5:00 pm
this is my early guess here. an eight-inch snowstorm is a likelihood for new york city. if we get into the banding of heavier moisture, the numbers could go to a foot or more. the bullseye will be further south and west. a sharp cutoff to the north. i may be high on the numbers. this is my early guess. we have a couple of days to work on the storm. steve: understood. all right. thank you, nick. that approaching storm, bad news for neighborhoods that waited for days to plow last winter. dari: let's get to liz dahlem in park slope to explain what the city is going to do this year. >> reporter: good evening to you. third street was one of those hard hit areas. neighbors reminded me that sometimes their streets didn't see a plow for days. a lot of the time they lost power as well. it was a tough winter. they're anxious to see how the cleanup goes this time around. last winter, the city suspended alternate side of the street parking rules for weeks because
5:01 pm
snow and there was nowhere to move them. neighbors in park slope remember it all too well. >> last year was a struggle. a few of us had our power outage because a lot of that salt went down to the con ed lines. hopefully the nor'easter that comes along this weekend won't be too much of a hassle. >> reporter: with a potential storm on the way, the department of emergency management watch command center is busy. the commissioner says workers are tracking the storm and urging new yorkers to be ready. >> common sense is the key to this. i think people have just dealt with a mild winter. they're not ready for the snow. the key thing is be ready for the snow if it comes. it is coming. just not sure to what degree. >> ahead of the first winter storm, the department of sanitation released the new snow plan for the winter. it's trying a new plowing strategy called snow sectoring. side streets and high traffic areas will get plowed sooner than before. after last year, new yorkers
5:02 pm
the agency handled the snow removal. >> they have the snowplows going going. they do a good job. >> christmas trees haven't been collected. they get covered in snow. when do they get collected after the snow? >> reporter: we asked the department of sanitation about the garbage, because we saw sofas, furniture, garbage, that you normally see on the side of a city street. once they divert resources to snow removal, the garbage pickup takes a back seat. the department of sanitation does everything it can to get most of the garbage out of the streets before any storm hits. we're live in park slope, brooklyn. back to you. dari: with temperatures dropping below freezing, new york city is making an effort to get the homeless off streets. nearly 90 people, mostly all voluntary, were taken into shelters as part of the city's code blue program. this happening last night. more than 200 others checked themselves into hospitals for the night.

need of medical attention. steve: the nypd on alert after someone called police and threatened to shoot officers. dari: fox 5's antwan lewis on the upper east with the latest on this investigation. hi. good evening. good evening, everyone. the possibility of lone wolf style attacks is very real and something all police departments must take very seriously. the nypd says they received an anonymous call tuesday night, someone making a threat to shoot a police officer. the nypd told fox 5 someone connected with the threat has turned himself in, but did not identify him as the threat maker. the concern comes after a police officer was ambushed in philadelphia earlier this month by a man using a stolen gun. philadelphia received another threat shortly before the nypd. >> one of the phone calls indicated isis. not the call to philadelphia, but the phone call to new york. we are taking it serious based on what happened in philadelphia a couple of weeks ago.
5:04 pm
the nypd address this morning, bill bratton emphasized the officers have to be safe. >> there's no higher priority for me than officer safety. >> reporter: he announced a number of initiatives to move the department forward, among them, more police-community interaction to restore trust in officers, increased terrorism training and a mentoring program to identify high school age kids and put them on the path to becoming cadets and the nypd's role in addressing homelessness. >> the department is making great stride. we address the problem. it may take a while to fix it. it will be fixed. >> reporter: the commissioner said while 2015's murder rate was high, right now shootings are down. officers now having to worry about lone wolf threats will get bulletproof vests lined with advanced safe plates. >> it goes into the vest and provides additional protection
5:05 pm
which we anticipate our officers will be dealing with. >> reporter: as you come back live, the patrolmen's benevolence association says rely on your training and tactics and trust your instincts. don't hesitate to call for backup. that coming from pat lynch. we'll send it back to you. steve: better safe than sorry. thanks. a deadly attack at a university in pakistan has killed 20 people and wounded dozens. officials say four gunmen stormed the university not far from where an army run school was attacked back in december of 2014. all four gunmen were killed after a gun battle. a faction in pakistan is claiming responsibility for the latest attack. however, a spokesman for the largest taliban group disowned the faction and said the pakistani taliban was not behind it. dari: an agreement to intensify

5:07 pm
the nasdaq turned positive for a while getting a boost from biotech stocks. what's going on with the markets? it's hard to pinpoint what caused the improvement. very likely a combination of things. some bargain hunting, people who were looking for deals and bought into the earlier losses we saw. also, short covering. that's when investors bet on stocks going down. when the stocks start to go back up, those investors need to cover their losses so they buy more as it rises. the one thing we know is what caused the initial plunge today. oil. the markets are very closely tied to oil prices. when oil stocks fall, oil prices, rather, so do stocks. barrel. that's a 7 percent drop. the markets followed with it. you know the drill. we have more oil than we need across the globe. that is only expected to get worse as iran starts producing more. we will get two important updates on oil inventories. one tonight. another tomorrow morning.
5:08 pm
tomorrow we could see the markets on a rough ride again. another biggie that set a bad tone, asia. this time it was japan. the asia markets were down, but the nikkei dropped over 600 points. that put it in bear market territory. we have been worrying about economy. things across asia not looking great. you pool that together, we're off to a crappy start to 2016. historically, this is one of the worst ever. on the bright side, because there is one, unbelievable opportunities to buy. i would not say that if i didn't believe it. a great time to look at stocks and make purchases. steve: that's for sure. >> you want to be there when the elevator goes up. dari: all stocks? >> it depends on what you have already and what your interests investments. if you're making a long-term investment, you have more options. if you're looking to cash out and retire, so you need to look
5:09 pm
oil a little bit as it's low. steve: weird to think. it's too much, it's too cheap. it's a complete 180. dari: netflix, apple, the iphone. >> those are outstanding stocks. might not be a bad time to put money in. steve: thank you. dari: thank you. steve: the ex-pharmaceutical executive infamous for hiking a drug 5,000 percent was arrested. prosecutors say the 32-year-old defrauded investors and looted a drug company in order to pay the investors back. he did not explain why he hired his new legal team. dari: a campaign worker for ben carson died after a car crash. the 25-year-old was brought into a trauma center with critical injuries after the van he was in skidded on a patch of ice, flipped and then was hit by another vehicle. it happened yesterday.

those bike racks. >> reporter: there's only so much real estate in manhattan. if you ask people in this neighborhood on the upper east side, they'll tell you this citi bike rack is taking up more than its fair share. >> the worst part about it according to evelyn is the bike rack at 63rd and lexington is almost always empty. >> half of the block was packed with bike racks and bicycles. bicycles for one day and then they immediately disappeared. never to return. ever. >> reporter: the city made room for it two weeks ago. an entire city block of parking disappeared leaving drivers and service delivery trucks with nowhere to go. >> i park here because there is no -- there is no other -- you cannot park anywhere around here. >> reporter: there's little doubt the citi bike program has been a popular one with ridership soaring and bikers logging 10 million rides last year. they're adding new stations all the time. but this uber driver says it

5:16 pm
it's one of the situations -- remember the other day we were talking about the february 5th storm of 2010. just to refresh your memory, there was a very sharp cutoff to that snowstorm. there are some similarities with that storm. in that storm, new york city got a trace to two inches. staten island got five inches. central new jersey got 10 inches. washington, d.c., got 32 inches. you can see what's setting up here. i think the situation with this is going to be another sharp northern cutoff to the precipitation, which makes forecasting it very difficult as you get into the heavier bands or you do not. a in february 2003, rather similar. that produced 18 inches of snow in new york city. so we have to just keep an eye on this. it's only wednesday. a lot between now and friday is still likely to change. 37, 27 today.
5:17 pm
the wind was less. and basically an average cold january day. 69 and 0 in the records. 7:15 sunset. sets 4:58. air is still dry. clouds gathering. pressure 30.09 and steady. we have snow showers off to the west. we might get a couple of flurries this evening. this is a weak disturbance that's not meaning much towards us tonight. a couple of flurries. that's about it. we came above freezing. monticello stayed at 28. mid to upper 30s, 40 at bridgeport. 36 montauk. 37 jersey shore. now still in the middle 30s around town. up to bridgeport up to the hudson valley. 25 at monticello and 31 in sussex. the wind is less out of the northwest. figure 5 to 10 miles an hour. this weak disturbance brings snow flurries or showers overnight. it goes away, but our next system now moving out of the rockies. that's going to be the one we'll watch for friday night. it's a little slower in timing. probably more like saturday morning that it will start.
5:18 pm
31 lunchtime. 34 in the afternoon. again, we're watching our futurecast. it looks like a good day going into tomorrow. here comes the moisture. you'll see as we head in towards saturday morning, we get started at 3:00 to 5:00 a.m., somewhere in there. watch through the day. see this cutoff? this is what we have to figure out how far north it will go and as the storm intensifies into saturday night, how much more of the bands will stick around into early sunday morning. my early preliminary estimate is, again, for much less to the north, 3 to 6 inches. that may be high. 8 is a good number for the city. maybe we get amounts getting higher than that. i'll throw the 8 to 14 band in. a good measure, it's maybe central, west central new jersey through philadelphia that you get 14 to 20-plus. we'll see. clouds and snow showers tonight. 26 in town. 18 in the burbs. back to 34 in the morning. sun in the morning friday.
5:19 pm
the snow early saturday morning. heaviest from 2:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m. sunday. about 30. the other issue with the storm is high wind, coastal flooding, big problems. that will taper down sunday morning. then sun. then high 30s, low 40s, monday, tuesday, wednesday. dari: let me ask a wild question. any possibility it's a bust? nick: of course. if it shifts further south and we end up like the february storm of 2010. steve: or we're above it. nick: we're just on the edge. anything is possible. steve: all right. tricky stuff. thank you. how about this? pluto downgraded from planet, but the ninth spot in our solar system may be filled. researchers found evidence of a large planet on the outer solar system nicknamed planet 9. it has a mass 10 times the size of earth and orbits 20 times farther from the sun than its closest neighbor neptune. it would take between 10 and
5:20 pm
orbit around the sun. dari: i'm so fascinated. i could watch the whole program on it. the fact it will take five years to see it is incredible. >> is the red light robin hood back to his old tricks? steve: he has a lot of fans. steven talks about the cryptic facebook. then this: >> it's time to cut the power. dari: gamers may not know his face, but they know his voice. we go behind the scenes -- well,
5:21 pm
the artist who does dari: with video games looking and feeling more like actual movies, game studios, they've been using talented actors to make the characters, well, jump off the screen. steve: incredible. that's the video game. looks like a movie. simone boyce is here to show us what it takes to be a voiceover artist. this is like another movie industry. >> reporter: exactly. you bring up such a good point as video games become more cinematic, the desire for this feel is only going to grow.
5:22 pm
field jobs. it is very lucrative. i spent a day in a booth with a team at avalanche studios to see how kevin collins and barbara rosenblatt bring the characters to life. >> bond, we bond. >> reporter: i'm crashing a recording session with the cast of just cause 3. this is a day in the life of a video game voice actor. >> it's time to cut the power. >> three, four months. i'm going to reduce it to a smoldering wreck in less than a day. >> as an actor, it's great. you can be anyone and anything. you're not limited by the way you look. in this game, i play a guy who's taller than i am and really, you know, an action hero. >> reporter: how did you develop the dialect for rico?
5:23 pm
sort of italian, but neither. you had to split the difference. i listened to a couple of different actors, italian actors and spanish actors to get a feel for that mediterranean male sound. >> you have a way with them. i came as soon as i could. >> we appreciate your urgency. this is a transfer of power from one to many. >> reporter: do you get more fans coming up to you recognizing you from your work in grand theft auto or orange is the new black? >> well, now it's orange, which is this worldwide cultural phenomenon. i try to hone in as best i know how to the overarching themes that i hear in the specific
5:24 pm
>> it will be ours again. >> reporter: how about south african? >> black or white? it depends. if you're going to do a south african dialect, your aim is specificity. >> reporter: show me how a line would be different. >> he's talking about making a plan. >> i'm going to turn it into a smoldering wreck in less than a day. >> so more -- there's more distance between them and the mic, you're further away. you can make it more intimate. >> i'm going to turn it into a smoldering wreck in less than a day. >> reporter: are you treating the mic like it's your costar or another actor? >> it's an acting partner. >> reporter: for voice actors like kevin and barbara, their work isn't complete without a motion capture session.
5:25 pm
game industry, to seamlessly mesh their voices. that's how you get the cinematic look. steve: we're a long way from duck hunt. >> reporter: his voice, i could listen to him. dari: he gets paid well. >> reporter: thank you. steve: he is a long islander who's not a fan of red light cameras. >> this camera has gotten me numerous times for not waiting three seconds. dari: well, hear what the red light robin hood has to say about a camera being vandalized in suffolk county. and this. >> i don't know about you. steve: how hip-hop is helping kids in the bronx get through some difficult times. look around and you'll see, 61,000 sets of eyes that look at health

steve: there's no good solution. well, have you ever wondered how dogs, including these little ones, became domesticated? a big study is trying to figure that out. they came from wolves, but some believe they evolved on their own. dr. gregory larson received a 2-1/2 million dollar grant to collect dna from dogs. he says humans overstate their role when it came to domesticating wolves. >> there's been a whole lot of moving around, a whole lot of dogs from one population, it turned into a big tomato soup. steve: his team plans to sequence dog's dna and compare it to other ancient dogs, modern dogs and modern wolves to learn how they became the dogs we know today. that one has a lot of personality. i can tell. dari: a little napoleon complex. steve: very loudon the -- loud on the streets. dari: what about a dine in

5:44 pm
glenn frey's death. he made the claim in an interview with "the rap." dari: dr. manny in the house. your thoughts? >> we don't have all the facts about the medical case. let's put that first because we don't know exactly what medications he was taking. we don't have access to the medical records. however, a lot of people with arthritis do take a new classification or drugs called biologics, humira -- dari: oh, sure. >> these are the last source of treatment for rheumatoid arthritis because they're effective in controlling the symptoms. they don't cure arthritis, but they control the system. what they do is they suppress
5:45 pm
by suppressing the immune system, you can get pneumonia, inflammation of bowels. those can lead to death. steve: sounds like a horrible way. he's been sick since november. colitis, stomach pain -- >> if you look at some of the things that in the media in regard to his death and if you kind of put the two of them together, one can assume that he perhaps got some severe side biologics. they're very difficult to treat. infection. if the pneumonia is so severe -- he was admitted to columbia presbyterian. the doctors put him in a coma for a while and treat him with a lot of antibiotics. again, antibiotics can do so much if your system is shut down and you can't help yourself fight the infection -- steve: he would wake up -- >> and you end up with respiratory collapse and your
5:46 pm
so this is what the story is kind of showing a little bit. that's why all of these medications, you know, we start with arthritis. you take nonsteroidals first. there are some non-biologics that don't give you the side effects. the third is those that you mentioned. you have to be under guidance with a doctor and see if you qualify to take them and be on top of these things. they could have potential side effects. they do help with symptoms. dari: thank you for that comprehensive explanation. jamie lynn sigler says she has ms. she apparently told "people" magazine this. selves -- she was in the sopranos for 15 years. she said she's symptom free? >> she has relapsing ms. it's degeneration of the covering of the nerve of the central nervous system, the

there's an autoimmune response that attacks the covering of the nerves, so you don't have proper signals. that's why people with ms could have motor deficits and things of this sort. it could be relapsing. there's limited treatment for ms. however, she's taking taxidera, a new line of drugs that takes away some of the oxidizing stress -- i don't want to get too technical, but when the cells get attacked by the immune system, they produce this formation. these types of drugs are able to take away that inflammatory response, what they call oxidation of the cells so that you have less -- you minimize the recurrent ms symptoms and calm down the immune system and your systems improve. she's in the right age category, female, typically have ms more than men.
5:48 pm
you bring awareness to new treatments that are helping people with recurrent ms. dari: i feel like i went to medical school this afternoon. nick: welcome to fox 5. dari: now let's talk to the next technician with a ph.d. in weather. nick: no ph.d. i stopped at bachelor's. that was hard enough. listen, even having a ph.d. sometimes in this situation wouldn't necessarily help you that much more. we are talking about, again, the snow threat for the weekend and until then, just kind of a quiet forecast. today we broke the freezing mark. we got up into the mid to upper 30s in parts of the area. 40 in bridgeport, connecticut. 32 boston. 24 buffalo. 19 in pittsburgh. 21 detroit. a little colder tomorrow as this little wave, this disturbance moves along. you might see a couple of flurries south and west of new york city. why? you can see them on fox 5 sky guardian. a couple of snow showers moving through. the bigger picture shows that extends back into western pennsylvania.
5:49 pm
that to be coming through tonight. as we look at the highs, middle 30s -- the current temperatures, middle 30s around the city down to the shore. it's mid 30s to poughkeepsie and bridgeport. 35 as you get towards islip. and 35 as well as you head towards montauk. pretty uniform temperatures. the wind much less of a story today than recent days. out of the northwest at only 5, 10 miles an hour. stays that way tonight and stays that way for tomorrow. our wind gusts have disappeared, but the windchills, a little chilly, in the 20s to near 30 with whatever cold air is left out there. let's look at the map and see the players going through. this system sliding along won't be an issue. already energy is diving down into the lower plains states. this will be our developing storm as it slides towards the tennessee valley and energy kind of jumps towards the east coast and a storm forms around north carolina and tracks northeastward and brings us the snow threat as we head into
5:50 pm
indications are it will start later and hopefully gets out of here early on sunday. that's the thinking going on. highs tomorrow, middle 30s. slightly cooler than today. 20s to chicago. 40s to atlanta. 70 to new orleans. it's warmed up in south florida. they're back to the mid 70s. here's futurecast. you'll see clouds and a couple of flurries overnight. tomorrow, back to lots of sun. a good-looking day, 34. as we head towards friday, morning sun. a nice day. clouds will increase in the afternoon. after midnight, we'll get to 3, 5 in the morning, the storm moves in. there will be a sharp northern cutoff to the precipitation. we're sort of riding the edge with little precipitation to the north and heavier amounts off to the south and west. we could be talking about an 8 to 12 inch snowstorm for new york city with lesser amounts to the north and higher amounts as you move to philadelphia. 26 in the city. 18 in the burbs. lots of sun. 34 tomorrow.
5:51 pm
the snow early saturday morning. worse in the afternoon into early sunday. then sun back during sunday afternoon. windy both days. the other issue with the storm, high wind gusts, 60 plus miles an hour along the coast. coastal flooding a big problem. back to 40 degrees at some point next week. steve: thank you. dari: thank you. well, one of the cars pope francis used during his trip to the u.s. is going up for auction right there. the pontiff used two fiats during his september visit to philadelphia. he was in new york on the 25th. then he went to philly. one of them will be up for bid as part of the philadelphia auto show black tie gala next. the second fiat will be on display. there's a chance it will be auctioned off as well. proceeds will go to select archdiocese ministries and the children's hospital of pennsylvania. steve: we saw them zipping by here quite a bit. the route goes by the station. it was amazing. dinner and a movie has a new meaning at a theatre in brooklyn.
