tom: take a look at this, we've received a number of pictures like this one in our inbox here. viewers spotting big columns of sunlight. jennifer: hayley lapoint joins us now to explain what that is and what's causing it. hayley: we've gotten a couple of these over the past couple of days, people saying what is that? looks like a light
saber coming out of the sun pointing directly upward, it's actually something very cool that's happening. i'll share a few photos. these two photos were from milford along 101. one of our viewers sent this in as they were commuting in the mill fielder area. you can see the beams of light
believe it or not this can also
happen at night. you can see the pictures there. and these are actually called light or ice pillars that are occurring and it happens when the air is very cold. we had that earlier this week. what's actually happening is in the air right above where these lights are, there are little ice crystals, and those ice crystals are in the shape of a flat plate. and as the light is traveling through those little ice crystals, they're reflected upward. so with those lights from say a parking garage there or as the sun was making, you get these pillars spiking upward because of the shape of the ice crystals. thankfully it has warmed up a bit. so less of a likelihood of us seeing those light pillars, mike haddad has more on the forecast. mike: yes, a beautiful shot there.
at beautiful pictures up north as well. this is mount washington, up over 6,000 feet up, mighty chilly compared to the valleys, in a deep snow pack now. evidence of the winter season. but in the valleys back into the 40's today in many spots, including concord, where we topped off over 40 for the second straight day. the normal high only 31. the low this morning down to 7. temperatures lining up in the 20s. even though it is colder atop mount washington right now with the sundown, the valleys are cooling off quickly. so fairly uniform read is, in some spots it warmer higher up, typically called an inversion. when any storm moves in over the next few days, not talking about a lot of big snow, by sunday more rain than anything else.
single din it in tupper valley. about 10 to 15 or so in concord up through the lakes region and a little above that points south and southeast. quite a few changes though coming in down the road, seasonable temperatures, pleasant conditions right now, warmer air will try to build in from the south and along with with that quite a surge of rain weekend. and here's the reason why. jet stream that's locking in cooler air back in the rockies will stay put, and out ahead of it temperatures will run at or above the norm right through the entire weekend. so again it's cool and not cold. that means sunday's storm will be rain as opposed to snow. but there is a lot of arctic cold that will be on the map later in the weekend, surging in our direction, so a got part of next week will be mainly dry, now. some of the cold could be felt with temperatures struggling to get out of the teens north and low to mid 20's south. quite a big storm to the south
clouds that build in by tomorrow in southern new hampshire. then we have to wait until saturday night and sunday to hear from that next with him with quite a bit of rain. mostly clear skies tonight, seasonably chilly, single numbers and teens for many, 20's at the coast. tomorrow morning we start off with a little sun, then the will cloud will build in from the water, could be drizzle late day hampshire. tricky. a lot of clouds, a light on shore breeze and enough moisture so a couple of scattered very light snow showers and flurries or even a little bit of freezing drizzle. so if you're traveling later tomorrow night through saturday morning, could be a little slick on some untreated surfaces, notice as we advance in time on sunday, here comes the rain, could start as a wintery mix of sleet or freezing rain north and west of concord. but outside of that it a wet weather maker on sunday. tonight clear, cold, a few clouds by morning along the coast. fair skies north tomorrow, so the brightest skies in the north
saturday a light mix and in the morning scattered mixed showers. heavy rain sunday, warm and windy. then the winter chill fills back in starting monday through most of next week. tom: c's and b's in the news tonight. >> yes, and the celtics play in chicago against the bulls. we have our home town hero as well. on average, it takes three hundred americans working for a solid year,
ceo. it's called the wage gap. and the republicans will make it worse by lowering taxes for those at the top and letting corporations write their own rules. hillary clinton will work to close the wage gap. equal pay for women to raise incomes for families, a higher minimum wage, lower taxes for the middle class. she gets the job done for us. i'm hillary clinton and i approve this message. announcer: 3 republican governors. but which governor won national praise for tough leadership handling nine hurricanes? which governor made his state number one in job creation? which governor led the fight to stop obamacare expansion in his state? and which governor laid out a tough plan to destroy isis months before the paris attacks? jeb bush. right to rise usa is responsible
jamie: after a loss at home last night to the pistons, celtics are back on the court tonight facing a tougher task. c's play the bulls in chick at 8:00 p.m. on national tv. the bruins have put adam mcquade on injured reserve with an upper body injury, he was hurt during this game tuesday night against the capitals. pasternak has been called up from providence to take his spot. bruins have a road trip coming up starting in new jersey. coach parker and her
central river. good start for the bobcats. 2-0 oyster river. central comes back, nice move and she scores on the back hand. then it will be a goal for megan
that came after one period was tied 2-2. this week's home town hero a member of the u.s.a. junior national team in curling, here is elizabeth janiak in her own words. >> hi, i'm elizabeth, 14 years old in the
8th grade, my chosen sport is curling. the thing i like about curling the most is strategy. there are like 100 different ways you can approach each shot. you can do tons of different things to every stone in the house, and every decision that the skip makes affects the outcome of the game. i think that's really cool, i just fell in love with it. i thought it's so cool how they can balance themselves on the ice like that and lower their body that much, it's a really interesting concept, none like any other sport. the hardest part is definitely the way the ice changes and how it different at every club and on every sheet. later this month my team,
going to the u.s. women's junior championships in wisconsin, it's really fun to see some of the best junior curlers in the united states. i would love to go to the olympics some day, not even as much for myself but as a chance to see
all the people who are mazing at the sport you love. jamie: good luck to elizabeth. a lot of go pro video in that. saturday afternoon, chiefs and texans, so settle in saturday at 4:20 with us right here on channel 9. tom: thank you. right now on wmur.com, dixville notch is famous for being the home of the first primary votes in the granite state. our slide show will tell you the history behind that special designation. jennifer: plus you have another chance to win a record powerball jackpot.
you got people working incredibly long hours. median family income today -- $4,000 less than it was in 1999. the
bottom line of this economy is that it is rigged. what this campaign is about an economy that works for all of us rather than a handful if you work 40 hours a week in america, you should not live in poverty. i'm bernie sanders,
