mothers ate three servings of fish per week. ed: the question i asked you earlier, worry more about the cold or the snowstorm this weekend? harvey: a week from now and look back, you may need to worry about the weekend storm more than the cold. what we are living through now and have to face in the morning and that's the cold. i will be talking about both. 20 degrees in boston. steady wind of 21 miles per hour. the actual temperature is 13 in worcester. gusts. that's what is creating the wind chill. and we have a wind advisory because of the gusting winds. 6 below in worcester. below zero in most of our area tomorrow morning. you want to bundle up. we have had wind gusts that reached 47 miles per hour. 46 in proftsdz. these will be the temperatures -- in providence. these will be the temperatures.
11:18 pm
with us all day long tomorrow. worcester won't even get back for 20 degrees. low to mid-20's in boston. now you can see all the cold air that is banked up from chicago to minneapolis all the way up to canada and we are sharing in that and we have the wind to boot. and when you take the cold air and pass it overthe unfrozen great lakes, picks up moisture from lake and tar yeoh and lake erie. and a few have made their way into the berkshires. this was the snow that fell overnight last night and first thing this morning. two to four inches and even six inches in the south shore and north shore. for boston, the actual snowfall is 4.3 inches for the winter.
11:19 pm
only 5.5, but ended up with that amazing number. the average is 18. a lot is going to depend on the weekend storm as to whether we wind up getting close to that average. what about this possibility? the real question is, are we just going to get fringed by a powerful ocean storm or will it come close enough for a stronger hit? the timetable is centered around saturday, saturday night. snow and wind impact to a certain extent is likely. here. number one, the storm does come close enough for a classic track that will give us strong winds and heavy snow. that's the closer path, potential for heavy snow and strong winds. however, if this slides more to the east, we'll still be involved, but we would be more on the northern edge. in that case, we would get less wind and less snow. it's very hard for me to perceive that we could miss this
11:20 pm
get involved will have a lot to do with the overall impact. it's very early on. here's how i see it, the chances of getting heavy snow and high winds are high. and significant ocean storm on top of that and coastal flooding would be high and beach erosion will be high. we will be talking about this a lot more. windy and bitter and wind chills staying below zero in worcester. slightly less cold on wednesday. friday is the day before. saturday would be the storm. sunday would be winding down. you are thinking about what it will be like in denver. 0 degrees, dropping into the 0's. a touch of light snow or flurries. our focus is going to be here. the weather on saturday is what we are centering on.
