4:30 am
this is "good day early call." >> good morning, everyone. it is going to be a semislushy ride to work. kind of depends where you live. mainly long island. especially eastern part. spring snow moved through our area. not too bad. mike has the full forecast. >> police make a arrest today. machete attack in queens. three men injured in restaurant slashings. we'll have more coming up. >> president obama getting ready to visit with cuban president raul castro on the first full day of his historic trip to cuba. >> all righty. >> i love all the images from cuba. so beautiful. >> yeah. >> i can't wait to go down there. >> you want to go? >> oh, yeah. as soon as i possibly can. i love to get down there. >> i will wait until everything
4:31 am
>> really? aim an adventurous person. >> i'm ben simmoneau. >> i'm juliet huddy. >> you shouldn't be driving. >> i another i shouldn't be driving because nobody can see it. >> city not at all. really just wet streets. it is snow but just not stick on the streets is the deal. i see some snowplows out there. not having much to do. because hitting the street and meltings on contact. places out to the east you may be seeing some accumulation colder. that area of low pressure is little closer to you and going to be producing snow for a little while longer. mainly this morning's commute, we have a coastal storm pulling by to the south, as expect last friday, look like we would be in the neighborhood of one to three inches of snow. that's about right. looks like already come to a close for the extreme western sections, northwestern sections of new jersey but we're not quite in the clear just yet. this will go on a little while
4:32 am
see what is going on with the temperatures? 32 degrees or above? that is part of the reason the snow is not sticking. you're at 32 in islip and 32 in montauk. out in the east, es special i let pine barons, that is likely where you see the snow sticking on. that would be impressive to what we have in the city which again should be a about a coating to an inch for most of us. winds are coming from the northeast and turning more north and turn more northwest as time goes on. most in and around six to 12 miles per hour. a decent little storm. again a little too far to the south to bring us a really good punch. if it sat off the coast and wound up and pull ad lot more cold air it would be a more significant winter storm. this is the first full day of spring and we're still talking about snow. what happens is this area of low pressure continues to head offshore but it will leave some snow behind. as far as how much you get?
4:33 am
shaded areas. coating about an inch in the gray shaded areas that bisects five boroughs. suffolk county and eastern sections of connecticut you could see three plus inches of snow in localized places this is going on for the morning commute. things dry out in the afternoon. we'll get back to sunshine. it is not a huge deal for storms to come later this week. looks like it will be producing rainfall for us, both friday as well as sunday. things definitely quiet down after this one. all right. let's bring in ines rosanna and get you going out the door. so we know we have wet roadways but white roadways only a few spots. >> we have street leaning rules suspended citywide. perth amboy is closed at new brunswick avenue. there is activity going on there. westchester county between rockland and tappan zee bridge you're okay. let's go to our cameras look at the commute on the lie.
