5:16 pm
concord 15 degrees is also the coldest it's gotten this young season yet. november, december, couldn't do it. how long has it's been since we've been below zero in any of these cities? march 7 was the last time that concord was below zero. and only one below zero, but that was from last winter. portsmouth back to february. berlin, which you would think would be shorter ago, but not a whole lot, that's been about 43 to 44 weeks in many spots, so it's been a long time since we've been below zero, probably our real good chances that those places up north do. maybe elsewhere as well. mike: yes, josh, been great on the heating bill over the last several weeks around here. but we have the arctic cold for the first time this season. take a look at market square today where we did have the sun flirting with clouds. and even some passing flurries here or there. but most of the accumulating snow today just to our south,

5:18 pm
there at least through wednesday morning. also at this time we're tracking milder air back to our west, so a very narrow batch of cold air, england. notice the jet stream by later tuesday night and wednesday, that lifts out of here, so it's back to seasonably cool for wednesday right through the balance of this week. there will be another surge of arctic cold billion through the northern plains this weekend. and with cool air, but milder stuff in the eastern seaboard, that will likely set up a stormy scenario along the east coast. looks like a fairly weak system, the next one holds off until saturday and maybe another one sunday or sunday night. in the short term, clouds are moving out, that means fair skies tonight, it's all about temperatures with the wind chill as well. if we don get down below zero tonight, it will certainly feel the part of zero or below due to gusty winds. but plenty of sunshine tomorrow, more sun wednesday, and bright skies continue into thursday and probably friday as well.
5:19 pm
around where we were today, upper teens far north, lower to mid 20's lakes region points south. and the winds will be a bit active tonight and tomorrow, but not as strong as they were earlier today. for tonight, clear skies developing, coldest so far of the season, it will be breezy at times. so teens below zero far north, single digits below in the upper valley, right around zero concord and a little above that manchester, nashua and towards the coastk to or above average as early as wednesday afternoon. a little bit above the norm for the rest of this week and then we get to saturday, looks like a little light snow or snow showers and then maybe a mixed system later sundayunda o night. but in the short term, all about the cold. josh: thanks, appreciate i we're now five weeks from the new hampshire primary. and to help keepou informed, we're taking an indepth look at some of the hot button issues up next, the candidates' views when it comes to climate change.
