news. you may recall president obama unveiled a new plan to cut down on gun violence a key part of his plan calls for gun sellers including those at gun shows or over the internet. to be licensed and conduct background checks. snowflakes still flying out there out on cape cod the big winners were out here many towns upwards of nine inches of snow being reported in many of these locations. match pewith nine inches seeing those all across the center part of cape cod as well. really a prolific snow maker for you at least at times today when it was coming down at its hardest. this is west yarmouth at nine inches of snow. over here in the upper cape about six inches of snow up here in the saanich area we saw about six to eight inches of snow.
10:31 pm
many of these locations. plymouth area we saw upwards of six inches of snow as well. really some good accumulations expected to jackpot areas we certainly saw that tonight. to the north shore now your snow came later on in the day. but north wedding finally picked up 4.50 in lynn you picked up a little over four inches of snow as well. then back here to the west of there wilmington picking up 5.6 inches of snow. out in concord massachusetts about six inches of snow as well. worstedder county north and west of the city of worst in the city of worst a couple different muchts 2.50. there but at the airport it far. still waiting for the latest measurements to come in from worcester county. area. last check at logan airport a 4.7 inches in east boston. but that will also be added to because if it gets checked every few hours not every hour so we're still waiting for the latest report to come in likely after midnight tonight.
10:32 pm
that tonight as well. arlington at 44.2 this will be west roxbury at about four inches of snow there as well. framing hamg it jumped right up to six, 6.50 inches of snow in that area. this is the snow that's still falling out there. this darker purple band in here scituate and marshfield through plymouth still seeing some potentially accumulating snow. another half inch to an inch of snow before it wheels on off to the north. milton, quincy, braintree same idea you're in that same band just going farther to the on north along it. this stretches from lighter purple northward toward lowell, framingham more nuisance snow. this is all going to wheel off to the north. we'll watch for is those winds blowing across the water and producing ocean effect bands. i really am not all that concerned about. this yes there can be some ocean effect but as the winds relent tonight this will not keep going through the morning into the afternoon. notice how the bands really start to come way offshore anymore.
10:33 pm
we'll be done with this storm. so the biggest concern in the morning is not going to be more snow falling but the temperatures in the 20s and wind gusts like this over 20 miles per hour. it feels so cold out there. boston feels like five, beverly feels like seven and lawrence feels like eight degrees. overnight tonight those cold temperatures will lead to reicing the of the roadways. there's more cold weather on the way. potentially. >> that's right, kevin. we have some very cold conditions just to our north that's going to be trailing this system that came on through. in fact a series of systems. you can see the darker shades of purple and blue in parts of canada. this is all going to be pushing southward behind antarctic cold front that we will be tracking that's going to be pushing our way through the week. but notice this is the storm system this is tuesday. you mention not that best of chance of seeing some snow showers for tomorrow as the winds die down. our storm systems well to the east. another system develops to our south. this one looks as though it's going to pass us, miss
10:34 pm
we'll see the clouds. but boy look at this. we have a lot more going on. looks as though another low pressure may develop to our south with perhaps bringing us a better chance of snow showers on wednesday with some scattered snow showers developing by the morning commute on wednesday and then through your lunch hour picking up anywhere from a coating to even a couple of inches on wednesday into the afternoon hours. precipitation continue because that arctic cold front hasn't even come through. it looks as though by thursday that's when we'll see that front come through and kevin, some of the temperatures for the second half of the week looking pretty chilly. >> bitter cold into that valentine's day weekend. a billing shoutout to all our help from twitter. up to four on to five inches today really appreciate all the help you give us giving us reports from the ground level. there are the chances of snow showers. so the south tomorrow everywhere on wednesday and another chance for some snow on saturday. looks a little weaker tonight but something else we're tracking we'll talk more about.
10:35 pm
and early every 10 minutes on the fox 25 morning news. stay safe as you head back to work and school in the morning. it all begins at 4:00 a.m.. final sendor of in the snow. next at 11:00 the kind of procession not seen in generations in providence. the funeral for long time mayor buddy cianci. >> first james taylor, billy joel, pearl jam now the next bands that just signed to play at fenway park this summer. and the zika virus reaching a dangerous new threat level.
10:36 pm
there are those who say a corrupt political system and fix a rigged economy. but i believe we need to lift our vision and look to the american horizon. can not only dream of going to college, but attend one. where quality healthcare will be a birthright of every citizen. where a good job is not a wish, but a reality. where women receive equal pay and a living wage an america there is time a nation that defends our people and our values, but no longer carries
10:37 pm
we can create that america if we listen to our conscience and our hearts and not to the pundits and the naysayers. i'm bernie sanders. i approve this message, and i ask for your vote. >> developing tonight the wife of an isis leader has been charged in the death of an american hostage. the justice department says she is accused of holding u.s. worker kill aa mueller hostage and contributing to her death. she was captured last year and is currently in iraqi custody. now it's unclear right now if she'll be brought to the u.s. to stand trial. her husband was killed last may in a raid on his compound. u.s. and south korean
