6:11 pm
that's where we find brandon gunnoe live with more. brandon? listen, last week hilary clinton said that donald trump had "a penchant for sexism" so when donald heard bill clinton would be hitting campaign trail for his wife, he said bill had a pen chant for sexism so in inappropriate. bill clinton is hitting the campaign trail in new hampshire and donald trump has already fired off a preemptive potential potentially risky strike against the former president and his wife democrat hilary clinton. the g.o.p. front-runner tweet federal government hillary thinks she can unleak her husband with his term record of women abuse while playing the women's card on me, she wrong . the trouble for donald trump bill clinton remains the most popular democratic surrogate and somebody popular with the same groups donald trump himself struggles with in an interview president obama touched on the negative tone . i don't think this country

6:15 pm
those events, adam, that leaves you speechless. i thought we could go through the whole winter and not have one snowflake. nope. it's happening. snow is coming at us after midnight tonight between 1:00 and 3:00 a.m. tomorrow morning. changing to sleet then eventually freezing rain during the morning hours tomorrow. it's a quick transition, city of boston south shore but it's a very slow process. fitchburg and worcester and carlisle and westford and up through dracut and amesbury. poor travel luckly tomorrow morning. if you have a morning commute, again, allow for extra time for cleaning off some snow and slush off your car as well as traveling on those roadways tomorrow morning. it goes from snow to sleet to rain and freezing rain even in the city of boston. midday toll there could be a shot of some heavier rainfall and then it does wind down to drizzle and freezing drizzle. so that's why i think even tomorrow afternoon will keep it in the fair category because there are some signs there may be freezing around the metro
6:16 pm
if you are traveling this ago, rose are dry up until midnight. no issues. temperatures now cold certainly cold upper 20's to around 30 but farther south and west you notice new york city at 40 and d dc at 45 so there is milder air not that far away and this warm front is going to try to drag the mild air back up into new england and it will be a tough process near the ground but understand that warm air likes to climb up and over the cold air and once it gets air been that warm air, there is nothing to slow it down so warm air is going to find its way rather easily up into the clouds where the snowflakes are and then once that happens, they are no longer snowflakes. they will be sleet pellets so that's why we see this pink showing up toll morning as early as 6:00 a.m. in boston again it is snowing, overnight tonight through early tomorrow morning up until about 6:00 or 7:00 then a cold rainstorm city of boston south on the south shore of the south coast but the sleet and free rain going on for several hours metrowest worcester hills, southern new hampshire but even for a time up there it does wind
6:17 pm
and drizzle before we all get back into the freezing drizzle and drizzle tomorrow evening. so how much snow is on the way? a coating to an inch around the city. again, as you work down the south shore tomorrow likely a coat federal government that then into metrowest not that far one to three inches of snow likely. this will be a heavy, wet snow shoveling and plowing again. it will be a tough go. not the light and fluffy snow coming at us. keep in mind freeing rain and sleet on top of that snow. up along the mass-new hampshire border three to five inches of snow before transitioning over to some ice. ice build up on trees and power lines, it's going to happen fitchburg and worcester. you get into these numbers here and the trees and power lines are pretty good of they can handle themselves but in the red shading here east slope quarter of an inch or more. that's where you are most likely to have some power disruption of worcester county. card. when you say ice in worcester county you immediately go to 200 2008 and i accident think that's the case tomorrow. it is a messy day in new england
6:18 pm
temperatures in the upper 30's. wednesday also in the upper 30's 30's. see you at 11:00 with an update. update.. >> anchor: what's the most you have ever lost on a coin toss? shades of no country for old men yesterday in the meadowlands for the patriots their decision to kick the ball away costing them a chance to lock up the top spot in the afc. not often bill belichick makes a call that comes back to bite him but this trying to win the battle for field position goes the jets the pats head coach kept his all pro quarterback from ever touching the ball. a mistake that would pro fatal in the meadow plan. that's because pats defense which forces punts on the previous three drives allowed fitzpatrick to march the jets 80 yards for the gape winning score something the pats offense seemed unable to do based on their struggles all afternoon, all adding up to a relatively easy call for belichick what isn't changing his tune on the call today. seems like much ado but nothing for me of i don't
6:19 pm
what are we talking about here? like what is happening that depend happen or whatever. i don't know. but i clearly that was our best opportunity. that's why we did it. i didn't like the way it worked out. but to me that was the right decision at the time . we haven't exactly inspired our coach to throw our offense out there to say go score a town dunn and win the game. so i don't blame him. if we were playing a lot better offensively i'm sure his decision would have been different. >> reporter: things might have been different is vollmer didn't go down on the pats first series series. the big tackle carted off with what's being reporteds a sprained ankle. he is supposed to have an mri tid today and pats are hoping he is not lost for the year. they lost three straight and are already without torey krug, clawed jewel said it's day to day but the big every blow for the bruins is to their best offensive player. krejci woke to week with an upper body injury suffered last
6:20 pm
not disclosing the nature of the injury but bobby ryan saying he collided with him shoulder to shoulder. touch break who is tied from the team lead with 33 points and leads the black and gold for ice time among forwards. maybe that could speed up david foster knack's return to the big club. last year's first round pick skating in his first game at the world junior championship with the czech republic and lying the lamp on a would with remember play goal in a 2-0 win for the czech republic. on the flip side of the success spectrum the celtics are flying high. winners of four straight after taking out the knicks last night during that streak the beating opponents by an average of 10 and a half points per night the green team off until wednesday night when they host debbie bryant who is making his final stop at the garden. it appears the yankees have acquired a player from the reds three weeks after a deal fell through with the dodgers in
