6:37 am
>> now, meteorologist josh judge with your storm watch 9 forecast. >> it's a chilly start out there. especially in northern parts of new hampshire. those are also the areas today that will probably see the most sunshine, at least breaks of sunshine, if not partly sunny skies in northern new hampshire. but it's eight below right now and temperatures only making it up to the 20's. mid to upper 20's everywhere else. that's not a huge jump from where we are right now. we're in the teens to about 20 elsewhere. winds out there light, but they
6:38 am
through the day as that storm system makes a closer pass to the south. they strengthen the most tonight into tomorrow morning, and then tomorrow the highest winds pulling away as the storm does. so, now speaking of the storm, obviously, no snow here in new hampshire right now, just clouds, which have slowly been advancing northward. as we widen the view, you can see that the no is within sites into parts of new england and pelting new york city right now, as well as new jersey, washington d.c. getting the brunt of it, that's where the highest snowfall totals will likely be and that's where there's also a blizzard warning in effect right now. these red areas, a blizzard warning. winter storm warnings, winter weather advisories, even flood warnings along the coast all in effect thanks to this very large scale storm. however, it's not affecting us nearly as much. that's for sure. there's how large the storm is. you can see it here on the entire east coast.

6:40 am
elsewhere and much higher in the nation's capital and southern new hampshire. the other part is denver for the big patriots game tomorrow. a look at futurecast, how that will pan out. starting off the game tomorrow in the lower 40's, that area, that red dot just to the northwest of denver is where the stadium is and we'll put the futurecast in motion. there could be a couple of passing snow flurries, a snow shower or two during the game tomorrow. hopefully it won't snow the entire time, but it looks like there could be some as we go through the day. around here, the next seven days, nothing major. we've got a little light snows possible. tonight, bright and sunny, but breezy for tomorrow. party. josh: exactly. it's all happening down south. just get in your car and drive south if you want to see the snow. amy: i think they're telling us not to do that. josh: i think they are, too. amy: j 648.

7:11 am
people believe you do. >> so if i decide maybe it's not as well constructed, but i want to get heat there, what do i do. >> the first thing is you can't have drafts in the roosting area because it will leach the warm air away from their feathers, not good for them. and you can put heats in, although i don't necessarily recommend it, heat lamps and you need a generator if the power goes off because chickens don't deal well with dropping temperatures. >> in the winter time water freezes, i guess we have a solution here? >> if you have electricity, you can have heated water. i don't have electricity, what i use is a smaller waterer and i feel it in the morning and go out 1:00 or 2:00, and could cold days and change the water. >> is there a special food in winter time as opposed to

7:25 am
look at the clouds, they've been spreading northward and thinner the farther north you head. we're looking for partial sunshine northern new hampshire. some of it may come up and just give us light flurries or light snow at times this afternoon and evening, and far southern new hampshire. look at this, deep snow pack is being developed here and the heaviest snow in areas of now long island over to new york city. pennsylvania and washington and baltimore as well. these are some the areas hardest hit with the most snow, as the system right now is headed north, but as it runs into the dry, cold air of high pressure to the north, instead of moving north, it starts to move northeast and eastward, away from us and that's why it deflects away from here and we don't see very much or any snow out of it. meanwhile, lots of warnings, winter weather advisories and more, all along the mid atlantic states.
