11:19 pm
certainly some gusts of wind. sunny day. you wouldn't even know that the system was passing through. all of a sudden, it is starting to wind down and move even more off the coastline. really, we were just a couple miles away from getting at least a dusting. look at the comparisons between mass. about four inches of snow in salem, mass. they're only about 25 miles apart from each other. it would have literally been the difference of a few miles. we just didn't see anything. the track of this system had been pushing it off. and high pressure up to the north of us has been acting like a shield and keeping this system suppressed and pushed down towards the south. north. today temperatures were only in the 20's across the area. now, how are we doing for snowfall so far? in the month of december, we've had 12.4 inches so far for the
11:20 pm
the winter season, in concord. compare that to some of the totals i showed you at the top of the show for new york and philadelphia, where they easily have doubled that just within this one system. we're kind of lacking here a little bit. the average for this time is about 30 inches. we're well below that and certainly well below what we had at this time last year. here are the current temperature readings, with the clouds in place over central and southern new hampshire. look at berlin, seven below, because of clear skies and the snow on the ground there. that is the recipe for some real cold air. so it will be a big difference from north to south tonight with the low temperature readings. the winds also are active too, especially at the seacoast. there could be gusts upwards of 20, 30 miles per hour overnight tonight. here we are, 7:00 tomorrow morning. and it's only the cape and the islands that have clouds from this system. the rest of us, back to full sunshine and all day tomorrow looks good.
11:21 pm
clouds late in the day. there might be a few mountain snow showers during the evening and overnight hours and into monday. doesn't look like anything too heavy. so here's a breakdown of the temperatures. looks like berlin was already gotten colder than our low here. lakes region and point to the north will be very cold tonight, probably single decision. then you -- single digits. other areas with the clouds in place, it will be tougher to get there. tomorrow, a few degrees warmer than where we were even today, with light winds, lots of sunshine. it will be a great day to go out and do some skiing or maybe snowboarding. we'll warm up into the 20's later on. nothing too bad that would stop any of the chair lifts from going. big game, of course, tomorrow. go, pats! 3:05 is the kickoff.
11:22 pm
shouldn't be a problem for mr. brady and gronk to get out there. no weather issues. as for us, we will have a few showers getting in here on tuesday and wednesday of next week. i say showers because it will be warm enough for that. you can see on tuesday about 40 degrees. 39 wednesday and then at the end of the week, that's when we start to cool things down again. so we're in a little bit of a temperature roller coaster the next few days. >> hard to believe that west virginia is getting up to 30 inches of snow and we're talking about rain. >> believe it or not, west virginia actually got 40 inches of snow in some spots. that's degrees! >> that is crazy snow. it's not snowing in denver right now. that's where jason king is. jim foley has all the details. >> denver is the place to be. that's where we find jason to help us get ready for tomorrow's big game. jason, how is it going down there? reporter: not bad. it's about 20 degrees colder than it was earlier today. but we'll take it!
11:23 pm
the patriots and the broncos, gametime, 3:05 tomorrow. one announcer: where do you line up with john kasich on the issues? take the kasich quiz! forced obamacare expansion in ohio. voted for massive defense cuts and defended the process that closed pease air force base, which cost thousands of local jobs. even had the worst rating on spending of any governor in the country - republican or democrat. john kasich - wrong on new hampshire issues. right to rise usa is responsible for the content of this message. congress doesn't regulate wall street... wall street regulates congress. it's a rigged economy that sends most new wealth to the top 1%. and it's held in place by a corrupt political system where wall street banks and billionaires buy elections. my campaign is funded by over two and a half million small contributions. people who know you can't level the playing field by taking more money

and i approve this message. join the fight to take back our government. [ horn honks ] okay, this is u.s. cellular, and this is verizon. now, same phones, but with u.s. cellular you get 6 gigs of 4g data for only $40 per month -- $20 less than verizon. and u.s. cellular's network was built to work in places like out here, here, and here. so, with all of that, why would you ever go to verizon? switch to u.s. cellular now and get 6 gigs of data for just $40 a month plus get $300 back. let's not overthink this. the person who lives here... has to solve problems as big as the world... and as small as your kitchen table. that's the job. everyday. and now, the first lady who helped get healthcare for eight million kids... the senator who helped a city rise again... the secretary of state who stood up for america, and stared down hostile leaders around the world. is the one candidate for president who has
11:25 pm
she'll never let anyone privatize social security and medicare... or shut down planned parenthood... she'll take on the gun lobby... finally get equal pay for women... and stop the republicans from ripping all our progress away. so on february ninth, stand up for hillary. because if you want a president who knows how to keep america safe... and build a stronger economy... hillary's the choice. "i'm listening to you, i'm fighting for you, and with your support, i'm going to deliver." i'm hillary clinton and i

11:28 pm
so, you know, you've got to be at your best. you know, you can't play anything less than your best and expect to win. >> we have to run the ball, for us to stay balanced. you know, for us to be successful this week. and, you know, that's what we're going to do. and, you know, that's just what we do. and, you know, everybody knows it. and, you know, we just have to hit them in the mouth. >> but we're going on the road, into denver. their fans are going to be loud. they're going to be ready. and it's the denver broncos, very solid team, very, very solid defense. we just have got to be ready mentally and physically. reporter: all right. so two of the top teams in the nfl. and obviously the two best in the a.f.c., squaring off tomorrow at 3:05 eastern time. it's 1:05 here in denver. tomorrow night at this time, we'll definitely know if the patriots are on their way to their ninth super bowl in franchise history. tom brady trying to win his fifth super bowl, which would be unprecedented for a quarterback. so that's it from denver.
