pretty far away it looks like a hurricane on satellite. very powerful and very potent northeasterly winds. we caught the western fringe. the heaviest snows are in eastern mass. it is pretty much along and inside 128 and extending to 425 including the north shore, south shore and southern new hampshire and pockets around scr hatum. chatum. this pretty much stays with us in varying intensity. then it begins to lift northward. there still could be snow showers on the north shore and the south shore to start the day tomorrow. we think 5 to 9 in boston and 8 to 12 around cape anne. lesser amounts to the north. it is a light drying and fluffy snow. hyannis and nantucket and let's talk more about the wind and the tidal changes. >> i want to show you what the
6:01 pm
to the cape and the islands. 38 mile an hour wind gusts. it is still a breezy evening going on. you go to the south shore and they are gusting 20 to 30 miles an hour and the same thing along the north shore. the billing difference now is the wind has gone in a more northerly direction as opposed to a northeasterly direction. in boston what will happen with the wind is you can see what will happen. overnight, slowly diminishing. that's good news when we talk about what is going on near the shoreline. let's show you scenes from earlier. this is along revere and revere beach parkway. you can see the water splashing up. in lynn they had a similar situation where all of the water is bashing against the sea wall and a lot of spray as well. fortunately we didn't get any major reports of damage. what about the tides? this morning it was 11-2 and tonight it is a 10-3. we have a little surge and remember i was telling you about the wind?
6:02 pm
thing. minor flooding is possible. the areas we will be watching are sandwich, nantucket. it is a down graded version of what we had going on. it is this area we are talking about. it is because of the wind and the tide later tonight. >> the area mike just showed you, our team of reporters have spread up and down the coast. >> we get started with jack harper and he is in marshfield and flooding has been a major problem there. >> it is back on 13th street and the snow has picked up since we talked to you last. we have one of the bands coming through right in my face and coming across the ocean. across the coast the test came earlier today. that was with the high tide just before noon, and it was one of those high tides that started to crash over the sea wall about 10:00.
6:03 pm
it was pounding over and bringing rocks and debris as they usually do. they had the normal flooding, but then that dissipated and they were able to clear the streets of snow and gravel. people felt afterwards, the locals, that they pretty much lucked out. >> it was a lot higher than usual. if it went over that sea wall a few hours before even high tide. >> it is pretty good. last year i think was worse because of all of the damage that was caused. reporter: and this is where they really lucked out. that is that this snow did not stick to the wires or the day. we didn't have all of the downed wires and power outages. things held together pretty well. heather:we just lost him. this is nantucket and they took a hard hit around 11:30 during the high tide.

6:05 pm
they are getting their power back over the weekend. that too seems to be okay. the houses all have power. the officials are keeping a close eye on the wind. we did speak with some of the families watching the water closely. own though they damaged the flooding it was still scary. >> the waves were crashing over the house and the water was run thriewg here and down the -- through here and down the streets. >> they were huge. they were going and went up and on to the deck. reporter: here is the issue now if you are driving in this area. these roads are now getting snow-covered at this hour. they were pretty good at coming through, the plows earlier today. but this is what the high tide washed up, pieces of wood, rock, debris. we saw lobster traps. if you are driving in this area, we will continue to monitor the situation and bring you any updates as we have them. wcvb newscenter 5.

6:08 pm
storm. all eyes were on the high tide before 11:00 a.m. there had been concerns that high tide and high winds could bring flooding and power lines. they were prepared for the worse, but thankfully that did not happen. >> we got through the high tide period. there was some minor flooding. power outages are limited at the moment and so far, so good. reporter: and again power outages have remained limited all day. most people road out the storm at home, and we saw a few who decided to have fun with it. faking -- taking the heavy, wet snow and making a snowman. police and fire are not concerned about that high tide since the worst of the storm will have passed. wcvb newscenter 5. heather:take the latest stormteam forecast and closings with you wherever you go.
