7:06 am
up into the 30's and 40's again, that's why the lakes are having trouble freezing, of course, and northern new hampshire we're in the 20's throughout much of the granite state there. a few differences in the mount washington valley. all right, lots of clouds for sure, but you notice the darker and lighter spots that's thicker and thinner portions, up to the west, where our weather is coming from, there are many thin spots. i expect to see partial sunshine at times today. that teamed up with the mild air in place does mean that it will be another decent day out there for today. certainly a lot of clouds and milder than yesterday. 5 to as much as 10 degrees warmer than where we were yesterday, depending on your location. this is a cold front that will roll through tomorrow afternoon. so, milder air in front of it and slightly cooler air for tuesday behind it. tomorrow, this could bring a spot shower to new hampshire, but most places won't see it. here is that surge of warmth
7:07 am
