jean: this has been one of the warmest novembers on record, josh judge joins us. josh: it's been a very warm november and up until hoo recent lit we were in first place and then second place. as of this morning, the numbers are like this. here's the five warmest novembers ever in history recorded history any way in concord, and 2006, and averaged together 43.3 degrees. this month through this morning through midnight, 42.9 puts it in second place and then 1931, 2011 and 1948 are three, four and five. how much snow did they receive or did we receive in the winter following these temperatures? well below average. the average about 64.5 and well below. however, today was much colder, as was last night. the high temperature in concord unofficially is 34. the low was 19. when you factor that in, we're crunching numbers here because it's not official yet, it's looking like we're going to have a change, this
5:19 pm
will be knocked from number two down to number five when you tack for in today's numbers and that would bring it down to an average of 42.4 degrees. a big difference. so from second place to fifth place just because of one cold day today, mike. mike: as long as the pats stay in first place, josh, that's the factor here. amazing to see what can happen. that happened also in september when we talked about one of the driest months on record and in one day it flipped around. take a look at portsmouth today, fair skies and a lot of sunshine. temperatures struggled despite the bright conditions to get up to the average. a lot of clouds did build in during the afternoon, capping the temperature rise, keeping us stuck in those 30's, as josh just showed you. right now on satellite, fair skies in new york state, also mostly clear conditions in northern new hampshire, but a lot of low cloud did build in during this afternoon, they will melt away later tonight for
5:20 pm
mostly clear and cold conditions later on tonight. but notice the changes developing to our south. one system down over the tennessee valley, another one back in the midwest and all of that will eventually con verge on new hampshire, bringing a period of rain our way tomorrow afternoon and lasting right through portions of wednesday night. notice again how cold it is up north, upper 20's and not a whole lot warmer in central and southern new hampshire. between 30 and 36 degrees. overnight tonight we'll bottom out near 10 to 15 up north and on average upper teens and lower 20's elsewhere. so mighty chilly. back in the rockies, northern plains, great lakes, and also here in new hampshire. but notice it's a little milder to our south. then we'll get back into the 40's, at least near 40 plus during the day tomorrow and mid 40's on wednesday. so that means that any precipitation that moves in during that time frame will be in the form of rain.
5:21 pm
later wednesday night, some cold air will likely change it back over to snow in the mountains and of course they could use that this time of year. so tonight fair skies develop, then the sun quickly gives way continue creasing clouds for your tuesday with a couple scattered showers in the afternoon. not an all day washout and any precipitation should be mostly light. then tomorrow afternoon right through wednesday afternoon a period of rain, we could see up to an inch in some spots, once that clears notice what trails, yes, some cold air. so across the north country, mainly the great north woods and white mountains, we could see a little bit of snow piling up, maybe one to three inch accumulation with a possibility of a mixed or snow shower scattered about central and southern new hampshire. highs tomorrow, slightly above where they were today. but again that's going to set the stage for a wet as opposed to white system that moves on in beginning tomorrow afternoon. so becoming partly cloudy south,
5:22 pm
an unsettled stretch from tomorrow afternoon to thursday. thursday snow in the mountains corks be mixed or snow shower in southern new hampshire, a few flurries up north on friday. outside of that dry. and right now first weekend in december is looking as warm as we'll be over the next seven days. josh: thanks, mike. if you're trying to stay on your best behavior when it comes to holiday treats, we have a list to keep handy, up next which foods are considered to be the absolute worst by dieticians. jean: that there is the sound of a train that narrowly missed a man who got disoriented in the dark at 5:30, the good samaritans who saved him just
5:23 pm
jean: kit be hard to avoid overeating during the holidays with all the treats that seem to appear. josh: but consider a new list from fitness experts on which i stems are the worst for you. number one on the black list, fruit cake, which in my opinion makes it there on flavor alone. that's followed by soda layered cheese dips and cheesecake. keep in mind that naturally fatty foods will burn off faster than foods that are processed with artificial ingredients.
5:24 pm
calories you are drinking. jean: google has released a list of the recipes most often searched, and in new hampshire seems we like our corned beef, that's the recipe that gets the most searches here. in massachusetts and vermont people want to know how to prepare chicken. and in maine the most googled recipe is for boiled ham. just when you thought it was going to be lobsters. so did you know a classic holiday show didn't sit too well with the studio before it aired? >> no, no, no! listen all of you! you've got to take direction. jean: up next, one of the biggest concerns over a charlie brown christmas was the voice of one of the actors. jean: and a close call for the driver of this car, how he ended up with a reflect author post through the windshield. and now to our u local hot shot, this is what happens if you take teen boys black friday shopping, they might just take a break or

5:44 pm
the back side of it we could see a little bit of wintery precipitation. right now low clouds locked in from the southern white mountains south and southeast. but eventually they'll give way to mostly clear skies. with fair skies and light winds, temperatures will tumble quickly. so a dry and chilly one tonight, then an unsettled stretch will follow beginning tomorrow afternoon and lasting right through wednesday night even into thursday in parts of new hampshire, especially up north. mostly in the form of rain. light scattered showers tomorrow afternoon, then a steadier rain on and off tuesday night through wednesday night with some spots possibly getting an inch or. so then it turns colder and that means a changeover to some snow mainly up north as we go into thursday. cold enough for snow right now, down into the upper 20's and lower 30's in many spots, a little milder downtown manchester and right along the coast. but right at an even 30 in marl pro, from 30 to 34 points north
5:45 pm
where it's in tupper 20's. colder up north, pittsburg already upper teens. single digits by overnight. elsewhere. even though it's cold right now, by the time precipitation gets in here, right be too warm to support anything but rain. there's a very slight chance in parts of southwestern new england where the rain arrives early tomorrow morning there could be a touch of freezing rain. i'm not anticipating that here in new hampshire. although in the north country there could be a couple pockets tomorrow afternoon that are right near 32. but again no major issue with freezing as i see it right now. clouds on the increase tomorrow, scattered light showers during the afternoon. then steadier rain will take over at times, tomorrow night into wednesday night before that changeover to snow in northern new hampshire by early on thursday.
5:46 pm
