mike: take a look at the time lapse out at the lakes region. fairly quiet until right around 2:30. what you are looking at is a mix of snow showers and grapple, a mix of snowflakes and very cold droplets of water. the water freezes as i crystals and you end up with little snow pellets. that' s what we had on the lake by midafternoon before the sun went down. a thin film of eyes, not big enough to venture out there. the high today 44 in concord, 31 is the average, so well above that yet again today but nowhere close to the record high of 60
any mixed showers gone by mid-to-late afternoon. a little more active back to the west. the next disturbance will spring over new hampshire friday kicking up scattered snow showers but most in the northern and western part of the state. chilly up north, 12 a top mount washington, 20' s for many. tonight much colder than last night, single digits far north, a couple of low 20' s in rochester and down toward the coast and manchester and nashua as well. temperatures across the country, will still remain above the norm. once that clears later saturday, here comes mild air yet again, at least 10-15 degrees above average starting sunday and lasting into monday of next week. one system we are tracking between now and the start of the
lots of sun tomorrow, a few high clouds in the afternoon. next disturbance will be close by on friday. could be passing snow shower during the afternoon anywhere else. another weak system approaches saturday but that may trigger a few flurries or light snow showers in the afternoon or evening. once that clears, 30' s give way to 40' s again and they could be mid to upper 40' s and possibly near 50 on monday. monday the first of february. that is something else. signs of cooler air preceded by a storm on wednesday, maybe more snow.

i'm bernie sanders, and i approve this message. jeb bush once stood tall. before his campaign sank like a rock and he started desperately slinging mud on fellow republicans.
that's not presidential, jeb. john kasich did cut ohio's taxes. cut state spending. turned a deficit into a surplus. brought back jobs from mexico and china. that's john kasich, that's conservative, and that's presidential. new day for america is responsible for the content of
