5:17 pm
take a look at the time lapse, yes it was a snowy scene out there through a good part of the morning. notice as we advance through the late morning and afternoon, there goes some of the clouds, beginning to break up just a little bit, and it has dried out. but those winds really cranking up out of the northwest, driving in some mighty chilly air for this time of year. no record setting temperatures to come this week. but it will certainly feel as cold if not colder than it has been at any point so far this season. notice that northwesterly win wringing out the available moisture with a few flakes up north, on and off right through tomorrow. we could see an additional couple of of inches if not more through the presidential range, it will be even more than that. but the higher summits generally an inch or two, maybe a dusting to an inch or so in the valleys. again that's for tonight. right through the day tomorrow. elsewhere in the state mainly dry, snow showers through the
5:18 pm
of them producing quite a bit in a short period of time, on the order of several inches per couple of hours. notice the trajectory here, moving south of new hampshire. so we are spared, and again typically those lake effect bands dry up before they reach the granite state. temperatures, the big story, down to 8 below atop mount washington, teens, very low 20's elsewhere, but this is only part of the story due to the gusty winds that are driving the wind chill down, on average, into the single digits. and a good part of tonight and tomorrow we will see wind chills running at or below zero during many hours and that includes not only tonight but into tomorrow morning. take a look at the busy winds, gusting up to close to 30 miles per hour. but they get even stronger from here. notice with our future win gusts through the day tomorrow they crank up between 30 and 40 miles per hour. gusting over hurricane force atop mount washington, at times, and then during the day on wednesday still quite breezy, but later in the afternoon the
5:19 pm
little bit. beyond that time frame, a little breezy later thursday, but not as gusty as the next couple of days. a lot of winter cold on the map settling in, so we're in a typical winter pattern for january, and even though it fairly quiet on the radar scopes, that may turn around this upcoming weekend. for tomorrow lots of sunshine in southern new hampshire, mixing with fair weather clouds, snow showers across the mountains. and more of the same tomorrow evening. by wednesday sunshine statewide, and looks like a fairly quiet pattern thursday and friday. but the next storm chance will be a nor'easter, hugging the coast during saturday, saturday night and early on sunday. where does that storm track is a big question at this point. snow is likely, the amounts way too early to think about that yet. but we've got the cold to worry about over the next couple days and the winds cranking up to near 40 miles per hour, of course everyone will jump to the flakes that are falling on
5:20 pm
a few days to fine tune exactly where that will go, but it will be a nor'easter, all of our computer models are locked in somewhere on the atlantic coast, exactly where it tracks will determine the impact around here. josh: of course we'll keep our eye on the forecast in denver too. mike: so far so good. josh: after the break, presidential candidates weigh in on finding common ground with their opponents. jean: and gas prices fall below a dollar in one spot, well

josh: back to commitment 2016 now, talking about gridlock. we asked the candidates to tell us how they would break down the political wall that divides the parties. here are the democrats' answers. >> i worked with a lot of republicans who didn't agree with me on 99 things out of 100, but we found the one thing where we could work together. at president i will go anywhere, talk to anyone at any time to find that common ground. of course i'll stand my ground if i think what's being asked for is contrary to america's interests. but i think there is more space. but you have to work at it every day, you have to build those relationships, you have to learn to trust each other, even if you disagree.

that some folks who run for the congress need to learn that it's not a dictatorship. it's a legislative body. you may have your ideas, you may have campaigned and told your constituents you're going to washington to do x, yoz, but you're one of 435 or one of 100. and the point is when you're actually sworn in, you take an oath to uphold the constitution, and to work on behalf of the country, as well as your constituents. and i want people to remember that. >> our politics is very divided, very, very polarized right now. and i don't think there's any way to go around it or to pole vault over it. we have to come through these times as we have before. but one of the lessons of history is that our ability to do that depends on leadership, and in particular new leadership. that's not part of the divided battles of our past.
5:23 pm
of the three candidates kawferring themselves in the democratic party, i'm the only one that has the ability to say that i haven't been part of the 30 or 40 years in washington leading this gridlock. i'm not a socialist, i don't believe in wall street crony capitalism. i believe we can fix what's wrong with our country and our economy, but we need to bring people together to do it. that's what i've always done as governor. what's what i can do as president. >> well, i'll tell you something. obviously there are huge differences of opinions in this country on a number of issues. but i will tell you something else. sometimes i think the media misses this point, that on issues about whether or not we should create millions of jobs by rebuilding our infrastructure, whether we should raise the minimum wage, whether we should have pay equity for women, where we should move aggressively in climate change, whether we
5:24 pm
free, on those issues there's a lot of unanimity, and there's also a lot of common belief that at a time of massive income and wealth inequality the wealthiest people and the largest corporations in this country will have to start paying their fair share of taxes. josh: we're going to hear from the republicans on this topic in the next half-hour. you can go to the politics section of wmur.com for this series s much more on the candidates. jean: straight ahead at 5:30, new information about lyme disease, why your risk could be higher than you realize. josh: and would you give joag aa try if it ended with a pint of beer? the new trend is bringing in a lot of newcomers. jean: now maggie didn't want her chickens to miss out on the fresh snow, so she took them for a ride on the sled.

5:27 pm
single numbers and as we advance through the day tomorrow, sub-zero at times. gusty northwesterly winds, you can't see it on the radar, but you can tell where those clouds and where the snow showers are moving, from west northwest to east southeast. and as that wind continues to crank up it's driving in bitterly cold air from that direction. notice on average steady winds of 10 to 20. but gusts up to 30 at times, so actual temperatures that are in the teens and very low 20's feel even colder. these are the wind chills, well below zero over 6,000 feet at the top of mound washington, a bitterly cold arctic 46 below. single digits to near 10 elsewhere. overnight tonight into tomorrow morning all of that frigid air to our north and west will continue to drift in. having said that no record lows over the next couple days, so we're not talking about anything unheard of for this time of year, it just that we haven't seen a lot of it as to far this winter.

(phone ringing) you can't deal with something, by ignoring it. but that's how some presidential candidates seem to be dealing with social security. americans work hard, and pay into it. so our next president needs a real plan to keep it strong.

josh: continuing our commitment 2016 series of questions for the candidates, how would you break down the political wall dividing the parties? >> when i was governor i governed in the most lopsided state in the entire country. more democrats, fewer republicans than any other state. and that surprises a lot of people. but i'll tell what you that was good for. it taught me how to govern. you win legislative battles by knowing two things, rules and relationships.
tv-commercial
5:38 pm
and build those relationships with people that don't have to work with you, you'll never be able to be effective. one of the reasons that i believe i'd be the most qualified person for the presidency is because i understand how to build a relationships and to create that kind of consensus that actually can govern effectively for everybody. we need that in america today. >> well, i've done it all my lifetime, i've put together more bipartisan proposals, whether it was welfare reform, balancing the federal budget, or whether it's in ohio lifting ohio in a variety of ways and bringing people together. it's a matter of respect and it's a matter of putting country ahead of party and ahead of politics. if you do that, show respect, reach out, find areas of agreement, you can solve this problem. >> i've done a lot of work with the other side on criminal justice reform. i think kids who make a mistake with marijuana shouldn't have a permanent exprord should get another chance.
tv-commercial
5:39 pm
admitted to drug use and they went onto become president. what happens in our country is a lot of poor kid don't get the same chance and don't get the same representation in court. so this is something i've been able to work with democrats on. i've also been able to work with democrats on protecting privacy. i think you do have a right to privacy and the government shouldn't be collecting all of our phone records or all of our credit card records. and these are two incidences where i've had good relationships with democrats. also i'm a physician, i believe in solving problems. my believe is in more freedom for people, but it isn't dependent on the party. >> there's some issues we'll have to have elections about. the democratic party is a big government party, they think issue before america can be solved with a new tax or government program. that's why we have elections. i think we can work together on national security on issues like modernizing higher education. but primarily on taxes, on
5:40 pm
government in our economy, i think those are issues we'll have to have elections over and put the right people in charge. it one of the reasons why i'm running for president. >> the best thing to do is have a president who is trustworthy and not give -- divisive. i served in the senate and got pieces of legislation passed on health care, on welfare we form, on pro-life legislation, on national security legislation. i was the author of, in many cases with a liberal democrat on the other side. you say how does that happen, because you find common ground. how can you work with liberal democrats, you're so conservative and they're so together. because you don't make it personal. you don't personally attack people. you don't go out and impugn people's motives. you can't castigate them and ridicule them in the american public and then try to sit down with them and not be honest about what you want to accomplish and expect them to work with you. they're human beings too and they should be treated with
5:41 pm
this president doesn't troat his adversaries with respect, so we have a very divisive president. jean: if the weather has you feeling down, you're not alone. in britain today is known as blue monday. it started as a publicity campaign for a travel company, it declared the third monday in january the most depressing day of the year, when the holiday cheer has worn off but we're still paying off the bills from christmas celebrations and the weather usually is a little gloomy. no blue monday in new hampshire, the cold and snow did not keep surfers from hitting the waves in rye this morning, so take that third monday in january, mike. this isn't usually surfing weather. mike: , no but they'll get out there any chance they can, and speaking of the ocean, a reminder, we're not going to be surfing out there in under three weeks, but it is the plunge on saturday the 6th, and the
