AND THEN LATER ON THINGS REALLY GET GOING. HERE WE GO. WE KNOW WE WEREN’T GOING TO GET THROUGH FEBRUARY WITHOUT ONE OR THIS ENTIRE WINTER. SURE. SO SO FAR WE HAVEN’T HAD A SNOWSTORM. THAT’S PRODUCED FOUR INCHES OF SNOW IN BOSTON THIS WINTER OR LAST WINTER. I THINK THIS ONE IS GOING TO DO IT. FORECASTING 4 TO 8IN OF SNOW IN THE CITY. BUT JUST WEST, A WIDESPREAD AREA OF 8 TO 12IN OF SNOW. NOW RIGHT ALONG THE IMMEDIATE COAST. THAT WIND IS GOING TO BE COMING IN OFF THE WATER. THE SNOW IS GOING TO BE HEAVIER AND WETTER, AND IT’S GOING TO BE MIXED WITH RAIN. INITIALLY, THERE WILL BE A PERIOD OF RAIN DOWN TOWARD THE CAPE AND ALSO THE ISLANDS THAT WILL TRANSITION OVER TO SNOW. SO THE AMOUNTS GOING TO BE HELD DOWN AROUND HERE. BUT THIS IS A QUICK HITTING STORM SYSTEM AND IT IS GOING TO BE COMING IN IN A BURST WHERE THE SNOWFALL RATES OF 1 TO 2IN PER HOUR MAY BE BRIEFLY HIGHER THAN THAT IN SPOTS ARE GOING TO FALL BETWEEN 8 A.M. AND 2 P.M., SO THAT IS THE TIME PERIOD TOMORROW THAT YOU DO NOT WANT TO BE ON THE ROADS. POOR VISIBILITY AND HAZARDOUS TRAVEL ARE EXPECTED. IN ADDITION TO THAT IMPACT, WE THINK COASTAL FLOODING MAY BE ONE OF THE MORE SIGNIFICANT IMPACTS IN KELLY ANN IS GOING TO BE ALONG. TO TALK MORE ABOUT THAT IN JUST ONE SECOND. SO YOU CAN SEE THE TORNADO WATCH BOXES DOWN NEAR THE GULF COAST. THIS IS THE STORM. THERE’S A LOT OF ENERGY WITH IT. AND AS IT HEADS UP IN OUR DIRECTION, THERE ISN’T A LOT OF COLD AIR FOR IT TO BUMP INTO. INITIALLY. THERE’S A LITTLE BIT, BUT THIS STORM IS GOING TO INTENSIFY SO QUICKLY THAT IT’S GOING TO GENERATE ITS OWN COLD AIR. AND IT’S ALSO GOING TO REALLY CRANK UP THE WINDS AND THE SURGE AS IT GOES BY. BUT THERE WILL BE A SHARP CUT OFF TO THE SNOW TO THE NORTH AS IT PULLS IN THE COLDER AIR. ONCE IT GOES BY. SO THIS IS GOING TO BE A QUICK HIT. AND IT ALL GETS STARTED HERE OVERNIGHT. SO TODAY IS QUIET. WE’RE STARTING OUT IN THE 20S AND 30S. CLEAR TO PARTLY CLOUDY SKIES OUT THE DOOR. TEMPERATURES TODAY WILL COME UP BETWEEN ABOUT 45 AND 50 DEGREES. GOOD AMOUNT OF SUNSHINE THE FIRST HALF OF THE DAY. AND THEN YOU SEE SOME CLOUDS STARTING TO COME IN LATE DAY INTO THE EVENING. BUT IT’S DRY THROUGH MIDNIGHT WEE HOURS OF THE MORNING. THINGS ARE A LITTLE SLOW TO GET GOING, BUT LOOK HOW QUICKLY EVERYTHING FILLS IN BY SUNRISE TOMORROW, 6 A.M. THE SNOW, THE RAIN, THEY ARE STARTING AND IT IS GOING TO BE RAIN. INITIALLY DOWN TOWARD THE SOUTH COAST AND THE CAPE, BUT IT TRANSITIONS OVER TO SNOW FAIRLY QUICKLY. NOW YOU CAN SEE BY 8 A.M. SNOWING PRETTY GOOD ACROSS MUCH OF THE AREA, BUT THERE IS THAT SHARP CUT OFF TO THE NORTH UP ACROSS SOUTHERN NEW HAMPSHIRE. BUT BETWEEN 8:00 IN THE MORNING AND NOONTIME, YOU CAN. SEE THESE DARKER BLUES SETTING UP. THESE ARE YOUR MORE INTENSE SNOWFALL RATES OF 1 TO 2IN PER HOUR. THE SNOW IS GOING TO BE COMING DOWN HARD. TOUGH TO KEEP UP WITH. SO ABOUT TWO IN THE AFTERNOON. AND THEN FROM WEST TO EAST IT ALL STARTS TO KICK OUT. AND THEN THINGS ARE LOOKING MUCH BETTER FOR THE EVENING COMMUTE. BUT UNFORTUNATELY WE’RE GOING TO BRING IN THAT HEAVIER SNOW AND THE STRONGER WINDS RIGHT AROUND THAT TIME OF HIGH TIDE WINDS COULD GUST TO 60MPH ON CAPE COD, BUT IT IS THE TIMING OF THE WIND AND THE TIDE THAT WE HAVE A LITTLE BIT OF CONCERN WITH THAT KELLY ANN LET’S TALK A LITTLE BIT MORE ABOUT THAT COASTAL FLOOD THREAT. YOU KNOW, WE’VE BEEN TRACKING THIS FOR DAYS, AND THE CONCERN FOR THAT TIDE IS GROWING AS WE’RE SEEING A SHIFT IN THE TIMELINE HERE, PUSHING SLOWER AND SLOWER. THAT MEANS THAT ONSHORE WIND IS LIKELY GOING TO LINE UP WITH OUR HIGH TIDE IN THE MORNING. AS CINDY MENTIONED, RIGHT AFTER 8:00, WE START TO SEE THE SNOW PICKING UP AND THE WIND ALSO STARTS TO PICK UP. BUT IT’S REALLY NEAR MIDDAY AND AS WE APPROACH THAT HIGH TIDE, THAT WE START TO SEE WIND GUSTS OVER 40 TO EVEN 50MPH. IT’S A NORTHEAST WIND. AND NOTICE THE STRONGEST OVER SOUTHEASTERN MASSACHUSETTS RIGHT ON INTO THE EVENING BEFORE DYING DOWN. BUT IT’S REALLY SOUTHEASTERN MASSACHUSETTS THAT HAS THE GREATEST POTENTIAL TO SEE MODERATE TO SIGNIFICANT COASTAL FLOODING. BAY SIDE OF THE CAPE LIKELY GOING TO BE A HOT SPOT HERE FOR SIGNIFICANT SURGE WHERE WE COULD SEE UP TO FOUR FOOT SURGE WITH A HIGH TIDE. IT’S RIGHT AROUND 145 FOR BOSTON AND FOR BOSTON ITSELF. WE’RE LOOKING AT A FOUR FOOT SURGE, BUT WE’RE LOOKING AT SIMILAR NUMBERS UP THROUGH REVERE AND OUT TOWARDS SCITUATE. THAT IS ALSO A VERY VULNERABLE SPOT FOR NOT JUST THE SURGE, BUT ALSO THE BEACH EROSION FROM ALL OF THESE ROUGH WAVES. YOU KNOW, BOTTOM LINE HERE, DOUG AND ANTOINETTE IS THAT THIS IS GOING TO BE A MULTI IMPACT STORM WITH IMPACTS THA
