6:16 pm
jennifer: we have seen some mild stretches this winter, and that's created problems for many ice. tom: sure has, but the puck will drop on the black ice pond hockey tournament in concord tomorrow as scheduled. that's where we find meteorologist hayley lapoint tonight. hayley: yes, i was just talking with some of the folks and they're saying there are some spots where it's a little wet, a little slimy. but if you look behind me, it's frozen up solid in most spots. so they're ready to go for the festivities that kick off tomorrow. here's the forecast if you plan to come and check it out. this is definitely one of the coolest winter events, even just to come and watch.
6:17 pm
people out here playing. tomorrow looks like a mostly cloudy day. we do have the cans of a few light flurries that pass through especially after the noon hour for up here in concord. then on saturday, another day where we'll see some clouds, a little sunshine, and then also a small chance of flurries in the evening. sunday looks like the best day, at least for spectators. but look at the temperatures, they go up into the 40's. so it gets much more mild again as we get into the latter part of the weekend. back here at white park in concord, tomorrow they kick things off, they've got fireworks tomorrow night, and they'll have bonfires tomorrow and saturday. you. mike: sounds like a lot of fun up there. weather should cooperate, no major storms to contend with. temperatures today another run to 40 plus in concord. 31 is the average. so 10 above that and no snow out there, although we could see just a little bit tomorrow in the form of snow showers.
6:18 pm
because if you recall a year ago yesterday we had quite a monster nor'easter with some spots getting over 30 inches of snow on the mass-new hampshire border. so the average snowfall to date, 33.4. so far this season, just barely over a foot. last year at this time, close to 40 inches of snow, thanks again to that monster nor'easter that occurred a year ago yesterday and wrapped up early this morning. as for the snow showers up north, they're winding down. a few scattered flurries can't be ruled out this evening. upper 20's in plymouth, but many in the 30's. as for overnight lows tonight with a few clouds moving in, gentle winds out of the south. not all that cold, well above the average. keep in mind the normal high this time of year is at 31. we're only going to be about five or six below that in concord early tomorrow morning. so not a whole lot of cold air to support a big snow event.
6:19 pm
weak dnls building in from the west, quite a bit of energy that will spawn an ocean storm well out to sea. but these two will get their act together and kickback a weak disturbance tomorrow for scattered snow showers, mid morning through the afternoon. tough to call exactly where they'll light up. future cast tries to payment on a dry scenario through the early part of the morning commute. right at the tail end clouds thicken and scattered snow showers can develop. any show showers wind down early tomorrow evening. a dry saturday, then a warm front approach degrees the west late in the day. that could trigger a snow shower up north, maybe a flurry south saturday evening. once that front clears, we're right back into the mild zone again. as for tonight again not all that cold with the clouds off the increase, could be a few flurries towards morning. but the better shot, as you can see by sky cast, will be late morning and early afternoon with the mainly cloudy sky there and once we get past tomorrow
6:20 pm
some partial sun early on saturday. temperatures all above average, even though they're slightly cooler the next couple of days with scattered snow showers late morning on for friday and up north late on saturday, notice where we go from sunday in the mid 40's, possibly near 50 on monday. a slight cooldown but still more than 10 above average on tuesday. and on wednesday. the next storm will likely start as rain or a rain-ice mix, early in the morning and then go over to all rain, then it clears out and cools down, but still above average on thursday. when you get these runs of days above average temperature, you just wonder if we will set the all-time low snowfall record. but nowhere close just yet. tom: very good, thank you. jason? >> i know you guys like skiing,
