5:08 am
night, and early this morning. chris and alex. >> since we went on the air at 3:00 this morning it looks like the conditions have become worse for you now that it is after 5:00a m. >> reporter: you know, yeah seeing that the snow is really starting to stick it seems like the consistency of the snowfall has change, earlier this morning it was more of that snow, wintry mix, rain, and now it seems a little bit more like snow and snow flakes are getting a little bit larger and little bit larger. i'll be interested to see what further develops. we are just keeping an eye on the storm for now we do see some traffic moving our way. i will get out of the street. we are live along missouri avenue here, chris and alex. >> other part of new jersey,. >> for that part of the story let go to fox 29's steve keeley live in mercer county.
5:09 am
hi steve. >> we're in trenton we decided to get out of the car in the say lalor plaza where they showed us opened dunkin' donuts. they are living by their word opened 24 hours. but look at route 129, again very busy. we are saying private vehicles. it is non-stop busy. these are river line track that is they are crediting and river line shut down with the rest of new jersey transit because we thought they would be a lot worse conditions out here at this time of the day even if it may get worse later on but that is why you see, no new jersey transit, buses. but here's a guy walking up the street, going every which way. we had private plows in the parking lot but here, we have what looks like a city plow. they will were going to wait until 4 inches. you can see plow train along the river line here we will see more private vehicles and boy plow trucks were bored when we saw them all meeting at trenton then are minor
5:10 am
league ballpark about a hour ago waiting for something to plow. maybe they figure instead of sitting there in neutral ape park lets getting and make sure these vehicles can move. we see about a half dozen of them. you can hear plows scraping on the ground because there is no snow to plow. they leave this much on the street. at this intersection here at 29 you see a lot of vehicle traffic and right now up on the flags above dunkin' donuts you can see win is starting to blow and gust and that is why you will see a lot of snow on rooftops half inch or inch that fell will blow on to have of you. a a lot of the snow will be blowing off rooftops every where because it is getting very windy a and those flags in the too far off the ground on the first floor rooftop. is there more powder on the doughnuts then there is out on the street but it the is starting to pick up and conditions starting to worsen. if you get out like all these people are, we are seeing plenty of taxi cabs lick this
5:11 am
guy here. a a lot of people are up and out in trenton despite the work force staying put and the plow guys finally getting to do something after sitting there and waiting and in the staging a area waiting for order. here you go, it looks like there is traffic. i would have been surprised to see this much traffic around trenton knowing there was a travel ban in effect but we are near a state prison and there are a lot of essential workers here in trenton as well. perhaps that is where we are seeing private vehicles because i do see among people topping for coffee some of the great prison guard that have a tough job to do. that prison coffee in where near the tasty coffee that they have at dunkin' donuts. >> clearly not you showed that flag there up above. sue just eye bald that. she thinks it is 30 or 40 miles an hour gust but she's checking to find out how strong the wind are for you in trenton. >> reporter: sue and i experienced blizzard conditions working on the great lakes. you can have a blizzard
5:12 am
without even having any snow falling. all you need to key to blizzard are wind and that is where you get wind chill factor in your face and dangerous conditions because you cannot see with wind blowing in your faces specially if you are driving. that is where we get the word white out and all that stuff from. right now more in south jersey we have had a buzzer warning but in blizzard warning to my knowledge at this point. >> sue just check and she said 25 to 30 miles an hour wind is what we are dealing with their. check back in with you steve. coming up we are keeping an eye on this storm as it moves throughout the area and northeast, with boston really getting the the heavier part of it. we will take another lot at the forecast when we

5:17 am
precipitation throughout the rest of the morning. not as much as we anticipated but still pretty slippery out there and it could be tricky travel. so until about ten or 11c we expect this to continue. storm is out by this afternoon. we can anticipate the next one. big thing a after this is how cold it will get, we will see temperatures really dropping tonight. still the blizzard warning in new york. we have winter storm warning that extend to the the west of there in ocean county and in philadelphia a it is winter weather advisory for couple more inches of snow. we could have two to four when all is said and done and increasing amounts west ward but just didn't pan out with the moisture. we will have more tea tailed plane nation with caitlin roth later on in this hour. cold temperatures out there right now. everybody is in the 20's and wind are making it feel colder. we have 16 miles an hour. there is a 25 miles april hour win gust in trenton where steve keeley is.
