5:18 pm
showers moving through the great north woods, parts of the white mountains. a few more in southern vermont will likely eclipse central and southern new hampshire in the next couple hours, then it's back to dry. there are a couple of scattered showers in the great lakes, indicating how much cooler the air mass is and that will move in mostly up north later tomorrow night. as for the here and now, though, temperatures with the southwesterly wind in the 60's and lower 70's. the dew points are way up there for this time of year, almost unheard of to have them running in the 60's. so it does feel a bit on the muggy side from southeast. and the dew points will remain high for the next couple hours as those scattered showers move through. but notice how much dryer it is back to our west. those dew points dip back into the 40's and eventually the 30's over the great lakes and farther north and west even into the 20's. along with the driver air comes the cooldown, initially tomorrow it's just a bit of a drop in temperature, especially in northern areas, we'll see highs
5:19 pm
may hit near 60 in parts of southern new hampshire. so yes, much cooler than today, but still well above the average considering the normal high is around 51 or 52 for tomorrow. then the real chill builds in later saturday night into sunday, and you'll see it here on the jet stream flow. warmest today, that moves off to the east, so we cool down tomorrow. coolest in the next several days will be sunday night into early monday. but then notice once we get into early next week the real warmth stays to our south, and the real chill stays to our north and west, and that will put temperatures about five, six, seven, eight degrees above norm on average a good part of next week. so again the front has to move through for tonight and it's back to dryer air for a good part of the weekend with a l. sun tomorrow in southern new hampshire, a few more clouds up north, we'll see the mildest temperatures of course in southern zones. so on future cast, notice the showers move through and then tomorrow right back into sunshine. it will be on the breezy side right through the course of the weekend.
5:20 pm
tomorrow that win is out of the west northwest and on sunday it shifts around to the northwest with a lot of sun after some flurries up north saturday night, indicating how much cooler it will be. but again it's not all that bad tonight, lower 40's north, lower 50's south. that's right around the average high for this time of year. so even though we drop the temperature quite a bit over the weekend, it's still above average by seven or eight degrees on saturday, right back to average finally on sunday. but wouldn't you know it, temperatures jump, not as warm as we've seen, but above average again starting on monday. jean: thanks, mike. josh: up next, restaurants and kids can be a controversial mix sometimes, but are house rules going too far? >> just take responsibility for your kids. jean: and at 5:30, you've probably heard of tiny houses, if you're curious but not ready to commit, there's a new way to
