stratham. mike: nice and mild during the day yesterday, and some spots did hold onto lower 60's for highs today while other spots were cooler. right now in the lakes region as can you see from the time lapse from sunup to about the present time, clouds have been winning over the sunshine, but temperatures have been running right at the average for this time of year. big changes coming on in over the next couple of days, in terms of those temperatures, as a warm front clearly marked by these clouds here moves on through tonight allowing allowing the winds to kickback out of the southwesterly direction. certainly a warm air direction for new hampshire. and that means temperatures will be higher than the average for thursday. following that the wind bank around to the northwest, driving in much cooler air and that classic fall chill for friday. so that's basically how the next couple of days will play out. along that warm front that's moving in, signaling the warmer thursday, a couple of widely scattered showers, a lot of these drying up and will have no impact on our weather tonight.
but can't rule out an isolated shower the next several hours. the high in concord, 62, just a little above the average. tomorrow will be well above the norm and friday several degrees below. the average it altogether, that's where we get the average temperatures in toucher 50's for this time of year. right now it's upper 40's to near 50 along the canadian border. elsewhere in the 50's. lower 50's at the coast, that seabreeze has kept temperatures a lot lower than yesterday, when you made a run into the 60's. overnight tonight not all that chilly. the average low in the mid 30's, so well above that by at least seven, it a, nine, 10 degrees in many parts of new hampshire. again behind the warm front that moves in for tonight, temperatures climb nicely as high as the low 70's in spots tomorrow, and then all the chilly air, it's not too far away, just over the border here, a good part of october and early november, it will dive back at new hampshire come later thursday night, setting up a much cooler friday and chilly start to the weekend. especially early saturday morning.
widely scattered showers, same story tomorrow, we could see some breaks of sun but also a couple of widely scattered showers even into the early evening. once that moves out, then it turns much dryer for friday and on saturday. here's a look at the sky cast over manchester for tonight, skies becoming mostly cloudy, while there could be a shower, a good part of the night will be rain-free, a lot clouds could make for a fiery sunrise, but clouds could produce a widely scattered shower. then it brightens up midday and afternoon and temperatures jump up near 70 degrees. and a few spots even above that. so we go into a warm thursday, with low 60's north, low 70's south. and notice how much cooler it gets by friday, classic fall chill is in. 40's up north and through the lakes region, lower 50's from manchester points south. 40's for tonight. could be a brief shower, but most of the night rain-free. nice and warm tomorrow, despite a chance of a shower, good part of the day dry. much cooler for friday, quite
breezy as well. saturday starts off very chilly, the afternoon not all that bad with light winds. a little milder, maybe a shower on sunday before it dries out and turns seasonably cooler early next week. so a little of everything. tom: still looks pretty good. >> remember when we were at the super bowl we went to arizona state, the pen men hockey team is headed there now. if you work hard, and you do your part, you should be able to
they want to go the super wealthy they don't stand up for they don't support paid family leave. they don't even really support 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 i approve this message. we need to disrupt the old order in washington, dc.
we can do a lot better by applying conservative principles we should lower rates and simplify the code to allow people to freely decide how they want to spend their money. what we need is leadership to fix a few big things... so that this country takes off and soars where people can dream the biggest possible dreams... and pursue them with a vengeance.
