tolls and then moving well up to concord where we have slight slowdowns through the exits in the city of concord itself. taking a look at 101 west you've got some congestion there between 114 and wallace road. everett turnpike is busy in both directions right now, and we see a lot of company on 101 a in nashua as well. 101 is a good ride to the seacoast and we're very busy on the spaulding turnpike northbound this evening. i'm peggy james for 95.7, wzid. tom: james foley's mother is writing a book about her son. isis militants murdered the journalist in 2014. a publisher says diane foley's book will have memories of her son and include her family's experience while dealing with with his kidnapping and captivity, particularly their experience with government officials. earlier this week it was announce haded that a documentary about foley will air at this year's sundance film festival. jean: five people are reported

5:18 pm
slides, that's growing along the coast, million dollar homes are getting pounded by high surf with waves up to 25 feet high, helping form massive sinkholes. jean: a picture from the international space station shows the air pollution creeping across parts of asia. astronauts scott kelly snapped this photo. beijing recently issued its second ever red alert over air quality. government officials say they're working on plans to reduce pollution. this time of year also brings air quality concerns to new england, and wmur's hayley lapoint is here to explain what you should keep in mind. hayley: yes, earlier today there were some air quality alerts that had been issued mainly for cheshire county out by keene because of the valleys there trapping the air particles that can look like this when we have heating devices going. so the air quality alert for cheshire county has been
5:19 pm
definitely diminished. but what happens is we get these small particles of pollutants in the air, usually due to heating devices like wood burning stoves. and with the cold temperatures, calm wind and valley locations where the air can get trapped, the air lingers and becomes stagnant. for those affected by this type of air where there's pollutants in it, mainly the elderly, young children or those with breathing problems like asthma or bronchitis, it can cause bigger issues. but that threat seems to have gone away as we've gone through the day and will in earnest as we go through the next couple days with our next storm system approaching, that will flush out the air. for more on the forecast we go over to mike haddad. mike: yes, definitely some changes coming in. a couple systems we're going to track, one big one on sunday and a bit of unsettled before we get there. out at the coast today we had bright skies and temperatures,
5:20 pm
chill, back into the 40's in some areas. right now a few high clouds continue to build in from the west. there could be patchy low cloud and fog that develop towards morning. only concern with that is temperatures are above freezing now. but will dip well below of course in the coming hours, already below freezing in concord points north and west. so any patchy fog or low cloudiness that creeps in during the predawn hours may give it about 10% chance result in a light glazing on any untreated surface, so keep that in mind early tomorrow morning if it's foggy where you are. outside of that mainly clear a good part of this night, temperatures starting in the 20's and 30's from north to south. by morning you add another cold one, 5 up north, 8 in the upper valleys, teens for many and low 20's in manchester, nashua and the coast. not a lot of arctic air anywhere in the northeast or for that matter anywhere in the country.
5:21 pm
or above average all across the lower 48, or at least most of the lower 48. nice and mild in the deep south, please anally cool here in the northern tier, and eventually we do get a taste of more of that arctic cold next week. but up until that point, jet stream flow is going to drive in warmer air and that means by the time the next system arrives, with the heaviest moisture on sunday, looks like mainly a rain event across new hampshire. so clear skies tonight, towards tomorrow morning wind will continue to build in on shore, and that means some low cloudiness, patchy fog may develop during the predawn hours, especially the morning commute and last into the afternoon. again a slight chance that some of that fog again could develop where temperatures are down below freezing, so there could be a light glazing that develops, not counting on a widespread issue. during the course of friday, the clouds thicken up lakes region south. sunshine a good part of the day farther to the north and then clouds take over everywhere tomorrow night. that's when it gets tricky on
5:22 pm
notice not a lot of precipitation, but a little bit of very fine light snow or some light freezing drizzle cannot be ruled out anywhere in central and southern new hampshire, with light snow showers to the north. so untreated surfaces later tomorrow night into saturday morning may be a little slick. moving beyond this system into sunday, that's when the heavier precipitation arrives, it will be mainly rain, although early in the event there could be sleet or freezing rain, but mainly rain as i see it now for this storm on sunday. the winds will pick up as well and temperatures, the next couple of days in the 30's jump back into the 40's for sunday. beyond that here comes the winter chill again for monday with snow showers lingering in the mountains, sunshine elsewhere, it will be gusty out of the northwest and that continues to drive in chilly air as we go through tuesday, wednesday and thursday. but it's january. tom: a lot of people think they're getting a way with something.
5:23 pm
week if it gets colder, you may not think so. jean: well, a bus driver accused of deserting his passenger says he was just following orders. tom: up next, what the man was doing while passengers waited for hours. jean: and it's not just good genes that keep tom and giselle in the pot light, their personal
