tom: it's another week of winter featuring a warmup rather than a snowstorm. jennifer: of course this is quite the sharp contrast from a year ago when an
active pattern was setting up to bring new hampshire near record snowfall. so what gives? meteorologist josh judge is here to take a look at a unique kind of january. josh: it really has been a
entire season up until now. so i thought we should compare history. so far just over a foot of snow in concord, so far. and we could see that, if that ends up being at the, that it goes that way until the end of january, we could be putting this on the records.
we'll take a look that's in a moment. that breaks down to no snow that we've seen in november. 4.4 inches december. and 8 inches in january. so where does that fall in the record books? well, currently we are in fifth place, and this assumes no more snow before february, which would be another week or so. it certainly could. place. but look at the years in front of us, as recently as 1988 to 89 and in number one, 19, excuse me, we have a couple years in there that weren't that far away. now, take a look at how much
years got at the end of the season. they all were well below that 64.5 inches, which is the average. so thus far there has never been a winter that has had this little snow to this point and we've ended up above average snowfall. doesn't mean we won't this year, but that's what we've seen in history. i guess the guy to ask about that is mike. anything coming up? mike: the next couple of days will be tough to get
a big snow cover except in the north country. we finally turned the corner in terms of starting to get a film of ice out there at the weirs. still some broken water in some spots near the shore. but even despite the warmup today, near 50 in parts of southern new hampshire. 40's to the north. still hanging onto a little ice, of course not nearly thick enough to support you out there. so it's not safe to venture out on the ice just yet. a ways to go, and mild pattern holds on, even though we do cool down a little bit. with we still remain above the norm all week and even into and
snow shower chances, one will be very late tonight and tomorrow, mainly in the north country, and after a dry thursday the next chance will come in later on friday. actually later thursday night into friday and then maybe again later on saturday. but no big snowstorms to speak of, at least for the next week or so. couple of sprinkles darting through the north country, most of central, southern new hampshire in the clear. a few more sprinkles may work on through later this evening and overnight tonight. but in central and southern parts of the state nainly dry. couple more snow showers upstream, they'll pivot in later tonight. how about the highs today, making a run even up north in the mid 40's. 28 atop mount washington. and 40's to around 50 in extreme southern parts of the state. 46, by the way, again, 15 above the average. not out that cool right now, even though the sun is down, it is below freezing in plymouth, but everyone else below 3,000 or
overnight tonight not a big temperature fall, a few clouds building on through. upper 20's north, lower 30's south. so those stand right at the average for daytime high this is time of year. so it's really not all that chilly tonight. and early tomorrow morning. having said that, there is some cold air building in from the north and west, so temperatures will dip just a little bit over the next couple of days. but still remain above the average. you notice the jet stream flow from southwest to northeast, tough to get a major cooldown with that happening. and speaking of cooler air, as temperatures dip just enough late tonight and tomorrow, the best chance of snow showers will be up north. here's a look at future cast, notice the skies tend to clear in southern areas by early tomorrow morning. clouds and snow showers will hang tough across the mountains. there could be a in your in southern new hampshire tomorrow, but for the most part it will be dry. then moving beyond thursday, the next chance of snow showers, as you can see, will be later thursday night into friday. but most of those will fall across the north country. could see a light accumulation
or flurries later on saturday, into saturday night. and then once that front moves through, temperatures head higher again, by sunday up to 40 plus, and early next week into the mid 40's. next storm chance of rain or a mix or even a bit of snow, not until probably late wednesday or wednesday night of next week. tom: very good. keep us posted. >> we are going back 30 years ago today. you remember tom when that was a fancy graphics package there, don't you?
