hayley: yes. as we go through the morning, that's the threat. any skiers getting ready to head north, you may run in to some of the heavier snow squalls as we go through the morning here. snow squalls are when you get the winds that pick up very quickly, you get the brief almost heavy summer thunderstorm downpour. except it was snow, of course. you can get quick accumulation on the roadways. there's a live look in dublin. it looks like a couple of inches have accumulated there. in portsmouth, backing up to a fresh dusting of snow. there's more to come. that's actually where the snow has been heaviest along the seacoast and in south eastern new hampshire. across the rest of the state we still have light to moderate snow coming down. i'll zoom you down and show you the lakes region where we have moderate snow at the moment. see the darker shade of the purple or white color from laconia down in to the middleton area

and east of concord. same thing is true along 202 there from concord toward the portsmouth area. in south eastern new hampshire this is where we've had some of the heavier rounds of snow moving through from kensington toward the hampton. some light to moderate snowfall still coming because of the concern of the heavier snow coming down in the south eastern corner of new hampshire, there's a winter weather advisory that's been posted. that goes until 1:00 this afternoon across the rest of the state. it will be lighter snow. that's why there isn't an advisory. one to three inches is a good bet across the entire state. higher amounts possible when you get in to the higher elevations of the white mountains. so far for concord this year we've had 9.4 inches of snowfall. well below the average for this time so far in the year which would usually be more like 24.5 inches. last year at this time

it's been pretty quiet to start out the winter. looks like things are picking up. today, of course, and then maybe even this weekend too. in the meantime, cold temperatures in the 20's. they will continue to slide. not much of the temperature bump through the afternoon. the winds are going to be howling as we go through the day. not the case though at the moment. a measly three miles per hour. they are going to get piped up through the morning and in to the afternoon with wind gusts near 30 to 40 miles per hour. that continues in to the day tomorrow. scattered snow showers and snow squalls through the morning. then in the afternoon they will be confined to the higher elevations overnight tonight with clearing skies. the temperatures are going to get cold. in to the single digits across much of the state. so for today we'll have most of the snow shower action happening in the morning. temperature about 25 degrees in the afternoon. then continuing to go down. then we'll have snow showers for at least the mountains tomorrow. otherwise it is a nice,

stay there are two democratic visions for regulating wall street. one says it's okay to take millions from big banks and then tell them what to do. my plan -- break up the big banks, close the tax loopholes, and make them pay their fair share. then we can expand health care to all, and provide universal college education. will they like me? no. will they begin to play by the rules if i'm president? you better believe it. i'm bernie sanders
