5:00 pm
we have a winter storm warning in those locations and you notice boston there are no watches or warning or advisories even. that's the same in worcester as well as nashua. meaning very light amounts of snowfall on the way so the thought process what not changed all that much. not a sudden sift in course because of that blizzard warning in martha's vineyard. t the fact that it's right on the edge and it's not going to take much to go from a lot of snow to no snow. that's still the principal with the storm. looks like a 12 hour storm. about midday tomorrow into midnight tomorrow night light snow around the metro through the evet, heavier snow along the south coast and out on to the cape and we have wind on the way for tomorrow night and sunday morning. that might lead to some minor coastal flooding at the 11:00 a.m. high tide on sunday. so the storm continues to un untense my right now and it does really want to come north up into new england but high pressure is not budging and it still is expected to force most of the storm underneath new england. so we're going to be right on

>> anchor: our coverage
5:21 pm
pictures of this potentially crippling storm. the in addition's capitol in the cross hairs and first flakes have definitely gun to fall with a little bit of snow there already on the ground. millions are people are in the path of this storm. >> anchor: as we in boston know cope wag storm like this is never easy by any reasons so we want to head out live to chris welch with a luck at what it's like this dvc today. chris? >> anchor: kim, you know as well as anyone on the east coast that this winter has been a little bit more mild. that is, until today. we see things start to change it was just a few hours ago when snow started falling here in dc. we could see two feet here possibly even two and a half feet you can still see cars driving on the road. the mayor had asked everyone to be off the roads as of 3:00 p.m. obviously a few hours ago that has not happened yet. she just held a press conference urging everyone to heed that
5:22 pm
are going to get much, much worse. we're sustained winds of about 30 to 35 miles per hour tonight overnight into tomorrow. then in maryland that's where they could see gusts of up to 65 miles per hour. now when all is said and done 85 million could be in the path of this storm. kim? adam? >> reporter: okay, chris, yeah up in new england it's a close call. boston worcester no watches, warnings or advisories then you move down through the south shore. the purpose ehere winter weather advise are we upwards of three or four inches of snow portions of the south shore, south coast, the cape, winter storm warnings 6 inches of snow and right here is martha's vineyard, blizzard warning in effect beginning midday tomorrow through midnight tomorrow night and again the blizzard warning does not tie to the amount of snow on martha's vineyard. what the concern is the wind and the snow reducing visibility for three hours or more under a quarter mile and again it would
5:23 pm
hour on martha's vineyard. now it's not in effect to nantucket because i think there be a heavier, wetter snow on nantucket and so because of that you won't have as much blowing of the snow and reducing vice the on nantucket. here is the storm system right here. still moving through the virginias as well as carolina then it will move off the east coast tomorrow night and toll morning and at that time it continues to move east northeast there has been no significant change in the track of the storm system. i realize when you probably started getting text messages about a blizzard warning massachusetts and martha's vineyard that was a little bit alarming but it's not changing for metro boston and here your storm time line again tomorrow morning quiet and as ework through the morning hours we'll have patches of light snow arrive midday as well as flurries then steadier snow along the south coast and you notice that blue shading of the steady snow does not move that far north through entire event. it doesn't make it into the city of boston and in fact i think fitchburg and nashua the reason i'm kind of covering you guys up here is it season a storm on the way.
5:24 pm
about it. most of the activity is going to be focus across southeast mass and then it all winds down just after midnight tomorrow night and certainly by sunday morning it's gone. we'll still have wind out there sunday morning. the accumulating snow long gone after midnight tomorrow night. so you can see here we talked about this for much of the week how there would be a drastic cut off you are going from a coating to an inch perhaps two in worcester down to the south coast six, seven, 8 ins of snow right at the water's edge. around the metro one to three inches of snow north and west of town merrimac valley coating to an inch and heading farther south route 44 plymouth and then new bedford, fall river, westport, mattapoisett, wareham 6, 8, 9, tens of snow and it will lead to poor travel tomorrow evening south coast as well as the cape and the islands i think though for metro boston if you have travel plans late tomorrow afternoon and tomorrow evening i think you can keep them just allow for extra time if you have reservations at the restaurant. i wouldn't cancel the reservations around metro boston
5:25 pm
out on to the cape that might be something you went to row think just because of poor travel for a time tomorrow night on cape cod as well as the south coast. and any event sunday morning clouds, sun in the afternoon, take the kids sledding looks great, temperatures mid 30's. >> anchor: thank you, jr. still ahead on 7, police on the prowl trying to track down the person who opened fire on that cat on the cape. >> anchor: a store owner comes out swigging when a robber tries
