we might get a little heavier burst of snow earlier this afternoon. that's going to factor in how much overall we see. 31 degrees for your temperature at 2:00. a few light snow showers still around at 5:00, but i think we might see a tapering trend by then, so we'll let you know exactly how much snow we're expecting. we have a new snow map for you coming up here in just a few minutes. >> we're all looking forward to that. thanks so much, brian. dpw crews have been working nonstop to clear as possible for you. crews had a shift change at midnight and have been working through the night salting and treating our roadways. and if you're parked in a snow route, during the snow emergency, you'll be ticketed or even towed. some mps schools will make playgrounds available for overnight parking, and the final list, just head to tmj4.com. let's take a look at the current road conditions using the 511
5:03 am
if you see green, that's good, but what you want to see is blue. that means that it's snow-covered. red is where ice is, so we don't see any of that, so things look pretty clear right now at this time. so travel on those roadways is not advised. here's a look at the we energy's power outage map. we take a look here. we can only just see a couple i believe in racine, a few outages, and we don't know if that is related to anything snowat and here's a live look at mitchell international airport once again this morning. all flights to and from o'hare international airport to chicago have been canceled. there's also a flight to minneapolis from milwaukee that's been canceled, that snow is causing travel issues this morning as you see the snow falling on that light post there. you can stay up-to-date on the latest with the storm as well as school and church closings at our website, tmj4.com and by downloading our mobile app. new this morning,

5:06 am
how are you guys doing? >> we are keeping up, but we are bringing additional equipment later in today, because we know that we'll be getting more snow all day on sunday, so we want to be ready for that, and we will plan to have have additional pieces on the streets. >> do you suggest people stay off the roads in the city if they can? >> agreed, yes, and if you have to go out, please go slow, please give plenty of room to our plow drivers, let them do their job. but if you don't have to go out, settle in for >> same great advice. sandy rush walton, thank you so much. we'll check back with you in the next hour. i really appreciate your time. >> thank you. coming up, the cia releases a new alert that shows tampering with our presidential election. it looks beautiful out your window, but not so fun to drive in, as dpw just warned you. we'll show you how much total snow your city will end up with

5:08 am
5:09 am
5:10 am
team 4 meteorologist brian niznansky. >> all righty, the time now is 5:09, almost 5:10. we are taking a live look. looks like 4394 at mitchell street. you see some pavement there. that is a good sign. i think overall, we're going to have some pretty good snow amounts, but the snow is going to fall, light to moderate crew, that the crews on the roadways are going to be able to attack it at times durin today. we're not going to get hit with several inches in an hour. it's going to be over such a long period of time. the storm 4 max radar across southeastern wisconsin, a couple things to notice. first i want you guys to see some of this clearing to the southwest. we'll see if eventually that moves into at least some of our south western counties later on this morning, you could see a lull in the action, but also some deeper blues indicating heavier snows, and this is mainly moderate snow from beaver dam stretching to just southwest of west bend here, but the
5:11 am
probably snowing at the heaviest rate as we speak. all right, your storm timeline from, say, now until 10:00 a.m., light to moderate snow. another inch of snow during that timeframe from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m., light to moderate snow continues, another inch of snow during that timeframe, and then from 2:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., there is the potential for a heavier burst of snow. and by 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., off. so we'll let you know what this all adds up to, coming up in a few minutes, julia. >> thank you so much. president elect donald trump's transition team is pushing back reports that russia helped trump win the election. the cia concluded russia helped trump win by releasing hacked democratic campaign e-mails. trump's campaign responded by say, "these are the same people that said saddam hussein had weapons of mass destruction".
5:12 am
business world, the secretary of state role, he has apparently chosen rex tillerson, the chairman and ceo of exxon mobi the gas company has operations in several countries. time right now is 5:12. this sunday morning, a lot still alive, including what other states in the midwest are doing once they took the brunt of the storm. plus, slow going out there this morning. you can take a live look outside. very far out there, you can see a little bit of capital drive here. currently, we'll see what is the heaviest snow with your forecast
5:13 am
5:14 am
5:15 am
>> julia: good morning to all of you. we're waking up to a winter wonderland this morning. doesn't it look so picturesque? looks so nice. it will continue all day, as we are under a winter storm warning for all of southeast wisconsin. until 8:00 tonight. brian niznansky has your full forecast in just a moment, but first, some things to do if you venture outside.
5:16 am
on. the milwaukee county historical society, it's free for the public and a great chance to get a picture with santa and mrs. claus. you can also see the historical center decked out, that goes from 3:00 until 10:00 today. the first ever merry and bright holiday parade is going on tonight in downtown milwaukee. it's certainly a great day for it with snow. that starts at 5:00 tonight. what i really like, this weather is that it doesn't feel like a blizzard. >> brian: no. >> julia: and there's not a lot of wind. >> brian: we've certainly seen way worse. you hit it on the head with a wind. the wind not much of a factor with this system. but the snow is starting to pile you have. lagrange and walworth county, close to half a foot. got about four inches outside the studios here on the east side and north side of milwaukee. you can see four inches.
5:17 am
of snow. whitewater two inches of snow. oconomowoc, you could see more than what you're seeing if you're nearby one of those locations. we're actually zoomed in up towards beaver dam, where you can see it is snowing pretty good up there, as we widen the view a bit, you can see across southeastern wisconsin. these lighter shades of blue for snow. the deeper the shade of blue, the heavier the snow, and you can see -- i would say the heaviest of snow actually falling from beaver dam through the north side of milwaukee. pretty much right through milwaukee county. let's zoom in again here. you can see again, north of whitefish bay, so the bay side area. possibly extending over towards brown deer, and up towards mequan. by 7:00, most of us still seeing
5:18 am
bit of drying across our southwestern spots. we might get a lull in the action, and that lull works its way east towards racine and kenosha by 9:00. still snowing from 94 and north, but then watch what happens by midday. that lull quickly comes to an end by 11:00, snow fills in again across southeastern wisconsin. 1:00, it is still snowing pretty good, and we might actually end with a pretty good burst of snow here later on this afternoon. finale. the heaviest of snow could be on the tail end of this system, and by 7:00, most of us clearing out. possibly still some snow for racine and kenosha, by 10:00, completely clear. our computer models showing the potential for three, four, five inches of snow for most, maybe even a little bit more down towards racine and kenosha if we end up seeing that heavier burst on the end of this system.
5:19 am
highest amounts. nine to 11 inches of snow, while most of us in that six to nine-inch total snow range. winter storm warning remains in effect for all of southeastern wisconsin until 8:00 p.m. this evening, and i think things start to shut down by then. currently in kenosha, it's 27 degrees. snow is flying, winds out of the south at 10 miles per hour. in milwaukee, it's 27. the temperatures have actually been rising a bit through the night, and that will continue. winds out of the south at 6 miles per hour. weather headlines, snow today. some slick and snow-covered roadways through the day. snow should be gone, should be out of here for most of us by 8:00. wider view, you can see the snow still extends back through lacrosse, through minnesota, north and south dakota. area of low pressure still centered across the plains. that's why we still have such a long amount of time still with this snow. all right, by 10:00, area of low pressure, going to eventually track right across northern illinois and southeastern wisconsin. snowing through the entire day today. you can see how things come to
5:20 am
a dry day on monday, but this cold front here, it's going to be a doozy. it is going to cool us down big-time by tuesday and into wednesday and thursday. so your forecast for today, a high temperature of 32 degrees. that light powdery snow may get a little bit slushy this afternoon. snow continues three to five inches additional. six to ten total for the milwaukee metro area. for tonight, 22. flurries early, otherwise mostly cloudy. here is your seven-day forecast. 25 on ay get on monday, with partly cloudy skies. now, early on tuesday, a few snow showers and a high of only 13. a high of only 10 on wednesday. 12 on thursday. we could have some below zero numbers. and windchills could be anywhere from 15 to 25 below zero by wednesday, julia, and our next potential for accumulating snow looks to be next weekend again.
5:21 am
>> julia: wow, this is only the beginning. we're not the only ones getting hit with snow. this is what people in iowa and illinois have been dealing with. that's right. that region is only expected to get three to six inches. north of the quad cities could receive six to nine inches of snow there. several cities in the area are under snow emergencies. almost three feet of snow fell on one northeastern ohio town yesterday. the town of kurtland received 32 inches of snow. that's believed that the town has t entire country right now. the snow is expected to fall there this morning and keep falling until early tomorrow. two greenfield police officers are injured after their squad was rammed by another car. police tell us the officers were on patrol on west leighton avenue when an 18-year-old driver went over a median and struck them. speed may have been a factor in this crash.
5:22 am
bucks avoid another come from behind loss for the second straight night? your answer next. let's take another live look outside. this is mitchell international. fond du lac and sheboygan counties have been updated to winter storm [ tower pinging ] [ whistling ] we've got a problem, friend. half off any smartphone for anyone who switches? what's the problem? the naughty list shouldn't get deals! t anyone who switches gets half off of any smartphone. even these? yeah, any smartphone. call the big guy! [ bell dings ] santa? no, jingles. [ knuckles crack ] [ spits ] ooo. ouch. [ neck cracks ] [ darien ] switch and get half off any smartphone.
5:23 am
5:24 am
5:25 am
>> brian: the time is 5:34. we are taking -- 5:24. it's going to be one of those days. hey, stay inside, watch a little bit of football, maybe have some holiday decorating to do. perfect day for it. you can see here on the storm 4 max radar, everybody's seeing a our northwestern spots, up towards beaver dam and over towards hartford this morning. total snow, 6 to 9 inches for most of southeastern wisconsin. most of us going to fall within that range, but there could be some higher amounts down towards walworth, racine, and kenosha counties, especially if we see an extra little burst of snow this afternoon. so your forecast for today, snow will continue to fly. temperatures in the 20s.
5:26 am
30s. but again, we're looking at the snow in green bay as well. if you're making the trip, give yourself extra time. make sure you have your h headlights on, keep your speeds down. it will be snowing at kickoff. by the fourth quarter, maybe tapering off to just a couple flurries. here's daybreak sports. >> good morning, everyone. last night, the bucks came up short in washington when they lost to the wizards that triple put the bucks up 85-81. he had five of them yesterday. he led the bucks with 28 points. this jumper put them up 94-88, but the wizards would come back. john wall hits the jumper. he had 24 for them. the wizards win it 110-105. how about the golden eagles hosting the wisconsin badgers. we'll go ahead and pick this one
5:27 am
23-16. marquette would answer. marquette up 40-35 at the break. second half, marcus howard drills a triple. he had 22 points for marquette. the badgers turning it up in that second half. koenig with the triple. and the three ball was working for wisconsin. first it's zach showalter, then it's nigel hayes. and then the outlook pass to khalil iverson. he jams it. badgers win 93-84 on saturday. the green bay packers host the seattle seahawks today at lambeau field, and the one player they'll want to contain on special teams and offense for seattle is the dynamic tyler locket. >> locket brings a whole different dimension to this game, particularly in this weather, and he's the focus. we need to win that part of the game.
5:28 am
very important in this victory sunday for us, and i figure really a focus -- technical focus now, so we can't let them grab us, we can't let them execute those blocks and end the return game. >> lamar jackson. >> louisville quarterback lamar jackson became the youngest heisman trophy winner ever when he won the award yesterday in new york city. the sophomore quarterback is only 19 years old. and you've got the packers hosting the lambeau field. that's your daybreak sports. have a great day, everybody. >> julia: rod, thanks so much. coming up in our next half-hour, brian niznansky has another look at what to expect this snow day, as it all goes along and another live look outside. it looks like the salt is doing its job. you can see that two or three-lane roadway or interstate has been brought down to pretty much one. and here's another look.
5:29 am
cam. that's a picture of the morning
5:30 am
5:31 am
right now from milwaukee, this is today's tmj 4, live at daybreak. >> julia: a check of your forecast in just a moment, but first, let's take a look at your top stories. tcw crews have been working nonstop to keep the roads as clear as possible for drivers. crews had a shift change at midnight, and they've been working through the night salting and treating your roadways. the city has deployed up to 175
5:32 am
if you're parked on a snow route during a snow emergency, just a heads up, you'll be ticketed or towed. some schools are making playgrounds and parking lots available for overnight parking, but a final list of the schools that do that, just head to tmj4.com. a house fire yesterday. this morning, a couple is homeless, grieving the loss their dog. there were no fire hydrants in the area, so firefighters had to shuttle in water. let's switch gears and take a live look outside. here at fort washington, you can see the cooling of the water there. that makes me nervous. >> brian: yeah, the good news, though, is that temperatures will be on the rise, so that salt will continue to have an effect, keeping the roads a little bit clear. but, of course, as julia just
5:33 am
snow-covered roads expected through the day today. here's a look at your weather alert. one change from last night. fond du lac and sheboygan counties added to the winter storm warning, so all of southeastern wisconsin under that winter storm warning. most of us until 8:00 p.m. this evening. let's go through the storm 4 max radar. you can see right now, a light to moderate snow for all of southeastern wisconsin. one thing i want you guys to notice, though, let's move farther southwest, and you can see some clearing across northwestern illinois, towards platville. this clearing eventually makes its way into parts of southeastern wisconsin, that will keep our snow totals down. if that clearing stays southwest of us, then our snow totals will be much higher. could be the difference between, say, six inches or nine inches of snow when things are all said and done. the storm 4 max radar. let's zoom in a little bit. you can see north of milwaukee, up towards grafton, that appears to be where we have some heavier snow. now, this equates to
5:34 am
hour, which would be about an inch of snow per hour rate here, so this is one of the heavier batches of snow. let's step through your forecast through the day today. by 7:00, it's snowing. by 11:00, probably still snowing, unless we see that clearing move in. again, across our far southern spots, it's a pretty good chance, down towards walworth, racine, and kenosha counties, you could see that get hit with more snow this afternoon. by 2:00, 31 des. taper off a bit across parts of the area. 31 degrees the temperature by then. so we'll break down the latest computer model runs. how much total snow we can expect coming up here in just a few minutes, julia. >> julia: brian, thanks so much. let's take a look at the current road conditions right now. we're using the 511 map. it's a live look. green is what you want to see, but we see a lot of blue, and that means that the roads are snow-covered. if you go on there, red is where ice is an issue, and black means
5:35 am
advised, and we're not seeing either of those, just like we would guess, very snow-covered. we'll keep you up to date on any power outages in our area. let's take a look at the we energies outage map. it looks like we don't have many outage, just one right now in racine county, and in that area, just very few outages, and we don't even know if this is snow-related. so remember, it is now the law in wisconsin to turn on your headlights, or if it's snowing, there's any condition that bridges and elevated roads can be icy and slick. just remember that when pavement is in good condition, and go slow. remember the posted speed limits. that's for when it's perfect out. when it's completely dry. that's not the case today. and the first winter storm of the system is giving dane county a chance to try its new ecofriendly snowplows. the county is saving money by using plows that run on compressed natural gas.
5:36 am
gallon. >> when we invest in renewable technology, we're keeping much more of that money in dane county and in wisconsin. it's a win-win. the taxpayers win, and it helps protect our environment. >> julia: the county plans to convert all trucks to natural gas by 2023. boys and girls club of greater milwaukee is bringing smiles to thousands of children. volunteers gift wrapped presents at all the gifts will be delivered to 44 boys and girls clubs during holiday parties this month. that's great. the holiday tree for dozens of children suffering from life-threatening illnesses. the kids with a flight to the north pole at mitchell airport. how fun is that? the fantasy flight was sponsored by skylist airlines and funded through donations. a good thing that they did it before the storm, huh? just in time for the holidays,
5:37 am
is offering these k9 plush dogs. they're available. all the funds go directly to their k-9 unit. that looks great. today's tmj4 is proud to partner with the hunger task force and raymond james and associates is bringing you home for the holidays. this virtual food drive is a perfect way to help those in need, by donating a meal. it runs through december 30th. just head t force.org or look for the home for the holidays button on tmj4.com. the time is 5:37 this sunday morning. much more still to come on "live at daybreak", including what people are doing to honor the late john glenn. another live look outside. you can see the snow is falling hard. and you can see a little bit of capital drive, which is pretty
5:38 am
5:39 am
5:40 am
>> brian: the time now is 5:40, and we are looking live in west bend, and it is a winter wonderland this morning, across
5:41 am
most of you waking up to at least a few inches of snow. we've got a lot more to go for today. storm 4 max radar across southeastern wisconsin. you can see a light to moderate snow for everybody. these darker blues indicating a little bit heavier snow, and right now, that's centered across some of our northern spots. through the day today, snow continues for most. 30 degrees by noon. gets to be maybe a little bit heavier. we could end things with 32 degrees. so your forecast across the area, snow for everybody. 31 degrees in waukesha. 30 in sheboygan. we'll let you know exactly when the snow comes to an end in your neighborhood and how much we can expect across southeastern wisconsin, coming up, julia. >> julia: and that packers game is going to be pretty interesting. thanks so much, brian. two bombings in turkey outside a stadium after a soccer match have killed at least 29 people and injured more than 150
5:42 am
civilians are among the dead. turkey's prime minister says ten people have been arrested, but no one's claimed any responsibility here. late anderson john glenn will lie in state at the ohio state house in columbus this friday. a memorial service will be held the following day at ohio state university. our university board still needs to be approved for the ceremony. glenn died last week at the age of 95. he became the fir orbit the earth in 1962 and later served as a u.s. senator. coming up, we'll tell you about some of the stories that have people talking in milwaukee this morning. and it's not just the snow. meteorologist brian niznansky is back with a full rundown of those snow totals and what to expect as the day continues. as we take a look at the snow coming down in pretty good clips here at mitchell international airport. and here's your winning lottery
5:43 am
5:44 am
5:45 am
5:46 am
>> julia: welcome back. models walked down the sidewalk, the participants show said they wanted to highlight the importance of taking care of the environment in whatever ways one lucky person will get to spend christmas at the iconic home from the movie "a christmas story." the winner gets to bring three guests. they'll get more than 800 dollars in gifts, including a replica of the famous leg lamp. we all know that one. there it is right now. the winning bid for this day was $2,600. hollywood legend kirk douglas
5:47 am
douglas has been nominated for best actor three times, receiving the honorary oscar in 1996. he's celebrating his birthday by announcing a new book, actually, written with his wife of 62 years called "kirk and anne." but one thing, it's going to hit us when we look outside. >> brian: if you haven't looked out your window, go ahead and so. this isn't going to be a winter storm where we get hammered for heavy snow for six hours and then it's done, it's going to be a long period of time of this light to moderate snow. >> julia: it can trick us. >> brian: it certainly can. it doesn't mean that we're not going to have any issues. it's just going to last so long today. i think we're going to probably have snow until around 6:00, 7:00 this evening, and if you're headed up to green bay, of course, it's going to be snowing there as well. probably less snow than what we see here. but snowing pretty good during
5:48 am
at noon, 26, close to kickoff, we'll look for still snowing pretty good, and by the fourth quarter, i think tapering off to some flurries, but it will likely be a winter wonderland at lambeau field as well. snow totals so far across southeastern wisconsin. now, i want to note that a lot of these measurements here are getting pretty old, and it is snowing at a good clip, so certainly could have more than what you're seeing here. but tmj4 right before the snow started, i measured about four maybe we're at about four and a half now. lagrange and walworth county close to half a foot of snow. the storm 4 max radar across southeastern wisconsin. you can see snow continues to fly for everybody. a light-to-moderate snow. but also notice the back edge. some clearing to our southwest, and eventually that clearing could move into at least some of our southern counties. seeing a lull in the action before more snow returns later on this afternoon. we're zoomed in, though, up to the north where we do have some
5:49 am
towards grafton and west bend, indicating that heavier snow. let's step through our computer model here. step through the time, and we'll time out the snow through your day today. 7:00, snowing good. except for some of that clearing could be moving towards jamesville and lake geneva. potentially some of that clearing at 9:00 down towards kenosha and racine. but eventually, don't be fooled, that snow returns for everybody. by 11:00, it's snowing pretty good. in fact, i think maybe this afternoon could be the heightf guess. grand finale with the snow. notice these darker blues, especially south of 94, and then eventually by 4:00, we start to notice that back edge starting to work across southeastern wisconsin, and by 8:00, i think most of the area will be completely clear of the snow. additional snow here with our computer models. three, four, five inches for most of the area, possibly additionally more across our southern spots, and that's why
5:50 am
most of us, though, in that six to nine-inch range. our weather alert is a winter storm warning until 8:00 p.m., covering all of southeastern wisconsin. this is a live look in west bend where the snow is flying. you can see the snow-covered roads in downtown. 25 the current temperature in west bend. currently in milwaukee, a little bit warmer at 27. the temperature is actually working its way up today. all right, let's go through the forecast. weather headlines hear. snow all day today, slick and the snow should be gone by 8:00 p.m. as we widen the view, the snow extends back towards minnesota, north and south dakota. besides that bit of clearing, we've got a ways to go here. let's go through our future forecast wider view here. you can see this area of snow continues across much of the state through our day today. area of low pressure tracks right across southeastern wisconsin. we clear out. tomorrow will be a sunny day. but approaching us tomorrow
5:51 am
front, and it is going to be very chilly by tuesday, wednesday, and thursday. so your forecast for today, an additional three to five inches of snow, bringing most of our totals in that six to ten-inch range in the milwaukee metro area. 32 for your high for tonight. our low temperature of 22. flurries early, otherwise mostly cloudy. yourself your seven-day forecast. monday, best day of the week. partly cloudy, 25. look at this cold front. wednesday. it will be windy, too. i think windchills will be anywhere from 15 to 25 below zero wednesday morning. thursday morning, a low of three below zero with a high of only 12. and more snow possible next friday and into saturday, julia. >> julia: it's just going to get worse. that's all i've got to say. >> brian: you knew after november we were in for it. >> julia: i know, it's time. let's take a look at the current road conditions. you can use the 511 map. the green is what you want to
5:52 am
all we see is blue on the roads right now. that means that they're snow covered. the red is what you don't want to see, or the black. that's when there's an ice issue, or if the roadways are not advised at all. let's take a look at our power outages now in our area. there's a few outages in racine county, up to a thousand at this time. you can go on the power outage map and we have links at tmj4.com. as we head to break, another live look outside. you're taking a snow is coming down at a really good clip now. it's going to interrupt the entire day, so don't get caught
5:53 am
5:54 am
5:55 am
>> brian: the time is 5:55. a live look in milwaukee, where the snow is coming down. i think the milwaukee area now in that four to five-inch range. many of you waking up to at least a few inches of snow already this morning, and we have a lot more to go. a couple things to notice. notice this back edge of the
5:56 am
our southern tier counties, but don't be fooled. if you do see a break in the snow, more is expected to return by midday and this afternoon. we're right in on the north side of milwaukee. you can see whitefish bay, bay side. this darker shade of blue indicating a heavier rate. it equates to at as how much snow are we expecting? i think most of the area going to be within that six to nine-inch range, but possibly more across our southern spots. we could have some nine, ten, maybe 11-inch totals down towards lake geneva, racine, and kenosha. your forecast for today, snow continues through the day. we'll take a closer look at when the snow gets out of here coming up here in a few minutes. >> looking forward to that. >> julia: the holidays can be
5:57 am
make even santa squirm. julie eamon, she is actually a professional match maker. >> yeah, at it's just lunch. >> julia: she joins us live to share more. you kind of need a honey to snuggle up to. >> on these cold days, it makes it a lot warmer. the holidays, we were just talking before, is a great time of the year to connect with someone. it's festive. it's fun. it can be a bit overwhelming also, so the only time i'll ever tell a client to potentially hold off on meeting someone new is if they're just not ready to focus on someone, then you may want to wait until after the new year. >> julia: i was so worried, during that time, so many of my friends break up during this time, but actually, this is the peak time for your business. >> julia: it really is. a lot of couples are ready to mingle as a single in the hope of connecting with someone.
5:58 am
festivities, parties, it's a great opportunity to meet other singles. and i'm always telling my clients at it's just lunch that you have to break out of your comfort zone, so do something new. say yes to those holiday parties and get out there, because if you're doing the same thing with the same people, it's going to be hard to meet someone new. don't let the holiday blues get the best of you, if you are single. it can be a difficult time of the year if you don't have anyone to keep you warm on a day like today. so don't lett you. go to those holiday parties to get out of that funk. pamper yourself a little bit. it's always a good idea. and just be respectful of yourself. focus on the positive. it's a really attractive trait to singles. >> julia: and if it's a new relationship, you know, should you be going to the family's house right away, or is that too much? do you think it's too overwhelming for some people? >> you know, family and romance don't always go hand in hand, so it's important to take a step
5:59 am
if you are going to meet the family, put your best foot forward and impress the host. whether it's an aunt or mom, i always suggest bringing a hostess gift, helping to clean up dishes after dinner, or maybe bringing a dish to pass. it's a great opportunity to showcase who you are, put your manners forward, and respect the person you're with and their family. don't overstay your welcome. that can get a little tricky this time of year. some pockets of time to yourself. it's going to make things better for the both of you. >> julia: very good advice. that's the key to the holidays and beyond. thank you so much. >> thank you for having me. >> julia: i really appreciate it. >> thank you for having me. >> julia: good advice here. we have a lot still ahead. brian niznansky is back again with another look at your snowy forecast. and also, we have pete live out on the roads taking a look at what it looks like in milwaukee right now. he'll join us with a live
6:00 am
6:01 am
i'm pete zervakis.. pete pete --
6:02 am
continues to fall. i'm pete zervakis. i'll give you a look at our local interstates. >> julia: plus, crews working to keep the roads safe as possible for you. we have an update on their strategy. there are many people who have been outside despite the weather. "live at daybreak" continues now. the snow continues to hamper parts of southeast wisconsin. we have pete zervakis live in milwaukee county. meteorologist brian niznansky has been since yesterday morning. we'll start with brian. brian, what are the snow totals so far, and how much more could people see? >> brian: one of the higher amounts is in walworth county, close to a foot of snow already. most of the area waking up to three, four inches of snow, including right here in milwaukee. one change from last night, winter storm warnings still in place for everybody in southeastern wisconsin, but up towards fond du lac and sheboygan, you've been added to the winter storm warning.
6:03 am
there. still seeing up to six inches of snow. the storm 4 max radar across southeastern wisconsin, you can see the snow is flying for everybody, a light to moderate clip, but notice this back edge here. we're going to keep an eye on this. we might actually see a lull in the action, at least moving south of 94 later on this morning, which will bring down our overall snow totals, but it's still going to be a pretty good one for everybody. let's zoom in at some of our heavier snows. we're up to the nono towards port washington, this darker shade of blue indicating that heavier snow at about an inch per hour. we're at a liquid precipitation rate of .08 inches per hour, and that equates to with the dry snow, at least an inch per hour snowfall rate, but in general, a light to moderate snow across the area. let's go through the storm timeline now. so from now on until 10:00 a.m., light to moderate snow, in general, another inch of snow during that timeframe. this 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
6:04 am
this is such a prolonged period of snow. we could actually end with the heaviest burst of snow for us later on this afternoon, about two to three inches of snow between two and 6:00 p.m., and then by 6:00 p.m., to 9:00 p.m., the know starting to taper off. so, again, this is going to be a good one for us here in southeastern wisconsin. we're just getting going. we'll see what this all adds up to, and eventually when the snow. co-s to an end, coming up in a few minutes, julia. >> julia: the snow has been falling steadily since 6:00 last roads even before the first flakes began to fall. pete zervakis is live in milwaukee county with more, and it looks like people are heeding the warning. looks like you're the only one out there, other than the plows. >> pete: we're at 10th and wells downtown, actually standing above 43. if you want to take a look here behind us, this is a pretty good snapshot of how the roads were coming downtown this morning. there is some snow on them. they are a little slick. you definitely want to be careful, especially when you're turning, accelerating, or
6:05 am
plows have been through here, and actually, we had a pretty easy time getting to where we're standing. if you take a look right at my feet. the sidewalks here right above 43 have been cleared pretty regularly it appears as well. we've got a good visual for you here behind. you'll see the sign for 43 north. we're going to zoom in on that just to show you how steadily the snow continues to fall here. it really is coming down a lot. that's pretty much the easiest way to say it. we also want to show you a little bit of a highway this morning. as you can see, it's pretty similar to what you'll see on the roads downtown. there is some snow on the highway. it's a little slick, but overall, it's been plowed. it's not like the snow is building up on the highway. we should mention, according to wisconsin emergency management, there are about 18,000 crashes a year over the last five years on days when the roads are covered with snow or ice during the winter, so as you all know already, just take your time getting places, maybe leave car length and a half between you
6:06 am
to give you some time to stop. live in milwaukee county, pete zervakis, today's tmj4. >> julia: giving us a great picture of what it's like out there. thanks so much, pete. on top of all the plows on city streets, more than 100 garbage and recycling trucks mounted with plow blades will actually be out starting this hour. we're joined by sandy rush walton, the communications director for milwaukee dpw. sandy, thank you so much for being on the phone with us once again this hour. >> my pleasure. >> julia: so can y updates? what is on the road right now and where are you guys going right now? are you guys focused on the main roads at this time? >> our salt trucks with plow blades mounted are on the main streets right now. and now, as of 6:00 a.m., we are adding garbage trucks with plow blades mounted, and they will be out on the side streets around the city of milwaukee. >> julia: what is your suggestion for people who are outside right now? do you think that people should
6:07 am
>> we're recommending that if you do not have to be out, please stay home. if you do have to go out, be slow, take it easy, give a lot of extra room around other vehicles, especially our plow trucks. >> julia: and do you guys think that you are staying on top of this? we've seen some areas that are getting about an inch of snow about an hour, or an eighth of an inch. so can you tell me how you guys are dealing with that? >> we are doing our best at this point. we'vo equipment out on the road. we're adding them all the time, so we are doing our best to keep up with the snow. >> julia: okay, thank you, sandy, i appreciate it. if you are parked in a snow route during a snow emergency, you'll be ticketed and towed during snow emergencies. some schools make playgrounds and parking lots available for overnight parking. to find a list of those schools, head to tmj4.com.
6:08 am
map. it's a live look. green is what you want to see, but no surprise here. what we see is a lot of blue. that means the roads are snow covered. red is where ice is an issue and black means don't travel on those roadways. we don't see that right now. we're continuing to follow any possible power outages this morning. taking a live look at the we energy power outage map. we saw in racine county, there were at least three different separate power outages. we don't know if it is weather-related, but we s without power this morning right now. and let's take a live look outside at mitchell international airport. it just keeps oncoming down there. all flights to and from o'hare international airport in chicago are canceled. there's also a flight to minneapolis from milwaukee that's been canceled, too, so keep an eye on that if you are going to be picking up any loved ones or dropping them off this morning. you can stay up to date on the latest on this storm as well as school and even church closings
6:09 am
also by downloading our mobile app. new this morning, firefighters were very busy this morning in the cold, fighting a house fire on milwaukee's south side. police tell us this home was just bought last week, and the owner had been doing renovations. including the fireplace, the firefighter suffered minor injuries in this blaze, but no one else was hurt. a woman who was missing since last tuesday has been found dead. milwaukee police have been searching for 30-year-old sabrina allen, who they say had health problems. her body was found inside a home near palmer and townsend. police are only telling us that they're investigating. coming up on "live at daybreak," the cia releases a new report that shows tampering with the presidential election. take a live look outside. you can see a jackknifed semi. that's what it appears to be at county kay. this is exactly what we're

6:12 am
you're watching today's tmj4 with julia fello, and brian niznansky. >> brian: the time now is you're waking up to a winter wonderland this morning. this is a live look in waukesha. slippery and snow-covered roadways. we're just getting going with this system. we're going to see periods of snow through our entire day today, and probably taper off by around 8:00 p.m. this evening. the storm 4 max radar across southeastern wisconsin, you can see the snow for everybody. however, look at this break in the action here. we could eventually see this lull move through across our southern spots later on this morning, but don't be fooled,
6:13 am
and this afternoon. we're zooming up north, where we have some of these darker blues indicating the heavier snow over towards port washington and belgium this morning. stepping through your timeline, 7:00, snow flying. by 11:00, snow, 28 degrees. we could have that lull across our southern spots south of 94 during the morning hours. 2:00, 31 degrees. starting to warm up a bit. that powdery snow may become a little bit more packy by this afternoon. 31 degrees by update your snowfall map. when the snow will get out of here. all the snowy details coming up here in a few minutes. >> julia: the kiddos will want it to stick around, i'm sure. thanks, brian. president elect donald trump's transition team is pushing back reports that russia helped him win the election. the cia concluded that russia helped trump win by releasing hacked democratic campaign e-mails. trump's campaign responded by saying, "these are the same people that said saddam hussein
6:14 am
the time is 6:13 this sunday morning. a lot still alive at daybreak, including what other states in the midwest are dealing with, the brunt of the snow that we've been seeing since last night. let's take a live look outside. again, taking a look at that jackknifed semi. a lot more law enforcement on scene here. looks like the entire roadway on i-4194 is shut down as they try to take care ofhe

6:17 am
it's part of our 100% veggie diet ...and helps support their immune system. perdue. over 200 products. no antibiotics ever. >> brian: welcome back. the time now 6:17 on this snowy sunday morning. much of southeastern wisconsin, because we are waking up to nowhere from two to as much as six inches of snow across the area. here are some of the snow totals we've seen so far. lagrange in walworth county, 5.8 inches of snow. murton 4.8 inches of snow. some of these lighter amounts actually probably need some updating. they're a little bit old, so as people wake up, some of the observers wake up, we'll get some updates on these locations. again, but in general, most of
6:18 am
all right, the storm 4 max radar across southeastern wisconsin, snowing pretty good for most of us. i want you guys to notice, though. look at this back edge starting to clear into madison and jamesville, so we might see this lull move into some of our southern spots at least, at least south of 94, so kind of a break in the action later on this morning, but don't be fooled. that snow will return later on today. we'll pan over a little bit, and you can see that clearing extends all the way back into iowa. let's zoom in here across some of our northern spots, where we are start t these darker blues from belgium, port washington, over towards keywaskum. the precipitation rate, this is liquid. a dry snow that equates to over an inch per hour snow rate across parts of the area. let's go through the latest run of our computer model.
6:19 am
by 67:30, you can see that lull edge in. by 10:00, it quickly fills in, and it's going to snow pretty good through midday today. this is 11:30 now. let's follow the time, and it's still snowing good. we might actually see some of heaviest snow across the southeastern corner of the state this afternoon. could be the grand finale, i guess, late this afternoon before this back edge starts to finally clear through. 5:00, snow coming to an end, by 8:00, should be out of here for everybody. so how much additional snow computer models are showing three, four, five inches of additional snow through this afternoon and into this evening, bringing snow totals to around nine to 11 inches for our far southern spots, but i think most of us will be in the six to nine-inch range. our weather alert, a winter storm warning in effect for all of southeastern wisconsin until 8:00 p.m. this evening. let's go through the storm
6:20 am
light to moderate snow. another inch roughly during that timeframe. a little bit more, a little bit less in a few spots. 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., another light to moderate snow. another inch of snow during that timeframe. and then if we see that heavier burst this afternoon, an additional two to three inches of snow, and then the snow diminished 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. i think by 8:00, 9:00, everybody done with the snow. live look in west bend. snow-covered roadways. you can see the plow trying to get things clear here. current temperature in west bend it's cold enough for snow currently in milwaukee, a little bit warmer at 28 degrees. that temperature already on the rise this morning, and we'll eventually top out in the lower 30s. across the states, snow extends back towards lacrosse. it's snowing for the twin cities, and still snowing back towards north dakota. we have a ways to go with this system. 11:00, snowing for everybody. by 9:00, the snow is out of here. tomorrow on the back side of the
6:21 am
20s. you think it's chilly now, wait for this cold front to move through. by tuesday, a sock of some arctic air. it is going to be bitter cold tuesday, wednesday, and into thursday. your forecast for today, snow continues. an additional three to five inches, bringing our totals up to six to ten inches in the milwaukee metro area. for tonight, a couple flurries early. otherwise, a low temperature 22, mostly cloudy. here's your seven-day forecast. yes, if you're headed up to lambeau field, give some extra time today. make sure your headlights are on the freeway. keep your speeds down. 25 degrees for your temperature tomorrow. partly cloudy skies. and, again, a few snow showers on tuesday, and here comes the cold. 10 for the high on wednesday. 12 on thursday. the low temperatures below zero and windchills could be 15 to 25 below zero during that timeframe. and then possibly more snow on friday and saturday. remember a few weeks ago in november when it was in the 60s.
6:22 am
at some point. >> brian: it was incredible. that's long gone. >> julia: get ready for the big chill. thanks, brian. we're not the only ones getting hit hard with the snow. this is what people in iowa and illinois have been dealing with. that region is only expected to get three to six inches compared to our -- in some areas, ten inches. some areas could receive six to nine, though. several cities in the area are under snow emergencies. ll three feet of snow, though, fell on one northeastern ohio town. the town of kurtland received 32 inches of snow. it's believed they have the highest snow total in the country so far. it's expected to keep falling until early tomorrow. at least we don't have to complain about that. we need to follow breaking news. let's go live and look at the d.o.t. camera. you can see that jackknifed semi. just a little bit of traffic. it's not that much this early in the morning on a sunday, and
6:23 am
backups there, and i can only imagine how scary of a situation it was for that driver. as we learn more, we'll try to
6:24 am
6:25 am
6:26 am
>> brian: 6:25 now. we are looking live. it is slow-going. if you have to travel today, keep your speeds down, make sure your headlights are on through your travels, and just give yourself a little extra time. the storm 4 max radar continues to show snowing. pretty good across southeastern wisconsin, but notice this little back edge here of the snow starting to lift through madison and jamesville. we'll see if it eventually clears through southeastern wisconsi action, don't be fooled, there will be more snow that develops later on midday and this afternoon. now, westbound to port washington, snowing good. it's actually been snowing pretty good across our northern spots. the heaviest of snow over the past couple of hours. the total snowfall amounts, i think most of us are going to be in that six to nine-inch range. could see some isolated higher amounts across our southern tier locations. forecast for today, snow for everybody. and if you're headed up to
6:27 am
a snowy at least start to the game. might taper off to just some flurries by the end of the game. 28 degrees at kickoff, and by the fourth quarter, 24 degrees. here's daybreak sports. >> rod: good morning, everyone. last night, the bucks came up short in washington when they lost to the wizards on the road. we're going to pick this one up, fourth quarter. that triple put the 84-81. yanis led the bucks with 28 points. this jumper put them up 94-88, but the wizards would come back. john wall hits the buzzer. the wizards win it 110-105. how about the golden eagles hosting the wisconsin badgers. we go ahead and pick this one up. in the first half, the lay-in. badgers up, and marquette would
6:28 am
drills a triple. he had 22 points for marquette. the badgers start turning it up in that second half. koenig with the triple. badgers up 49-47, and the three ball was working for wisconsin. first it's zack showalter, and then it's nigel hayes. that three put wisconsin up 70-52. ethan happ has a dunk. and then the outlook pass to khalil iverson, he jams it. he had 16 points. badg the green bay packers hosting the seattle seahawks today at lambeau field, and the one player they'll want to contain on special teams and offense for seattle is the dynamic tyler locket. >> lockett brings a whole different dimension to this game, particularly in this weather, and he's the focus. we need to win that part of the game. obviously, that will affect the field position, which will be
6:29 am
think really our technical focus, they do a good job on blocks, so we can't let them grab us, we can't let them execute those blocks and end the return game. >> rod: lamar jackson became the youngest heisman trophy winner ever when he won yesterday in new york city. he's 19 years old. the packers hosting the seahawks today at lambeau field. have a great >> julia: coming up in our next half-hour, brian niznansky has another look at what we can expect with our snow and throughout the day. we have the jackknifed semi. this is at i-4194. two lanes shut down. no word on injuries as crews
6:30 am
6:31 am
right now from milwaukee, this is today's tmj4. >> julia: good sunday morning to you. i'm julia fello. a check of your forecast in a
6:32 am
crews have been working nonstop to keep the roads as clear as possible. they've been working through the night treating the roadways. the city has deployed 175 garbage and recycling trucks mounted with snow blades at this hour. eight fire departments face a fire during frigid temperatures. this morning, a couple is displaced, grieving the loss of their dog as well. there weren't any fire hydrants in the area, so firefighters had fight this blaze. let's take a live look outside at port washington. as the hours have gone by, brian and i have been watching. there's so much more snow that has been going on top of here. it's really hard to get through. very slick out there. >> brian: at least you can see some pavement there in port washington, but certainly some snow-covered spots and slippery spots across southeastern wisconsin. good morning, everybody. i'm sure many of you looking out the window this morning and seeing a winter wonderland.
6:33 am
a few inches of snow. winter storm warning in effect for all of southeastern wisconsin now, so that's a change from overnight last night. fond du lac and sheboygan counties added to that winter storm warning, because we're actually going to see the heavier excessive snow this morning lift its way farther north. we've been watching all morning on the radar, some of the heavier bands of snow across our northern spots, but what we're also watching is kind of a dry slot here. the back edge of the snow starting to clear through madison, jamesville now, and will work at least our southern spots. from 94 south, we could see the snow come to a complete end before returning around midday and this afternoon. but it is still snowing pretty good for most of the area, especially from belgium to port washington. notice those darker blues indicating that heavier snow. your forecast through the day today, by 7:00, light to moderate snow across the area. 11:00, 28 degrees, still
6:34 am
spots. i think snow returns for everybody, and probably at a pretty good clip this afternoon. 31 degrees by 2:00, and by 5:00, still snowing with a temperature of 31 degrees. we'll take a closer look at when the snow completely comes to an end, and we'll have your total snow forecasted amounts coming up here in a few minutes, julia. >> julia: thanks so much, brian. the snow has been falling steadily since 6:00 last night and crews have been treating the roads since the first flakes be pete zervakis live in milwaukee county with more. how's it looking out there right now? >> pete: if you take a look behind us, this is the intersection at 11th and wells. you can see there is some snow on the roads, still especially in the middle of the roads, but it's clear that the plows have been through here throughout the night. there's not a lot of accumulation. the roads are slick. we can tell you we started out at our station up on capital drive, and then drove south to get here downtown. the roads are slick, so be
6:35 am
but overall, everything looking pretty good so far down here. we want to show you a nice little visual, kick some of the snow around. it's a very light snow. not a lot of wet, heavy snow. it's very light and fluffy. probably bad news for kids making snowballs today. it will take a limttle effort t pack those through. these are the northbound lanes of i-43 just as we're approaching fond du lac avenue. the intersection off in the distance. you can see a similar situation to what we've got on the roads there's some snow on the roads, but overall, it's looking pretty good. pretty clear. not a lot of accumulation. so just be mindful that things are wet. leave some extra room between you and the car ahead of you. wisconsin emergency management with about 18,000 crashes occur every year on the days when we have snow and ice on the roads. that leads to about 5,000 injuries and 50 deaths, so again, just be careful, as all of you know already. give yourself some extra time to
6:36 am
zervakis. >> julia: pete thanks for showing us. i appreciate that. we're going to return to our coverage of this storm now. the racine county sheriff's office is on the phone with us. lieutenant klatt, can you hear me? >> i can hear you fine. >> julia: we hear that there's a jackknifed semi. we see a lot of crews there. do you know anything >> it's a continuing effort. we have had quite a few vehicles and also the jackknifed semi. but thewe're working as quickly we can to clear for traffic. >> julia: what else are you seeing out there? what are drivers doing -- when you go to some of the scenes, what are you hearing from your deputies when you arrive on
6:37 am
too fast? >> just people going too fast. they always have to remember that you need to increase your following distance from the vehicle in front of you. but for the most part, too fast. they need to slow down. >> julia: and i understand that you have more crews out tonight patrolling, and we appreciate all of your time, and also for joining us on "live at daybdayb daybreak". lieutenant, thank you so turn on your headlights if it's snowing or if there's any condition that limits visibility. bridges and elevated roads can be icy and slick even when other payment is in good condition. posted speed limits are for the best conditions, not days like today, when it's very dry out is usually when is the posted speed limit. boys and girls club of greater milwaukee, they're trying to bring smiles to thousands of children. volunteers gift wrapped presents

>> brian: the time is 6:41 now. we are looking live in downtown milwaukee. looks like the snow has lightened up a little bit in the city of milwaukee, but don't be fooled. we g go across the southeastern wisconsin storm 4 max radar. you can see the snow is flying for most of us, but also notice the back edge of the area of clearing here, a lull in the action. you can see that lull starting to move into lake geneva and whitewater. the snow will shut down temporarily before returning midday today. let's work our way farther up north here. you can see the higher snowfall
6:42 am
and port washington, snowing at a pretty good clip. let's go through the storm timeline. from now until 10:00 a.m., especially some of our southern spots can see a lull in the action, or just light snow for most of us. just another inch of snow during that timeframe possible. from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., a look for some snow starting to return another inch of snow, and by 2:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., we could actually end with maybe our heaviest burst of snow, about two to three more inches of snow this afternoon, and then the snow diminishing from 6:00 to 9:0m. i would say actually around 8:00 most of us seeing the snow come to an end. i updated our total snow forecast map, and we'll show you that coming up here in just a couple minutes, julia. >> julia: thanks so much, brian. two bombings in turkey outside of a stadium after a soccer match killed at least 29 people and injured more than 150 more people. 27 police officers and two civilians are among the dead. turkey's prime minister tells us that ten people have been

with his wife of 62 years called "kirk and anne: letters of love, laughter, and a lifetime in hollywood." and the final thing we're talking about, the weather. just a little thing called the weather. >> brian: i think a lot of people will be talking about a winter wonderland. if you're headed to lambeau field, give yourself some extra time. it's going to be a snowy game, at least to start at quarter, the snow starts to taper off to maybe just a few flurries. here's some of the snow amounts. you can seabrookfield, up to five inches of snow. wynn lake at five inches of snow. still snowing pretty good across southeastern wisconsin, but notice this back edge starting to edge into our southwestern spot, so i think we will see a lull in the snowfall over the next couple of hours before it picks up again midday today. as we head up to the northwest and over towards port
6:49 am
showing that heavier snowfall. as we go through our future forecast here, this is 8:00, and again, you can see some of this drier air trying to move in. now, follow the time here. let's step through the time of our snowfall. by 11:00, notice how that snow picks up again. we're starting to notice some of these darker blues by then, so midday and into this afternoon might actually be our heaviest of snow, so we're nowhere near done yet with this system. this is 1:00. notice the snow by 3:00, notice this back edge. this will be it. this is the back edge that will end things later on this evening. by 3:00, possibly moving through fond du lac. by 6:00, entering most of southeastern wisconsin. i think it's still snow here in milwaukee, racine, and kenosha, but by 8:00, the snow finally comes to an end over 24 hours later. this is just a prolonged period of light to moderate snow, which, again, is piling up
6:50 am
wisconsin. now, this is additional snowfall on our computer models, and i think in general, we're going to see about three, four, maybe five more inches of snow by this evening, so that will bring our totals into that six to nine-inch range. now, i actually dropped that heavier range. we had a nine, ten, 11-inch range across our southern spots, but actually took that out, because we are going to see that lull in the action move in here later on this morning, which will hamper the totals a bit, but i think six to nine is good enough. all right. weather winter storm warning in effect across all of southeastern wisconsin until 8:00 p.m. this evening. let's step through our storm timeline again. now, i think from 7:00 a.m. until 10:00 a.m., much of the area seeing that lull are just light snow. another inch of snow during that timeframe. 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., another inch of snow possible with snow starting to return midday and this afternoon, and then from 2:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., we might get a heavier burst of snow, about two to three inches of
6:51 am
diminish between 6:00 and 9:00 p.m. this evening. this is a live look in west bend, and this is a good sign. you can see the road here. at least some pavement here, but certainly still slushy and slippery. current temperature 27 in west bend. temperatures still on the rise. we might tap out in the lower 30s today. already 29 degrees the current temperature in milwaukee. that light powdery snow possibly transitioning to more of a the wider view extends back to minneapolis. the area of low pressure still way to the west here. that's why we still have a ways to go with this system. as we head into the afternoon hours, this again, 11:30 in the afternoon, we'll start to notice the back edge of the snow move through. by this evening at 9:30, we come to an end. on the back side of things, high pressure and dry weather for your monday. a good day to shovel out on monday. by tuesday, here comes a brutal cold front. this is going to bring some
6:52 am
your forecast for today, a high temperature of 32 degrees. the snow continues an additional three to five inches with six to ten inches total across southeastern wisconsin. for tonight, a low temperature of 22. some flurries early, otherwise mostly cloudy skies, and here's your seven-day forecast. 32 for the high today, down to 25 on monday. monday's probably the best day this week. that's as good as it's going to get. partly cow di. now, a cold front moves through tuesday morning, bringing a chance of snow showers, and a high of only 10 on wednesday. 12 on thursday. lows could be dipping below zero, and windchills could be anywhere from 15 to 25 below zero, and guess what, maybe more snow on the way friday and into saturday next week. i see a trend here. this would be three weekends in a row of snow. >> julia: ouch. this is only the beginning. >> brian: don't blame me. >> julia: don't blame the weather man. let's go back out to pete zervakis live in milwaukee
6:53 am
what the conditions are like in our city. pete, how's it looking right now? >> pete: it's 6:00 a.m. we showed you an interstate sign under a light to show you how quickly the snow was falling. if you take a look at the light in the distance, you'll see there's a visual. it's definitely snowed down a little bit. snow still coming down, but not nearly as hard as it was when we first arrived down here about an hour ago right underneath the light. this is wells street. take a look at then cans on the road. you'll see there is some snow buildu l middle. roads are a little slick and a little slushy, but overall, it's pretty obvious, the plows have been through here at night. there's not a lot of accumulation on the main roads. now, by contrast, this is a road that runs right in front of the courthouse. i guess kind of a frontage road. you'll see on there, there's a limit more snow, although someone did clearly do some plowing, because i'm going to wander off the sidewalk where

6:58 am
our northern spots with the total snow of about six to nine inches. i think things completely come to an end by around 8:00 this evening. until then, be prepared for some snow. >> julia: and keep it here. each hour, you're going to be giving updates. >> brian: the top of the hour. >> julia: brian will be keeping you safe.
