the 60's, maybe a few spots nudging near 70, then a bit of a saturday. by the second half of the weekend we warm back up before early next week. so that's basically how temperatures will play out. fairly typical for the mid to late part of october. what about the cloud cover, thickest clouds right now in the north country, but tomorrow most of them will be central and southern new hampshire, and a few sprinkles cannot be ruled out overnight boo the day on wednesday, but the best chance of showers the rest of this week will actually come in very light wednesday night into thursday, as the next front moves on in. winds will be sowft south, driving temperatures into the 60's to near 70, despite a lot of clouds. notice the back side of that, in new york state it begins to dry out on thursday night, and that means friday in the first half of the weekend will be dry. notice again after 60's today, temperatures dip a little bit tomorrow, especially in eastern parts of new hampshire, due to that on shore wind, low to mid 50's there.

5:26 pm
when you figure there's only an average of two tests per year, it's really hard for them to catch up. double digit openings at the manchester police department and they are doing everything they can to get qualified applicants in the door. >> years ago we with probably put an ad in the sunday paper and we'd attract 8 had hundred to 1,000 candidates. now we're looking at about 200 candidates, 250 or so. reporter: the he can't point the one reason why saying it's just a trend across the state and country. in nashua the police force is down nine officers, the chief pointing to a string of retirements in lackluster turnout at tests. concord only has three vacancies but the recruitment pool is down, and it's concerning since they have over a dozen officers who could leave at any time. >> this month along we've gone to probably or will have gone to about 10 different events that includes job fairs, college job
5:27 pm
doing seminars, presentations to college kids. reporter: he says there is a stringent vetting process. >> it takes two to three months from the day you take to test to get hired here. there's a long process that includes background investigations, polygraphs, interviews, medical exams, psychological testing. reporter: they lose some during this, and there's also automatic disqualifications, drugs and list. they will not lower their standards. and many departments are vying for the very same candidates, making the search more difficult. he says it can be a dangerous job, but very rewarding. >> once they come in here and realize what type of job this is, it's a very fulfilling job, and i think that they'd be happy in this career. reporter: if you're interested in becoming a manchester police officer, the next test is on november 21st, however you must apply by november 12th, aall of this information is on our website, heather hamel, wmur news 9.

5:29 pm
if you don't come for your screening mammogram, we can't see what's there and diagnose cancer early at the soonest possible moment. and so i'm excited that the message from the american cancer society recommends screening mammogram at an earlier age than the government tack force did -- >> yes. so that's better. they give their strongest recommendation starting at age 45, they support screening mammography every year starting at 45. at age 40 they do give a qualified recommendation of annual mammography, but they qualify their answer saying, you know, there's going to be an increase chance of a false alarm. and false alarms, when you get called back for something that we see on the mammograms, we know that causes anxiety.
5:30 pm
their answer under age 45. reporter: was it both getting that false alarm say at 40 or 41 when there's a better chance of detecting cancer earlier? >> thank you for asking that question. yes. we strongly believe and we hope that all those women between age 40 and 45 will still keep coming for their annual mammogram. we're very concerned that this kind of recommendation may confuse or bewilder younger women, and put off that first mammogram when we might see cancer at its earliest moment and have the greatest impact on her life. reporter: speaking of early detection, we have a question from one of our viewers who wrot in and said i was diagnosed with stage three breast cancer at 34, i have no family history, i tested negative for the gene. how does this new age going to benefit my daughter?
5:31 pm
tv. so you should obviously consult with your doctor. but it's possible that her daughter is at increased risk, and for patients at increased risk we recommend screening mammography at eve answer an earlier age. so with a mother or sister or daughter, with premenopausal breast cancer, we'd start annual mammography at an even earlier age, possibly age 35. reporter: quickly, will this impact whether insurance companies pay for mammograms? >> so far there hasn't been a negative impact. and actually now recent guidelines in 2012 made it so that you don't even have to pay a copay or a deductible to have your screening mammography. so screening and preventive medicine is encouraged. reporter: doctor, thank you so much. bottom line, the guideline

how long it could continue. if you work hard, and you do your part, you should be able to get ahead and stay ahead. but the republicans... v they want to go back to letting v the super wealthy call the shots. they don't stand up for equal pay for women. they don't support paid family leave. they don't even really support refinancing student debt. we've got to get this economy working for the vast majority of americans, not just for those at the top. that's what i intend to do as president. i'm hillary clinton and
