this is wcvb newscenter 5 at 5:00. ed: right off the top, we are tracking snow for the morning commute. heather: winter storm warnings are in effect. harvey: all right, i have to show you what is important here. it has been a winter storm warning and it is in effect and it includes the greater metropolitan area. the storm we are talking about is going to be closer and in a include snowfall. that is what we' re dealing with. it is 53 in boston but the air is chillier and that is the further north you get. the snow you see going down the region. this storm will take track that is very favorable to bring
this will sort out as rain at around 10:00 or 11:00 tonight in boston, but look, we are changing over to snow in the northwest of boston and then in the deeper part of the morning commute, the deeper the snow will get and that line will move southeast. they will turn over and get several hours of meaningful snow as well. but because boston and the greater boston metropolitan area will be in the heavier snow longer, that is where the heavier amounts will be. so my best estimate on amounts is a wide swath through the greater boston metropolitan area and you can see anywhere from four to eight inches of snow and it is going to be wet, pasty snow and it will cling to shrubs, trees, and power lies. here is mike. mike: let'
we are going to show you what specifically will happen. as you head into the morning commute, probably in boston we will get between two or four inches of snow and between the noon and 5:00 p.m.. / . -- 5:00 p.m. period, we will have more snow. i think what harvey is saying , the four inches to eight inches, is a very good ballpark. jc? phil: that' s -- jc: that' s right, we will have the eye-opener covering with live team coverage tomorrow at 4:30 a.m. tomorrow on channel 5 and on the wcvb app. phil: another busy day for presidential hopefuls in new hampshire and democrats prepare for tonight' s debate. we will begin with sera congi. she is live in portsmouth.

it is 53 in boston. the air is drying out right now. eventually it will start cooling off. the wind direction is out of the west-northwest and that is where it is slowly cooling off. these are temperatures cool enough yet to support snow, and if it starts, it is going to rain. we are in the mid-50' s in the cape and that will take the longest to change the rain to snow down there. chicago is below freezing, toronto is 34, ottawa is 32, syracuse is 36. that cold air will eventually have the snow work in as the moisture from the south starts to build northwards. here' s the storm and it looks like it is going to take a very favorable track with enough cold air coming in as the storm it moves up to flip the rain over to snow. that is going to happen tomorrow morning during that commute from the west to the southeast. the deeper into the community
