6:11 pm
even in the new york city area, long island and along towards central new jersey. 36, 26 today. seasonally cold day. 38, 27 is where we should be. tomorrow, a pretty decent day. 31 now. humidity dry. wind coming to the northwest, backing off a little bit. we'll see a few clouds as we go into tonight. mid 30s around the city. 37 to bridgeport. 35 at montauk. 32 at sussex for the highs for the day. right now back below freezing in town. same at the jersey shore. upper 20s to the north and west. 30 poughkeepsie. 32 at bridgeport. 33 on the east end. wind northwest and coming to the north. that will be a northerly wind in our forecast as we head into tomorrow. here's the blizzard watch. covers the city and long island and southward through central new jersey. winter storm watch to the north and west of that. notice connecticut is not included in this. gives you an idea of where the sharp cutoff may exist with the
6:12 pm
fox 5 sky guardian, nothing much going on. a little bit of snow shower activity in the poconos. you can see that's diving southward and will be falling apart and not moving into the area through the night. here. this is the storm that will our way. tomorrow is your preparation day. few clouds in the mornings. teens in the burbs. 29 at lunchtime. the clouds start moving into the sky tomorrow afternoon, tomorrow night. storm moving slower as you'll see on our futurecast. looks like the precipitation won't get started until 6:00 saturday morning. you can see that coming up here. this northern edge is going to be the key to the forecast as to where the heavier bands of snow set up. i think it will be a north to south gradient that the further north you go, the less you get. the further south, that's where there could be heavy snowfall and we talked about the high wind and the threat of coastal flooding. that's going to be a big element
6:13 pm
that will last through saturday night into sunday. here's sunday late in the day. the storm is pulling away. the wind will be blowing and there will be blowing and drifting of snow. the strong northeasterly wind gets in play here. more particularly saturday into sunday. that's the conditions will occur. this is still my thoughts on the snowfall. this is subject to change. we'll be watching new data in the next 36 hours to come in. that's why sometimes ahead of the game, you get a little gun-shy when you make the forecasts. there's the dynamic storm going on and there could be a variety of changes to the snowfall. here's the north-south gradient. less in the hudson valley, clipping north jersey and southern connecticut. one to three inches. from north to south, you could have four inches of snow in central westchester and six to nine in northern manhattan. that's very distinctly possible.

ernie: big football weekend, a classic match-up. russ: let's call it the 17th classic. it will be the 17th time that peyton manning and tom brady go head to head. you know, the great many of them with peyton was when he was with the colts. but it will be the 17th time in the history of these two first ballot hall of famers all time greats. ernie: they're great quarterbacks. who do you think has the edge over the years? russ: not perhaps. the edge over the years, ernie, you have to give it to tom brady because in the 16 previous meetings, brady has the edge of 11 to five. 11 wins to five. however, over the past 10 seasons, it's five and five. in the playoffs, which this is a playoff game, they are two and
6:19 pm
so it really is a classic match-up. for a couple of reasons. ernie: doesn't get any better. this is good stuff. russ: we know about deflategate with the patriots. you have brady. the immediate would love brady to hoist the lombardi trophy and have commissioner roger goodell hand it to him. on the flipside is peyton manning. a lot of people didn't know if this was it for peyton. they still don't know. there was a time he wasn't starting. he had been hurt. brock was starting. then he leads to a big victory. ernie: what do you think will happen after the season? russ: nobody knows. he was asked. he said listen, it's done me well not to look far in advance. he doesn't want to say. if you were asking me, i would say should he win the super bowl
6:20 pm
bowl, i think he rides off into the sunset. ernie: panthers and cardinals, right? russ: that's a big game. it will be the first time in the history you're talking about two quarterbacks, cam newton and carson palmer. it's the first time two former heisman trophy quarterbacks are meeting in a playoff game. ernie: and rex ryan making news. russ: katherine smith is getting -- it's been called the quality control coach for special teams. basically -- i'm not poo-pooing in. she was interns for years with the jets. it's more of a clerical job. she's not on the grounds coaching. ernie: it's a move. russ: it opens up the avenue for different people. ernie: we know money is important. but can you have too much of it? russ: not enough.

6:23 pm
>> doesn't change everybody. ernie: it depends on who the person is. >> i guess so. but it's always complicated. ernie: how do you feel? can you ever be too rich? >> i think i -- you know, i'm not -- i think i can handle it, but i don't want too much. i don't want other problems. ernie: can you ever have too much money? >> no. ernie: tell me why you feel that way. >> it's the best thing in the world. you can do what you want, go where you want. ernie: never have too much? >> can't ever have too much. i'm looking for it. ernie: i hope you find it. >> thank you. ernie: okay. bye-bye. what do you think? go to my facebook page and let me know. i'm interested. that's it for now. us. i'm ernie anastos. for all of us in studio 5, upstairs in our control room, big john, give us a wave. amazing. thanks for joining us. have a great night.
