5:47 am
if you think shopping before the snow storm, if you position it's not a big deal you'll want to talk to somebody who has been to a grocery store over the past 24 hours. we're at a 24 hour grocery store and we've 3:30 in the morning and not showing any signs of slowing down. even the county executives local municipalities are telling people to stockpile items that can last for at least two to three days because it's not often that the tri-state area is in the bull's-eye of this type of blizzard. but that's the very case this time around. they're talking 2, 3 feet especially in the city and long eye islands the hamptons. and another fear is that the stores may have to shut down once the blizzard kicks up later today and if to the evening hours and overnight. the other fear, that these workers will be able to get here later on today. so we're seeing a lot of places that are out of bread. this store in particular, the bread aisle is virtually empty

5:49 am
conditions out there with this wintry mix and the fact that just the road surface is wet. you can always have fender bendsers whenever we have any kind of a wet roadway out there. so we'll continue to keep an eye on the temperatures. and the road crews out there. we have seen them all morning long. sometimes in the standby mode other cases they have been cruising along the highway putting salt down. and so far, things are still looking pretty good. eun, back to you. >> megan thank you you. and this just in, rap rappahannock county schools are closed. and look at this you can see it's very active this morning. that large section of green, tom is keeping a close eye on the storm as it gets closer and closer to us. his forecast is just a few minutes away with your weather and traffic on the 1s. we are waiting for new information morning on the condition of a teenage boy after a triple shooting in prince george's county. police say the shooting happened
