in the teens. in most of the state and some areas, even a little colder than that. so, it's certainly a mild start compared to average, although as i mentioned, it's certainly chilly out there for sure. let's take a look at what else is going on out there. the snow showers that were in the mountains have calmed down just a little bit. as you can see earlier, they were coming down pretty good. a dusting to an inch fell in locations now they're calming and they're not done just yet. cloudy to partly sunny skies on the way for today. just a little bit on the breezy side as well. it will be a few degrees above average, clouds and sun mixture and just a little bit of a breeze. if you're going to be in the mountains, of course, you can see there that we'll be seeing those temperatures heading up into the mid to upper 30's in central and southern parts of the state. and a little bit cooler in northern new hampshire as those

6:40 am
tomorrow into monday, very cold enough. snow showers are waning for a while and coming back at times, and tonight, most of the state, cloo clear to partly cloudy. that's the cold front that moves through the day. a few snow showers in the mountains and otherwise, partly sunny skies for tomorrow and into monday, mostly sunny, but a big time temperature difference is on the way. we've had a very mild december, in fact, it finished out as the mildest december on record in history. but things are changing here. and at least for this upcoming week. instead of the mildest weather, we are now back to what you expect in january with highs in the teens and low 20's, in fact, northern new hampshire, the highs on monday will be in the upper single digits. >> brrr. >> winter sports enthusiasts are rejoicing. >> thanks, josh, christmas time
