8:02 am
can expect stormy weather or brutal cold. or worst case scenario, both. let's go to rob in hard-hit boston. good morning, rob. >> reporter: good morning, paula. they're scrambling here trying to get rid of the snow. behind me, one of the many snow melters bought or borrowed from other states in the region. it's been going nonstop for the last five days. 30,000 tons of snow melted. meanwhile, the poun tan mountain of snow behind it continues to grow. they've been scrambling. they're trying to get rid of this snow though make room for more snow that's coming tonight. the race is on. cities across the northeast desperately working to clear the aftermath of weeks of brutal snowstorms before another round potentially brings over a foot more snow. all the digging done in the bitter, freezing cold. >> in the city like this, there's no place to put it. that's the part that's tough to contend with. >> reporter: boston suspending

8:04 am
all right. let's break down the advisories. blizzard warning is up for all of eastern new england. the coastline especially. winter storm warnings for upper central new england. winter weather advisories stretching all the way down to the deep south. here's your storm. we'll increase the snow throughout the day today. the winds won't increase until later on tonight and tomorrow. we bomb this thing out just south of long island. it will have the pressure equivalent of a category 2 hurricane. and that's why we fear we could get hurricane-strength wind gusts, especially along the cape. power outages are a big deal. a foot or more from boston into maine. dropping off dramatically as you get to new york. three to five inches of snow there. here we go. four weekends in a row. if this blizzard verifies, it will be the first time in recorded history in boston they have had two blizzards in one season. dan, paula? >> as we have said, it's continued payback for the patriots winning the super bowl. rob, we do have to say. we here in the studio are very
8:05 am

8:07 am
