7:06 am
the snow let up and when it is all done, how much snow on the ground? al is here this morning with that and more. >> it will be done in about 24 hours, but we are dealing with the effects of this into next week easily with the power outages and snow. we will have to get rid of it. look at the swath from montauk to the appalachian. here is why we ended up upping the amounts. the storm moved further north than predicted. we have blizzard warnings from virginia all the way to martha's vineyard. winds of 35 miles per hour or more and sustained as you get in for three hours or so. it also means you have visibility of less than a quarter of a mile. cranberry, new jersey, 7 inches of snow. you go to atlantic city right now, they are looking at 6 inches of snow. it is still coming down.
7:07 am
about a rate of 2 to 3 inches per hour. so here's what we look for as far as the accumulations. keep in mind we will look at winds gusting over 50 miles per hour. heavy snow for washington and baltimore. 24 inches or more when all is said and done. for philadelphia, central and southern new jersey, heavy snow into the early afternoon. 18 to 24 inches of snow with winds gusting up to 40 miles per hour. in the new york area, we expect to see 18 to 24 inches of snow. this heavy snow continuing into the afternoon. winds gusting up to 50 miles per hour. we are looking at blizzard conditions. new haven, 8 to 12 inches. providence at 3 to 6. boston will see 2 to 4 inches. we have coastal flood advisories from delmarva and all the coast. we will deal with this for a long time to come into next
7:08 am
you will need a lot of rest. keeping your eye on this. another rokerthon coming up. it will be all day on two days ago washington, d.c. was almost brought to a standstill with just a brushing of snow. is the city equipped to handle this storm? the washington mayor, mayor bowser is here with us. good morning. >> my pleasure. >> what is the conditions this morning? >> as you have been reporting all morning, we are in the eye of the significant storm. a storm we have not seen like this in washington, d.c. in 94 years. we got out early pre-treating our streets, closing our government and schools on friday. really encouraged everybody to get home. we have seen since yesterday, with snow starting about 1:00,
7:09 am
forecast is going to hold. we are going to get at least another foot. >> back in the '90s, heavy snowfall shutdown washington, d.c. for an entire week. how is this storm? >> this is a blizzard with sustained winds. we prepared our residents and stay inside for 36 hours. we are seeing the winds pick up today. very hazardous conditions. nobody should really be out on the roads. we're keeping our roads passable for emergency vehicles. tomorrow, if it stops as it is proceed. >> mayor, when there was less than 2 inches in washington, d.c. two days ago, people were stuck in the cars for hours. the president had to use the motorcade back to the white house slipping and sliding. are things different this time
7:10 am
>> there's no similarity to tell you the truth. this blizzard has been forecast for several days. our entire apparatus is running out of other homeland and emergency management agency. we have all of our resources fully deployed. thank you. >> thank you. everybody stay safe. i want to head where the snow is less of an issue at this hour. heavy amounts of ice could cause problems for millions if the south. we have nbc's gabe gutierrez joining us from charlotte, north carolina with more on that angle. gabe, good morning. >> reporter: erica, good morning. more than 130,000 customers in north carolina are without power and we take a live look from the air. you can see there has been plenty of snow and sleet here in the charlotte area, but thankfully not as much freezing rain as you had initially expected. there are about 1,200 crashes or
7:11 am
including at least six deaths. a good samaritan was killed, police say, when he was shot by the stranded motorist he was trying to help allegedly under the influence. travel here is a nightmare. american airlines is expected to resume flights in the area. the area is preparing for the huge football game hosted here by the carolina panthers. yesterday, they practiced in the snow. a major pep rally was canceled. the team says they are ready for tomorrow. today, workers will take the tarp off the field to be able to dry it out in time for the big game. a bit more sleet is also expected here in north carolina throughout the morning. it is expected to move out later today. guys, back to you. >> gabe gutierrez this morning. gabe, thank you. >> it is not just massive amounts of snow, ice and high winds that have people worried. for many along the coast, the
7:12 am
could cause problems this weekend. we have nbc's rehema ellis along the coast with more on that. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, jose. it is a tough morning out here. we had winds gusts above 50 miles an hour. i'm holding on so i can stay on the air. there is a real concern about what could happen here. during hurricane sandy in 2012, this building where i am right now, was torn apart during the storm. the city around the coastal area, they spent the last couple days with bulldozers pushing as much sand as they could up against to protect the areas and water coming from the atlantic ocean. they are not so worried about the inches of snow they will get. they are worried about the water from the atlantic ocean. it is to my left right now and it is brutal.
7:13 am
barely hold my position here because the wind is that strong coming off the ocean. no one is out and about. they are heeding the warnings. stay inside and just hunker down. >> thank you very much. that satellite uplink is difficult because the winds are so strong. new jersey governor chris christie was supposed to be on the campaign trail this weekend. he returned to his home state to help his residents. he joins us now. governor, good to have you here with us. i'm not sure you could see rehema ellis. she is on the coast of new jersey. where is your focus this morning, governor? is it the coastal area? >> it is not more than any other part of the state. we do not expect major flooding on the coast. we expect some street flooding, which is fairly typical for storm events on the coast in new jersey.
7:14 am
expecting any type of major flooding incidents along the coast. they will be a bit better off from the snow perspective as rehema mentioned in her report. in the other parts of the state, we have heavier snow than we thought we were, 6 to 18 inches in the north. up to 2 feet in central and state. >> as you well know, there was a fair amount of criticism in timing of leaving the campaign trail in new hampshire to return home to new jersey. how do you answer those critics? >> i don't know why they would be critical. i was here last night before the first snow flake dropped. so i don't understand any basis for criticism. my view was i wanted the best information i possibly could as to whether my presence was needed here. once i got the final forecast at 11:00 yesterday morning, i made home. despite the fact flights were
7:15 am
i drove from new hampshire back to new jersey. 8:00 p.m. folks to stay home. you talked about the revised snow totals. when will it be safe for folks to be out again in your este estimation estimation. >> i think tomorrow. i think today and tonight, this should be expected as an inside day for them. we are doing well in keeping the roads passable for the emergency vehicles. up in the north, we have mostly wet roads with traffic moving freely. all the roadways are passable. 35-mile-an-hour restriction on the roads like the new jersey turnpike and garden state parkway. our department of transportation has over 3,800 pieces of equipment out there right now spreading salt and sand and
7:16 am
you know, right now, we feel like we are doing well from that perspective. we have about 17,000 power outages so far across state. most of those focused in a southern part of the state. about 15,000 being in cape may county. >> we know you are a busy man today. we appreciate you taking time for us. thank you. >> thank you very much. >> the snow is falling quickly in philadelphia as well. that city is expected to see 2 feet when it is all said and done. nbc's jacob rascon is in philly with more. jacob, good morning. >> reporter: jose, good morning. we were thinking 1.5 feet, but now as you said, up to 2 feet of snow expected. the snow has been falling 2 to 3 inches an hour in some areas. they are blizzard conditions. sustained winds above 30 miles an hour with gusts well above 40. this snow is not expected to stop all day. there is a blizzard warning and winter storm warning in effect
7:17 am
areas through tomorrow morning at 3:00 a.m. of course, the airport is closed and saying there are no flights in or out of the airport. all day at this airport and three other airports as well. as you can tell, the wind is pretty bad. it is miserable out here. the problem is the plows are trying to plow all of the roads, but they can't get done with the primary roads because they go and as soon as they are done with one, they have to turn around and do it again because of the wind. they have not gotten to the secondary roads. they are advising nobody be out and driving today in philadelphia. jose. >> jacob rascon, thank you. >> if you had a trip planned this weekend and did not get out ahead of the storm, you are staying put. 6,000 flights canceled. several airports shutdown. it could be a while before it is
7:18 am
nbc's kristen dahlgren is at a quiet laguardia airport. >> reporter: good morning, erica. this is something you don't see all the time. a virtual empty laguardia. there are a couple dozen passengers at the food court. they did not get the texts or memos that the flights were canceled. they are here trying to figure out what to do. whether to get a hotel or sleep here for the next day. trying to figure out when they can get out. it is a mess nationwide. take a look. more than 4,100 cancellations nationwide. the worst airports in new york. topping the list at jfk. at laguardia, 254. security is shutdown here. no flights getting in or out. also philadelphia, as jacob said, and d.c. airports having a tough day.
7:19 am
we are seeing the misery across country. ft. lauderdale and miami with cancellations because of the storm. it is all interconnected and if you have cancellations here, those flights are not here and aircraft is not getting to the right place. difficult day of travel in the nation. >> kristen, thank you. and we will have your flight canceled as well. >> i had my flight to miami tomorrow canceled yesterday. they texted and said don't bother come together airport. dinner. >> we will have much more on the blizzard throughout the morning. we want to get to other news. in politics, nine days to go to the caucuses in iowa. candidates are sharpening attacks as they work to getting a high voter turnout. nbc's kristen welker is at the airport. to you. the candidates will be out in force despite the weather making their closing arguments with the
7:20 am
>> i approve this message. >> reporter: the two gop frontrunners battling it out on the air waves. donald trump hitting ted cruz over immigration. >> sounded like you wanted the bill to pass. >> of course i wanted the bill to pass. >> reporter: and cruz trying to paint trump as establishment. trump and cruz will court voters in iowa today with the bitter fight dividing the party. the conservative magazine "national review" released its against trump issue. rebuke of the businessman. >> we are making an argument that donald trump has not been with conservatives, he won't be with conservatives. >> reporter: some have warmed to trump fearing cruz is more divisive. 2016 is fast becoming a race where establishment is a dirty word, even for democrats. bernie sanders surging, painting
7:21 am
>> i want to say a word on the issue that secretary clinton and i disagree on. that is the incredible power of wall street. >> reporter: and hillary clinton trying to show she is the most qualified candidate. >> we need a president who can do all aspects of the job. >> reporter: the question now? just how strong is the anti-establishment surge? >> this is a good year to be an insurgent. you hear many on both sides saying i support, fill in the blank, because nobody else says it like that. he says the truth. he is telling it like it is. >> reporter: last night, donald trump sounded off on jeb bush for putting his mom in the campaign ad. tweeting, quote, jeb desperately needed mommy to help him. jeb, mommy can't help you with isis or putin.
7:22 am

7:23 am
all right, al. we have a lot of dry air, and that will chew up the advancement of the storm. plan on light snow flurries arriving midday, steady snow through southeast mass and connecticut. and don't forget rokerthon #blizzard2016 starting at 8:30 this morning. al, thank you. changes are coming to the oscars. what the academy will now be doing to tackle diversity. and conversation with figure skater gracie gold and her sister carly. they are set up for a sibling rivalry that you have never seen before. but first this is "today" on nbc.

7:26 am
good morning to you. jeremy has a look at the forecast. are we anticipate so? >> here is the snow shield. once you get into it, it snows quite heavily. there is a lot of dry air which works in our favor preventing the heavy snow for making any significant ground to boston. light snow through the afternoon, steady is no through southeast mass and connecticut. that is where for the storm, we have the steady snow confined. you will have pockets of snow this afternoon and this evening. metro boston, plan on three inches of snow by the time winds down, and further south, the numbers go up. 16 6 to 10 inches piling up. and even higher gust will gust in between cape cod, 50 miles per hour here that might lead to some higher coastal flooding, and mai tais.

we are back on the saturday morning, january 23rd, 2016. this is a live look for you coming from the streets of washington, d.c. dylan dreyer not at the desk with us this morning because she's in the blue mobile. the snow is coming down hard. it is rough on the roads. outside of studio 1a, the snow is falling quickly out there. that does not stop. that looks thrown, by the way. i think it is tripled in size. they get extra medals today. >> a lot of the folks in the buchon bakery. >> they will wait for a long time this morning.
7:29 am
the blizzard of 2016. al is here with us in the studio. our team is spread out up and down the east coast this morning. >> the snow has only been falling in new york city for what nine hours now, it has been going strong for 24 hours in washington, d.c. nbc's miguel almaguer is in the nation's capital. miguel, good morning. >> reporter: jose, good morning. it is definitely a nasty conditions out here. the promising punch is delivered and we have already seen 13 inches of snow in the nation's capital. we are expecting more. behind me what you should be seeing is the state capitol. instead, it is fog and snow back there. it is coming in sideways and sloppy and continue for the next four hours. our hotel is a few blocks away from here. we were not able to drive to this location. cars are not able to go up and down the streets.
7:30 am
intersections. jose, we have not seen many people on the roads today. they are concerned the mayor has issued a state of emergency here. she spoke to us earlier. she said this is a potentially life threatening storm. calls have doubled in the call center. many people are staying in their homes and heeding the warnings here. every flight out of local airports seem to be canceled or delayed. that nightmare will continue for the next couple days as we see the ripple effect. the mayor says you should stay in your homes for the next 36 hours because the snowfall here is steady and it certainly not letting up anytime soon, jose. >> miguel, thank you. >> for the next 36 hours. >> the pronunciation of miguel's name. >> you have more where that came from? >> we do. on telemundo. good plug. >> we will plug your 18 shows later. let's get to dylan because we
7:31 am
she is making her way from washington back up here to new york. your heading north on i-95. is it is a snail's pace? how are the roads? >> reporter: you know we were right in downtown where the live shot was this morning, the roads haven't been touched. we are on new york avenue. this will turn into u.s. 50 and take us to i-95. the main roads have been plowed. we are moving along just fine right now. it is almost like the snow gives you more traction than if we had a layer of ice. this has been all snow here in washington, d.c. we never had that layer of ice. there is some traction. i want to point out one of the seemingly most dangers ous things i have seen is a lot of people are walking in the roads because the sidewalks have not been cleared. people show up out of nowhere and with the visibility reduced,
7:32 am
if you are walking around, make sure you know the drivers can see you. that makes it dangerous. we saw a tweet at 4:00 this morning that said the intersection between 495 and 95 about five miles from where we are was completely impassable. i hope the plows have gotten through that point right now and we see the roads open up a bit. once we get on the major highway, we will check in with you. hopefully nobody sells on else is on the roads. we will check in with you. >> dylan, you could bypass if you took the bw parkway and you could catch up with 95 there. in case that is not possible. >> a real difficult situation for a lot of the roads. >> reporter: okay. >> the winds also. >> winds are rough and it will get rougher. laguardia right now reporting snowfall rates at 3 inches per hour.
7:33 am
with this, unfortunately. you can see the reason why we had to up the amounts is the storm has actually tracked a little further north. here is what we are looking at through tomorrow. this is the latest we have. washington, d.c. and baltimore area, basically heavy snow continuing this morning. wind gusts to 50 miles per hour. snowfall, 24 inches. maybe more than that. top three snowstorms, over 100 years ago almost, 28 inches. washington, d.c. now you get to new york city and surrounding areas. 18 to 24 inches of snow. afternoon and evening. winds gusting to 55. we are probably going to see blizzard like conditions. 23.9 inches in 2006. we come very close, i think. we are dealing with coastal wind gusts. 60 to 70 miles per hour.
7:34 am
we will have coastal beach erosion and we have dry air taking over, especially in purse relive. there will be steadier snow in southeast mass, and even down there and winds down after midnight tonight. the heaviest snow looks to be still jose. >> thank you, al. outside. we will tell you about a dating storm that is happening inside this weekend. it's pretty hot. >> find someone to snuggle up with. plus, we will catch up on
