and as you can see, here's the storm responsible for all of this. by the way, the same storm that triggered tornadoes in the midwest and some heavy batches of snow in some areas west of chicago, all of that weakening as it's been moving to the east. there's one more batch of heavier showers in new york state that may survive the trip in here, so we'll keep the chance of rain in the card through midnight, shortly after that, drizzle in between any bands of steady rain and then it will tend to dry out during the overnight, especially in central and southern new hampshire. as for your friday, breezy and dryer, then more clouds and showers hit the north country. a slight chance of a sprinkle in the afternoon south. then mixed and snow showers develop tomorrow night as colder air builds in for a good part of this weekend, especially the first half saturday into saturday night. showing one band of showers moving to the east with a break in parts of vermont and western new hampshire as that continues to move through, drizzle will
fill in the gaps, so we will not clear out by any stretch. then this band of showers has to move through during the mid to late evening, probably clearing by midnight or 1:00 a.m. temperature weiss lining up in the 40's. notice with future temperatures they don't go too far during the next several hours, only falling back into the upper 30's to lower 40's far north and lower to mid 40's across a good part hampshire. tomorrow best shot of showers will be in the north country, and there's cold enough air on the back side to produce some snow in northern new hampshire during tomorrow night, especially late evening and into early on saturday where yes there had could even be a light accumulation of snow. upper 40's tomorrow up north, elsewhere in the 50's, then it does turn windy at times, those winds continue to pick up as we go through saturday and it will be even colder. overnight tonight, lower to mid 40's north and central. tomorrow we've got the sunshine in some areas, it will not be all that bad in terms of the winds compared to saturday.
the temperatures the mildest we will see through sunday. so we get boo the upper 40's north to mid 50's south. by saturday it's windy, and squeezed in between you see those flakes flying, most of them gr to hit the north country into a good part of the upper valley. and then it tend to dry out later saturday. sunday not all that bad, bright breezy after a cold start in the 20's, we're up near 50. and a nice stretch monday through probably a good part of thursday. the next rain chance probably not until later thursday afternoon into early on friday. so the first 10 days of this month very, very dry, kind of turn the table a little bit into the soggy scenario. not great for outdoor activities, but putting a dent in the mini drought. josh: we'll take it. jean: thanks, mike. a strange call by a referee in a college football game. josh: a ref scolded the band ask cheerleaders for making too much noise at the toledo versus central michigan game.
