drizzle and a few sprinkles in southern new hampshire. by 8:00 or 9:00 tonight, we're pretty much all done and dried out and a little brief dry period in-between systems here before this next system moves on in. this one is very severe right now, a severe weather outbreak. look at all of these colors. these are all wind warnings, the yellow is thunderstorm warnings or even some tornado warnings in iowa right now. there have been four touchdowns of tornadoes so far today in iowa, one of them at the des moines international airport causing some damage to the national guard building there, i believe, but this system as it comes toward us, it continues to rotate and spin, but it loses a lot of its luster, by the time it moves in here tomorrow afternoon, it's just showers and some downpours perhaps, but no severe weather expected from it. drier weather tonight, but mostly cloudy skies for tomorrow morning when you wake up. it will be cloudy and maybe a glimmer or two of sun in the
morning hours tomorrow, not all that likely. by tomorrow midday and afternoon, here comes the next batch of rain from that weather system. it pulls through with some showers, some heavier downpours at times and then scattered showers right through the evening. by the time we get to friday morning, it's drying up, at least in southern and southeastern new hampshire. the farther north and west you are, the better chance of a friday afternoon shower you could see and as it goes-through time, friday night, some scattered showers through the mountains, colder air wrapping around. yes, there could be some snow showers in the mountains friday night into saturday morning. the rest of us, saturday is windy but partly sunny and sunday is mostly sunny. a decent weekend on the way but cooler. here are your forecast temperatures, 30's to low 40's in a few spots for tonight with mostly cloudy skies, kind of damp out there with drizzlele for the next couple of hours. tomorrow we start off cloudy and then afternoon showers arriving. it does get better for friday, though. those temperatures will make it well into the 50's in southern
new hampshire, about 50 to the north. your seven-day forecast showing right into and through the weekend, saturday we start off with snow showers in the mountains. it turns partly cloudy, windy, sunday, a nicer day, still cool, next week, milder conditions and lots of sunshine, go back up again. jennifer: that's ok with us. tom: becoming a kentucky wildcat? jamie: this is huge. we'll talk about that, plus

organization for a long time. they got some great history with a lot of players, one of the oldest franchises. jamie: if you want to win a state championship, you need to practice and need to be tough which is why many of the 12 remaining high school playoff teams were outside in the rain today on the wet fields gearing up for the semifinals in their divisions. that includes the jaguars, the coach's bunch will host the eagles on saturday afternoon at 1:30. >> certainly we got to be physical. that's hour m.o. for this offense and certainly for the defense. we come out guns appraising and if we're physical, then i think we'll be in pretty good shape. >> the coaches are getting us prepared looking at the type of offenses they run and the defenses they run, just preparing like we do every other week. we know our opponent and what we need to do to compete on saturday. jamie: the two teams have not played this week. we have reached week 11 of our friday night football report.
celtics have won two games in a row, going for three at home at 7:30. they host the pacers. they won in milwaukee last night, isaiah thomas 20 points. the hockey team is gearing up to play on saturday night after a couple of solid weekends on the ice, they ran into a wall last weekend, back-to-back losses at michigan state leaves u.n.h. trying to recover. >> we got to find ways to play better defensively. we give them zone time and before you know it, it's resulting in the puck in the back of our net. so got to do a better job of keeping shots off the net and zone. >> they gave up 12 goals over the weekend, but i think we just keep working this week, work together as a team, focus on our systems and play together and that should be a big difference coming up. jamie: tons of talent putting it together early in the year. tom: very good. tune in for "new hampshire
